"And you shall make a lampstand of pure gold. The base and the shaft of the lampstand shall be made of hammered work; its cups, its capitals, and its flowers shall be of one piece with it;
and there shall be six branches going out of its sides, three branches of the lampstand out of one side of it and three branches of the lampstand out of the other side of it;
three cups made like almonds, each with capital and flower, on one branch, and three cups made like almonds, each with capital and flower, on the other branch--so for the six branches going out of the lampstand;
and on the lampstand itself four cups made like almonds, with their capitals and flowers,
and a capital of one piece with it under each pair of the six branches going out from the lampstand.
Their capitals and their branches shall be of one piece with it, the whole of it one piece of hammered work of pure gold.
And you shall make the seven lamps for it; and the lamps shall be set up so as to give light upon the space in front of it.
Its snuffers and their trays shall be of pure gold.
Of a talent of pure gold shall it be made, with all these utensils.
And see that you make them after the pattern for them, which is being shown you on the mountain.
