Exodus 25; Exodus 26; Matthew 20:17-34

1 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 2 Speak to the children of Israel, that they bring firstfruits to me: of every man that offereth of his own accord, you shall take them. 3 And these are the things you must take: Gold, and silver, and brass, 4 Violet and purple, and scarlet twice dyed, and fine linen, and goats’ hair, 5 And rams’ skins dyed red, and violet skins, and setim wood: 6 Oil to make lights: spices for ointment, and for sweetsmelling incense: 7 Onyx stones, and precious stones to adorn the ephod and the rational. 8 And they shall make me a sanctuary, and I will dwell in the midst of them: 9 According to all the likeness of the tabernacle which I will shew thee, and of all the vessels for the service thereof: and thus you shall make it: 10 Frame an ark of setim wood, the length whereof shall be of two cubits and a half; the breadth, a cubit and a half; the height, likewise, a cubit and a half. 11 And thou shalt overlay it with the purest gold, within and without; and over it thou shalt make a golden crown round about: 12 And four golden rings, which thou shalt put at the four corners of the ark: let two rings be on the one side, and two on the other. 13 Thou shalt make bars also of setim wood, and shalt overlay them with gold. 14 And thou shalt put them in through the rings that are in the sides of the ark, that it may be carried on them: 15 And they shall be always in the rings, neither shall they at any time be drawn out of them. 16 And thou shalt put in the ark the testimony which I will give thee. 17 Thou shalt make also a propitiatory of the purest gold: the length thereof shall be two cubits and a half, and the breadth a cubit and a half. 18 Thou shalt make also two cherubims of beaten gold, on the two sides of the oracle. 19 Let one cherub be on the one side, and the other on the other. 20 Let them cover both sides of the propitiatory, spreading their wings, and covering the oracle, and let them look one towards the other, their faces being turned towards the propitiatory wherewith the ark is to be covered. 21 In which thou shalt put the testimony that I will give thee. 22 Thence will I give orders, and will speak to thee over the propitiatory, and from the midst of the two cherubims, which shall be upon the ark of the testimony, all things which I will command the children of Israel by thee. 23 Thou shalt make a table also of setim wood, of two cubits in length, and a cubit in breadth, and a cubit and a half in height. 24 And thou shalt overlay it with the purest gold: and thou shalt make to it a golden ledge round about. 25 And to the ledge itself a polished crown, four inches high; and over the same another little golden crown. 26 Thou shalt prepare also four golden rings, and shalt put them in the four corners of the same table, over each foot. 27 Under the crown shall the golden rings be, that the bars may be put through them, and the table may be carried. 28 The bars also themselves thou shalt make of setim wood, and shalt overlay them with gold, to bear up the table. 29 Thou shalt prepare also dishes, and bowls, censers, and cups, wherein the libations are to be offered, of the purest gold. 30 And thou shalt set upon the table loaves of proposition in my sight always. 31 Thou shalt make also a candlestick of beaten work, of the finest gold, the shaft thereof, and the branches, the cups, and the bowls, and the lilies going forth from it. 32 Six branches shall come out of the sides, three out of one side, and three out of the other. 33 Three cups as it were nuts to every branch, and a bowl withal, and a lily: and three cups likewise of the fashion of nuts in the other branch, and a bowl withal, and a lily. Such shall be the work of the six branches, that are to come out from the shaft: 34 And in the candlestick itself shall be four cups in the manner of a nut, and at every one bowls and lilies. 35 Bowls under two branches in three places, which together make six, coming forth out of one shaft. 36 And both the bowls and the branches shall be of the same beaten work of the purest gold. 37 Thou shalt make also seven lamps, and shalt set them upon the candlestick, to give light over against. 38 The snuffers also, and where the snuffings shall be put out, shall be made of the purest gold. 39 The whole weight of the candlestick, with all the furniture thereof, shall be a talent of the purest gold. 40 Look, and make it according to the pattern that was shewn thee in the mount.
