1 "You shall make the altar of acacia wood, five cubits long and five cubits broad; the altar shall be square, and its height shall be three cubits. 1 "Build an altar of acacia wood, three cubits high; it is to be square, five cubits long and five cubits wide.
2 And you shall make horns for it on its four corners; its horns shall be of one piece with it, and you shall overlay it 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 You shall make pots for it to receive its ashes, and shovels and basins and forks and firepans; all its utensils you shall make 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 You shall also make for it a grating, a network of bronze; and upon the net you shall make four bronze rings at its four corners. 4 Make a grating for it, a bronze network, and make a bronze ring at each of the four corners of the network.
5 And you shall set it under the ledge of the altar so that the net shall extend halfway down the altar. 5 Put it under the ledge of the altar so that it is halfway up the altar.
6 And you shall make poles for the altar, poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with bronze; 6 Make poles of acacia wood for the altar and overlay them with bronze.
7 and the poles shall be put through the rings, so that the poles shall be upon the two sides of the altar, when it is carried. 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 You shall make it hollow, with boards; as it has been shown you on the mountain, so shall it be made. 8 Make the altar hollow, out of boards. It is to be made just as you were shown on the mountain.
