Exodus 27

1 And thou shall make the altar of acacia wood, five cubits long, and five cubits broad (the altar shall be foursquare), and the height of it shall be three cubits.

2 And thou shall make the horns of it upon the four corners of it. The horns of it shall be of one piece with it, and thou shall overlay it with brass.

3 And thou shall make its pots to take away its ashes, and its shovels, and its basins, and its flesh-hooks, and its firepans; all the vessels of it thou shall make of brass.

4 And thou shall make for it a grating of network of brass, and upon the network thou shall make four brazen rings in the four corners of it.

5 And thou shall put it under the ledge round the altar beneath, that the network may reach halfway up the altar.

6 And thou shall make staves for the altar, staves of acacia wood, and overlay them with brass.

7 And the staves of it shall be put into the rings, and the staves shall be upon the two sides of the altar, in bearing it.

8 Thou shall make it hollow with planks. As it has been shown thee on the mount, so shall they make it.

16 And for the gate of the court shall be a screen of twenty cubits, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, the work of the embroiderer, their pillars four, and their sockets four.

18 The length of the court shall be a hundred cubits, and the breadth fifty everywhere, and the height five cubits, of fine twined linen, and their sockets of brass.
