"You are to make an altar on which to burn incense; make it of acacia-wood.
It is to be eighteen inches square and three feet high; its horns are to be of one piece with it.
Overlay it with pure gold - its top, all around its sides, and its horns; and put around it a molding of gold.
Make two gold rings for it under its molding at the two corners on both sides; this is where the carrying-poles will go.
Make the poles of acacia-wood, and overlay them with gold.
"Place it in front of the curtain by the ark for the testimony, in front of the ark-cover that is over the testimony, where I will meet with you.
