Moshe erects the Mishkan
Chp. 40 verses 1 - 38: Hashem orders Moshe to erect the Mishkan, and he does so by himself miraculously. He places the Ark, the Table, the Menorah, the Golden Alter, and the curtain to the doorway. He places the Copper Alter, the Washstand and then he sets up the courtyard. The cloud then covers the Tabernacle and the glory of Hashem filled it. The cloud would tell them if they should camp or move. The cloud of Hashem was over the Tabernacle during the day and a pillar of fire at night, all before the eyes of the house of Israel throughout their journeys.
