Christ in the Tabernacle

36:1 Then wrought Bezaleel (Castor) and Aholiab (Pollux), and every wise hearted man (Perseus), in whom the (Shekinah) Lord (red radius) put wisdom and understanding to know how to work all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that the (Shekinah) Lord had commanded.

2 And Moses (Ophiuchus) (red radius) called Bezaleel (Castor) and Aholiab (Pollux), and every wise hearted man (Perseus), in whose heart the (Shekinah) Lord had put wisdom, even every one whose (solar) heart stirred him up to come unto the work to do it:

3 And they received of (Ophiuchus) Moses all the offering, which the (Gemini) children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the sanctuary, to make it withal. And they brought yet unto him free offerings every (sun on red radius horizon) morning.

4 And all the wise (Gemini) men, that wrought all the work of the sanctuary, (red radius) came every man from his work which they made;

5 And they (red radius) spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, saying, The (Gemini) people bring much more than enough for the service of the work, which the (Shekinah) Lord commanded to make.

6 And (Ophiuchus) Moses gave (red radius) commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, Let neither man nor woman make any more work for the offering of the sanctuary. So the (Gemini) people were restrained from bringing.

7 For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it, and too much.

8 And every wise hearted (Perseus, Castor, Pollux) man among them that wrought the work of the (red radius) tabernacle made ten curtains of fine twined (white lunar) linen, and (lunar) blue, and purple, and (red radius) scarlet: with (lunar) (red radius) cherubims of cunning work made he them.

9 The length of one curtain was twenty and eight cubits, and the breadth of one curtain four cubits: the curtains were all of one size.

10 And he coupled the five curtains one unto another: and the other five curtains he coupled one unto another.

11 And he made loops of (lunar) blue on the edge of one curtain from the selvedge in the coupling: likewise he made in the uttermost side of another curtain, in the coupling of the second.

12 Fifty loops made he in one curtain, and fifty loops made he in the edge of the curtain which was in the coupling of the second: the loops held one curtain to another.

13 And he made fifty taches of (solar) gold, and coupled the curtains one unto another with the taches: so it became one (red radius) tabernacle.

14 And he made curtains of (white lunar) goats' hair for the (red radius) tent over the tabernacle: eleven curtains he made them.

15 The length of one curtain was thirty cubits, and four cubits was the breadth of one curtain: the eleven curtains were of one size.

16 And he coupled five curtains by themselves, and six curtains by themselves.

17 And he made fifty loops upon the uttermost edge of the curtain in the coupling, and fifty loops made he upon the edge of the curtain which coupleth the second.

18 And he made fifty taches of (solar) brass to couple the tent together, that it might be one.

19 And he made a covering for the tent of (Aries) rams' skins dyed (radius) red, and a covering of (blue lunar) badgers' skins above that.

20 And he made (red radius) boards for the tabernacle of shittim wood, standing up.

21 The length of a board was ten cubits, and the breadth of a board one cubit and a half.

22 One board had two (lunar) (red radius) tenons, equally distant one from another: thus did he make for all the boards of the tabernacle.

23 And he made boards for the tabernacle; twenty boards for the south side southward:

24 And forty sockets of (lunar) silver he made under the twenty boards; two (lunar) sockets under one board for his two (red radius) tenons, and two (lunar) sockets under another board for his two (red radius) tenons.

25 And for the other side of the (red radius) tabernacle, which is toward the north corner, he made twenty boards,

26 And their forty sockets of (lunar) silver; two sockets under one board, and two sockets under another board.

27 And for the sides of the (red radius) tabernacle westward he made six boards.

28 And two (red radius) (lunar) boards made he for the corners of the tabernacle in the two sides.

29 And they were coupled beneath, and coupled together at the head thereof, to one (lunar) ring (each): thus he did to both of them in both the corners.

30 And there were eight boards; and their sockets were sixteen sockets of silver, under every board two sockets.

31 And he made (red radius) bars of shittim (Acacia) wood; five for the boards of the one side of the (red radius) tabernacle,

32 And five (red radius) bars for the boards of the other side of the tabernacle, and five (red radius) bars for the boards of the tabernacle for the sides westward.

33 And he made the middle (red radius) bar to shoot through the boards from the one end to the other.

34 And he overlaid the boards with (solar) gold, and made their (lunar) rings of (solar) gold to be places for the (red radius) bars, and overlaid the bars with gold.

