29:1 And this is the thing that thou shalt
do unto them to hallow them, to minister unto me in the priest's
office: Take one young bullock, and two rams without blemish,
29:2 And unleavened bread, and cakes
unleavened tempered with oil, and wafers unleavened anointed with oil:
of wheaten flour shalt thou make them.
29:3 And thou shalt put them into one
basket, and bring them in the basket, with the bullock and the two
29:4 And Aaron and his sons thou shalt
bring unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and shalt
wash them with water.
29:5 And thou shalt take the garments, and
put upon Aaron the coat, and the robe of the ephod, and the ephod, and
the breastplate, and gird him with the curious girdle of the ephod:
29:6 And thou shalt put the mitre upon his
head, and put the holy crown upon the mitre.
29:7 Then shalt thou take the anointing
oil, and pour it upon his head, and anoint him.
29:8 And thou shalt bring his sons, and put
coats upon them.
29:9 And thou shalt gird them with girdles,
Aaron and his sons, and put the bonnets on them: and the priest's
office shall be theirs for a perpetual statute: and thou shalt
consecrate Aaron and his sons.
29:10 And thou shalt cause a bullock to be
brought before the tabernacle of the congregation: and Aaron and his
sons shall put their hands upon the head of the bullock.
29:11 And thou shalt kill the bullock
before the LORD, by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
29:12 And thou shalt take of the blood of
the bullock, and put it upon the horns of the altar with thy finger,
and pour all the blood beside the bottom of the altar.
29:13 And thou shalt take all the fat that
covereth the inwards, and the caul that is above the liver, and the
two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, and burn them upon the
29:14 But the flesh of the bullock, and his
skin, and his dung, shalt thou burn with fire without the camp: it is
a sin offering.
29:15 Thou shalt also take one ram; and
Aaron and his sons shall put their hands upon the head of the ram.
29:16 And thou shalt slay the ram, and thou
shalt take his blood, and sprinkle it round about upon the altar.
29:17 And thou shalt cut the ram in pieces,
and wash the inwards of him, and his legs, and put them unto his
pieces, and unto his head.
29:18 And thou shalt burn the whole ram
upon the altar: it is a burnt offering unto the LORD: it is a sweet
savour, an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
29:19 And thou shalt take the other ram;
and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands upon the head of the ram.
29:20 Then shalt thou kill the ram, and
take of his blood, and put it upon the tip of the right ear of Aaron,
and upon the tip of the right ear of his sons, and upon the thumb of
their right hand, and upon the great toe of their right foot, and
sprinkle the blood upon the altar round about.
29:21 And thou shalt take of the blood that
is upon the altar, and of the anointing oil, and sprinkle it upon
Aaron, and upon his garments, and upon his sons, and upon the garments
of his sons with him: and he shall be hallowed, and his garments, and
his sons, and his sons' garments with him.
29:22 Also thou shalt take of the ram the
fat and the rump, and the fat that covereth the inwards, and the caul
above the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them,
and the right shoulder; for it is a ram of consecration:
29:23 And one loaf of bread, and one cake
of oiled bread, and one wafer out of the basket of the unleavened
bread that is before the LORD:
29:24 And thou shalt put all in the hands
of Aaron, and in the hands of his sons; and shalt wave them for a wave
offering before the LORD.
29:25 And thou shalt receive them of their
hands, and burn them upon the altar for a burnt offering, for a sweet
savour before the LORD: it is an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
29:26 And thou shalt take the breast of the
ram of Aaron's consecration, and wave it for a wave offering before the LORD: and it shall be thy part.
29:27 And thou shalt sanctify the breast of
the wave offering, and the shoulder of the heave offering, which is
waved, and which is heaved up, of the ram of the consecration, even of
that which is for Aaron, and of that which is for his sons:
29:28 And it shall be Aaron's and his sons'
by a statute for ever from the children of Israel: for it is an heave
offering: and it shall be an heave offering from the children of
Israel of the sacrifice of their peace offerings, even their heave
offering unto the LORD.
29:29 And the holy garments of Aaron shall
be his sons' after him, to be anointed therein, and to be consecrated
29:30 And that son that is priest in his
stead shall put them on seven days, when he cometh into the tabernacle
of the congregation to minister in the holy place.
29:31 And thou shalt take the ram of the
consecration, and seethe his flesh in the holy place.
29:32 And Aaron and his sons shall eat the
flesh of the ram, and the bread that is in the basket by the door of
the tabernacle of the congregation.
29:33 And they shall eat those things
wherewith the atonement was made, to consecrate and to sanctify them:
but a stranger shall not eat thereof, because they are holy.
29:34 And if ought of the flesh of the
consecrations, or of the bread, remain unto the morning, then thou
shalt burn the remainder with fire: it shall not be eaten, because it
29:35 And thus shalt thou do unto Aaron,
and to his sons, according to all things which I have commanded thee:
seven days shalt thou consecrate them.
29:36 And thou shalt offer every day a
bullock for a sin offering for atonement: and thou shalt cleanse the
altar, when thou hast made an atonement for it, and thou shalt anoint
it, to sanctify it.
29:37 Seven days thou shalt make an
atonement for the altar, and sanctify it; and it shall be an altar
most holy: whatsoever toucheth the altar shall be holy.
29:38 Now this is that which thou shalt
offer upon the altar; two lambs of the first year day by day
29:39 The one lamb thou shalt offer in the
morning; and the other lamb thou shalt offer at even:
29:40 And with the one lamb a tenth deal of
flour mingled with the fourth part of an hin of beaten oil; and the
fourth part of an hin of wine for a drink offering.
