6 He also made the mercy seat of pure gold; two and a half cubits was its length and a
cubit and a half its width.
7 He made two cherubim of hammered gold; he made them at the two ends of the mercy
8 one cherub at one end on this side, and the other cherub at the other end on that side.
He made the cherubim at the two ends of one piece with the mercy seat.
9 The cherubim spread out their wings above, and covered the mercy seat with their
wings. They faced one another; the faces of the cherubim were toward the mercy seat.

rim all around it.

bowls, and its pitchers for pouring.

Its shaft, its branches, its bowls, its bulbs, and its flowers were one piece.
18 And six branches came out of its sides: three branches of the lampstand out of one
side, and three branches of the lampstand out of the other side.
19 There were three bowls made like almond blossoms on one branch, with a bulb and a
flower, and three bowls made like almond blossoms on the other branch, with a bulb and a
flower; and thus for the six branches coming out of the lampstand.
20 And on the lampstand itself were four bowls made like almond blossoms, each with its
bulb and flower.
21 There was a bulb under the first two branches of it, a bulb under the second two
branches of it, and a bulb under the third two branches of it, according to the six branches
