The Incense Mizbeach (מזבּח Altar)

30:1(vii) And you shall make an Mizbeach (מזבּח Altar) to burn ketoreth (incense) upon: [of] Shittiyim (acacia שׁטּים) wood shall you make it.

30:2 A cubit (אמּה) [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.

30:3 And you shall overlay it with pure zahav (זהב), the top thereof, and the sides thereof round about, and the horns thereof; and you shall make to it a crown of zahav (זהב) round about.

30:4 And two zahav (זהב) rings shall you make to it under the crown of it, by the two corners thereof, upon the two sides of it shall you make [it]; and they shall be for places for the staves to bear it withal.

30:5 And you shall make the staves [of] Shittiyim (acacia שׁטּים)  wood, and overlay them with zahav (זהב).

30:6 And you shall put it before the poreketh (פּרכvail) that [is] by the Aron Ha Edut (Ark of testimony), before the kapporet that [is] over the edut (testimony), where I will meet with you.

30:7 And Aharon shall burn thereon sweet ketoreth (incense) every morning: when he dresseth the lamps, he shall burn ketoreth (incense) upon it.

30:8(Maftir) And when Aharon lighteth the lamps at even, he shall burn ketoreth (incense) upon it, a perpetual ketoreth (incense) before ADONAI (יהוה) throughout your dorot (generations).

30:9 You shall offer no strange ketoret  zarah (incense) thereon, nor burnt sacrifice, nor Mincha; neither shall you pour nesek (נסך libation, drink offering) thereon.

30:10 And Aharon shall make an kapporah (atonement) upon the karenot (horns) of it once in a year with the blood of the chattat ha Kippurim: once in the year shall he make kapporah upon it throughout your dorot (generations): it [is] most kadosh to ADONAI (יהוה).

30:11 (i)

And ADONAI(יהוה) spoke to Mosheh, saying:

The Redemption Money estimate $1250.00 The Census Tax

Silver speaks of redemption, which is the foundation of our faith. Redemption is needed by all and is available to all on the same terms

30:12 כִּ֣י תִשָּׂ֞א אֶת־רֹ֥אשׁ בְּנֵֽי־יִשְׂרָאֵל֮ לִפְקֻדֵיהֶם֒ וְנָ֨תְנ֜וּ אִ֣ישׁ כֹּ֧פֶר נַפְשֹׁ֛ו לַיהוָ֖ה בִּפְקֹ֣ד אֹתָ֑ם וְלֹא־יִהְיֶ֥ה בָהֶ֛ם נֶ֖גֶף בִּפְקֹ֥ד אֹתָֽם׃

Ki tissa et-rosh benei-Yisrael lifkudeihem venatnu ish kofer nafsho laADONAI bifkod otam velo-yihyeh vahem negef bifkod otam:

When you take the sum of the Benai Yisrael after their number, then shall they give every man a ransom for his soul to ADONAI (יהוה), when you number them; that there be no plague among them, when you number them.

30:13 זֶ֣ה׀ יִתְּנ֗וּ כָּל־הָעֹבֵר֙ עַל־הַפְּקֻדִ֔ים מַחֲצִ֥ית הַשֶּׁ֖קֶל בְּשֶׁ֣קֶל הַקֹּ֑דֶשׁ עֶשְׂרִ֤ים גֵּרָה֙ הַשֶּׁ֔קֶל מַחֲצִ֣ית הַשֶּׁ֔קֶל תְּרוּמָ֖ה לַֽיהוָֽה׃

Zeh yitenu, kol-ha'over al-hapekudim, machatzit hashekel beshekel hakodesh; esrim gerah hashekel, machatzit hashekel, terumah lAdonai
Everyone subject to the census is to pay as an offering to Adonai half a shekel [one-fifth of an ounce of silver]- by the standard of the sanctuary shekel (a shekel equals twenty gerahs).

30:14 Everyone included among those who are numbered, from twenty years old and above, shall give the contribution to ADONAI (יהוה).

30:15 הֶֽעָשִׁ֣יר לֹֽא־יַרְבֶּ֗ה וְהַדַּל֙ לֹ֣א יַמְעִ֔יט מִֽמַּחֲצִ֖ית הַשָּׁ֑קֶל לָתֵת֙ אֶת־תְּרוּמַ֣ת יְהוָ֔ה לְכַפֵּ֖ר עַל־נַפְשֹׁתֵיכֶֽם׃

He'ashir lo-yarbeh, vehadal lo yam'it, mimachatzit hashakel; latet et-terumat Adonai lechaper al-nafshoteichem.
"The rich shall not pay more and the poor shall not pay less than the half shekel, when you give the contribution to Adonai to make atonement for yourselves.

