Chapter 36

א וְעָשָׂה בְצַלְאֵל וְאָהֳלִיאָב וְכֹל אִישׁ חֲכַם-לֵב, אֲשֶׁר נָתַן יְהוָה חָכְמָה וּתְבוּנָה בָּהֵמָּה, לָדַעַת לַעֲשֹׂת, אֶת-כָּל-מְלֶאכֶת עֲבֹדַת הַקֹּדֶשׁ–לְכֹל אֲשֶׁר-צִוָּה, יְהוָה. 1

And Bezalel and Oholiab shall work, and every wise-hearted man, in whom jehovah hath put wisdom and understanding to know how to work all the work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that jehovah hath commanded.’

ב וַיִּקְרָא מֹשֶׁה, אֶל-בְּצַלְאֵל וְאֶל-אָהֳלִיאָב, וְאֶל כָּל-אִישׁ חֲכַם-לֵב, אֲשֶׁר נָתַן יְהוָה חָכְמָה בְּלִבּוֹ–כֹּל אֲשֶׁר נְשָׂאוֹ לִבּוֹ, לְקָרְבָה אֶל-הַמְּלָאכָה לַעֲשֹׂת אֹתָהּ. 2

And Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab, and every wise-hearted man, in whose heart jehovah had put wisdom, even every one whose heart stirred him up to come unto the work to do it.

ג וַיִּקְחוּ מִלִּפְנֵי מֹשֶׁה, אֵת כָּל-הַתְּרוּמָה אֲשֶׁר הֵבִיאוּ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל לִמְלֶאכֶת עֲבֹדַת הַקֹּדֶשׁ–לַעֲשֹׂת אֹתָהּ; וְהֵם הֵבִיאוּ אֵלָיו עוֹד, נְדָבָה–בַּבֹּקֶר בַּבֹּקֶר. 3

And they received of Moses all the offering, which the sons of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the sanctuary, wherewith to make it. And they brought yet unto him freewill-offerings every morning.

ד וַיָּבֹאוּ, כָּל-הַחֲכָמִים, הָעֹשִׂים, אֵת כָּל-מְלֶאכֶת הַקֹּדֶשׁ–אִישׁ-אִישׁ מִמְּלַאכְתּוֹ, אֲשֶׁר-הֵמָּה עֹשִׂים. 4

And all the wise men, that wrought all the work of the sanctuary, came every man from his work which they wrought.

ה וַיֹּאמְרוּ אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר, מַרְבִּים הָעָם לְהָבִיא, מִדֵּי הָעֲבֹדָה לַמְּלָאכָה, אֲשֶׁר-צִוָּה יְהוָה לַעֲשֹׂת אֹתָהּ. 5

And they spoke unto Moses, saying:

‘The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work, which jehovah commanded to make.’

ו וַיְצַו מֹשֶׁה, וַיַּעֲבִירוּ קוֹל בַּמַּחֲנֶה לֵאמֹר, אִישׁ וְאִשָּׁה אַל-יַעֲשׂוּ-עוֹד מְלָאכָה, לִתְרוּמַת הַקֹּדֶשׁ; וַיִּכָּלֵא הָעָם, מֵהָבִיא. 6 And Moses gave commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp, saying:

‘Let neither man nor woman make any more work for the offering of the sanctuary.’

So the people were restrained from bringing.

ז וְהַמְּלָאכָה, הָיְתָה דַיָּם לְכָל-הַמְּלָאכָה–לַעֲשׂוֹת אֹתָהּ; וְהוֹתֵר. {ס} 7

For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it, and too much. {S}

ח וַיַּעֲשׂוּ כָל-חֲכַם-לֵב בְּעֹשֵׂי הַמְּלָאכָה, אֶת-הַמִּשְׁכָּן–עֶשֶׂר יְרִיעֹת: שֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר, וּתְכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתוֹלַעַת שָׁנִי–כְּרֻבִים מַעֲשֵׂה חֹשֵׁב, עָשָׂה אֹתָם. 8

And every wise-hearted man among them that wrought the work made the tabernacle with ten curtains:

of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, with cherubim the work of the skilful workman made he them.

ט אֹרֶךְ הַיְרִיעָה הָאַחַת, שְׁמֹנֶה וְעֶשְׂרִים בָּאַמָּה, וְרֹחַב אַרְבַּע בָּאַמָּה, הַיְרִיעָה הָאֶחָת: מִדָּה אַחַת, לְכָל-הַיְרִיעֹת. 9 The length of each curtain was eight and twenty cubits, and the breadth of each curtain four cubits; all the curtains had one measure.

י וַיְחַבֵּר אֶת-חֲמֵשׁ הַיְרִיעֹת, אַחַת אֶל-אֶחָת; וְחָמֵשׁ יְרִיעֹת חִבַּר, אַחַת אֶל-אֶחָת. 10

And he coupled five curtains one to another; and the other five curtains he coupled one to another.

יא וַיַּעַשׂ לֻלְאֹת תְּכֵלֶת, עַל שְׂפַת הַיְרִיעָה הָאֶחָת, מִקָּצָה, בַּמַּחְבָּרֶת; כֵּן עָשָׂה, בִּשְׂפַת הַיְרִיעָה, הַקִּיצוֹנָה, בַּמַּחְבֶּרֶת הַשֵּׁנִית. 11

And he made loops of blue upon the edge of the one curtain that was outmost in the first set; likewise he made in the edge of the curtain that was outmost in the second set.

יב חֲמִשִּׁים לֻלָאֹת, עָשָׂה בַּיְרִיעָה הָאֶחָת, וַחֲמִשִּׁים לֻלָאֹת עָשָׂה בִּקְצֵה הַיְרִיעָה, אֲשֶׁר בַּמַּחְבֶּרֶת הַשֵּׁנִית: מַקְבִּילֹת, הַלֻּלָאֹת–אַחַת, אֶל-אֶחָת. 12

Fifty loops made he in the one curtain, and fifty loops made he in the edge of the curtain that was in the second set; the loops were opposite one to another.

יג וַיַּעַשׂ, חֲמִשִּׁים קַרְסֵי זָהָב; וַיְחַבֵּר אֶת-הַיְרִיעֹת אַחַת אֶל-אַחַת, בַּקְּרָסִים, וַיְהִי הַמִּשְׁכָּן, אֶחָד. {פ} 13

And he made fifty clasps of gold, and coupled the curtains one to another with the clasps; so the tabernacle was one. {P}

יד וַיַּעַשׂ יְרִיעֹת עִזִּים, לְאֹהֶל עַל-הַמִּשְׁכָּן: עַשְׁתֵּי-עֶשְׂרֵה יְרִיעֹת, עָשָׂה אֹתָם. 14

And he made curtains of goats’ hair for a tent over the tabernacle; eleven curtains he made them.

טו אֹרֶךְ הַיְרִיעָה הָאַחַת, שְׁלֹשִׁים בָּאַמָּה, וְאַרְבַּע אַמּוֹת, רֹחַב הַיְרִיעָה הָאֶחָת: מִדָּה אַחַת, לְעַשְׁתֵּי עֶשְׂרֵה יְרִיעֹת. 15 The length of each curtain was thirty cubits, and four cubits the breadth of each curtain; the eleven curtains had one measure.

טז וַיְחַבֵּר אֶת-חֲמֵשׁ הַיְרִיעֹת, לְבָד; וְאֶת-שֵׁשׁ הַיְרִיעֹת, לְבָד. 16

And he coupled five curtains by themselves, and six curtains by themselves.

יז וַיַּעַשׂ לֻלָאֹת חֲמִשִּׁים, עַל שְׂפַת הַיְרִיעָה, הַקִּיצֹנָה, בַּמַּחְבָּרֶת; וַחֲמִשִּׁים לֻלָאֹת, עָשָׂה עַל-שְׂפַת הַיְרִיעָה, הַחֹבֶרֶת, הַשֵּׁנִית. 17

And he made fifty loops on the edge of the curtain that was outmost in the first set, and fifty loops made he upon the edge of the curtain which was outmost in the second set.

יח וַיַּעַשׂ קַרְסֵי נְחֹשֶׁת, חֲמִשִּׁים, לְחַבֵּר אֶת-הָאֹהֶל, לִהְיֹת אֶחָד. 18

And he made fifty clasps of brass to couple the tent together, that it might be one.

יט וַיַּעַשׂ מִכְסֶה לָאֹהֶל, עֹרֹת אֵילִם מְאָדָּמִים, וּמִכְסֵה עֹרֹת תְּחָשִׁים, מִלְמָעְלָה. {ס} 19

And he made a covering for the tent of rams’ skins dyed red, and a covering of sealskins above. {S}

כ וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת-הַקְּרָשִׁים, לַמִּשְׁכָּן, עֲצֵי שִׁטִּים, עֹמְדִים. 20

And he made the boards for the tabernacle of acacia-wood, standing up.

כא עֶשֶׂר אַמֹּת, אֹרֶךְ הַקָּרֶשׁ; וְאַמָּה וַחֲצִי הָאַמָּה, רֹחַב הַקֶּרֶשׁ הָאֶחָד. 21

Ten cubits was the length of a board, and a cubit and a half the breadth of each board.

כב שְׁתֵּי יָדֹת, לַקֶּרֶשׁ הָאֶחָד, מְשֻׁלָּבֹת, אַחַת אֶל-אֶחָת; כֵּן עָשָׂה, לְכֹל קַרְשֵׁי הַמִּשְׁכָּן. 22

Each board had two tenons, joined one to another. Thus did he make for all the boards of the tabernacle.

כג וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת-הַקְּרָשִׁים, לַמִּשְׁכָּן: עֶשְׂרִים קְרָשִׁים, לִפְאַת נֶגֶב תֵּימָנָה. 23

And he made the boards for the tabernacle; twenty boards for the south side southward.

כד וְאַרְבָּעִים, אַדְנֵי-כֶסֶף–עָשָׂה, תַּחַת עֶשְׂרִים הַקְּרָשִׁים: שְׁנֵי אֲדָנִים תַּחַת-הַקֶּרֶשׁ הָאֶחָד, לִשְׁתֵּי יְדֹתָיו, וּשְׁנֵי אֲדָנִים תַּחַת-הַקֶּרֶשׁ הָאֶחָד, לִשְׁתֵּי יְדֹתָיו. 24

And he made forty sockets of silver under the twenty boards: two sockets under one board for its two tenons, and two sockets under another board for its two tenons.

כה וּלְצֶלַע הַמִּשְׁכָּן הַשֵּׁנִית, לִפְאַת צָפוֹן, עָשָׂה, עֶשְׂרִים קְרָשִׁים. 25

And for the second side of the tabernacle, on the north side, he made twenty boards,

כו וְאַרְבָּעִים אַדְנֵיהֶם, כָּסֶף–שְׁנֵי אֲדָנִים, תַּחַת הַקֶּרֶשׁ הָאֶחָד, וּשְׁנֵי אֲדָנִים, תַּחַת הַקֶּרֶשׁ הָאֶחָד. 26

and their forty sockets of silver:

two sockets under one board, and two sockets under another board.

