27 RSV BHS Hebrew Text Reference
"You shall make the altar of acacia wood, five cubits long and five cubits broad; the altar shall be square, and its height shall be three cubits. וְעָשִׂיתָ אֶת־הַמִּזְבֵּחַ עֲצֵי שִׁטִּים חָמֵשׁ אַמֹּות אֹרֶךְ וְחָמֵשׁ אַמֹּות רֹחַב רָבוּעַ יִהְיֶה הַמִּזְבֵּחַ וְשָׁלֹשׁ אַמֹּות קֹמָתֹו׃ The Altar. Ex.27.1-8 | Ex.38.1-7
And you shall make horns for it on its four corners; its horns shall be of one piece with it, and you shall overlay it with bronze. וְעָשִׂיתָ קַרְנֹתָיו עַל אַרְבַּע פִּנֹּתָיו מִמֶּנּוּ תִּהְיֶיןָ קַרְנֹתָיו וְצִפִּיתָ אֹתֹו נְחֹשֶׁת׃  
You shall make pots for it to receive its ashes, and shovels and basins and forks and firepans; all its utensils you shall make of bronze. וְעָשִׂיתָ סִּירֹתָיו לְדַשְּׁנֹו וְיָעָיו וּמִזְרְקֹתָיו וּמִזְלְגֹתָיו וּמַחְתֹּתָיו לְכָל־כֵּלָיו תַּעֲשֶׂה נְחֹשֶׁת׃  
You shall also make for it a grating, a network of bronze; and upon the net you shall make four bronze rings at its four corners. וְעָשִׂיתָ לֹּו מִכְבָּר מַעֲשֵׂה רֶשֶׁת נְחֹשֶׁת וְעָשִׂיתָ עַל־הָרֶשֶׁת אַרְבַּע טַבְּעֹת נְחֹשֶׁת עַל אַרְבַּע קְצֹותָיו׃  
And you shall set it under the ledge of the altar so that the net shall extend halfway down the altar. וְנָתַתָּה אֹתָהּ תַּחַת כַּרְכֹּב הַמִּזְבֵּחַ מִלְּמָטָּה וְהָיְתָה הָרֶשֶׁת עַד חֲצִי הַמִּזְבֵּחַ׃  
And you shall make poles for the altar, poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with bronze; וְעָשִׂיתָ בַדִּים לַמִּזְבֵּחַ בַּדֵּי עֲצֵי שִׁטִּים וְצִפִּיתָ אֹתָם נְחֹשֶׁת׃  
and the poles shall be put through the rings, so that the poles shall be upon the two sides of the altar, when it is carried. וְהוּבָא אֶת־בַּדָּיו בַּטַּבָּעֹת וְהָיוּ הַבַּדִּים עַל־שְׁתֵּי צַלְעֹת הַמִּזְבֵּחַ בִּשְׂאֵת אֹתֹו׃  
You shall make it hollow, with boards; as it has been shown you on the mountain, so shall it be made. נְבוּב לֻחֹת תַּעֲשֶׂה אֹתֹו כַּאֲשֶׁר הֶרְאָה אֹתְךָ בָּהָר כֵּן יַעֲשׂוּ׃ ס
