Thus all the work of the tabernacle was finished. 
Moses looked over 
all the work,
    and indeed they had done it;
    just as the Lord had 
commanded. 
And Moses blessed them.

In the first month of the second year,
    Moses raised up the tabernacle.  
He fastened its 
sockets,
    set up its boards,
        put in its bars,
            and raised up its pillars.

He took the Testimony and put it into the ark
    inserted the poles through the rings of the ark, 
    and put the mercy seat on top of the ark.  

He brought the ark into the tabernacle,
    hung up the veil of the covering,
    and partitioned off the ark of the testimony,
    as the 
Lord had commanded.
