CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
The compass of the altar - A shelf or projecting ledge, of convenient width, carried round the altar half way between the top and the base. It was supported all round its outer edge by a vertical net-like grating of bronze that rested on the ground.
"You shall make for it a grating of network of bronze, and on the net you shall make four bronze rings at its four corners.
"You shall make poles for the altar, poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with bronze.
He made for the altar a grating of bronze network beneath, under its ledge, reaching halfway up.
"From the base on the ground to the lower ledge shall be two cubits and the width one cubit; and from the smaller ledge to the larger ledge shall be four cubits and the width one cubit.
