work of sapphire stone, and as it were 11 the Ivery' heaven 'for clearness. °And

upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand : land! they

'beheld! 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 Ithel tables of stone, and the law and Ithe

commandment, which I have written, 13) that thou mayest teach them. 'And

Moses rose up, and Joshua his min

ister: and Moses went up into the 14 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 : 'whoso

ever hath cause', let him come 'near 15 unto them. 'And Moses went up into

the mount, and ithel cloud covered the 16 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 17 of the midst of the cloud. And the

appearance of the glory of the LORD was like devouring fire on the top of

the mount in the eyes of the children 18 of Israel. And Moses lentered into

the midst of the cloud, and Twent up into the mount: and Moses was in the

mount forty days and forty nights. 251 And the LORD spake unto Moses, 2 saying, °Speak unto the children of

Israel, that they take for me an ?offering: of every man 'whosel heart

Imaketh him willing' ye shall take my 3 offering. And this is the 2offering which

ye shall take of them; gold, and 4 silver, and brass; "and blue, and pur

and sealskins', and 'acacial wood; 6 °oil for the light, spices for 'thel

anointing oil, and for the sweet in7 cense; bonyx stones, and stones to

and a cubit and a half the height 11 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 about. 12 °And thou shalt cast four rings of

gold for it, and put them in the four ifeet' thereof; and two rings shall be

the testimony that I shall give thee. 22 °And there I will meet with thee, and
