The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
31 "Make a Lampstand of pure hammered gold. Make its stem and branches, cups, calyxes, and petals all of one piece. 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 Give it six branches, three from one side and three from the other; 32 Six branches are to extend from the sides of the lampstand--three on one side and three on the other.
33 put three cups shaped like almond blossoms, each with calyx and petals, on one branch, three on the next, and so on - the same for all six branches. 33 Three cups shaped like almond flowers with buds and blossoms are to be on one branch, three on the next branch, and the same for all six branches extending from the lampstand.
34 On the main stem of the Lampstand, make four cups shaped like almonds, with calyx and petals, 34 And on the lampstand there are to be four cups shaped like almond flowers with buds and blossoms.
35 a calyx extending from under each pair of the six branches, 35 One bud shall be 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.
36 the entire Lampstand fashioned from one piece of hammered pure gold. 36 The buds and branches shall all be of one piece with the lampstand, hammered out of pure gold.
37 "Make seven of these lamps for the Table. Arrange the lamps so they throw their light out in front. 37 "Then make its seven lamps and set them up on it so that they light the space in front of it.
38 Make the candle snuffers and trays out of pure gold. 38 Its wick trimmers and trays are to be of pure gold.
39 "Use a seventy-five-pound brick of pure gold to make the Lampstand and its accessories. 39 A talent of pure gold is to be used for the lampstand and all these accessories.
40 Study the design you were given on the mountain and make everything accordingly. 40 See that you make them according to the pattern shown you on the mountain.
