Take the finest spices: of liquid myrrh five hundred shekels, and of sweet-smelling cinnamon half as much, that is, two hundred fifty, and two hundred fifty of aromatic cane,
and five hundred of cassia—measured by the sanctuary shekel—and a hin of olive oil;
and you shall make of these a sacred anointing oil blended as by the perfumer; it shall be a holy anointing oil.
