The Lord commanded Bezalel, Oholiab, and Aaron’s son, Ithamar to build the tabernacle and all that adorned it.
They created the clothes worn by those who officiated within it, as well as a breastplate for Aaron, the high priest, which contained the names of the 12 sons of Israel.
The also made headdresses for Aaron and his sons, and a head-plate of solid gold.
Upon completing the Tabernacle, they brought it to Moses, who blessed them.
God told Moses that on the first day of the month he should set up and anoint the Tabernacle and all that was within it.
The Lord also told him to bring Aaron and his sons to the front of the tent, where he was to wash and anoint them too.
When Moses did this, a cloud covered the Tent, indicating that the Lord’s presence was in it.
Because of the Lord’s presence, Moses was no longer able to enter the Tabernacle.
The Israelites were only able to leave on journeys when the cloud was lifted, and did not leave if the cloud did not lift.
By day, the cloud of the lord rested above the tent, and by night fire would appear.
