21 thee into the place which I have prepared. Beware of him, and obey his voice,

provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions : for my name is in 22 him. But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I

will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and I an adversary unto thine adversaries. 23 For mine Angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto the Amorites, and

the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebus24 ites : and I will cut them off. Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve

them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite 25 break down their images. And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall

bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of 26 thee. There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the 27 number of thy days I will fulfil. I will send my fear before thee, and will de

stroy all the people to whom thou shalt come, and I will make all thine enemies 93 turn their backs unto thee. And I will send hornets before thee, which shall 29 drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from before thee. I will

not drive them out from before thee in one year ; lest the land become desolate, 30 and the beast of the field multiply against thee. By little and little I will drive

them out from before thee, until thou be increased, and inherit the land. 31 And I will set thy bounds from the Red Sea even unto the sea of the Philis

tines, and from the desert unto the river: for I will deliver the inhabitants of 32 the land into your hand; and thou shalt drive them out before thee. Thou 33 shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods. They shall not dwell

in thy land, lest they make thee sin against me: for if thou serve their gods, it

will surely be a snare unto thee. 24 And he said unto Moses, Come up unto the Lord, thou, and Aaron, Nadab,

and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel; and worship ye afar off. And 2 Moses alone shall come near the LORD: but they shall not come nigh; neither shall the people go up with him.

And Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and said, All the words 4 which the Lord hath said will we do. And Moses wrote all the words of the

LORD, and rose up early in the morning, and builded an altar under the hill, and 5 twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel. And he sent young men

of the children of Israel, which offered burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace 6 offerings of oxen unto the Lorn. And Moses took half of the blood, and put 7 it in basins; and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar. And he took the

book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, 8 All that the Lord hath said will we do, and be obedient. And Moses took

the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the

covenant, which the Lord hath made with you concerning all these words. 9 Then went up Moses and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of the elders 10 of Israel : and they saw the God of Israel : and there was under his feet as it were

a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clear. 11 ness. And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also

they saw God, and did eat and drink. 12 And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there :

and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have 13 written; that thou mayest teach them. And Moses rose up, and his minister 14 Joshua : and Moses went up into the mount of God. And he said unto the

elders, Tarry ye here for us, until we come again unto you : and, behold, Aaron and Hur are with you: if any man have any matters to do, let him come unto

them. 15, 16 And Moses went up into the mount, and a cloud covered the mount. And

the glory of the Lord abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six

days : and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud. 17 And the sight of the glory of the Lord was like devouring fire on the top of the 18 mount in the eyes of the children of Israel. And Moses went into the midst of

the cloud, and gat him up into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty

days and forty nights. 25 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel,

that they ' bring me an 4 offering: of every man that giveth it willingly with his i Or, I will afflict them that 2 Heb. neck.

3 heart ye shall take my offering. And this is the offering which ye shall take of 4 them; gold, and silver, and brass, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and 'fine 5 linen, and goats

' hair, and rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittim 6,7 wood, oil for the light, spices for anointing oil, and for sweet incense, onyx

8 stones, and stones to be set in the ephod, and in the breastplate. And let them 9 make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them. According to all that

I show thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the in

struments thereof, even so shall ye make it. 10 And they shall make an ark of shittim wood : two cubits and a half shall be

the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a 11 half the height thereof. And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, within and

without shalt thou overlay it, and shalt make upon it a crown of gold round 12 about. And thou shalt cast four rings of gold for it, and put them in the four

corners thereof; and two rings shall be in the one side of it, and two rings in the 13 other side of it. And thou shalt make staves of shittim wood, and overlay them 14 with gold. And thou shalt put the staves into ihe rings by the sides of the ark, 15 that the ark may be borne with them. The staves shall be in the rings of the 16 ark: they shall not be taken from it. And thou shalt put into the ark the testi

mony which I shall give thee. 17 And thou shalt make a mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half shall be 18 the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof. And thou shalt

