And let them make me a sanctuary, that I may dwell in their midst.
According to all that I show you concerning the pattern of the tabernacle, and of all its furniture, so you shall make it.
"They shall make an ark of acacia wood; two cubits and a half shall be its length, a cubit and a half its breadth, and a cubit and a half its height.
And you shall overlay it with pure gold, within and without shall you overlay it, and you shall make upon it a molding of gold round about.
And you shall cast four rings of gold for it and put them on its four feet, two rings on the one side of it, and two rings on the other side of it.
You shall make poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with gold.
And you shall put the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark, to carry the ark by them.
