Then the LORD said to Moses, "Take fragrant spices1--gum resin, onycha and galbanum--and pure frankincense, all in equal amounts,
and make a fragrant blend of incense,2 the work of a perfumer.3 It is to be salted and pure and sacred.
Grind some of it to powder and place it in front of the Testimony in the Tent of Meeting, where I will meet4 with you. It shall be most holy5 to you.
Do not make any incense with this formula for yourselves; consider it holy6 to the LORD.
Whoever makes any like it to enjoy its fragrance must be cut off7 from his people."