29:41 And the other lamb thou shalt offer
at even, and shalt do thereto according to the meat offering of the
morning, and according to the drink offering thereof, for a sweet
savour, an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
29:42 This shall be a continual burnt
offering throughout your generations at the door of the tabernacle of
the congregation before the LORD: where I will meet you, to speak
there unto thee.
29:43 And there I will meet with the
children of Israel, and the tabernacle shall be sanctified by my
29:44 And I will sanctify the tabernacle of
the congregation, and the altar: I will sanctify also both Aaron and
his sons, to minister to me in the priest's office.
29:45 And I will dwell among the children
of Israel, and will be their God.
29:46 And they shall know that I am the LORD
their God, that brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I
may dwell among them: I am the LORD their God.
30:1 And thou shalt make an altar to burn
incense upon: of shittim wood shalt thou make it.
30:2 A cubit shall be the length thereof,
and a cubit the breadth thereof; foursquare shall it be: and two
cubits shall be the height thereof: the horns thereof shall be of the
30:3 And thou shalt overlay it with pure
gold, the top thereof, and the sides thereof round about, and the
horns thereof; and thou shalt make unto it a crown of gold round
30:4 And two golden rings shalt thou make
to it under the crown of it, by the two corners thereof, upon the two
sides of it shalt thou make it; and they shall be for places for the
staves to bear it withal.
30:5 And thou shalt make the staves of
shittim wood, and overlay them with gold.
30:6 And thou shalt put it before the vail
that is by the ark of the testimony, before the mercy seat that is
over the testimony, where I will meet with thee.
30:7 And Aaron shall burn thereon sweet
incense every morning: when he dresseth the lamps, he shall burn
incense upon it.
30:8 And when Aaron lighteth the lamps at
even, he shall burn incense upon it, a perpetual incense before the LORD
throughout your generations.
30:9 Ye shall offer no strange incense
thereon, nor burnt sacrifice, nor meat offering; neither shall ye pour
drink offering thereon.
30:10 And Aaron shall make an atonement
upon the horns of it once in a year with the blood of the sin offering
of atonements: once in the year shall he make atonement upon it
throughout your generations: it is most holy unto the LORD.
30:11 And the LORD spake unto Moses,
30:12 When thou takest the sum of the
children of Israel after their number, then shall they give every man
a ransom for his soul unto the LORD, when thou numberest them; that
there be no plague among them, when thou numberest them.
30:13 This they shall give, every one that
passeth among them that are numbered, half a shekel after the shekel
of the sanctuary: (a shekel is twenty gerahs:) an half shekel shall be
the offering of the LORD.
30:14 Every one that passeth among them
that are numbered, from twenty years old and above, shall give an
offering unto the LORD.
30:15 The rich shall not give more, and the
poor shall not give less than half a shekel, when they give an
offering unto the LORD, to make an atonement for your souls.
30:16 And thou shalt take the atonement
money of the children of Israel, and shalt appoint it for the service
of the tabernacle of the congregation; that it may be a memorial unto
the children of Israel before the LORD, to make an atonement for your
30:17 And the LORD spake unto Moses,
30:18 Thou shalt also make a laver of
brass, and his foot also of brass, to wash withal: and thou shalt put
it between the tabernacle of the congregation and the altar, and thou
shalt put water therein.
30:19 For Aaron and his sons shall wash
their hands and their feet thereat:
30:20 When they go into the tabernacle of
the congregation, they shall wash with water, that they die not; or
when they come near to the altar to minister, to burn offering made by
fire unto the LORD:
30:21 So they shall wash their hands and
their feet, that they die not: and it shall be a statute for ever to
them, even to him and to his seed throughout their generations.
30:22 Moreover the LORD spake unto Moses,
30:23 Take thou also unto thee principal
spices, of pure myrrh five hundred shekels, and of sweet cinnamon half
so much, even two hundred and fifty shekels, and of sweet calamus two
hundred and fifty shekels,
30:24 And of cassia five hundred shekels,
after the shekel of the sanctuary, and of oil olive an hin:
30:25 And thou shalt make it an oil of holy
ointment, an ointment compound after the art of the apothecary: it
shall be an holy anointing oil.
30:26 And thou shalt anoint the tabernacle
of the congregation therewith, and the ark of the testimony,
30:27 And the table and all his vessels,
and the candlestick and his vessels, and the altar of incense,
30:28 And the altar of burnt offering with
all his vessels, and the laver and his foot.
30:29 And thou shalt sanctify them, that
they may be most holy: whatsoever toucheth them shall be holy.
30:30 And thou shalt anoint Aaron and his
sons, and consecrate them, that they may minister unto me in the
30:31 And thou shalt speak unto the
children of Israel, saying, This shall be an holy anointing oil unto
me throughout your generations.
30:32 Upon man's flesh shall it not be
poured, neither shall ye make any other like it, after the composition
of it: it is holy, and it shall be holy unto you.
30:33 Whosoever compoundeth any like it, or
whosoever putteth any of it upon a stranger, shall even be cut off
from his people.
30:34 And the LORD said unto Moses, Take
unto thee sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; these sweet
spices with pure frankincense: of each shall there be a like weight:
30:35 And thou shalt make it a perfume, a
confection after the art of the apothecary, tempered together, pure
30:36 And thou shalt beat some of it very
small, and put of it before the testimony in the tabernacle of the
congregation, where I will meet with thee: it shall be unto you most
30:37 And as for the perfume which thou
shalt make, ye shall not make to yourselves according to the
composition thereof: it shall be unto thee holy for the LORD.
30:38 Whosoever shall make like unto that,
to smell thereto, shall even be cut off from his people.
31:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
31:2 See, I have called by name Bezaleel
the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah:
31:3 And I have filled him with the spirit
of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all
manner of workmanship,
31:4 To devise cunning works, to work in
gold, and in silver, and in brass,
31:5 And in cutting of stones, to set them,
and in carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship.
31:6 And I, behold, I have given with him
Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts
of all that are wise hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all
that I have commanded thee;
31:7 The tabernacle of the congregation,
and the ark of the testimony, and the mercy seat that is thereupon,
and all the furniture of the tabernacle,
31:8 And the table and his furniture, and
the pure candlestick with all his furniture, and the altar of incense,
31:9 And the altar of burnt offering with
all his furniture, and the laver and his foot,
31:10 And the cloths of service, and the
holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to
minister in the priest's office,
31:11 And the anointing oil, and sweet
incense for the holy place: according to all that I have commanded
thee shall they do.
31:12 And the LORD spake unto Moses,
31:13 Speak thou also unto the children of
Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign
between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that
I am the LORD that doth sanctify you.
31:14 Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore;
for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be
put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be
cut off from among his people.
31:15 Six days may work be done; but in the
seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any
work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.
31:16 Wherefore the children of Israel
shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their
generations, for a perpetual covenant.
31:17 It is a sign between me and the
children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and
earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.
31:18 And he gave unto Moses, when he had
made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of
testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.
32:1 And when the people saw that Moses
delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves
together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall
go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of
the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
32:2 And Aaron said unto them, Break off
the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your
sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me.
32:3 And all the people brake off the
golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.
32:4 And he received them at their hand,
and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten
calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee
up out of the land of Egypt.
32:5 And when Aaron saw it, he built an
altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a
feast to the LORD.
32:6 And they rose up early on the morrow,
and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the
people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play.
32:7 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get
thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of
Egypt, have corrupted themselves:
32:8 They have turned aside quickly out of
the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and
have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be
thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of
32:9 And the LORD said unto Moses, I have
seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:
32:10 Now therefore let me alone, that my
wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I
will make of thee a great nation.
32:11 And Moses besought the LORD his God,
and said, Lord, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which
thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and
with a mighty hand?
32:12 Wherefore should the Egyptians speak,
and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the
mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from
thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people.
32:13 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel,
thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto
them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this
land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall
inherit it for ever.
32:14 And the LORD repented of the evil
which he thought to do unto his people.
32:15 And Moses turned, and went down from
the mount, and the two tables of the testimony were in his hand: the
tables were written on both their sides; on the one side and on the
other were they written.
32:16 And the tables were the work of God,
and the writing was the writing of God, graven upon the tables.
32:17 And when Joshua heard the noise of
the people as they shouted, he said unto Moses, There is a noise of
war in the camp.
32:18 And he said, It is not the voice of
them that shout for mastery, neither is it the voice of them that cry
for being overcome: but the noise of them that sing do I hear.
32:19 And it came to pass, as soon as he
came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and
Moses' anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and
brake them beneath the mount.
32:20 And he took the calf which they had
made, and burnt it in the fire, and ground it to powder, and strawed
it upon the water, and made the children of Israel drink of it.
32:21 And Moses said unto Aaron, What did
this people unto thee, that thou hast brought so great a sin upon
32:22 And Aaron said, Let not the anger of
my lord wax hot: thou knowest the people, that they are set on
32:23 For they said unto me, Make us gods,
which shall go before us: for as for this Moses, the man that brought
us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
32:24 And I said unto them, Whosoever hath
any gold, let them break it off. So they gave it me: then I cast it
into the fire, and there came out this calf.
32:25 And when Moses saw that the people
were naked; (for Aaron had made them naked unto their shame among
32:26 Then Moses stood in the gate of the
camp, and said, Who is on the LORD's side? let him come unto me. And
all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him.
32:27 And he said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and
out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his
brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour.
32:28 And the children of Levi did
according to the word of Moses: and there fell of the people that day
about three thousand men.
32:29 For Moses had said, Consecrate
yourselves today to the LORD, even every man upon his son, and upon
his brother; that he may bestow upon you a blessing this day.
32:30 And it came to pass on the morrow,
that Moses said unto the people, Ye have sinned a great sin: and now I
will go up unto the LORD; peradventure I shall make an atonement for
32:31 And Moses returned unto the LORD, and
said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods
32:32 Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their
sin--; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou
32:33 And the LORD said unto Moses,
Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.
32:34 Therefore now go, lead the people
unto the place of which I have spoken unto thee: behold, mine Angel
shall go before thee: nevertheless in the day when I visit I will
visit their sin upon them.
32:35 And the LORD plagued the people,
because they made the calf, which Aaron made.
33:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, Depart,
and go up hence, thou and the people which thou hast brought up out of
the land of Egypt, unto the land which I sware unto Abraham, to Isaac,
and to Jacob, saying, Unto thy seed will I give it:
33:2 And I will send an angel before thee;
and I will drive out the Canaanite, the Amorite, and the Hittite, and
the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite:
33:3 Unto a land flowing with milk and
honey: for I will not go up in the midst of thee; for thou art a
stiffnecked people: lest I consume thee in the way.
33:4 And when the people heard these evil
tidings, they mourned: and no man did put on him his ornaments.
33:5 For the LORD had said unto Moses, Say
unto the children of Israel, Ye are a stiffnecked people: I will come
up into the midst of thee in a moment, and consume thee: therefore now
put off thy ornaments from thee, that I may know what to do unto thee.
33:6 And the children of Israel stripped
themselves of their ornaments by the mount Horeb.
33:7 And Moses took the tabernacle, and
pitched it without the camp, afar off from the camp, and called it the
Tabernacle of the congregation. And it came to pass, that every one
which sought the LORD went out unto the tabernacle of the
congregation, which was without the camp.
