Exodus


040:001 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
040:002 On the first day of the first month shalt thou set up the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.
040:003 And thou shalt put therein the ark of the testimony, and cover the ark with the vail.
040:004 And 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 thereof.
040:005 And 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.
040:006 And thou shalt set the altar of the burnt offering before the door of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.
040:007 And thou shalt set the laver between the tent of the congregation and the altar, and shalt put water therein.
040:008 And thou shalt set up the court round about, and hang up the hanging at the court gate.
040:009 And 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.
040:010 And 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.
040:011 And thou shalt anoint the laver and his foot, and sanctify it.
040:012 And thou shalt bring Aaron and his sons unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and wash them with water.
040:013 And thou shalt put upon Aaron the holy garments, and anoint him, and sanctify him; that he may minister unto me in the priest’s office.
040:014 And thou shalt bring his sons, and clothe them with coats:
040:015 And 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.
040:016 Thus did Moses: according to all that the Lord commanded him, so did he.
040:017 And 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.
040:018 And 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.
040:019 And he spread abroad the tent over the tabernacle, and put the covering of the tent above upon it; as the Lord commanded Moses.
040:020 And 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:
040:021 And 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.
040:022 And he put the table in the tent of the congregation, upon the side of the tabernacle northward, without the vail.
040:023 And he set the bread in order upon it before the Lord; as the Lord had commanded Moses.
040:024 And he put the candlestick in the tent of the congregation, over against the table, on the side of the tabernacle southward.
040:025 And he lighted the lamps before the Lord; as the Lord commanded Moses.
040:026 And he put the golden altar in the tent of the congregation before the vail:
040:027 And he burnt sweet incense thereon; as the Lord commanded Moses.
040:028 And he set up the hanging at the door of the tabernacle.
040:029 And 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.
040:030 And he set the laver between the tent of the congregation and the altar, and put water there, to wash withal.
040:031 And Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their feet thereat:
040:032 When they went into the tent of the congregation, and when they came near unto the altar, they washed; as the Lord commanded Moses.
040:033 And 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.
040:034 Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.
040:035 And 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.
040:036 And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys:
040:037 But if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up.
040:038 For 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.
