The Tabernacle is commanded to be reared,
Exodus 40:1 And ye LORDE spake vnto Moses, & sayde: Exodus 40:2 In the fyrst daye of the first moneth shalt thou set vp ye Habitacio of ye Tabernacle of wytnesse, Exodus 40:3 and shal put the Arke of wytnes therin, and hange the vayle before ye Arke. Exodus 40:4 And thou shalt bringe in the table, and garnish it, and brynge in the cadilsticke, and put the lampes theron. Exodus 40:5 And ye golde altare of incense shalt thou set before ye Arke of wytnesse, & hange vp the hanginge in the dore of the Habitacio. Exodus 40:6 But the altare of burntofferinges shalt thou set before the dore of the Habitacion of the Tabernacle of wytnesse: Exodus 40:7 & the lauer betwixte the Tabernacle of wytnesse and the altare, and put water therin, Exodus 40:8 & set the courte rounde aboute, and hange vp the hanginge in the courte gate.
Exodus 40:9 And thou shalt take the anoyntynge oyle, and anoynte the Habitacion and all that is there in, and shalt consecrate it, and all ye apparell therof, that it maye be holy. Exodus 40:10 And thou shalt anoynte the altare of burntofferynges and all his vessels, and consecrate it, that it maye be most holy. Exodus 40:11 The lauer also & his fote shalt thou anoynte & consecrate. Exodus 40:12 And thou shalt brynge Aaron & his sonnes vnto the dore of the Tabernacle of wytnesse, and wash them with water,
Aaron and his sons to be sanctified.
Exodus 40:13 & put the holy vestimentes vpon Aaron, and anoynte him, and consecrate him, that he maye be my prest. Exodus 40:14 And thou shalt brynge his sonnes also, and put the albes vpon them, Exodus 40:15 and anoynte them, as thou hast anoynted their father, yt they maye be my prestes. And this anoyntinge shall they haue for an euerlastinge presthode amonge their posterities.
Moses performeth all things accordingly.
Exodus 40:16 And Moses dyd all as the LORDE comaunded him.
Exodus 40:17 Thus was the Tabernacle set vp in the seconde yeare vpon the first daye of the first moneth. Exodus 40:18 And whan Moses reared it vp, he fastened ye sokettes and the bordes, and barres, and set vp the pilers, Exodus 40:19 and spred out the tent ouer the Habitacion, and put the couerynge of the tent aboue an hye, as the LORDE commaunded him.
Exodus 40:20 And he toke the wytnesse, and layed it in the Arke, and put ye staues in the Arke, and set the Mercyseate aboue vpon the Arke, Exodus 40:21 and brought the Arke in to the Habitacion, and hanged the vayle before the Arke of wytnesse, as the LORDE commaunded him.
Exodus 40:22 And he set the table in the Tabernacle of wytnesse, in the corner of the Habitacion vpon the north syde without the vayle, Exodus 40:23 and prepared bred theron before ye LORDE as the LORDE commaunded him.
Exodus 40:24 And he set in the candilsticke also, euen ouer agaynst the table, in the corner of the Habitacion vpon the south syde, Exodus 40:25 and put the lampes theron before ye LORDE, as the LORDE commaunded him.
Exodus 40:26 And the golden altare set he in also before the vayle, Exodus 40:27 and brent swete incense theron, as the LORDE commaunded him.
Exodus 40:28 And hanged vp the hangynge in the Tabernacle dore. Exodus 40:29 As for the altare of burntofferynges, he set it before the dore of the Habitacion of ye Tabernacle of wytnesse, and offred burntofferynges and meateofferynges theron, as the LORDE commaunded him.
Exodus 40:30 And the Lauer set he betwixte the Tabernacle of wytnesse and ye altare, and put water therin to wash withall. Exodus 40:31 And Moses, Aaron and his sonnes washed their hades and fete ther at: Exodus 40:32 for they ought to wash the, whan they wente in to the Tabernacle of wytnesse, or whan they wente vnto the altare, as the LORDE commaunded him. Exodus 40:33 And he set vp the courte rounde aboute the Habitacion and the altare, and hanged vp ye hanginge in ye courte gate. Thus Moses fynished the whole worke.
A cloud covereth the Tabernacle.
Exodus 40:34 Then a cloude couered ye Tabernacle of wytnesse, and the glory of the LORDE fylled the Habitacion. Exodus 40:35 And Moses coulde not go in to the Tabernacle of wytnesse, whyle the cloude abode theron, and the glory of ye LORDE fylled the Habitacion. Exodus 40:36 And whan the cloude remoued from the Habitacion, then wente the children of Israel forth, as oft as they toke their iourney. Exodus 40:37 But yf the cloude remoued not, then toke not they their iourney, tyll the daie that it remoued: Exodus 40:38 for in the daye tyme was the cloude of the LORDE vpon the Habitacion, & in the night season was fyre therin, in ye sight of all ye house of Israel, in all their iourneis.
