And they shall take away the ashes from the altar, and spread a purple cloth thereon:
They are to place over this a covering made of manatee skin, spread a solid blue cloth on top, and insert its poles.
"They are to spread a blue cloth over the table of the Presence and place the plates and cups on it, as well as the bowls and pitchers for the drink offering. The regular bread [offering] is to be on it.
They are to spread a scarlet cloth over them, cover them with a covering made of manatee skin, and insert the poles [in the table].
"They are to take a blue cloth and cover the lampstand used for light, with its lamps, snuffers, and firepans, as well as its jars of oil by which they service it.
Make its pots for removing ashes, and its shovels, basins, meat forks, and firepans; make all its utensils of bronze.
Construct a grate for it of bronze mesh, and make four bronze rings on the mesh at its four corners.
Set it below, under the altar's ledge, so that the mesh comes halfway up the altar.
They made specially woven garments for ministry in the sanctuary, and the holy garments for Aaron from the blue, purple, and scarlet yarn, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.
and the specially woven garments for ministering in the sanctuary, the holy garments for Aaron the priest and the garments for his sons to serve as priests.
The fire on the altar is to be kept burning; it must not go out. Every morning the priest will burn wood on the fire. He is to arrange the burnt offering on the fire and burn the fat portions from the fellowship offerings on it.
Fire must be kept burning on the altar continually; it must not go out.
