Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 And you are to make an altar for the burning of perfume; of hard wood let it be made. 1 "Make an altar of acacia wood for burning incense.
2 The altar is to be square, a cubit long and a cubit wide, and two cubits high, and its horns are to be made of the same. 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 It is to be plated with the best gold, the top of it and the sides and the horns, with an edging of gold all round it. 3 Overlay the top and all the sides and the horns with pure gold, and make a gold molding around it.
4 Under the edge on the two opposite sides, you are to make two gold rings, to take the rods for lifting it. 4 Make two gold rings for the altar below the molding--two on opposite sides--to hold the poles used to carry it.
5 And make these rods of the same wood, plating them with gold. 5 Make the poles of acacia wood and overlay them with gold.
6 And let it be placed in front of the veil before the ark of the law, before the cover which is over the law, where I will come face to face with you. 6 Put the altar in front of the curtain that is before the ark of the Testimony--before the atonement cover that is over the Testimony--where I will meet with you.
7 And on this altar sweet spices are to be burned by Aaron every morning when he sees to the lights. 7 "Aaron must burn fragrant incense on the altar every morning when he tends the lamps.
8 And every evening, when he puts the lights up in their places, the spices are to be burned, a sweet-smelling smoke going up before the Lord from generation to generation for ever. 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.
9 No strange perfume, no burned offering or meal offering, and no drink offering is to be offered on it. 9 Do not offer on this altar any other incense or any burnt offering or grain offering, and do not pour a drink offering on it.
10 And once every year Aaron is to make its horns clean: with the blood of the sin-offering he is to make it clean once every year from generation to generation: it is most holy to the Lord. 10 Once a year Aaron shall make atonement on its horns. This annual atonement must be made with the blood of the atoning sin offering for the generations to come. It is most holy to the LORD."
11 And the Lord said to Moses, 11 Then the LORD said to Moses,
12 When you are taking the number of the children of Israel, let every man who is numbered give to the Lord a price for his life, so that no disease may come on them when they are numbered. 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 And this is what they are to give; let every man who is numbered give half a shekel, by the scale of the holy place: (the shekel being valued at twenty gerahs:) this money is an offering 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 Everyone who is numbered, from twenty years old and over, is to give an offering to the Lord. 14 All who cross over, those twenty years old or more, are to give an offering to the LORD.
15 The man of wealth is to give no more and the poor man no less than the half-shekel of silver, when the offering is made to the Lord as the price 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 And you are to take this money from the children of Israel to be used for the work of the Tent of meeting, to keep the memory of the children of Israel before the Lord and to be the price of 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."
17 And the Lord said to Moses, 17 Then the LORD said to Moses,
18 You are to make a brass washing-vessel, with a brass base; and put it between the Tent of meeting and the altar, with water in it; 18 "Make a bronze basin, with its bronze stand, for washing. Place it between the Tent of Meeting and the altar, and put water in it.
19 That it may be used by Aaron and his sons for washing their hands and feet; 19 Aaron and his sons are to wash their hands and feet with water from it.
20 Whenever they go into the Tent of meeting they are to be washed with water, to keep them from death; and whenever they come near to do the work of the altar, or to make an offering by fire to the Lord, 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 Their hands and feet are to be washed. so that they may be safe from death: this is an order to them for ever; to him and his seed from generation to generation. 21 they shall wash their hands and feet so that they will not die. This is to be a lasting ordinance for Aaron and his descendants for the generations to come."
22 And the Lord said to Moses, 22 Then the LORD said to Moses,
23 Take the best spices, five hundred shekels' weight of liquid myrrh, and of sweet cinnamon half as much, that is, two hundred and fifty shekels, and two hundred and fifty shekels of sweet calamus, 23 "Take the following fine spices: 500 shekels of liquid myrrh, half as much (that is, 250 shekels) of fragrant cinnamon, 250 shekels of fragrant cane,
24 And of cassia, five hundred shekels' weight measured by the scale of the holy place, and of olive oil a hin: 24 500 shekels of cassia--all according to the sanctuary shekel--and a hin of olive oil.
25 And make these into a holy oil, a perfume made by the art of the perfume-maker; it is to be a holy 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 This oil is to be put on the Tent of meeting, and on the ark of the law, 26 Then use it to anoint the Tent of Meeting, the ark of the Testimony,
27 And on the table and all its vessels, and on the support for the lights, with its vessels, and on the altar for burning spices, 27 the table and all its articles, the lampstand and its accessories, the altar of incense,
28 And on the altar of burned offerings with its vessels, and on the washing-vessel and its base. 28 the altar of burnt offering and all its utensils, and the basin with its stand.
29 And you are to make them most holy; anything touching them will become holy. 29 You shall consecrate them so they will be most holy, and whatever touches them will be holy.
30 And put the oil on Aaron and his sons, making them holy to do the work of priests to me. 30 "Anoint Aaron and his sons and consecrate them so they may serve me as priests.
31 And say to the children of Israel, This is to be the Lord's holy oil, from generation to generation. 31 Say to the Israelites, 'This is to be my sacred anointing oil for the generations to come.
32 It is not to be used for man's flesh, and no other is to be made like it: holy it is, and you are to keep it holy. 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 Whoever makes any like it, or puts it on one who is not a priest, will 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.' "
34 And the Lord said to Moses, Take sweet spices, stacte and onycha and galbanum, with the best frankincense, in equal weights; 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 from them a perfume, such as is made by the art of the perfume-maker, mixed with salt, and clean 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 put some of it, crushed very small, in front of the ark in the Tent of meeting, where I will come face to face with you; it is to be 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 You are not to make any perfume like it for yourselves: it is to be kept 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, for its sweet smell, will be cut off from his people. 38 Whoever makes any like it to enjoy its fragrance must be cut off from his people."
