||indues sanctis vestibus ut ministrent mihi et unctio eorum in sacerdotium proficiat sempiternum

||fecitque Moses omnia quae praeceperat Dominus
And Moses did all that the Lord had commanded.
||igitur mense primo anni secundi in prima die mensis conlocatum est tabernaculum
So in the first month of the second year, the first day of the month, the tabernacle was set up.
||erexitque illud Moses et posuit tabulas ac bases et vectes statuitque columnas

||cumque intulisset arcam in tabernaculum adpendit ante eam velum ut expleret Domini iussionem
And when he had brought the ark into the tabernacle, he drew the veil before it to fulfil the command ment of the Lord.
||posuit et mensam in tabernaculo testimonii ad plagam septentrionalem extra velum
And he set the table in the tabernacle of the testimony, at the north side, without the veil,
||ordinatis coram propositionis panibus sicut praeceperat Dominus Mosi
Setting there in order the loaves of proposition, as the Lord had commanded Moses.
||posuit et candelabrum in tabernaculum testimonii e regione mensae in parte australi

||laveruntque Moses et Aaron ac filii eius manus suas et pedes
And Moses and Aaron, and his sons, washed their hands and feet,
||cum ingrederentur tectum foederis et accederent ad altare sicut praeceperat Dominus
When they went into the tabernacle of the covenant, and went to the altar, as the Lord had commanded Moses.
||erexit et atrium per gyrum tabernaculi et altaris ducto in introitu eius tentorio postquam cuncta perfecta sunt
He set up also the court round about the tabernacle and the altar, drawing the hanging in the entry thereof. After all things were perfected,
||operuit nubes tabernaculum testimonii et gloria Domini implevit illud
The cloud covered the tabernacle of the testimony, and the glory of the Lord filled it.
||nec poterat Moses ingredi tectum foederis nube operiente omnia et maiestate Domini coruscante quia cuncta nubes operuerat
Neither could Moses go into the tabernacle of the covenant, the cloud covering all things, and the majesty of the Lord shining, for the cloud had covered all.
||si quando nubes tabernaculum deserebat proficiscebantur filii Israhel per turmas suas
If at any time the cloud removed from the tabernacle, the children of Israel went forward by their troops:
||si pendebat desuper manebant in eodem loco
If it hung over, they remained in the same place.
||nubes quippe Domini incubabat per diem tabernaculo et ignis in nocte videntibus populis Israhel per cunctas mansiones suas.
For the cloud of the Lord hung over the tabernacle by day, and a fire by night, in the sight of all the children of Israel throughout all their mansions.
