1 And thou shalt make the altar of shittim* wood, five cubits the length, and five cubits the breadth; the altar shall be foursquare; and its height shall be three cubits.

2 And thou shalt make its horns upon its four corners; from it shall be its horns; and thou shalt overlay it with bronze.

3 And thou shalt make its pots to remove its grease, and its shovels, and its basins, and its forks, and its pincers; all the vessels thereof thou shalt make of bronze.

4 And thou shalt make for it a grate, a network of bronze; and upon the net shalt thou make four rings of bronze, upon the four ends of it.

5 And thou shalt put it under the area of the altar below, and the net shall be as·​·far·​·as half of the altar.

6 And thou shalt make poles for the altar, poles of shittim wood, and shalt overlay them with bronze.

7 And its poles shall be made to come into the rings, and the poles shall be upon the two ribs of the altar, in carrying it.

8 Hollow with tablets shalt thou make it; as thou wast made to see in the mountain, so shall they make it.

9 And thou shalt make the court of the Habitation at the south quarter southward; the hangings for the court shall be of fine· twined ·linen, a hundred in cubits the length for the one quarter.

10 And its pillars shall be twenty, and their bases twenty, of bronze; the links of the pillars and their collars shall be of silver.

11 And so for the quarter of the north in length, there shall be hangings of a hundred cubits in length, and its pillars twenty, and their bases twenty, of bronze; the links of the pillars and their collars of silver.

12 And the breadth of the court at the quarter of the sea shall be hangings of fifty cubits; their pillars ten, and their bases ten.

13 And the breadth of the court at the quarter of the east eastward shall be fifty cubits.

14 And the hangings for the wing shall be fifteen cubits; their pillars three, and their bases three.

15 And for the second wing shall be hangings of fifteen cubits; their pillars three, and their bases three.

16 And for the gate of the court a sheltering of twenty cubits, of blue, and crimson, and scarlet twice-dyed, and fine· twined ·linen, the making of the embroiderer; their pillars four, and their bases four.

17 All the pillars around the court shall be collared with silver; their links of silver, and their bases of bronze.

18 The length of the court shall be a hundred in cubits, and the breadth fifty in fifty; and the height five cubits, of fine· twined ·linen, and their bases of bronze.

19 And as for all the vessels of the Habitation in all the service thereof, all the pegs thereof, and all the pegs of the court, shall be of bronze.

20 And thou shalt command the sons of Israel, that they take to thee pure olive oil, beaten for the light, to cause the flame of the lamp to go·​·up* continually.

21 In the Tabernacle of the congregation, outside the veil which is over the Testimony, Aaron and his sons shall arrange it from evening until morning before Jehovah; a statute of an age for their generations with the sons of Israel.
