25 and you shall make of these a sacred anointing oil blended as by the perfumer; it shall be a holy anointing oil. 25 Make these into a sacred anointing oil, a fragrant blend, the work of a perfumer. It will be the sacred anointing oil.
26 With it you shall anoint the tent of meeting and the ark of the covenant, 26 Then use it to anoint the Tent of Meeting, the ark of the Testimony,
27 and the table and all its utensils, and the lampstand and its utensils, and the altar of incense, 27 the table and all its articles, the lampstand and its accessories, the altar of incense,
28 and the altar of burnt offering with all its utensils, and the basin with its stand; 28 the altar of burnt offering and all its utensils, and the basin with its stand.

33 Whoever compounds any like it or whoever puts any of it on an unqualified person shall be cut off from the people." 33 Whoever makes perfume like it and whoever puts it on anyone other than a priest must be cut off from his people.' "
34 The Lord said to Moses: Take sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum, sweet spices with pure frankincense (an equal part of each), 34 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Take fragrant spices--gum resin, onycha and galbanum--and pure frankincense, all in equal amounts,
35 and make an incense blended as by the perfumer, 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 and you shall beat some of it into powder, and put part of it before the covenant in the tent of meeting where I shall meet with you; it shall be for you most holy. 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 When you make incense according to this composition, you shall not make it for yourselves; it shall be regarded by you as holy to the Lord. 37 Do not make any incense with this formula for yourselves; consider it holy to the LORD.
38 Whoever makes any like it to use as perfume shall be cut off from the people. 38 Whoever makes any like it to enjoy its fragrance must be cut off from his people."
