CLV(i) 1 You will make the altar for fuming incense; of acacia boards shall you make it. 2 A cubit shall be its length and a cubit its width. Square it shall be, and two cubits its rise. Its horns are one piece with it. 3 You will overlay it with pure gold, its top around its sidewalls and its horns; and you will make for it a flange of gold round about. 4 Two rings of gold shall you make for it. Beneath its flange, on its two angle walls shall you make them, on its two sides. And they shall be for housings for the poles, to carry it with them. 5 You will make the poles of acacia wood and overlay them with gold; 6 and you will put it before the curtain which shall be by the coffer of the testimony, before the propitiatory shelter which shall be on the testimony where I shall keep appointment with you. 7 Aaron will cause incense of spices to fume on it morning by morning; when making good the lamps shall he cause it to fume; 8 and when Aaron sets up the lamps between the evening hours, he shall cause it to fume as incense regularly before Yahweh throughout your generations. 9 You shall not set up on it an alien incense or an ascent offering or an approach present, and a libation you shall not libate on it. 10 Aaron will make a propitiatory shelter on its horns once in the year with the blood of the sin offering of the propitiatory shelter; once in the year shall he make a propitiatory shelter on it throughout your generations. It shall be a holy of holies to Yahweh. 11 Yahweh spoke to Moses saying: 12 When you take up the sum of the sons of Israel by their mustered ones then each man will give a sheltering ransom for his soul to Yahweh while one is mustering them, so that no stroke may come among them when mustering them. 13 This shall they give, everyone passing over to the ones being mustered: a half shekel by the shekel of the holy place, which is twenty gerahs to the shekel; the half shekel shall be a heave offering to Yahweh. 14 Everyone passing over to the ones being mustered from twenty years old and upward shall give Yahweh's heave offering. 15 The rich shall not increase it, and the poor shall not decrease it from half a shekel, to give as Yahweh's heave offering to shelter your souls. 16 You will take the sheltering ransom silver from the sons of Israel and give it to the service of the tent of appointment that it become for the sons of Israel a memorial before Yahweh to shelter your souls. 17 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying. 18 You will make a laver of copper and its post of copper, for washing, and put it between the tent of appointment and the altar, and put water therein, 19 that Aaron and his sons will wash their hands and their feet from it. 20 Whenever they enter into the tent of appointment they shall wash with water so that they should not die, or when they come close to the altar to minister, to fume incense by fire to Yahweh;" 21 then they will wash their hands and their feet so that they should not die. It will become to them an eonian statute, for him and his seed throughout their generations. 22 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying. 23 As for you, take to yourself the principal aromatics, of free flowing myrrh five hundred shekels worth and of aromatic cinnamon half of it, two hundred fifty, and of aromatic reed two hundred fifty, 24 and of cassia five hundred by the shekel of the holy place, and of olive oil a hin;" 25 and you will make of it a holy anointing oil, a compounded ointment, the handiwork of a compounder. A holy anointing oil shall it be. 26 With it you will anoint the tent of appointment and the coffer of the testimony, 27 the table and all its furnishings, the lampstand and its furnishings and the altar of incense, 28 the altar of ascent offering and all its furnishings, the laver and its post. 29 You will hallow them so that they become a holy of holies. All that touches them shall be holy. 30 Aaron and his sons shall you anoint and hallow them to serve as priests for Me. 31 And to the sons of Israel shall you speak, saying: A holy anointing oil shall this become to Me throughout your generations. 32 On human flesh of others it shall not be rubbed, and by its recipe you shall not make such as it. It is holy; holy shall it become to you. 33 The man who compounds such as it, and who gives any of it to an alien, he will be cut off from his people. 34 Yahweh said to Moses: Take to yourself spices: stacte, murex shell and galbanum, spices with pure frankincense. Component by component shall it be;" 35 and you will make of it an incense, a compound of the handiwork of a compounder, salted clean, holy. 36 Then you will reduce to powder some of it, pulverized, and put it before the testimony in the tent of appointment where I shall keep appointment with you. A holy of holies shall it become to you. 37 Yet the incense which you shall make by its recipe you shall not make for yourselves. Holy shall it be to you for Yahweh. 38 The man who makes such as it to smell of it, he will be cut off from his people.