make two cherubim of gold, of beaten work shalt thou make them, in the two 19 ends of the mercy seat. And make one cherub on the one end, and the other

cherub on the other end : even 2 of the mercy seat shall ye make the cherubim 20 on the two ends thereof. And the cherubim shall stretch forth their wings on

high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces shall look one to 21 another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubim be. And thou

shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the 22 testimony that I shall give thee. And there I will meet with thee, and I will

commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cheru. bim which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee

in commandment unto the children of Israel. 23 Thou shalt also make a table of shittim wood : two cubits shall be the length

thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height 24 thereof. And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, and make thereto a crown 25 of gold round about. And thou shalt make unto it a border of an hand breadth

round about, and thou shalt make a golden crown to the border thereof round 26 about. And thou shalt make for it four rings of gold, and put the rings in the 27 four corners that are on the four feet thereof. Over against the border shall 28 the rings be for places of the staves to bear the table. And thou shalt make the

staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold, that the table may be borne 29 with them. And thou shalt make the dishes thereof, and spoons thereof, and

covers thereof, and bowls thereof, to cover withal : of pure gold shalt thou 30 make them. And thou shalt set upon the table showbread before me alway. 31 And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work shall the

candlestick be made : his shaft, and his branches, his bowls, his knops, and his 32 flowers, shall be of the same. And six branches shall come out of the sides of it;

three branches of the candlestick out of the one side, and three branches of the 33 candlestick out of the other side: three bowls made like unto almonds, with a

knop and a flower in one branch; and three bowls made like almonds in the

other branch, with a knop and a flower: so in the six branches that come out of 34 the candlestick. And in the candlestick shall be four bowls made like unto 35 almonds, with their knops and their flowers. And there shall be a knop under

two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same, and

a knop under two branches of the same, according to the six branches that pro36 ceed out of the candlestick. Their knops and their branches shall be of the 37 same: all of it shall be one beaten work of pure gold. And thou shalt make the

seven lamps thereof: and they shall 4 light the lamps thereof, that they may give 38 light over against 5it. And the tongs thereof, and the snuffdishes thereof, shall 39 be of pure gold. Of a talent of pure gold shall he make it, with all these vessels.

the mount. 26

Moreover thou shalt make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubim 2 of cunning work shalt thou 2 make them. The length of one curtain shall be eight and twenty cubits, and the breadth of one curtain

four cubits: and every one of the curtains shall have one 3 measure. The five curtains shall be coupled together one to another; and 4 other five curtains shall be coupled one to another. And thou shalt make loops

of blue upon the edge of the one curtain from the selvedge in the coupling; and

likewise shalt thou make in the uttermost edge of another curtain, in the coup5 ling of the second. Fifty loops shalt thou make in the one curtain, and fifty

loops shalt thou make in the edge of the curtain that is in the coupling of the 6 second; that the loops may take hold one of another. And thou shalt make

fifty taches of gold, and couple the curtains together with the taches: and it

shall be one tabernacle. 7 And thou shalt make curtains of goats' hair to be a covering upon the taberna8 cle: eleven curtains shalt thou make. The length of one curtain shall be thirty

cubits, and the breadth of one curtain four cubits: and the eleven curtains shall 9 be all of one measure. And thou shalt couple five curtains by themselves, and

six curtains by themselves, and shalt double the sixth curtain in the forefront of 10 the tabernacle. And thou shalt make fifty loops on the edge of the one curtain

that is outmost in the coupling, and fifty loops in the edge of the curtain which 11 coupleth the second. And thou shalt make fifty taches of brass, and put the 12 taches into the loops, and couple the 3 tent together, that it may be one. And

the remnant that remaineth of the curtains of the tent, the half curtain that re13 maineth, shall hang over the backside of the tabernacle. And a cubit on the one

