Exodus 25:10-22

Instructions for building the chest containing the covenant

10 Have them make an acacia-wood chest. It should be forty-five inches long, twenty-seven inches wide, and twenty-seven inches high.
11 Cover it with pure gold, inside and out, and make a gold molding all around it.
12 Cast four gold rings for it and put them on its four feet, two rings on one side and two rings on the other.
13 Make acacia-wood poles and cover them with gold.
14 Then put the poles into the rings on the chest's sides and use them to carry the chest.
15 The poles should stay in the chest's rings. They shouldn't be taken out of them.
16 Put the covenant document that I will give you into the chest.
17 Then make a cover of pure gold, forty-five inches long and twenty-seven inches wide.
18 Make two winged heavenly creatures of hammered gold, one for each end of the cover.
19 Put one winged heavenly creature at one end and one winged heavenly creature at the other. Place the winged heavenly creatures at the cover's two ends.
20 The heavenly creatures should have their wings spread out above, shielding the cover with their wings. The winged heavenly creatures should face each other toward the cover's center.
21 Put the gold cover on top of the chest and put the covenant document that I will give you inside the chest.
22 There I will meet with you. From there above the cover, from between the two winged heavenly creatures that are on top of the chest containing the covenant, I will deliver to you all that I command you concerning the Israelites.
