Exodus 27:1-8

Instructions for the altar

1 Make an acacia-wood altar. The altar should be square, seven and a half feet long and seven and a half feet wide. It should be four and a half feet high.
2 Make horns for the altar and attach them to it, one horn on each of its four corners. Cover it with copper.
3 Make pails for removing its ashes and its shovels, bowls, meat forks, and trays. Make all its equipment out of copper.
4 Make for the altar a grate made of copper mesh. Make four copper rings for each of the four corners of the mesh.
5 Slide the mesh underneath the bottom edge of the altar and then extend the mesh halfway up to the middle of the altar.
6 Make acacia-wood poles for the altar and cover them with copper.
7 Put the poles through the rings so that the poles will be on the two sides of the altar when it is carried.
8 Make the altar with planks but hollow inside. All these should be made just as you were shown on the mountain.
