Exodus 37:6-9

37:6 He made an atonement lid of pure gold; its length was three feet nine inches, and its width was two feet three inches. 37:7 He made two cherubim of gold; he made them of hammered metal on the two ends of the atonement lid, 37:8 one cherub on one end and one cherub on the other end. He made the cherubim from the atonement lid on its two ends. 37:9 The cherubim were spreading their wings upward, overshadowing the atonement lid with their wings. The cherubim faced each other, looking toward the atonement lid.

tn Heb “and he made.”

tn Heb “from/at [the] end, from this.”

tn The repetition of the expression indicates it has the distributive sense.

tn The construction is a participle in construct followed by the genitive “wings” – “spreaders of wings.”

tn “The cherubim” has been placed here instead of in the second clause to produce a smoother translation.

tn Heb “and their faces a man to his brother.”

tn Heb “to the atonement lid were the faces of the cherubim.”
