Exodus 38:1-8 New International Version

38 1  They[1] built the altar of burnt offering of acacia wood, three cubits[2] high; it was square, five cubits long and five cubits wide.[3] 2  They made a horn at each of the four corners, so that the horns and the altar were of one piece, and they overlaid the altar with bronze. 3  They made all its utensils of bronze-its pots, shovels, sprinkling bowls, meat forks and firepans. 4  They made a grating for the altar, a bronze network, to be under its ledge, halfway up the altar. 5  They cast bronze rings to hold the poles for the four corners of the bronze grating. 6  They made the poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with bronze. 7  They inserted the poles into the rings so they would be on the sides of the altar for carrying it. They made it hollow, out of boards. 8  They made the bronze basin and its bronze stand from the mirrors of the women who served at the entrance to the tent of meeting.