35 And he made a vail of (lunar) blue, and purple, and (red radius) scarlet, and fine twined (white lunar) linen: with (lunar) (red radius) cherubims made he it of cunning work.

36 And he made thereunto four (red radius) pillars of shittim (Acacia) wood, and overlaid them with (solar) gold: their hooks were of gold; and he cast for them four sockets of (lunar) silver.

37 And he made an hanging for the tabernacle door of (lunar) blue, and purple, and (red radius) scarlet, and fine twined (white lunar) linen, of needlework;

38 And the five (red radius) pillars of it with their (lunar) hooks: and he overlaid their chapiters and their fillets with (solar) gold: but their five sockets were of (solar) brass.

37 And (Perseus) Bezaleel made the ark of shittim (Acacia) wood: two cubits and a half was the length of it, and a cubit and a half the breadth of it, and a cubit and a half the height of it:

2 And he overlaid it with pure (solar) gold within and without, and made a (60°) crown of (solar) gold to it round about.

3 And he cast for it four rings of (solar) gold, to be set by the four corners of it; even two (lunar) rings upon the one side of it, and two (lunar) rings upon the other side of it.

4 And he made (red radius) staves of shittim (Acacia) wood, and overlaid them with (solar) gold.

5 And he put the (red radius) staves into the (lunar) rings by the sides of the ark, to bear the ark.

6 And he made the (red radius) mercy seat of pure (solar) gold: two cubits and a half was the length thereof, and one cubit and a half the breadth thereof.

7 And he made two (red radius) cherubims of (solar) gold, beaten out (by Hercules and Perseus) of one piece made he them, on the two (red radius) ends of the mercy seat;

8 One (lunar) cherub on the end on this side, and another (lunar) cherub on the other end on that side: out of the mercy seat made he the (lunar) cherubims on the two ends thereof.

9 And the cherubims spread out their (red radius) wings on high, and covered with their wings over the mercy seat, with their (lunar) faces one to another; even to the mercy seatward were the faces of the (lunar) cherubims.

10 And he made the table of shittim (Acacia) wood: two cubits was the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof:

11 And he overlaid it with pure (solar) gold, and made thereunto a crown of (solar) gold round about.

12 Also he made thereunto a border of an handbreadth round about; and made a (60°) crown of (solar) gold for the border thereof round about.

13 And he cast for it four (lunar) rings of (solar) gold, and put the rings upon the four (red radius) corners that were in the four feet thereof.

14 Over against the border were the (lunar) rings, the places for the (red radius) staves to bear the table.

15 And he made the (red radius) staves of shittim (Acacia) wood, and overlaid them with (solar) gold, to bear the table.

16 And he made the (lunar and solar) vessels which were upon the table, his dishes, and his spoons, and his bowls, and his covers to cover withal, of pure (solar) gold.

17 And he made the (red radius) (60°) candlestick of pure (solar) gold: of (Hercules and Perseus) beaten work made he the candlestick; his (red radius) shaft, and his branch, his (lunar) bowls, his (solar) knops, and his (lunar) flowers, were of the same:

18 And six (red radius) branches going out of the sides thereof; three (red radius) branches of the candlestick out of the one side thereof, and three branches of the candlestick out of the other side thereof:

19 Three (lunar) bowls made after the fashion of almonds in one branch, a (solar) knop and a (lunar) flower; and three (lunar) bowls made like almonds in another branch, a (solar) knop and a (lunar) flower: so throughout the six branches going out of the candlestick.

20 And in the candlestick were four (lunar) bowls made like almonds, his (solar) knops, and his (lunar) flowers:

21 And a (solar) knop under two (red radius) branches of the same, and a (solar) knop under two (red radius) branches of the same, and a (solar) knop under two (red radius) branches of the same, according to the six branches going out of it.

22 Their knops and their branches were of the same: all of it was one beaten (by Hercules and Perseus) work of pure gold.

23 And he made his seven (solar and lunar) lamps, and his snuffers, and his snuffdishes, of pure (solar) gold.

24 Of a talent of pure (solar) gold made he it, and all the vessels thereof.

25 And he made the (red radius) incense altar of shittim (Acacia) wood: the length of it was a cubit, and the breadth of it a cubit; it was foursquare; and two cubits was the height of it; the (60°) (red radius) horns thereof were of the same.

