International Standard Version
1Bezalel made the ark of acacia wood two and a half cubits long, one and a half cubits wide, and one and a half cubits high. 2He overlaid it with pure gold, inside and outside, and made a gold molding around it. 3He cast four rings for it on its four feet, two rings on one side of it and two rings on its other side. 4He made poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold. 5He put the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark to carry it. 6He made a Mercy Seat of pure gold two and a half cubits long and one and a half cubits wide. 7He made two cherubim of gold; he made them of hammered work at the two ends of the Mercy Seat. 8One cherub was at one end and one cherub at the other end. He made the cherubim at the two ends of the Mercy Seat and of one piece with it. 9The cherubim had their wings spread upward, covering the Mercy Seat with their wings and facing each other. The faces of the cherubim were turned toward the Mercy Seat.
10Then he made a table of acacia wood two cubits long, one cubit wide, and one and a half cubits high. 11He overlaid it with pure gold and put a gold molding around it. 12He made a rim one handbreadth wide around it, and made a gold molding around the rim. 13He cast four gold rings for it and put the rings on the four corners where its four feet were. 14The rings were close to the rim as holders for the poles to carry the table. 15He made the poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold to carry the table. 16He made the utensils which were on the table, its plates, dishes, bowls, and jars out of which libations are poured. He made them of pure gold.
17He made the lamp stand of pure gold. He made the lamp stand, its base, and stem of hammered work and its cups, calyxes, and flowers were of one piece with it. 18Six branches extended from its sides, three branches of the lamp stand from one side of it, and three branches of the lamp stand from its other side. 19Three cups shaped like almond blossoms with calyxes and flowers were on one branch and three cups shaped like almond blossoms with calyxes and flowers were on the other branch, and so on for the six branches extending from the lamp stand. 20On the lamp stand itself there were four cups shaped like almond blossoms each with their calyxes and flowers. 21A calyx was under the two branches that extended out of the stem; a calyx was under the next pair of branches that extended out of the stem; and a calyx was under the last pair of branches that extended out of the stem, and so on for the six branches extending from the lamp stand. 22Their calyxes and their branches were of one piece with it, all of it was of one piece of hammered work of pure gold. 23He made its seven lamps, its tongs, and its trays from pure gold. 24He made it and all of its furnishings from a talent of pure gold.
25He made the altar for burning incense of acacia wood, a square, one cubit long, one cubit wide, and two cubits high, with its horns of one piece with it. 26He overlaid it with pure gold—its top, its sides all around, and its horns—and he made a gold molding around it. 27He made two gold rings for it under its molding, on its two opposite sides, as holders for poles by which to carry it. 28He made the poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold. 29And he made the holy anointing oil and the pure aromatic incense, the work of a perfumer.
