"You are to make an altar for the burning of incense; make it of acacia wood.
It must be square, 18 inches long and 18 inches wide;a it must be 36 inches high.b Its horns must be of one piece.c3
Overlay its top, all around its sides, and its horns with pure gold; make a gold molding all around it.
Make two gold rings for it under the molding on two of its sides; put these on opposite sides of it to be holders for the poles to carry it with.
Make the poles of acacia wood and overlay them with gold.
"You are to place the altar in front of the veil by the ark of the testimony-in front of the mercy seat that is over the testimony-where I will meet with you.
