Exodus 37:10 – 38:31 (EHV)

See series: Through My Bible

Exodus 37

The Table

10 He made a table of acacia wood, thirty-six inches long, eighteen inches wide, and twenty-seven inches high. 11 He overlaid it with pure gold and made a gold border around it. [1] 12 He made a three-inch rim around it. He made a gold border on its rim all the way around it. 13 He made four gold rings for it and put the rings at the four corners above the four legs of the table. 14 The rings were close to the border to hold the poles used to carry the table. 15 He made the poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold, so that the table could be carried with them. 16 He made the vessels and the accessories for the table out of pure gold—its dishes, [2] its small bowls, [3] its larger bowls, and its pitchers [4] to pour out drink offerings.

The Lampstand

17 He made a lampstand [5] of pure gold. The lampstand was made of hammered metal. Its base, its shaft, its cups, its buds, and its flowers were all formed as one piece with the lampstand. 18 There were six branches going out from its sides. Three branches of the lampstand went out from one side, and three branches of the lampstand went out from the other side. 19 Three cups like almond blossoms with buds and flowers were on the first branch, and three cups like almond blossoms with buds and flowers were on the branch opposite it. It was the same for all six branches that went out from the lampstand. 20 On the lampstand itself he made four cups like almond blossoms with buds and flowers. 21 The buds under one pair of branches formed one piece with the lampstand, and the buds under the second pair of branches formed one piece with the lampstand, and the buds under the third pair of branches formed one piece with the lampstand—the same for all six branches going out of the lampstand. 22 Its buds and branches were made as one piece with it. All of it was one hammered work of pure gold.

23 He made seven lamps for it. Its wick trimmers and its pans [6] were pure gold. 24 It was made with seventy-five pounds [7] of pure gold, along with all these accessories.

The Altar for Incense

25 He made the altar for incense. He made it of acacia wood. Its length was eighteen inches, and its width was eighteen inches. It was square, and its height was three feet. Its horns formed one piece with it. 26 He overlaid it with pure gold, its top, all its sides, and its horns. He made a gold border [8] around it. 27 He made two gold rings to go under its border. He made them for two opposite sides. They were holders for poles with which to carry it. 28 He made the poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold.

29 He made the holy anointing oil and the pure incense of fragrant spices, the work of a perfume maker.

The Altar for Sacrifices

Exodus 38

He made the altar for burnt offerings from acacia wood. It was square, seven and a half feet long and seven and a half feet wide. It was four and a half feet high. He made horns on its four corners. These horns were made as one piece with the altar, and he overlaid the altar with bronze. He made all the utensils for the altar—the pails, the shovels, the basins, the meat hooks, [9] and the fire pans—of bronze. He made a grate for it, which was a latticework of bronze, and he made four bronze rings for the four corners of the latticework grate. He set the grate in place below the top edge of the altar, so that the grate rested halfway down from the top of the altar. [10] He made poles for the altar, poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with bronze. He put these poles through the rings on two sides of the altar for carrying it. He made the altar hollow. Its sides were made of boards.

The Large Basin

He made a large bronze basin. Its pedestal also was bronze. He made it from the mirrors of the women who served at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting.

The Courtyard

He made the courtyard. For the south side of the courtyard he made hangings of fine woven linen, one hundred fifty feet long for that side. 10 He made twenty posts for it and twenty bronze socket bases for them. The hooks for the posts and the connectors were silver. [11] 11 In the same way, for the north side there were hangings one hundred fifty feet long, with twenty posts and twenty bronze socket bases. The hooks for the posts and their connectors were silver. 12 For the courtyard on the west side there were hangings seventy-five feet wide, with ten posts and ten socket bases. 13 The width of the court on the east side was seventy-five feet. 14 The hangings on one side of the entry gate were twenty-two feet six inches wide with three posts and three socket bases. 15 For the other side there were hangings twenty-two feet six inches wide with three posts and three socket bases. 16 All the hangings around the court were of fine woven linen. 17 The socket bases for the posts were bronze. The hooks of the posts and their connectors were silver, and the overlay of the capitals on top of the posts was silver, and all the posts of the courtyard had silver bands.

