And of the blue and purple and scarlet stuff they made finely wrought garments, for ministering in the holy place; they made the holy garments for Aaron; as the LORD had commanded Moses. וּמִן־הַתְּכֵלֶת וְהָאַרְגָּמָן וְתֹולַעַת הַשָּׁנִי עָשׂוּ בִגְדֵי־שְׂרָד לְשָׁרֵת בַּקֹּדֶשׁ וַיַּעֲשׂוּ אֶת־בִּגְדֵי הַקֹּדֶשׁ אֲשֶׁר לְאַהֲרֹן כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת־מֹשֶׁה׃ ף P source Ex.35-Ex.40
Making the priestly garments. Ex.39.1-7 | Ex.28.1-14
And he made the ephod of gold, blue and purple and scarlet stuff, and fine twined linen. וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת־הָאֵפֹד זָהָב תְּכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתֹולַעַת שָׁנִי וְשֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר׃  
And gold leaf was hammered out and cut into threads to work into the blue and purple and the scarlet stuff, and into the fine twined linen, in skilled design. וַיְרַקְּעוּ אֶת־פַּחֵי הַזָּהָב וְקִץֵּץ פְּתִילִם לַעֲשֹׂות בְּתֹוךְ הַתְּכֵלֶת וּבְתֹוךְ הָאַרְגָּמָן וּבְתֹוךְ תֹּולַעַת הַשָּׁנִי וּבְתֹוךְ הַשֵּׁשׁ מַעֲשֵׂה חֹשֵׁב׃  
They made for the ephod shoulder-pieces, joined to it at its two edges. כְּתֵפֹת עָשׂוּ־לֹו חֹבְרֹת עַל־שְׁנֵי [כ= קִצְוֹותֹו] [ק= קְצֹותָיו] חֻבָּר׃  
And the skilfully woven band upon it, to gird it on, was of the same materials and workmanship, of gold, blue and purple and scarlet stuff, and fine twined linen; as the LORD had commanded Moses. וְחֵשֶׁב אֲפֻדָּתֹו אֲשֶׁר עָלָיו מִמֶּנּוּ הוּא כְּמַעֲשֵׂהוּ זָהָב תְּכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתֹולַעַת שָׁנִי וְשֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת־מֹשֶׁה׃  
The onyx stones were prepared, enclosed in settings of gold filigree and engraved like the engravings of a signet, according to the names of the sons of Israel. וַיַּעֲשׂוּ אֶת־אַבְנֵי הַשֹּׁהַם מֻסַבֹּת מִשְׁבְּצֹת זָהָב מְפֻתָּחֹת פִּתּוּחֵי חֹותָם עַל־שְׁמֹות בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל׃  
And he set them on the shoulder-pieces of the ephod, to be stones of remembrance for the sons of Israel; as the LORD had commanded Moses. וַיָּשֶׂם אֹתָם עַל כִּתְפֹת הָאֵפֹד אַבְנֵי זִכָּרֹון לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת־מֹשֶׁה׃ ף  
He made the breastpiece, in skilled work, like the work of the ephod, of gold, blue and purple and scarlet stuff, and fine twined linen. וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת־הַחֹשֶׁן מַעֲשֵׂה חֹשֵׁב כְּמַעֲשֵׂה אֵפֹד זָהָב תְּכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתֹולַעַת שָׁנִי וְשֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר׃ Making the breastplate. Ex.39.8-21 | Ex.28.15-30
