1 The Lord said to Moses: 2 Tell the children of Israel to bring Me an offering. From every man who gives willingly with his heart you shall receive My offering. 3 This is the offering which you shall take from them: gold, silver, and bronze, 4 blue, purple, scarlet, fine linen, goats’ hair, 5 rams’ skins dyed red, porpoise skins, acacia wood, 6 oil for the light, spices for anointing oil and for fragrant incense, 7 onyx stones, and stones to be set in the ephod and in the breastplate.
8 Let them make Me a sanctuary that I may dwell among them. 9 According to all that I show you—the pattern of the tabernacle and the pattern of all its furniture—you shall make it just so.
10 They shall make an ark of acacia wood two and a half cubits long, and one and a half cubits wide, and one and a half cubits high. 11 You shall overlay it with pure gold, inside and out shall you overlay it, and you shall make a gold border around it. 12 You shall cast four gold rings for it and put them on the four feet with two rings on the one side of it and two rings on the other side of it. 13 You shall make poles of acacia wood and overlay them with gold. 14 You shall put the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark in order to carry the ark with them. 15 The poles must remain in the rings of the ark. They must not be removed from it. 16 You shall put into the ark the testimony which I shall give you.
17 You shall make a mercy seat of pure gold, two and a half cubits long and one and a half cubits wide. 18 You shall make two cherubim of gold, make them of hammered work at the two ends of the mercy seat. 19 Make one cherub on the one end and the other cherub on the other end. From the mercy seat you shall make the cherubim on its two ends. 20 The cherubim shall stretch forth their wings upward, covering the mercy seat with their wings and facing one another. The faces of the cherubim are to face toward the mercy seat. 21 You shall put the mercy seat above upon the ark, and in the ark you shall put the testimony that I will give you. 22 I will meet with you there, and I will meet with you from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are upon the ark of the testimony. I will speak with you all that I will command you for the children of Israel.
23 You shall also make a table of acacia wood, two cubits long, one cubit wide, and a half cubit high. 24 You shall overlay it with pure gold and make a gold border around it. 25 You shall make a border around it of a handbreadth, and you shall make a gold molding for the frame all around. 26 You shall make four gold rings for it and put the rings on the four corners that are on its four feet. 27 The rings shall be close to the frame to provide places for the poles to carry the table. 28 You shall make the poles of acacia wood and overlay them with gold, so that the table may be carried with them. 29 You shall make the dishes, its spoons, its pitchers, and its bowls with which to pour drink offerings. You shall make them of pure gold. 30 You shall set the showbread on the table before Me always.
31 You shall make a lampstand of pure gold. The lampstand and its base and its shaft are to be made of hammered metal. Its cups, its buds, and its flowers shall be of one piece. 32 Six branches shall go out from its sides, three branches of the lampstand from its one side and three branches of the lampstand from its other side. 33 Three cups shall be made shaped like almond flowers with buds and blossoms on one branch, and three cups made like almond flowers in the other branch, with buds and blossoms, and the same for the six branches that come out of the lampstand. 34 On the lampstand shall be four cups shaped like almond flowers, with their buds and their blossoms. 35 There shall be a bud under two branches of the same, and a bud under two branches of the same, and a bud under the next two branches of the same, according to the six branches that proceed out of the lampstand. 36 Their buds and their branches shall be of the same piece, all of it shall be one hammered work of pure gold.
37 You shall make its seven lamps, and they shall light its lamps so that they may give light to the area in front of it. 38 Its snuffers and their snuff dishes shall be of pure gold. 39 It shall be made from a talent of pure gold along with all these utensils. 40 See that you make them according to their pattern which was shown to you on the mountain.
1 Moreover you shall make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twisted linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet. Make them with cherubim, the work of a skilled workman. 2 The length of each curtain shall be twenty-eight cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits. All of the curtains shall have the same measurements. 3 Five curtains shall be joined together, one to another. And the other five curtains are to be joined, one to another. 4 You shall make loops of blue on the edge of the end curtain in one set, and likewise you shall make loops in the outermost edge of the end curtain in the second set. 5 You shall make fifty loops in the one curtain, and you shall make fifty loops in the edge of the curtain that is in the second set. The loops are to be opposite to one another. 6 You shall make fifty clasps of gold and join the curtains together with the clasps so that the tabernacle shall be one unit.