כז וּלְיַרְכְּתֵי הַמִּשְׁכָּן, יָמָּה, עָשָׂה, שִׁשָּׁה קְרָשִׁים. 27

And for the hinder part of the tabernacle westward he made six boards.

כח וּשְׁנֵי קְרָשִׁים עָשָׂה, לִמְקֻצְעֹת הַמִּשְׁכָּן–בַּיַּרְכָתָיִם. 28

And two boards made he for the corners of the tabernacle in the hinder part;

כט וְהָיוּ תוֹאֲמִם, מִלְּמַטָּה, וְיַחְדָּו יִהְיוּ תַמִּים אֶל-רֹאשׁוֹ, אֶל-הַטַּבַּעַת הָאֶחָת; כֵּן עָשָׂה לִשְׁנֵיהֶם, לִשְׁנֵי הַמִּקְצֹעֹת. 29 that they might be double beneath, and in like manner they should be complete unto the top thereof unto the first ring. Thus he did to both of them in the two corners.

ל וְהָיוּ, שְׁמֹנָה קְרָשִׁים, וְאַדְנֵיהֶם כֶּסֶף, שִׁשָּׁה עָשָׂר אֲדָנִים–שְׁנֵי אֲדָנִים שְׁנֵי אֲדָנִים, תַּחַת הַקֶּרֶשׁ הָאֶחָד. 30

And there were eight boards, and their sockets of silver, sixteen sockets:

under every board two sockets.

לא וַיַּעַשׂ בְּרִיחֵי, עֲצֵי שִׁטִּים–חֲמִשָּׁה, לְקַרְשֵׁי צֶלַע-הַמִּשְׁכָּן הָאֶחָת. 31

And he made bars of acacia-wood:

five for the boards of the one side of the tabernacle,

לב וַחֲמִשָּׁה בְרִיחִם, לְקַרְשֵׁי צֶלַע-הַמִּשְׁכָּן הַשֵּׁנִית; וַחֲמִשָּׁה בְרִיחִם לְקַרְשֵׁי הַמִּשְׁכָּן, לַיַּרְכָתַיִם יָמָּה. 32

and five bars for the boards of the other side of the tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the tabernacle for the hinder part westward.

לג וַיַּעַשׂ, אֶת-הַבְּרִיחַ הַתִּיכֹן, לִבְרֹחַ בְּתוֹךְ הַקְּרָשִׁים, מִן-הַקָּצֶה אֶל-הַקָּצֶה. 33

And he made the middle bar to pass through in the midst of the boards from the one end to the other.

לד וְאֶת-הַקְּרָשִׁים צִפָּה זָהָב, וְאֶת-טַבְּעֹתָם עָשָׂה זָהָב–בָּתִּים, לַבְּרִיחִם; וַיְצַף אֶת-הַבְּרִיחִם, זָהָב. 34

And he overlaid the boards with gold, and made their rings of gold for holders for the bars, and overlaid the bars with gold.

לה וַיַּעַשׂ, אֶת-הַפָּרֹכֶת, תְּכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתוֹלַעַת שָׁנִי, וְשֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר; מַעֲשֵׂה חֹשֵׁב עָשָׂה אֹתָהּ, כְּרֻבִים. 35

And he made the veil of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen; with the cherubim the work of the skilful workman made he it.

לו וַיַּעַשׂ לָהּ, אַרְבָּעָה עַמּוּדֵי שִׁטִּים, וַיְצַפֵּם זָהָב, וָוֵיהֶם זָהָב; וַיִּצֹק לָהֶם, אַרְבָּעָה אַדְנֵי-כָסֶף. 36

And he made thereunto four pillars of acacia, and overlaid them with gold, their hooks being of gold; and he cast for them four sockets of silver.

לז וַיַּעַשׂ מָסָךְ לְפֶתַח הָאֹהֶל, תְּכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתוֹלַעַת שָׁנִי וְשֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר, מַעֲשֵׂה, רֹקֵם. 37

And he made a screen for the door of the Tent, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, the work of the weaver in colours;

לח וְאֶת-עַמּוּדָיו חֲמִשָּׁה וְאֶת-וָוֵיהֶם, וְצִפָּה רָאשֵׁיהֶם וַחֲשֻׁקֵיהֶם זָהָב; וְאַדְנֵיהֶם חֲמִשָּׁה, נְחֹשֶׁת. {פ} 38

and the five pillars of it with their hooks; and he overlaid their capitals and their fillets with gold; and their five sockets were of brass. {P}


Chapter 37

א וַיַּעַשׂ בְּצַלְאֵל אֶת-הָאָרֹן, עֲצֵי שִׁטִּים: אַמָּתַיִם וָחֵצִי אָרְכּוֹ, וְאַמָּה וָחֵצִי רָחְבּוֹ, וְאַמָּה וָחֵצִי, קֹמָתוֹ. 1

And Bezalel made the ark of acacia-wood:

two cubits and a half was the length of it, and a cubit and a half the breadth of it, and a cubit and a half the height of it.

ב וַיְצַפֵּהוּ זָהָב טָהוֹר, מִבַּיִת וּמִחוּץ; וַיַּעַשׂ לוֹ זֵר זָהָב, סָבִיב. 2

And he overlaid it with pure gold within and without, and made a crown of gold to it round about.

ג וַיִּצֹק לוֹ, אַרְבַּע טַבְּעֹת זָהָב, עַל, אַרְבַּע פַּעֲמֹתָיו; וּשְׁתֵּי טַבָּעֹת, עַל-צַלְעוֹ הָאֶחָת, וּשְׁתֵּי טַבָּעֹת, עַל-צַלְעוֹ הַשֵּׁנִית. 3 And he cast for it four rings of gold, in the four feet thereof:

even two rings on the one side of it, and two rings on the other side of it.

ד וַיַּעַשׂ בַּדֵּי, עֲצֵי שִׁטִּים; וַיְצַף אֹתָם, זָהָב. 4

And he made staves of acacia-wood, and overlaid them with gold.

ה וַיָּבֵא אֶת-הַבַּדִּים בַּטַּבָּעֹת, עַל צַלְעֹת הָאָרֹן, לָשֵׂאת, אֶת-הָאָרֹן. 5

And he put the staves into the rings on the sides of the ark, to bear the ark.

ו וַיַּעַשׂ כַּפֹּרֶת, זָהָב טָהוֹר: אַמָּתַיִם וָחֵצִי אָרְכָּהּ, וְאַמָּה וָחֵצִי רָחְבָּהּ. 6

And he made an ark-cover of pure gold:

two cubits and a half was the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof.

ז וַיַּעַשׂ שְׁנֵי כְרֻבִים, זָהָב; מִקְשָׁה עָשָׂה אֹתָם, מִשְּׁנֵי קְצוֹת הַכַּפֹּרֶת. 7

And he made two cherubim of gold:

of beaten work made he them, at the two ends of the ark-cover:

ח כְּרוּב-אֶחָד מִקָּצָה מִזֶּה, וּכְרוּב-אֶחָד מִקָּצָה מִזֶּה; מִן-הַכַּפֹּרֶת עָשָׂה אֶת-הַכְּרֻבִים, מִשְּׁנֵי קצוותו (קְצוֹתָיו). 8

one cherub at the one end, and one cherub at the other end; of one piece with the ark-cover made he the cherubim at the two ends thereof.

ט וַיִּהְיוּ הַכְּרֻבִים פֹּרְשֵׂי כְנָפַיִם לְמַעְלָה, סֹכְכִים בְּכַנְפֵיהֶם עַל-הַכַּפֹּרֶת, וּפְנֵיהֶם, אִישׁ אֶל-אָחִיו; אֶל-הַכַּפֹּרֶת–הָיוּ, פְּנֵי הַכְּרֻבִים. {פ} 9

And the cherubim spread out their wings on high, screening the ark-cover with their wings, with their faces one to another; toward the ark-cover were the faces of the cherubim. {P}

י וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת-הַשֻּׁלְחָן, עֲצֵי שִׁטִּים: אַמָּתַיִם אָרְכּוֹ וְאַמָּה רָחְבּוֹ, וְאַמָּה וָחֵצִי קֹמָתוֹ. 10

And he made the table of acacia-wood:

two cubits was the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.

יא וַיְצַף אֹתוֹ, זָהָב טָהוֹר; וַיַּעַשׂ לוֹ זֵר זָהָב, סָבִיב. 11

And he overlaid it with pure gold, and made thereto a crown of gold round about.

יב וַיַּעַשׂ לוֹ מִסְגֶּרֶת טֹפַח, סָבִיב; וַיַּעַשׂ זֵר-זָהָב לְמִסְגַּרְתּוֹ, סָבִיב. 12

And he made unto it a border of a hand-breadth round about, and made a golden crown to the border thereof round about.

יג וַיִּצֹק לוֹ, אַרְבַּע טַבְּעֹת זָהָב; וַיִּתֵּן, אֶת-הַטַּבָּעֹת, עַל אַרְבַּע הַפֵּאֹת, אֲשֶׁר לְאַרְבַּע רַגְלָיו. 13

And he cast for it four rings of gold, and put the rings in the four corners that were on the four feet thereof.

יד לְעֻמַּת, הַמִּסְגֶּרֶת, הָיוּ, הַטַּבָּעֹת; בָּתִּים, לַבַּדִּים, לָשֵׂאת, אֶת-הַשֻּׁלְחָן. 14

Close by the border were the rings, the holders for the staves to bear the table.

טו וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת-הַבַּדִּים עֲצֵי שִׁטִּים, וַיְצַף אֹתָם זָהָב, לָשֵׂאת, אֶת-הַשֻּׁלְחָן. 15

And he made the staves of acacia-wood, and overlaid them with gold, to bear the table.

טז וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת-הַכֵּלִים אֲשֶׁר עַל-הַשֻּׁלְחָן, אֶת-קְעָרֹתָיו וְאֶת-כַּפֹּתָיו וְאֵת מְנַקִּיֹּתָיו, וְאֶת-הַקְּשָׂו‍ֹת, אֲשֶׁר יֻסַּךְ בָּהֵן–זָהָב, טָהוֹר. {פ} 16

And he made the vessels which were upon the table, the dishes thereof, and the pans thereof, and the bowls thereof, and the jars thereof, wherewith to pour out, of pure gold. {P}

יז וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת-הַמְּנֹרָה, זָהָב טָהוֹר; מִקְשָׁה עָשָׂה אֶת-הַמְּנֹרָה, יְרֵכָהּ וְקָנָהּ–גְּבִיעֶיהָ כַּפְתֹּרֶיהָ וּפְרָחֶיהָ, מִמֶּנָּה הָיוּ. 17 And he made the candlestick of pure gold:

of beaten work made he the candlestick, even its base, and its shaft; its cups, its knops, and its flowers, were of one piece with it.

