Exodus 27:1-8 Expanded Bible (EXB)

The Altar for the Burnt Offerings

27 “Make an altar of acacia wood, ·four and one-half feet [L three cubits] high. It should be square—·seven and one-half feet [L five cubits] long and ·seven and one-half feet [L five cubits] wide. Make each of the four corners of the altar stick out like a horn [C significance uncertain, but refers to rounded projections on each corner of top; 29:10–12; Lev. 4:18–21; 1 Kin. 2:28–34], in such a way that the corners with their horns are all one piece. Then ·cover [overlay] the whole altar with bronze.

“Use bronze to make all ·the tools and dishes that will be used on the altar [L its utensils]: the pots to remove the ashes, the shovels, the ·bowls for sprinkling blood [L basins], the meat forks, and the ·pans for carrying the burning wood [firepans].

“Make a large bronze screen to hold the burning wood, and put a bronze ring at each of the four corners of it. Put the screen inside the altar, under its ·rim [ledge], halfway up from the bottom [L of the altar].

“Make poles of acacia wood for the altar, and ·cover [overlay] them with bronze. Put the poles through the rings on both sides of the altar to carry it. Make the altar out of boards and leave the inside hollow. Make it as you were shown on the mountain [25:9].
