1 The Lord spoke to Moses: 1 Then the LORD said to Moses:
2 On the first day of the first month you shall set up the tabernacle of the tent of meeting. 2 "Set up the tabernacle, the Tent of Meeting, on the first day of the first month.
3 You shall put in it the ark of the covenant, and you shall screen the ark with the curtain. 3 Place the ark of the Testimony in it and shield the ark with the curtain.
4 You shall bring in the table, and arrange its setting; and you shall 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 You shall put the golden altar for incense before the ark of the covenant, and set up the screen for the entrance of the tabernacle. 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 You shall set the altar of burnt offering before the entrance of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting, 6 "Place the altar of burnt offering in front of the entrance to the tabernacle, the Tent of Meeting;
7 and place the basin between the tent of meeting 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 You shall set up the court all around, and hang up the screen for the gate of the court. 8 Set up the courtyard around it and put the curtain at the entrance to the courtyard.
9 Then you shall take the anointing oil, and anoint the tabernacle and all that is in it, and consecrate it and all its furniture, so that it shall become 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 You shall also anoint the altar of burnt offering and all its utensils, and consecrate the altar, so that the altar shall 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 You shall also anoint the basin with its stand, and consecrate it. 11 Anoint the basin and its stand and consecrate them.
12 Then you shall bring Aaron and his sons to the entrance of the tent of meeting, and shall wash them with water, 12 "Bring Aaron and his sons to the entrance to the Tent of Meeting and wash them with water.
13 and put on Aaron the sacred vestments, and you shall anoint him and consecrate him, 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 You shall bring his sons also and put tunics on them, 14 Bring his sons and dress them in tunics.
15 and anoint them, as you anointed their father, that they may serve me as priests: and their anointing shall admit them to a perpetual priesthood throughout all generations to come. 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 just 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 tabernacle 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 tabernacle; he laid its bases, and set up its frames, and put in its poles, and raised up its pillars; 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 and he spread the tent over the tabernacle, and put the covering of the tent over it; 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 and put it into the ark, and put the poles on the ark, and set the mercy seat above the ark; 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 and he brought the ark into the tabernacle, and set up the curtain for screening, and screened the ark of the covenant; 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 put the table in the tent of meeting, on the north side of the tabernacle, outside the curtain, 22 Moses placed the table in the Tent of Meeting on the north side of the tabernacle outside the curtain
23 and set the bread in order on it before the Lord; 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 tent of meeting, opposite the table on the south side of the tabernacle, 24 He placed the lampstand in the Tent of Meeting opposite the table on the south side of the tabernacle
25 and set up the lamps before the Lord; as the Lord had commanded Moses. 25 and set up the lamps before the LORD, as the LORD commanded him.
26 He put the golden altar in the tent of meeting before the curtain, 26 Moses placed the gold altar in the Tent of Meeting in front of the curtain
27 and offered fragrant incense on it; as the Lord had commanded Moses. 27 and burned fragrant incense on it, as the LORD commanded him.
28 He also put in place the screen for the entrance of the tabernacle. 28 Then he put up the curtain at the entrance to the tabernacle.
29 He set the altar of burnt offering at the entrance of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting, and offered on it the burnt offering and the grain offering 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 set the basin between the tent of meeting 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 with which Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their feet. 31 and Moses and Aaron and his sons used it to wash their hands and feet.
32 When they went into the tent of meeting, and when they approached the altar, they washed; 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 court around the tabernacle and the altar, and put up the screen at the gate of the court. So Moses finished 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 Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. 34 Then the cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
35 Moses was not able to enter the tent of meeting because the cloud settled upon it, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. 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 was taken up from the tabernacle, the Israelites would set out on each stage of their journey; 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 was not taken up, then they did not set out until the day that it was taken up. 37 but if the cloud did not lift, they did not set out--until the day it lifted.
38 For the cloud of the Lord was on the tabernacle by day, and fire was in the cloud by night, before the eyes of all the house of Israel at each 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.
