27Exodus

1 Make the altar of acacia-wood; it shall be square, five cubits long by five cubits broad and three cubits high.

The Altar. Ex.27.1-8 - Ex.38.1-7
2 Let its horns at the four corners be of one piece with it, and overlay it with bronze.  
3 Make for it pots to take away the fat and the ashes, with shovels, tossing bowls, forks, and firepans, all of bronze.  
4 Make a grating for it of bronze network, and fit four bronze rings on the network at its four corners.  
5 Put it below the ledge of the altar, so that the network comes half-way up the altar.  
6 Make poles of acacia-wood for the altar and overlay them with bronze.  
7 They shall be inserted in the rings at both sides of the altar to carry it.  
8 Leave the altar a hollow shell. As you were shown on the mountain, so shall it be made.

 
9 Make the court of the Tabernacle. For the one side, the south side facing southwards, the court shall have hangings of finely woven linen a hundred cubits long,

The Enclosure of the tent of the Presence. Ex.27.9-19 - Ex.38.9-20
10 with twenty posts and twenty sockets of bronze; the hooks and bands on the posts shall be of silver.  
11 Similarly all along the north side there shall be hangings a hundred cubits long, with twenty posts and twenty sockets of bronze; the hooks and bands on the posts shall be of silver.  
12 For the breadth of the court, on the west side, there shall be hangings fifty cubits long, with ten posts and ten sockets.  
13 On the east side, towards the sunrise, which was fifty cubits,  
14 hangings shall extend fifteen cubits from one corner, with three posts and three sockets,  
15 and hangings shall extend fifteen cubits from the other corner, with three posts and three sockets.  
16 At the gateway of the court, there shall be a screen twenty cubits long of finely woven linen embroidered with violet, purple, and scarlet, with four posts and four sockets.  
17 The posts all round the court shall have bands of silver, with hooks of silver, and sockets of bronze.  
18 The length of the court shall be a hundred cubits, and the breadth fifty, and the height five cubits, with finely woven linen and bronze sockets throughout.  
19 All the equipment needed for serving the Tabernacle, all its pegs and those of the court, shall be of bronze.

 
20 You yourself are to command the Israelites to bring you pure oil of pounded olives ready for the regular mounting of the lamp.

Care of the Lamp. Ex.27.20-21 - Lv.24.1-4
21 In the Tent of the Presence Or Tent of Meeting outside the Veil that hides the Tokens, Aaron and his sons shall keep the lamp in trim from dusk to dawn before the LORD. This is a rule binding on their descendants among the Israelites for all time.
