Exodus 26

The Tabernacle

1 “Now you shall make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine woven linen, with blue, purple, and scarlet fabric, and you shall weave them with artistic designs of cherubim.

2 The length of each curtain shall be twenty-eight cubits and the width of each curtain four cubits. Each curtain shall have the same measurements.

3 Five curtains shall be coupled to one another, and the other five curtains shall be coupled to one another.

4 You shall make loops of blue yarn on the edge of the curtain of one set, and likewise you shall do on the outer edge of the curtain of the second set.

5 Fifty loops you shall make in the one curtain, and fifty loops you shall make on the edge of the curtain at the end of the second set, that the loops may be clasped to one another.

6 You shall make fifty clasps of gold and couple the curtains together with the clasps, that it may be one tabernacle.

7 “You shall also make curtains of goats’ hair skins to be a tent over the tabernacle. You shall make eleven such curtains.

8 The length of each curtain shall be thirty cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits; and the eleven curtains shall all have the same measurements.

9 You shall couple five curtains by themselves and six curtains by themselves, and you shall double over the sixth curtain at the forefront of the tent.

10 You shall make fifty loops on the edge of the outermost curtain in one set, and fifty loops on the edge of the curtain of the second set.

11 You shall make fifty bronze clasps, put the clasps into the loops, and couple the tent together, that it may be one.

12 The remaining remnant of the tent’s curtains, that is, the half curtain that remains, shall hang over the back of the tabernacle.

13 A cubit on one side and a cubit on the other side of the remaining length of the tent’s curtains shall hang over the sides of the tabernacle, on this side and on that side, to cover it.

14 You shall also make a covering of ram skins dyed red for the tent, and blue skins as coverings above that.

15 “You shall make the tabernacle posts out of incorruptible wood.

16 Ten cubits shall be the length of each post, and a cubit and a half its width.

17 Two joints shall be made in each post for binding one to another. Thus you shall do for all the posts of the tabernacle.

18 Thus you shall make the posts for the tabernacle, twenty for the north side.

19 You shall make forty bases of silver for the twenty posts: two bases for each of the two joints of the posts.

20 For the second side of the tabernacle, the south side, there shall be twenty posts,

21 and their forty bases of silver: two bases for each of the posts’ two joints.

22 For the far side of the tabernacle, westward, you shall make six posts.

23 You shall also make two posts for the two back corners of the tabernacle.

24 They shall be coupled together at the bottom and at the top by one ring. Thus it shall be for both of them. They shall be equal.

25 So there shall be eight posts with their sixteen bases of silver, two bases for both sides of each post.

26 “You shall make bars of incorruptible wood: five for the posts on one side of the tabernacle,

27 five bars for the posts on the other side of the tabernacle, and five bars for the posts of the side of the tabernacle toward the sea.

28 The middle bar shall pass through the midst of the posts from end to end.

29 You shall overlay the posts with gold, make their rings of gold as holders for the bars, and overlay the bars with gold.

30 Then you shall raise up the tabernacle according to its pattern shown you on the mountain.

31 “You shall then make a veil woven of blue, purple, and scarlet fabric and fine woven linen. It shall be woven with an artistic design of cherubim.†

32 You shall hang it upon the four posts of incorruptible wood overlaid with gold. Their hooks shall be gold upon four bases of silver.

33 You shall hang the veil on the posts. Then you shall bring the ark of the testimony in there behind the veil. The veil shall be a divider for you between the holy place and the holy of holies.

34 You shall put the mercy seat upon the ark of the testimony in the holy of holies.

35 You shall set the table outside the veil, and the lampstand across from the table on the side of the tabernacle toward the south; and you shall put the table on the north side.

36 “You shall make a screen for the door of the tabernacle woven of blue, purple, and scarlet fabric and fine woven linen, made by a weaver.

37 You shall make five posts for the veil and overlay them with gold; their hooks shall be of gold, and you shall cast five bases of bronze for them.

Psalms 67

1 For the End; a psalm of an ode; by David. †

2 Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered, And let those who hate Him flee from before His face. 

