he made the staves [of] shittim wood, and overlaid them 7 with brass. And he put the staves into the rings on the sides

of the altar, to bear it withal ; he made the altar hollow with

boards. 8 And he made the laver [of] brass, and the foot of it [of]

brass, of the looking glasses of [the women) (which were all made of polished brass assembling, which assembled [at] the

door of the tabernacle of the congregation. 9 And he made the court : on the south side southward the

22 hand of Ithamar, son to Aaron the priest. And Bezaleel

the son o Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, made all 23 that the LORD commanded Moses. And with him [was 7

Aholiab, son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, an engraver,

and a cunning workman, and an embroiderer in blue, and in 24 purple, and in scarlet, and in fine linen. All the gold that

was occupied for the work in all the work of the holy [place,] even the gold of the offering, was twenty and nine talents,

and seven hundred and thirty shekels, after the shekel of the 25 sanctuary.* And the silver of them that were numbered of

the congregation (was] an hundred talents, and a thousand

seven hundred and threescore and fifteen shekels, after the 26 shekel of the sanctuary :f A bekah for every man, [that is,

half a shekel, after the shekel of the sanctuary, for every one that went to be numbered, from twenty years old and upward,

A cloths of service, to do service in the holy [place,] and made the holy garments for Aaron ; as the LORD command*ed Moses. 2 And he made the ephod [of] gold, blue, and purple, and 3 scarlet, and fine twined linen. And they did beat the gold

into thin plates, and cut [it into] wires, to work [it] in the

blue, and in the purple, and in the scarlet, and in the fine lin4 en, [with] cunning work. They made shoulder pieces for it,

to couple [it] together : by the two edges was it coupled to

gether. 5And the curious girdle of his ephod, that (was] upon it,

[was] of the same, according to the work thereof; [of]

gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen; as 6 the LORD commanded Moses. And they wrought onyx

stones enclosed in ouches of gold, graven, as signets are grav7 en, with the names of the children of Israel. And he put

them on the shoulders of the ephod, [that they should be] stones for a memorial to the children of Israel ; as the LORD

commanded Moses. 8 And he made the breastplate [of] cunning work, like the

work of the ephod ; [of] gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, 9 and fine twined linen. It was foursquare ; they made the

breastplate double : a span (was] the length thereof, and a to span the breadth thereof, [being] doubled. And they set in

it four rows of stones : [the first row [was] a sardius, a to11 paz, and a carbuncle : this [was] the first row. And the 12 second row, an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond. And 13 the third row, a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst. And

the fourth row, a beryl, an onyx, and a jasper : [they were] 14 enclosed in ouches of gold in their enclosings. And the stones

[were] according to the names of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names, [like] the engravings of a

signet, every one with his name, according to the twelve 15 tribes. And they made upon the breastplate chains at the 16 ends, [of] wreathen work [of] pure gold. And they made

two ouches [of] gold, and two gold rings, and put the two 17 rings in the two ends of the brcastplate. And they put the

two wreathen chains of gold in the two rings on the ends of 18 the breastplate. And the two ends of the two wreathen chains

they fastened in the two ouches, and put them on the shoulder 19 pieces of the ephod, before it. And they made two rings of

gold, and put [them] on the two ends of the breastplate, upon

the border of it, which (was) on the side of the ephod inward. 20 And they made two [other] golden rings, and put them on

the two sides of the ephod underneath, toward the forepart of

it, over against the (other) coupling thereof, above the curious 21 girdle of the ephod. And they did bind the breastplate by

his rings unto the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it might be above the curious girdle of the ephod, and that the breastplate might not be loosed from the ephod; as the LORD

commanded Moses. 22 And he made the robe of the ephod [of] woven work, all 23 [of] blue. And [there was] an hole in the midst of the robe,

as the hole of an habergeon, [with] a band round about the 24 hole, that it should not rend. And they made upon the hems

of the robe pomegranates [of] blue, and purple, and scarlet, 25 [and] twined [linen.] And they made bells [of] pure gold,

and put the bells between the pomegranates upon the hem of 26 the robe, round about, between the pomegranates ; A bell and

a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, round about the hem of the robe to minister [in ;] as the LORD commanded

Moses. 27 And they made coats [of] fine linen [of] woven work for 28 Aaron and for his sons, And a mitre [of] fine linen, and good

ly bonnets [of] fine linen, and linen breeches [of] fine twined 29 linen, And a girdle [of] fine twined linen, and blue, and pur

ple, and scarlet, [of] needle work; as the LORD commanded Moses.

And they made the plate of the holy crown [of] pure gold, and wrote upon it a writing, [like to] the engravings of a signet, HOLINESS TO THE LORD. And they tied unto it a lace of blue, to fasten [it] on high upon the mitre ; as the

LORD commanded Moses. 32 Thus was all the work of the tabernacle of the tent of the

congregation finished : and the children of Israel did accord

ing to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so did they. 33 And they brought the tabernacle unto Moses, the tent, and

all his furniture, his taches, his boards, his bars, and his pil. 34 lars, and his sockets, And the covering of rams' skins dyed

red, and the covering of badgers' skips, and the veil of the 35 covering, The ark of the testimony, and the staves thereof, 36 and the mercy seat, The table, [and] all the vessels thereof, 37 and the shew bread, The pure candlestick, [with] the lamps

thereof, (even with] the lamps to be set in order, and all the 38 vessels thereof, and the oil for light, And the golden altar,

and the anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and the hanging 39 for the tabernacle door, The brazen altar, and his grate of

brass, his staves, and all his vessels, the laver and his foot, 40 The hangings of the court, his pillars, and his sockets, and

the hanging for the court gate, his cords, and his pins, and all

the vessels of the service of the tabernacle, for the tent of the 41 congregation, The cloths of service to do service in the holy

[place,] and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and his 42 sons' garments, to minister in the priest's office. According

to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so the children of 43 Israel made all the work. And Moses did look upon all the

work, and, behold, they had done it as the LORD had commanded, even so had they done it : and Moses blessed them : as God's minister, he pronounced a blessing in his name, both on the people, for their liberal contributions, and on the workmen, for their care and industry. Vol. I.
