Exodus 27

CLV(i) 1 You will make the altar of acacia boards, five cubits the length and five cubits the width. The altar shall come to be square, and its rise shall be three cubits. 2 You will make its horns on its four corners; its horns shall be of one piece with it; and you will overlay it with copper. 3 You will make its pots for its greasy ash, and its shovels, its sprinkling bowls, its flesh-hooks, and its fire-pans; all its furnishings shall you make of copper. 4 You will make it for a grate, a handiwork of copper net, and make on the net four rings of copper on its four ends. 5 You will put it beneath the encompassment of the altar from below so that the net comes as far as halfway up the altar. 6 You will make poles for the altar, poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with copper. 7 Then you will insert its poles in the rings, and the poles will come to be on the two angle walls of the altar when carrying it. 8 Hollow, of planks, shall you make it; just as one shows you on the mount, so shall they do. 9 You will make the court of the tabernacle: for the edge of the Negev southward the slung-sheets for the court shall be of corded cambric, a hundred cubits length for the one edge, 10 with its twenty columns and their twenty copper sockets, the hooks of the columns and their connections of silver;" 11 and so for the north edge, in the length of the court the slung-sheets shall be a hundred cubits long with its twenty columns and their twenty copper sockets, the hooks of the columns and their connections of silver. 12 For the width of the court for the seaward edge, the slung-sheets shall be fifty cubits with their ten columns and their ten sockets. 13 The width of the court for the eastward edge toward the sunrise shall be fifty cubits. 14 Fifteen cubits of slung-sheets shall be for one flank, with their three columns and their three sockets, 15 and for the second flank fifteen cubits of slung-sheets with their three columns and their three sockets. 16 For the gate of the court shall be a portiere of twenty cubits of blue, purple, double-dipped crimson and corded cambric, a handiwork of embroidery with their four columns and their four sockets. 17 On all the columns around the court the connections shall be of silver, their hooks of silver, and their sockets of copper. 18 The length of the court shall be a hundred cubits, and the width fifty by fifty, and its rise five cubits, of corded cambric, and their copper sockets. 19 All the furnishings of the tabernacle for all its service and all its pegs, and all the pegs of the court shall be of copper. 20 As for you, you shall instruct the sons of Israel that they shall take to you pure olive oil, pounded, for the luminary, to kindle the lamp regularly. 21 In the tent of appointment, outside of the curtain which shall be over the testimony, Aaron and his sons shall arrange it from evening until morning before Yahweh. It shall be an eonian statute throughout their generations, for the sons of Israel.