7 You shall make curtains of goats’ hair to be a covering upon the tabernacle. You shall make eleven curtains. 8 The length of each curtain shall be thirty cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits, and the eleven curtains shall all have the same measure. 9 You shall join five curtains by themselves, and six curtains by themselves. You shall double over the sixth curtain at the front of the tabernacle. 10 You shall make fifty loops on the edge of the end curtain in one set and fifty loops on the edge of the curtain that joins the second set. 11 You shall make fifty bronze clasps, and put the clasps into the loops, and join the tent together so that it may be one unit. 12 The part that remains of the curtains of the tent, the half curtain that remains, shall hang over the back of the tabernacle. 13 A cubit on the one side and a cubit on the other side of that which remains in the length of the curtains of the tent shall hang over the sides of the tabernacle on this side and on that side to cover it. 14 You shall make a covering for the tent out of rams’ skins dyed red and a covering above of porpoise skins.
15 You shall make boards for the tabernacle of acacia wood, standing upright. 16 Ten cubits shall be the length of each board, and a cubit and a half shall be the width of each board. 17 There shall be two tenons for each board, fitted to one another. You shall make all the boards of the tabernacle in this way. 18 You shall make the boards for the tabernacle, twenty boards for the south side. 19 You shall make 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. 20 For the second side of the tabernacle, on the north side, there shall be twenty boards, 21 and their forty sockets of silver, two sockets under one board, and two sockets under another board. 22 For the back of the tabernacle, to the west, you shall make six boards. 23 You shall make two boards for the corners of the tabernacle at the back. 24 They shall be doubled together beneath and finished together at the top of it into one ring. So it shall be for both of them. They shall form the two corners. 25 There shall be eight boards with their sockets of silver, sixteen sockets, two sockets under one board and two sockets under another board.
26 You shall make bars of acacia wood, five for the boards of the one side of the tabernacle, 27 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 back to the west. 28 The middle bar in the center of the boards shall reach from end to end. 29 You shall overlay the boards with gold and make their rings of gold to provide places for the bars, and you shall overlay the bars with gold.
30 You shall set up the tabernacle according to the plan which you have been shown on the mountain.
31 You shall make a veil of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen. It shall be made with cherubim, the skillful work of a workman. 32 You shall hang it on four pillars of acacia wood overlaid with gold. Their hooks also shall be of gold on four sockets of silver. 33 You shall hang up the veil under the clasps, so that you may bring in the ark of the testimony within the veil; and the veil shall serve for you as a partition between the holy place and the Most Holy. 34 You shall put the mercy seat on the ark of the testimony in the Most Holy. 35 You shall set the table outside the veil, and the lampstand opposite the table on the side of the tabernacle toward the south, and you shall put the table on the north side.
36 You shall make a screen for the doorway of the tent of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, the work of an embroiderer. 37 You shall make five pillars of acacia wood for the screen and overlay them with gold, with their hooks also made of gold, and you shall cast five sockets of bronze for them.
17 As Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, He took the twelve disciples aside on the road and said to them, 18 “Now we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and scribes. And they will condemn Him to death 19 and deliver Him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify Him, but on the third day He will rise.”
20 Then the mother of Zebedee’s sons came to Him with her sons. And kneeling before Him, she asked for a certain thing.
21 He said to her, “What do you want?”
She said to Him, “Grant that these two sons of mine may sit, one at Your right hand and one at Your left, in Your kingdom.”
22 But Jesus answered, “You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink from the cup that I am to drink, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?”
They said to Him, “We are able.”
23 He said to them, “You will indeed drink from My cup and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with. But to sit at My right hand and at My left is not Mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it is prepared by My Father.”
24 When the ten heard it, they were moved with indignation against the two brothers. 25 But Jesus called them to Him and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those who are great exercise authority over them. 26 It shall not be so among you. Whoever would be great among you, let him serve you, 27 and whoever would be first among you, let him be your slave, 28 even as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for many.”
29 As they departed from Jericho, a large crowd followed Him. 30 There, two blind men sitting by the road, when they heard that Jesus was passing by, cried out, “Have mercy on us, O Lord, Son of David!”
31 The crowd rebuked them, that they should be silent. But they cried out even more, “Have mercy on us, O Lord, Son of David!”
32 Jesus stood still and called them, saying, “What do you want Me to do for you?”
33 They said to Him, “Lord, let our eyes be opened.”
34 So Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed Him.
