Exodus (Going Out)
26[1-6] Make the tent with ten curtains of fine linen, of blue, of purple, and of scarlet, with angelic beings skillfully sewn on them.Each curtain will be about forty-two feet long, and six feet wide, all the same size.Five curtains will be hooked together; and the other five curtains will be hooked together.Make loops of blue cord on the edge of one set of curtains where they come together; and in the same way make them on the second set on the edge of the curtain that is on the outside. Make fifty loops in one curtain, and fifty loops in the edge of the curtain that is on the second set. The loops will be opposite one to another.Then make fifty hooks of gold, and join the curtains to each other with the hooks: and it will all be one tent.
[7-13]Make eleven curtains of goats` hair for a covering over the tent.Each curtain will be about forty-five feet long, and six feet wide, all of the same size.Join five curtains in one set, and six curtains in the other, and double over the sixth curtain in the front of the tent.Make fifty loops on the edge of the curtain that is on the outside edge of the first set, and fifty loops on the outside edge of the curtain in the second set.Make fifty hooks of brass, and put the hooks into the loops, and join it all together to make one tent.The overhanging part that is left of the curtains of the tent, the half curtain that is left, will hang over the back of the tent.The 18” on each side of that which is left in the length of the curtains will hang over the sides of the tent on each side, to cover it.
[14-21] Make another covering for the tent of red sheepskin, and then another covering of leather to go above that.Make the boards for the tent of acacia wood, to stand it up.The boards will be about fifteen feet long, and twenty seven inches wide.There will be two supports in each board to join them together: do this on all the boards of the tent.Make twenty boards for the south side of the tent.Make forty silver holders under the twenty boards; two holders under the two supports of each board.Make twenty boards for the second side of the tent, on the north side and their forty silver holders; two holders under each board.
[22-25] Make six boards for the back side of the tent on the west, two boards for each corner of the tent.They’ll be joined together on the bottom, and in the same way at the top into one ring to make the two corners.There will be eight boards, and their silver holders, sixteen holders in all; two holders under each board.
[26-30] Make bars of acacia wood: five for the boards of each side of the tent, and five bars for the boards of the back side of the tent, on the west.The middle bar in the middle of the boards will pass through the rings from end to end.Cover the boards and the bars with gold, and make the gold rings to hold the bars.Then set up the tent how you saw it on the mountain.
[31-37] Make a veil of blue, purple, and scarlet, of fine linen, skillfully sewn with angelic beings. Hang it on four pillars of acacia overlaid with gold; their hooks will be of gold, on four silver holders.Hang up the veil under the hooks, and put the Box of the Law in there behind the veil: and the veil will separate the holy place from the most holy place for you.Then put the Seat of Forgiveness on the Box of the Law in the most holy place.Set the table outside the veil on the north side of the tent, and the lamp stand across from the table on the south side of the tent.Make a screen for the door of the tent, skillfully woven of blue, purple, and scarlet, of fine linen.Make five pillars of acacia wood overlaid with gold for the screen, with hooks of gold: and cast five holders of brass for them.
27[1-8] Make a square altar of acacia wood, seven and a half feet long, and seven and a half feet wide, and four and a half feet high.Make horns on its four corners joined to it; and cover it all with brass.Make pots of brass to take away the ashes, and shovels, pans, meat hooks, and fire pans, all made of brass.Make a grill for it out of a grid of brass with four brazen rings in the corners.Put it under the ledge around the altar underneath, so that the grill is halfway up the altar.Make poles for the altar, poles of acacia wood, and cover them with brass.The poles will be put into the rings, and the poles will be on two sides of the altar to carry it.Make it hollow, boarded up with planks, as you saw it on the mountain.
[9-13] Make the court of the tent with hangings on the south side of fine linen, one hundred and fifty feet long, for each side, with twenty pillars, and twenty brass holders; Make silver hooks and bands for the pillars.Do the same for the north side, making the hangings one hundred and fifty feet long, with twenty pillars and twenty brass holders, and silver hooks and bands.On the west side the hangings will be seventy-five feet wide with ten pillars, and ten holders. The court on the east side will also be seventy-five feet wide.
[14-16] The hangings for each side of the gate will be twenty-two and a half feet with 3 pillars and 3 holders.For the gate of the court will be a screen of thirty feet, of blue, purple, and scarlet fine linen, skillfully sewn; with four pillars, and four holders.
[17-] All the pillars around the court will be banded with silver with silver hooks, and brass holders.So the court will be one hundred and fifty feet long, and seventy-five feet wide, and seven and a half feet high, of fine linen, with holders of brass.All the work tools of the tent, and all the nails, and all the nails of the court, will be of brass.
