Exodus 37:17-24

Context
The Making of the Lampstand

37:17 He made the lampstand of pure gold. He made the lampstand of hammered metal; its base and its shaft, its cups, its buds, and its blossoms were from the same piece. 1  37:18 Six branches were extending from its sides, three branches of the lampstand from one side of it, and three branches of the lampstand from the other side of it. 37:19 Three cups shaped like almond flowers with buds and blossoms were on the first branch, and three cups shaped like almond flowers with buds and blossoms were on the next 2  branch, and the same 3  for the six branches that were extending from the lampstand. 37:20 On the lampstand there were four cups shaped like almond flowers with buds and blossoms, 37:21 with a bud under the first two branches from it, and a bud under the next two branches from it, and a bud under the third two branches from it; according to the six branches that extended from it. 4  37:22 Their buds and their branches were of one piece; 5  all of it was one hammered piece of pure gold. 37:23 He made its seven lamps, its trimmers, and its trays of pure gold. 37:24 He made the lampstand 6  and all its accessories with seventy-five pounds of pure gold.

1 tn Heb “from it”; the referent (“the same piece” of wrought metal) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

2 tn Heb “the one branch.” But the repetition of “one…one” means here one after another, or the “first” and then the “next.”

3 tn Heb “thus for six branches….”

4 tn As in Exod 26:35, the translation of “first” and “next” and “third” is interpretive, because the text simply says “under two branches” in each of three places.

5 tn Heb “were from it.”

6 tn Heb “it”; the referent (the lampstand) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
