1 "Using acacia wood, make a square altar 7 1/2 feet wide, 7 1/2 feet long, and 4 1/2 feet high. 1 "Build an altar of acacia wood, three cubits high; it is to be square, five cubits long and five cubits wide.
2 Make a horn at each of the four corners of the altar so the horns and altar are all one piece. Overlay the altar and its horns 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 The ash buckets, shovels, basins, meat hooks, and firepans will all be made 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 Make a bronze grating, with a metal ring at each corner. 4 Make a grating for it, a bronze network, and make a bronze ring at each of the four corners of the network.
5 Fit the grating halfway down into the firebox, resting it on the ledge built there. 5 Put it under the ledge of the altar so that it is halfway up the altar.
6 For moving the altar, make poles from acacia wood, and overlay them with bronze. 6 Make poles of acacia wood for the altar and overlay them with bronze.
7 To carry it, put the poles into the rings at two sides of the altar. 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 The altar must be hollow, made from planks. Be careful to build it just as you were shown on the mountain." 8 Make the altar hollow, out of boards. It is to be made just as you were shown on the mountain.
