Ezekiel 43:12-14 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

12 This is the law of the house [of the Lord]: The whole area round about on the top of the mountain [a][Mount Moriah] shall be most holy, separated, and set apart. Behold, this is the law of the house [of the Lord].

13 And these are the measurements of the altar [of burnt offering] in cubits. The cubit is a royal cubit [the length of a forearm and a palm of the hand]; the bottom or gutter shall be a cubit deep and a cubit wide, with a rim or lip round about it of a span’s breadth. And this shall be the height of the altar:

14 From the bottom or gutter on the ground to the lower ledge or brim shall be two cubits, and the breadth one cubit; and from the lesser ledge to the greater ledge shall be four cubits, and the breadth one cubit.
