27 “You are to make the altar of acacia wood. It is to be five cubits[a] long and five cubits[b] wide; the altar is to be a square, and it is to be three cubits[c] high. 2 You are to make horns[d] on its four corners. Its corners are to be of one piece with it, and you are to overlay it with bronze. 3 You are to make pans for removing its ashes, shovels, bowls, forks, and fire-pans for it, and you are to make all its utensils of bronze. 4 You are to make a lattice, a netting of bronze for it, and you are to make four bronze rings on the netting at its four corners. 5 You are to put it under the ledge of the altar, so that the netting extends halfway up the altar. 6 You are to make poles for the altar, poles of acacia wood, and you are to overlay them with bronze. 7 The poles for it are to be put through the rings, so the poles are on the two sides of the altar when it’s carried. 8 You are to make it hollow out of boards—just as it was shown you on the mountain, that’s how they are to make it.”
The Court of the Tent
9 “You are to make the court of the tent. On the south[e] side there is to be hangings of fine woven linen for the court, 100 cubits[f] long on one side. 10 It is to have 20 pillars, with 20 bronze sockets, and the hooks of the pillars and their bands[g] are to be made of silver. 11 Likewise for the length of the north side there are to be hangings 100 cubits[h] long, and it is to have 20 pillars with 20 bronze sockets, and the hooks of the pillars and their bands[i] are to be made of silver.
12 “The width of the court on the west side is to have hangings 50 cubits[j] long with ten pillars and ten sockets. 13 The width of the court on the east side[k] is to be 50 cubits.[l]14 The hangings for the one section[m] are to be fifteen cubits long,[n] with their three pillars and three sockets.
15 “For the second section there are to be hangings of fifteen cubits,[o] with their three pillars and three sockets. 16 There is to be a screen of 20 cubits[p] of blue, purple, and scarlet material and fine woven linen, the work of an embroiderer, for the gate of the court, and it is to have four pillars and four sockets. 17 All the pillars around the court are to be banded with silver. Their hooks are to be made of silver and their sockets made of bronze. 18 The length of the court is to be 100 cubits,[q] the width 50 cubits,[r] and the height five cubits,[s] with the hangings[t] of fine woven linen, and the sockets of bronze. 19 All the utensils of the tent for its service, all its pegs, and all the pegs for the court are to be made of bronze.”
The Oil for the Lamp
20 “And you are to command the Israelis to bring you pure olive oil, extracted by hand,[u] for the light in order to keep the lamp burning[v] continuously. 21 In the Tent of Meeting, outside the curtain that is before the Testimony, Aaron and his sons are to maintain[w] the lamp stand[x] from evening until morning in the Lord’s presence. It is to be a perpetual ordinance from generation to generation among the Israelis.”
