The Altar of Burnt Offering

1 "You are to construct the altar of acacia wood. The altar must be square, seven and a half feet long, and seven and a half feet wide;a it must be four and a half feet high.b
2 Make horns for it on its four corners; the horns are to be of one piece.c Overlay it with bronze.
3 Make its pots for removing ashes, and its shovels, basins, meat forks, and firepans; make all its utensils of bronze.
4 Construct a grate for it of bronze mesh, and make four bronze rings on the mesh at its four corners.
5 Set it below, under the altar's ledge,d so that the mesh comes halfway upe the altar.
6 Then make poles for the altar, poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with bronze.
7 The poles are to be inserted into the rings, so that the poles are on two sides of the altar when it is carried.
8 Construct the altar with boards so that it is hollow. They are to make it just as it was shown to you on the mountain.
