CLV(i) 1 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying. 2 On the first day of the month, in month one, you shall set up the tabernacle of the tent of appointment. 3 You will place there the coffer of the testimony and screen off the coffer with the curtain. 4 You will bring the table and arrange its array and bring the lampstand and set up its lamps. 5 Then you will put the golden altar for incense before the coffer of the testimony and place the portiere of the portal to the tabernacle. 6 You will put the altar of ascent offering before the portal of the tabernacle of the tent of appointment, 7 and you will set the laver between the tent of appointment and the altar and put water therein. 8 You will set up the court round about and put up the portiere of the court gate. 9 You will take the anointing oil and anoint the tabernacle and all that is in it and hallow it and all its furnishings, that it will come to be holy. 10 You will also anoint the altar of ascent offering and all its furnishings and hallow the altar, that the altar will come to be a holy of holies. 11 And you will anoint the laver and its post and hallow it. 12 Then you will bring Aaron and his sons near to the portal of the tent of appointment and wash them in water 13 and put the holy garments on Aaron and anoint him and hallow him, that he serve as priest for Me. 14 And you shall bring his sons near and put tunics on them 15 and anoint them just as you anointed their father that they serve as priests for Me. So it will come to be that their anointing is to bestow on them as eonian priesthood throughout their generations. 16 Thus Moses did according to all that Yahweh had instructed him. So he did. 17 Then it came to be on the first month in the second year since they went forth from Egypt, on the first day of the month, that the tabernacle was set up. 18 So Moses set up the tabernacle and laid its sockets, placed its hollow tapers, put in its bars and set up its columns. 19 Then he spread the tent over the tabernacle and placed the cover of the tent over it above, just as Yahweh had instructed Moses. 20 He took and bestowed the testimony into the coffer, placed the poles on the coffer, put the propitiatory shelter on the coffer above, 21 brought the coffer into the tabernacle and placed the portiere curtain so that it screened off the coffer of the testimony just as Yahweh had instructed Moses. 22 He put the table in the tent of appointment at the flank of the tabernacle northward outside the curtain, 23 and he arranged on it the array of bread before Yahweh, just as Yahweh had instructed Moses. 24 Then he placed the lampstand in the tent of appointment over against the table at the flank of the tabernacle toward the Negev, 25 and set up the lamps before Yahweh, just as Yahweh had instructed Moses. 26 He placed the golden altar in the tent of appointment before the curtain 27 and caused incense of spices to fume on it just as Yahweh had instructed Moses. 28 Then he placed the portiere of the portal to the tabernacle. 29 The altar of ascent offering he placed by the portal of the tabernacle of the tent of appointment, and he brought up on it the ascent offering and the approach present just as Yahweh had instructed Moses. 30 He also placed the laver between the tent of appointment and the altar and put water therein for washing. 31 From it Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their feet. 32 When they entered into the tent of appointment and came near to the altar they washed, just as Yahweh had instructed Moses. 33 Then he set up the court round about the tabernacle and the altar and put up the portiere of the court gate. When Moses had finished all the work 34 and the cloud covered the tent of appointment, then the glory of Yahweh filled the tabernacle, 35 so that Moses was unable to enter into the tent of appointment, for the cloud tabernacled on it, and the glory of Yahweh filled the tabernacle. 36 Whenever the cloud ascended above the tabernacle the sons of Israel journeyed in all their journeyings. 37 Yet if the cloud was not taken up, then they would not journey until the day it was taken up;" 38 for the cloud of Yahweh was over the tabernacle by day, and fire, it came to be in it by night for the eyes of all the house of Israel in all their journeyings.
