30 RSV BHS Hebrew Text Reference
"You shall make an altar to burn incense upon; of acacia wood shall you make it. וְעָשִׂיתָ מִזְבֵּחַ מִקְטַר קְטֹרֶת עֲצֵי שִׁטִּים תַּעֲשֶׂה אֹתֹו׃ The Altar of Incense. Ex.30.1-10 | Ex.37.25-28
A cubit shall be its length, and a cubit its breadth; it shall be square, and two cubits shall be its height; its horns shall be of one piece with it. אַמָּה אָרְכֹּו וְאַמָּה רָחְבֹּו רָבוּעַ יִהְיֶה וְאַמָּתַיִם קֹמָתֹו מִמֶּנּוּ קַרְנֹתָיו׃  
And you shall overlay it with pure gold, its top and its sides round about and its horns; and you shall make for it a molding of gold round about. וְצִפִּיתָ אֹתֹו זָהָב טָהֹור אֶת־גַּגֹּו וְאֶת־קִירֹתָיו סָבִיב וְאֶת־קַרְנֹתָיו וְעָשִׂיתָ לֹּו זֵר זָהָב סָבִיב׃  
And two golden rings shall you make for it; under its molding on two opposite sides of it shall you make them, and they shall be holders for poles with which to carry it. וּשְׁתֵּי טַבְּעֹת זָהָב תַּעֲשֶׂה־לֹּו מִתַּחַת לְזֵרֹו עַל שְׁתֵּי צַלְעֹתָיו תַּעֲשֶׂה עַל־שְׁנֵי צִדָּיו וְהָיָה לְבָתִּים לְבַדִּים לָשֵׂאת אֹתֹו בָּהֵמָּה׃  
You shall make the poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with gold. וְעָשִׂיתָ אֶת־הַבַּדִּים עֲצֵי שִׁטִּים וְצִפִּיתָ אֹתָם זָהָב׃
