1 "Using acacia wood, make a square altar 7 1/2 feet wide, 7 1/2 feet long, and 4 1/2 feet high. 1 "Build an altar of acacia wood, three cubits high; it is to be square, five cubits long and five cubits wide.
2 Make a horn at each of the four corners of the altar so the horns and altar are all one piece. Overlay the altar and its horns with bronze. 2 Make a horn at each of the four corners, so that the horns and the altar are of one piece, and overlay the altar with bronze.
3 The ash buckets, shovels, basins, meat hooks, and firepans will all be made of bronze. 3 Make all its utensils of bronze--its pots to remove the ashes, and its shovels, sprinkling bowls, meat forks and firepans.
4 Make a bronze grating, with a metal ring at each corner. 4 Make a grating for it, a bronze network, and make a bronze ring at each of the four corners of the network.
5 Fit the grating halfway down into the firebox, resting it on the ledge built there. 5 Put it under the ledge of the altar so that it is halfway up the altar.
6 For moving the altar, make poles from acacia wood, and overlay them with bronze. 6 Make poles of acacia wood for the altar and overlay them with bronze.
7 To carry it, put the poles into the rings at two sides of the altar. 7 The poles are to be inserted into the rings so they will be on two sides of the altar when it is carried.
8 The altar must be hollow, made from planks. Be careful to build it just as you were shown on the mountain." 8 Make the altar hollow, out of boards. It is to be made just as you were shown on the mountain.
9 "Then make a courtyard for the Tabernacle, enclosed with curtains made from fine linen. On the south side the curtains will stretch for 150 feet. 9 "Make a courtyard for the tabernacle. The south side shall be a hundred cubits long and is to have curtains of finely twisted linen,
10 They will be held up by twenty bronze posts that fit into twenty bronze bases. The curtains will be held up with silver hooks attached to the silver rods that are attached to the posts. 10 with twenty posts and twenty bronze bases and with silver hooks and bands on the posts.
11 It will be the same on the north side of the courtyard -- 150 feet of curtains held up by twenty posts fitted into bronze bases, with silver hooks and rods. 11 The north side shall also be a hundred cubits long and is to have curtains, with twenty posts and twenty bronze bases and with silver hooks and bands on the posts.
12 The curtains on the west end of the courtyard will be 75 feet long, supported by ten posts set into ten bases. 12 "The west end of the courtyard shall be fifty cubits wide and have curtains, with ten posts and ten bases.
13 The east end will also be 75 feet long. 13 On the east end, toward the sunrise, the courtyard shall also be fifty cubits wide.
14 The courtyard entrance will be on the east end, flanked by two curtains. The curtain on the right side will be 22 1/2 feet long, supported by three posts set into three bases. 14 Curtains fifteen cubits long are to be on one side of the entrance, with three posts and three bases,
15 The curtain on the left side will also be 22 1/2 feet long, supported by three posts set into three bases." 15 and curtains fifteen cubits long are to be on the other side, with three posts and three bases.
16 "For the entrance to the courtyard, make a curtain that is 30 feet long. Fashion it from fine linen, and decorate it with beautiful embroidery in blue, purple, and scarlet yarn. It will be attached to four posts that fit into four bases. 16 "For the entrance to the courtyard, provide a curtain twenty cubits long, of blue, purple and scarlet yarn and finely twisted linen--the work of an embroiderer--with four posts and four bases.
17 All the posts around the courtyard must be connected by silver rods, using silver hooks. The posts are to be set in solid bronze bases. 17 All the posts around the courtyard are to have silver bands and hooks, and bronze bases.
18 So the entire courtyard will be 150 feet long and 75 feet wide, with curtain walls 7 1/2 feet high, made from fine linen. The bases supporting its walls will be made of bronze." 18 The courtyard shall be a hundred cubits long and fifty cubits wide, with curtains of finely twisted linen five cubits high, and with bronze bases.
19 "All the articles used in the work of the Tabernacle, including all the tent pegs used to support the Tabernacle and the courtyard curtains, must be made of bronze." 19 All the other articles used in the service of the tabernacle, whatever their function, including all the tent pegs for it and those for the courtyard, are to be of bronze.
20 "Tell the people of Israel to bring you pure olive oil for the lampstand, so it can be kept burning continually. 20 "Command the Israelites to bring you clear oil of pressed olives for the light so that the lamps may be kept burning.
21 The lampstand will be placed outside the inner curtain of the Most Holy Place in the Tabernacle. Aaron and his sons will keep the lamps burning in the LORD's presence day and night. This is a permanent law for the people of Israel, and it must be kept by all future generations." 21 In the Tent of Meeting, outside the curtain that is in front of the Testimony, Aaron and his sons are to keep the lamps burning before the LORD from evening till morning. This is to be a lasting ordinance among the Israelites for the generations to come.
