1 The LORD said to Moses, 1 Then the LORD said to Moses:
2 "On the first day of the first month you shall erect 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 And you shall put in it the ark of the testimony, and you shall screen the ark with the veil. 3 Place the ark of the Testimony in it and shield the ark with the curtain.
4 And you shall bring in the table, and set its arrangements in order; 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 And you shall put the golden altar for incense before the ark of the testimony, and set up the screen for the door 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 door 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 laver 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 And you shall set up the court round about, 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; and 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; and 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 laver and its base, and consecrate it. 11 Anoint the basin and its stand and consecrate them.
12 Then you shall bring Aaron and his sons to the door 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 upon Aaron the holy garments, and you shall anoint him and consecrate him, 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 coats 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 their generations." 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 Thus did Moses; according to all that the LORD commanded him, so he did. 16 Moses did everything just as the LORD commanded him.
17 And in the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, the tabernacle was erected. 17 So the tabernacle was set up on the first day of the first month in the second year.
18 Moses erected 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 And he took the testimony and put it into the ark, and put the poles on the ark, and set the mercy seat above on 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 veil of the screen, and screened the ark of the testimony; 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 And he put the table in the tent of meeting, on the north side of the tabernacle, outside the veil, 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 And 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 And he put the golden altar in the tent of meeting before the veil, 26 Moses placed the gold altar in the Tent of Meeting in front of the curtain
27 and burnt fragrant incense upon it; as the LORD had commanded Moses. 27 and burned fragrant incense on it, as the LORD commanded him.
28 And he put in place the screen for the door of the tabernacle. 28 Then he put up the curtain at the entrance to the tabernacle.
29 And he set the altar of burnt offering at the door of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting, and offered upon it the burnt offering and the cereal 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 And he set the laver 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 commanded Moses. 32 They washed whenever they entered the Tent of Meeting or approached the altar, as the LORD commanded Moses.
33 And he erected the court round the tabernacle and the altar, and set up the screen of 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.
