The altar of incense.
Exodus 30:1 And thou shalt make an aulter for sweete incense: of Sittim wood shalte thou make it. Exodus 30:2 A cubite long, and a cubite brode, eue foure square shall it be, and two cubites hye: the hornes therof shall proceede out of it. Exodus 30:3 And thou shalt ouerlaye it with fine gold, both the ruffe & the walles round about, and his hornes also: and shalt make vnto it a crowne of gold round about. Exodus 30:4 And two golden ringes shalt thou make to it on either side, euen vnder the crowne, that they maye be as places for the barres to beare it withall. Exodus 30:5 And thou shalt make the barres of Sittim wood, & couer them with gold. Exodus 30:6 And thou shalt put it before the vayle that is by the arke of testimonie before the mercie seate, that is, vpon the testimonie where I wyll meete with thee. Exodus 30:7 And Aaron shall burne theron sweete incense euery mornyng when he dresseth the lampes, euen then shall he burne it. Exodus 30:8 And lykewise at euen when he setteth vp the lampes he shall burne incense, & this incensing shall be perpetually before the Lord throughout your generations. Exodus 30:9 Ye shall offer no straunge incense thereon nor burnt sacrifice nor meate offeryng, neither powre any drinke offeryng thereon. Exodus 30:10 And Aaron shall reconsile vppon the hornes of it once in a yere, with the blood of the sinne offeryng of reconsiling, euen once in the yere shal he reconsile vpon it through your generations: it is most holy vnto the Lorde.
The ransom of souls.
Exodus 30:11 And the Lorde spake vnto Moyses, saying: Exodus 30:12 If thou takest the sume of the childre of Israel after theyr number, they shal geue euery man a recosiling of his soule vnto the Lorde when thou numbrest them, that there be no plague amongst them when thou nubrest them. Exodus 30:13 And thus much shall euery man geue that goeth into the number: halfe a sicle after the sicle of the sanctuarie. A sicle is twentie halfpence: an halfe sicle shalbe the heaue offeryng of the Lorde. Exodus 30:14 All that are numbred from twentie yere olde and aboue, shall geue a heaue offeryng vnto the Lorde. Exodus 30:15 The riche shall not passe, and the poore shall not go vnder halfe a sicle, but ye shall geue an heaue offeryng vnto the Lorde, that he may haue mercie on your soules. Exodus 30:16 And thou shalt take the reconsilyng monye of the children of Israel, and shalt put it vnto the vse of the tabernacle of the congregation, that it may be a memoriall vnto the chyldren of Israel before the Lord, that he may haue mercie vpon your soules.
The brasen laver.
Exodus 30:17 And the Lorde spake vnto Moyses, saying: Exodus 30:18 Thou shalt make a lauer of brasse, & his foot also of brasse, to washe withall, and shalt put it betwene the tabernacle of the congregation and the aulter, and put water therin. Exodus 30:19 For Aaron and his sonnes shall washe their handes and their feete therin. Exodus 30:20 Euen when they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, or when they go in to the aulter to minister and to burne the Lordes offeryng, they shall washe them selues with water, lest they dye. Exodus 30:21 Likewise they shal washe their handes & their feete, lest they dye: and it shalbe an ordinaunce vnto them for euer, both vnto hym & his seede, throughout their generations.
The holy anointing oil.
Exodus 30:22 And the Lorde spake vnto Moyses, saying: Exodus 30:23 Take vnto thee principal spices, of the most pure Mirrhe fiue hudreth sicles, of sweete Synamond halfe so much, euen two hundreth and fiftie sicles, of sweete Calamus two hundreth and fiftie sicles. Exodus 30:24 Of Cassia fiue hundreth sicles, after the waight of the sanctuarie, and of oyle Olyue an hyn: Exodus 30:25 And thou shalt make of the oyle an holy oyntment, euen an oyntment compound after the craft of the apoticarie: Exodus 30:26 It shalbe the oyle of holy oyntment, and thou shalt annoynt the tabernacle of the congregation therwith, and the arke of the testimonie, Exodus 30:27 And the table and al his apparell, and the candlesticke and all his vessels, and the aulter of incense, Exodus 30:28 And the aulter of burnt sacrifice with all his vessels, and the lauer & his foote. Exodus 30:29 And thou shalt sanctifie them, that they may be most holye: whatsoeuer toucheth them, shalbe sanctified. Exodus 30:30 And thou shalt anoynt Aaron and his sonnes, and consecrate them, that they may minister vnto me in the priestes office. Exodus 30:31 And thou shalt speake vnto the children of Israel, saying: This shalbe an holy oynting oyle vnto me, throughout your generations. Exodus 30:32 Upon mans fleshe shall it not be powred, neither shal ye make any other after the makyng of it: for it is holy, and shalbe holy vnto you. Exodus 30:33 Whosoeuer maketh lyke that, or whosoeuer putteth any of it vpon a strauger, shall perishe from amongst his people.
The composition of the perfume.
Exodus 30:34 And the Lorde sayde vnto Moyses: Take vnto thee sweete spices, Starte, Onycha, sweete Galbanum: these spices with pure Frankensence, of eche a lyke wayght. Exodus 30:35 And make of them sweete smellyng incense, after the craft of the apoticarie, mingled together, pure and holy. Exodus 30:36 And beate it to powder, and put of it before [the arke] of the testimonie in the tabernacle of the congregation, where I wyll meete with thee: it shalbe vnto you most holy. Exodus 30:37 And you shal not make to your selues, after the makyng of that incense which thou shalt make: it shalbe vnto you holy for the Lorde. Exodus 30:38 Whosoeuer shall make lyke vnto that to smell thereto, shall perishe from amongst his people.
