and from the lesser ledge to the greater ledge shall be four cubits, and the width a cubit.

The altar hearth shall be twelve cubits long by twelve wide, square in its four sides.

and the border about it shall be half a cubit; and its bottom shall be a cubit around; and its steps shall look toward the east.”