[20-21] Tellthe people of Israel to bring pure beaten olive oil for the light, so the lamp will burn always.Aaron and his sons will keep it in order from evening to morning facing Yahweh in the Meeting Place, outside the veil which is in front of the Box of the Law, and this will be a rule forever throughout the generations for the people of Israel.
28[1-8] Bring Aaron your brother, and his sons, to you from among the people of Israel, that they may be My priests. Bring Aaron, and Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, his sons.Make religious clothes for Aaron your brother, for beauty and honor.Speak to those who are wise, whom I have given the spirit of wisdom, that they make Aaron’s clothes to set him apart to minister to Me as My priest.Make a chest piece, and a back piece, a robe, a colorful coat of fine needlework, a hat, and a linen belt. Make these holy clothes for Aaron your brother, and his sons, that they may minister to Me as My priests.Take the gold, blue, purple, and scarlet, of the fine linen.Make the back piece of gold, blue, purple, and scarlet, of fine linen, skillfully woven.It will have two shoulder-pieces joined to the two ends, to join it together.The skillfully woven band, which is on it, will be made like it of the same kind of gold, blue, purple, and scarlet, fine linen.
[9-12] Then take two onyx stones, and engrave the names of the families of Israel on them with six of their names on one stone, and the other six on the other stone, in the order of their birth.Let the engraver carve them in the two stones, like the work on an engraved seal, with the names of the families of Israel. Then set them in settings of gold.Put the two stones on the shoulder-pieces of the back piece, as reminders of the people of Israel: and Aaron will carry their names facing Yahweh on his two shoulders as a reminder.
[13-14] Make settings of gold, and two chains of pure gold like cords of braided work and put the braided chains on the settings.
[15-21] Makea chest piece pocket to keep the judgment stones in, skillfully woven; like the work of the back piece. Make it of gold, blue, purple, and scarlet, fine linen.It will be square and folded double; It will be about nine inches long, and nine inches wide.Set in it stone settings of gold for four rows of stones with the first row having a ruby, topaz, and beryl;and the second row having a turquoise, a sapphire, and an emerald;and the third row having a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst;and the fourth row having a chrysolite, an onyx, and a jasper.The stones will be according to the names of the families of Israel, by their twelve names; like the carvings of a engraved seal, one for each name of the twelve families.
[22-28] Make on the chest piece chains of pure gold braided like cords.Make on the chest piece two gold rings, and put the two rings on the two ends of the chest piece.Put the two braided chains of gold in the two rings at the ends of the chest piece.The other two ends of the two braided chains you’ll put on the two settings, and put them on the shoulder-pieces of the back piece in the front part of it.Make two gold rings, and put them on the inside of the lower edge of the two ends of the chest piece, which faces the side of the back piece.Make two more gold rings, and put them on the two shoulder-pieces of the back piece underneath, in the front part of it, close where it joins, above the band of the back piece.They’ll tie the chest piece by its rings to the rings of the back piece with a lace of blue, to join it to the band of the back piece, and so that the chest piece may not swing out from the back piece.
[29-] So Aaron will keep the names of the families of Israel in the chest piece, which holds the judgment stones, on his heart when he goes in to the holy place, for a reminder to Yahweh always.Put in the chest piece of judgment the Urim and the Thummim, which are the judgment stones; and they’ll be on Aaron’s heart, when he goes in facing Yahweh: and Aaron will have the power to judge the families of Israel on his heart facing Yahweh always.
[31-35] Make the robe of the back piece blue.It will have a hole for the head in the middle of it, having a binding of woven work around the hole, like on a soldier’s coat of mail, so that it won’t be torn.On its hem make fruits of blue, purple, and scarlet, around its hem with gold bells between them:a pattern of gold bells and fruits all around the robe’s hem.It will be on Aaron to minister: and I’ll hear it’s sound when he comes in to the holy place facing Yahweh, and when he goes out, so that he won’t die.
[36-38] Make a plate of pure gold, and carve on it, like the carvings of an engraved seal, `HOLY TO YAHWEH.`Put it on a lace of blue, and it will stay on the front of the hat on Aaron’s forehead, and Aaron will carry the guilt of sin of all the holy offerings of the people of Israel, so that they may be accepted by Yahweh.
