And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,
`Speak unto the sons of Israel, and they take for Me a heave-offering; from every man whose heart impelleth him ye do take My heave-offering.
`And this [is] the heave-offering which ye take from them; gold, and silver, and brass,
and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and linen, and goats' [hair],
and rams' skins made red, and badgers' skins, and shittim wood,
oil for the light, spices for the anointing oil, and for the perfume of the spices,
shoham stones, and stones for setting for an ephod, and for a breastplate.
`And they have made for Me a sanctuary, and I have tabernacled in their midst;
according to all that which I am shewing thee, the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all its vessels, even so ye do make [it].
`And they have made an ark of shittim wood; two cubits and a half its length, and a cubit and a half its breadth, and a cubit and a half its height;
and thou hast overlaid it [with] pure gold, within and without thou dost overlay it, and thou hast made on it a ring of gold round about.
`And thou hast cast for it four rings of gold, and hast put [them] on its four feet, even two rings on its one side, and two rings on its second side;
and thou hast made staves of shittim wood, and hast overlaid them [with] gold,
and hast brought the staves into the rings on the sides of the ark, to bear the ark by them,
in the rings of the ark are the staves, they are not turned aside from it;
and thou hast put unto the ark the testimony which I give unto thee.
`And thou hast made a mercy-seat of pure gold, two cubits and a half its length, and a cubit and a half its breadth;
and thou hast made two cherubs of gold, beaten work dost thou make them, at the two ends of the mercy-seat;
and make thou one cherub at the end on this side, and one cherub at the end on that; at the mercy-seat ye do make the cherubs on its two ends.
`And the cherubs have been spreading out wings on high, covering the mercy-seat over with their wings, and their faces [are] one towards another -- towards the mercy-seat are the faces of the cherubs.
`And thou hast put the mercy-seat on the ark above, and unto the ark thou dost put the testimony which I give unto thee;
and I have met with thee there, and have spoken with thee from off the mercy-seat (from between the two cherubs, which [are] on the ark of the testimony) all that which I command thee concerning the sons of Israel.
`And thou hast made a table of shittim wood, two cubits its length, and a cubit its breadth, and a cubit and a half its height,
and hast overlaid it [with] pure gold, and hast made for it a crown of gold round about,
and hast made for it a border of a handbreadth round about, and hast made a crown of gold to its border round about.
`And thou hast made to it four rings of gold, and hast put the rings on the four corners, which [are] to its four feet;
over-against the border are the rings for places for staves to bear the table;
and thou hast made the staves of shittim wood, and hast overlaid them with gold, and the table hath been borne with them;
and thou hast made its dishes, and its bowls, and its covers, and its cups, with which they pour out; of pure gold thou dost make them;
and thou hast put on the table bread of the presence before Me continually.
`And thou hast made a candlestick of pure gold, of beaten work is the candlestick made; its base, and its branch, its calyxes, its knops, and its flowers are of the same;
and six branches are coming out of its sides, three branches of the candlestick out of the one side, and three branches of the candlestick out of the second side;
three calyxes made like almonds in the one branch, a knop and a flower, and three calyxes made like almonds in one branch, a knop and a flower; so for the six branches which are coming out from the candlestick.
`And in the candlestick [are] four calyxes made like almonds, its knops and its flowers;
and a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same, [are] to the six branches which are coming out of the candlestick;
their knops and their branches are of the same, all of it one beaten work of pure gold;
and thou hast made its seven lamps, and [one] hath caused its lights to go up, and it hath given light over-against its front.
`And its snuffers and its snuff dishes [are] of pure gold;
of a talent of pure gold he doth make it, with all these vessels.
And see thou and do [them] by their pattern which thou art shewn in the mount.
`And thou dost make the tabernacle: ten curtains of twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet; [with] cherubs, work of a designer, thou dost make them;
the length of the one curtain [is] eight and twenty by the cubit, and the breadth of the one curtain four by the cubit, one measure [is] to all the curtains;
five of the curtains are joining one unto another, and five curtains are joining one to another.
`And thou hast made loops of blue upon the edge of the one curtain, at the end in the joining; and so thou makest in the edge of the outermost curtain, in the joining of the second.
fifty loops thou dost make in the one curtain, and fifty loops thou dost make in the edge of the curtain which [is] in the joining of the second, causing the loops to take hold one unto another;
and thou hast made fifty hooks of gold, and hast joined the curtains one to another by the hooks, and the tabernacle hath been one.
`And thou hast made curtains of goats' [hair], for a tent over the tabernacle; thou dost make eleven curtains:
the length of the one curtain [is] thirty by the cubit, and the breadth of the one curtain four by the cubit; one measure [is] to the eleven curtains;
and thou hast joined the five curtains apart, and the six curtains apart, and hast doubled the six curtains over-against the front of the tent.
