Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Bezalel made the chest of acacia wood. It was forty-five inches long, twenty-seven inches wide, and twenty-seven inches high. 1 Bezalel made the ark of acacia wood--two and a half cubits long, a cubit and a half wide, and a cubit and a half high.
2 He covered the chest with pure gold inside and out, and made a gold molding all around it. 2 He overlaid it with pure gold, both inside and out, and made a gold molding around it.
3 He cast four gold rings for it and put them on its four feet, two rings on one side and two rings on the other. 3 He cast four gold rings for it and fastened them to its four feet, with two rings on one side and two rings on the other.
4 He made acacia-wood poles and covered them with gold. 4 Then he made poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold.
5 He put the poles into the rings on the chest's sides to use to carry the chest. 5 And he inserted the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark to carry it.
6 He made a cover for the chest out of pure gold, forty-five inches long and twenty-seven inches wide. 6 He made the atonement cover of pure gold--two and a half cubits long and a cubit and a half wide.
7 He made two winged heavenly creatures of hammered gold for the two ends of the cover, 7 Then he made two cherubim out of hammered gold at the ends of the cover.
8 one winged heavenly creature at one end and one winged heavenly creature at the other. He placed the winged heavenly creatures at the cover's two ends. 8 He made one cherub on one end and the second cherub on the other; at the two ends he made them of one piece with the cover.
9 The winged heavenly creatures spread out their wings above, shielding the cover with their wings. The winged heavenly creatures faced each other toward the cover's center. 9 The cherubim had their wings spread upward, overshadowing the cover with them. The cherubim faced each other, looking toward the cover.
10 He also made the table of acacia wood, three feet long, eighteen inches wide, and twenty-seven inches high. 10 They made the table of acacia wood--two cubits long, a cubit wide, and a cubit and a half high.
11 He covered it with pure gold and made a gold molding all around it. 11 Then they overlaid it with pure gold and made a gold molding around it.
12 He made a frame around it that was four inches wide and gold molding around the frame. 12 They also made around it a rim a handbreadth wide and put a gold molding on the rim.
13 He made four gold rings for the table. He fastened the rings to the four corners at its four legs. 13 They cast four gold rings for the table and fastened them to the four corners, where the four legs were.
14 The rings that housed the poles used for carrying the table were close to the frame. 14 The rings were put close to the rim to hold the poles used in carrying the table.
15 He made the poles used to carry the table out of acacia wood, and he covered them with gold. 15 The poles for carrying the table were made of acacia wood and were overlaid with gold.
16 He made the containers of pure gold that were to be on the table: its plates, dishes, bowls, and jars for pouring drink offerings. 16 And they made from pure gold the articles for the table--its plates and dishes and bowls and its pitchers for the pouring out of drink offerings.
17 He also made the lampstand of pure, hammered gold. The lampstand's base, branches, cups, flowers, and petals were all attached to it. 17 They made the lampstand of pure gold and hammered it out, base and shaft; its flowerlike cups, buds and blossoms were of one piece with it.
18 It had six branches growing out from its sides, three branches on one side of the lampstand and three branches on the other side of the lampstand. 18 Six branches extended from the sides of the lampstand--three on one side and three on the other.
19 One branch had three cups shaped like almond blossoms, each with a flower and petals, and the next branch also had three cups shaped like almond blossoms, each with a flower and petals. A total of six branches grew out of the lampstand. 19 Three cups shaped like almond flowers with buds and blossoms were on one branch, three on the next branch and the same for all six branches extending from the lampstand.
20 In addition, on the lampstand itself there were four cups shaped like almond blossoms, each with its flower and petals. 20 And on the lampstand were four cups shaped like almond flowers with buds and blossoms.
21 There was a flower attached under the first pair of branches, a flower attached under the next pair of branches, and a flower attached under the last pair of branches. 21 One bud was under the first pair of branches extending from the lampstand, a second bud under the second pair, and a third bud under the third pair--six branches in all.
22 Their flowers and their branches were attached to it. The whole lampstand was one piece of pure hammered gold. 22 The buds and the branches were all of one piece with the lampstand, hammered out of pure gold.
23 He made its seven lamps and its tongs and its fire pans out of pure gold. 23 They made its seven lamps, as well as its wick trimmers and trays, of pure gold.
24 He made the lampstand and all its equipment from pure gold weighing one kikkar. 24 They made the lampstand and all its accessories from one talent of pure gold.
25 He made the incense altar out of acacia wood. The altar was square, eighteen inches long by eighteen inches wide. It was three feet high, and its horns were permanently attached. 25 They made the altar of incense out of acacia wood. It was square, a cubit long and a cubit wide, and two cubits high--its horns of one piece with it.
26 He covered it with pure gold, including its top, all its sides, and its horns. He also made a gold molding all around it. 26 They overlaid the top and all the sides and the horns with pure gold, and made a gold molding around it.
27 He made two gold rings, and he attached them under the molding on two opposite sides of the altar. They housed the poles used to carry it. 27 They made two gold rings below the molding--two on opposite sides--to hold the poles used to carry it.
28 He made the poles of acacia wood, and he covered them with gold. 28 They made the poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold.
29 He also made the holy anointing oil and the pure sweet-smelling incense like a skilled perfume maker. 29 They also made the sacred anointing oil and the pure, fragrant incense--the work of a perfumer.