33:8 And it came to pass, when Moses went
out unto the tabernacle, that all the people rose up, and stood every
man at his tent door, and looked after Moses, until he was gone into
33:9 And it came to pass, as Moses entered
into the tabernacle, the cloudy pillar descended, and stood at the
door of the tabernacle, and the Lord talked with Moses.
33:10 And all the people saw the cloudy
pillar stand at the tabernacle door: and all the people rose up and
worshipped, every man in his tent door.
33:11 And the LORD spake unto Moses face to
face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the
camp: but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed
not out of the tabernacle.
33:12 And Moses said unto the LORD, See,
thou sayest unto me, Bring up this people: and thou hast not let me
know whom thou wilt send with me. Yet thou hast said, I know thee by
name, and thou hast also found grace in my sight.
33:13 Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have
found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee,
that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is
33:14 And he said, My presence shall go
with thee, and I will give thee rest.
33:15 And he said unto him, If thy presence
go not with me, carry us not up hence.
33:16 For wherein shall it be known here
that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that
thou goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from
all the people that are upon the face of the earth.
33:17 And the LORD said unto Moses, I will
do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in
my sight, and I know thee by name.
33:18 And he said, I beseech thee, shew me
33:19 And he said, I will make all my
goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD
before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will
shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.
33:20 And he said, Thou canst not see my
face: for there shall no man see me, and live.
33:21 And the LORD said, Behold, there is a
place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock:
33:22 And it shall come to pass, while my
glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and
will cover thee with my hand while I pass by:
33:23 And I will take away mine hand, and
thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.
34:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, Hew thee
two tables of stone like unto the first: and I will write upon these
tables the words that were in the first tables, which thou brakest.
34:2 And be ready in the morning, and come
up in the morning unto mount Sinai, and present thyself there to me in
the top of the mount.
34:3 And no man shall come up with thee,
neither let any man be seen throughout all the mount; neither let the
flocks nor herds feed before that mount.
34:4 And he hewed two tables of stone like
unto the first; and Moses rose up early in the morning, and went up
unto mount Sinai, as the LORD had commanded him, and took in his hand
the two tables of stone.
34:5 And the LORD descended in the cloud,
and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD.
34:6 And the LORD passed by before him, and
proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious,
longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,
34:7 Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving
iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear
the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children,
and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth
34:8 And Moses made haste, and bowed his
head toward the earth, and worshipped.
34:9 And he said, If now I have found grace
in thy sight, O Lord, let my Lord, I pray thee, go among us; for it is
a stiffnecked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us
for thine inheritance.
34:10 And he said, Behold, I make a
covenant: before all thy people I will do marvels, such as have not
been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people
among which thou art shall see the work of the LORD: for it is a
terrible thing that I will do with thee.
34:11 Observe thou that which I command
thee this day: behold, I drive out before thee the Amorite, and the
Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the
34:12 Take heed to thyself, lest thou make
a covenant with the inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest
it be for a snare in the midst of thee:
34:13 But ye shall destroy their altars,
break their images, and cut down their groves:
34:14 For thou shalt worship no other god:
for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:
34:15 Lest thou make a covenant with the
inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their gods, and
do sacrifice unto their gods, and one call thee, and thou eat of his
34:16 And thou take of their daughters unto
thy sons, and their daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make
thy sons go a whoring after their gods.
34:17 Thou shalt make thee no molten gods.
34:18 The feast of unleavened bread shalt
thou keep. Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, as I commanded
thee, in the time of the month Abib: for in the month Abib thou camest
out from Egypt.
34:19 All that openeth the matrix is mine;
and every firstling among thy cattle, whether ox or sheep, that is
34:20 But the firstling of an ass thou
shalt redeem with a lamb: and if thou redeem him not, then shalt thou
break his neck. All the firstborn of thy sons thou shalt redeem. And
none shall appear before me empty.
34:21 Six days thou shalt work, but on the
seventh day thou shalt rest: in earing time and in harvest thou shalt
34:22 And thou shalt observe the feast of
weeks, of the firstfruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of
ingathering at the year's end.
34:23 Thrice in the year shall all your
menchildren appear before the LORD God, the God of Israel.
34:24 For I will cast out the nations
before thee, and enlarge thy borders: neither shall any man desire thy
land, when thou shalt go up to appear before the LORD thy God thrice
in the year.
34:25 Thou shalt not offer the blood of my
sacrifice with leaven; neither shall the sacrifice of the feast of the
passover be left unto the morning.
34:26 The first of the firstfruits of thy
land thou shalt bring unto the house of the LORD thy God. Thou shalt
not seethe a kid in his mother's milk.
34:27 And the LORD said unto Moses, Write
thou these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a
covenant with thee and with Israel.
34:28 And he was there with the LORD forty
days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And
he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten
34:29 And it came to pass, when Moses came
down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses' hand,
when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of
his face shone while he talked with him.
34:30 And when Aaron and all the children
of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were
afraid to come nigh him.
34:31 And Moses called unto them; and Aaron
and all the rulers of the congregation returned unto him: and Moses
talked with them.
34:32 And afterward all the children of
Israel came nigh: and he gave them in commandment all that the LORD
had spoken with him in mount Sinai.
34:33 And till Moses had done speaking with
them, he put a vail on his face.
34:34 But when Moses went in before the LORD
to speak with him, he took the vail off, until he came out. And he
came out, and spake unto the children of Israel that which he was
34:35 And the children of Israel saw the
face of Moses, that the skin of Moses' face shone: and Moses put the
vail upon his face again, until he went in to speak with him.
