Bible: Ex 30:1-10

30:1

The Altar of Incense

1 

“You are to make an altar for burning incense; 2  you are to make it of 3  acacia wood. 4  30:2 Its length is to be a foot and a half 5  and its width a foot and a half; it will be square. Its height is to be three feet, 6  with its horns of one piece with it. 7  30:3 You are to overlay it with pure gold – its top, 8  its four walls, 9  and its horns – and make a surrounding border of gold for it. 10  30:4 You are to make two gold rings for it under its border, on its two flanks; you are to make them on its two sides. 11  The rings 12  will be places 13  for poles to carry it with. 30:5 You are to make the poles of acacia wood and overlay them with gold.

30:6You are to put it in front of the curtain that is before the ark of the testimony (before the atonement lid that is over the testimony), where I will meet you. 30:7 Aaron is to burn sweet incense 14  on it morning by morning; when he attends 15  to the lamps he is to burn incense. 16  30:8 When Aaron sets up the lamps around sundown he is to burn incense on it; it is to be a regular incense offering before the Lord throughout your generations. 30:9 You must not offer strange incense on it, nor burnt offering, nor meal offering, and you must not pour out a drink offering on it. 30:10 Aaron is to make atonement on its horns once in the year with some of the blood of the sin offering for atonement; 17  once in the year 18  he is to make atonement on it throughout your generations. It is most holy to the Lord.” 19
