Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Bez'alel made the ark of acacia wood; two cubits and a half was its length, a cubit and a half its breadth, and a cubit and a half its height. 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 And he overlaid it with pure gold within and without, and made a molding of gold around it. 2 He overlaid it with pure gold, both inside and out, and made a gold molding around it.
3 And he cast for it four rings of gold for its four corners, two rings on its one side and two rings on its other side. 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 And he made poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with gold, 4 Then he made poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold.
5 and put the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark, to carry the ark. 5 And he inserted the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark to carry it.
6 And he made a mercy seat of pure gold; two cubits and a half was its length, and a cubit and a half its breadth. 6 He made the atonement cover of pure gold--two and a half cubits long and a cubit and a half wide.
7 And he made two cherubim of hammered gold; on the two ends of the mercy seat he made them, 7 Then he made two cherubim out of hammered gold at the ends of the cover.
8 one cherub on the one end, and one cherub on the other end; of one piece with the mercy seat he made the cherubim on its 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 cherubim spread out their wings above, overshadowing the mercy seat with their wings, with their faces one to another; toward the mercy seat were the faces of the cherubim. 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; two cubits was its length, a cubit its breadth, and a cubit and a half its height; 10 They made the table of acacia wood--two cubits long, a cubit wide, and a cubit and a half high.
11 and he overlaid it with pure gold, and made a molding of gold around it. 11 Then they overlaid it with pure gold and made a gold molding around it.
12 And he made around it a frame a handbreadth wide, and made a molding of gold around the frame. 12 They also made around it a rim a handbreadth wide and put a gold molding on the rim.
13 He cast for it four rings of gold, and 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 Close to the frame were the rings, as holders for the poles to carry the table. 14 The rings were put close to the rim to hold the poles used in carrying the table.
15 He made the poles of acacia wood to carry the table, and overlaid them with gold. 15 The poles for carrying the table were made of acacia wood and were overlaid with gold.
16 And he made the vessels of pure gold which were to be upon the table, its plates and dishes for incense, and its bowls and flagons with which to pour libations. 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 gold. The base and the shaft of the lampstand were made of hammered work; its cups, its capitals, and its flowers were of one piece with 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 And there were 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; 18 Six branches extended from the sides of the lampstand--three on one side and three on the other.
19 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. 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 And on the lampstand itself were four cups made like almonds, with their capitals and flowers, 20 And on the lampstand were four cups shaped like almond flowers with buds and blossoms.
21 and a capital of one piece with it under each pair of the six branches going out of it. 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 capitals and their branches were of one piece with it; the whole of it was one piece of hammered work of pure gold. 22 The buds and the branches were all of one piece with the lampstand, hammered out of pure gold.
23 And he made its seven lamps and its snuffers and its trays of pure gold. 23 They made its seven lamps, as well as its wick trimmers and trays, of pure gold.
24 He made it and all its utensils of a talent of pure gold. 24 They made the lampstand and all its accessories from one talent of pure gold.
25 He made the altar of incense of acacia wood; its length was a cubit, and its breadth was a cubit; it was square, and two cubits was its height; its horns were of one piece with it. 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 overlaid it with pure gold, its top, and its sides round about, and its horns; and he made a molding of gold round about it, 26 They overlaid the top and all the sides and the horns with pure gold, and made a gold molding around it.
27 and made two rings of gold on it under its molding, on two opposite sides of it, as holders for the poles with which 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 And he made the poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with gold. 28 They made the poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold.
29 He made the holy anointing oil also, and the pure fragrant incense, blended as by the perfumer. 29 They also made the sacred anointing oil and the pure, fragrant incense--the work of a perfumer.
