In the first month of the second year, on the first of the month, the Tabernacle was set up. Moses set up the Tabernacle, placing its sockets, setting up its planks, inserting its bars, and erecting its posts. He spread the tent over the Tabernacle, placing the covering of the tent on top of it--just as the Lord had commanded Moses.
He took the Pact and placed it in the ark; he fixed the poles to the ark, placed the cover on top of the ark, and brought the ark inside the Tabernacle. Then he put up the curtain for screening, and screened off the Ark of the Pact--just as the Lord had commanded Moses.
He placed the table in the Tent of Meeting, outside the curtain, on the north side of the Tabernacle. Upon it he laid out the setting of bread before the Lord--as the Lord had commanded Moses. He placed the lampstand in the Tent of Meeting opposite the table, on the south side of the Tabernacle. And he lit the lamps before the Lord--as the Lord had commanded Moses. He placed the altar of gold in the Tent of Meeting, before the curtain. On it he burned aromatic incense--as the Lord had commanded Moses.
