The Altar of Burnt Offering
1“You are to construct the altar of acacia wood. The altar must be square, 7½ feet long, and 7½ feet wide; it must be 4½ feet high. 2Make horns for it on its four corners; the horns are to be of one piece. Overlay it with bronze. 3Make its pots for removing ashes, and its shovels, basins, meat forks, and firepans; make all its utensils of bronze. 4Construct a grate for it of bronze mesh, and make four bronze rings on the mesh at its four corners. 5Set it below, under the altar’s ledge, so that the mesh comes halfway up the altar. 6Then make poles for the altar, poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with bronze. 7The poles are to be inserted into the rings so that the poles are on two sides of the altar when it is carried. 8Construct the altar with boards so that it is hollow. They are to make it just as it was shown to you on the mountain.
9“You are to make the courtyard for the tabernacle. Make hangings for the south side of the courtyard out of finely spun linen, 150 feet long on that side 10including twenty posts and twenty bronze bases, with silver hooks and silver bands for the posts. 11And so make hangings 150 feet long for the north side, including twenty posts and their twenty bronze bases, with silver hooks and silver bands for the posts. 12For the width of the courtyard, make hangings 75 feet long for the west side, including their ten posts and their ten bases. 13And for the width of the courtyard on the east side toward the sunrise, 75 feet, 14make hangings 22½ feet long for one side of the gate, including their three posts and their three bases. 15And make hangings 22½ feet long for the other side, including their three posts and their three bases. 16The gate of the courtyard is to have a 30-foot screen embroidered with blue, purple, and scarlet yarn, and finely spun linen. It is to have four posts and their four bases.
17“All the posts around the courtyard are to be banded with silver and have silver hooks and bronze bases. 18The courtyard is to be 150 feet long, 75 feet wide at each end, and 7½ feet high, all of it made of finely spun linen. The bases of the posts are to be bronze. 19All the utensils of the tabernacle for every use and all its tent pegs as well as all the tent pegs of the courtyard are to be made of bronze.
The Lampstand Oil
20“You are to command the Israelites to bring you pure oil from crushed olives for the light, in order to keep the lamp burning regularly. 21In the tent of meeting outside the curtain that is in front of the testimony, Aaron and his sons are to tend the lamp from evening until morning before the Lord. This is to be a permanent statute for the Israelites throughout their generations.
