Exodus 30:11  Exodus 30:38

11 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

12 When you take the sum of the children of Israel, according to those of them who are numbered, then every man shall give a ransom for himself to Jehovah, when you number them, that there may be no plague among them when you number them.

13 This they shall give, everyone enrolled with those who are numbered, half a shekel according to the shekel of the sanctuary (the shekel is twenty gerahs), half a shekel as a heave offering to Jehovah.

14 Everyone enrolled with those who are numbered, from twenty years old and over, shall give the heave offering of Jehovah.

15 The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less than the half shekel, when you give the heave offering of Jehovah to make expiation for your souls.

16 And you shall take the expiation silver from the children of Israel and shall give it for the service of the Tent of Meeting, that it may be a memorial for the children of Israel before Jehovah to make expiation for your souls.

17 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

18 You shall also make a laver of bronze, with its base of bronze, for washing. And you shall put it between the Tent of Meeting and the altar, and you shall put water in it.

19 And Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet with water from it;

20 When they go into the Tent of Meeting, they shall wash with water, that they may not die; or when they come near to the altar to minister, to burn an offering by fire to Jehovah,

21 Then they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they may not die. And it shall be a perpetual statute to them, for him and for his seed throughout their generations.

22 Moreover Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

23 You also take the finest spices: of flowing myrrh five hundred shekels, and of fragrant cinnamon half as much, two hundred fifty shekels, and of fragrant calamus two hundred fifty shekels,

24 And of cassia five hundred shekels, according to the shekel of the sanctuary, and a hin of olive oil.

25 And you shall make it a holy anointing oil, a perfume compounded according to the perfumer’s art; it shall be a holy anointing oil.

26 And with it you shall anoint the Tent of Meeting and the Ark of the Testimony,

27 And the table and all its utensils, and the lampstand and its utensils, and the altar of incense,

28 And the altar of burnt offering with all its utensils, and the laver and its base.

29 Thus you shall sanctify them that they may be most holy; whatever touches them shall be holy.

30 And you shall anoint Aaron and his sons and sanctify them that they may serve Me as priests.

31 And you shall speak to the children of Israel, saying, This shall be a holy anointing oil to Me throughout your generations.

32 Upon the flesh of man it shall not be poured, nor shall you make any like it, according to its composition; it is holy, and it shall be holy to you.

33 Whoever compounds any like it or whoever puts any of it upon a stranger, he shall be cut off from his people.

34 And Jehovah said to Moses, Take fragrant spices – stacte and onycha and galbanum – fragrant spices with pure frankincense; there shall be an equal part of each;

35 And you shall make of it incense, a perfume according to the perfumer’s art, seasoned with salt, pure and holy.

36 And you shall beat some of it very fine, and put some of it before the testimony in the Tent of Meeting, where I will meet with you; it shall be to you most holy.

37 And the incense which you shall make, you shall not make for yourselves according to its composition; it shall be holy to you for Jehovah.

38 Whoever shall make any like it, to smell it, shall be cut off from his people.
