Exodus Chapter 27 |
1You shall make the altar of acacia wood, five cubits long and five cubits wide—the altar is to be square—and three cubits high. 2Make its horns on the four corners, the horns to be of one piece with it; and overlay it with copper. 3Make the pails for removing its ashes, as well as its scrapers, basins, flesh hooks, and fire pans—make all its utensils of copper. 4Make for it a grating of meshwork in copper; and on the mesh make four copper rings at its four corners. 5Set the mesh below, under the ledge of the altar, so that it extends to the middle of the altar. 6And make poles for the altar, poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with copper. 7The poles shall be inserted into the rings, so that the poles remain on the two sides of the altar when it is carried. 8Make it hollow, of boards. As you were shown on the mountain, so shall they be made.
9You shall make the enclosure of the Tabernacle:
On the south side, a hundred cubits of hangings of fine twisted linen for the length of the enclosure on that side— 10with its twenty posts and their twenty sockets of copper, the hooks and bands of the posts to be of silver.
11Again a hundred cubits of hangings for its length along the north side—with its twenty posts and their twenty sockets of copper, the hooks and bands of the posts to be of silver.
12For the width of the enclosure, on the west side, fifty cubits of hangings, with their ten posts and their ten sockets.
13For the width of the enclosure on the front, or east side, fifty cubits: 14fifteen cubits of hangings on the one flank, with their three posts and their three sockets; 15fifteen cubits of hangings on the other flank, with their three posts and their three sockets; 16and for the gate of the enclosure, a screen of twenty cubits, of blue, purple, and crimson yarns, and fine twisted linen, done in embroidery, with their four posts and their four sockets.
17All the posts round the enclosure shall be banded with silver and their hooks shall be of silver; their sockets shall be of copper.
18The length of the enclosure shall be a hundred cubits, and the width fifty throughout; and the height five cubits—[with hangings] of fine twisted linen. The sockets shall be of copper:
19all the utensils of the Tabernacle, for all its service, as well as all its pegs and all the pegs of the court, shall be of copper.
20You shall further instruct the Israelites to bring you clear oil of beaten olives for lighting, for kindling lamps regularly. 21Aaron and his sons shall set them up in the Tent of Meeting, outside the curtain which is over [the Ark of] the Pact, [to burn] from evening to morning before the Lord. It shall be a due from the Israelites for all time, throughout the ages.