35:1 And Moses gathered all the
congregation of the children of Israel together, and said unto them,
These are the words which the LORD hath commanded, that ye should do
35:2 Six days shall work be done, but on
the seventh day there shall be to you an holy day, a sabbath of rest
to the LORD: whosoever doeth work therein shall be put to death.
35:3 Ye shall kindle no fire throughout
your habitations upon the sabbath day.
35:4 And Moses spake unto all the
congregation of the children of Israel, saying, This is the thing
which the LORD commanded, saying,
35:5 Take ye from among you an offering
unto the LORD: whosoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it, an
offering of the LORD; gold, and silver, and brass,
35:6 And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and
fine linen, and goats' hair,
35:7 And rams' skins dyed red, and badgers'
skins, and shittim wood,
35:8 And oil for the light, and spices for
anointing oil, and for the sweet incense,
35:9 And onyx stones, and stones to be set
for the ephod, and for the breastplate.
35:10 And every wise hearted among you
shall come, and make all that the LORD hath commanded;
35:11 The tabernacle, his tent, and his
covering, his taches, and his boards, his bars, his pillars, and his
35:12 The ark, and the staves thereof, with
the mercy seat, and the vail of the covering,
35:13 The table, and his staves, and all
his vessels, and the shewbread,
35:14 The candlestick also for the light,
and his furniture, and his lamps, with the oil for the light,
35:15 And the incense altar, and his
staves, and the anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and the hanging
for the door at the entering in of the tabernacle,
35:16 The altar of burnt offering, with his
brasen grate, his staves, and all his vessels, the laver and his foot,
35:17 The hangings of the court, his
pillars, and their sockets, and the hanging for the door of the court,
35:18 The pins of the tabernacle, and the
pins of the court, and their cords,
35:19 The cloths of service, to do service
in the holy place, the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the
garments of his sons, to minister in the priest's office.
35:20 And all the congregation of the
children of Israel departed from the presence of Moses.
35:21 And they came, every one whose heart
stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing, and they
brought the LORD's offering to the work of the tabernacle of the
congregation, and for all his service, and for the holy garments.
35:22 And they came, both men and women, as
many as were willing hearted, and brought bracelets, and earrings, and
rings, and tablets, all jewels of gold: and every man that offered
offered an offering of gold unto the LORD.
35:23 And every man, with whom was found
blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair, and
red skins of rams, and badgers' skins, brought them.
35:24 Every one that did offer an offering
of silver and brass brought the LORD's offering: and every man, with
whom was found shittim wood for any work of the service, brought it.
35:25 And all the women that were wise
hearted did spin with their hands, and brought that which they had
spun, both of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine linen.
35:26 And all the women whose heart stirred
them up in wisdom spun goats' hair.
35:27 And the rulers brought onyx stones,
and stones to be set, for the ephod, and for the breastplate;
35:28 And spice, and oil for the light, and
for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense.
35:29 The children of Israel brought a
willing offering unto the LORD, every man and woman, whose heart made
them willing to bring for all manner of work, which the LORD had
commanded to be made by the hand of Moses.
35:30 And Moses said unto the children of
Israel, See, the LORD hath called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the
son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah;
35:31 And he hath filled him with the
spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in
all manner of workmanship;
35:32 And to devise curious works, to work
in gold, and in silver, and in brass,
35:33 And in the cutting of stones, to set
them, and in carving of wood, to make any manner of cunning work.
35:34 And he hath put in his heart that he
may teach, both he, and Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of
35:35 Them hath he filled with wisdom of
heart, to work all manner of work, of the engraver, and of the cunning
workman, and of the embroiderer, in blue, and in purple, in scarlet,
and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of them that do any work,
and of those that devise cunning work.
36:1 Then wrought Bezaleel and Aholiab, and
every wise hearted man, in whom the LORD put wisdom and understanding
to know how to work all manner of work for the service of the
sanctuary, according to all that the LORD had commanded.
36:2 And Moses called Bezaleel and Aholiab,
and every wise hearted man, in whose heart the LORD had put wisdom,
even every one whose heart stirred him up to come unto the work to do
36:3 And they received of Moses all the
offering, which the children of Israel had brought for the work of the
service of the sanctuary, to make it withal. And they brought yet unto
him free offerings every morning.
36:4 And all the wise men, that wrought all
the work of the sanctuary, came every man from his work which they
36:5 And they spake unto Moses, saying, The
people bring much more than enough for the service of the work, which
the LORD commanded to make.
36:6 And Moses gave commandment, and they
caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, Let neither
man nor woman make any more work for the offering of the sanctuary. So
the people were restrained from bringing.
36:7 For the stuff they had was sufficient
for all the work to make it, and too much.
36:8 And every wise hearted man among them
that wrought the work of the tabernacle made ten curtains of fine
twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubims of
cunning work made he them.
36:9 The length of one curtain was twenty
and eight cubits, and the breadth of one curtain four cubits: the
curtains were all of one size.
36:10 And he coupled the five curtains one
unto another: and the other five curtains he coupled one unto another.
36:11 And he made loops of blue on the edge
of one curtain from the selvedge in the coupling: likewise he made in
the uttermost side of another curtain, in the coupling of the second.
36:12 Fifty loops made he in one curtain,
and fifty loops made he in the edge of the curtain which was in the
coupling of the second: the loops held one curtain to another.
36:13 And he made fifty taches of gold, and
coupled the curtains one unto another with the taches: so it became
36:14 And he made curtains of goats' hair
for the tent over the tabernacle: eleven curtains he made them.
36:15 The length of one curtain was thirty
cubits, and four cubits was the breadth of one curtain: the eleven
curtains were of one size.
36:16 And he coupled five curtains by
themselves, and six curtains by themselves.
