Making the Altar of Burnt Offering

1He made the altar of burnt offering of acacia wood. It was square. Its length was five cubits, its breadth was five cubits, and its height was three cubits.
  2He made its horns on its four corners. Its horns were of one piece with it and he overlaid it with bronze.
 

3He made all the vessels of the altar, the pots, the shovels, the basins, the forks, and the fire pans. He made all its vessels of bronze.
  4He made for the altar a grating of a network of bronze, under the ledge around it beneath reaching halfway up.
  5He cast four rings for the four ends of bronze grating to be places for the poles.
  6He made the poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with bronze.
  7He put the poles into the rings on the sides of the altar with which to carry it. He made it hollow with planks.
 

Making the Bronze Basin

8He made the basin of bronze, and its base of bronze, out of the mirrors of the ministering women who ministered at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting.
 

Making the Courtyard

9He made the court: for the south side southward the hangings of the court were of fine twined linen, 100 cubits;
  10their pillars were twenty and their sockets twenty of bronze; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets were of silver.
  11For the north side 100 cubits, their pillars twenty and their sockets twenty of bronze; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets of silver.
  12For the west side were hangings of fifty cubits, their pillars ten and their sockets ten; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets of silver.
  13For the east side eastward fifty cubits.
  14The hangings for the one side were 15 cubits; their pillars three, and their sockets three,
  15and so for the other side. On this hand and that hand by the gate of the court were hangings of 15 cubits; their pillars three, and their sockets three.
  16All the hangings around the court were of fine twined linen.
  17The sockets for the pillars were of bronze. The hooks of the pillars and their fillets were of silver, and the overlaying of their capitals of silver, and all the pillars of the court were filleted with silver.
 

18The screen for the gate of the court was the work of the embroiderer, of blue, purple, scarlet, and fine twined linen. Twenty cubits was the length, and the height in the breadth was five cubits, like to the hangings of the court.
  19Their pillars were four and their sockets four of bronze; their hooks of silver, and the overlaying of their capitals and their fillets of silver.
  20All the pins of the tabernacle and around the court were of bronze.
 

Inventory of Materials

21This is the amount of material used for the tabernacle, even the Tabernacle of the Testimony, as they were counted according to the commandment of Moses for the service of the Levites by the hand of Ithamar, the son of Aaron the priest.
  22Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur of the tribe of Judah, made all that Yahweh commanded Moses.
  23With him was Oholiab, the son of Ahisamach of the tribe of Dan, an engraver and a skillful workman and an embroiderer in blue, in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen.
 

24All the gold that was used for the work in all the work of the sanctuary, even the gold of the offering, was 29 talents and 730 shekels, according to the shekel of the sanctuary.
  25The silver of those who were numbered of the congregation was 100 talents and 1,775 shekels, according to the shekel of the sanctuary:
  26a beka a head, that is, half a shekel, according to the shekel of the sanctuary, for everyone who passed over to those who were numbered, from twenty years old and upward, 603,550 men.
  27The 100 talents of silver were for casting the sockets of the sanctuary and the sockets of the veil; 100 sockets for the 100 talents, a talent for a socket.
  28Of the 1,775 shekels he made hooks for the pillars, overlaid their capitals and made fillets for them.
 

29The bronze of the offering was seventy talents and 2,400 shekels.
  30With this he made the sockets to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, the bronze altar, the bronze grating for it, all the vessels of the altar,
  31the sockets around the court, the sockets of the gate of the court, all the pins of the tabernacle, and all the pins around the court.
