Exodus 37

 

וַיַּעַשׂ בְּצַלְאֵל אֶת־הָאָרֹן עֲצֵי שִׁטִּים אַמָּתַיִם וָחֵצִי אָרְכֹּו וְאַמָּה וָחֵצִי רָחְבֹּו וְאַמָּה וָחֵצִי קֹמָתֹו   37:1

Exod. 37:1  And Bezaleel made the ark of wood of acacia, two cubits and a half its length, and a cubit and a half its width, and a cubit and a half its height.

וַיְצַפֵּהוּ זָהָב טָהֹור מִבַּיִת וּמִחוּץ וַיַּעַשׂ לֹו זֵר זָהָב סָבִיב   37:2

Exod. 37:2  And he laid pure gold over it inside and outside, and made a crown of gold for it all around.

וַיִּצֹק לֹו אַרְבַּע טַבְּעֹת זָהָב עַל אַרְבַּע פַּעֲמֹתָיו וּשְׁתֵּי טַבָּעֹת עַל־צַלְעֹו הָאֶחָת וּשְׁתֵּי טַבָּעֹות עַל־   37:3

צַלְעֹו הַשֵּׁנִית

Exod. 37:3  And he cast four rings of gold for it on its four corners, with two rings on its one end and two rings on its other end.

Regarding the eighth word in this verse, translated as its ... corners, see Exod. 25:12.

וַיַּעַשׂ בַּדֵּי עֲצֵי שִׁטִּים וַיְצַף אֹתָם זָהָב   37:4

Exod. 37:4  And he made staves of wood of acacia and laid gold over them.

וַיָּבֵא אֶת־הַבַּדִּים בַּטַּבָּעֹת עַל צַלְעֹת הָאָרֹן לָשֵׂאת אֶת־הָאָרֹן   37:5

Exod. 37:5  And he passed the staves through the rings on the ends of the ark for carrying the ark.

וַיַּעַשׂ כַּפֹּרֶת זָהָב טָהֹור אַמָּתַיִם וָחֵצִי אָרְכָּהּ וְאַמָּה וָחֵצִי רָחְבָּהּ   37:6

Exod. 37:6  And he made an ark cover of pure gold, two cubits and a half its length, and a cubit and a half its width.

וַיַּעַשׂ שְׁנֵי כְרֻבִים זָהָב מִקְשָׁה עָשָׂה אֹתָם מִשְּׁנֵי קְצֹות הַכַּפֹּרֶת   37:7

Exod. 37:7  And he made two cherubim of gold.  He made them from beaten work out of the two ends of the ark cover,

כְּרוּב־אֶחָד מִקָּצָה מִזֶּה וּכְרוּב־אֶחָד מִקָּצָה מִזֶּה מִן־הַכַּפֹּרֶת עָשָׂה אֶת־הַכְּרֻבִים מִשְּׁנֵי   37:8

[קִצְוֹותֹו) [קְצֹותָיו)

Exod. 37:8  one cherub out of this end and one cherub out of that end from the ark cover; he made the cherubim from its two ends.

Another of those errors occasionally identified in the Hebrew spelling occurs here in the parentheses, the allegedly correct spelling being shown in the brackets.  The assumed correct spelling, as it happens, appears in Exod. 25:19.  This identical “error” is repeated in Exod. 39:4.                                     [Return to Exod. 39:4]

וַיִּהְיוּ הַכְּרֻבִים פֹּרְשֵׂי כְנָפַיִם לְמַעְלָה סֹכְכִים בְּכַנְפֵיהֶם עַל־הַכַּפֹּרֶת וּפְנֵיהֶם אִישׁ אֶל־אָחִיו אֶל־   37:9

הַכַּפֹּרֶת הָיוּ פְּנֵי הַכְּרֻבִים

Exod. 37:9  And the cherubim had a spread of wings to the heights, a shield with their wings over the ark cover, with their faces each to the other. Toward the ark cover were the faces of the cherubim.

וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת־הַשֻּׁלְחָן עֲצֵי שִׁטִּים אַמָּתַיִם אָרְכֹּו וְאַמָּה רָחְבֹּו וְאַמָּה וָחֵצִי קֹמָתֹו   37:10

Exod. 37:10   And he made the table of wood of acacia two cubits its length, and a cubit its width, and a cubit and a half its height.

וַיְצַף אֹתֹו זָהָב טָהֹור וַיַּעַשׂ לֹו זֵר זָהָב סָבִיב   37:11

Exod. 37:11   And he laid pure gold over it and made a crown of gold for it all around.

וַיַּעַשׂ לֹו מִסְגֶּרֶת טֹפַח סָבִיב וַיַּעַשׂ זֵר־זָהָב לְמִסְגַּרְתֹּו סָבִיב   37:12

Exod. 37:12   And he made a border for it of a handbreadth all around, and made a crown of gold for its border all around.