[39-43] Weave the coat and the hat in fine linen, and make a finely woven belt with the best needlework.Make coats, belts, and headbands for Aaron’s sons, too, for beauty and honor.Put them on Aaron your brother, and on his sons, and anoint them with oil, setting them apart, and dedicating them to minister to Me as My priests.Make them linen underwear to cover them from the hips to the thighs. Aaron and his sons will wear them when they go in to the Meeting Place or when they come to the altar to minister in the holy place, so that they don’t sin, and die. This will be a rule to him and his descendants forever.
29[1-9] This is what you’ll do to them to set them apart to minister to Me as My priests: take one young bull and two rams that have nothing wrong with them,some bread made without yeast, some cakes made without yeast mixed with oil, and some wafers made without yeast anointed with oil, all made with fine wheat flour.Put them into a basket, and bring them in the basket, with the bull and the two rams.Then bring Aaron and his sons to the door of the Meeting Place, and have them wash themselves with water.Take the clothes, and put on Aaron the coat, the robe of the back piece, the back piece, and the chest piece, and dress him with the skillfully woven band of the back piece and set the hat on his head, and put the holy crown on the hat.Then take the anointing oil, and pour it on his head, and anoint him.Bring his sons, and put coats on them and dress them with their belts, and put their hats on them. They’ll serve as priests forever by My law, so set apart Aaron and his sons.
[10-14]Then bring the bull before the Meeting Place: and Aaron and his sons will lay their hands on the head of the bull.Kill the bull facing Yahweh, at the door of the Meeting Place.Take some of the blood of the bull, and put it on the horns of the altar with your finger; and pour out all the rest of the blood at the base of the altar.Take all the fat that covers the insides, the fat that covers the liver and the two kidneys, and all the fat that is around them, and burn it all on the altar.But the meat of the bull, and its skin, and its wastes, you’ll burn with fire outside of the camp because it’s a sin-offering.
[15-21]Also take one ram; and Aaron and his sons will lay their hands on the head of this ram.Then kill the ram, and take its blood, and sprinkle it around the altar.Cut the ram into pieces, and wash its insides, and its legs, and put them with the other pieces, and with its head.Burn the whole ram on the altar because it’s a burnt offering to Yahweh; an offering of fire that smells good to Yahweh.Then take the other ram; and Aaron and his sons will lay their hands on the head of this ram.Then kill it, and take some of its blood, and put it on the tip of the right ear of Aaron, and on the tip of the right ear of his sons, and on the thumb of their right hand, and on the big toe of their right foot, and sprinkle the blood on the altar all around it.Take some of the blood that is on the altar, and some of the anointing oil, and sprinkle it on Aaron, and on his clothes, and on his sons, and on the clothes of his sons with him: and they’ll be set apart for service, along with the clothes, and his sons, and his sons` clothes.
[22-28] Also take some of the ram’s fat, the fat tail, the fat that covers the insides, the fat that covers the liver, the two kidneys, and all the fat around them, and the right thigh because it’s a ram of dedication,Also take one loaf of bread, one cake of oiled bread, and one wafer out of the basket of bread without yeast that is facing Yahweh.Put all of this in Aaron’s hands, and in his sons` hands, and wave them for a wave-offering facing Yahweh.Then take them from their hands, and burn them on the altar on the burnt offering, for an offering of fire that smells good to Yahweh. Take the breast of Aaron’s ram of dedication, and wave it for a wave-offering facing Yahweh: and it will be your part.Dedicate the breast that is waved, and the thigh that is raised up, of the ram of dedication, which is part of that which is for Aaron, and his sons:and Aaron and his sons will have this part forever by right from the people of Israel; for it’s an offering which is raised up from the people of Israel of the sacrifices of their peace-offerings, even their offering which is raised up to Yahweh.
[29-37] The holy clothes of Aaron will be for his descendants after him, to be anointed in them, and to be set apart in them.Those who are priests in Aaron’s place will put them on for seven days when they come into the Meeting Place to minister in the holy place.Then take the ram of dedication, and boil its meat in a holy place.Aaron and his sons will eat the meat of the ram, and the bread that is in the basket, at the door of the Meeting Place.They’ll eat those things which were to cover your sin, to set apart and dedicate them, but no one else will eat it, because they’re holy.If any of the meat of the dedication, or of the bread, is left over the next morning, then burn what’s left with fire. It won’t be eaten, because it’s holy.So do this to Aaron, and to his sons, according to all that I have told you. Set them apart for seven days.Every day you’ll offer the bull of sin-offering to cover your sin: and you’ll cleanse the altar, when you make your offering, and anoint it again, to dedicate it.For seven days make your offering on the altar to cover your sin, and dedicate it. Then the altar will be most holy and whatever touches it will also be holy.
