Shemot 27 Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

27 And thou shalt build the Mizbe’ach of acacia wood, five cubits long, and five cubits wide; the Mizbe’ach shall be foursquare; and the height thereof shall be shalosh cubits.

And thou shalt make the karnot of it upon the four corners thereof; its karnot shall be of one piece with it; and thou shalt overlay it with nechoshet.

And thou shalt make its pots to receive its ashes, and its shovels, and its basins, and its meat forks, and its firepans; all the vessels thereof thou shalt make of nechoshet.

And thou shalt build for it a mikhbar (grate), a strainer reshet (mesh, netting) of nechoshet; and upon the meshwork shalt thou make four taba’ot (rings) of nechoshet in the four corners thereof.

And thou shalt put it under the karkov ([surrounding] border, ledge) of the Mizbe’ach from below, that the meshwork may be half the height of the Mizbe’ach.

And thou shalt make badim (carrying poles) designed for the Mizbe’ach, poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with nechoshet.

And the badim shall be put into the taba’ot, and the badim shall be upon the two sides of the Mizbe’ach, to carry it.

Hollow, with luchot (planks, boards, panels), shalt thou make as it was showed thee on HaHar, so shall they make it.

And thou shalt make the Khatzer (Courtyard) of the Mishkan; for the south side southward there shall be kela’im (curtains, hangings) for the Khatzer (Courtyard) of twisted linen of a hundred cubits long for one side;

10 And the twenty ammudim thereof and their twenty sockets shall be of nechoshet; the hooks of the ammudim and their bands shall be of kesef.

11 And likewise for the north side in length there shall be kela’im (curtains, hangings) of a hundred cubits long, and its twenty ammudim and their twenty sockets of nechoshet; the hooks of the ammudim and their bands of kesef.

12 And for the width of the Khatzer (Courtyard) on the west side shall be kela’im (curtains, hangings) of fifty cubits; their ammudim ten, and their sockets ten.

13 And the width of the Khatzer (Courtyard) on the east side mizrachah (eastward, toward sunrise) shall be fifty cubits.

14 The kela’im (curtains, hangings) of one shoulder [of the entrance] shall be fifteen cubits; their ammudim shloshah, and their sockets shloshah.

15 And on the other shoulder [of the entrance] shall be hangings fifteen cubits; their ammudim shloshah, and their sockets shloshah.

16 And for the sha’ar (gate) of the Khatzer (Courtyard) shall be a Masach (Screen) of twenty cubits, of turquoise, and purple, and scarlet, and twisted linen, wrought with ma’aseh rokem (craft or work of embroidering); and their ammudim shall be four, and their sockets four.

17 All the ammudim around the Khatzer (Courtyard) shall be banded with kesef; their hooks shall be of kesef, and their sockets of nechoshet.

18 The length of the Khatzer (Courtyard) shall be a hundred cubits, and the width fifty by fifty, and the height five cubits of twisted linen, and their sockets of nechoshet.

19 All the vessels of the Mishkan in all the avodah (service) thereof, and all the pegs thereof, and all the pegs of the Khatzer (Courtyard), shall be of nechoshet.

[TETZAVVEH]

20 And thou shalt command the Bnei Yisroel, that they bring thee pure pressed [ T.N. not pounded, that the oil would be pure] shemen zayit (olive oil) for the ohr, to kindle the Ner Tamid (Perpetual Lamp).

21 In the Ohel Moed outside the Parochet, which is before the Edut, Aharon and his banim shall arrange it from eved to boker before Hashem; it shall be a chukkat olam unto their dorot from the Bnei Yisroel.

Exodus 27 New International Version (NIV)

The Altar of Burnt Offering

27 “Build an altar of acacia wood, three cubits[a] high; it is to be square, five cubits long and five cubits wide.[b] Make a horn at each of the four corners, so that the horns and the altar are of one piece, and overlay the altar with bronze. Make all its utensils of bronze—its pots to remove the ashes, and its shovels, sprinkling bowls, meat forks and firepans. Make a grating for it, a bronze network, and make a bronze ring at each of the four corners of the network. Put it under the ledge of the altar so that it is halfway up the altar. Make poles of acacia wood for the altar and overlay them with bronze. The poles are to be inserted into the rings so they will be on two sides of the altar when it is carried. Make the altar hollow, out of boards. It is to be made just as you were shown on the mountain.

The Courtyard

“Make a courtyard for the tabernacle. The south side shall be a hundred cubits[c] long and is to have curtains of finely twisted linen, 10 with twenty posts and twenty bronze bases and with silver hooks and bands on the posts. 11 The north side shall also be a hundred cubits long and is to have curtains, with twenty posts and twenty bronze bases and with silver hooks and bands on the posts.

12 “The west end of the courtyard shall be fifty cubits[d] wide and have curtains, with ten posts and ten bases. 13 On the east end, toward the sunrise, the courtyard shall also be fifty cubits wide. 14 Curtains fifteen cubits[e] long are to be on one side of the entrance, with three posts and three bases, 15 and curtains fifteen cubits long are to be on the other side, with three posts and three bases.

16 “For the entrance to the courtyard, provide a curtain twenty cubits[f] long, of blue, purple and scarlet yarn and finely twisted linen—the work of an embroiderer—with four posts and four bases. 17 All the posts around the courtyard are to have silver bands and hooks, and bronze bases. 18 The courtyard shall be a hundred cubits long and fifty cubits wide,[g] with curtains of finely twisted linen five cubits[h] high, and with bronze bases. 19 All the other articles used in the service of the tabernacle, whatever their function, including all the tent pegs for it and those for the courtyard, are to be of bronze.

Oil for the Lampstand

20 “Command the Israelites to bring you clear oil of pressed olives for the light so that the lamps may be kept burning. 21 In the tent of meeting, outside the curtain that shields the ark of the covenant law, Aaron and his sons are to keep the lamps burning before the Lord from evening till morning. This is to be a lasting ordinance among the Israelites for the generations to come.