It was square; the breastpiece was made double, a span its length and a span its breadth when doubled. רָבוּעַ הָיָה כָּפוּל עָשׂוּ אֶת־הַחֹשֶׁן זֶרֶת אָרְכֹּו וְזֶרֶת רָחְבֹּו כָּפוּל׃  
And they set in it four rows of stones. A row of sardius, topaz, and carbuncle was the first row; וַיְמַלְאוּ־בֹו אַרְבָּעָה טוּרֵי אָבֶן טוּר אֹדֶם פִּטְדָה וּבָרֶקֶת הַטּוּר הָאֶחָד׃  
and the second row, an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond; וְהַטּוּר הַשֵּׁנִי נֹפֶךְ סַפִּיר וְיָהֲלֹם׃  
and the third row, a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst; וְהַטּוּר הַשְּׁלִישִׁי לֶשֶׁם שְׁבֹו וְאַחְלָמָה׃  
and the fourth row, a beryl, an onyx, and a jasper; they were enclosed in settings of gold filigree. וְהַטּוּר הָרְבִיעִי תַּרְשִׁישׁ שֹׁהַם וְיָשְׁפֵה מוּסַבֹּת מִשְׁבְּצֹות זָהָב בְּמִלֻּאֹתָם׃  
There were twelve stones with their names according to the names of the sons of Israel; they were like signets, each engraved with its name, for the twelve tribes. וְהָאֲבָנִים עַל־שְׁמֹת בְּנֵי־יִשְׂרָאֵל הֵנָּה שְׁתֵּים עֶשְׂרֵה עַל־שְׁמֹתָם פִּתּוּחֵי חֹתָם אִישׁ עַל־שְׁמֹו לִשְׁנֵים עָשָׂר שָׁבֶט׃  
And they made on the breastpiece twisted chains like cords, of pure gold; וַיַּעֲשׂוּ עַל־הַחֹשֶׁן שַׁרְשְׁרֹת גַּבְלֻת מַעֲשֵׂה עֲבֹת זָהָב טָהֹור׃  
and they made two settings of gold filigree and two gold rings, and put the two rings on the two edges of the breastpiece; וַיַּעֲשׂוּ שְׁתֵּי מִשְׁבְּצֹת זָהָב וּשְׁתֵּי טַבְּעֹת זָהָב וַיִּתְּנוּ אֶת־שְׁתֵּי הַטַּבָּעֹת עַל־שְׁנֵי קְצֹות הַחֹשֶׁן׃  
and they put the two cords of gold in the two rings at the edges of the breastpiece. וַיִּתְּנוּ שְׁתֵּי הָעֲבֹתֹת הַזָּהָב עַל־שְׁתֵּי הַטַּבָּעֹת עַל־קְצֹות הַחֹשֶׁן׃  
Two ends of the two cords they had attached to the two settings of filigree; thus they attached it in front to the shoulder-pieces of the ephod. וְאֵת שְׁתֵּי קְצֹות שְׁתֵּי הָעֲבֹתֹת נָתְנוּ עַל־שְׁתֵּי הַמִּשְׁבְּצֹת וַיִּתְּנֻם עַל־כִּתְפֹת הָאֵפֹד אֶל־מוּל פָּנָיו׃  
Then they made two rings of gold, and put them at the two ends of the breastpiece, on its inside edge next to the ephod. וַיַּעֲשׂוּ שְׁתֵּי טַבְּעֹת זָהָב וַיָּשִׂימוּ עַל־שְׁנֵי קְצֹות הַחֹשֶׁן עַל־שְׂפָתֹו אֲשֶׁר אֶל־עֵבֶר הָאֵפֹד בָּיְתָה׃  
And they made two rings of gold, and attached them in front to the lower part of the two shoulder-pieces of the ephod, at its joining above the skilfully woven band of the ephod. וַיַּעֲשׂוּ שְׁתֵּי טַבְּעֹת זָהָב וַיִּתְּנֻם עַל־שְׁתֵּי כִתְפֹת הָאֵפֹד מִלְמַטָּה מִמּוּל פָּנָיו לְעֻמַּת מֶחְבַּרְתֹּו מִמַּעַל לְחֵשֶׁב הָאֵפֹד׃  
