2 It must be square, 18 inches long and 18 inches wide; it must be 36 inches high. Its horns must be of one piece. 2 It is to be square, a cubit long and a cubit wide, and two cubits high--its horns of one piece with it.
3 Overlay its top, all around its sides, and its horns with pure gold; make a gold molding all around it. 3 Overlay the top and all the sides and the horns with pure gold, and make a gold molding around it.
4 Make two gold rings for it under the molding on two of its sides; put these on opposite sides of it to be holders for the poles to carry it with. 4 Make two gold rings for the altar below the molding--two on opposite sides--to hold the poles used to carry it.

8 When Aaron sets up the lamps at twilight, he must burn incense. There is to be an incense [offering] before the Lord throughout your generations. 8 He must burn incense again when he lights the lamps at twilight so incense will burn regularly before the LORD for the generations to come.

11 The Lord spoke to Moses: 11 Then the LORD said to Moses,
12 "When you take a census of the Israelites to register them, each of the men must pay a ransom for himself to the Lord as they are registered. Then no plague will come on them as they are registered. 12 "When you take a census of the Israelites to count them, each one must pay the LORD a ransom for his life at the time he is counted. Then no plague will come on them when you number them.
13 Everyone who is registered must pay half a shekel/ 5 of an ounce of silver according to the sanctuary shekel (20 gerahs to the shekel). This half shekel is a contribution to the Lord. 13 Each one who crosses over to those already counted is to give a half shekel, according to the sanctuary shekel, which weighs twenty gerahs. This half shekel is an offering to the LORD.
14 Each man who is registered, 20 years old or more, must give this contribution to the Lord. 14 All who cross over, those twenty years old or more, are to give an offering to the LORD.
15 The wealthy may not give more, and the poor may not give less, than half a shekel when giving the contribution to the Lord to atone for your lives. 15 The rich are not to give more than a half shekel and the poor are not to give less when you make the offering to the LORD to atone for your lives.
16 Take the atonement money from the Israelites and use it for the service of the tent of meeting. It will serve as a reminder for the Israelites before the Lord to atone for your lives." 16 Receive the atonement money from the Israelites and use it for the service of the Tent of Meeting. It will be a memorial for the Israelites before the LORD, making atonement for your lives."

19 Aaron and his sons must wash their hands and feet from the basin. 19 Aaron and his sons are to wash their hands and feet with water from it.
20 Whenever they enter the tent of meeting or approach the altar to minister by burning up an offering to the Lord, they must wash with water so that they will not die. 20 Whenever they enter the Tent of Meeting, they shall wash with water so that they will not die. Also, when they approach the altar to minister by presenting an offering made to the LORD by fire,
21 They must wash their hands and feet so that they will not die; this is to be a permanent statute for them, for Aaron and his descendants throughout their generations." 21 they shall wash their hands and feet so that they will not die.

32 It must not be used for [ordinary] anointing on a person's body, and you must not make anything like it using its formula. It is holy, and it must be holy to you. 32 Do not pour it on men's bodies and do not make any oil with the same formula. It is sacred, and you are to consider it sacred.
33 Anyone who blends something like it or puts some of it on an unauthorized person must be cut off from his people." 33 Whoever makes perfume like it and whoever puts it on anyone other than a priest must be cut off from his people.' "

35 Prepare expertly blended incense from these; it is to be seasoned with salt, pure and holy. 35 and make a fragrant blend of incense, the work of a perfumer. It is to be salted and pure and sacred.
36 Grind some of it into a fine powder and put some in front of the testimony in the tent of meeting, where I will meet with you. It must be especially holy to you. 36 Grind some of it to powder and place it in front of the Testimony in the Tent of Meeting, where I will meet with you. It shall be most holy to you.
37 As for the incense you are making, you must not make [any] for yourselves using its formula. It is to be regarded by you as sacred to the Lord. 37 Do not make any incense with this formula for yourselves; consider it holy to the LORD.
38 Anyone who makes something like it to smell its fragrance must be cut off from his people." 38 Whoever makes any like it to enjoy its fragrance must be cut off from his people."
