"Make an altar out of acacia wood, for burning incense.
It is to be square, 18 inches long and 18 inches wide, and it is to be 36 inches high. Its projections at the four corners are to form one piece with it.
Cover its top, all four sides, and its projections with pure gold, and put a gold border around it.
Make two gold carrying rings for it and attach them below the border on two sides to hold the poles with which it is to be carried.
Make these poles of acacia wood and cover them with gold.
Put this altar outside the curtain which hangs in front of the Covenant Box. That is the place where I will meet you.
