12 This is the law of the Temple: The whole area surrounding it on the top of the mountain is most holy. This is the law of the Temple.

The Altar

13 “These are the measurements of the altar in cubits using the long measurement[a]: There was a gutter all the way around the base of the altar. It was 1 cubit[b] deep, and each side was 1 cubit wide. There was a rim around the edge 1 span[c] high. This is how tall the altar was: 14 From the ground to the lower ledge, the base measured 2 cubits.[d] It was 1 cubit wide. It measured 4 cubits[e] from the smaller ledge to the larger ledge. It was 2 cubits wide.
