15 And thou shalt anoint them, as thou didst anoint their father, that they may minister unto me in the priest's office: for their anointing shall surely be an neverlasting priesthood throughout their generations.
16 Thus did Moses: oaccording to all that the LORD commanded him, so did he.
17 ¶And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, that the ptabernacle was reared up.
18 And Moses qreared up the tabernacle, and fastened his sockets, and set up the boards thereof, and put in the bars thereof, and reared up his pillars.
19 And rhe *spread abroad the tent over the tabernacle, and put the covering of the tent above upon it; as the LORD commanded Moses.
20 ¶And he took and put the stestimony into the ark, and set the *staves on the ark, and put the tmercy seat above upon the ark:
21 And he brought the ark into the tabernacle, and uset up the *vail of the covering, and covered the ark of the testimony; as the LORD commanded Moses.
22 ¶And he vput the table in the tent of the congregation, upon the side of the tabernacle northward, *without the *vail.
23 And he wset the bread in order upon it before the LORD; as the LORD had commanded Moses.

24 ¶And he put the xcandlestick in the tent of the congregation, over against the table, on the side of the tabernacle southward.
25 And he lighted the lamps before the LORD; as the LORD commanded Moses.
26 ¶And yhe put the golden altar in the tent of the congregation before the *vail:
27 And he burnt sweet incense thereon; as the LORD commanded Moses.
28 ¶And he set up the zhanging at the door of the tabernacle.
29 And he aput the altar of burnt offering by the door of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation, and offered upon it the burnt offering and bthe meat offering; as the LORD commanded Moses.
30 ¶And he set cthe *laver between the tent of the congregation and the altar, and put water there, to wash *withal.
31 And Moses and Aaron and his sons dwashed their hands and their feet thereat:
32 When they went into the tent of the congregation, and when they came near unto the altar, they washed; as ethe LORD commanded Moses.
33 And he freared up the court round about the tabernacle and the altar, and set up the ghanging of the court gate. So Moses finished the work.
34 ¶Then ha cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.

35 And Moses was inot able to enter into the tent of the congregation, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
36 And jwhen the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel 3went onward in all their journeys:
37 But kif the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up.
38 For the cloud of the LORD was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.