1 And thou shalt make the tabernacle in this manner: Thou shalt make ten curtains of fine twisted linen, and violet and purple, and scarlet twice dyed, diversified with embroidery. 2 The length of one curtain shall be twenty-eight cubits; the breadth shall be four cubits. All the curtains shall be of one measure. 3 Five curtains shall be joined one to another, and the other five shall be coupled together in like manner. 4 Thou shalt make loops of violet in the sides and tops of the curtains, that they may be joined one to another. 5 Every curtain shall have fifty loops on both sides, so set on, that one loop may be against another loop, and one may be fitted to the other. 6 Thou shalt make also fifty rings of gold, wherewith the veils of the curtains are to be joined, that it may be made one tabernacle. 7 Thou shalt make also eleven curtains of goats’ hair, to cover the top of the tabernacle. 8 The length of one hair-curtain shall be thirty cubits; and the breadth, four: the measure of all the curtains shall be equal. 9 Five of which thou shalt couple by themselves, and the six others thou shalt couple one to another, so as to double the sixth curtain in the front of the roof. 10 Thou shalt make also fifty loops in the edge of one curtain, that it may be joined with the other: and fifty loops in the edge of the other curtain, that it may be coupled with its fellow. 11 Thou shalt make also fifty buckles of brass, wherewith the loops may be joined, that of all there may be made one covering. 12 And that which shall remain of the curtains, that are prepared for the roof, to wit, one curtain that is over and above, with the half thereof thou shalt cover the back parts of the tabernacle. 13 And there shall hang down a cubit on the one side, and another on the other side, which is over and above in the length of the curtains, fencing both sides of the tabernacle. 14 Thou shalt make also another cover to the roof of rams’ skins dyed red: and over that again another cover of violet coloured skins. 15 Thou shalt make also the boards of the tabernacle standing upright of setim wood. 16 Let every one of them be ten cubits in length, and in breadth one cubit and a half. 17 In the sides of the boards shall be made two mortises, whereby one board may be joined to another board: and after this manner shall all the boards be prepared. 18 Of which twenty shall be in the south side southward. 19 For which thou shalt cast forty sockets of silver, that under every board may be put two sockets at the two corners. 20 In the second side also of the tabernacle that looketh to the north, there shall be twenty boards, 21 Having forty sockets of silver, two sockets shall be put under each board. 22 But on the west side of the tabernacle thou shalt make six boards. 23 And again other two which shall be erected in the corners at the back of the tabernacle. 24 And they shall be joined together from beneath unto the top, and one joint shall hold them all. The like joining shall be observed for the two boards also that are to be put in the corners. 25 And they shall be in all eight boards, and their silver sockets sixteen, reckoning two sockets for each board. 26 Thou shalt make also five bars of setim wood, to hold together the boards on one side of the tabernacle. 27 And five others on the other side, and as many at the west side: 28 And they shall be put along by the midst of the boards, from one end to the other. 29 The boards also themselves thou shalt overlay with gold, and shalt cast rings of gold to be set upon them, for places for the bars to hold together the boardwork: which bars thou shalt cover with plates of gold. 30 And thou shalt rear up the tabernacle according to the pattern that was shewn thee in the mount. 31 Thou shalt make also a veil of violet, and purple, and scarlet twice dyed, and fine twisted linen, wrought with embroidered work and goodly variety: 32 And thou shalt hang it up before four pillars of setim wood, which themselves also shall be overlaid with gold, and shall have heads of gold, but sockets of silver. 33 And the veil shall be hanged on with rings, and within it thou shalt put the ark of the testimony, and the sanctuary and the holy of the holies shall be divided with it. 34 And thou shalt set the propitiatory upon the ark of the testimony, in the holy of holies. 35 And the table without the veil, and over against the table the candlestick in the south side of the tabernacle: for the table shall stand in the north side. 36 Thou shalt make also a hanging in the entrance of the tabernacle of violet, and purple, and scarlet twice dyed, and fine twisted linen with embroidered work. 37 And thou shalt overlay with gold five pillars of setim wood, before which the hanging shall be drawn: their heads shall be of gold, and the sockets of brass.
17 And Jesus going up to Jerusalem, took the twelve disciples apart and said to them: 18 Behold we go up to Jerusalem, and the Son of man shall be betrayed to the chief priests and the scribes: and they shall condemn him to death. 19 And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to be mocked and scourged and crucified: and the third day he shall rise again. 20 Then came to him the mother of the sons of Zebedee with her sons, adoring and asking something of him. 21 Who said to her: What wilt thou? She saith to him: say that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left, in thy kingdom. 22 And Jesus answering, said: You know not what you ask. Can you drink the chalice that I shall drink? They say to him: We can. 23 He saith to them: My chalice indeed you shall drink; but to sit on my right or left hand is not mine to give to you, but to them for whom it is prepared by my Father. 24 And the ten, hearing it, were moved with indignation against the two brethren. 25 But Jesus called them to him and said: You know that the princes of the Gentiles lord it over them; and that they that are the greater, exercise power upon them. 26 It shall not be so among you: but whosoever is the greater among you, let him be your minister. 27 And he that will be first among you shall be your servant. 28 Even as the Son of man is not come to be ministered unto, but to minister and to give his life a redemption for many. 29 And when they went out from Jericho, a great multitude followed him. 30 And behold two blind men sitting by the way side heard that Jesus passed by. And they cried out, saying: O Lord, thou son of David, have mercy on us. 31 And the multitude rebuked them that they should hold their peace. But they cried out the more, saying: O Lord, thou son of David, have mercy on us. 32 And Jesus stood and called them and said: What will ye that I do to you? 33 They say to him: Lord, that our eyes be opened. 34 And Jesus having compassion on them, touched their eyes. And immediately they saw and followed him.
