1 And you shall make an altar of acacia-wood, five cubits long and five cubits broad. The altar shall be square. And the height of it shall be three cubits. 2 And you shall make the horns of it upon the four corners of it. Its horns shall be of the same, and you shall overlay it with bronze. 3 And you shall make its pans to receive its ashes, and its shovels, and its basins, and its flesh-hooks, and its fire-pans. All the vessels of it you shall make of bronze. 4 And you shall make for it a grating, a network of bronze. And upon the net you shall make four bronze rings in the four corners of it. 5 And you shall put it under the ledge of the altar beneath, so that the net may be even to the midst of the altar. 6 And you shall make staves for the altar, staves of acacia-wood, and overlay them with bronze. 7 And the staves shall be put into the rings, and the staves shall be upon the two sides of the altar, to carry it. 8 You shall make it hollow with boards; as it was shown you in the mountain, so shall they make it.
9 And you shall make the court of the tabernacle. For the south side southward there shall be hangings for the court of fine twined bleached linen, of a hundred cubits long for one side. 10 And the twenty pillars of it, and their twenty sockets, shall be of bronze. The hooks of the pillars and their bands shall be of silver. 11 And so for the north side in length, hangings of a hundred cubits long. And its twenty pillars and their twenty sockets shall be of bronze. The hooks of the pillars and their bands of silver. 12 And for the breadth of the court on the west side shall be hangings of fifty cubits. Their pillars shall be ten, and their sockets ten. 13 And the breadth of the court on the east side eastward shall be fifty cubits. 14 The hangings of one side of the gate shall be fifteen cubits. Their pillars shall be three, and their sockets three; 15 and on the other side hangings of fifteen cubits; their pillars three, and their sockets three. 16 And for the gate of the court shall be a screen of twenty cubits, of blue and purple and scarlet, and fine twined bleached linen, worked with needlework; their pillars four, and their sockets four.
17 All the pillars around the court shall be banded with silver; their hooks silver, and their sockets of bronze. 18 The length of the court shall be a hundred cubits, and the width fifty by fifty, and the height five cubits of fine twined bleached linen, and their sockets bronze. 19 All the vessels of the tabernacle in all the service of it, and all the pins of it, and all the pins of the court, shall be bronze.
20 And you shall command the sons of Israel that they bring you pure olive oil beaten for the light, to cause the lamp to burn always 21 in the tabernacle of the congregation, outside the veil which is before the testimony. Aaron and his sons shall order it from evening to morning before Jehovah. It shall be a statute forever to their generations on behalf of the sons of Israel.
