February 15th, Exodus 39-40: Priestly garments and setting up the Tabernacle

Exodus 39 goes into great length about the priestly garments for Aaron and his sons.

Exodus 40 records the LORD’s specific instructions to Moses on how to set up the tabernacle, the Tent of Meeting, the ark of Testimony for proper worship. Moses follows the Lord’s instructions, setting up the tabernacle on the first day of the first month of the second year, i.e. the second anniversary of Israel’s departure from Egypt.

Exodus concludes in the verses 36-38 of Chapter 40:
36 In all the travels of the Israelites, whenever the cloud lifted from above the tabernacle, they would set out; 37 but if the cloud did not lift, they did not set out—until the day it lifted. 38 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.
