Exodus - Chapter 40
1 Yahweh then spoke to Moses and said,
2 'On the first day of the first month, you will erect the Dwelling, the Tent of Meeting,
7 and you will place the basin between the Tent of Meeting and the altar, and fill it with water.
8 You will then set up the surrounding court and hang the screen at the gateway of the court.
11 You will then anoint the basin and its stand, and consecrate it.
13 and then dress Aaron in the sacred vestments, and anoint and consecrate him, to serve me in the priesthood.
14 You will then bring his sons, dress them in tunics
16 Moses did this; he did exactly as Yahweh had ordered him.
19 He spread the tent over the Dwelling and the covering for the tent over that, as Yahweh had ordered Moses.
21 He brought the ark into the Dwelling and put the screening curtain in place, screening the ark of the Testimony, as Yahweh had ordered Moses.
23 and on it arranged the loaves before Yahweh, as Yahweh had ordered Moses.
25 and set up the lamps before Yahweh, as Yahweh had ordered Moses.
27 and on it burnt fragrant incense, as Yahweh had ordered Moses.
31 where Moses, Aaron and his sons washed their hands and feet,
32 whenever they entered the Tent of Meeting or approached the altar they washed, as Yahweh had ordered Moses.
33 He then set up the court round the Dwelling and the altar and set up the screen at the gate-way to the court. Thus Moses completed the work.
36 At every stage of their journey, whenever the cloud rose from the Dwelling, the Israelites would resume their march.
