Exodus 37:1-29
1. Now Bezalel made the ark of acacia wood; its length was two and a half cubits, and its width one and a half cubits, and its height one and a half cubits;
2. and he overlaid it with pure gold inside and out, and made a gold molding for it all around.
3. He cast four rings of gold for it on its four feet; even two rings on one side of it, and two rings on the other side of it.
4. He made poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold.
5. He put the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark, to carry it.
6. He made a mercy seat of pure gold, two and a half cubits long and one and a half cubits wide.
7. He made two cherubim of gold; he made them of hammered work at the two ends of the mercy seat;
8. one cherub at the one end and one cherub at the other end; he made the cherubim of one piece with the mercy seat at the two ends.
9. The cherubim had their wings spread upward, covering the mercy seat with their wings, with their faces toward each other; the faces of the cherubim were toward the mercy seat.
10. Then he made the table of acacia wood, two cubits long and a cubit wide and one and a half cubits high.
11. He overlaid it with pure gold, and made a gold molding for it all around.
12. He made a rim for it of a handbreadth all around, and made a gold molding for its rim all around.
13. He cast four gold rings for it and put the rings on the four corners that were on its four feet.
14. Close by the rim were the rings, the holders for the poles to carry the table.
15. He made the poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold, to carry the table.
16. He made the utensils which were on the table, its dishes and its pans and its bowls and its jars, with which to pour out drink offerings, of pure gold.
17. Then he made the lampstand of pure gold. He made the lampstand of hammered work, its base and its shaft; its cups, its bulbs and its flowers were of one piece with it.
18. There were six branches going out of its sides; three branches of the lampstand from the one side of it and three branches of the lampstand from the other side of it;
19. three cups shaped like almond blossoms, a bulb and a flower in one branch, and three cups shaped like almond blossoms, a bulb and a flower in the other branch--so for the six branches going out of the lampstand.
20. In the lampstand there were four cups shaped like almond blossoms, its bulbs and its flowers;
21. and a bulb was under the first pair of branches coming out of it, and a bulb under the second pair of branches coming out of it, and a bulb under the third pair of branches coming out of it, for the six branches coming out of the lampstand.
22. Their bulbs and their branches were of one piece with it; the whole of it was a single hammered work of pure gold.
23. He made its seven lamps with its snuffers and its trays of pure gold.
24. He made it and all its utensils from a talent of pure gold.
25. Then he made the altar of incense of acacia wood: a cubit long and a cubit wide, square, and two cubits high; its horns were of one piece with it.
26. He overlaid it with pure gold, its top and its sides all around, and its horns; and he made a gold molding for it all around.
27. He made two golden rings for it under its molding, on its two sides--on opposite sides--as holders for poles with which to carry it.
28. He made the poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold.
29. And he made the holy anointing oil and the pure, fragrant incense of spices, the work of a perfumer.

Exodus 38:1-31
1. Then he made the altar of burnt offering of acacia wood, five cubits long, and five cubits wide, square, and three cubits high.
2. He made its horns on its four corners, its horns being of one piece with it, and he overlaid it with bronze.
3. He made all the utensils of the altar, the pails and the shovels and the basins, the flesh hooks and the firepans; he made all its utensils of bronze.
4. He made for the altar a grating of bronze network beneath, under its ledge, reaching halfway up.
5. He cast four rings on the four ends of the bronze grating as holders for the poles.
6. He made the poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with bronze.
7. He inserted the poles into the rings on the sides of the altar, with which to carry it. He made it hollow with planks.
8. Moreover, he made the laver of bronze with its base of bronze, from the mirrors of the serving women who served at the doorway of the tent of meeting.
9. Then he made the court: for the south side the hangings of the court were of fine twisted linen, one hundred cubits;
10. their twenty pillars, and their twenty sockets, made of bronze; the hooks of the pillars and their bands were of silver.
11. For the north side there were one hundred cubits; their twenty pillars and their twenty sockets were of bronze, the hooks of the pillars and their bands were of silver.
12. For the west side there were hangings of fifty cubits with their ten pillars and their ten sockets; the hooks of the pillars and their bands were of silver.
13. For the east side fifty cubits.
14. The hangings for the one side of the gate were fifteen cubits, with their three pillars and their three sockets,
15. and so for the other side. On both sides of the gate of the court were hangings of fifteen cubits, with their three pillars and their three sockets.
16. All the hangings of the court all around were of fine twisted linen.
17. The sockets for the pillars were of bronze, the hooks of the pillars and their bands, of silver; and the overlaying of their tops, of silver, and all the pillars of the court were furnished with silver bands.
18. The screen of the gate of the court was the work of the weaver, of blue and purple and scarlet material and fine twisted linen. And the length was twenty cubits and the height was five cubits, corresponding to the hangings of the court.
19. Their four pillars and their four sockets were of bronze; their hooks were of silver, and the overlaying of their tops and their bands were of silver.
20. All the pegs of the tabernacle and of the court all around were of bronze.
21. This is the number of the things for the tabernacle, the tabernacle of the testimony, as they were numbered according to the command of Moses, for the service of the Levites, by the hand of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest.
22. Now Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, made all that the LORD had commanded Moses.
23. With him was Oholiab the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, an engraver and a skillful workman and a weaver in blue and in purple and in scarlet material, and fine linen.
24. All the gold that was used for the work, in all the work of the sanctuary, even the gold of the wave offering, was 29 talents and 730 shekels, according to the shekel of the sanctuary.
25. The silver of those of the congregation who were numbered was 100 talents and 1,775 shekels, according to the shekel of the sanctuary;
26. a beka a head (that is, half a shekel according to the shekel of the sanctuary), for each one who passed over to those who were numbered, from twenty years old and upward, for 603,550 men.
27. The hundred talents of silver were for casting the sockets of the sanctuary and the sockets of the veil; one hundred sockets for the hundred talents, a talent for a socket.
28. Of the 1,775 shekels, he made hooks for the pillars and overlaid their tops and made bands for them.
29. The bronze of the wave offering was 70 talents and 2,400 shekels.
30. With it he made the sockets to the doorway of the tent of meeting, and the bronze altar and its bronze grating, and all the utensils of the altar,
31. and the sockets of the court all around and the sockets of the gate of the court, and all the pegs of the tabernacle and all the pegs of the court all around.

