1Bezalel made the ark of acacia wood. Two cubits and a half was its length, a cubit and a half its breadth, and a cubit and a half its height.
And he overlaid it with pure gold inside and outside, and made a molding of gold around it.
And he cast for it four rings of gold for its 2four feet, two rings on its one side and two rings on its other side.
And he made poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold
and put the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark to carry the ark.
And he made a mercy seat of pure gold. Two cubits and a half was its length, and a cubit and a half its breadth.
And he made two cherubim of gold. He made them of hammered work on the two ends of the mercy seat,
one cherub on the one end, and one cherub on the other end. Of one piece with the mercy seat he made the cherubim on its two ends.
The cherubim spread out their wings above, overshadowing the mercy seat with their wings, with their faces one to another; toward the mercy seat were the faces of the cherubim.