36:17 And he made fifty loops upon the
uttermost edge of the curtain in the coupling, and fifty loops made he
upon the edge of the curtain which coupleth the second.
36:18 And he made fifty taches of brass to
couple the tent together, that it might be one.
36:19 And he made a covering for the tent
of rams' skins dyed red, and a covering of badgers' skins above that.
36:20 And he made boards for the tabernacle
of shittim wood, standing up.
36:21 The length of a board was ten cubits,
and the breadth of a board one cubit and a half.
36:22 One board had two tenons, equally
distant one from another: thus did he make for all the boards of the
36:23 And he made boards for the
tabernacle; twenty boards for the south side southward:
36:24 And forty sockets of silver he made
under the twenty boards; two sockets under one board for his two
tenons, and two sockets under another board for his two tenons.
36:25 And for the other side of the
tabernacle, which is toward the north corner, he made twenty boards,
36:26 And their forty sockets of silver;
two sockets under one board, and two sockets under another board.
36:27 And for the sides of the tabernacle
westward he made six boards.
36:28 And two boards made he for the
corners of the tabernacle in the two sides.
36:29 And they were coupled beneath, and
coupled together at the head thereof, to one ring: thus he did to both
of them in both the corners.
36:30 And there were eight boards; and
their sockets were sixteen sockets of silver, under every board two
36:31 And he made bars of shittim wood;
five for the boards of the one side of the tabernacle,
36:32 And five bars for the boards of the
other side of the tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the
tabernacle for the sides westward.
36:33 And he made the middle bar to shoot
through the boards from the one end to the other.
36:34 And he overlaid the boards with gold,
and made their rings of gold to be places for the bars, and overlaid
the bars with gold.
36:35 And he made a vail of blue, and
purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen: with cherubims made he it
of cunning work.
36:36 And he made thereunto four pillars of
shittim wood, and overlaid them with gold: their hooks were of gold;
and he cast for them four sockets of silver.
36:37 And he made an hanging for the
tabernacle door of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined
linen, of needlework;
36:38 And the five pillars of it with their
hooks: and he overlaid their chapiters and their fillets with gold:
but their five sockets were of brass.
37:1 And Bezaleel made the ark of shittim
wood: two cubits and a half was the length of it, and a cubit and a
half the breadth of it, and a cubit and a half the height of it:
37:2 And he overlaid it with pure gold
within and without, and made a crown of gold to it round about.
37:3 And he cast for it four rings of gold,
to be set by the four corners of it; even two rings upon the one side
of it, and two rings upon the other side of it.
37:4 And he made staves of shittim wood,
and overlaid them with gold.
37:5 And he put the staves into the rings
by the sides of the ark, to bear the ark.
37:6 And he made the mercy seat of pure
gold: two cubits and a half was the length thereof, and one cubit and
a half the breadth thereof.
37:7 And he made two cherubims of gold,
beaten out of one piece made he them, on the two ends of the mercy
37:8 One cherub on the end on this side,
and another cherub on the other end on that side: out of the mercy
seat made he the cherubims on the two ends thereof.
37:9 And the cherubims spread out their
wings on high, and covered with their wings over the mercy seat, with
their faces one to another; even to the mercy seatward were the faces
of the cherubims.
37:10 And he made the table of shittim
wood: two cubits was the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth
thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof:
37:11 And he overlaid it with pure gold,
and made thereunto a crown of gold round about.
37:12 Also he made thereunto a border of an
handbreadth round about; and made a crown of gold for the border
thereof round about.
37:13 And he cast for it four rings of
gold, and put the rings upon the four corners that were in the four
37:14 Over against the border were the
rings, the places for the staves to bear the table.
37:15 And he made the staves of shittim
wood, and overlaid them with gold, to bear the table.
37:16 And he made the vessels which were
upon the table, his dishes, and his spoons, and his bowls, and his
covers to cover withal, of pure gold.
37:17 And he made the candlestick of pure
gold: of beaten work made he the candlestick; his shaft, and his
branch, his bowls, his knops, and his flowers, were of the same:
37:18 And six branches going out of the
sides thereof; three branches of the candlestick out of the one side
thereof, and three branches of the candlestick out of the other side
37:19 Three bowls made after the fashion of
almonds in one branch, a knop and a flower; and three bowls made like
almonds in another branch, a knop and a flower: so throughout the six
branches going out of the candlestick.
37:20 And in the candlestick were four
bowls made like almonds, his knops, and his flowers:
37:21 And a knop under two branches of the
same, and a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two
branches of the same, according to the six branches going out of it.
37:22 Their knops and their branches were
of the same: all of it was one beaten work of pure gold.
37:23 And he made his seven lamps, and his
snuffers, and his snuffdishes, of pure gold.
37:24 Of a talent of pure gold made he it,
and all the vessels thereof.
37:25 And he made the incense altar of
shittim wood: the length of it was a cubit, and the breadth of it a
cubit; it was foursquare; and two cubits was the height of it; the
horns thereof were of the same.
37:26 And he overlaid it with pure gold,
both the top of it, and the sides thereof round about, and the horns
of it: also he made unto it a crown of gold round about.
37:27 And he made two rings of gold for it
under the crown thereof, by the two corners of it, upon the two sides
thereof, to be places for the staves to bear it withal.
37:28 And he made the staves of shittim
wood, and overlaid them with gold.
37:29 And he made the holy anointing oil,
and the pure incense of sweet spices, according to the work of the

offering of shittim wood: five cubits was the length thereof, and five
cubits the breadth thereof; it was foursquare; and three cubits the
38:2 And he made the horns thereof on the
four corners of it; the horns thereof were of the same: and he
overlaid it with brass.