Psalms 22:9-15
9. Yet You are He who brought me forth from the womb; You made me trust when upon my mother's breasts.
10. Upon You I was cast from birth; You have been my God from my mother's womb.
11. Be not far from me, for trouble is near; For there is none to help.
12. Many bulls have surrounded me; Strong bulls of Bashan have encircled me.
13. They open wide their mouth at me, As a ravening and a roaring lion.
14. I am poured out like water, And all my bones are out of joint; My heart is like wax; It is melted within me.
15. My strength is dried up like a potsherd, And my tongue cleaves to my jaws; And You lay me in the dust of death.

Proverbs 8:12-21
12. "I, wisdom, dwell with prudence, And I find knowledge and discretion.
13. "The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverted mouth, I hate.
14. "Counsel is mine and sound wisdom; I am understanding, power is mine.
15. "By me kings reign, And rulers decree justice.
16. "By me princes rule, and nobles, All who judge rightly.
17. "I love those who love me; And those who diligently seek me will find me.
18. "Riches and honor are with me, Enduring wealth and righteousness.
19. "My fruit is better than gold, even pure gold, And my yield better than choicest silver.
20. "I walk in the way of righteousness, In the midst of the paths of justice,
21. To endow those who love me with wealth, That I may fill their treasuries.

Matthew 26:51-75
51. And behold, one of those who were with Jesus reached and drew out his sword, and struck the slave of the high priest and cut off his ear.
52. Then Jesus said to him, "Put your sword back into its place; for all those who take up the sword shall perish by the sword.
53. "Or do you think that I cannot appeal to My Father, and He will at once put at My disposal more than twelve legions of angels?
54. "How then will the Scriptures be fulfilled, which say that it must happen this way?"
55. At that time Jesus said to the crowds, "Have you come out with swords and clubs to arrest Me as you would against a robber? Every day I used to sit in the temple teaching and you did not seize Me.
56. "But all this has taken place to fulfill the Scriptures of the prophets." Then all the disciples left Him and fled.
57. Those who had seized Jesus led Him away to Caiaphas, the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were gathered together.
58. But Peter was following Him at a distance as far as the courtyard of the high priest, and entered in, and sat down with the officers to see the outcome.
59. Now the chief priests and the whole Council kept trying to obtain false testimony against Jesus, so that they might put Him to death.
60. They did not find any, even though many false witnesses came forward. But later on two came forward,
61. and said, "This man stated, 'I am able to destroy the temple of God and to rebuild it in three days.'"
62. The high priest stood up and said to Him, "Do You not answer? What is it that these men are testifying against You?"
63. But Jesus kept silent. And the high priest said to Him, "I adjure You by the living God, that You tell us whether You are the Christ, the Son of God."
64. Jesus said to him, "You have said it yourself; nevertheless I tell you, hereafter you will see THE SON OF MAN SITTING AT THE RIGHT HAND OF POWER, and COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN."
65. Then the high priest tore his robes and said, "He has blasphemed! What further need do we have of witnesses? Behold, you have now heard the blasphemy;
66. what do you think?" They answered, "He deserves death!"
67. Then they spat in His face and beat Him with their fists; and others slapped Him,
68. and said, "Prophesy to us, You Christ; who is the one who hit You?"
69. Now Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard, and a servant-girl came to him and said, "You too were with Jesus the Galilean."
70. But he denied it before them all, saying, "I do not know what you are talking about."
71. When he had gone out to the gateway, another servant-girl saw him and said to those who were there, "This man was with Jesus of Nazareth."
72. And again he denied it with an oath, "I do not know the man."
73. A little later the bystanders came up and said to Peter, "Surely you too are one of them; for even the way you talk gives you away."
74. Then he began to curse and swear, "I do not know the man!" And immediately a rooster crowed.
75. And Peter remembered the word which Jesus had said, "Before a rooster crows, you will deny Me three times." And he went out and wept bitterly.
