SynopsisNow that the work on the Tabernacle is finished, it’s time to set it up. The LORD comes to Moses, and instructs him on everything he is to set up: the Tent of Meeting, the Ark, the table and lampstand, the Altar of Incense, the Altar of Burnt Offering, the basin, and the basin.
Then the cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. Moses could not enter the Tent of Meeting because the cloud had settled upon it, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
In all the travels of the Israelites, whenever the cloud lifted from above the tabernacle, they would set out; but if the cloud did not lift, they did not set out—until the day it lifted. So the cloud of the LORD was over the tabernacle by day, and fire was in the cloud by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel during all their travels.
