`And thou hast made an altar [for] making perfume; [of] shittim wood thou dost make it;
a cubit its length, and a cubit its breadth, (it is square), and two cubits its height; its horns [are] of the same.
`And thou hast overlaid it with pure gold, its top, and its sides round about, and its horns; and thou hast made to it a crown of gold round about;
and two rings of gold thou dost make to it under its crown; on its two ribs thou dost make [them], on its two sides, and they have become places for staves, to bear it with them.
`And thou hast made the staves of shittim wood, and hast overlaid them with gold;
and thou hast put it before the vail, which [is] by the ark of the testimony, before the mercy-seat which [is] over the testimony, whither I am met with thee.
