Exodus 40

CHAPTER 40

The Tent of Testimony

And the  lord spoke to Moses, saying, On day one of the month of the first new moon, you shall set up the tent of the testimony, and you shall set up there the ark of the testimony, and you shall shelter the ark by the veil. And you shall carry in the table, and you shall set its place setting. And you shall carry in the lamp-stand, and you shall place on it its lamps. And you shall place the [2altar 1golden] to burn incense before the ark of the testimony. And you shall place a covering veil upon the door of the tent. And the altar of the yield offerings you shall put by the door of the tent of the testimony. And you shall place the bathing tub between the tent of the testimony and between the altar. And you shall put [2in 3it 1water]. And you shall station the courtyard round about. And you shall station the veil of the gate of the courtyard. And you shall take the oil of the scented unguent, and you shall anoint the tent, and all the things in it. And you shall sanctify it, and all its items. And it shall be holy. 10 And you shall anoint the altar of the yield offerings, and all its utensils. 11 And you shall anoint the bathing tub, and its base, and you shall sanctify it. And you shall sanctify the altar. And it will be the altar of the holy of the holies. 12 And you shall lead Aaron and his sons unto the doors of the tent of the testimony, and you shall bathe them in water. 13 And you shall put on Aaron the [2apparels 1holy], and you shall anoint him, and you shall sanctify him, and he shall officiate as priest to me. 14 And his sons you shall lead forward, and you shall put on them inner garments. 15 And you shall anoint them in which manner you anointed their father, and they shall officiate as priests to me. And it will be so as to be to them an anointing priesthood into the eon, unto their generations. 16 And Moses did all as much as [2gave charge 3to him 1the  lord] -- thus he did. 17 And it came to pass in the [2month 1first], in the second year of their going forth from out of Egypt, at the new moon, [3was set up 1the 2tent]. 18 And Moses set up the tent, and placed the tips, and inserted the bars, and set up its posts. 19 And he stretched out the curtains upon the tent, and they placed the [2coverings 1tent] upon it from above -- as the  lord gave orders to Moses. 20 And taking the testimonies, he put them into the ark, and he placed the poles under the ark, and he placed the atonement-seat upon the ark. 21 And he carried the ark into the tent, and he set the covering of the veil, and it sheltered the ark of the testimony in which manner the  lord gave orders to Moses. 22 And he placed the table in the tent of the testimony, upon the side of the tent of the testimony, the one towards the north, from outside the veil of the tent. 23 And he set upon it the bread loaves of the place setting before the  lord, in which manner the  lord gave orders to Moses. 24 And he put the lamp-stand in the tent of the testimony before the table, to the side of the tent towards the south. 25 And he placed upon it its lamps before the  lord, in which manner the  lord gave orders to Moses. 26 And he put the [2altar 1golden] in the tent of the testimony before the veil. 27 And he burned incense upon it, the incense of the composition, just as the  lord gave orders to Moses. 28 And he placed the draw curtain of the door of the tent. 29 And the altar of the yield offerings he put by the door of the tent of the testimony. And he offered on it a whole burnt-offering, and a sacrifice offering, as [2gave orders 1the  lord] to Moses. 30 And he put the bathing tub between the tent of the testimony, and between the altar. And he placed [2in 3it 1water] 31 for [6to wash 7from 8it 1Moses 2and 3Aaron 4and 5his sons] their hands and feet, 32 in their entering into the tent of the testimony; or whenever they went to the altar to officiate, they washed from it, as the  lord gave orders to Moses. 33 And he set up the courtyard round about the tent and the testimony, and he stationed the draw curtain of the door of the courtyard. And Moses completed all the works.

The Glory of The LORD Fills the Tent

34 And [3covered 1the 2cloud] the tent of the testimony, and [4of the glory 5of the  lord 3was filled 1the 2tent]. 35 And [2was not able 1Moses] to enter into the tent of the testimony, for [3overshadowed 4upon 5it 1the 2cloud], and [4of the glory 5of the  lord 3was filled 1the 2tent]. 36 And when ever [3ascended 1the 2cloud] from the tent, [4broke camp 1the 2sons 3of Israel] with their chattel. 37 But if [3ascends not 1the 2cloud], they did not break camp till the day which [3ascended 1the 2cloud]. 38 For the cloud was upon the tent by day, and fire was upon it by night, before all Israel, in all their marchings.
