12 and four golden rings, which thou shalt set by [the] four corners of the ark; two rings be in [the] one side, and two rings in the other side. (and thou shalt make four gold rings, which thou shalt fasten to the four corners of the Ark; two rings shall be on one side of it, and two rings shall be on the other side.) 12 Cast four gold rings for it and fasten them to its four feet, with two rings on one side and two rings on the other.

19 one cherub be on one side of God's answering place, and the tother in the tother side; cover they ever either side of the propitiatory, (one cherub shall be at one end of the lid, and the other cherub shall be at the other end of the lid; and the cherubim shall be made so that they form one piece with the propitiatory,) 19 Make one cherub on one end and the second cherub on the other; make the cherubim of one piece with the cover, at the two ends.
20 and hold they forth the(ir) wings, and cover they God's answering place; and behold they themselves together, while their faces be turned in to the propitiatory, (and their wings shall be spread out, and they shall cover the lid; and they shall face each other, but their faces shall be turned down toward the propitiatory,) 20 The cherubim are to have their wings spread upward, overshadowing the cover with them. The cherubim are to face each other, looking toward the cover.

22 From thence I shall command, and I shall speak to thee above the propitiatory, that is, from the midst of [the] two cherubims, that shall be on the ark of witnessing, all things which I shall command by thee to the sons of Israel. (From there I shall command, and I shall speak to thee from above the propitiatory, that is, from the midst of the two cherubim, who shall be over the Ark of the Witnessing, all the things which I shall command by thee to the Israelites.) 22 There, above the cover between the two cherubim that are over the ark of the Testimony, I will meet with you and give you all my commands for the Israelites.
23 Also thou shalt make a board of the wood of shittim, having two cubits of length, and one cubit of broadness, and one cubit and an half in height.

27 Under the crown shall be (the) golden rings, that the bars be put through them, and so the table may be borne. (And the gold rings shall be fastened near the rim, for the bars to be put through, so that the table can be carried.) 27 The rings are to be close to the rim to hold the poles used in carrying the table.

31 And thou shalt make a candlestick beaten out with an hammer, of cleanest gold, [and] thou shalt make the shaft thereof, and [the] rods, and cups, and little roundels, and lilies coming forth thereof. (And thou shalt make a lamp-stand out of pure gold, beaten out with a hammer, yea, thou shalt make its shaft, and the rods, and cups, and little balls, and lilies, that shall all come forth from it.) 31 "Make a lampstand of pure gold and hammer it out, base and shaft; its flowerlike cups, buds and blossoms shall be of one piece with it.
32 Six rods shall go out of the sides (of it), three (out) of the one side, and three (out) of the other. 32 Six branches are to extend from the sides of the lampstand--three on one side and three on the other.
