And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 20n the first day of the first month, at the new moon, thou shalt set up the tabernacle of witness, 3and thou shalt place in it the ark of the testimony, and shalt cover the ark with the veil, 4and thou shall bring in the table and shalt set forth 1 that which is to be set forth on it; and thou shalt bring in the candlestick and place its lamps on it. 5And thou shalt place the golden altar, to burn incense before the ark; and thou shalt put a covering of a veil on the door of the tabernacle of witness. 6 And thou shalt put the altar of burnt-offerings by the doors of the tabernacle of witness and thou shalt set up the tabernacle round about, and thou shalt hallow all, that belongs to it round about, 9And thou shalt take the anointing oil, and shalt anoint the tabernacle, and all things in it; and shalt sanctify it, and all its furniture, and it shall be holy. 10And thou shalt anoint the altar of burnt-offerings, and all its furniture; and thou shalt hallow the altar, and the altar shall be most holy. 12And thou shalt bring Aaron and his sons to the doors of the tabernacle of witness, and thou shalt wash them with water. 13And thou shalt put on Aaron the holy garments and thou shalt anoint him and thou shalt sanctify him, and he shall minister to me as priest. 14And thou shalt bring up his sons, and shalt put garments on them. 15And thou shalt anoint them as thou didst anoint their father, and they shall minister to me as priests; and it shall be that they shall have an 2 everlasting anointing of priesthood, throughout their


the court, and the rings for drawing out the veil above of brass. 20He cast the silver chapiters of the tabernacle, and the brazen chapiters of the door of the tabernacle, and the gate of the court; and he made silver hooks for the posts, he overlaid them with silver on the posts. 21He made the pins of the tabernacle and the pins of the court of brass. 22He made the brazen altar of the brazen censers, which belonged to the men engaged in sedition with the gathering of Core. 23He made all the vessels of the altar and its 3 grate, and its base, and its bowls, and the brazen flesh-hooks. 24He made an appendage for the altar of network under the grate, beneath it as far as the middle of it; and he fastened to it four brazen rings on the four parts of the appendage of the altar, wide enough for the bars, so as to bear the altar with them: 25He made the holy anointing oil and the composition of the incense, the pure work of the perfumer. 26He made the brazen laver and the brazen base of it of the mirrors of the women that fasted, who fasted by the doors of the tabernacle of witness, in the day in which he set it up.

27 And he made the laver, that 4 at it Moses and Aaron and his sons might wash their hands and their feet: when they went into the tabernacle of witness, or whensoever they should advance to the altar to do service, they washed 5 at it, as the Lord commanded Moses.
