And you shall overlay it with bronze. 3 "Also you shall make its pans to receive its ashes, and its shovels and its basins and its forks and its firepans; you shall make all its utensils of bronze. 4 "You shall make a grate for it, a network of bronze; and on the network you shall make four bronze rings at its four corners. 5 "You shall put it under the rim of the altar beneath, that the network may be midway up the altar. 6 "And you shall make poles for the altar, poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with bronze. 7 "The poles shall be put in the rings, and the poles shall be on the two sides of the altar to bear it. 8 "You shall make it hollow with boards; b as it was shown you on the mountain, so shall they make it.