יח וְשִׁשָּׁה קָנִים, יֹצְאִים מִצִּדֶּיהָ: שְׁלֹשָׁה קְנֵי מְנֹרָה, מִצִּדָּהּ הָאֶחָד, וּשְׁלֹשָׁה קְנֵי מְנֹרָה, מִצִּדָּהּ הַשֵּׁנִי. 18

And there were six branches going out of the sides thereof:

three branches of the candlestick out of the one side thereof, and three branches of the candlestick out of the other side thereof;

יט שְׁלֹשָׁה גְבִעִים מְשֻׁקָּדִים בַּקָּנֶה הָאֶחָד, כַּפְתֹּר וָפֶרַח, וּשְׁלֹשָׁה גְבִעִים מְשֻׁקָּדִים בְּקָנֶה אֶחָד, כַּפְתֹּר וָפָרַח; כֵּן לְשֵׁשֶׁת הַקָּנִים, הַיֹּצְאִים מִן-הַמְּנֹרָה. 19

three cups made like almond-blossoms in one branch, a knop and a flower; and three cups made like almond-blossoms in the other branch, a knop and a flower. So for the six branches going out of the candlestick.

כ וּבַמְּנֹרָה, אַרְבָּעָה גְבִעִים: מְשֻׁקָּדִים–כַּפְתֹּרֶיהָ, וּפְרָחֶיהָ. 20

And in the candlestick were four cups made like almond-blossoms, the knops thereof, and the flowers thereof;

כא וְכַפְתֹּר תַּחַת שְׁנֵי הַקָּנִים מִמֶּנָּה, וְכַפְתֹּר תַּחַת שְׁנֵי הַקָּנִים מִמֶּנָּה, וְכַפְתֹּר, תַּחַת-שְׁנֵי הַקָּנִים מִמֶּנָּה–לְשֵׁשֶׁת, הַקָּנִים, הַיֹּצְאִים, מִמֶּנָּה. 21

and a knop under two branches of one piece with it, and a knop under two branches of one piece with it, and a knop under two branches of one piece with it, for the six branches going out of it.

כב כַּפְתֹּרֵיהֶם וּקְנֹתָם, מִמֶּנָּה הָיוּ; כֻּלָּהּ מִקְשָׁה אַחַת, זָהָב טָהוֹר. 22

Their knops and their branches were of one piece with it; the whole of it was one beaten work of pure gold.

כג וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת-נֵרֹתֶיהָ, שִׁבְעָה; וּמַלְקָחֶיהָ וּמַחְתֹּתֶיהָ, זָהָב טָהוֹר. 23

And he made the lamps thereof, seven, and the tongs thereof, and the snuffdishes thereof, of pure gold.

כד כִּכָּר זָהָב טָהוֹר, עָשָׂה אֹתָהּ, וְאֵת, כָּל-כֵּלֶיהָ. {פ} 24

Of a talent of pure gold made he it, and all the vessels thereof. {P}

כה וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת-מִזְבַּח הַקְּטֹרֶת, עֲצֵי שִׁטִּים: אַמָּה אָרְכּוֹ וְאַמָּה רָחְבּוֹ רָבוּעַ, וְאַמָּתַיִם קֹמָתוֹ–מִמֶּנּוּ, הָיוּ קַרְנֹתָיו. 25

And he made the altar of incense of acacia-wood:

a cubit was the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, four-square; and two cubits was the height thereof; the horns thereof were of one piece with it.

כו וַיְצַף אֹתוֹ זָהָב טָהוֹר, אֶת-גַּגּוֹ וְאֶת-קִירֹתָיו סָבִיב–וְאֶת-קַרְנֹתָיו; וַיַּעַשׂ לוֹ זֵר זָהָב, סָבִיב. 26

And he overlaid it with pure gold, the top thereof, and the sides thereof round about, and the horns of it; and he made unto it a crown of gold round about.

כז וּשְׁתֵּי טַבְּעֹת זָהָב עָשָׂה-לוֹ מִתַּחַת לְזֵרוֹ, עַל שְׁתֵּי צַלְעֹתָיו, עַל, שְׁנֵי צִדָּיו–לְבָתִּים לְבַדִּים, לָשֵׂאת אֹתוֹ בָּהֶם. 27 And he made for it two golden rings under the crown thereof, upon the two ribs thereof, upon the two sides of it, for holders for staves wherewith to bear it.

כח וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת-הַבַּדִּים, עֲצֵי שִׁטִּים; וַיְצַף אֹתָם, זָהָב. 28

And he made the staves of acacia-wood, and overlaid them with gold.

כט וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת-שֶׁמֶן הַמִּשְׁחָה, קֹדֶשׁ, וְאֶת-קְטֹרֶת הַסַּמִּים, טָהוֹר–מַעֲשֵׂה, רֹקֵחַ. {ס} 29

And he made the holy anointing oil, and the pure incense of sweet spices, after the art of the perfumer. {S}


Chapter 38

א וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת-מִזְבַּח הָעֹלָה, עֲצֵי שִׁטִּים: חָמֵשׁ אַמּוֹת אָרְכּוֹ וְחָמֵשׁ-אַמּוֹת רָחְבּוֹ, רָבוּעַ, וְשָׁלֹשׁ אַמּוֹת, קֹמָתוֹ. 1

And he made the altar of burnt-offering of acacia-wood:

five cubits was the length thereof, and five cubits the breadth thereof, four-square, and three cubits the height thereof.

ב וַיַּעַשׂ קַרְנֹתָיו, עַל אַרְבַּע פִּנֹּתָיו–מִמֶּנּוּ, הָיוּ קַרְנֹתָיו; וַיְצַף אֹתוֹ, נְחֹשֶׁת. 2

And he made the horns thereof upon the four corners of it; the horns thereof were of one piece with it; and he overlaid it with brass.

ג וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת-כָּל-כְּלֵי הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, אֶת-הַסִּירֹת וְאֶת-הַיָּעִים וְאֶת-הַמִּזְרָקֹת, אֶת-הַמִּזְלָגֹת, וְאֶת-הַמַּחְתֹּת; כָּל-כֵּלָיו, עָשָׂה נְחֹשֶׁת. 3

And he made all the vessels of the altar, the pots, and the shovels, and the basins, the flesh-hooks, and the fire-pans; all the vessels thereof made he of brass.

ד וַיַּעַשׂ לַמִּזְבֵּחַ מִכְבָּר, מַעֲשֵׂה רֶשֶׁת נְחֹשֶׁת, תַּחַת כַּרְכֻּבּוֹ מִלְּמַטָּה, עַד-חֶצְיוֹ. 4

And he made for the altar a grating of network of brass, under the ledge round it beneath, reaching halfway up.

ה וַיִּצֹק אַרְבַּע טַבָּעֹת, בְּאַרְבַּע הַקְּצָו‍ֹת–לְמִכְבַּר הַנְּחֹשֶׁת: בָּתִּים, לַבַּדִּים. 5

And he cast four rings for the four ends of the grating of brass, to be holders for the staves.

ו וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת-הַבַּדִּים, עֲצֵי שִׁטִּים; וַיְצַף אֹתָם, נְחֹשֶׁת. 6

And he made the staves of acacia-wood, and overlaid them with brass.

ז וַיָּבֵא אֶת-הַבַּדִּים בַּטַּבָּעֹת, עַל צַלְעֹת הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, לָשֵׂאת אֹתוֹ, בָּהֶם; נְבוּב לֻחֹת, עָשָׂה אֹתוֹ. {ס} 7

And he put the staves into the rings on the sides of the altar, wherewith to bear it; he made it hollow with planks. {S}

ח וַיַּעַשׂ, אֵת הַכִּיּוֹר נְחֹשֶׁת, וְאֵת, כַּנּוֹ נְחֹשֶׁת–בְּמַרְאֹת, הַצֹּבְאֹת, אֲשֶׁר צָבְאוּ, פֶּתַח אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד. {ס} 8

And he made the laver of brass, and the base thereof of brass, of the mirrors of the serving women that did service at the door of the tent of meeting. {S}

ט וַיַּעַשׂ, אֶת-הֶחָצֵר: לִפְאַת נֶגֶב תֵּימָנָה, קַלְעֵי הֶחָצֵר שֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר, מֵאָה, בָּאַמָּה. 9

And he made the court; for the south side southward the hangings of the court were of fine twined linen, a hundred cubits.

י עַמּוּדֵיהֶם עֶשְׂרִים, וְאַדְנֵיהֶם עֶשְׂרִים נְחֹשֶׁת; וָוֵי הָעַמּוּדִים וַחֲשֻׁקֵיהֶם, כָּסֶף. 10

Their pillars were twenty, and their sockets twenty, of brass; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets were of silver.

יא וְלִפְאַת צָפוֹן, מֵאָה בָאַמָּה–עַמּוּדֵיהֶם עֶשְׂרִים, וְאַדְנֵיהֶם עֶשְׂרִים נְחֹשֶׁת; וָוֵי הָעַמּוּדִים וַחֲשֻׁקֵיהֶם, כָּסֶף. 11

And for the north side a hundred cubits, their pillars twenty, and their sockets twenty, of brass; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets of silver.

יב וְלִפְאַת-יָם, קְלָעִים חֲמִשִּׁים בָּאַמָּה–עַמּוּדֵיהֶם עֲשָׂרָה, וְאַדְנֵיהֶם עֲשָׂרָה; וָוֵי הָעַמֻּדִים וַחֲשׁוּקֵיהֶם, כָּסֶף. 12

And for the west side were hangings of fifty cubits, their pillars ten, and their sockets ten; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets of silver.

יג וְלִפְאַת קֵדְמָה מִזְרָחָה, חֲמִשִּׁים אַמָּה. 13

And for the east side eastward fifty cubits.

יד קְלָעִים חֲמֵשׁ-עֶשְׂרֵה אַמָּה, אֶל-הַכָּתֵף; עַמּוּדֵיהֶם שְׁלֹשָׁה, וְאַדְנֵיהֶם שְׁלֹשָׁה. 14

The hangings for the one side [of the gate] were fifteen cubits; their pillars three, and their sockets three.

טו וְלַכָּתֵף הַשֵּׁנִית, מִזֶּה וּמִזֶּה לְשַׁעַר הֶחָצֵר, קְלָעִים, חֲמֵשׁ עֶשְׂרֵה אַמָּה; עַמֻּדֵיהֶם שְׁלֹשָׁה, וְאַדְנֵיהֶם שְׁלֹשָׁה. 15

And so for the other side; on this hand and that hand by the gate of the court were hangings of fifteen cubits; their pillars three, and their sockets three.

טז כָּל-קַלְעֵי הֶחָצֵר סָבִיב, שֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר. 16

All the hangings of the court round about were of fine twined linen.

יז וְהָאֲדָנִים לָעַמֻּדִים, נְחֹשֶׁת, וָוֵי הָעַמּוּדִים וַחֲשׁוּקֵיהֶם כֶּסֶף, וְצִפּוּי רָאשֵׁיהֶם כָּסֶף; וְהֵם מְחֻשָּׁקִים כֶּסֶף, כֹּל עַמֻּדֵי הֶחָצֵר. 17

And the sockets for the pillars were of brass; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets of silver; and the overlaying of their capitals of silver; and all the pillars of the court were filleted with silver.