And they bound the breastpiece by its rings to the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, so that it should lie upon the skilfully woven band of the ephod, and that the breastpiece should not come loose from the ephod; as the LORD had commanded Moses. וַיִּרְכְּסוּ אֶת־הַחֹשֶׁן מִטַּבְּעֹתָיו אֶל־טַבְּעֹת הָאֵפֹד בִּפְתִיל תְּכֵלֶת לִהְיֹת עַל־חֵשֶׁב הָאֵפֹד וְלֹא־יִזַּח הַחֹשֶׁן מֵעַל הָאֵפֹד כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת־מֹשֶׁה׃  
He also made the robe of the ephod woven all of blue; וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת־מְעִיל הָאֵפֹד מַעֲשֵׂה אֹרֵג כְּלִיל תְּכֵלֶת׃ Making the other priestly garments. Ex.39.22-31 | Ex.28.31-43
and the opening of the robe in it was like the opening in a garment, with a binding around the opening, that it might not be torn. וּפִי־הַמְּעִיל בְּתֹוכֹו כְּפִי תַחְרָא שָׂפָה לְפִיו סָבִיב לֹא יִקָּרֵעַ׃  
On the skirts of the robe they made pomegranates of blue and purple and scarlet stuff and fine twined linen. וַיַּעֲשׂוּ עַל־שׁוּלֵי הַמְּעִיל רִמֹּונֵי תְּכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתֹולַעַת שָׁנִי מָשְׁזָר׃  
They also made bells of pure gold, and put the bells between the pomegranates upon the skirts of the robe round about, between the pomegranates; וַיַּעֲשׂוּ פַעֲמֹנֵי זָהָב טָהֹור וַיִּתְּנוּ אֶת־הַפַּעֲמֹנִים בְּתֹוךְ הָרִמֹּנִים עַל־שׁוּלֵי הַמְּעִיל סָבִיב בְּתֹוךְ הָרִמֹּנִים׃  
a bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate round about upon the skirts of the robe for ministering; as the LORD had commanded Moses. פַּעֲמֹן וְרִמֹּן פַּעֲמֹן וְרִמֹּן עַל־שׁוּלֵי הַמְּעִיל סָבִיב לְשָׁרֵת כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת־מֹשֶׁה׃ ס  
They also made the coats, woven of fine linen, for Aaron and his sons, וַיַּעֲשׂוּ אֶת־הַכָּתְנֹת שֵׁשׁ מַעֲשֵׂה אֹרֵג לְאַהֲרֹן וּלְבָנָיו׃  
and the turban of fine linen, and the caps of fine linen, and the linen breeches of fine twined linen, וְאֵת הַמִּצְנֶפֶת שֵׁשׁ וְאֶת־פַּאֲרֵי הַמִּגְבָּעֹת שֵׁשׁ וְאֶת־מִכְנְסֵי הַבָּד שֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר׃  
and the girdle of fine twined linen and of blue and purple and scarlet stuff, embroidered with needlework; as the LORD had commanded Moses. וְאֶת־הָאַבְנֵט שֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר וּתְכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתֹולַעַת שָׁנִי מַעֲשֵׂה רֹקֵם כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת־מֹשֶׁה׃ ס  
And they made the plate of the holy crown of pure gold, and wrote upon it an inscription, like the engraving of a signet, "Holy to the LORD." וַיַּעֲשׂוּ אֶת־צִיץ נֵזֶר־הַקֹּדֶשׁ זָהָב טָהֹור וַיִּכְתְּבוּ עָלָיו מִכְתַּב פִּתּוּחֵי חֹותָם קֹדֶשׁ לַיהוָה׃  
And they tied to it a lace of blue, to fasten it on the turban above; as the LORD had commanded Moses. וַיִּתְּנוּ עָלָיו פְּתִיל תְּכֵלֶת לָתֵת עַל־הַמִּצְנֶפֶת מִלְמָעְלָה כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת־מֹשֶׁה׃ ס  
