The Altar of Incense

30:1 1 “You are to make an altar for burning incense;2 you are to make it of3 acacia wood.4 30:2 Its length is to be a foot and a half5 and its width a foot and a half; it will be square. Its height is to be three feet,6 with its horns of one piece with it.7 30:3 You are to overlay it with pure gold—its top,8 its four walls,9 and its horns—and make a surrounding border of gold for it.10 30:4 You are to make two gold rings for it under its border, on its two flanks; you are to make them on its two sides.11 The rings12 will be places13 for poles to carry it with. 30:5 You are to make the poles of acacia wood and overlay them with gold.

30:6 “You are to put it in front of the curtain that is before the ark of the testimony (before the atonement lid that is over the testimony), where I will meet you. 30:7 Aaron is to burn sweet incense14 on it morning by morning; when he attends15 to the lamps he is to burn incense.16 30:8 When Aaron sets up the lamps around sundown he is to burn incense on it; it is to be a regular incense offering before the Lord throughout your generations. 30:9 You must not offer strange incense on it, nor burnt offering, nor meal offering, and you must not pour out a drink offering on it. 30:10 Aaron is to make atonement on its horns once in the year with some of the blood of the sin offering for atonement;17 once in the year18 he is to make atonement on it throughout your generations. It is most holy to the Lord.”19
