The Lord said to Moses, 123
"Take the finest spices - 12 pounds of liquid myrrh, 6 pounds of sweet-smelling cinnamon, 6 pounds of sweet-smelling cane,
and 12 pounds of cassia (all weighed according to the official standard). Add one gallon of olive oil,
and make a sacred anointing oil, mixed like perfume.
Use it to anoint the Tent of my presence, the Covenant Box,
the table and all its equipment, the lampstand and its equipment, the altar for burning incense,
the altar for burning offerings, together with all its equipment, and the washbasin with its base.
Dedicate these things in this way, and they will be completely holy, and anyone or anything that touches them will be harmed by the power of its holiness. a30
Then anoint Aaron and his sons, and ordain them as priests in my service.
Say to the people of Israel, "This holy anointing oil is to be used in my service for all time to come.
It must not be poured on ordinary men, and you must not use the same formula to make any mixture like it. It is holy, and you must treat it as holy.
Whoever makes any like it or uses any of it on anyone who is not a priest will no longer be considered one of my people.' "
The Lord said to Moses, "Take an equal part of each of the following sweet spices - stacte, onycha, galbanum, and pure frankincense.
Use them to make incense, mixed like perfume. Add salt to keep it pure and holy.
Beat part of it into a fine powder, take it into the Tent of my presence, and sprinkle it in front of the Covenant Box. Treat this incense as completely holy.
Do not use the same formula to make any incense like it for yourselves. Treat it as a holy thing dedicated to me.
If anyone makes any like it for use as perfume, he will no longer be considered one of my people."
