New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
31 "Make a lampstand of pure, hammered gold. The entire lampstand and its decorations will be one piece -- the base, center stem, lamp cups, buds, and blossoms. 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 It will have six branches, three branches going out from each side of the center stem. 32 Six branches are to extend from the sides of the lampstand--three on one side and three on the other.
33 Each of the six branches will hold a cup shaped like an almond blossom, complete with buds and petals. 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 The center stem of the lampstand will be decorated with four almond blossoms, complete with buds and petals. 34 And on the lampstand there are to be four cups shaped like almond flowers with buds and blossoms.
35 One blossom will be set beneath each pair of branches where they extend from the center stem. 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 decorations and branches must all be one piece with the stem, and they must be hammered from pure gold. 36 The buds and branches shall all be of one piece with the lampstand, hammered out of pure gold.
37 Then make the seven lamps for the lampstand, and set them so they reflect their light forward. 37 "Then make its seven lamps and set them up on it so that they light the space in front of it.
38 The lamp snuffers and trays must also be made of pure gold. 38 Its wick trimmers and trays are to be of pure gold.
39 You will need seventy-five pounds of pure gold for the lampstand and its accessories." 39 A talent of pure gold is to be used for the lampstand and all these accessories.
40 "Be sure that you make everything according to the pattern I have shown you here on the mountain." 40 See that you make them according to the pattern shown you on the mountain.
