40 Then the Lord said to Moses:2 “Set up the tabernacle, the tent of meeting, on the first day of the first month.3 Place the ark of the covenant law in it and shield the ark with the curtain.4 Bring in the table and set out what belongs on it. Then bring in the lampstand and set up its lamps.5 Place the gold altar of incense in front of the ark of the covenant law and put the curtain at the entrance to the tabernacle.
6 “Place the altar of burnt offering in front of the entrance to the tabernacle, the tent of meeting;7 place the basin between the tent of meeting and the altar and put water in it.8 Set up the courtyard around it and put the curtain at the entrance to the courtyard.
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 Then anoint the altar of burnt offering and all its utensils; consecrate the altar, and it will be most holy.11 Anoint the basin and its stand and consecrate them.
12 “Bring Aaron and his sons to the entrance to the tent of meeting and wash them with water.13 Then dress Aaron in the sacred garments, anoint him and consecrate him so he may serve me as priest.14 Bring his sons and dress them in tunics.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 throughout their generations.”16 Moses did everything just as the Lord commanded him.
