The Altar.  Ex.27.1-8 - Ex.38.1-7

1Make the altar of acacia-wood; it shall be square, five cubits long by five cubits broad and three cubits high. 2Let its horns at the four corners be of one piece with it, and overlay it with bronze. 3Make for it pots to take away the fat and the ashes, with shovels, tossing bowls, forks, and firepans, all of bronze. 4Make a grating for it of bronze network, and fit four bronze rings on the network at its four corners. 5Put it below the ledge of the altar, so that the network comes half-way up the altar. 6Make poles of acacia-wood for the altar and overlay them with bronze. 7They shall be inserted in the rings at both sides of the altar to carry it. 8Leave the altar a hollow shell. As you were shown on the mountain, so shall it be made.

The Enclosure of the tent of the Presence.  Ex.27.9-19 - Ex.38.9-20

9Make 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, 10with twenty posts and twenty sockets of bronze; the hooks and bands on the posts shall be of silver. 11Similarly 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. 12For the breadth of the court, on the west side, there shall be hangings fifty cubits long, with ten posts and ten sockets. 13On the east side, towards the sunrise, which was fifty cubits, 14hangings shall extend fifteen cubits from one corner, with three posts and three sockets, 15and hangings shall extend fifteen cubits from the other corner, with three posts and three sockets. 16At 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. 17The posts all round the court shall have bands of silver, with hooks of silver, and sockets of bronze. 18The 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. 19All the equipment needed for serving the Tabernacle, all its pegs and those of the court, shall be of bronze.

Care of the Lamp.  Ex.27.20-21 - Lv.24.1-4

20You yourself are to command the Israelites to bring you pure oil of pounded olives ready for the regular mounting of the lamp. 21In 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.
