"You shall make an altar to burn incense upon; of acacia wood shall you make it.
A cubit shall be its length, and a cubit its breadth; it shall be square, and two cubits shall be its height; its horns shall be of one piece with it.
And you shall overlay it with pure gold, its top and its sides round about and its horns; and you shall make for it a molding of gold round about.
And two golden rings shall you make for it; under its molding on two opposite sides of it shall you make them, and they shall be holders for poles with which to carry it.
You shall make the poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with gold.
And you shall put it before the veil that is by the ark of the testimony, before the mercy seat that is over the testimony, where I will meet with you.
