    Exodus chapter 24
    1] And he said unto Moses, Come up unto the LORD, thou, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel; and worship ye afar off.

    [2] And Moses alone shall come near the LORD: but they shall not come nigh; neither shall the people go up with him.

    [3] And Moses came and told the people all the words of the LORD, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and said, All the words which the LORD hath said will we do.

    [4] And Moses wrote all the words of the LORD, and rose up early in the morning, and builded an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel.

    [5] And he sent young men of the children of Israel, which offered burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen unto the LORD.

    [6] And Moses took half of the blood, and put it in basons; and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar.

    [7] And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the LORD hath said will we do, and be obedient.

    [8] And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which the LORD hath made with you concerning all these words.

    [9] Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel:

    [10] And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness.

    [11] And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also they saw 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 tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.

    [13] And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua: and Moses went up into the mount of God.

    [14] 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: if any man have any matters to do, let him come unto them.

    [15] And Moses went up into the mount, and a cloud covered the mount.

    [16] 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 of the midst of the cloud.

    [17] And the sight of the glory of the LORD was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.

    [18] And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights.

    Exodus chapter 25.
    [1] And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

    [2] Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring me an offering: of every man that giveth it willingly with his heart ye shall take my offering.

    [3] And this is the offering which ye shall take of them; gold, and silver, and brass,

    [4] And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair,

    [5] And rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittim wood,

    [6] Oil for the light, spices for anointing oil, and for sweet incense,

    [7] Onyx stones, and stones to be set in the ephod, and in the breastplate.

    [8] And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.

    [9] According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it.

    [10] And they shall make an ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.

    [11] 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 corners thereof; and two rings shall be in the one side of it, and two rings in the other side of it.

    [13] And thou shalt make staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold.

    [14] And thou shalt put the staves into the rings by the sides of the ark, that the ark may be borne with them.

    [15] The staves shall be in the rings of the ark: they shall not be taken from it.

    [16] And thou shalt put into the ark the testimony which I shall give thee.

    [17] And thou shalt make a mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof.

    [18] And thou shalt make two cherubims of gold, of beaten work shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the mercy seat.

    [19] And make one cherub on the one end, and the other cherub on the other end: even of the mercy seat shall ye make the cherubims on the two ends thereof.

    [20] And the cherubims shall stretch forth their wings on high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces shall look one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubims be.

    [21] And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee.

    [22] And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.

    [23] Thou shalt also make a table of shittim wood: two cubits shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.

    [24] And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, and make thereto a crown of gold round about.

    [25] And thou shalt make unto it a border of an hand breadth round about, and thou shalt make a golden crown to the border thereof round about.

    [26] And thou shalt make for it four rings of gold, and put the rings in the four corners that are on the four feet thereof.

    [27] Over against the border shall the rings be for places of the staves to bear the table.

    [28] And thou shalt make the staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold, that the table may be borne with them.

    [29] And thou shalt make the dishes thereof, and spoons thereof, and covers thereof, and bowls thereof, to cover withal: of pure gold shalt thou make them.

    [30] And thou shalt set upon the table shewbread before me alway.

    [31] And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work shall the candlestick be made: his shaft, and his branches, his bowls, his knops, and his flowers, shall be of the same.

    [32] And six branches shall come out of the sides of it; three branches of the candlestick out of the one side, and three branches of the candlestick out of the other side:

    [33] Three bowls made like unto almonds, with a knop and a flower in one branch; and three bowls made like almonds in the other branch, with a knop and a flower: so in the six branches that come out of the candlestick.

    [34] And in the candlestick shall be four bowls made like unto almonds, with their knops and their flowers.

    [35] And there shall be a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same, according to the six branches that proceed out of the candlestick.

    [36] Their knops and their branches shall be of the same: all it shall be one beaten work of pure gold.

    [37] And thou shalt make the seven lamps thereof: and they shall light the lamps thereof, that they may give light over against it.

    [38] And the tongs thereof, and the snuffdishes thereof, shall be of pure gold.

    [39] Of a talent of pure gold shall he make it, with all these vessels.

    [40] And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was shewed thee in the mount.

