7 And upon the table of the face they shall spread a garment cerulean purple, and they gave upon it the dishes, and the censers, and the bowls and the cups pouring out: and the continual bread shall be upon it. 8 And they spread upon them a garment of double scarlet, and they covered it with a cover of tahash skins, and they put up the bars.
9 And they took a garment cerulean purple, and covered the chandelier of the light, and its lamps and its,tongs and its fire pans, and all the vessels of its oil, which they shall serve to it with them: 10 And they gave it and all its vessels into a covering of tahash skins, and they gave upon the bar.

13 And they shall anoint the altar, and spread upon it a purple garment: 14 And they shall give upon it all its vessels which they shall serve upon it with them, the fire pans, and the flesh hooks, and the shovels and the vases, and all the vessels of the altar; and they covered over it a tahash skin covering, and they set up its bars.