Thus all the work of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting was finished; and the people of Israel had done according to all that the LORD had commanded Moses; so had they done. וַתֵּכֶל כָּל־עֲבֹדַת מִשְׁכַּן אֹהֶל מֹועֵד וַיַּעֲשׂוּ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל כְּכֹל אֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת־מֹשֶׁה כֵּן עָשׂוּ׃ ף The completion of the work. Ex.39.32-43 | Ex.35.10-19
And they brought the tabernacle to Moses, the tent and all its utensils, its hooks, its frames, its bars, its pillars, and its bases; וַיָּבִיאוּ אֶת־הַמִּשְׁכָּן אֶל־מֹשֶׁה אֶת־הָאֹהֶל וְאֶת־כָּל־כֵּלָיו קְרָסָיו קְרָשָׁיו [כ= בְּרִיחֹו] [ק= בְּרִיחָיו] וְעַמֻּדָיו וַאֲדָנָיו׃  
the covering of tanned rams' skins and goatskins, and the veil of the screen; וְאֶת־מִכְסֵה עֹורֹת הָאֵילִם הַמְאָדָּמִים וְאֶת־מִכְסֵה עֹרֹת הַתְּחָשִׁים וְאֵת פָּרֹכֶת הַמָּסָךְ׃

the table with all its utensils, and the bread of the Presence; אֶת־הַשֻּׁלְחָן אֶת־כָּל־כֵּלָיו וְאֵת לֶחֶם הַפָּנִים׃  
the lampstand of pure gold and its lamps with the lamps set and all its utensils, and the oil for the light; אֶת־הַמְּנֹרָה הַטְּהֹרָה אֶת־נֵרֹתֶיהָ נֵרֹת הַמַּעֲרָכָה וְאֶת־כָּל־כֵּלֶיהָ וְאֵת שֶׁמֶן הַמָּאֹור׃  
the golden altar, the anointing oil and the fragrant incense, and the screen for the door of the tent; וְאֵת מִזְבַּח הַזָּהָב וְאֵת שֶׁמֶן הַמִּשְׁחָה וְאֵת קְטֹרֶת הַסַּמִּים וְאֵת מָסַךְ פֶּתַח הָאֹהֶל׃  
the bronze altar, and its grating of bronze, its poles, and all its utensils; the laver and its base; אֵת מִזְבַּח הַנְּחֹשֶׁת וְאֶת־מִכְבַּר הַנְּחֹשֶׁת אֲשֶׁר־לֹו אֶת־בַּדָּיו וְאֶת־כָּל־כֵּלָיו אֶת־הַכִּיֹּר וְאֶת־כַּנֹּו׃  
the hangings of the court, its pillars, and its bases, and the screen for the gate of the court, its cords, and its pegs; and all the utensils for the service of the tabernacle, for the tent of meeting; אֵת קַלְעֵי הֶחָצֵר אֶת־עַמֻּדֶיהָ וְאֶת־אֲדָנֶיהָ וְאֶת־הַמָּסָךְ לְשַׁעַר הֶחָצֵר אֶת־מֵיתָרָיו וִיתֵדֹתֶיהָ וְאֵת כָּל־כְּלֵי עֲבֹדַת הַמִּשְׁכָּן לְאֹהֶל מֹועֵד׃  
the finely worked garments for ministering in the holy place, the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons to serve as priests. אֶת־בִּגְדֵי הַשְּׂרָד לְשָׁרֵת בַּקֹּדֶשׁ אֶת־בִּגְדֵי הַקֹּדֶשׁ לְאַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֵן וְאֶת־בִּגְדֵי בָנָיו לְכַהֵן׃  
According to all that the LORD had commanded Moses, so the people of Israel had done all the work. כְּכֹל אֲשֶׁר־צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת־מֹשֶׁה כֵּן עָשׂוּ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל אֵת כָּל־הָעֲבֹדָה׃  
