Moreover, the LORD said to Moses,
"Take the finest spices: of liquid myrrh five hundred shekels, and of sweet-smelling cinnamon half as much, that is, two hundred and fifty, and of aromatic cane two hundred and fifty,
and of cassia five hundred, according to the shekel of the sanctuary, and of olive oil a hin;
and you shall make of these a sacred anointing oil blended as by the perfumer; a holy anointing oil it shall be.
And you shall anoint with it the tent of meeting and the ark of the testimony,
and the table and all its utensils, and the lampstand and its utensils, and the altar of incense,
and the altar of burnt offering with all its utensils and the laver and its base;
you shall consecrate them, that they may be most holy; whatever touches them will become holy.
And you shall anoint Aaron and his sons, and consecrate them, that they may serve me as priests.
And you shall say to the people of Israel, 'This shall be my holy anointing oil throughout your generations.
It shall not be poured upon the bodies of ordinary men, and you shall make no other like it in composition; it is holy, and it shall be holy to you.
Whoever compounds any like it or whoever puts any of it on an outsider shall be cut off from his people.'"
And the LORD said to Moses, "Take sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum, sweet spices with pure frankincense (of each shall there be an equal part),
and make an incense blended as by the perfumer, seasoned with salt, pure and holy;
and you shall beat some of it very small, and put part of it before the testimony in the tent of meeting where I shall meet with you; it shall be for you most holy.
And the incense which you shall make according to its composition, you shall not make for yourselves; it shall be for you holy to the LORD.
Whoever makes any like it to use as perfume shall be cut off from his people."