    [1] And take thou unto thee Aaron thy brother, and his sons with him, from among the children of Israel, that he may minister unto me in the priest's office, even Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron's sons.

    [2] And thou shalt make holy garments for Aaron thy brother for glory and for beauty.

    [3] And thou shalt speak unto all that are wise hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they may make Aaron's garments to consecrate him, that he may minister unto me in the priest's office.

    [4] And these are the garments which they shall make; a breastplate, and an ephod, and a robe, and a broidered coat, a mitre, and a girdle: and they shall make holy garments for Aaron thy brother, and his sons, that he may minister unto me in the priest's office.

    [5] And they shall take gold, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen.

    [6] And they shall make the ephod of gold, of blue, and of purple, of scarlet, and fine twined linen, with cunning work.

    [7] It shall have the two shoulderpieces thereof joined at the two edges thereof; and so it shall be joined together.

    [8] And the curious girdle of the ephod, which is upon it, shall be of the same, according to the work thereof; even of gold, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.

    [9] And thou shalt take two onyx stones, and grave on them the names of the children of Israel:

    [10] Six of their names on one stone, and the other six names of the rest on the other stone, according to their birth.

    [11] With the work of an engraver in stone, like the engravings of a signet, shalt thou engrave the two stones with the names of the children of Israel: thou shalt make them to be set in ouches of gold.

    [12] And thou shalt put the two stones upon the shoulders of the ephod for stones of memorial unto the children of Israel: and Aaron shall bear their names before the LORD upon his two shoulders for a memorial.

    [13] And thou shalt make ouches of gold;

    [14] And two chains of pure gold at the ends; of wreathen work shalt thou make them, and fasten the wreathen chains to the ouches.

    [15] And thou shalt make the breastplate of judgment with cunning work; after the work of the ephod thou shalt make it; of gold, of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine twined linen, shalt thou make it.

    [16] Foursquare it shall be being doubled; a span shall be the length thereof, and a span shall be the breadth thereof.

    [17] And thou shalt set in it settings of stones, even four rows of stones: the first row shall be a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle: this shall be the first row.

    [18] And the second row shall be an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond.

    [19] And the third row a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst.

    [20] And the fourth row a beryl, and an onyx, and a jasper: they shall be set in gold in their inclosings.

    [21] And the stones shall be with the names of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet; every one with his name shall they be according to the twelve tribes.

    [22] And thou shalt make upon the breastplate chains at the ends of wreathen work of pure gold.

    [23] And thou shalt make upon the breastplate two rings of gold, and shalt put the two rings on the two ends of the breastplate.

    [24] And thou shalt put the two wreathen chains of gold in the two rings which are on the ends of the breastplate.

    [25] And the other two ends of the two wreathen chains thou shalt fasten in the two ouches, and put them on the shoulderpieces of the ephod before it.

    [26] And thou shalt make two rings of gold, and thou shalt put them upon the two ends of the breastplate in the border thereof, which is in the side of the ephod inward.

    [27] And two other rings of gold thou shalt make, and shalt put them on the two sides of the ephod underneath, toward the forepart thereof, over against the other coupling thereof, above the curious girdle of the ephod.

    [28] And they shall bind the breastplate by the rings thereof unto the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it may be above the curious girdle of the ephod, and that the breastplate be not loosed from the ephod.

    [29] And Aaron shall bear the names of the children of Israel in the breastplate of judgment upon his heart, when he goeth in unto the holy place, for a memorial before the LORD continually.

    [30] And thou shalt put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim and the Thummim; and they shall be upon Aaron's heart, when he goeth in before the LORD: and Aaron shall bear the judgment of the children of Israel upon his heart before the LORD continually.

    [31] And thou shalt make the robe of the ephod all of blue.

    [32] And there shall be an hole in the top of it, in the midst thereof: it shall have a binding of woven work round about the hole of it, as it were the hole of an habergeon, that it be not rent.

    [33] And beneath upon the hem of it thou shalt make pomegranates of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, round about the hem thereof; and bells of gold between them round about:

    [34] A golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a pomegranate, upon the hem of the robe round about.

