Exodus 40: 16, 20-37
16This Moses did; according to all that the Lord commanded him, so he did… 20 He took the testimony and put it into the ark, and put the poles on the ark and set the mercy seat above on the ark.21And he brought the ark into the tabernacle and set up the veil of the screen, and screened the ark of the testimony, as the Lord had commanded Moses.22He put the table in the tent of meeting, on the north side of the tabernacle, outside the veil,23and arranged the bread on it before theLord, as the Lord had commanded Moses.24He put the lampstand in the tent of meeting, opposite the table on the south side of the tabernacle,25and set up the lamps before theLord, as the Lord had commanded Moses.26He put the golden altar in the tent of meeting before the veil,27and burned fragrant incense on it, as the Lord had Moses.28He put in place the screen for the door of the tabernacle.29And he set the altar of burnt offering at the entrance of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting, and offered on it the burnt offering and the grain offering, as the Lord had commanded Moses.30He set the basin between the tent of meeting and the altar, and put water in it for washing,31with which Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their feet.32When they went into the tent of meeting, and when they approached the altar, they washed, as the Lord commanded Moses.33And he erected the court around the tabernacle and the altar, and set up the screen of the gate of the court. SoMoses finished the work. 34Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.35And Moses was not able to enter the tent of meeting because the cloud settled on it,and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.36Throughout all their journeys, whenever the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the people of Israel would set out. 37 But if the cloud was not taken up, then they did not set out till the day that it was taken up, then they did not set out till the day that it was taken up
