Listen to this Kathan Kawraw
by the chaciyd with some Hebrew pronunciation
1 And thou shalt make an altar to
burn incense upon: [of] shittim wood shalt thou make it.
2 A cubit [shall be] the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof;
foursquare shall it be: and two cubits [shall be] the height thereof: the horns
thereof [shall be] of the same.
3 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, the top thereof, and the sides
thereof round about, and the horns thereof; and thou shalt make unto it a crown
of gold round about.
4 And two golden rings shalt thou make to it under the crown of it, by the two
corners thereof, upon the two sides of it shalt thou make [it]; and they shall
be for places for the staves to bear it withal.
5 And thou shalt make the staves [of] shittim wood, and overlay them with gold.
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.
7 And Aaron shall burn thereon sweet incense every morning: when he dresseth the
lamps, he shall burn incense upon it.
8 And when Aaron lighteth the lamps at even, he shall burn incense upon it, a
perpetual incense before YAHUAH throughout your generations.
9 Ye shall offer no strange incense thereon, nor burnt sacrifice, nor meat
offering; neither shall ye pour drink offering thereon.
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 the year shall he make
atonement upon it throughout your generations: it [is] most holy unto YAHUAH.
11 And YAHUAH spake unto Mosheh, saying,
12 When thou takest the sum of the children of Yisrael after their number, then
shall they give every man a ransom for his soul unto YAHUAH, when thou numberest
them; that there be no plague among them, when [thou] numberest them.
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:)
an half shekel [shall be] the offering of YAHUAH.
14 Every one that passeth among them that are numbered, from twenty years old
and above, shall give an offering unto YAHUAH.
15 The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less than half a
shekel, when [they] give an offering unto YAHUAH, to make an atonement for your
16 And thou shalt take the atonement money of the children of Yisrael, and shalt
appoint it for the service of the tabernacle of the congregation; that it may be
a memorial unto the children of Yisrael before YAHUAH, to make an atonement for
17 And YAHUAH spake unto Mosheh, saying,
18 Thou shalt also make a laver [of] brass, and his foot [also of] brass, to
wash [withal]: and thou shalt put it between the tabernacle of the congregation
and the altar, and thou shalt put water therein.
19 For Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet thereat:
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 unto YAHUAH:
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
22 Moreover YAHUAH spake unto Mosheh, saying,
23 Take thou also unto thee principal spices, of pure myrrh five hundred
[shekels], and of sweet cinnamon half so much, [even] two hundred and fifty
[shekels], and of sweet calamus two hundred and fifty [shekels],
24 And of cassia five hundred [shekels], after the shekel of the sanctuary, and
of oil olive an hin:
25 And thou shalt make it an oil of holy ointment, an ointment compound after
the art of the apothecary: it shall be an holy anointing oil.
26 And thou shalt anoint the tabernacle of the congregation therewith, and the
ark of the testimony,
27 And the table and all his vessels, and the candlestick and his vessels, and
the altar of incense,
28 And the altar of burnt offering with all his vessels, and the laver and his
29 And thou shalt sanctify them, that they may be most holy: whatsoever toucheth
them shall be holy.
30 And thou shalt anoint Aaron and his sons, and consecrate them, that [they]
may minister unto me in the priest's office.
31 And thou shalt speak unto the children of Yisrael, saying, This shall be an
holy anointing oil unto me throughout your generations.
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 unto
33 Whosoever compoundeth [any] like it, or whosoever putteth [any] of it upon a
stranger, shall even be cut off from his people.
34 And YAHUAH said unto Mosheh, Take unto thee sweet spices, stacte, and onycha,
and galbanum; [these] sweet spices with pure frankincense: of each shall there
be a like [weight]:
35 And thou shalt make it a perfume, a confection after the art of the
apothecary, tempered together, pure [and] holy:
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 unto you most holy.
37 And [as for] the perfume which thou shalt make, ye shall not make to
yourselves according to the composition thereof: it shall be unto thee holy for
38 Whosoever shall make like unto that, to smell thereto, shall even be cut off
from his people.
