1 The LORD spoke to Moses: 1 Then the LORD said to Moses:
2 Set up the meeting tent dwelling on the first day of the first month. 2 "Set up the tabernacle, the Tent of Meeting, on the first day of the first month.
3 Place the chest containing the covenant inside the dwelling. Hide the chest from view with the veil. 3 Place the ark of the Testimony in it and shield the ark with the curtain.
4 Bring in the table and arrange its items. Bring in the lampstand and set up its lamps. 4 Bring in the table and set out what belongs on it. Then bring in the lampstand and set up its lamps.
5 Place the gold altar for burning incense in front of the chest containing the covenant. Set up the screen at the dwelling's entrance. 5 Place the gold altar of incense in front of the ark of the Testimony and put the curtain at the entrance to the tabernacle.
6 Put the altar for entirely burned offerings in front of the entrance to the meeting tent dwelling. 6 "Place the altar of burnt offering in front of the entrance to the tabernacle, the Tent of Meeting;
7 Put the washbasin between the meeting tent and the altar and put water in it. 7 place the basin between the Tent of Meeting and the altar and put water in it.
8 Set up the courtyard all around. Hang up the screen at the courtyard gate. 8 Set up the courtyard around it and put the curtain at the entrance to the courtyard.
9 Then take the anointing oil and anoint the dwelling and everything in it. Make holy the dwelling and all its equipment, and it will be holy. 9 "Take the anointing oil and anoint the tabernacle and everything in it; consecrate it and all its furnishings, and it will be holy.
10 Anoint the altar for entirely burned offerings and all its equipment. Make the altar holy, and the altar will be most holy. 10 Then anoint the altar of burnt offering and all its utensils; consecrate the altar, and it will be most holy.
11 Anoint the washbasin with its stand and make it holy. 11 Anoint the basin and its stand and consecrate them.
12 Then bring Aaron and his sons to the meeting tent's entrance and wash them with water. 12 "Bring Aaron and his sons to the entrance to the Tent of Meeting and wash them with water.
13 Dress Aaron in the holy clothes. Anoint him and make him holy so that he may serve me as priest. 13 Then dress Aaron in the sacred garments, anoint him and consecrate him so he may serve me as priest.
14 Then bring his sons and dress them in tunics. 14 Bring his sons and dress them in tunics.
15 Anoint them like you anointed their father so that they may serve me as priests. Their anointing is to the priesthood for all time in every generation. 15 Anoint them just as you anointed their father, so they may serve me as priests. Their anointing will be to a priesthood that will continue for all generations to come."
16 Moses did everything exactly as the LORD had commanded him. 16 Moses did everything just as the LORD commanded him.
17 In the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, the dwelling was set up. 17 So the tabernacle was set up on the first day of the first month in the second year.
18 Moses set up the dwelling. He laid out its bases. He set up its boards, inserted its bars, and raised up its posts. 18 When Moses set up the tabernacle, he put the bases in place, erected the frames, inserted the crossbars and set up the posts.
19 He spread the tent out over the dwelling, and he put the covering of the tent over it, just as the LORD had commanded Moses. 19 Then he spread the tent over the tabernacle and put the covering over the tent, as the LORD commanded him.
20 He took the covenant document and placed it inside the chest. He put the poles on the chest, and he set the cover on top of the chest. 20 He took the Testimony and placed it in the ark, attached the poles to the ark and put the atonement cover over it.
21 He brought the chest into the dwelling. He set up the veil as a screen to hide from view the chest containing the covenant, just as the LORD had commanded Moses. 21 Then he brought the ark into the tabernacle and hung the shielding curtain and shielded the ark of the Testimony, as the LORD commanded him.
22 He placed the table in the meeting tent, on the north side of the dwelling, outside the veil. 22 Moses placed the table in the Tent of Meeting on the north side of the tabernacle outside the curtain
23 He set the bread in its proper place on the table in the LORD's presence, just as the LORD had commanded Moses. 23 and set out the bread on it before the LORD, as the LORD commanded him.
24 He put the lampstand in the meeting tent, opposite the table on the south side of the dwelling. 24 He placed the lampstand in the Tent of Meeting opposite the table on the south side of the tabernacle
25 He set up the lamps in the LORD's presence, just as the LORD had commanded Moses. 25 and set up the lamps before the LORD, as the LORD commanded him.
26 He put the gold altar in the meeting tent in front of the veil. 26 Moses placed the gold altar in the Tent of Meeting in front of the curtain
27 He burned sweet-smelling incense on it, just as the LORD had commanded Moses. 27 and burned fragrant incense on it, as the LORD commanded him.
28 He also set up the screen at the entrance to the dwelling. 28 Then he put up the curtain at the entrance to the tabernacle.
29 He placed the altar for entirely burned offerings at the entrance to the meeting tent dwelling. He offered the entirely burned offering and the grain offering on it, just as the LORD had commanded Moses. 29 He set the altar of burnt offering near the entrance to the tabernacle, the Tent of Meeting, and offered on it burnt offerings and grain offerings, as the LORD commanded him.
30 He put the washbasin between the meeting tent and the altar, and put water in it for washing. 30 He placed the basin between the Tent of Meeting and the altar and put water in it for washing,
31 Moses, Aaron, and his sons used it to wash their hands and their feet. 31 and Moses and Aaron and his sons used it to wash their hands and feet.
32 Whenever they went into the meeting tent and whenever they approached the altar, they washed themselves, just as the LORD had commanded Moses. 32 They washed whenever they entered the Tent of Meeting or approached the altar, as the LORD commanded Moses.
33 He set up the courtyard around the dwelling and the altar, and he hung up the screen at the courtyard's gate. When Moses had finished all the work, 33 Then Moses set up the courtyard around the tabernacle and altar and put up the curtain at the entrance to the courtyard. And so Moses finished the work.
34 the cloud covered the meeting tent and the LORD's glorious presence filled the dwelling. 34 Then the cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
35 Moses couldn't enter the meeting tent because the cloud had settled on it, and the LORD's glorious presence filled the dwelling. 35 Moses could not enter the Tent of Meeting because the cloud had settled upon it, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
36 Whenever the cloud rose from the dwelling, the Israelites would set out on their journeys. 36 In all the travels of the Israelites, whenever the cloud lifted from above the tabernacle, they would set out;
37 But if the cloud didn't rise, then they didn't set out until the day it rose. 37 but if the cloud did not lift, they did not set out--until the day it lifted.
38 The LORD's cloud stayed over the dwelling during the day, with lightning in it at night, clearly visible to the whole household of Israel at every stage of their journey. 38 So the cloud of the LORD was over the tabernacle by day, and fire was in the cloud by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel during all their travels.