יח וּמָסַךְ שַׁעַר הֶחָצֵר, מַעֲשֵׂה רֹקֵם–תְּכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתוֹלַעַת שָׁנִי, וְשֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר; וְעֶשְׂרִים אַמָּה, אֹרֶךְ, וְקוֹמָה בְרֹחַב חָמֵשׁ אַמּוֹת, לְעֻמַּת קַלְעֵי הֶחָצֵר. 18

And the screen for the gate of the court was the work of the weaver in colours, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen; and twenty cubits was the length, and the height in the breadth was five cubits, answerable to the hangings of the court.

יט וְעַמֻּדֵיהֶם, אַרְבָּעָה, וְאַדְנֵיהֶם אַרְבָּעָה, נְחֹשֶׁת; וָוֵיהֶם כֶּסֶף, וְצִפּוּי רָאשֵׁיהֶם וַחֲשֻׁקֵיהֶם כָּסֶף. 19

And their pillars were four, and their sockets four, of brass; their hooks of silver, and the overlaying of their capitals and their fillets of silver.

כ וְכָל-הַיְתֵדֹת לַמִּשְׁכָּן וְלֶחָצֵר, סָבִיב–נְחֹשֶׁת. {ס} 20

And all the pins of the tabernacle, and of the court round about, were of brass. {S}

כא אֵלֶּה פְקוּדֵי הַמִּשְׁכָּן מִשְׁכַּן הָעֵדֻת, אֲשֶׁר פֻּקַּד עַל-פִּי מֹשֶׁה: עֲבֹדַת, הַלְוִיִּם, בְּיַד אִיתָמָר, בֶּן-אַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֵן. 21

These are the accounts of the tabernacle, even the tabernacle of the testimony, as they were rendered according to the commandment of Moses, through the service of the Levites, by the hand of Ithamar, the son of Aaron the priest.–

כב וּבְצַלְאֵל בֶּן-אוּרִי בֶן-חוּר, לְמַטֵּה יְהוּדָה, עָשָׂה, אֵת כָּל-אֲשֶׁר-צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת-מֹשֶׁה. 22

And Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, made all that jehovah commanded Moses.

כג וְאִתּוֹ, אָהֳלִיאָב בֶּן-אֲחִיסָמָךְ לְמַטֵּה-דָן–חָרָשׁ וְחֹשֵׁב; וְרֹקֵם, בַּתְּכֵלֶת וּבָאַרְגָּמָן, וּבְתוֹלַעַת הַשָּׁנִי, וּבַשֵּׁשׁ. {ס} 23 And with him was Oholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, a craftsman, and a skilful workman, and a weaver in colours, in blue, and in purple, and in scarlet, and fine linen.– {S}

כד כָּל-הַזָּהָב, הֶעָשׂוּי לַמְּלָאכָה, בְּכֹל, מְלֶאכֶת הַקֹּדֶשׁ–וַיְהִי זְהַב הַתְּנוּפָה, תֵּשַׁע וְעֶשְׂרִים כִּכָּר, וּשְׁבַע מֵאוֹת וּשְׁלֹשִׁים שֶׁקֶל, בְּשֶׁקֶל הַקֹּדֶשׁ. 24

All the gold that was used for the work in all the work of the sanctuary, even the gold of the offering, was twenty and nine talents, and seven hundred and thirty shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary.

כה וְכֶסֶף פְּקוּדֵי הָעֵדָה, מְאַת כִּכָּר; וְאֶלֶף וּשְׁבַע מֵאוֹת וַחֲמִשָּׁה וְשִׁבְעִים, שֶׁקֶל–בְּשֶׁקֶל הַקֹּדֶשׁ. 25

And the silver of them that were numbered of the congregation was a hundred talents, and a thousand seven hundred and three-score and fifteen shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary:

כו בֶּקַע, לַגֻּלְגֹּלֶת, מַחֲצִית הַשֶּׁקֶל, בְּשֶׁקֶל הַקֹּדֶשׁ–לְכֹל הָעֹבֵר עַל-הַפְּקֻדִים, מִבֶּן עֶשְׂרִים שָׁנָה וָמַעְלָה, לְשֵׁשׁ-מֵאוֹת אֶלֶף וּשְׁלֹשֶׁת אֲלָפִים, וַחֲמֵשׁ מֵאוֹת וַחֲמִשִּׁים. 26

a beka a head, that is, half a shekel, after the shekel of the sanctuary, for every one that passed over to them that are numbered, from twenty years old and upward, for six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty men.

כז וַיְהִי, מְאַת כִּכַּר הַכֶּסֶף, לָצֶקֶת אֵת אַדְנֵי הַקֹּדֶשׁ, וְאֵת אַדְנֵי הַפָּרֹכֶת: מְאַת אֲדָנִים לִמְאַת הַכִּכָּר, כִּכָּר לָאָדֶן. 27 And the hundred talents of silver were for casting the sockets of the sanctuary, and the sockets of the veil: a hundred sockets for the hundred talents, a talent for a socket.

כח וְאֶת-הָאֶלֶף וּשְׁבַע הַמֵּאוֹת, וַחֲמִשָּׁה וְשִׁבְעִים, עָשָׂה וָוִים, לָעַמּוּדִים; וְצִפָּה רָאשֵׁיהֶם, וְחִשַּׁק אֹתָם. 28

And of the thousand seven hundred seventy and five shekels he made hooks for the pillars, and overlaid their capitals, and made fillets for them.

כט וּנְחֹשֶׁת הַתְּנוּפָה, שִׁבְעִים כִּכָּר, וְאַלְפַּיִם וְאַרְבַּע-מֵאוֹת, שָׁקֶל. 29

And the brass of the offering was seventy talents and two thousand and four hundred shekels.

ל וַיַּעַשׂ בָּהּ, אֶת-אַדְנֵי פֶּתַח אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, וְאֵת מִזְבַּח הַנְּחֹשֶׁת, וְאֶת-מִכְבַּר הַנְּחֹשֶׁת אֲשֶׁר-לוֹ; וְאֵת, כָּל-כְּלֵי הַמִּזְבֵּחַ. 30 And therewith he made the sockets to the door of the tent of meeting, and the brazen altar, and the brazen grating for it, and all the vessels of the altar,

לא וְאֶת-אַדְנֵי הֶחָצֵר סָבִיב, וְאֶת-אַדְנֵי שַׁעַר הֶחָצֵר; וְאֵת כָּל-יִתְדֹת הַמִּשְׁכָּן וְאֶת-כָּל-יִתְדֹת הֶחָצֵר, סָבִיב. 31

and the sockets of the court round about, and the sockets of the gate of the court, and all the pins of the tabernacle, and all the pins of the court round about.

Chapter 39

א וּמִן-הַתְּכֵלֶת וְהָאַרְגָּמָן וְתוֹלַעַת הַשָּׁנִי, עָשׂוּ בִגְדֵי-שְׂרָד לְשָׁרֵת בַּקֹּדֶשׁ; וַיַּעֲשׂוּ אֶת-בִּגְדֵי הַקֹּדֶשׁ, אֲשֶׁר לְאַהֲרֹן, כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה. {פ} 1

And of the blue, and purple, and scarlet, they made plaited garments, for ministering in the holy place, and made the holy garments for Aaron, as jehovah commanded Moses. {P}

ב וַיַּעַשׂ, אֶת-הָאֵפֹד: זָהָב, תְּכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתוֹלַעַת שָׁנִי–וְשֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר. 2

And he made the ephod of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.

ג וַיְרַקְּעוּ אֶת-פַּחֵי הַזָּהָב, וְקִצֵּץ פְּתִילִם, לַעֲשׂוֹת בְּתוֹךְ הַתְּכֵלֶת וּבְתוֹךְ הָאַרְגָּמָן, וּבְתוֹךְ תּוֹלַעַת הַשָּׁנִי וּבְתוֹךְ הַשֵּׁשׁ–מַעֲשֵׂה, חֹשֵׁב. 3

And they did beat the gold into thin plates, and cut it into threads, to work it in the blue, and in the purple, and in the scarlet, and in the fine linen, the work of the skilful workman.

ד כְּתֵפֹת עָשׂוּ-לוֹ, חֹבְרֹת–עַל-שְׁנֵי קצוותו (קְצוֹתָיו), חֻבָּר. 4

They made shoulder-pieces for it, joined together; at the two ends was it joined together.

ה וְחֵשֶׁב אֲפֻדָּתוֹ אֲשֶׁר עָלָיו, מִמֶּנּוּ הוּא כְּמַעֲשֵׂהוּ, זָהָב תְּכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתוֹלַעַת שָׁנִי, וְשֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר–כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה. {ס} 5

And the skilfully woven band, that was upon it, wherewith to gird it on, was of the same piece and like the work thereof:

of gold, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, as jehovah commanded Moses. {S}

ו וַיַּעֲשׂוּ אֶת-אַבְנֵי הַשֹּׁהַם, מֻסַבֹּת מִשְׁבְּצֹת זָהָב, מְפֻתָּחֹת פִּתּוּחֵי חוֹתָם, עַל-שְׁמוֹת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל. 6

And they wrought the onyx stones, inclosed in settings of gold, graven with the engravings of a signet, according to the names of the sons of Israel.

ז וַיָּשֶׂם אֹתָם, עַל כִּתְפֹת הָאֵפֹד–אַבְנֵי זִכָּרוֹן, לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל: כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה. {פ} 7

And he put them on the shoulder-pieces of the ephod, to be stones of memorial for the sons of Israel, as jehovah commanded Moses. {P}

ח וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת-הַחֹשֶׁן מַעֲשֵׂה חֹשֵׁב, כְּמַעֲשֵׂה אֵפֹד: זָהָב, תְּכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתוֹלַעַת שָׁנִי–וְשֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר. 8

And he made the breastplate, the work of the skilful workman, like the work of the ephod:

of gold, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.

ט רָבוּעַ הָיָה כָּפוּל, עָשׂוּ אֶת-הַחֹשֶׁן–זֶרֶת אָרְכּוֹ וְזֶרֶת רָחְבּוֹ, כָּפוּל. 9

It was four-square; they made the breastplate double; a span was the length thereof, and a span the breadth thereof, being double.

י וַיְמַלְאוּ-בוֹ–אַרְבָּעָה, טוּרֵי אָבֶן: טוּר, אֹדֶם פִּטְדָה וּבָרֶקֶת–הַטּוּר, הָאֶחָד. 10

And they set in it four rows of stones:

a row of carnelian, topaz, and smaragd was the first row.

יא וְהַטּוּר, הַשֵּׁנִי–נֹפֶךְ סַפִּיר, וְיָהֲלֹם. 11

And the second row, a carbuncle, a sapphire, and an emerald.

יב וְהַטּוּר, הַשְּׁלִישִׁי–לֶשֶׁם שְׁבוֹ, וְאַחְלָמָה. 12

And the third row, a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst.

יג וְהַטּוּר, הָרְבִיעִי–תַּרְשִׁישׁ שֹׁהַם, וְיָשְׁפֵה: מוּסַבֹּת מִשְׁבְּצֹת זָהָב, בְּמִלֻּאֹתָם. 13

And the fourth row, a beryl, an onyx, and a jasper; they were inclosed in fittings of gold in their settings.

