The Tabernacle Completed

40Then the LORD said to Moses,H3068H1696H4872H559 2"Set up the Tabernacle on the first day of the new year.H7223H3117H259H2320H6965H4908H168H4150 3Place the Ark of the Covenant inside, and install the inner curtain to enclose the Ark within the Most Holy Place.H7760H8033H727H5715H5526H727H6532 4Then bring in the table, and arrange the utensils on it. And bring in the lampstand, and set up the lamps.H935H7979H6186H6187H935H4501H5927H5216 5"Place the gold incense altar in front of the Ark of the Covenant. Then hang the curtain at the entrance of the Tabernacle.H5414H4196H2091H7004H6440H727H5715H7760H4539H6607H4908 6Place the altar of burnt offering in front of the Tabernacle entrance.H5414H4196H5930H6440H6607H4908H168H4150 7Set the washbasin between the Tabernacle and the altar, and fill it with water.H5414H3595H168H4150H4196H5414H4325 8Then set up the courtyard around the outside of the tent, and hang the curtain for the courtyard entrance.H7760H2691H5439H5414H4539H2691H8179 9"Take the anointing oil and anoint the Tabernacle and all its furnishings to consecrate them and make them holy.H3947H4888H8081H4886H4908H6942H3627H6944 10Anoint the altar of burnt offering and its utensils to consecrate them. Then the altar will become absolutely holy.H4886H4196H5930H3627H6942H4196H4196H6944H6944 11Next anoint the washbasin and its stand to consecrate them.H4886H3595H3653H6942 12"Present Aaron and his sons at the entrance of the Tabernacle, and wash them with water.H7126H175H1121H6607H168H4150H7364H4325 13Dress Aaron with the sacred garments and anoint him, consecrating him to serve me as a priest.H3847H175H6944H899H4886H6942H3547 14Then present his sons and dress them in their tunics.H7126H1121H3847H3801 15Anoint them as you did their father, so they may also serve me as priests. With their anointing, Aaron's descendants are set apart for the priesthood forever, from generation to generation."H4886H4886H1H3547H4888H5769H3550H1755 16Moses proceeded to do everything just as the LORD had commanded him.H6213H4872H3068H6680H6213 17So the Tabernacle was set up on the first day of the first month of the second year.H7223H2320H8145H8141H259H2320H4908H6965 18Moses erected the Tabernacle by setting down its bases, inserting the frames, attaching the crossbars, and setting up the posts.H4872H6965H4908H5414H134H7760H7175H5414H1280H6965H5982 19Then he spread the coverings over the Tabernacle framework and put on the protective layers, just as the LORD had commanded him.H6566H168H4908H7760H4372H168H4605H3068H6680H4872 20He took the stone tablets inscribed with the terms of the covenant and placed them inside the Ark. Then he attached the carrying poles to the Ark, and he set the Ark's cover—the place of atonement—on top of it.H3947H5414H5715H727H7760H905H727H5414H3727H4605H727 21Then he brought the Ark of the Covenant into the Tabernacle and hung the inner curtain to shield it from view, just as the LORD had commanded him.H935H727H4908H7760H6532H4539H5526H727H5715H3068H6680H4872 22Next Moses placed the table in the Tabernacle, along the north side of the Holy Place, just outside the inner curtain.H5414H7979H168H4150H3409H4908H6828H2351H6532 23And he arranged the Bread of the Presence on the table before the LORD, just as the LORD had commanded him.H6187H3899H6186H6440H3068H3068H6680H4872 24He set the lampstand in the Tabernacle across from the table on the south side of the Holy Place.H7760H4501H168H4150H5227H7979H3409H4908H5045 25Then he lit the lamps in the LORD's presence, just as the LORD had commanded him.H5927H5216H6440H3068H3068H6680H4872 26He also placed the gold incense altar in the Tabernacle, in the Holy Place in front of the inner curtain.H7760H2091H4196H168H4150H6440H6532 27On it he burned the fragrant incense, just as the LORD had commanded him.H6999H5561H7004H3068H6680H4872 28He hung the curtain at the entrance of the Tabernacle,H7760H4539H6607H4908 29and he placed the altar of burnt offering near the Tabernacle entrance. On it he offered a burnt offering and a grain offering, just as the LORD had commanded him.H7760H4196H5930H6607H4908H168H4150H5927H5930H4503H3068H6680H4872 30Next Moses placed the washbasin between the Tabernacle and the altar. He filled it with water so the priests could wash themselves.H7760H3595H168H4150H4196H5414H4325H7364 31Moses and Aaron and Aaron's sons used water from it to wash their hands and feet.H4872H175H1121H7364H3027H7272 32Whenever they approached the altar and entered the Tabernacle, they washed themselves, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.H935H168H4150H7126H4196H7364H3068H6680H4872 33Then he hung the curtains forming the courtyard around the Tabernacle and the altar. And he set up the curtain at the entrance of the courtyard. So at last Moses finished the work.H6965H2691H5439H4908H4196H5414H4539H2691H8179H4872H3615H4399

The Lord’s Glory Fills the Tabernacle

34Then the cloud covered the Tabernacle, and the glory of the LORD filled the Tabernacle.H6051H3680H168H4150H3519H3068H4390H4908 35Moses could no longer enter the Tabernacle because the cloud had settled down over it, and the glory of the LORD filled the Tabernacle.H4872H3201H935H168H4150H6051H7931H3519H3068H4390H4908 36Now whenever the cloud lifted from the Tabernacle, the people of Israel would set out on their journey, following it.H6051H5927H5921H4908H1121H3478H5265H4550 37But if the cloud did not rise, they remained where they were until it lifted.H6051H5927H5265H3117H5927 38The cloud of the LORD hovered over the Tabernacle during the day, and at night fire glowed inside the cloud so the whole family of Israel could see it. This continued throughout all their journeys.H6051H3068H4908H3119H784H3915H5869H1004H3478H4550