    [35] And it shall be upon Aaron to minister: and his sound shall be heard when he goeth in unto the holy place before the LORD, and when he cometh out, that he die not.

    [36] And thou shalt make a plate of pure gold, and grave upon it, like the engravings of a signet, HOLINESS TO THE LORD.

    [37] And thou shalt put it on a blue lace, that it may be upon the mitre; upon the forefront of the mitre it shall be.

    [38] And it shall be upon Aaron's forehead, that Aaron may bear the iniquity of the holy things, which the children of Israel shall hallow in all their holy gifts; and it shall be always upon his forehead, that they may be accepted before the LORD.

    [39] And thou shalt embroider the coat of fine linen, and thou shalt make the mitre of fine linen, and thou shalt make the girdle of needlework.

    [40] And for Aaron's sons thou shalt make coats, and thou shalt make for them girdles, and bonnets shalt thou make for them, for glory and for beauty.

    [41] And thou shalt put them upon Aaron thy brother, and his sons with him; and shalt anoint them, and consecrate them, and sanctify them, that they may minister unto me in the priest's office.

    [42] And thou shalt make them linen breeches to cover their nakedness; from the loins even unto the thighs they shall reach:

    [43] And they shall be upon Aaron, and upon his sons, when they come in unto the tabernacle of the congregation, or when they come near unto the altar to minister in the holy place; that they bear not iniquity, and die: it shall be a statute for ever unto him and his seed after him.

    Exodus chapter 28 question. In another book of the Bible these exact stones that you see in the ephod are mentioned in another place that symbolize another thing and is also similar to the ephod and the priestly robe! Can somebody tell me the Bible book? tmp-cam-1021411757.jpg

    Before I move on with the next Bible chapter I have a question and I would like some of y'all opinion. As you know Jehovah's witnesses require a test in order to be baptized I personally cannot go with that number! neither Jesus nor his apostles required any kind of a test only the willingness to show that they were repentant of sin enough to be baptized.

    So who thinks it's wrong to require a test in order to be baptized besides me?

    Exodus chapter 30 tmp-cam-2474971599831418091.jpg [1] And thou shalt make an altar to burn incense upon: of shittim wood shalt thou make it.

    [2] A cubit shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof; foursquare shall it be: and two cubits shall be the height thereof: the horns thereof shall be of the same.

    [3] And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, the top thereof, and the sides thereof round about, and the horns thereof; and thou shalt make unto it a crown of gold round about.

    [4] And two golden rings shalt thou make to it under the crown of it, by the two corners thereof, upon the two sides of it shalt thou make it; and they shall be for places for the staves to bear it withal.

    [5] And thou shalt make the staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold.

    [6] And thou shalt put it before the vail that is by the ark of the testimony, before the mercy seat that is over the testimony, where I will meet with thee.

    [7] And Aaron shall burn thereon sweet incense every morning: when he dresseth the lamps, he shall burn incense upon it.

    [8] And when Aaron lighteth the lamps at even, he shall burn incense upon it, a perpetual incense before the LORD throughout your generations.

    [9] Ye shall offer no strange incense thereon, nor burnt sacrifice, nor meat offering; neither shall ye pour drink offering thereon.

    [10] And Aaron shall make an atonement upon the horns of it once in a year with the blood of the sin offering of atonements: once in the year shall he make atonement upon it throughout your generations: it is most holy unto the LORD.

    [11] And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

    [12] When thou takest the sum of the children of Israel after their number, then shall they give every man a ransom for his soul unto the LORD, when thou numberest them; that there be no plague among them, when thou numberest them.

    [13] This they shall give, every one that passeth among them that are numbered, half a shekel after the shekel of the sanctuary: (a shekel is twenty gerahs:) an half shekel shall be the offering of the LORD.

    [14] Every one that passeth among them that are numbered, from twenty years old and above, shall give an offering unto the LORD.

    [15] The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less than half a shekel, when they give an offering unto the LORD, to make an atonement for your souls.

    [16] And thou shalt take the atonement money of the children of Israel, and shalt appoint it for the service of the tabernacle of the congregation; that it may be a memorial unto the children of Israel before the LORD, to make an atonement for your souls.

