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
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.
