Exodus 40
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And YHWH speaks to Moses, saying, 2“On the first day of the month, in the first month, you raise up the Dwelling Place of the Tent of Meeting, 3and have set the Ark of the Testimony [in] there, and have covered over the Ark with the veil, 4and have brought in the table, and set its arrangement in order, and have brought in the lampstand, and caused its lamps to go up. 5And you have put the golden altar for incense before the Ark of the Testimony, and have put the covering of the opening to the Dwelling Place, 6and have put the altar of the burnt-offering before the opening of the Dwelling Place of the Tent of Meeting, 7and have put the laver between the Tent of Meeting and the altar, and have put water [in] there. 8And you have set the court all around, and have placed the covering of the gate of the court, 9and have taken the anointing oil, and anointed the Dwelling Place, and all that [is] in it, and hallowed it, and all its vessels, and it has been holy; 10and you have anointed the altar of the burnt-offering, and all its vessels, and sanctified the altar, and the altar has been most holy; 11and you have anointed the laver and its base, and sanctified it. 12And you have brought Aaron and his sons near to the opening of the Tent of Meeting, and have bathed them with water; 13and you have clothed Aaron with the holy garments, and anointed him, and sanctified him, and he has acted as priest to Me. 14And you bring his sons near, and have clothed them with coats, 15and anointed them as you have anointed their father, and they have acted as priests to Me, and their anointing has been to them for a continuous priesthood throughout their generations.” 16And Moses does according to all that YHWH has commanded him; so he has done.

17And it comes to pass, in the first month, in the second year, on the first of the month, the Dwelling Place has been raised up; 18and Moses raises up the Dwelling Place, and sets its sockets, and places its boards, and places its bars, and raises its pillars, 19and spreads the tent over the Dwelling Place, and puts the covering of the tent on it above, as YHWH has commanded Moses. 20And he takes and puts the Testimony into the Ark, and sets the poles on the Ark, and puts the propitiatory covering on the Ark above; 21and brings the Ark into the Dwelling Place, and places the veil of the covering, and covers over the Ark of the Testimony, as YHWH has commanded Moses. 22And he puts the table in the Tent of Meeting, on the side of the Dwelling Place northward, at the outside of the veil, 23and sets in order the arrangement of bread on it, before YHWH, as YHWH has commanded Moses. 24And he puts the lampstand in the Tent of Meeting, opposite the table, on the side of the Dwelling Place southward, 25and causes the lamps to go up before YHWH, as YHWH has commanded Moses. 26And he sets the golden altar in the Tent of Meeting, before the veil, 27and makes incense on it—spice-incense—as YHWH has commanded Moses. 28And he sets the covering [at] the opening of the Dwelling Place, 29and he has set the altar of the burnt-offering [at] the opening of the Dwelling Place of the Tent of Meeting, and causes the burnt-offering to go up on it, and the present, as YHWH has commanded Moses. 30And he puts the laver between the Tent of Meeting and the altar, and puts water [in] there for washing, 31and Moses and Aaron and his sons have washed their hands and their feet at the same; 32in their going into the Tent of Meeting, and in their drawing near to the altar, they wash, as YHWH has commanded Moses. 33And he raises up the court all around the Dwelling Place, and around the altar, and places the covering of the gate of the court; and Moses completes the work.

34And the cloud covers the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of YHWH has filled the Dwelling Place; 35and Moses has not been able to go into the Tent of Meeting, for the cloud has dwelt on it, and the glory of YHWH has filled the Dwelling Place. 36And in the going up of the cloud from off the Dwelling Place the sons of Israel journey in all their journeys; 37and if the cloud does not go up then they do not journey, until the day of its going up. 38For the cloud of YHWH [is] on the Dwelling Place by day, and fire is in it by night, before the eyes of all the house of Israel in all their journeys.
