EX 40:1  And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying:

EX 40:2  The first month, the first day of the month, thou shalt set up the tabernacle of the testimony,

EX 40:3  And shalt put the ark in it, and shalt let down the veil before it:

EX 40:4  And thou shalt bring in the table, and set upon it the things that are commanded according to the rite. The candlestick shall stand with its lamps,

EX 40:5  And the altar of gold whereon the incense is burnt, before the ark of the testimony. Thou shalt put the hanging in the entry of the tabernacle,

EX 40:6  And before it the altar of holocaust:

EX 40:7  The laver between the altar and the tabernacle, and thou shalt fill it with water.

EX 40:8  And thou shalt encompass the court with hangings, and the entry thereof.

EX 40:9  And thou shalt take the oil of unction and anoint the tabernacle with its vessels, that they may be sanctified:

EX 40:10  The altar of holocaust and all its vessels:

EX 40:11  The laver with its foot: thou shalt consecrate all with the oil of unction, that they may be most holy.

EX 40:12  And thou shalt bring Aaron and his sons to the door of the tabernacle of the testimony, and having washed them with water,

EX 40:13  Thou shalt put on them the holy vestments, that they may minister to me, and that the unction of them may prosper to an everlasting priesthood.

EX 40:14  And Moses did all that the Lord had commanded.

EX 40:15  So in the first month of the second year, the first day of the month, the tabernacle was set up.

EX 40:16  And Moses reared it up, and placed the boards and the sockets and the bars, and set up the pillars,

EX 40:17  And spread the roof over the tabernacle, putting over it a cover, as the Lord had commanded.

EX 40:18  And he put the testimony in the ark, thrusting bars underneath, and the oracle above.

EX 40:19  And when he had brought the ark into the tabernacle, he drew the veil before it to fulfil the commandment of the Lord.

EX 40:20  And he set the table in the tabernacle of the testimony at the north side without the veil,

EX 40:21  Setting there in order the loaves of proposition, as the Lord had commanded Moses.

EX 40:22  He set the candlestick also in the tabernacle of the testimony over against the table on the south side,

EX 40:23  Placing the lamps in order, according to the precept of the Lord.

EX 40:24  He set also the altar of gold under the roof of the testimony over against the veil,

EX 40:25  And burnt upon it the incense of spices, as the Lord had commanded Moses.

EX 40:26  And he put also the hanging in the entry of the tabernacle of the testimony,

EX 40:27  And the altar of holocaust of the entry of the testimony, offering the holocaust, and the sacrifices upon it, as the Lord had commanded.

EX 40:28  And he set the laver between the tabernacle of the testimony and the altar, filling it with water.

EX 40:29  And Moses and Aaron, and his sons washed their hands and feet,

EX 40:30  When they went into the tabernacle of the covenant, and went to the altar, as the Lord had commanded Moses.

EX 40:31  He set up also the court round about the tabernacle and the altar, drawing the hanging in the entry thereof. After all things were perfected,

EX 40:32  The cloud covered the tabernacle of the testimony, and the glory of the Lord filled it.

EX 40:33  Neither could Moses go into the tabernacle of the covenant, the cloud covering all things and the majesty of the Lord shining, for the cloud had covered all.

EX 40:34  If at any time the cloud removed from the tabernacle, the children of Israel went forward by their troops:

EX 40:35  If it hung over, they remained in the same place.

EX 40:36  For the cloud of the Lord hung over the tabernacle by day, and a fire by night, in the sight of all the children of Israel throughout all their mansions.
