The Altar of Incense

30 “Moreover, you shall make (A)an altar as a place for burning incense; you shall make it of acacia wood. Its length shall be a [a]cubit, and its width a cubit, it shall be square, and its height shall be two cubits; its horns shall be [b]of one piece with it. You shall overlay it with pure gold, its top and its [c]sides all around, and its horns; and you shall make a gold molding all around for it.

10 (A)Then he made the table of acacia wood, two [a]cubits [b]long and a cubit [c]wide and one and a half cubits [d]high. 11 He overlaid it with pure gold, and made a gold molding for it all around. 12 He made a rim for it of a handbreadth all around, and made a gold molding for its rim all around. 13 He cast four gold rings for it and put the rings on the four corners that were on its four feet. 14 Close by the rim were the rings, the holders for the poles to carry the table. 15 He made the poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold, to carry the table. 16 He made the utensils which were on the table, its [e]dishes and its pans and its [f]bowls and its jars, with which to pour out drink offerings, of pure gold.

17 (B)Then he made the lampstand of pure gold. He made the lampstand of hammered work, its base and its shaft; its cups, its [g]bulbs and its flowers were of one piece with it. 18 There were six branches going out of its sides; three branches of the lampstand from the one side of it and three branches of the lampstand from the [h]other side of it; 19 three cups shaped like almond blossoms, a [i]bulb and a flower in one branch, and three cups shaped like almond blossoms, a [j]bulb and a flower in the other branch—so for the six branches going out of the lampstand. 20 In the lampstand there were four cups shaped like almond blossoms, its [k]bulbs and its flowers; 21 and a [l]bulb was under the first pair of branches coming out of it, and a [m]bulb under the second pair of branches coming out of it, and a [n]bulb under the third pair of branches coming out of it, for the six branches coming out of the lampstand. 22 Their [o]bulbs and their branches were of one piece with it; the whole of it was a single hammered work of pure gold. 23 He made its seven lamps with its snuffers and its [p]trays of pure gold. 24 He made it and all its utensils from a talent of pure gold.

25 (C)Then he made the altar of incense of acacia wood: a cubit [q]long and a cubit [r]wide, square, and two cubits [s]high; its horns were of one piece with it. 26 He overlaid it with pure gold, its top and its [t]sides all around, and its horns; and he made a gold molding for it all around. 27 He made two golden rings for it under its molding, on its two sides—on opposite sides—as holders for poles with which to carry it. 28 He made the poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold. 29 (D)And he made the holy anointing oil and the pure, fragrant incense of spices, the work of a perfumer.
