Exodus: Chapter 37

From within
Created of self
A single circle
Pure and shining
Within and without 

[For full chapter, click here 
From the structure, the creation of the Dwelling moves inwards, to the Sanctuary. At the center of holiness, there is no separation. Instead of "linkages" or interweaving, the key word in memeno, "from itself." The parts are elements of the whole, created from the same substance. The keruvim are made "of the kaporet", the elements of the Menorah are made of itself. Everything is formed of "pure" (tahor) untranishing gold. A leitword is "souround" "circle" (saviv)--a whole with no begining and end]