30:16 And you shall take the kapporah (atonement) money of the benai Yisrael, and shall appoint it for the service of the Ohel Moed (tent of meeting); that it may be a memorial to the benai Yisrael before ADONAI (יהוה), to make an kapporah (atonement) for your souls.


And ADONAI (יהוה) spoke to Mosheh, saying:

The Laver Kiyor (כּיּור)

30:18 You shall also make a Kiyor (כּיּור) [of] nechoshet (כּיּור brass), and his foot [also of] nechoshet (brass), to wash [withal]: and you shall put it between the Ohel Moed (tent of meeting) and the Mizbeach (מזבּח Altar), and you shall put mayim therein.

30:19 For Aharon and his banim shall wash their hands and their feet thereat:

30:20 When they go into the Ohel Moed (tent of meeting), they shall wash with mayim, that they die not; or when they come near to the Mizbeach (מזבּח Altar) to minister, to Olah made by fire to ADONAI (יהוה):

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 dorot (generations).

30:22 Moreover ADONAI (יהוה) spoke to Mosheh, saying:

How to make Shemen (oil)?

Oil in the Scripture is often a type of the Ruach HaKodesh. The anointing of the Kohenim signifies the necessity for enduement of the Ruach in all divine Service.

"Take the best spices — 500 shekels of myrrh [12 1/2 pounds], half this amount (250 shekels) of aromatic cinnamon [6 1/4 pounds], 250 shekels of aromatic cane,

Exo 30:24  500 shekels of cassia (use the sanctuary standard), and one gallon of olive oil — 

30:23 Take you also to you principal spices--- of pure myrrh 500 [shekels], and of sweet Kinnamon (קנּמון cinnamon) half so much, [even] two hundred and fifty [shekels], and of sweet calamus two hundred and fifty [shekels],

30:24 And of Kiddah (קדּה cassia) five hundred [shekels], after the shekel of ha Mikdash, and of shemen olive an hin (הין):

30:25 And you shall make it an shemen of kadosh ointment, an ointment compound after the art of the perfumer (oinment): it shall be an kadosh mashach (anoint משׁח) shemen.

30:26 And you shall mashach (anoint משׁח) the Ohel Moed (tent of meeting) therewith, and the Aron Ha Edut (Ark of testimony),

30:27 And the table and all his vessels, and the menorah (מנרה) and his vessels, and the mizbeach Ketoret,

30:28 And the Mizbeach (מזבּח Altar) of Olah with all his vessels, and the laver and his foot.

30:29 And you shall sanctify them, that they may be most kadosh: whatsoever touches them shall be kadosh.

30:30 And you shall mashach (anoint משׁח) Aharon and his banim, and consecrate them, that [they] may minister to Me in the Kohen's office.

30:31 And you shall speak to the benai Yisrael, saying, This shall be an kadosh mishchat (anointing משׁח) shemen to Me throughout your dorot (generations).

30:32 Upon man's flesh shall it not be poured, neither shall you make [any other] like it, after the composition of it: it [is] kadosh, [and] it shall be kadosh to you.

30:33 Whosoever compound [any] like it, or whosoever putteth [any] of it upon a stranger, shall even be cut off from his people.

How to Make the Ketoreth (incense)?

30:34 And ADONAI (יהוה) said to Mosheh:

Take to you sweet spices, nataf (נטף stacte), and Shekleth (שׁחלת , onycha), and Chelvenah (חלבּנה galbanum); [these] sweet spices with pure lebonah (לבנה frankincense): of each shall there be a like [weight]:

30:35 And you shall make it a perfume, a confection after the art of the perfumer, tempered together, pure [and] kadosh:

30:36 And you shall beat [some] of it very small, and put of it before the edut (testimony) in the Ohel Moed (tent of meeting), where I will meet with thee: it shall be to you most kadosh.

30:37 And [as for] the perfume which you shall make, you shall not make to yourselves according to the composition thereof: it shall be to you kadosh for ADONAI (יהוה).

30:38 Whosoever shall make like to that, to smell thereto, shall even be cut off from His people.