`And thou hast made fifty loops on the edge of the one curtain, the outermost in the joining, and fifty loops on the edge of the curtain which is joining the second;
and thou hast made fifty hooks of brass, and hast brought in the hooks into the loops, and hast joined the tent, and it hath been one.
`And the superfluity in the curtains of the tent -- the half of the curtain which is superfluous -- hath spread over the hinder part of the tabernacle;
and the cubit on this side, and the cubit on that, in the superfluity in the length of the curtains of the tent, is spread out over the sides of the tabernacle, on this and on that, to cover it;
and thou hast made a covering for the tent, of rams' skins made red, and a covering of badgers' skins above.
`And thou hast made the boards for the tabernacle, of shittim wood, standing up;
ten cubits [is] the length of the board, and a cubit and a half the breadth of the one board;
two handles [are] to the one board, joined one unto another; so thou dost make for all the boards of the tabernacle;
and thou hast made the boards of the tabernacle: twenty boards for the south side southward;
and forty sockets of silver thou dost make under the twenty boards, two sockets under the one board for its two handles, and two sockets under the other board for its two handles.
`And for the second side of the tabernacle, for the north side, [are] twenty boards,
and their forty sockets of silver, two sockets under the one board, and two sockets under another board.
And for the sides of the tabernacle westward, thou dost make six boards.
And two boards thou dost make for the corners of the tabernacle in the two sides.
And they are pairs beneath, and together they are pairs above its head unto the one ring; so is it for them both, they are for the two corners.
And they have been eight boards, and their sockets of silver [are] sixteen sockets, two sockets under the one board, and two sockets under another board.
`And thou hast made bars of shittim wood: five for the boards of the one side of the tabernacle,
and five bars for the boards of the second side of the tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the side of the tabernacle at the two sides, westward;
and one hath caused the middle bar in the midst of the boards to reach from end unto end;
and the boards thou dost overlay [with] gold, and their rings thou dost make of gold places for bars, and hast overlaid their bars with gold;
and thou hast raised up the tabernacle according to its fashion which thou hast been shewn in the mount.
`And thou hast made a vail of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and twined linen, work of a designer; he maketh it [with] cherubs;
and thou hast put it on four pillars of shittim wood, overlaid [with] gold, their pegs [are] of gold, on four sockets of silver.
`And thou hast put the vail under the hooks, and hast brought in thither within the vail the ark of the testimony; and the vail hath made a separation for you between the holy and the holy of holies.
`And thou hast put the mercy-seat on the ark of the testimony, in the holy of holies.
`And thou hast set the table at the outside of the vail, and the candlestick over-against the table on the side of the tabernacle southward, and the table thou dost put on the north side.
`And thou hast made a covering for the opening of the tent, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and twined linen, work of an embroiderer;
and thou hast made for the covering five pillars of shittim [wood], and hast overlaid them [with] gold, their pegs [are] of gold, and thou hast cast for them five sockets of brass.
And Jesus going up to Jerusalem, took the twelve disciples by themselves in the way, and said to them,
`Lo, we go up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man shall be delivered to the chief priests and scribes,
and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the nations to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify, and the third day he will rise again.'
Then came near to him the mother of the sons of Zebedee, with her sons, bowing and asking something from him,
and he said to her, `What wilt thou?' She saith to him, `Say, that they may sit -- these my two sons -- one on thy right hand, and one on the left, in thy reign.'
And Jesus answering said, `Ye have not known what ye ask for yourselves; are ye able to drink of the cup that I am about to drink? and with the baptism that I am baptized with, to be baptized?' They say to him, `We are able.'
And he saith to them, `Of my cup indeed ye shall drink, and with the baptism that I am baptized with ye shall be baptized; but to sit on my right hand and on my left is not mine to give, but -- to those for whom it hath been prepared by my father.'
And the ten having heard, were much displeased with the two brothers,
and Jesus having called them near, said, `Ye have known that the rulers of the nations do exercise lordship over them, and those great do exercise authority over them,
but not so shall it be among you, but whoever may will among you to become great, let him be your ministrant;
and whoever may will among you to be first, let him be your servant;
even as the Son of Man did not come to be ministered to, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.'
And they going forth from Jericho, there followed him a great multitude,
and lo, two blind men sitting by the way, having heard that Jesus doth pass by, cried, saying, `Deal kindly with us, sir -- Son of David.'
And the multitude charged them that they might be silent, and they cried out the more, saying, `Deal kindly with us sir -- Son of David.'
And having stood, Jesus called them, and said, `What will ye [that] I may do to you?'
they say to him, `Sir, that our eyes may be opened;'
and having been moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes, and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.
