New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
1 You shall make an altar on which to offer incense; you shall make it of acacia wood. 1 "Make an altar of acacia wood for burning incense.
2 It shall be one cubit long, and one cubit wide; it shall be square, and shall be two cubits high; its horns shall be of one piece with it. 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 You shall overlay it with pure gold, its top, and its sides all around and its horns; and you shall make for it a molding of gold all around. 3 Overlay the top and all the sides and the horns with pure gold, and make a gold molding around it.
4 And you shall make two golden rings for it; under its molding on two opposite sides of it you shall make them, and they shall hold the poles with which to carry 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 You shall make the poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with gold. 5 Make the poles of acacia wood and overlay them with gold.
6 You shall place it in front of the curtain that is above the ark of the covenant, in front of the mercy seat that is over the covenant, where I will meet 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 Aaron shall offer fragrant incense on it; every morning when he dresses the lamps he shall offer it, 7 "Aaron must burn fragrant incense on the altar every morning when he tends the lamps.
8 and when Aaron sets up the lamps in the evening, he shall offer it, a regular 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.
9 You shall not offer unholy incense on it, or a burnt offering, or a grain offering; and you shall not pour a drink offering 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 Once a year Aaron shall perform the rite of atonement on its horns. Throughout your generations he shall perform the atonement for it once a year with the blood of the atoning sin offering. 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."
