{Exodus 38:1} And he made 6213 z8799 x853 the altar 4196 of burnt offering 5930 [of] shittim 7848 wood: 6086 five 2568 cubits 520 [was] the length 753 thereof, and five 2568 cubits 520 the breadth 7341 thereof; [it was] foursquare; 7251 z8803 and three 7969 cubits 520 the height 6967 thereof.
the altar:
This altar consisted of four boards of shittim (acacia) wood, covered with brass, and hollow in the middle; but it is supposed to have been filled up with earth when used, for it is expressly said ("An altar of earth thou shalt make unto me, and shalt sacrifice thereon thy burnt offerings, and thy peace offerings, thy sheep, and thine oxen: in all places where I record my name I will come unto thee, and I will bless thee." {Exd 20:24}) that the altar is to be of earth. As it was five cubits long and five cubits broad, and three cubits high, if the cubit be reckoned at 21 inches, it must have been eight feet nine inches square, and about five feet three inches in height. "And thou shalt make an altar [of] shittim wood, five cubits long, and five cubits broad; the altar shall be foursquare: and the height thereof [shall be] three cubits. ... Hollow with boards shalt thou make it: as it was shewed thee in the mount, so shall they make [it]." {Exd 27:1-8} + "And thou shalt set the altar of the burnt offering before the door of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation." {Exd 40:6} + "And he put the altar of burnt offering [by] the door of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation, and offered upon it the burnt offering and the meat offering; as the LORD commanded Moses." {Exd 40:29} + "Moreover he made an altar of brass, twenty cubits the length thereof, and twenty cubits the breadth thereof, and ten cubits the height thereof." {2Ch 4:1} + "And these [are] the measures of the altar after the cubits: The cubit [is] a cubit and an hand breadth; even the bottom [shall be] a cubit, and the breadth a cubit, and the border thereof by the edge thereof round about [shall be] a span: and this [shall be] the higher place of the altar. ... And the settle [shall be] fourteen [cubits] long and fourteen broad in the four squares thereof; and the border about it [shall be] half a cubit; and the bottom thereof [shall be] a cubit about; and his stairs shall look toward the east." {Ezk 43:13-17} + "For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: ... That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit." {Rom 8:3-4} + "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service." {Rom 12:1} + "Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;" {Hbr 3:1} + "How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?" {Hbr 9:14} + "We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle." {Hbr 13:10} + "Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ." {1Pe 2:5}
foursquare; and three cubits the height thereof:
"And the altar [shall be] twelve [cubits] long, twelve broad, square in the four squares thereof." {Ezk 43:16} + "All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out." {Jhn 6:37} + "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever." {Hbr 13:8} + "And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal." {Rev 21:16}