38:3 And he made all the vessels of the
altar, the pots, and the shovels, and the basons, and the fleshhooks,
and the firepans: all the vessels thereof made he of brass.
38:4 And he made for the altar a brasen
grate of network under the compass thereof beneath unto the midst of
38:5 And he cast four rings for the four
ends of the grate of brass, to be places for the staves.
38:6 And he made the staves of shittim
wood, and overlaid them with brass.
38:7 And he put the staves into the rings
on the sides of the altar, to bear it withal; he made the altar hollow
38:8 And he made the laver of brass, and
the foot of it of brass, of the lookingglasses of the women
assembling, which assembled at the door of the tabernacle of the

gate were fifteen cubits; their pillars three, and their sockets
38:15 And for the other side of the court
gate, on this hand and that hand, were hangings of fifteen cubits;
their pillars three, and their sockets three.
38:16 All the hangings of the court round
about were of fine twined linen.
38:17 And the sockets for the pillars were
of brass; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets of silver; and
the overlaying of their chapiters of silver; and all the pillars of
the court were filleted with silver.
38:18 And the hanging for the gate of the
court was needlework, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine
twined linen: and twenty cubits was the length, and the height in the
breadth was five cubits, answerable to the hangings of the court.
38:19 And their pillars were four, and
their sockets of brass four; their hooks of silver, and the overlaying
of their chapiters and their fillets of silver.
38:20 And all the pins of the tabernacle,
and of the court round about, were of brass.
38:21 This is the sum of the tabernacle,
even of the tabernacle of testimony, as it was counted, according to
the commandment of Moses, for the service of the Levites, by the hand
of Ithamar, son to Aaron the priest.
38:22 And Bezaleel the son Uri, the son of
Hur, of the tribe of Judah, made all that the LORD commanded Moses.
38:23 And with him was Aholiab, son of
Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, an engraver, and a cunning workman,
and an embroiderer in blue, and in purple, and in scarlet, and fine
38:24 All the gold that was occupied for
the work in all the work of the holy place, even the gold of the
offering, was twenty and nine talents, and seven hundred and thirty
shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary.
38:25 And the silver of them that were
numbered of the congregation was an hundred talents, and a thousand
seven hundred and threescore and fifteen shekels, after the shekel of
38:26 A bekah for every man, that is, half
a shekel, after the shekel of the sanctuary, for every one that went
to be numbered, from twenty years old and upward, for six hundred
thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty men.
38:27 And of the hundred talents of silver
were cast the sockets of the sanctuary, and the sockets of the vail;
an hundred sockets of the hundred talents, a talent for a socket.
38:28 And of the thousand seven hundred
seventy and five shekels he made hooks for the pillars, and overlaid
their chapiters, and filleted them.
38:29 And the brass of the offering was
seventy talents, and two thousand and four hundred shekels.
38:30 And therewith he made the sockets to
the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and the brasen altar,
and the brasen grate for it, and all the vessels of the altar,
38:31 And the sockets of the court round
about, and the sockets of the court gate, and all the pins of the
tabernacle, and all the pins of the court round about.
39:1 And of the blue, and purple, and
scarlet, they made cloths of service, to do service in the holy place,
and made the holy garments for Aaron; as the LORD commanded Moses.
39:2 And he made the ephod of gold, blue,
and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.
39:3 And they did beat the gold into thin
plates, and cut it into wires, to work it in the blue, and in the
purple, and in the scarlet, and in the fine linen, with cunning work.
39:4 They made shoulderpieces for it, to
couple it together: by the two edges was it coupled together.
39:5 And the curious girdle of his ephod,
that was upon it, was of the same, according to the work thereof; of
gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen; as the LORD
39:6 And they wrought onyx stones inclosed
in ouches of gold, graven, as signets are graven, with the names of
the children of Israel.
39:7 And he put them on the shoulders of
the ephod, that they should be stones for a memorial to the children
of Israel; as the LORD commanded Moses.
39:8 And he made the breastplate of cunning
work, like the work of the ephod; of gold, blue, and purple, and
scarlet, and fine twined linen.
39:9 It was foursquare; they made the
breastplate double: a span was the length thereof, and a span the
breadth thereof, being doubled.
39:10 And they set in it four rows of
stones: the first row was a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle: this
was the first row.
39:11 And the second row, an emerald, a
sapphire, and a diamond.
39:12 And the third row, a ligure, an
agate, and an amethyst.
39:13 And the fourth row, a beryl, an onyx,
and a jasper: they were inclosed in ouches of gold in their
39:14 And the stones were according to the
names of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names,
like the engravings of a signet, every one with his name, according to
the twelve tribes.
39:15 And they made upon the breastplate
chains at the ends, of wreathen work of pure gold.
39:16 And they made two ouches of gold, and
two gold rings; and put the two rings in the two ends of the
39:17 And they put the two wreathen chains
of gold in the two rings on the ends of the breastplate.
39:18 And the two ends of the two wreathen
chains they fastened in the two ouches, and put them on the
shoulderpieces of the ephod, before it.
39:19 And they made two rings of gold, and
put them on the two ends of the breastplate, upon the border of it,
which was on the side of the ephod inward.
39:20 And they made two other golden rings,
and put them on the two sides of the ephod underneath, toward the
forepart of it, over against the other coupling thereof, above the
curious girdle of the ephod.
39:21 And they did bind the breastplate by
his rings unto the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it
might be above the curious girdle of the ephod, and that the
breastplate might not be loosed from the ephod; as the LORD commanded
39:22 And he made the robe of the ephod of
woven work, all of blue.
39:23 And there was an hole in the midst of
the robe, as the hole of an habergeon, with a band round about the
hole, that it should not rend.
