Exodus 40 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
40 The Tabernacle with the appertinences is reared up. 34 The glory of the Lord appeareth in the cloud covering the Tabernacle.
1 Then the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
2 In the [a]first day of the first month in the very first of the same month shalt thou set up the Tabernacle, called the Tabernacle of the Congregation:
3 And thou shalt put therein the Ark of the Testimony, and cover the Ark with the veil.
4 Also thou shalt bring in the [b]Table, and set it in order as it doth require: thou shalt also bring in the Candlestick, and light his lamps.
6 Moreover, thou shalt set the burnt offering Altar before the door of the Tabernacle, called the Tabernacle of the Congregation.
7 And thou shalt set the Laver between the Tabernacle of the Congregation and the Altar, and put water therein.
8 Then thou shalt appoint the court round about, and hang up the hanging at the court gate.
9 After, thou shalt take the anointing oil, and anoint the Tabernacle, and all that is therein, and hallow it with all the instruments thereof, that it may be holy.
10 And thou shalt anoint the Altar of the burnt offering, and all his instruments, and shalt sanctify the Altar, that it may be an altar most holy.
11 Also thou shalt anoint the Laver, and his foot, and shalt sanctify it.
12 Then thou shalt bring Aaron and his sons unto the door of the Tabernacle of the Congregation, and wash them with water.
13 And thou shalt put upon Aaron the holy garments, and shalt anoint him, and sanctify him, that he may minister unto me in the Priest’s office.
14 Thou shalt also bring his sons and clothe them with garments.
15 And shalt anoint them as thou didst anoint their father, that they may minister unto me in the Priest’s office: for their anointing shall be a sign, that the Priesthood [e]shall be everlasting unto them throughout their generations.
16 So Moses did according to all that the Lord had commanded him; so did he.
17 ¶ Thus was the Tabernacle reared up the first day of the first month in [f]the second year.
18 Then Moses reared up the Tabernacle and fastened his sockets, and set up the boards thereof, and put in the bars of it, and reared up his pillars.
19 And he spread the covering over the Tabernacle, and put the covering of that covering on high above it, as the Lord had commanded Moses.
20 ¶ And he took and put the [g]Testimony in the Ark, and put the bars in the rings of the Ark, and set the Mercy seat on high upon the Ark.
21 He brought also the Ark into the Tabernacle, and hanged up the covering veil, and covered the Ark of the Testimony, as the Lord had commanded Moses.
22 ¶ Furthermore he put the Table in the Tabernacle of the Congregation in the North side of the Tabernacle, without the veil,
23 And set the bread in order before the Lord, as the Lord had commanded Moses.
24 ¶ Also he put the Candlestick in the Tabernacle of the Congregation, over against the Table toward the South side of the Tabernacle.
25 And he [h]lighted the lamps before the Lord, as the Lord had commanded Moses.
26 ¶ Moreover, he set the golden Altar in the Tabernacle of the Congregation before the veil,
27 And burnt sweet incense thereon, as the Lord had commanded Moses.
28 ¶ Also he hanged up the veil at the [i]door of the Tabernacle.
29 After, he set the burnt offering Altar without the door of the Tabernacle, called the Tabernacle of the Congregation, and offered the burnt offering and the sacrifice thereon, as the Lord had commanded Moses.
30 ¶ Likewise he set the Laver between the Tabernacle of the Congregation and the Altar, and poured water therein to wash with.
31 So Moses and Aaron, and his sons washed their hands and their feet thereat.
32 When they went into the Tabernacle of the Congregation, and when they approached to the Altar, they washed, as the Lord had commanded Moses.
33 Finally, he reared up the court round about the Tabernacle and the Altar, and hanged up the veil at the court gate: so Moses finished the work.
34 ¶ Then the cloud covered the Tabernacle of the Congregation, and the glory of the Lord filled the Tabernacle.
35 So Moses could not enter into the Tabernacle of the Congregation, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the Lord filled the Tabernacle.
36 Now when the cloud ascended up from the Tabernacle, the children of Israel went forward in all their journeys.
37 But if the cloud ascended not, then they journeyed not till the day that it ascended.
38 For [j]the cloud of the Lord was upon the Tabernacle by day, and fire was in it by night in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.
