1 Then the LORD° spoke° to Moses°, saying°, 2 “Speak° to Aaron° and say° to him, ‘When you Imount° the lamps°, the seven° lamps° will agive° light° in the front° of the lampstand°.’” 3 Aaron° therefore did° so°; he Imounted° its lamps° at the front° of the lampstand°, just° as the LORD° had commanded° Moses°. 4 aNow this° was the workmanship° of the lampstand°, hammered° work° of gold°; from its base° to its flowers° it was hammered° work°; baccording to the pattern° which° the LORD° had shown° Moses°, so° he made° the lampstand°.
