Ex 30:17–21

30:17–21 The priests washed their hands and feet when they approached the altar or entered the tabernacle for ministry. No dimensions are given for the basin, though Solomon’s temple basins were massive (1 Kin. 7:38). Neglecting to wash might cause death—the holy God was not to be approached casually (vv. 20, 21).