And Moses saw all the work, and behold, they had done it; as the LORD had commanded, so had they done it. And Moses blessed them. וַיַּרְא מֹשֶׁה אֶת־כָּל־הַמְּלָאכָה וְהִנֵּה עָשׂוּ אֹתָהּ כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה כֵּן עָשׂוּ וַיְבָרֶךְ אֹתָם מֹשֶׁה׃ ף  
The LORD said to Moses, וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה אֶל־מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר׃ P source Ex.35-Ex.40
Dedication of the Tabernacle. Ex.40.1-33
"On the first day of the first month you shall erect the tabernacle of the tent of meeting. בְּיֹום־הַחֹדֶשׁ הָרִאשֹׁון בְּאֶחָד לַחֹדֶשׁ תָּקִים אֶת־מִשְׁכַּן אֹהֶל מֹועֵד׃  
And you shall put in it the ark of the testimony, and you shall screen the ark with the veil. וְשַׂמְתָּ שָׁם אֵת אֲרֹון הָעֵדוּת וְסַכֹּתָ עַל־הָאָרֹן אֶת־הַפָּרֹכֶת׃  
And you shall bring in the table, and set its arrangements in order; and you shall bring in the lampstand, and set up its lamps. וְהֵבֵאתָ אֶת־הַשֻּׁלְחָן וְעָרַכְתָּ אֶת־עֶרְכֹּו וְהֵבֵאתָ אֶת־הַמְּנֹרָה וְהַעֲלֵיתָ אֶת־נֵרֹתֶיהָ׃  
And you shall put the golden altar for incense before the ark of the testimony, and set up the screen for the door of the tabernacle. וְנָתַתָּה אֶת־מִזְבַּח הַזָּהָב לִקְטֹרֶת לִפְנֵי אֲרֹון הָעֵדֻת וְשַׂמְתָּ אֶת־מָסַךְ הַפֶּתַח לַמִּשְׁכָּן׃  
You shall set the altar of burnt offering before the door of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting, וְנָתַתָּה אֵת מִזְבַּח הָעֹלָה לִפְנֵי פֶּתַח מִשְׁכַּן אֹהֶל־מֹועֵד׃  
and place the laver between the tent of meeting and the altar, and put water in it. וְנָתַתָּ אֶת־הַכִּיֹּר בֵּין־אֹהֶל מֹועֵד וּבֵין הַמִּזְבֵּחַ וְנָתַתָּ שָׁם מָיִם׃  
And you shall set up the court round about, and hang up the screen for the gate of the court. וְשַׂמְתָּ אֶת־הֶחָצֵר סָבִיב וְנָתַתָּ אֶת־מָסַךְ שַׁעַר הֶחָצֵר׃  
Then you shall take the anointing oil, and anoint the tabernacle and all that is in it, and consecrate it and all its furniture; and it shall become holy. וְלָקַחְתָּ אֶת־שֶׁמֶן הַמִּשְׁחָה וּמָשַׁחְתָּ אֶת־הַמִּשְׁכָּן וְאֶת־כָּל־אֲשֶׁר־בֹּו וְקִדַּשְׁתָּ אֹתֹו וְאֶת־כָּל־כֵּלָיו וְהָיָה קֹדֶשׁ׃  
You shall also anoint the altar of burnt offering and all its utensils, and consecrate the altar; and the altar shall be most holy. וּמָשַׁחְתָּ אֶת־מִזְבַּח הָעֹלָה וְאֶת־כָּל־כֵּלָיו וְקִדַּשְׁתָּ אֶת־הַמִּזְבֵּחַ וְהָיָה הַמִּזְבֵּחַ קֹדֶשׁ קָדָשִׁים׃  
You shall also anoint the laver and its base, and consecrate it. וּמָשַׁחְתָּ אֶת־הַכִּיֹּר וְאֶת־כַּנֹּו וְקִדַּשְׁתָּ אֹתֹו׃  
Then you shall bring Aaron and his sons to the door of the tent of meeting, and shall wash them with water, וְהִקְרַבְתָּ אֶת־אַהֲרֹן וְאֶת־בָּנָיו אֶל־פֶּתַח אֹהֶל מֹועֵד וְרָחַצְתָּ אֹתָם בַּמָּיִם׃  
