Exodus 30


30:1 And thou shalt make an altar to burn incense upon: [of]
 shittim wood shalt thou make it.
30:2 A cubit [shall be] its length, and a cubit its breadth;
 foursquare shall it be; and two cubits [shall be] its hight:
 its horns [shall be] of the same.
30:3 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, its top, and its
 sides round about, and its horns; and thou shalt make to it a
 crown of gold round about.
30:4 And two golden rings shalt thou make to it under the crown
 of it, by its two corners, upon the two sides of it shalt thou
 make [it]; and they shall be for places for the staffs to bear
 it with.
30:5 And thou shalt make the staffs of shittim wood, and overlay
 them with gold.
30:6 And thou shalt put it before the vail that [is] by the ark
 of the testimony, before the mercy-seat that [is] over the
 testimony, where I will meet with thee.
30:7 And Aaron shall burn upon it sweet incense every morning:
 when he dresseth the lamps, he shall burn incense upon it.
30:8 And when Aaron lighteth the lamps at evening, he shall burn
 incense upon it; a perpetual incense before the LORD,
 throughout your generations.
30:9 Ye shall offer no strange incense upon it, nor
 burnt-sacrifice, nor meat-offering; neither shall ye pour
 drink-offering upon it.
30:10 And Aaron shall make an atonement upon the horns of it
 once in a year, with the blood of the sin-offering of
 atonements: once in a year shall he make atonement upon it
 throughout your generations: it [is] most holy to the LORD.
30:11 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
30:12 When thou takest the sum of the children of Israel after
 their number, then shall they give every man a ransom for his
 soul to the LORD, when thou numberest them: that there may be
 no plague among them, when [thou] numberest them.
30:13 This they shall give, every one that passeth among them
 that are numbered, half a shekel, after the shekel of the
 sanctuary: (a shekel [is] twenty gerahs:) a half shekel [shall
 be] the offering of the LORD.
30:14 Every one that passeth among them that are numbered from
 twenty years old and above, shall give an offering to the LORD.
30:15 The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give
 less than half a shekel, when [they] give an offering to the
 LORD to make an atonement for your souls.
30:16 And thou shalt take the atonement-money of the children of
 Israel, and shalt appoint it for the service of the tabernacle
 of the congregation; that it may be a memorial to the children
 of Israel before the LORD, to make an atonement for your souls.
30:17 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
30:18 Thou shalt also make a laver [of] brass, and its foot
 [also of] brass, to wash [in]: [and] thou shalt put it between
 the tabernacle of the congregation and the altar, and thou
 shalt put water therein.
30:19 For Aaron and their sons shall wash their hands and their
 feet thereat:
30:20 When they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they
 shall wash with water, that they die not: or when they come
 near to the altar to minister, to burn offering made by fire to
 the LORD.
30:21 So they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they
 die not: and it shall be a statute for ever to them, [even] to
 him and to his seed throughout their generations.
30:22 Moreover the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
30:23 Take thou also to thee principal spices, of pure myrrh
 five hundred [shekels], and of sweet cinnamon half as much,
 [even] two hundred and fifty [shekels], and of sweet calamus
 two hundred and fifty [shekels],
30:24 And of cassia five hundred [shekels], after the shekel of
 the sanctuary, and of olive-oil a hin:
30:25 And thou shalt make it an oil of holy ointment, an
 ointment compound after the art of the apothecary: it shall be
 a holy anointing oil.
30:26 And thou shalt anoint the tabernacle of the congregation
 with it, and the ark of the testimony,
30:27 And the table and all its vessels, and the candlestick and
 its vessels, and the altar of incense,
30:28 And the altar of burnt-offering with all its vessels, and
 the laver and its foot.
30:29 And thou shalt sanctify them, that they may be most holy:
 whatever toucheth them shall be holy.
30:30 And thou shalt anoint Aaron and his sons, and consecrate
 them, that [they] may minister to me in the priest's office.
30:31 And thou shalt speak to the children of Israel, saying,
 This shall be a holy anointing oil to me, throughout your
 generations.
30:32 Upon man's flesh shall it not be poured, neither shall ye
 make [any other] like it, after the composition of it: it [is]
 holy, [and] it shall be holy to you.
30:33 Whoever compoundeth [any] like it, or whoever putteth
 [any] of it upon a stranger, shall even be cut off from his
 people.
30:34 And the LORD said to Moses, Take to thee sweet spices,
 stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; [these] sweet spices with
 pure frankincense: of each shall there be a like [weight]:
30:35 And thou shalt make it a perfume, a confection after the
 art of the apothecary, tempered together, pure [and] holy:
30:36 And thou shalt beat [some] of it very small, and put of it
 before the testimony in the tabernacle of the congregation,
 where I will meet with thee: it shall be to you most holy:
30:37 And [as for] the perfume which thou shalt make, ye shall
 not make to yourselves according to its composition: it shall
 be to thee holy for the LORD.
30:38 Whoever shall make the like to that, to smell thereto,
 shall even be cut off from his people.
