Exodus 25-28

Ex. 25:1 - First recorded commanded offering

Ex. 25:10-16 - Notice the rings and poles. Later, a man will die for reaching out to steady the ark in transit. In that passage (1 Chronicles 13
), however, the poles are absent and the ark is being carried on a cart.

Ex. 28:1-43 - Ephod and stones.
