1And thou shalt make an aulter of Sittim wood, fiue cubites long & fiue cubites broade, it shalbe foure square, and three cubites hye. 2And thou shalt make vnto it hornes in his foure corners: his hornes shalbe of the same as it is of, and thou shalt couer it with brasse. 3And make his ashpannes for his ashes, his beesomes, his basons, his fleshehookes, his firepannes: and all the vessels thereof thou shalt make of brasse. 4And thou shalt make vnto it a grediren also like a net of brasse, and vpon that net shalt thou make foure brasen ringes in the foure corners therof. 5And thou shalt put it vnder the compasse of the aulter beneath, that the net may be in the middest of the aulter. 6And thou shalt make two barres for the aulter of Sittim wood, and couer them with brasse, 7And let them be put in the ringes along by the sides of the aulter, to beare it with all. 8And make the aulter holowe with boordes: euen as it was shewed thee in the mount, so shalt thou make it.

The Oil for the Lamps
(Leviticus 24:1–4)

20And thou shalt commaunde the chyldren of Israel that they geue thee pure oyle oliue beaten for the light, that they may make the lampes to borne alwayes. 21In the tabernacle of the congregation without the vayle whiche is before the witnesse, shall Aaron & his sonnes dresse the lampes both euening and morning before the Lorde: and it shalbe a statute for euer vnto the generations of the chyldren of Israel.