39:24 And they made upon the hems of the
robe pomegranates of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and twined linen.
39:25 And they made bells of pure gold, and
put the bells between the pomegranates upon the hem of the robe, round
about between the pomegranates;
39:26 A bell and a pomegranate, a bell and
a pomegranate, round about the hem of the robe to minister in; as the LORD
39:27 And they made coats of fine linen of
woven work for Aaron, and for his sons,
39:28 And a mitre of fine linen, and goodly
bonnets of fine linen, and linen breeches of fine twined linen,
39:29 And a girdle of fine twined linen,
and blue, and purple, and scarlet, of needlework; as the LORD
39:30 And they made the plate of the holy
crown of pure gold, and wrote upon it a writing, like to the
engravings of a signet, Holiness To The LORD.
39:31 And they tied unto it a lace of blue,
to fasten it on high upon the mitre; as the LORD commanded Moses.
39:32 Thus was all the work of the
tabernacle of the tent of the congregation finished: and the children
of Israel did according to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so did
39:33 And they brought the tabernacle unto
Moses, the tent, and all his furniture, his taches, his boards, his
bars, and his pillars, and his sockets,
39:34 And the covering of rams' skins dyed
red, and the covering of badgers' skins, and the vail of the covering,
39:35 The ark of the testimony, and the
staves thereof, and the mercy seat,
39:36 The table, and all the vessels
thereof, and the shewbread,
39:37 The pure candlestick, with the lamps
thereof, even with the lamps to be set in order, and all the vessels
thereof, and the oil for light,
39:38 And the golden altar, and the
anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and the hanging for the
39:39 The brasen altar, and his grate of
brass, his staves, and all his vessels, the laver and his foot,
39:40 The hangings of the court, his
pillars, and his sockets, and the hanging for the court gate, his
cords, and his pins, and all the vessels of the service of the
tabernacle, for the tent of the congregation,
39:41 The cloths of service to do service
in the holy place, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and his
sons' garments, to minister in the priest's office.
39:42 According to all that the LORD
commanded Moses, so the children of Israel made all the work.
39:43 And Moses did look upon all the work,
and, behold, they had done it as the LORD had commanded, even so had
they done it: and Moses blessed them.
40:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
40:2 On the first day of the first month
shalt thou set up the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.
40:3 And thou shalt put therein the ark of
the testimony, and cover the ark with the vail.
40:4 And thou shalt bring in the table, and
set in order the things that are to be set in order upon it; and thou
shalt bring in the candlestick, and light the lamps thereof.
40:5 And thou shalt set the altar of gold
for the incense before the ark of the testimony, and put the hanging
of the door to the tabernacle.
40:6 And thou shalt set the altar of the
burnt offering before the door of the tabernacle of the tent of the
40:7 And thou shalt set the laver between
the tent of the congregation and the altar, and shalt put water
40:8 And thou shalt set up the court round
about, and hang up the hanging at the court gate.
40:9 And thou shalt take the anointing oil,
and anoint the tabernacle, and all that is therein, and shalt hallow
it, and all the vessels thereof: and it shall be holy.
40:10 And thou shalt anoint the altar of
the burnt offering, and all his vessels, and sanctify the altar: and
it shall be an altar most holy.
40:11 And thou shalt anoint the laver and
his foot, and sanctify it.
40:12 And thou shalt bring Aaron and his
sons unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and wash
them with water.
40:13 And thou shalt put upon Aaron the
holy garments, and anoint him, and sanctify him; that he may minister
unto me in the priest's office.
40:14 And thou shalt bring his sons, and
clothe them with coats:
40:15 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 everlasting
priesthood throughout their generations.
40:16 Thus did Moses: according to all that
the LORD commanded him, so did he.
40:17 And it came to pass in the first
month in the second year, on the first day of the month, that the
tabernacle was reared up.
40:18 And Moses reared up the tabernacle,
and fastened his sockets, and set up the boards thereof, and put in
the bars thereof, and reared up his pillars.
40:19 And he spread abroad the tent over
the tabernacle, and put the covering of the tent above upon it; as the LORD commanded Moses.
40:20 And he took and put the testimony
into the ark, and set the staves on the ark, and put the mercy seat
above upon the ark:
40:21 And he brought the ark into the
tabernacle, and set up the vail of the covering, and covered the ark
of the testimony; as the LORD commanded Moses.
40:22 And he put the table in the tent of
the congregation, upon the side of the tabernacle northward, without
40:23 And he set the bread in order upon it
before the LORD; as the LORD had commanded Moses.
40:24 And he put the candlestick in the
tent of the congregation, over against the table, on the side of the
40:25 And he lighted the lamps before the LORD;
as the LORD commanded Moses.
40:26 And he put the golden altar in the
tent of the congregation before the vail:
40:27 And he burnt sweet incense thereon;
as the LORD commanded Moses.
40:28 And he set up the hanging at the door
of the tabernacle.
40:29 And he put 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 the meat
offering; as the LORD commanded Moses.
40:30 And he set the laver between the tent
of the congregation and the altar, and put water there, to wash
40:31 And Moses and Aaron and his sons
washed their hands and their feet thereat:
40:32 When they went into the tent of the
congregation, and when they came near unto the altar, they washed; as
the LORD commanded Moses.
40:33 And he reared up the court round
about the tabernacle and the altar, and set up the hanging of the
court gate. So Moses finished the work.
40:34 Then a cloud covered the tent of the
congregation, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
40:35 And Moses was not able to enter into
the tent of the congregation, because the cloud abode thereon, and the
glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
40:36 And when the cloud was taken up from
over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their
40:37 But if the cloud were not taken up,
then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up.
40:38 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.
