The Bronze Altar

1“And you shall make the altar of acacia wood, five [†]cubits long and five cubits wide; the altar shall be square, and its height shall be three cubits. 2You shall make its horns on its four corners; its horns shall be [†]of the same piece, and you shall overlay it with [†]bronze. 3You shall make its pots for removing its ashes, and its shovels and its bowls and its flesh hooks and its firepans; you shall make all its utensils of bronze. 4You shall make for it a grating, a network of bronze, and on the net you shall make four bronze rings [†]at its four corners. 5You shall put it beneath, under the ledge of the altar, so that the net will reach halfway down the altar. 6You shall make poles for the altar, poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with bronze. 7Its poles shall be inserted into the rings, so that the poles shall be on the two sides of the altar when it is carried. 8You shall make it hollow with planks; as it was shown to you in the mountain, so they shall make it.

The Court of the Tabernacle

9“You shall make the court of the [†]tabernacle. [†]On the south side there shall be hangings for the court of fine twisted linen [†]one hundred cubits long for one side; 10and its pillars shall be twenty, with their twenty bases of bronze; the hooks of the pillars and their [†]bands shall be of silver. 11Likewise for the north side in length there shall be hangings one hundred cubits long, and its twenty pillars with their twenty bases of bronze; the hooks of the pillars and their bands shall be of silver. 12For the width of the court on the west side shall be hangings of fifty cubits with their ten pillars and their ten bases. 13The width of the court on the east side toward the sunrise shall be fifty cubits. 14The hangings for the one [†]side of the gate shall be [†]fifteen cubits with their three pillars and their three bases. 15And for the [†]other [†]side shall be hangings of fifteen cubits with their three pillars and their three bases. 16And as for the gate of the court there shall be a screen of [†]twenty cubits, of [†]blue and purple and scarlet material and fine twisted linen, the work of a [†]weaver, with their four pillars and their four bases. 17All the pillars around the court shall be furnished with silver bands with their hooks of silver and their bases of bronze. 18The length of the court shall be one hundred cubits, and the width fifty throughout, and the height five cubits of fine twisted linen, and their bases of bronze. 19All the utensils of the tabernacle used in all its service, and all its pegs, and all the pegs of the court, shall be of bronze.

20“And you shall command the sons of Israel, that they bring you clear oil of beaten olives for the [†]light, to make a lamp [†]burn continually. 21In the tent of meeting, outside the veil which is before the testimony, Aaron and his sons shall keep it in order from evening to morning before Yahweh; it shall be a perpetual statute throughout their generations [†]for the sons of Israel.
