Altar of Incense


Twice a day, morning and afternoon, the priests would burn spices of incense on the altar.

openquoteH  And thou shalt make an altar to burn incense upon, of shittim wood shalt thou make it. A cubit shall be its length, and a cubit its breadth, foursquare shall it be; and two cubits shall be its height; from itself shall its horns be. And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, its top, and its sides round about, and its horns; and thou shalt make unto it a crown of gold round about. (Exodus 30:1-3 [Leeser]) closequoteH