וַיִּצֹק לֹו אַרְבַּע טַבְּעֹת זָהָב וַיִּתֵּן אֶת־הַטַּבָּעֹת עַל אַרְבַּע הַפֵּאֹת אֲשֶׁר לְאַרְבַּע רַגְלָיו   37:13

Exod. 37:13   And he cast four rings of gold for it and put the rings on the four corners which were by its four feet.

לְעֻמַּת הַמִּסְגֶּרֶת הָיוּ הַטַּבָּעֹת בָּתִּים לַבַּדִּים לָשֵׂאת אֶת־הַשֻּׁלְחָן   37:14

Exod. 37:14   At the edge of the border were the rings, the places for the staves for carrying the table.

וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת־הַבַּדִּים עֲצֵי שִׁטִּים וַיְצַף אֹתָם זָהָב לָשֵׂאת אֶת־הַשֻּׁלְחָן   37:15

Exod. 37:15   And he made the staves of wood of acacia for carrying the table and laid gold over them.

וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת־הַכֵּלִים אֲשֶׁר עַל־הַשֻּׁלְחָן אֶת־קְעָרֹתָיו וְאֶת־כַּפֹּתָיו וְאֵת מְנַקִּיֹּתָיו וְאֶת־הַקְּשָׂוֹת אֲשֶׁר   37:16

יֻסַּךְ בָּהֵן זָהָב טָהֹור

Exod. 37:16   And he made the vessels that were on the table, its dishes and its pans and its bowls, and the jars with which to pour into them, of pure gold.

וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת־הַמְּנֹרָה זָהָב טָהֹור מִקְשָׁה עָשָׂה אֶת־הַמְּנֹרָה יְרֵכָהּ וְקָנָהּ גְּבִיעֶיהָ כַּפְתֹּרֶיהָ וּפְרָחֶיהָ    37:17

מִמֶּנָּה הָיוּ

Exod. 37:17   And he made the lamp stand of pure gold.  Of beaten work he made the lamp stand.  Its base and its shaft, its cups, its knops, and its flowers were out of it.

וְשִׁשָּׁה קָנִים יֹצְאִים מִצִּדֶּיהָ שְׁלֹשָׁה קְנֵי מְנֹרָה מִצִּדָּהּ הָאֶחָד וּשְׁלֹשָׁה קְנֵי מְנֹרָה מִצִּדָּהּ הַשֵּׁנִי   37:18

Exod. 37:18   And six branches were coming out of its sides, three branches of the lamp stand from the one side and three branches of the lamp stand from the other side,

שְׁלֹשָׁה גְבִעִים מְשֻׁקָּדִים בַּקָּנֶה הָאֶחָד כַּפְתֹּר וָפֶרַח וּשְׁלֹשָׁה גְבִעִים מְשֻׁקָּדִים בְּקָנֶה אֶחָד כַּפְתֹּר   37:19

וָפָרַח כֵּן לְשֵׁשֶׁת הַקָּנִים הַיֹּצְאִים מִן־הַמְּנֹרָה

Exod. 37:19   three cups like almond blossoms, a knop and a flower in the one branch, and three cups like almond blossoms, a knop and a flower in the other branch.  So it was for the six branches coming out of the lamp stand.

וּבַמְּנֹרָה אַרְבָּעָה גְבִעִים מְשֻׁקָּדִים כַּפְתֹּרֶיהָ וּפְרָחֶיהָ   37:20

Exod. 37:20   And in the lamp stand there were four cups like almond blossoms, its knops, and its flowers,

וְכַפְתֹּר תַּחַת שְׁנֵי הַקָּנִים מִמֶּנָּה וְכַפְתֹּר תַּחַת שְׁנֵי הַקָּנִים מִמֶּנָּה וְכַפְתֹּר תַּחַת־שְׁנֵי הַקָּנִים מִמֶּנָּה   37:21

לְשֵׁשֶׁת הַקָּנִים הַיֹּצְאִים מִמֶּנָּה

Exod. 37:23   And he made its seven lamps and it tongs and its snuff dishes of pure gold,

כִּכָּר זָהָב טָהֹור עָשָׂה אֹתָהּ וְאֵת כָּל־כֵּלֶיהָ   37:24

Exod. 37:24   He made it and all its implements of a talent of pure gold.

וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת־מִזְבַּח הַקְּטֹרֶת עֲצֵי שִׁטִּים אַמָּה אָרְכֹּו וְאַמָּה רָחְבֹּו רָבוּעַ וְאַמָּתַיִם קֹמָתֹו מִמֶּנּוּ הָיוּ    37:25

קַרְנֹתָיו

Exod. 37:25   And he made the altar of incense of wood of acacia, a cubit its length and a cubit its width, square, and two cubits its height.  Its horns were from it.
