"Make an altar out of acacia wood for burning incense.
Make it square -- eighteen inches long and eighteen inches wide -- and make it thirty-six inches high. The corners that stick out like horns must be one piece with the altar.
Cover its top, its sides, and its corners with pure gold, and put a gold strip all around the altar.
Make two gold rings beneath the gold strip on opposite sides of the altar, and slide poles through them to carry the altar.
Make the poles from acacia wood and cover them with gold.
Put the altar of incense in front of the curtain that is near the Ark of the Agreement, in front of the lid that covers that Ark. There I will meet with you.
