Exodus - Chapter 30
3 You will overlay its top, its sides all round and its horns with pure gold and make a gold moulding to go all round.
6 'You will put it in front of the curtain by the ark of Testimony, in front of the mercy-seat which is on the Testimony, where I shall meet you.
10 Once a year, Aaron will perform the rite of expiation on the horns of the altar; once a year, on the Day of Expiation, with the blood of the sacrifice for sin, he will make expiation for himself, for all your generations to come. It is especially holy for Yahweh.'
11 Yahweh then spoke to Moses and said,
14 Everyone subject to the census, that is to say of twenty years and over, will pay the sum set aside for Yahweh.
17 Yahweh then spoke to Moses and said,
20 Whenever they are to enter the Tent of Meeting, they will wash, to avoid incurring death; and whenever they approach the altar for their service, to burn an offering for Yahweh,
22 Yahweh spoke further to Moses and said,
24 five hundred shekels (reckoning by the sanctuary shekel) of cassia, and one hin of olive oil.
26 With it you will anoint the Tent of Meeting and the ark of the Testimony,
28 the altar of burnt offerings and all its accessories, and the basin with its stand,
32 It must not be used for anointing the human body, nor may you make any of the same mixture. It is a holy thing; you will regard it as holy.
37 You may not make any incense of similar composition for your own use. You will regard it as holy, reserved for Yahweh Anyone who makes up the same thing to use as perfume will be outlawed from his people.'
