The Bronze Altar
The bronze altar for burnt offerings (Ex. 27:1–8; 38:1–7) stood in the outer courtyard with its poles removed. It was a hollow wooden box, overlaid with bronze, measuring 4.5 feet high, 7.5 feet long, and 7.5 feet wide (1.4 m x 2.3 m x 2.3 m). There was a bronze grating on the top and on the sides of the altar.