יד וְהָאֲבָנִים עַל-שְׁמֹת בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל הֵנָּה, שְׁתֵּים עֶשְׂרֵה–עַל-שְׁמֹתָם: פִּתּוּחֵי חֹתָם אִישׁ עַל-שְׁמוֹ, לִשְׁנֵים עָשָׂר שָׁבֶט. 14 And the stones were according to the names of the sons of Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet, every one according to his name, for the twelve tribes.

טו וַיַּעֲשׂוּ עַל-הַחֹשֶׁן שַׁרְשְׁרֹת גַּבְלֻת, מַעֲשֵׂה עֲבֹת, זָהָב, טָהוֹר. 15

And they made upon the breastplate plaited chains, of wreathen work of pure gold.

טז וַיַּעֲשׂוּ, שְׁתֵּי מִשְׁבְּצֹת זָהָב, וּשְׁתֵּי, טַבְּעֹת זָהָב; וַיִּתְּנוּ, אֶת-שְׁתֵּי הַטַּבָּעֹת, עַל-שְׁנֵי, קְצוֹת הַחֹשֶׁן. 16

And they made two settings of gold, and two gold rings; and put the two rings on the two ends of the breastplate.

יז וַיִּתְּנוּ, שְׁתֵּי הָעֲבֹתֹת הַזָּהָב, עַל-שְׁתֵּי, הַטַּבָּעֹת–עַל-קְצוֹת, הַחֹשֶׁן. 17

And they put the two wreathen chains of gold on the two rings at the ends of the breastplate.

יח וְאֵת שְׁתֵּי קְצוֹת שְׁתֵּי הָעֲבֹתֹת, נָתְנוּ עַל-שְׁתֵּי הַמִּשְׁבְּצֹת; וַיִּתְּנֻם עַל-כִּתְפֹת הָאֵפֹד, אֶל-מוּל פָּנָיו. 18

And the other two ends of the two wreathen chains they put on the two settings, and put them on the shoulder-pieces of the ephod, in the forepart thereof.

יט וַיַּעֲשׂוּ, שְׁתֵּי טַבְּעֹת זָהָב, וַיָּשִׂימוּ, עַל-שְׁנֵי קְצוֹת הַחֹשֶׁן: עַל-שְׂפָתוֹ–אֲשֶׁר אֶל-עֵבֶר הָאֵפֹד, בָּיְתָה. 19

And they made two rings of gold, and put them upon the two ends of the breastplate, upon the edge thereof, which was toward the side of the ephod inward.

כ וַיַּעֲשׂוּ, שְׁתֵּי טַבְּעֹת זָהָב, וַיִּתְּנֻם עַל-שְׁתֵּי כִתְפֹת הָאֵפֹד מִלְּמַטָּה מִמּוּל פָּנָיו, לְעֻמַּת מַחְבַּרְתּוֹ–מִמַּעַל, לְחֵשֶׁב הָאֵפֹד. 20 And they made two rings of gold, and put them on the two shoulder-pieces of the ephod underneath, in the forepart thereof, close by the coupling thereof, above the skilfully woven band of the ephod.

כא וַיִּרְכְּסוּ אֶת-הַחֹשֶׁן מִטַּבְּעֹתָיו אֶל-טַבְּעֹת הָאֵפֹד בִּפְתִיל תְּכֵלֶת, לִהְיֹת עַל-חֵשֶׁב הָאֵפֹד, וְלֹא-יִזַּח הַחֹשֶׁן, מֵעַל הָאֵפֹד–כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה. {פ} 21

And they did bind the breastplate by the rings thereof unto the rings of the ephod with a thread of blue, that it might be upon the skilfully woven band of the ephod, and that the breastplate might not be loosed from the ephod; as jehovah commanded Moses. {P}

כב וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת-מְעִיל הָאֵפֹד, מַעֲשֵׂה אֹרֵג, כְּלִיל, תְּכֵלֶת. 22

And he made the robe of the ephod of woven work, all of blue;

כג וּפִי-הַמְּעִיל בְּתוֹכוֹ, כְּפִי תַחְרָא; שָׂפָה לְפִיו סָבִיב, לֹא יִקָּרֵעַ. 23

and the hole of the robe in the midst thereof, as the hole of a coat of mail, with a binding round about the hole of it, that it should not be rent.

כד וַיַּעֲשׂוּ, עַל-שׁוּלֵי הַמְּעִיל, רִמּוֹנֵי, תְּכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתוֹלַעַת שָׁנִי–מָשְׁזָר. 24

And they made upon the skirts of the robe pomegranates of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and twined linen.

כה וַיַּעֲשׂוּ פַעֲמֹנֵי, זָהָב טָהוֹר; וַיִּתְּנוּ אֶת-הַפַּעֲמֹנִים בְּתוֹךְ הָרִמֹּנִים, עַל-שׁוּלֵי הַמְּעִיל סָבִיב–בְּתוֹךְ, הָרִמֹּנִים. 25

And they made bells of pure gold, and put the bells between the pomegranates upon the skirts of the robe round about, between the pomegranates:

כו פַּעֲמֹן וְרִמֹּן פַּעֲמֹן וְרִמֹּן, עַל-שׁוּלֵי הַמְּעִיל סָבִיב, לְשָׁרֵת, כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת-מֹשֶׁה. {ס} 26

a bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, upon the skirts of the robe round about, to minister in; as jehovah commanded Moses. {S}

כז וַיַּעֲשׂוּ אֶת-הַכָּתְנֹת שֵׁשׁ, מַעֲשֵׂה אֹרֵג, לְאַהֲרֹן, וּלְבָנָיו. 27

And they made the tunics of fine linen of woven work for Aaron, and for his sons,

כח וְאֵת הַמִּצְנֶפֶת שֵׁשׁ, וְאֶת-פַּאֲרֵי הַמִּגְבָּעֹת שֵׁשׁ, וְאֶת-מִכְנְסֵי הַבָּד, שֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר. 28

and the mitre of fine linen, and the goodly head-tires of fine linen, and the linen breeches of fine twined linen,

כט וְאֶת-הָאַבְנֵט שֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר, וּתְכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתוֹלַעַת שָׁנִי–מַעֲשֵׂה רֹקֵם: כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה. {ס} 29

and the girdle of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, the work of the weaver in colours; as jehovah commanded Moses. {S}

ל וַיַּעֲשׂוּ אֶת-צִיץ נֵזֶר-הַקֹּדֶשׁ, זָהָב טָהוֹר; וַיִּכְתְּבוּ עָלָיו, מִכְתַּב פִּתּוּחֵי חוֹתָם–קֹדֶשׁ, לַיהוָה. 30

And they made the plate of the holy crown of pure gold, and wrote upon it a writing, like the engravings of a signet:

HOLY TO JEHOWAH.

לא וַיִּתְּנוּ עָלָיו פְּתִיל תְּכֵלֶת, לָתֵת עַל-הַמִּצְנֶפֶת מִלְמָעְלָה, כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה. {ס} 31

And they tied unto it a thread of blue, to fasten it upon the mitre above; as jehovah commanded Moses. {S}

לב וַתֵּכֶל–כָּל-עֲבֹדַת, מִשְׁכַּן אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד; וַיַּעֲשׂוּ, בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל–כְּכֹל אֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת-מֹשֶׁה, כֵּן עָשׂוּ. {פ} 32

Thus was finished all the work of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting; and the sons of Israel did according to all that jehovah commanded Moses, so did they. {P}

לג וַיָּבִיאוּ אֶת-הַמִּשְׁכָּן אֶל-מֹשֶׁה, אֶת-הָאֹהֶל וְאֶת-כָּל-כֵּלָיו, קְרָסָיו קְרָשָׁיו, בְּרִיחָו וְעַמֻּדָיו וַאֲדָנָיו. 33

And they brought the tabernacle unto Moses, the Tent, and all its furniture, its clasps, its boards, its bars, and its pillars, and its sockets;

לד וְאֶת-מִכְסֵה עוֹרֹת הָאֵילִם, הַמְאָדָּמִים, וְאֶת-מִכְסֵה, עֹרֹת הַתְּחָשִׁים; וְאֵת, פָּרֹכֶת הַמָּסָךְ. 34

and the covering of rams’ skins dyed red, and the covering of sealskins, and the veil of the screen;

לה אֶת-אֲרוֹן הָעֵדֻת, וְאֶת-בַּדָּיו; וְאֵת, הַכַּפֹּרֶת. 35

the ark of the testimony, and the staves thereof, and the ark-cover;

לו אֶת-הַשֻּׁלְחָן, אֶת-כָּל-כֵּלָיו, וְאֵת, לֶחֶם הַפָּנִים. 36

the table, all the vessels thereof, and the showbread;

the pure candlestick, the lamps thereof, even the lamps to be set in order, and all the vessels thereof, and the oil for the light;

לח וְאֵת, מִזְבַּח הַזָּהָב, וְאֵת שֶׁמֶן הַמִּשְׁחָה, וְאֵת קְטֹרֶת הַסַּמִּים; וְאֵת, מָסַךְ פֶּתַח הָאֹהֶל. 38

and the golden altar, and the anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and the screen for the door of the Tent;

לט אֵת מִזְבַּח הַנְּחֹשֶׁת, וְאֶת-מִכְבַּר הַנְּחֹשֶׁת אֲשֶׁר-לוֹ, אֶת-בַּדָּיו, וְאֶת-כָּל-כֵּלָיו; אֶת-הַכִּיֹּר, וְאֶת-כַּנּוֹ. 39

the brazen altar, and its grating of brass, its staves, and all its vessels, the laver and its base;

מ אֵת קַלְעֵי הֶחָצֵר אֶת-עַמֻּדֶיהָ וְאֶת-אֲדָנֶיהָ, וְאֶת-הַמָּסָךְ לְשַׁעַר הֶחָצֵר, אֶת-מֵיתָרָיו, וִיתֵדֹתֶיהָ; וְאֵת, כָּל-כְּלֵי עֲבֹדַת הַמִּשְׁכָּן–לְאֹהֶל מוֹעֵד. 40

the hangings of the court, its pillars, and its sockets, and the screen for the gate of the court, the cords thereof, and the pins thereof, and all the instruments of the service of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting;

מא אֶת-בִּגְדֵי הַשְּׂרָד, לְשָׁרֵת בַּקֹּדֶשׁ; אֶת-בִּגְדֵי הַקֹּדֶשׁ לְאַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֵן, וְאֶת-בִּגְדֵי בָנָיו לְכַהֵן. 41

the plaited garments for ministering in the holy place; the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest’s office.

מב כְּכֹל אֲשֶׁר-צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה: כֵּן עָשׂוּ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, אֵת כָּל-הָעֲבֹדָה. 42

According to all that jehovah commanded Moses, so the sons of Israel did all the work.

