Exodus 27

Thomson(i) 1 Thou shalt make also an Altar of incorruptible wood, five cubits long and five cubits broad. The Altar shall be square and the height of it shall be three cubits. 2 And thou shalt make the horns at the four corners. The horns shall be a component part of it and thou shalt overlay them with brass. 3 And thou shalt make a border for the Altar. And its cover and its pans and its flesh hooks and its fire hearth and all its utensils thou shalt make of brass. 4 And thou shalt make for it a brass grate of net-work; and for the grate thou shalt make four rings of brass under the four sides; 5 and thou shalt put them under the grate of the altar below [now the grate must be half way up the height of the altar.] 6 And thou shalt make for the altar poles of incorruptible wood and overlay them with brass, 7 and thou shalt put the poles into the rings; and let the poles be along the sides of the altar in carrying it. 8 Hollow, and of boards thou shalt make it. According to what is shewn thee on this mount so shalt thou make it. 9 Thou shalt also make a court for the tabernacle. For the south side, the hangings of the court shall be of cotton thread; the length for that side one hundred cubits 10 and their pillars twenty. And the twenty bases of these pillars shall be of brass and their links and their fillets of silver. 11 So for the north side there shall be hangings a hundred cubits long with their twenty pillars; and the twenty bases of them shall be of brass, and the links and the fillets of these pillars and their bases shall be overlaid with silver. 12 And for the breadth of the court westward there shall be hangings of fifty cubits, their pillars ten and their bases ten. 13 And for the breadth of the court eastward there shall be hangings of fifty cubits, 14 their pillars ten and their bases ten. But on one side of the gateway, the length of the hangings shall be fifteen cubits, their pillars three and their bases three; 15 and for the other side of the gateway, the length of the hangings shall be fifteen cubits; their pillars three and their bases three: 16 and for the gate of the court there shall be a curtain of twenty cubits long, made of blue and purple and scarlet yarn and cotton thread woven with a variety of embroidery; the pillars four and their bases four. 17 All the pillars of the court round about shall be filletted with silver and the capitals shall be silvered and their bases of brass. 18 The length of the court shall be a hundred cubits on each side, and the breadth fifty cubits at each end, and the height of the cotton hangings five cubits. And the bases shall be of brass, 19 and all the implements and all the utensils and all the pins of the court shall be of brass. 20 Moreover thou shalt give orders to the children of Israel; and let them provide for thee, clear, pure oil expressed from olives to burn for a light, that a lamp may be kept burning continually 21 in the tabernacle of the testimony. On the outside of the veil which is before the covenant Aaron and his sons shall keep it burning from evening till morning before the Lord. This shall be an everlasting ordinance for your generations among the children of Israel.
