Exodus 27

VIN(i) 1 And make an altar of hard wood, a square altar, five cubits long, five cubits wide and three cubits high. 2 "Place a horn at each of its four corners. The four horns and the altar must be made out of one piece of wood covered with copper. 3 "Make all the utensils for it out of copper: pots for taking away the altar’s ashes, also shovels, bowls, forks, and incense burners. 4 "Make a grate for it out of copper mesh. Make a copper ring for each of the four corners of the grate. 5 "Place the grate under the ledge of the altar so that it comes halfway up the altar. 6 "Prepare poles out of acacia wood for the altar. Cover them with copper. 7 The poles for it shall be put through the rings, so the poles will be on the two sides of the altar when it's carried. 8 "Make the altar out of boards so that it is hollow inside. It must be made just as you were shown on the mountain. 9 "You shall make the court of the tabernacle. On the south side there shall be hangings of fine woven linen for the court, 150 feet long on one side. 10 And twenty pillars and their twenty brass bases: the pegs of the pillars and their joinings of silver. 11 "The north side should be the same one hundred fifty feet long, with curtains on twenty posts set in twenty copper bases. The hooks and bands on the posts should be made of silver. 12 "The courtyard on the west side should be seventy-five wide and have curtains hung on ten posts set in ten bases. 13 "On the east end, facing the rising sun, the courtyard should also be seventy-five feet wide. 14 Hangings of fifteen cubits in the one side of it with three pillars, and three sockets: 15 And on the other side, hangings fifteen cubits long, with three pillars and three bases. 16 And for the gate of the courtyard there will be a screen of twenty cubits of blue and purple and crimson yarns and finely twisted linen, the work of an embroiderer; with their four pillars and their four bases. 17 All the pillars round the open space are to have silver bands, with hooks of silver and bases of brass. 18 The length of the courtyard will be one hundred cubits and the width fifty cubits and the height five cubits, of finely twisted linen, with their bronze bases. 19 All the instruments of the tabernacle in all the service of it and all the pegs of it and all the pegs of the court, will be of brass. 20 "Command the Israelites that the lighting must be provided by pure virgin olive oil so that the lamps will not go out. 21 "Keep the lamps lit in the tent of meeting outside the canopy where the words of my covenant are. Aaron and his descendants must keep the lamps lit in the LORD's presence from evening until morning. This is a long lasting law among the Israelites for generations to come.