מג וַיַּרְא מֹשֶׁה אֶת-כָּל-הַמְּלָאכָה, וְהִנֵּה עָשׂוּ אֹתָהּ–כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, כֵּן עָשׂוּ; וַיְבָרֶךְ אֹתָם, מֹשֶׁה. {פ} 43

And Moses saw all the work, and, behold, they had done it; as jehovah had commanded, even so had they done it. And Moses blessed them. {P}

Chapter 40

א וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר. 1

And jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying:

ב בְּיוֹם-הַחֹדֶשׁ הָרִאשׁוֹן, בְּאֶחָד לַחֹדֶשׁ, תָּקִים, אֶת-מִשְׁכַּן אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד. 2

‘On the first day of the first month shalt thou rear up the tabernacle of the tent of meeting.

ג וְשַׂמְתָּ שָׁם, אֵת אֲרוֹן הָעֵדוּת; וְסַכֹּתָ עַל-הָאָרֹן, אֶת-הַפָּרֹכֶת. 3

And thou shalt put therein the ark of the testimony, and thou shalt screen the ark with the veil.

ד וְהֵבֵאתָ, אֶת-הַשֻּׁלְחָן, וְעָרַכְתָּ, אֶת-עֶרְכּוֹ; וְהֵבֵאתָ, אֶת-הַמְּנֹרָה, וְהַעֲלֵיתָ, אֶת-נֵרֹתֶיהָ. 4

And thou shalt bring in the table, and set in order the bread that is upon it; and thou shalt bring in the candlestick, and light the lamps thereof.

ה וְנָתַתָּה אֶת-מִזְבַּח הַזָּהָב, לִקְטֹרֶת, לִפְנֵי, אֲרוֹן הָעֵדֻת; וְשַׂמְתָּ אֶת-מָסַךְ הַפֶּתַח, לַמִּשְׁכָּן. 5

And thou shalt set the golden altar for incense before the ark of the testimony, and put the screen of the door to the tabernacle.

ו וְנָתַתָּה, אֵת מִזְבַּח הָעֹלָה, לִפְנֵי, פֶּתַח מִשְׁכַּן אֹהֶל-מוֹעֵד. 6

And thou shalt set the altar of burnt-offering before the door of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting.

ז וְנָתַתָּ, אֶת-הַכִּיֹּר, בֵּין-אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, וּבֵין הַמִּזְבֵּחַ; וְנָתַתָּ שָׁם, מָיִם. 7

And thou shalt set the laver between the tent of meeting and the altar, and shalt put water therein.

ח וְשַׂמְתָּ אֶת-הֶחָצֵר, סָבִיב; וְנָתַתָּ, אֶת-מָסַךְ שַׁעַר הֶחָצֵר. 8

And thou shalt set up the court round about, and hang up the screen of the gate of the court.

ט וְלָקַחְתָּ אֶת-שֶׁמֶן הַמִּשְׁחָה, וּמָשַׁחְתָּ אֶת-הַמִּשְׁכָּן וְאֶת-כָּל-אֲשֶׁר-בּוֹ; וְקִדַּשְׁתָּ אֹתוֹ וְאֶת-כָּל-כֵּלָיו, וְהָיָה קֹדֶשׁ. 9

And thou shalt take the anointing oil, and anoint the tabernacle, and all that is therein, and shalt hallow it, and all the furniture thereof; and it shall be holy.

י וּמָשַׁחְתָּ אֶת-מִזְבַּח הָעֹלָה, וְאֶת-כָּל-כֵּלָיו; וְקִדַּשְׁתָּ, אֶת-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, וְהָיָה הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, קֹדֶשׁ קָדָשִׁים. 10

And thou shalt anoint the altar of burnt-offering, and all its vessels, and sanctify the altar; and the altar shall be most holy.

יא וּמָשַׁחְתָּ אֶת-הַכִּיֹּר, וְאֶת-כַּנּוֹ; וְקִדַּשְׁתָּ, אֹתוֹ. 11

And thou shalt anoint the laver and its base, and sanctify it.

יב וְהִקְרַבְתָּ אֶת-אַהֲרֹן וְאֶת-בָּנָיו, אֶל-פֶּתַח אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד; וְרָחַצְתָּ אֹתָם, בַּמָּיִם. 12

And thou shalt bring Aaron and his sons unto the door of the tent of meeting, and shalt wash them with water.

יג וְהִלְבַּשְׁתָּ, אֶת-אַהֲרֹן, אֵת, בִּגְדֵי הַקֹּדֶשׁ; וּמָשַׁחְתָּ אֹתוֹ וְקִדַּשְׁתָּ אֹתוֹ, וְכִהֵן לִי. 13

And thou shalt put upon Aaron the holy garments; and thou shalt anoint him, and sanctify him, that he may minister unto Me in the priest’s office.

יד וְאֶת-בָּנָיו, תַּקְרִיב; וְהִלְבַּשְׁתָּ אֹתָם, כֻּתֳּנֹת. 14

And thou shalt bring his sons, and put tunics upon them.

טו וּמָשַׁחְתָּ אֹתָם, כַּאֲשֶׁר מָשַׁחְתָּ אֶת-אֲבִיהֶם, וְכִהֲנוּ, לִי; וְהָיְתָה לִהְיֹת לָהֶם מָשְׁחָתָם, לִכְהֻנַּת עוֹלָם–לְדֹרֹתָם. 15 And thou shalt anoint them, as thou didst anoint their father, that they may minister unto Me in the priest’s office; and their anointing shall be to them for an everlasting priesthood throughout their generations.’

טז וַיַּעַשׂ, מֹשֶׁה: כְּכֹל אֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֹתוֹ–כֵּן עָשָׂה. {ס} 16

Thus did Moses; according to all that jehovah commanded him, so did he. {S}

יז וַיְהִי בַּחֹדֶשׁ הָרִאשׁוֹן, בַּשָּׁנָה הַשֵּׁנִית–בְּאֶחָד לַחֹדֶשׁ: הוּקַם, הַמִּשְׁכָּן. 17

And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, that the tabernacle was reared up.

יח וַיָּקֶם מֹשֶׁה אֶת-הַמִּשְׁכָּן, וַיִּתֵּן אֶת-אֲדָנָיו, וַיָּשֶׂם אֶת-קְרָשָׁיו, וַיִּתֵּן אֶת-בְּרִיחָיו; וַיָּקֶם, אֶת-עַמּוּדָיו. 18

And Moses reared up the tabernacle, and laid its sockets, and set up the boards thereof, and put in the bars thereof, and reared up its pillars.

יט וַיִּפְרֹשׂ אֶת-הָאֹהֶל, עַל-הַמִּשְׁכָּן, וַיָּשֶׂם אֶת-מִכְסֵה הָאֹהֶל עָלָיו, מִלְמָעְלָה–כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה. {ס} 19 And he spread the tent over the tabernacle, and put the covering of the tent above upon it; as jehovah commanded Moses. {S}

כ וַיִּקַּח וַיִּתֵּן אֶת-הָעֵדֻת, אֶל-הָאָרֹן, וַיָּשֶׂם אֶת-הַבַּדִּים, עַל-הָאָרֹן; וַיִּתֵּן אֶת-הַכַּפֹּרֶת עַל-הָאָרֹן, מִלְמָעְלָה. 20

And he took and put the testimony into the ark, and set the staves on the ark, and put the ark-cover above upon the ark.

כא וַיָּבֵא אֶת-הָאָרֹן, אֶל-הַמִּשְׁכָּן, וַיָּשֶׂם אֵת פָּרֹכֶת הַמָּסָךְ, וַיָּסֶךְ עַל אֲרוֹן הָעֵדוּת–כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה. {ס} 21 And he brought the ark into the tabernacle, and set up the veil of the screen, and screened the ark of the testimony; as jehovah commanded Moses. {S}

כב וַיִּתֵּן אֶת-הַשֻּׁלְחָן בְּאֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, עַל יֶרֶךְ הַמִּשְׁכָּן צָפֹנָה, מִחוּץ, לַפָּרֹכֶת. 22

And he put the table in the tent of meeting, upon the side of the tabernacle northward, without the veil.

כג וַיַּעֲרֹךְ עָלָיו עֵרֶךְ לֶחֶם, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה–כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה. {ס} 23

And he set a row of bread in order upon it before jehovah; as jehovah commanded Moses. {S}

כד וַיָּשֶׂם אֶת-הַמְּנֹרָה בְּאֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, נֹכַח הַשֻּׁלְחָן, עַל יֶרֶךְ הַמִּשְׁכָּן, נֶגְבָּה. 24

And he put the candlestick in the tent of meeting, over against the table, on the side of the tabernacle southward.

כה וַיַּעַל הַנֵּרֹת, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה–כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה. {ס} 25

And he lighted the lamps before jehovah; as jehovah commanded Moses. {S}

כו וַיָּשֶׂם אֶת-מִזְבַּח הַזָּהָב, בְּאֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, לִפְנֵי, הַפָּרֹכֶת. 26

And he put the golden altar in the tent of meeting before the veil;

כז וַיַּקְטֵר עָלָיו, קְטֹרֶת סַמִּים–כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה. {ס} 27

and he burnt thereon incense of sweet spices; as jehovah commanded Moses. {S}

כח וַיָּשֶׂם אֶת-מָסַךְ הַפֶּתַח, לַמִּשְׁכָּן. 28

And he put the screen of the door to the tabernacle.

כט וְאֵת, מִזְבַּח הָעֹלָה, שָׂם, פֶּתַח מִשְׁכַּן אֹהֶל-מוֹעֵד; וַיַּעַל עָלָיו, אֶת-הָעֹלָה וְאֶת-הַמִּנְחָה–כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה. {ס} 29

And the altar of burnt-offering he set at the door of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting, and offered upon it the burnt-offering and the meal-offering; as jehovah commanded Moses. {S}

ל וַיָּשֶׂם, אֶת-הַכִּיֹּר, בֵּין-אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, וּבֵין הַמִּזְבֵּחַ; וַיִּתֵּן שָׁמָּה מַיִם, לְרָחְצָה. 30

And he set the laver between the tent of meeting and the altar, and put water therein, wherewith to wash;

לא וְרָחֲצוּ מִמֶּנּוּ, מֹשֶׁה וְאַהֲרֹן וּבָנָיו, אֶת-יְדֵיהֶם, וְאֶת-רַגְלֵיהֶם. 31

that Moses and Aaron and his sons might wash their hands and their feet thereat;

לב בְּבֹאָם אֶל-אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, וּבְקָרְבָתָם אֶל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ–יִרְחָצוּ: כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה. {ס} 32

when they went into the tent of meeting, and when they came near unto the altar, they should wash; as jehovah commanded Moses. {S}

לג וַיָּקֶם אֶת-הֶחָצֵר, סָבִיב לַמִּשְׁכָּן וְלַמִּזְבֵּחַ, וַיִּתֵּן, אֶת-מָסַךְ שַׁעַר הֶחָצֵר; וַיְכַל מֹשֶׁה, אֶת-הַמְּלָאכָה. {פ} 33

And he reared up the court round about the tabernacle and the altar, and set up the screen of the gate of the court. So Moses finished the work. {P}

לד וַיְכַס הֶעָנָן, אֶת-אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד; וּכְבוֹד יְהוָה, מָלֵא אֶת-הַמִּשְׁכָּן. 34

Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of jehovah filled the tabernacle.

