And have them make me a sanctuary, so that I may dwell among them.
In accordance with all that I show you concerning the pattern of the tabernacle and of all its furniture, so you shall make it.
They shall make an ark of acacia wood; it shall be two and a half cubits long, a cubit and a half wide, and a cubit and a half high.
You shall overlay it with pure gold, inside and outside you shall overlay it, and you shall make a molding of gold upon it all around.
You shall cast four rings of gold for it and put them on its four feet, two rings on the one side of it, and two rings on the other side.
You shall make poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with gold.
And you shall put the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark, by which to carry the ark.
