the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
first day of the first month shalt thou set up the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.
3And thou shalt put therein the ark of the testimony, and cover the ark with the
4And thou shalt bring in the table,
and set in order the things that are to be set in order upon it; and thou shalt bring in the candlestick, and light the lamps
5And thou shalt set the altar of
gold for the incense before the ark of the testimony, and put the hanging of the door to the tabernacle.
6And thou shalt set the altar of the burnt offering before the door of the tabernacle
of the tent of the congregation.
shalt set the laver between the tent of the congregation and the altar, and shalt put water therein.
8And thou shalt set up the court round about, and hang up the hanging at the court
9And thou shalt take the anointing oil,
and anoint the tabernacle, and all that is therein, and shalt hallow it, and all the vessels thereof: and it shall be holy.
10And thou shalt anoint the altar of the burnt
offering, and all his vessels, and sanctify the altar: and it shall be an altar most holy.
11And thou shalt anoint the laver and his foot, and sanctify it.
12And thou shalt bring Aaron and his sons unto the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation, and wash them with water.
thou shalt put upon Aaron the holy garments, and anoint him, and sanctify him; that he may minister unto me in the priest's
14And thou shalt bring his sons, and
clothe them with coats:
15And thou shalt anoint
them, as thou didst anoint their father, that they may minister unto me in the priest's office: for their anointing shall
surely be an everlasting priesthood throughout their generations.
16Thus did Moses: according to all that the LORD commanded him, so did he.
17And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on the first day of
the month, that the tabernacle was reared up.
Moses reared up the tabernacle, and fastened his sockets, and set up the boards thereof, and put in the bars thereof, and
reared up his pillars.
19And he spread abroad
the tent over the tabernacle, and put the covering of the tent above upon it; as the LORD commanded Moses.
20And he took and put the testimony into the ark, and set the staves on the ark,
and put the mercy seat above upon the ark:
he brought the ark into the tabernacle, and set up the vail of the covering, and covered the ark of the testimony; as the
LORD commanded Moses.
22And he put the table
in the tent of the congregation, upon the side of the tabernacle northward, without the vail.
23And he set the bread in order upon it before the LORD; as the LORD had commanded
24And he put the candlestick in the
tent of the congregation, over against the table, on the side of the tabernacle southward.
25And he lighted the lamps before the LORD; as the LORD commanded Moses.
26And he put the golden altar in the tent of the congregation before the vail:
27And he burnt sweet incense thereon; as the
LORD commanded Moses.
28And he set up the
hanging at the door of the tabernacle.
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.
30And he set the laver between the tent of the congregation and the altar, and put water there, to
31And Moses and Aaron and his
sons washed their hands and their feet thereat:
they went into the tent of the congregation, and when they came near unto the altar, they washed; as the LORD commanded Moses.
33And he reared up the court round about the
tabernacle and the altar, and set up the hanging of the court gate. So Moses finished the work.
34Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the LORD
filled the tabernacle.
35And Moses was not
able to enter into the tent of the congregation, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
36And when the cloud was taken up from over
the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys:
37But if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up.
38For the cloud of the LORD was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it
by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.