לה וְלֹא-יָכֹל מֹשֶׁה, לָבוֹא אֶל-אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד–כִּי-שָׁכַן עָלָיו, הֶעָנָן; וּכְבוֹד יְהוָה, מָלֵא אֶת-הַמִּשְׁכָּן. 35

And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of meeting, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of jehovah filled the tabernacle.–

לו וּבְהֵעָלוֹת הֶעָנָן מֵעַל הַמִּשְׁכָּן, יִסְעוּ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, בְּכֹל, מַסְעֵיהֶם. 36

And whenever the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the sons of Israel went onward, throughout all their journeys.

לז וְאִם-לֹא יֵעָלֶה, הֶעָנָן–וְלֹא יִסְעוּ, עַד-יוֹם הֵעָלֹתוֹ. 37

But if the cloud was not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up.

לח כִּי עֲנַן יְהוָה עַל-הַמִּשְׁכָּן, יוֹמָם, וְאֵשׁ, תִּהְיֶה לַיְלָה בּוֹ–לְעֵינֵי כָל-בֵּית-יִשְׂרָאֵל, בְּכָל-מַסְעֵיהֶם. {ש} 38

For the cloud of jehovah was upon the tabernacle by day, and there was fire therein by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.– {P}


Leviticus וַיִּקְרָא Chapter 1

א וַיִּקְרָא, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה; וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה אֵלָיו, מֵאֹהֶל מוֹעֵד לֵאמֹר. 1

And jehovah called unto Moses, and spoke unto him out of the tent of meeting, saying:

ב דַּבֵּר אֶל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְאָמַרְתָּ אֲלֵהֶם, אָדָם כִּי-יַקְרִיב מִכֶּם קָרְבָּן, לַיהוָה–מִן-הַבְּהֵמָה, מִן-הַבָּקָר וּמִן-הַצֹּאן, תַּקְרִיבוּ, אֶת-קָרְבַּנְכֶם. 2

Speak unto the sons of Israel, and say unto them:

When any man of you bringeth an offering unto jehovah, ye shall bring your offering of the cattle, even of the herd or of the flock.

ג אִם-עֹלָה קָרְבָּנוֹ מִן-הַבָּקָר, זָכָר תָּמִים יַקְרִיבֶנּוּ; אֶל-פֶּתַח אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, יַקְרִיב אֹתוֹ, לִרְצֹנוֹ, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה. 3

If his offering be a burnt-offering of the herd, he shall offer it a male without blemish; he shall bring it to the door of the tent of meeting, that he may be accepted before jehovah.

ד וְסָמַךְ יָדוֹ, עַל רֹאשׁ הָעֹלָה; וְנִרְצָה לוֹ, לְכַפֵּר עָלָיו. 4

And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the burnt-offering; and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him.

ה וְשָׁחַט אֶת-בֶּן הַבָּקָר, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה; וְהִקְרִיבוּ בְּנֵי אַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֲנִים, אֶת-הַדָּם, וְזָרְקוּ אֶת-הַדָּם עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ סָבִיב, אֲשֶׁר-פֶּתַח אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד. 5

And he shall kill the bullock before jehovah; and Aaron’s sons, the priests, shall present the blood, and dash the blood round about against the altar that is at the door of the tent of meeting.

ו וְהִפְשִׁיט, אֶת-הָעֹלָה; וְנִתַּח אֹתָהּ, לִנְתָחֶיהָ. 6

And he shall flay the burnt-offering, and cut it into its pieces.

ז וְנָתְנוּ בְּנֵי אַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֵן, אֵשׁ–עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ; וְעָרְכוּ עֵצִים, עַל-הָאֵשׁ. 7

And the sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire upon the altar, and lay wood in order upon the fire.

ח וְעָרְכוּ, בְּנֵי אַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֲנִים, אֵת הַנְּתָחִים, אֶת-הָרֹאשׁ וְאֶת-הַפָּדֶר–עַל-הָעֵצִים אֲשֶׁר עַל-הָאֵשׁ, אֲשֶׁר עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ. 8 And Aaron’s sons, the priests, shall lay the pieces, and the head, and the suet, in order upon the wood that is on the fire which is upon the altar;

ט וְקִרְבּוֹ וּכְרָעָיו, יִרְחַץ בַּמָּיִם; וְהִקְטִיר הַכֹּהֵן אֶת-הַכֹּל הַמִּזְבֵּחָה, עֹלָה אִשֵּׁה רֵיחַ-נִיחוֹחַ לַיהוָה. {ס} 9

but its inwards and its legs shall he wash with water; and the priest shall make the whole smoke on the altar, for a burnt-offering, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto jehovah. {S}

י וְאִם-מִן-הַצֹּאן קָרְבָּנוֹ מִן-הַכְּשָׂבִים אוֹ מִן-הָעִזִּים, לְעֹלָה–זָכָר תָּמִים, יַקְרִיבֶנּוּ. 10

And if his offering be of the flock, whether of the sheep, or of the goats, for a burnt-offering, he shall offer it a male without blemish.

יא וְשָׁחַט אֹתוֹ עַל יֶרֶךְ הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, צָפֹנָה–לִפְנֵי יְהוָה; וְזָרְקוּ בְּנֵי אַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֲנִים אֶת-דָּמוֹ, עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ–סָבִיב. 11

And he shall kill it on the side of the altar northward before jehovah; and Aaron’s sons, the priests, shall dash its blood against the altar round about.

יב וְנִתַּח אֹתוֹ לִנְתָחָיו, וְאֶת-רֹאשׁוֹ וְאֶת-פִּדְרוֹ; וְעָרַךְ הַכֹּהֵן, אֹתָם, עַל-הָעֵצִים אֲשֶׁר עַל-הָאֵשׁ, אֲשֶׁר עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ. 12 And he shall cut it into its pieces; and the priest shall lay them, with its head and its suet, in order on the wood that is on the fire which is upon the altar.

יג וְהַקֶּרֶב וְהַכְּרָעַיִם, יִרְחַץ בַּמָּיִם; וְהִקְרִיב הַכֹּהֵן אֶת-הַכֹּל, וְהִקְטִיר הַמִּזְבֵּחָה–עֹלָה הוּא אִשֵּׁה רֵיחַ נִיחֹחַ, לַיהוָה. {פ} 13 But the inwards and the legs shall he wash with water; and the priest shall offer the whole, and make it smoke upon the altar; it is a burnt-offering, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto jehovah. {P}

יד וְאִם מִן-הָעוֹף עֹלָה קָרְבָּנוֹ, לַיהוָה: וְהִקְרִיב מִן-הַתֹּרִים, אוֹ מִן-בְּנֵי הַיּוֹנָה–אֶת-קָרְבָּנוֹ. 14

And if his offering to jehovah be a burnt-offering of fowls, then he shall bring his offering of turtle-doves, or of young pigeons.

טו וְהִקְרִיבוֹ הַכֹּהֵן, אֶל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, וּמָלַק אֶת-רֹאשׁוֹ, וְהִקְטִיר הַמִּזְבֵּחָה; וְנִמְצָה דָמוֹ, עַל קִיר הַמִּזְבֵּחַ. 15

And the priest shall bring it unto the altar, and pinch off its head, and make it smoke on the altar; and the blood thereof shall be drained out on the side of the altar.

טז וְהֵסִיר אֶת-מֻרְאָתוֹ, בְּנֹצָתָהּ; וְהִשְׁלִיךְ אֹתָהּ אֵצֶל הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, קֵדְמָה–אֶל-מְקוֹם, הַדָּשֶׁן. 16

And he shall take away its crop with the feathers thereof, and cast it beside the altar on the east part, in the place of the ashes.

יז וְשִׁסַּע אֹתוֹ בִכְנָפָיו, לֹא יַבְדִּיל, וְהִקְטִיר אֹתוֹ הַכֹּהֵן הַמִּזְבֵּחָה, עַל-הָעֵצִים אֲשֶׁר עַל-הָאֵשׁ: עֹלָה הוּא, אִשֵּׁה רֵיחַ נִיחֹחַ–לַיהוָה. {ס} 17

And he shall rend it by the wings thereof, but shall not divide it asunder; and the priest shall make it smoke upon the altar, upon the wood that is upon the fire; it is a burnt-offering, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto jehovah. {S}


Chapter 2

א וְנֶפֶשׁ, כִּי-תַקְרִיב קָרְבַּן מִנְחָה לַיהוָה–סֹלֶת, יִהְיֶה קָרְבָּנוֹ; וְיָצַק עָלֶיהָ שֶׁמֶן, וְנָתַן עָלֶיהָ לְבֹנָה. 1

And when any one bringeth a meal-offering unto jehovah, his offering shall be of fine flour; and he shall pour oil upon it, and put frankincense thereon.

ב וֶהֱבִיאָהּ, אֶל-בְּנֵי אַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֲנִים, וְקָמַץ מִשָּׁם מְלֹא קֻמְצוֹ מִסָּלְתָּהּ וּמִשַּׁמְנָהּ, עַל כָּל-לְבֹנָתָהּ; וְהִקְטִיר הַכֹּהֵן אֶת-אַזְכָּרָתָהּ, הַמִּזְבֵּחָה–אִשֵּׁה רֵיחַ נִיחֹחַ, לַיהוָה. 2

And he shall bring it to Aaron’s sons the priests; and he shall take thereout his handful of the fine flour thereof, and of the oil thereof, together with all the frankincense thereof; and the priest shall make the memorial-part thereof smoke upon the altar, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto jehovah.

ג וְהַנּוֹתֶרֶת, מִן-הַמִּנְחָה–לְאַהֲרֹן, וּלְבָנָיו: קֹדֶשׁ קָדָשִׁים, מֵאִשֵּׁי יְהוָה. {ס} 3

But that which is left of the meal-offering shall be Aaron’s and his sons’; it is a thing most holy of the offerings of jehovah made by fire. {S}

ד וְכִי תַקְרִב קָרְבַּן מִנְחָה, מַאֲפֵה תַנּוּר–סֹלֶת חַלּוֹת מַצֹּת בְּלוּלֹת בַּשֶּׁמֶן, וּרְקִיקֵי מַצּוֹת מְשֻׁחִים בַּשָּׁמֶן. {ס} 4

And when thou bringest a meal-offering baked in the oven, it shall be unleavened cakes of fine flour mingled with oil, or unleavened wafers spread with oil. {S}

ה וְאִם-מִנְחָה עַל-הַמַּחֲבַת, קָרְבָּנֶךָ–סֹלֶת בְּלוּלָה בַשֶּׁמֶן, מַצָּה תִהְיֶה. 5

And if thy offering be a meal-offering baked on a griddle, it shall be of fine flour unleavened, mingled with oil.

ו פָּתוֹת אֹתָהּ פִּתִּים, וְיָצַקְתָּ עָלֶיהָ שָׁמֶן; מִנְחָה, הִוא. {ס} 6

Thou shalt break it in pieces, and pour oil thereon; it is a meal-offering. {S}

ז וְאִם-מִנְחַת מַרְחֶשֶׁת, קָרְבָּנֶךָ–סֹלֶת בַּשֶּׁמֶן, תֵּעָשֶׂה. 7

And if thy offering be a meal-offering of the stewing-pan, it shall be made of fine flour with oil.

