And you are to make an altar for the burning of perfume; of hard wood let it be made.
The altar is to be square, a cubit long and a cubit wide, and two cubits high, and its horns are to be made of the same.
It is to be plated with the best gold, the top of it and the sides and the horns, with an edging of gold all round it.
Under the edge on the two opposite sides, you are to make two gold rings, to take the rods for lifting it.
And make these rods of the same wood, plating them with gold.
And let it be placed in front of the veil before the ark of the law, before the cover which is over the law, where I will come face to face with you.