    [17] And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

    [18] Thou shalt also make a laver of brass, and his foot also of brass, to wash withal: and thou shalt put it between the tabernacle of the congregation and the altar, and thou shalt put water therein.

    [19] For Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet thereat:

    [20] When they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they shall wash with water, that they die not; or when they come near to the altar to minister, to burn offering made by fire unto the LORD:

    [21] So they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they die not: and it shall be a statute for ever to them, even to him and to his seed throughout their generations.

    [22] Moreover the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

    [23] Take thou also unto thee principal spices, of pure myrrh five hundred shekels, and of sweet cinnamon half so much, even two hundred and fifty shekels, and of sweet calamus two hundred and fifty shekels,

    [24] And of cassia five hundred shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary, and of oil olive an hin:

    [25] And thou shalt make it an oil of holy ointment, an ointment compound after the art of the apothecary: it shall be an holy anointing oil.

    [26] And thou shalt anoint the tabernacle of the congregation therewith, and the ark of the testimony,

    [27] And the table and all his vessels, and the candlestick and his vessels, and the altar of incense,

    [28] And the altar of burnt offering with all his vessels, and the laver and his foot.

    [29] And thou shalt sanctify them, that they may be most holy: whatsoever toucheth them shall be holy.

    [30] And thou shalt anoint Aaron and his sons, and consecrate them, that they may minister unto me in the priest's office.

    [31] And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, This shall be an holy anointing oil unto me throughout your generations.

    [32] Upon man's flesh shall it not be poured, neither shall ye make any other like it, after the composition of it: it is holy, and it shall be holy unto you.

    [33] Whosoever compoundeth any like it, or whosoever putteth any of it upon a stranger, shall even be cut off from his people.

    [34] And the LORD said unto Moses, Take unto thee sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; these sweet spices with pure frankincense: of each shall there be a like weight:

    [35] And thou shalt make it a perfume, a confection after the art of the apothecary, tempered together, pure and holy:

    [36] And thou shalt beat some of it very small, and put of it before the testimony in the tabernacle of the congregation, where I will meet with thee: it shall be unto you most holy.

    [37] And as for the perfume which thou shalt make, ye shall not make to yourselves according to the composition thereof: it shall be unto thee holy for the LORD.

    [38] Whosoever shall make like unto that, to smell thereto, shall even be cut off from his people.

    Well, it looks as though we are the only ones left here, jehovahisgod. It’s been a long time for us.
    So.... The answer to Ex 25:24 is “shittim wood”, translated in the KJV, then overlaid with pure gold. The NKJV says: “they shall make an ark of acacia wood. The length was equal to about 4 feet long, 2 foot 3 inches its width, and 2 foot 3 inches its height. The Hebrew word for the wood is shittah, pronounced shit - tah’. The inflection is on the “tah”.

    Someone might ask, “Where did they get the gold? The answer is in Exodus 11:2, and 12:35-36. :)

    I'm glad somebody is here still answering questions and talking about the Bible and about Jehovah. And you're right! You know in the movies they always try to portray the ark as solid gold worth millions of dollars in gold. But in actuality it was overlaid. And good luck having any wood survive for 4000 years if there's anything left of it it would have had to been kept in a stone vault somewhere.

    Well I'm glad you're here also. I guess we're going to have to be like old-style Jehovah's witnesses and go out and recruit some people to actually come participate in this forum it's starting to thin out here.

    Exodus chapter 31.
    [1] And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

    [2] See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah:

    [3] And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,

    [4] To devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass,

    [5] And in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship.

    [6] And I, behold, I have given with him Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts of all that are wise hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded thee;

    [7] The tabernacle of the congregation, and the ark of the testimony, and the mercy seat that is thereupon, and all the furniture of the tabernacle,

    [8] And the table and his furniture, and the pure candlestick with all his furniture, and the altar of incense,

    [9] And the altar of burnt offering with all his furniture, and the laver and his foot,

    [10] And the cloths of service, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest's office,

    [11] And the anointing oil, and sweet incense for the holy place: according to all that I have commanded thee shall they do.

    [12] And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

    [13] Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you.

    [14] Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

    [15] Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.

    [16] Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.

    [17] It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.

    [18] And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.