ח וְהֵבֵאתָ אֶת-הַמִּנְחָה, אֲשֶׁר יֵעָשֶׂה מֵאֵלֶּה–לַיהוָה; וְהִקְרִיבָהּ, אֶל-הַכֹּהֵן, וְהִגִּישָׁהּ, אֶל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ. 8

And thou shalt bring the meal-offering that is made of these things unto jehovah; and it shall be presented unto the priest, and he shall bring it unto the altar.

ט וְהֵרִים הַכֹּהֵן מִן-הַמִּנְחָה אֶת-אַזְכָּרָתָהּ, וְהִקְטִיר הַמִּזְבֵּחָה–אִשֵּׁה רֵיחַ נִיחֹחַ, לַיהוָה. 9

And the priest shall take off from the meal-offering the memorial-part thereof, and shall make it smoke upon the altar–

an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto jehovah.

י וְהַנּוֹתֶרֶת, מִן-הַמִּנְחָה–לְאַהֲרֹן, וּלְבָנָיו: קֹדֶשׁ קָדָשִׁים, מֵאִשֵּׁי יְהוָה. 10

But that which is left of the meal-offering shall be Aaron’s and his sons’; it is a thing most holy of the offerings of jehovah made by fire.

יא כָּל-הַמִּנְחָה, אֲשֶׁר תַּקְרִיבוּ לַיהוָה–לֹא תֵעָשֶׂה, חָמֵץ: כִּי כָל-שְׂאֹר וְכָל-דְּבַשׁ, לֹא-תַקְטִירוּ מִמֶּנּוּ אִשֶּׁה לַיהוָה. 11 No meal-offering, which ye shall bring unto jehovah, shall be made with leaven; for ye shall make no leaven, nor any honey, smoke as an offering made by fire unto jehovah.

יב קָרְבַּן רֵאשִׁית תַּקְרִיבוּ אֹתָם, לַיהוָה; וְאֶל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ לֹא-יַעֲלוּ, לְרֵיחַ נִיחֹחַ. 12

As an offering of first-fruits ye may bring them unto jehovah; but they shall not come up for a sweet savour on the altar.

יג וְכָל-קָרְבַּן מִנְחָתְךָ, בַּמֶּלַח תִּמְלָח, וְלֹא תַשְׁבִּית מֶלַח בְּרִית אֱלֹהֶיךָ, מֵעַל מִנְחָתֶךָ; עַל כָּל-קָרְבָּנְךָ, תַּקְרִיב מֶלַח. {ס} 13 And every meal-offering of thine shalt thou season with salt; neither shalt thou suffer the salt of the covenant of thy God to be lacking from thy meal-offering; with all thy offerings thou shalt offer salt. {S}

יד וְאִם-תַּקְרִיב מִנְחַת בִּכּוּרִים, לַיהוָה–אָבִיב קָלוּי בָּאֵשׁ, גֶּרֶשׂ כַּרְמֶל, תַּקְרִיב, אֵת מִנְחַת בִּכּוּרֶיךָ. 14

And if thou bring a meal-offering of first-fruits unto jehovah, thou shalt bring for the meal-offering of thy first-fruits corn in the ear parched with fire, even groats of the fresh ear.

טו וְנָתַתָּ עָלֶיהָ שֶׁמֶן, וְשַׂמְתָּ עָלֶיהָ לְבֹנָה; מִנְחָה, הִוא. 15

And thou shalt put oil upon it, and lay frankincense thereon; it is a meal-offering.

טז וְהִקְטִיר הַכֹּהֵן אֶת-אַזְכָּרָתָהּ, מִגִּרְשָׂהּ וּמִשַּׁמְנָהּ, עַל, כָּל-לְבֹנָתָהּ–אִשֶּׁה, לַיהוָה. {פ} 16

And the priest shall make the memorial-part of it smoke, even of the groats thereof, and of the oil thereof, with all the frankincense thereof; it is an offering made by fire unto jehovah. {P}

Chapter 3

א וְאִם-זֶבַח שְׁלָמִים, קָרְבָּנוֹ–אִם מִן-הַבָּקָר, הוּא מַקְרִיב, אִם-זָכָר אִם-נְקֵבָה, תָּמִים יַקְרִיבֶנּוּ לִפְנֵי יְהוָה. 1

And if his offering be a sacrifice of peace-offerings:

if he offer of the herd, whether male or female, he shall offer it without blemish before jehovah.

ב וְסָמַךְ יָדוֹ, עַל-רֹאשׁ קָרְבָּנוֹ, וּשְׁחָטוֹ, פֶּתַח אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד; וְזָרְקוּ בְּנֵי אַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֲנִים אֶת-הַדָּם, עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ–סָבִיב. 2 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of his offering, and kill it at the door of the tent of meeting; and Aaron’s sons the priests shall dash the blood against the altar round about.

ג וְהִקְרִיב מִזֶּבַח הַשְּׁלָמִים, אִשֶּׁה לַיהוָה–אֶת-הַחֵלֶב, הַמְכַסֶּה אֶת-הַקֶּרֶב, וְאֵת כָּל-הַחֵלֶב, אֲשֶׁר עַל-הַקֶּרֶב. 3

And he shall present of the sacrifice of peace-offerings an offering made by fire unto jehovah:

the fat that covereth the inwards, and all the fat that is upon the inwards,

ד וְאֵת, שְׁתֵּי הַכְּלָיֹת, וְאֶת-הַחֵלֶב אֲשֶׁר עֲלֵהֶן, אֲשֶׁר עַל-הַכְּסָלִים; וְאֶת-הַיֹּתֶרֶת, עַל-הַכָּבֵד, עַל-הַכְּלָיוֹת, יְסִירֶנָּה. 4 and the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the loins, and the lobe above the liver, which he shall take away hard by the kidneys.

ה וְהִקְטִירוּ אֹתוֹ בְנֵי-אַהֲרֹן, הַמִּזְבֵּחָה, עַל-הָעֹלָה, אֲשֶׁר עַל-הָעֵצִים אֲשֶׁר עַל-הָאֵשׁ–אִשֵּׁה רֵיחַ נִיחֹחַ, לַיהוָה. {פ} 5 And Aaron’s sons shall make it smoke on the altar upon the burnt-offering, which is upon the wood that is on the fire; it is an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto jehovah. {P}

ו וְאִם-מִן-הַצֹּאן קָרְבָּנוֹ לְזֶבַח שְׁלָמִים, לַיהוָה–זָכָר אוֹ נְקֵבָה, תָּמִים יַקְרִיבֶנּוּ. 6

And if his offering for a sacrifice of peace-offerings unto jehovah be of the flock, male or female, he shall offer it without blemish.

ז אִם-כֶּשֶׂב הוּא-מַקְרִיב, אֶת-קָרְבָּנוֹ–וְהִקְרִיב אֹתוֹ, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה. 7

If he bring a lamb for his offering, then shall he present it before jehovah.

ח וְסָמַךְ אֶת-יָדוֹ, עַל-רֹאשׁ קָרְבָּנוֹ, וְשָׁחַט אֹתוֹ, לִפְנֵי אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד; וְזָרְקוּ בְּנֵי אַהֲרֹן אֶת-דָּמוֹ, עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ–סָבִיב. 8

And he shall lay his hand upon the head of his offering, and kill it before the tent of meeting; and Aaron’s sons shall dash the blood thereof against the altar round about.

ט וְהִקְרִיב מִזֶּבַח הַשְּׁלָמִים, אִשֶּׁה לַיהוָה–חֶלְבּוֹ הָאַלְיָה תְמִימָה, לְעֻמַּת הֶעָצֶה יְסִירֶנָּה; וְאֶת-הַחֵלֶב, הַמְכַסֶּה אֶת-הַקֶּרֶב, וְאֵת כָּל-הַחֵלֶב, אֲשֶׁר עַל-הַקֶּרֶב. 9

And he shall present of the sacrifice of peace-offerings an offering made by fire unto jehovah:

the fat thereof, the fat tail entire, which he shall take away hard by the rump-bone; and the fat that covereth the inwards, and all the fat that is upon the inwards,

י וְאֵת, שְׁתֵּי הַכְּלָיֹת, וְאֶת-הַחֵלֶב אֲשֶׁר עֲלֵהֶן, אֲשֶׁר עַל-הַכְּסָלִים; וְאֶת-הַיֹּתֶרֶת, עַל-הַכָּבֵד, עַל-הַכְּלָיֹת, יְסִירֶנָּה. 10 and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, which is by the loins, and the lobe above the liver, which he shall take away by the kidneys.

יא וְהִקְטִירוֹ הַכֹּהֵן, הַמִּזְבֵּחָה–לֶחֶם אִשֶּׁה, לַיהוָה. {פ} 11

And the priest shall make it smoke upon the altar; it is the food of the offering made by fire unto jehovah. {P}

יב וְאִם עֵז, קָרְבָּנוֹ–וְהִקְרִיבוֹ, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה. 12

And if his offering be a goat, then he shall present it before jehovah.

יג וְסָמַךְ אֶת-יָדוֹ, עַל-רֹאשׁוֹ, וְשָׁחַט אֹתוֹ, לִפְנֵי אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד; וְזָרְקוּ בְּנֵי אַהֲרֹן אֶת-דָּמוֹ, עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ–סָבִיב. 13

And he shall lay his hand upon the head of it, and kill it before the tent of meeting; and the sons of Aaron shall dash the blood thereof against the altar round about.

יד וְהִקְרִיב מִמֶּנּוּ קָרְבָּנוֹ, אִשֶּׁה לַיהוָה–אֶת-הַחֵלֶב, הַמְכַסֶּה אֶת-הַקֶּרֶב, וְאֵת כָּל-הַחֵלֶב, אֲשֶׁר עַל-הַקֶּרֶב. 14

And he shall present thereof his offering, even an offering made by fire unto jehovah:

the fat that covereth the inwards, and all the fat that is upon the inwards,

טו וְאֵת, שְׁתֵּי הַכְּלָיֹת, וְאֶת-הַחֵלֶב אֲשֶׁר עֲלֵהֶן, אֲשֶׁר עַל-הַכְּסָלִים; וְאֶת-הַיֹּתֶרֶת, עַל-הַכָּבֵד, עַל-הַכְּלָיֹת, יְסִירֶנָּה. 15 and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, which is by the loins, and the lobe above the liver, which he shall take away by the kidneys.

טז וְהִקְטִירָם הַכֹּהֵן, הַמִּזְבֵּחָה–לֶחֶם אִשֶּׁה לְרֵיחַ נִיחֹחַ, כָּל-חֵלֶב לַיהוָה. 16

And the priest shall make them smoke upon the altar; it is the food of the offering made by fire, for a sweet savour; all the fat is jehovah’s.

יז חֻקַּת עוֹלָם לְדֹרֹתֵיכֶם, בְּכֹל מוֹשְׁבֹתֵיכֶם–כָּל-חֵלֶב וְכָל-דָּם, לֹא תֹאכֵלוּ. {פ} 17

It shall be a perpetual statute throughout your generations in all your dwellings, that ye shall eat neither fat nor blood. {P}