3 As smoke vanishes, so let them vanish; As wax melts before the fire, So let the sinners perish from the face of God. 

4 And let the righteous be glad; Let them greatly rejoice before God; Let them be glad with merriment. 

5 Sing to God; sing to His name; Make ready the way for Him Who rides upon the sunset; His name is the Lord; And greatly rejoice before Him. Let them be troubled before His face, 

6 He who is the father of orphans and the judge of widows; God is in His holy place.

7 God settles the solitary in a house; With courage He leads out those in bondage, Likewise those who rebel, who dwell in tombs. 

8 O God, when You went forth before Your people, When You passed through the desert, (Pause) 

9 The earth shook; truly the heavens let the rain fall, Before the face of the God of Sinai, Before the face of the God of Israel. 

10 You, O God, willingly grant rain to Your inheritance, And it was weakened, but You restored it. 

11 Your creatures are dwelling in it; In Your goodness, O God, You provide for the poor. 

12 The Lord will give His word To those proclaiming the gospel with great power, 

13 He who is the King of hosts of the beloved, That He may divide the booty for the beauty of the house. 

14 If you fall asleep in the midst of your portions, You will have the wings of a dove, all covered with silver, And her back with yellow gold. (Pause) 

15 When the heavenly One appoints kings over it, They shall become as white as the snow on Zalmon. 

16 The mountain of God is a fertile mountain, A mountain richly curdled with milk, a fat mountain. 

17 Why do you think about other mountains richly curdled with milk? This is the mountain God consented to dwell in; Truly the Lord will lodge in it to the end. 

18 God’s chariot is ten thousand-fold, Thousands abounding in numbers; The Lord is among them at Sinai in the holy place. 

19 You ascended on high, You led captivity captive; You received gifts for mankind, Truly for the disobedient, so they may dwell there. The Lord God is blessed; 

20 Blessed is the Lord from day to day; The God of our salvation will bring prosperity upon us. (Pause)

Proverbs of Solomon 13

22 He who walks with the wise shall be wise, But he who walks with those without discernment will be known. 

23 Evil things shall pursue sinners, But good things will overtake the righteous.† 

24 A good man will inherit sons of sons, But the wealth of the ungodly will be stored up for the righteous. 

25 The righteous shall live in wealth many years, But the unrighteous will be destroyed suddenly. 

26 He who spares the rod hates his son, But he who loves him instructs him with care.† 

27 A righteous man eats and satisfies his soul, But the souls of the ungodly are in want.

Mark 14

Gethsemane

32 Then they came to a place which was named Gethsemane; and He said to His disciples, “Sit here while I pray.”†

33 And He took Peter, James, and John with Him, and He began to be troubled and deeply distressed.

34 Then He said to them, “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch.”

35 He went a little farther, and fell on the ground, and prayed that if it were possible, the hour might pass from Him.

36 And He said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will. ”†

37 Then He came and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, “Simon, are you sleeping? Could you not watch one hour?

38 Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

39 Again He went away and prayed, and spoke the same words.

40 And when He returned, He found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy; and they did not know what to answer Him.

41 Then He came the third time and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? It is enough! The hour has come; behold, the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners.

42 Rise, let us be going. See, My betrayer is at hand.”

Jesus Is Arrested

43 And immediately, while He was still speaking, Judas, one of the twelve, with a great multitude with swords and clubs, came from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.†

44 Now His betrayer had given them a signal, saying, “Whomever I kiss, He is the One; seize Him and lead Him away safely.”

45 As soon as he had come, immediately he went up to Him and said to Him, “Rabbi, Rabbi!” and kissed Him.

46 Then they laid their hands on Him and took Him.

47 And one of those who stood by drew his sword and struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.†

48 Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Have you come out, as against a robber, with swords and clubs to take Me?

49 I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and you did not seize Me. But the Scriptures must be fulfilled.”

50 Then they all forsook Him and fled.

51 Now a certain young man followed Him, having a linen cloth thrown around his naked body. And the young men laid hold of him,†

52 and he left the linen cloth and fled from them naked.
