And thou shalt make an altar of incorruptible wood, of five cubits in the length, and five cubits in the breadth; the altar shall be square, and the height of it shall be of three cubits. 2And thou shalt make the horns on the four corners; the horns shall be of the 1 same piece, and thou shalt overlay them with brass. 3And thou shalt make a rim for the altar; and its covering and its cups, and its flesh-hooks, and its fire-pan, and all its vessels shalt thou make of brass. 4And thou shalt make for it a brazen grate


he goes into the holy place before the Lord; and Aaron shall bear the ,judgments of the children of Israel on his breast before the Lord continually. 27And thou shalt make the full-length tunic all of blue. 28And the opening of it shall be in the middle having a fringe round about the opening, the work of the weaver, woven together in the joining of the same piece that it might not be rent. 29And under the fringe of the robe below thou shalt make as it were pomegranates of a flowering pomegranate tree, of blue, and purple, and spun scarlet, and fine linen spun, under the fringe of the robe round about: golden pomegranates of the same shape, and bells round about between these. 30A bell by the side of a golden pomegranate, and flower-work on the fringe of the robe round about. 31And the sound of Aaron shall be audible when he ministers as he goes into the sanctuary before the Lord and as he goes out, that he die not. 32And thou shall make a plate of pure gold, and thou shalt grave on it, as the graving of a signet Holiness of the Lord. 33And thou shalt put it on the spun blue cloth and it shall be on the mitre: it shall be in the front of the mitre. 34And it shall be on the forehead of Aaron; and Aaron shall bear away the sins of their holy things, all that the children of Israel shall sanctify of every gift of their holy things, and it shall be on the forehead of Aaron continually acceptable for them before the Lord.

35And the fringes of the garments shall be of fine linen; and thou shalt make a tire of fine linen, and thou shalt make a girdle, the work of the embroiderer. 36And for the sons of Aaron thou shalt make tunics and girdles, and thou shalt make for them tires for honour and glory. 37And thou shalt put them on Aaron thy brother, and his sons with him, and thou shalt anoint them and 2 fill their hands: and thou shalt sanctify them, that they may minister to me in the priest's office. 38And thou shalt make for them linen drawers to cover the nakedness of their flesh; they shall roach from the loins to the thighs. And Aaron shall have them, and his sons, whenever they enter into the tabernacle of witness or when they shall advance to the altar of the sanctuary to minister, so they shall not bring sin upon themselves, lest they die: it is a perpetual statute for him, and for his seed after him.
