And he made an altar for whole burnt-offering out of [2wood 1incorruptible]; of five cubits was the length, and five cubits the breadth; [4four-cornered 3was 1the 2altar], and [2three 3cubits 1its height]. And he made the horns. Upon the four corners of it were the horns, and he covered them in brass. And he made a rim on the altar, and the lid for it, and the bowls for it, and the meat hooks for it, and the censer for it; and all the utensils for it he made of brass. And he made for it [3grate 4work 1a latticed 2brass]. And he made for the grate four rings of brass upon the four sides. And he placed them under the grate of the altar from below; and [3was 1the 2grate] unto half the altar. And he made the bearing poles for the altar out of [2wood 1incorruptible]; and he brass plated them in brass. And he inserted the bearing poles at the sides of the altar in the lifting it! [3hollow 4planked 1He made 2it]. And he made the [2bathing tub 1brass], and the [2base 3of it 1brass] from out of the mirrors of the women that fasted, who fasted by the doors of the tent of the testimony. And he made for the courtyard, the one towards the south, shrouds for the courtyard from out of linen being twined -- a hundred by a hundred. 10 And their posts -- twenty, and [4bases 1their 2twenty 3brass]. And their hooks and their clips were of silver. 11 And the side towards the north was a hundred by a hundred. And their posts -- twenty, and [4bases 1their 2twenty, 3brass]. And their hooks, and their clips were of silver. 12 And the side towards the west -- curtains of fifty cubits; their posts -- ten, and their bases -- ten, and their hooks, and their clips were of silver. 13 And the side towards the east -- [2of fifty 3cubits 1shrouds], 14 of fifteen cubits according to the back, and their posts -- three, and their bases -- three. 15 And upon the back of the second on this side and that side according to the gate of the courtyard -- curtains of fifteen cubits, and their posts -- three, and their bases -- three. 16 All the curtains for the tent were of linen being twined. 17 And the bases, the ones of their posts were of brass, and their hooks were of of silver, and their tips being silver plated in silver; and the posts being silver plated in silver, all the posts of the courtyard. 18 And the veil of the gate of the courtyard was a work of an embroiderer, of blue, and purple, and scarlet being spun, and linen being twined; twenty cubits was the length, and the height and breadth five cubits, being made equal to the shrouds of the courtyard. 19 And their posts -- four; and their bases -- four, were of brass; and their hooks were of silver, and their tips being silver plated in silver. 20 And all the stanchions of the courtyard round about were of brass. 21 And this was the arrangement of the tent of the testimony, as was given orders to Moses; the ministration to be of the Levites through Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest. 22 And Bezaleel the son of Uri, of the tribe of Judah, made as the  lord gave orders to Moses, 23 and Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, who supervised construction -- the woven works, and the stitched works, and the embroideries, woven in the blue and purple, and scarlet being spun, and linen.
