"Make a lampstand of pure, hammered gold. The entire lampstand and its decorations will be one piece -- the base, center stem, lamp cups, buds, and blossoms.
It will have six branches, three branches going out from each side of the center stem.
Each of the six branches will hold a cup shaped like an almond blossom, complete with buds and petals.
The center stem of the lampstand will be decorated with four almond blossoms, complete with buds and petals.
One blossom will be set beneath each pair of branches where they extend from the center stem.
The decorations and branches must all be one piece with the stem, and they must be hammered from pure gold.
Then make the seven lamps for the lampstand, and set them so they reflect their light forward.
The lamp snuffers and trays must also be made of pure gold.
You will need seventy-five pounds a of pure gold for the lampstand and its accessories."
"Be sure that you make everything according to the pattern I have shown you here on the mountain."
