Instructions for Making the Incense Altar

1 "And you will make an altar [for] burning incense; you will make it of acacia wood, 2 a cubit its length and a cubit its width--it will be square--and two cubits its height, its horns {of one piece with it}.a 3 And you will overlay it with pure gold, its top and its sides all around and its horns, and you will make for it a gold molding all around. 4 And you will make two gold rings for it; under its molding {on two opposite sides}b you will make [them] as {holders}c for poles to carry it with them. 5 You will make the poles of acacia wood, and you will overlay them [with] gold. 6 And you will put it before the curtain that [is] upon the ark of the testimony, before the atonement cover, which [is] on the testimony, there where I will meet with you. 7 "And on it Aaron will turn fragrant incense into smoke; {each morning}d when he tends the lamps, he will turn it into smoke. 8 And when Aaron sets up the lamps {at twilight},e he will turn it into smoke--incense of continuity--before Yahweh throughout your generations. 9 You will not offer on it strange incense or a burnt offering or a grain offering, and you will not pour a libation on it. 10 And Aaron will make atonement on its horns one time in the year from the blood of the sin offering of the atonement; one time in the year he will make atonement on it throughout your generations; it is a most holy thing for Yahweh."
