1 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

2 On the first day of the month, in the first month, shalt thou raise·​·up the Habitation of the Tabernacle of the congregation.

3 And thou shalt set in it the ark of the testimony, and thou shalt shelter the veil over the ark.

4 And thou shalt bring·​·in the table, and shalt arrange its arrangement; and thou shalt bring·​·in the lampstand, and shalt cause the flame of its lamps to go·​·up*.

5 And thou shalt put the altar of gold for incense before the ark of the Testimony, and shalt set the sheltering of the entrance to the Habitation.

6 And thou shalt put the altar of the burnt·​·offering before the entrance of the Habitation of the Tabernacle of the congregation.

7 And thou shalt put the laver between the Tabernacle of the congregation and the altar, and shalt put waters therein.

8 And thou shalt set the court all around, and shalt put the sheltering at the gate of the court.

9 And thou shalt take the oil of anointing, and anoint the Habitation, and all that is in it, and thou shalt sanctify it, and all its vessels; and it shall be holy.

10 And thou shalt anoint the altar of burnt·​·offering, and all its vessels, and shalt sanctify the altar; and the altar shall be a holy of holies.

11 And thou shalt anoint the laver and its base, and shalt sanctify it.

12 And thou shalt make Aaron and his sons come·​·near to the entrance of the Tabernacle of the congregation, and shalt bathe them with waters.

13 And thou shall clothe Aaron with the garments of holiness, and thou shall anoint him, and sanctify him, that he may be·​·a·​·priest to Me.

14 And thou shalt make his sons to come·​·near, and shalt clothe them with tunics.

15 And thou shalt anoint them, as thou didst anoint their father, and they shall be·​·priests to Me; and their anointing shall be for a priesthood of an age, to be to them for their generations.

16 And Moses did according·​·to all that Jehovah commanded him, so he did.

17 And it was in the first month, in the second year, on the first day of the month, that the Habitation was raised·​·up.

18 And Moses raised·​·up the Habitation, and put down its bases, and set up its planks, and put in its bars, and raised·​·up its pillars.

19 And he spread the Tabernacle over the Habitation, and put the covering of the Tabernacle upon it above, as Jehovah commanded Moses.

20 And he took and put the Testimony into the ark, and placed the poles upon the ark, and put the place of atonement upon the ark above.

21 And he brought the ark into the Habitation, and set the veil of the sheltering, and sheltered over the ark of the Testimony; as Jehovah commanded Moses.

22 And he put the table in the Tabernacle of the congregation, upon the thigh of the Habitation northward, outside the veil.

23 And he arranged on it the arrangement of the bread before Jehovah; as Jehovah commanded Moses.

24 And he set the lampstand in the Tabernacle of the congregation, opposite the table, on the thigh of the Habitation toward the south.

25 And he caused the flame of the lamps to go·​·up* before Jehovah; as Jehovah commanded Moses.

26 And he put the altar of gold in the Tabernacle of the congregation before the veil;

27 and he burnt·​·for·​·incense thereon fragrant incense, as Jehovah commanded Moses.

28 And he set the sheltering of the entrance to the Habitation.

29 And he set the altar of the burnt·​·offering at the entrance of the Habitation of the Tabernacle of the congregation, and he brought·​·up on it the burnt·​·offering and the gift·​·offering; as Jehovah commanded Moses.

30 And he set the laver between the Tabernacle of the congregation and the altar, and put waters therein, to bathe.

31 And Moses and Aaron and his sons bathed out of it their hands and their feet.

32 When they came into the Tabernacle of the congregation, and when they came·​·near to the altar, they bathed; as Jehovah commanded Moses.

33 And he raised·​·up the court all around the Habitation, and the altar, and put up the sheltering of the gate of the court. And Moses completed the work*,

34 And the cloud covered the Tabernacle of the congregation, and the glory of Jehovah filled the Habitation.

35 And Moses was· not ·able to come into the Tabernacle of the congregation, for the cloud abode on it, and the glory of Jehovah filled the Habitation*.

36 And when the cloud went·​·up from over the Habitation, the sons of Israel journeyed in all their journeys.

37 And if the cloud went· not ·up, then they journeyed not until the day that it went·​·up.

38 For the cloud of Jehovah was upon the Habitation by·​·day, and there was fire in it by night, to the eyes of all the house of Israel, in all their journeys.
