2 And thou shalt make the horns of it upon the four corners thereof: his horns shall be of the same: and thou shalt overlay it with brass. 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 And thou shalt make his pans to receive his ashes , and his shovels, and his basons, and his fleshhooks, and his firepans: all the vessels thereof thou shalt make of brass. 3 Make all its utensils of bronze--its pots to remove the ashes, and its shovels, sprinkling bowls, meat forks and firepans.
4 And thou shalt make for it a grate of network of brass; and upon the net shalt thou make four brasen rings in the four corners thereof. 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 thou shalt put it under the compass of the altar beneath, that the net may be even to the midst of the altar. 5 Put it under the ledge of the altar so that it is halfway up the altar.
