Chapter 8

1 Hashem spoke to Moses, saying,  2 "Speak to Aaron and say to him - When you kindle the lamps, toward the face of the Menorah shall the seven lamps cast light."

3 Aaron did so; toward the face of the Menorah he kindled its lamps, as Hashem had commanded Moses.  4 This is the workmanship of the Menorah, hammered-out gold, from its base to its flower it is hammered out; according to the vision that Hashem showed Moses, so did he make the Menorah.