18 There was a screen for the entry gate of the courtyard, made of blue, purple, and scarlet material and of fine woven linen, the work of an embroiderer. It was thirty feet wide, and like the hangings of the courtyard it was seven and a half feet high. 19 It had four posts and four bronze socket bases. The hooks of the posts and their connectors were silver, and the overlay of the capitals on top of the posts was silver. 20 All the tent stakes for the Dwelling and all the stakes for the surrounding courtyard were bronze.

The Materials

21 These are the inventories of the material used for the Dwelling, that is, the Dwelling of the Testimony, as they were recorded by the Levites under the direction of Ithamar, the son of Aaron the priest, as Moses had commanded. 22 Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, from the tribe of Judah, made all that the Lord had commanded Moses. 23 With him was Oholiab son of Ahisamak, from the tribe of Dan, an engraver, a skilled workman, and an embroiderer in blue, purple, and scarlet material and in fine linen.

24 All the gold that was used for all the work of the sanctuary project (that is, the gold from the wave offering) was 29 talents and 730 shekels, [12] measured by the shekel of the sanctuary. 25 The silver received from those who were counted in the census of the community was 100 talents and 1,775 shekels, measured by the shekel of the sanctuary. 26 The rate was one beka a head (that is, half a shekel a head), measured by the shekel of the sanctuary. One beka was given by each man as he passed over to those who had been counted—a beka each was given by 603,550 men from twenty years old and older. 27 The one hundred talents of silver were used for casting the sockets for the sanctuary and the sockets for the veil. One hundred sockets were made from the one hundred talents, a talent per socket. [13] 28 From the 1,775 shekels, Bezalel made hooks for the posts, overlaid their capitals, and made connectors for them. 29 The bronze from the offering was 70 talents and 2,400 shekels. 30 With this he made the sockets for the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, the bronze altar, the bronze grate for it, all the utensils for the altar, 31 the sockets around the courtyard, the sockets for the gate of the courtyard, all the stakes for the tent, and all the stakes around the courtyard.

Footnotes

  1. Exodus 37:11 The meanings of the Hebrew words misgeret and zer are uncertain. They may be decorative trim, or they may be frames to give support and stability to the table. The rabbinic writers do not agree whether the reference is to a rim above the table or to a skirt below the tabletop.
  2. Exodus 37:16 Etymology suggests that a qe’ara is a deep dish or bowl, but some think it means platter.
  3. Exodus 37:16 The Hebrew word kaf refers to the palm of the hand, so it refers to a small bowl, spoon, or ladle.
  4. Exodus 37:16 The precise identification of the four types of vessels is uncertain. Jars and jugs are among the possibilities. Some rabbinic writers believed the utensils included molds for the bread and stands to separate the loaves. This and many other discussions in the rabbinic writings show that there was no consensus on the meaning of many terms in this section of Exodus.
  5. Exodus 37:17 Hebrew menorah
  6. Exodus 37:23 The meaning of these two items is uncertain. Tongs and snuffers are among the other possibilities.
  7. Exodus 37:24 Literally one talent. The weight of a talent is uncertain. A talent is also a monetary unit.
  8. Exodus 37:26 Or rim, trim, frame, or edging
  9. Exodus 38:3 Or forks
  10. Exodus 38:5 The Hebrew of verses 4 and 5 is difficult, and interpretations of the placement of the grate vary.
  11. Exodus 38:10 It is not clear if this refers to bands connecting the hooks to the posts or to connecting rods between the posts.
  12. Exodus 38:24 This was more than a ton of gold. The amounts of silver and bronze in verses 25 and 29 are even greater.
  13. Exodus 38:27 About 75 pounds, though the weight of a talent is uncertain.
