Exodus 37:1-9

Making the Ark

1 1Bezalel made the ark of acacia wood. Two cubitsa and a half was its length, a cubit and a half its breadth, and a cubit and a half its height.
2 And he overlaid it with pure gold inside and outside, and made a molding of gold around it.
3 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.
4 And he made poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold
5 and put the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark to carry the ark.
6 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.
7 And he made two cherubim of gold. He made them of hammered work on the two ends of the mercy seat,
8 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.
9 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.
