American Standard Version (ASV) New International Version (NIV)
10 And they shall make an ark of acacia wood: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof. 10 "Have them make a chest of acacia wood--two and a half cubits long, a cubit and a half wide, and a cubit and a half high.
11 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, within and without shalt thou overlay it, and shalt make upon it a crown of gold round about. 11 Overlay it with pure gold, both inside and out, and make a gold molding around it.
12 And thou shalt cast four rings of gold for it, and put them in the four feet thereof; and two rings shall be on the one side of it, and two rings on the other side of it. 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.
13 And thou shalt make staves of acacia wood, and overlay them with gold. 13 Then make poles of acacia wood and overlay them with gold.
14 And thou shalt put the staves into the rings on the sides of the ark, wherewith to bear the ark. 14 Insert the poles into the rings on the sides of the chest to carry it.
15 The staves shall be in the rings of the ark: they shall not be taken from it. 15 The poles are to remain in the rings of this ark; they are not to be removed.
16 And thou shalt put into the ark the testimony which I shall give thee. 16 Then put in the ark the Testimony, which I will give you.
17 And thou shalt make a mercy-seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half [shall be] the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof. 17 "Make an atonement cover of pure gold--two and a half cubits long and a cubit and a half wide.
18 And thou shalt make two cherubim of gold; of beaten work shalt thou make them, at the two ends of the mercy-seat. 18 And make two cherubim out of hammered gold at the ends of the cover.
19 And make one cherub at the one end, and one cherub at the other end: of one piece with the mercy-seat shall ye make the cherubim on the two ends thereof. 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 the cherubim shall spread out their wings on high, covering the mercy-seat with their wings, with their faces one to another; toward the mercy-seat shall the faces of the cherubim be. 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.
21 And thou shalt put the mercy-seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee. 21 Place the cover on top of the ark and put in the ark the Testimony, which I will give you.
22 And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy-seat, from between the two cherubim which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel. 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.
