He put the altar for burnt offerings at the entrance to the tent (the tent of meeting). He sacrificed burnt offerings and grain offerings on it. Moses followed the LORD's instructions.
He put the basin between the tent of meeting and the altar and put water in it for washing.

They would wash whenever they went into the tent of meeting or whenever they approached the altar. Moses followed the LORD's instructions.
He set up the courtyard around the tent and the altar and put up the screen at the entrance to the courtyard. Finally, Moses finished the work.
