The Bronze Altar

1And thou shalt make an altar of incorruptible wood, of five cubits in the length, and five cubits in the breadth; the altar shall be square, and the height of it shall be of three cubits. 2And thou shalt make the horns on the four corners; the horns shall be of the same piece, and thou shalt overlay them with brass. 3And thou shalt make a rim for the altar; and its covering and its cups, and its flesh-hooks, and its fire-pan, and all its vessels shalt thou make of brass. 4And thou shalt make for it a brazen grate with net-work; and thou shalt make for the grate four brazen rings under the four sides. 5And thou shalt put them below under the grate of the altar, and the grate shall extend to the middle of the altar. 6And thou shalt make for the altar staves of incorruptible wood, and thou shalt overlay them with brass. 7And thou shalt put the staves into the rings; and let the staves be on the sides of the altar to carry it. 8Thou shalt make it hollow with boards: according to what was shewed thee in the mount, so thou shalt make it.

The Courtyard

9And thou shalt make a court for the tabernacle, curtains of the court of fine linen spun on the south side, the length of a hundred cubits for one side. 10And their pillars twenty, and twenty brazen sockets for them, and their rings and their clasps of silver. 11Thus shall there be to the side toward the north curtains of a hundred cubits in length; and their pillars twenty, and their sockets twenty of brass, and the rings and the clasps of the pillars, and their sockets overlaid with silver. 12And in the breadth of the tabernacle toward the west curtains of fifty cubits, their pillars ten and their sockets ten. 13And in the breadth of the tabernacle toward the south, curtains of fifty cubits; their pillars ten, and their sockets ten. 14And the height of the curtains shall be of fifty cubits for the one side of the gate; their pillars three, and their sockets three. 15And for the second side the height of the curtains shall be of fifteen cubits; their pillars three, and their sockets three. 16And a veil for the door of the court, the height of it of twenty cubits of blue linen, and of purple, and spun scarlet, and of fine linen spun with the art of the embroiderer; their pillars four, and their sockets four. 17All the pillars of the court round about overlaid with silver, and their chapiters silver and their brass sockets. 18And the length of the court shall be a hundred cubits on each side, and the breadth fifty on each side, and the height five cubits of fine linen spun, and their sockets of brass. 19And all the furniture and all the instruments and the pins of the court shall be of brass.

The Oil for the Lamps

20And do thou charge the children of Israel, and let them take for thee refined pure olive-oil beaten to burn for light, that a lamp may burn continually 21in the tabernacle of the testimony, without the veil that is before the ark of the covenant, shall Aaron and his sons burn it from evening until morning, before the Lord: it is a perpetual ordinance throughout your generations of the children of Israel.