side, and a cubit on the other side 4 of that which remaineth in the length of the curtains of the tent, it shall hang over the sides of the tabernacle on this side

and on that side, to cover it. 14 And thou shalt make a covering for the tent of rams' skins dyed red, and a

covering above of badgers' skins. 15 And thou shalt make boards for the tabernacle of shittim wood standing 16 up. Ten cubits shall be the length of a board, and a cubit and a half shall be the 17 breadth of one board. Two 5 tenons shall there be in one board, set in order one

against another: thus shalt thou make for all the boards of the tabernacle. 18

And thou shalt make the boards for the tabernacle, twenty boards on the south 19 side southward. And thou shalt make forty sockets of silver under the twenty

boards; two sockets under one board for his two tenons, and two sockets under another board for his two tenons.

And for the second side of the tabernacle on the north side there shall be 21 twenty boards : and their forty sockets of silver; two sockets under one board, and two sockets under another board.

And for the sides of the tabernacle westward thou shalt make six boards. 23 And two boards shalt thou make for the corners of the tabernacle in the 24 two sides. And they shall be coupled together beneath, and they shall be

coupled together above the head of it unto one ring : thus shall it be for them 25 both; they shall be for the two corners. And they shall be eight boards, and

their sockets of silver, sixteen sockets; two sockets under one board, and two

sockets under another board. 26 And thou shalt make bars of shittim wood ; five for the boards of the one side 27 of the tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the other side of the tabernacle,

and five bars for the boards of the side of the tabernacle, for the two sides 28 westward. And the middle bar in the midst of the boards shall reach from end 29 to end. And thou shalt overlay the boards with gold, and make their rings of

gold for places for the bars : and thou shalt overlay the bars with gold. 30 And thou shalt rear up the tabernacle according to the fashion thereof which

was showed thee in the mount. 31 And thou shalt make a vail of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined 92 linen of cunning work : with cherubim shall it be made: and thou shalt hang it upon four pillars of shittim wood overlaid with gold: their hooks shall be of gold, 1 Heb. which thou wast caused to see.

33 upon the four sockets of silver. And thou shalt hang up the vail under the

taches, that thou mayest bring in thither within the vail the ark of the testimony:

and the vail shall divide unto you between the holy place and the most holy. 34 And thou shalt put the mercy seat upon the ark of the testimony in the most 35 holy place. And thou shalt set the table without the vail, and the candlestick

over against the table on the side of the tabernacle toward the south: and thou

shalt put the table on the north side. 36 And thou shalt make an hanging for the door of the tent, of blue, and purple, 37 and scarlet, and fine twined linen, wrought with needlework. And thou shalt

make for the hanging five pillars of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold, and

their hooks shall be of gold : and thou shalt cast five sockets of brass for them. 27 And thou shalt make an altar of shittim wood, five cubits long, and five cubits

And the staves shall be put into the rings, and the 8 staves shall be upon the two sides of the altar, to bear it. Hollow with boards shalt thou make it: as I it was showed thee in the mount, so shall they make it.

And thou shalt make the court of the tabernacle: for the south side southward there shall be hangings for the court of fine twined linen of an hundred cubits 10 long for one side: and the twenty pillars thereof and their twenty sockets shall 11 be of brass; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets shall be of silver.

And for the breadth of the court on the west side shall 13 be hangings of fifty cubits: their pillars ten, and their sockets ten. And the 14 breadth of the court on the east side eastward shall be fifty cubits. The hangings

the service thereof, and all the pins thereof, and all the pins of the court, shall be

of brass. 20 And thou shalt command the children of Israel, that they bring thee pure oil 21 olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamp S to burn always. In the tabernacle

of the congregation without the vail, which is before the testimony, Aaron and his sons shall order it from evening to morning before the Lord; it shall be a

statute for ever unto their generations on the behalf of the children of Israel. 28 And take thou unto thee Aaron thy brother, and his sons with him, from

among the children of Israel, that he may minister unto me in the priest's office, 2 even Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron's sons. And thou 3 shalt make holy garments for Aaron thy brother for glory and for beauty. And

thou shalt speak unto all that are wise hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit

of wisdom, that they may make Aaron's garments to consecrate him, that he may 4 minister unto me in the priest's office. And these are the garments which they

shall make; a breastplate, and an ephod, and a robe, and a broidered coat, a mi.