and put upon Aaron the holy garments, and you shall anoint him and consecrate him, that he may serve me as priest. וְהִלְבַּשְׁתָּ אֶת־אַהֲרֹן אֵת בִּגְדֵי הַקֹּדֶשׁ וּמָשַׁחְתָּ אֹתֹו וְקִדַּשְׁתָּ אֹתֹו וְכִהֵן לִי׃  
You shall bring his sons also and put coats on them, וְאֶת־בָּנָיו תַּקְרִיב וְהִלְבַּשְׁתָּ אֹתָם כֻּתֳּנֹת׃  
and anoint them, as you anointed their father, that they may serve me as priests: and their anointing shall admit them to a perpetual priesthood throughout their generations." וּמָשַׁחְתָּ אֹתָם כַּאֲשֶׁר מָשַׁחְתָּ אֶת־אֲבִיהֶם וְכִהֲנוּ לִי וְהָיְתָה לִהְיֹת לָהֶם מָשְׁחָתָם לִכְהֻנַּת עֹולָם לְדֹרֹתָם׃  
Thus did Moses; according to all that the LORD commanded him, so he did. וַיַּעַשׂ מֹשֶׁה כְּכֹל אֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֹתֹו כֵּן עָשָׂה׃ ס  
And in the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, the tabernacle was erected. וַיְהִי בַּחֹדֶשׁ הָרִאשֹׁון בַּשָּׁנָה הַשֵּׁנִית בְּאֶחָד לַחֹדֶשׁ הוּקַם הַמִּשְׁכָּן׃  
Moses erected the tabernacle; he laid its bases, and set up its frames, and put in its poles, and raised up its pillars; וַיָּקֶם מֹשֶׁה אֶת־הַמִּשְׁכָּן וַיִּתֵּן אֶת־אֲדָנָיו וַיָּשֶׂם אֶת־קְרָשָׁיו וַיִּתֵּן אֶת־בְּרִיחָיו וַיָּקֶם אֶת־עַמּוּדָיו׃  
and he spread the tent over the tabernacle, and put the covering of the tent over it, as the LORD had commanded Moses. וַיִּפְרֹשׂ אֶת־הָאֹהֶל עַל־הַמִּשְׁכָּן וַיָּשֶׂם אֶת־מִכְסֵה הָאֹהֶל עָלָיו מִלְמָעְלָה כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת־מֹשֶׁה׃ ס  
And 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; וַיִּקַּח וַיִּתֵּן אֶת־הָעֵדֻת אֶל־הָאָרֹן וַיָּשֶׂם אֶת־הַבַּדִּים עַל־הָאָרֹן וַיִּתֵּן אֶת־הַכַּפֹּרֶת עַל־הָאָרֹן מִלְמָעְלָה׃  
and 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. וַיָּבֵא אֶת־הָאָרֹן אֶל־הַמִּשְׁכָּן וַיָּשֶׂם אֵת פָּרֹכֶת הַמָּסָךְ וַיָּסֶךְ עַל אֲרֹון הָעֵדוּת כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת־מֹשֶׁה׃ ס  
And he put the table in the tent of meeting, on the north side of the tabernacle, outside the veil, וַיִּתֵּן אֶת־הַשֻּׁלְחָן בְּאֹהֶל מֹועֵד עַל יֶרֶךְ הַמִּשְׁכָּן צָפֹנָה מִחוּץ לַפָּרֹכֶת׃  
and set the bread in order on it before the LORD; as the LORD had commanded Moses. וַיַּעֲרֹךְ עָלָיו עֵרֶךְ לֶחֶם לִפְנֵי יְהוָה כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת־מֹשֶׁה׃ ס  
And he put the lampstand in the tent of meeting, opposite the table on the south side of the tabernacle, וַיָּשֶׂם אֶת־הַמְּנֹרָה בְּאֹהֶל מֹועֵד נֹכַח הַשֻּׁלְחָן עַל יֶרֶךְ הַמִּשְׁכָּן נֶגְבָּה׃  
and set up the lamps before the LORD; as the LORD had commanded Moses. וַיַּעַל הַנֵּרֹת לִפְנֵי יְהוָה כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת־מֹשֶׁה׃ ס  
And he put the golden altar in the tent of meeting before the veil, וַיָּשֶׂם אֶת־מִזְבַּח הַזָּהָב בְּאֹהֶל מֹועֵד לִפְנֵי הַפָּרֹכֶת׃  