[38-] Now you’ll offer two one year old lambs on the altar each day.The first lamb you’ll offer in the morning and the other you’ll offer at evening, along with 3 quarts of fine flour mixed with 4 quarts of beaten oil, and 4 quarts of wine for a drink-offering.The other lamb that you’ll offer at evening will be offered like that of the morning offering, an offering of fire, an offering that smells good to Yahweh.It will be a constant burnt offering forever at the door of the Meeting Place facing Yahweh, where I’ll meet you and speak to you.There I’ll meet with the people of Israel; and the place will be set apart because I Am there.I’ll dedicate the Meeting Place and the altar, and Aaron and his sons I’ll also dedicate to minister to Me as My priests.I’ll be with the people of Israel, and will be their God.They’ll know that I Am Yahweh their God, who brought them out of the land of Egypt that I might be with them. I Am Yahweh their God.
30[1-10]Make an altar to burn incense on. Make it of acacia wood.It will be 18” wide and long. It will be square, and it will be 3 feet high. Its horns will be joined to it.Coverit with pure gold, the top, the sides all around it, and its horns; and make a gold molding around it.Make two golden rings for it under the molding on two sides, which will be for places to put the poles to carry it.Make the poles of acacia wood, and cover them with gold.Put it in front of the veil that is by the Box of the Law, in front of the Seat of Forgiveness that is over the law, where I’ll meet with you.Aaron will burn incense of sweet spices on it every morning. When he tends the lamps, he’ll burn it.When the priest lights the lamps at evening, the incense will be burnt for Yahweh forever.Offer no other incense on it, nor any other offering on it.Aaron will make an offering to cover your sins with the blood of the sin offering on its horns once a year and it will be done forever. It’s most holy to Yahweh.”
[11-16] Then Yahweh said to Moses,”When you count the people of Israel, let those who are counted among them, pay a price for their life to Yahweh, so that there will be no problem among them when you count them.Everyone who is counted will give a half dollar from the dollar of the place of worship, which is valued at twenty nickels, half a dollar for an offering to Yahweh.Everyone who is counted, from twenty years old and over, will give the offering to Yahweh.The rich won’t give more, and the poor won’t give less, than the half dollar, when they give the offering of Yahweh to cover your sin for your lives.Take the money to cover your sin from the people of Israel, and use it for the work of the worship service; that it may be a reminder to Yahweh for the people of Israel, to cover your sin for your lives.”
[17-21] Then Yahweh said to Moses,”Also make a pan of brass to wash in, and the base for it of brass. Put it between the Meeting Place and the altar, and put water in it.Aaron and his sons will wash their hands and their feet in it.When they go into the Meeting Place, they’ll wash with water, so that they won’t die; or when they come to the altar to minister, to burn an offering of fire to Yahweh.So they’ll wash their hands and their feet so that they won’t die: and this will be a rule for the priests forever.”
[22-29]Then Yahweh said to Moses,”Also take fine spices: five hundred dollars worth of liquid myrrh, and half as much, two hundred and fifty of fragrant cinnamon, two hundred and fifty of sweet cane,and five hundred of cassia, after the dollar of the place of worship; and a five quart measure of olive oil.Make it a holy anointing oil, a perfume mixed in the art of the perfumer: it will be a holy anointing oil.Use it to anoint the Meeting Place, the Box of the Law, the table and all its tools, the lamp stand and its tools, the altar of incense,the altar of burnt offering with all its tools, and the pan with its base.Dedicate them, that they may be most holy. Whatever touches them will be holy.
[30-33]Anoint Aaron and his sons, and dedicate them, that they may minister to Me as My priests.Then speak to the people of Israel, saying, `This will be a holy anointing oil to Me forever.It won’t be put on anyone but the priests, nor will you make any like it, using this mixture because it’s holy. So it will be holy to you.Whoever mixes any like it, or puts some on anyone other than a priest, will be cut off from the people.`”
[34-38] Then Yahweh said to Moses, “Then take sweet spices, gum resin, onycha, and galbanum; sweet spices with pure frankincense, with an equal weight of each;and make incense of it, a perfume mixed in the art of the perfumer, and salted, making it pure and holy:Crush some of it very small, and put it before the law in the Meeting Place where I’ll meet with you. It will be to you most holy.Make this incense, by this mixture. Don’t make it for yourselves because it’s holy to you for Yahweh.Whoever makes any like it, for its sweet smell, will be cut off from the people.”
