"Have them make a chest1 of acacia wood--two and a half cubits long, a cubit and a half wide, and a cubit and a half high.a11
Overlay2 it with pure gold, both inside and out, and make a gold molding around it.
Cast four gold rings for it and fasten them to its four feet, with two rings3 on one side and two rings on the other.
Then make poles of acacia wood and overlay them with gold.414
Insert the poles5 into the rings on the sides of the chest to carry it.
The poles are to remain in the rings of this ark; they are not to be removed.6