tre, and a girdle : and they shall make holy garments for Aaron thy brother, and 5 his sons, that he may minister unto me in the priest's office. And they shall take gold, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen.

the "curious girdle of the ephod, which is upon it, shall be of the same, accord

ing to the work thereof; even of gold, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine 9 twined linen. And thou shalt take two onyx stones, and grave on them the 10 names of the children of Israel : six of their names on one stone, and the other 11 six names of the rest on the other stone, according to their birth. With the

work of an engraver in stone, like the engravings of a signet, shalt thou engrave

the two stones with the names of the children of Israel : thou shalt make them 12 to be set in ouches of gold. And thou shalt put the two stones upon the shoul

ders of the ephod for stones of memorial unto the children of Israel : and Aaron

shall bear their names before the LORD upon his two shoulders for a memorial. 13, 14 And thou shalt make ouches of gold; and two chains of pure gold at the ends;

of wreathen work shalt thou make them, and fasten the wreathen chains to the

ouches. 15 And thou shalt make the breastplate of judgment with cunning work; after

the work of the ephod thou shalt make it; of gold, of blue, and of purple, 16 and of scarlet, and of fine twined linen, shalt thou make it. Foursquare it shali

fourth row a beryl, and an onyx, and a jasper : they shall be set in gold in their 21 * inclosings. And the stones shall be with the names of the children of Israel,

twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet ; every one with 22 his name shall they be according to the twelve tribes. And thou shalt make upon 23 the breastplate chains at the ends of wreathen work of pure gold. And thou

shalt make upon the breastplate two rings of gold, and shalt put the two rings on 24 the two ends of the breastplate. And thou shalt put the two wreathen chains of 25 gold in the two rings which are on the ends of the breastplate. And the other

two ends of the two wreathen chains thou shalt fasten in the two ouches, and put 26 them on the shoulderpieces of the ephod before it. And thou shalt make two

rings of gold, and thou shalt put them upon the two ends of the breastplate in 27 the border thereof, which is in the side of the ephod inward. And two other rings

of gold thou shalt make, and shalt put them on the two sides of the ephod under

neath, toward the forepart thereof, over against the other coupling thereof, 28 above the curious girdle of the ephod. And they shall bind the breastplate by

the rings thereof unto the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it may be

above the curious girdle of the ephod, and that the breastplate be not loosed from 29 the ephod. And Aaron shall bear the names of the children of Israel in the

breastplate of judgment upon his heart, when he goeth in unto the holy place, for

a memorial before the LORD continually. 30 And thou shalt put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim and the Thum.

before the LORD continually. 81, 32 And thou shalt make the robe of the ephed all of blue. And there shall be

an hole in the top of it, in the midst thereof: it shall have a binding of woven

work round about the hole of it, as it were the hole of an habergeon, that it be 33 not rent. And beneath upon the 5 hem of it thou shalt make pomegranates of

blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, round about the hem thereof; and bells of 34 gold between them round about : a golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden 35 bell and a pomegranate, upon the hem of the robe round about. And it shall be

upon Aaron to minister : and his sound shall be heard when he goeth in unto

the holy place before the Lord, and when he cometh out, that he die not. 36 And thou shalt make a plate of pure gold, and grave upon it, like the engrav37 ings of a signet, HOLINESS TO THE LORD. And thou shalt put it on

a blue lace, that it may be upon the mitre ; upon the forefront of the mitre it 38 shall be. And it shall be upon Aaron's forehead, that Aaron may bear the
