Exodus 40:14

And take his sons with him and put coats on them;

Exodus 40:15

And put oil on them as you did on their father, so that they may be my priests: the putting on of oil will make them priests for ever, from generation to generation.

Exodus 40:16

And Moses did this; as the Lord gave him orders, so he did.

Exodus 40:17

So on the first day of the first month in the second year the House was put up.

Exodus 40:18

Moses put up the House; placing its bases in position and lifting up its uprights, putting in the rods and planting the pillars in their places;

Exodus 40:19

Stretching the outer tent over it, and covering it, as the Lord had given him orders.

Exodus 40:20

And he took the law and put it inside the ark, and put the rods at its side and the cover over it;

Exodus 40:21

And he took the ark into the House, hanging up the veil before it as the Lord had given him orders.

Exodus 40:22

And he put the table in the Tent of meeting, on the north side outside the veil.

Exodus 40:23

And he put the bread on it in order before the Lord, as the Lord had said.

Exodus 40:24

The support for the lights he put in the Tent of meeting, opposite the table, on the south side:

Exodus 40:25

Lighting the lights before the Lord, as the Lord had given him orders.

Exodus 40:26

And he put the gold altar in the Tent of meeting, in front of the veil:

Exodus 40:27

Burning sweet perfumes on it, as the Lord had given him orders.

Exodus 40:28

And he put up the curtain at the doorway of the House.

Exodus 40:29

And at the door of the House of the Tent of meeting, he put the altar of burned offerings, offering on it the burned offering and the meal offering, as the Lord had given him orders.

Exodus 40:30

And between the altar and the Tent of meeting he put the vessel with water in it for washing.

Exodus 40:31

In it the hands and feet of Moses and Aaron and his sons were washed,

Exodus 40:32

Whenever they went into the Tent of meeting, and when they came near the altar, as the Lord had given orders to Moses.

Exodus 40:33

And he put up the hangings forming the open space round the House and the altar, and put the curtain over the doorway. So Moses made the work complete.

Exodus 40:34

Then the cloud came down covering the Tent of meeting, and the House was full of the glory of the Lord;

Exodus 40:35

So that Moses was not able to go into the Tent of meeting, because the cloud was resting on it, and the House was full of the glory of the Lord.

Exodus 40:36

And whenever the cloud was taken up from the House, the children of Israel went forward on their journey:

Exodus 40:37

But while the cloud was there, they made no move till it was taken up.

Exodus 40:38

For the cloud of the Lord was resting on the House by day, and at night there was fire in the cloud, before the eyes of all the people of Israel, and so it was through all their journeys.