and burnt fragrant incense upon it; as the LORD had commanded Moses. וַיַּקְטֵר עָלָיו קְטֹרֶת סַמִּים כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת־מֹשֶׁה׃ ף  
And he put in place the screen for the door of the tabernacle. וַיָּשֶׂם אֶת־מָסַךְ הַפֶּתַח לַמִּשְׁכָּן׃  
And he set the altar of burnt offering at the door of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting, and offered upon it the burnt offering and the cereal offering; as the LORD had commanded Moses. וְאֵת מִזְבַּח הָעֹלָה שָׂם פֶּתַח מִשְׁכַּן אֹהֶל־מֹועֵד וַיַּעַל עָלָיו אֶת־הָעֹלָה וְאֶת־הַמִּנְחָה כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת־מֹשֶׁה׃ ס  
And he set the laver between the tent of meeting and the altar, and put water in it for washing, וַיָּשֶׂם אֶת־הַכִּיֹּר בֵּין־אֹהֶל מֹועֵד וּבֵין הַמִּזְבֵּחַ וַיִּתֵּן שָׁמָּה מַיִם לְרָחְצָה׃  
with which Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their feet; וְרָחֲצוּ מִמֶּנּוּ מֹשֶׁה וְאַהֲרֹן וּבָנָיו אֶת־יְדֵיהֶם וְאֶת־רַגְלֵיהֶם׃  
when they went into the tent of meeting, and when they approached the altar, they washed; as the LORD commanded Moses. בְּבֹאָם אֶל־אֹהֶל מֹועֵד וּבְקָרְבָתָם אֶל־הַמִּזְבֵּחַ יִרְחָצוּ כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת־מֹשֶׁה׃ ס  
And he erected the court round the tabernacle and the altar, and set up the screen of the gate of the court. So Moses finished the work. וַיָּקֶם אֶת־הֶחָצֵר סָבִיב לַמִּשְׁכָּן וְלַמִּזְבֵּחַ וַיִּתֵּן אֶת־מָסַךְ שַׁעַר הֶחָצֵר וַיְכַל מֹשֶׁה אֶת־הַמְּלָאכָה׃ ף  
Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. וַיְכַס הֶעָןָן אֶת־אֹהֶל מֹועֵד וּכְבֹוד יְהוָה מָלֵא אֶת־הַמִּשְׁכָּן׃ The Shekinah. Ex.40.34-38 | Nu.9.15-23
And Moses was not able to enter the tent of meeting, because the cloud abode upon it, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. וְלֹא־יָכֹל מֹשֶׁה לָבֹוא אֶל־אֹהֶל מֹועֵד כִּי־שָׁכַן עָלָיו הֶעָןָן וּכְבֹוד יְהוָה מָלֵא אֶת־הַמִּשְׁכָּן׃  
Throughout all their journeys, whenever the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the people of Israel would go onward; וּבְהֵעָלֹות הֶעָןָן מֵעַל הַמִּשְׁכָּן יִסְעוּ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּכֹל מַסְעֵיהֶם׃  
but if the cloud was not taken up, then they did not go onward till the day that it was taken up. וְאִם־לֹא יֵעָלֶה הֶעָןָן וְלֹא יִסְעוּ עַד־יֹום הֵעָלֹתֹו׃  
For throughout all their journeys the cloud of the LORD was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was in it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel. כִּי עֲןַן יְהוָה עַל־הַמִּשְׁכָּן יֹוםָם וְאֵשׁ תִּהְיֶה לַיְלָה בֹּו לְעֵינֵי כָל־בֵּית־יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּכָל־מַסְעֵיהֶם׃
