30 “Make an altar of acacia wood for burning incense.2 It is to be square, a cubit long and a cubit wide, and two cubits high[a]—its horns of one piece with it.3 Overlay the top and all the sides and the horns with pure gold, and make a gold molding around it.4 Make two gold rings for the altar below the molding—two on each of the opposite sides—to hold the poles used to carry it.5 Make the poles of acacia wood and overlay them with gold.6 Put the altar in front of the curtain that shields the ark of the covenant law—before the atonement cover that is over the tablets of the covenant law—where I will meet with you.
7 “Aaron must burn fragrant incense on the altar every morning when he tends the lamps.8 He must burn incense again when he lights the lamps at twilight so incense will burn regularly before the Lord for the generations to come.9 Do not offer on this altar any other incense or any burnt offering or grain offering, and do not pour a drink offering on it.10 Once a year Aaron shall make atonement on its horns. This annual atonement must be made with the blood of the atoning sin offering[b] for the generations to come. It is most holy to the Lord.”
Exodus 30:2That is, about 1 1/2 feet long and wide and 3 feet high or about 45 centimeters long and wide and 90 centimeters high
34 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Take fragrant spices—gum resin, onycha and galbanum—and pure frankincense, all in equal amounts,35 and make a fragrant blend of incense, the work of a perfumer. It is to be salted and pure and sacred.36 Grind some of it to powder and place it in front of the ark of the covenant law in the tent of meeting, where I will meet with you. It shall be most holy to you.37 Do not make any incense with this formula for yourselves; consider it holy to the Lord.38 Whoever makes incense like it to enjoy its fragrance must be cut off from their people.”