26 And he overlaid it with pure (solar) gold, both the top of it, and the sides thereof round about, and the (60°) horns of it: also he made unto it a crown of (solar) gold round about.

27 And he made two (lunar) rings of (solar) gold for it under the crown thereof, by the two (red radius) corners of it, upon the two sides thereof, to be places for the (red radius) staves to bear it withal.

28 And he made the (red radius) staves of shittim (Acacia) wood, and overlaid them with (solar) gold.

29 And he made the holy anointing (solar) oil, and the pure (red radius) incense of sweet spices, according to the work of the apothecary.

 

38 And he made the (red radius) altar of (solar) burnt offering of shittim (Acacia) wood: five cubits was the length thereof, and five cubits the breadth thereof; it was foursquare; and three cubits the height thereof.

2 And he made the (red radius) horns thereof on the four corners of it; the (60°) horns thereof were of the same: and he overlaid it with (solar) brass.

3 And he made all the vessels of the altar, the pots, and the shovels, and the basons, and the fleshhooks, and the firepans: all the vessels thereof made he of (solar) brass.

4 And he made for the altar a brasen grate of network under the compass thereof beneath unto the midst of it.

5 And he cast four (lunar) rings for the four ends of the grate of (solar) brass, to be places for the (red radius) staves.

6 And he made the (red radius) staves of shittim (Acacia) wood, and overlaid them with (solar) brass.

7 And he put the (red radius) staves into the (lunar) rings on the sides of the altar, to bear it withal; he made the altar hollow with boards.

8 And he made the laver of (solar) brass, and the foot of it of (solar) brass, of the lookingglasses of the (Gemini) women assembling, which assembled at the (red radius) door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

9 And he made the court: on the south side southward the hangings of the court were of fine twined (white lunar) linen, an hundred cubits:

10 Their (red radius) pillars were twenty, and their (solar) brasen sockets twenty; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets were of (lunar) silver.

11 And for the north side the hangings were an hundred cubits, their (red radius) pillars were twenty, and their sockets of (solar) brass twenty; the (lunar) hooks of the pillars and their fillets of (lunar) silver.

12 And for the west side were hangings of fifty cubits, their (red radius) pillars ten, and their (solar) sockets ten; the (lunar) hooks of the (red radius) pillars and their fillets of (lunar) silver.

13 And for the east side eastward fifty cubits.

14 The hangings of the one side of the gate were fifteen cubits; their (red radius) pillars three, and their (solar) sockets three.

15 And for the other side of the court gate, on this hand and that hand, were hangings of fifteen cubits; their (red radius) pillars three, and their (solar) sockets three.

16 All the hangings of the court round about were of fine twined (lunar white) linen.

17 And the sockets for the pillars were of (solar) brass; the hooks of the (red radius) pillars and their fillets of (lunar) silver; and the overlaying of their chapiters of (lunar) silver; and all the (red radius) pillars of the court were filleted with (lunar) silver.

18 And the hanging for the gate of the court was needlework, of (lunar) blue, and purple, and (red radius) scarlet, and fine twined (white lunar) linen: and twenty cubits was the length, and the height in the breadth was five cubits, answerable to the hangings of the court.

19 And their (red radius) pillars were four, and their sockets of (solar) brass four; their hooks of (lunar) silver, and the overlaying of their chapiters and their fillets of (lunar) silver.

20 And all the (red radius) pins of the tabernacle, and of the court round about, were of (solar) brass.

21 This is the sum of the (red radius) tabernacle, even of the tabernacle of testimony, as it was counted, according to the commandment of (Ophiuchus) Moses, for the service of the (Gemini) Levites, by the hand of (Perseus) Ithamar, son to (Hercules) Aaron the priest.

22 And (Perseus) Bezaleel the son Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, made all that the (Shekinah) Lord commanded (Ophiuchus) Moses.

23 And with him was (Castor) Aholiab, son of (Pollux) Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, an engraver, and a cunning workman, and an embroiderer in (lunar) blue, and in purple, and in (red radius) scarlet, and fine (lunar white) linen.

24 All the (solar) gold that was occupied for the work in all the work of the holy place, even the gold of the offering, was twenty and nine talents, and seven hundred and thirty shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary.

25 And the (lunar) silver of them that were numbered of the congregation was an hundred talents, and a thousand seven hundred and threescore and fifteen shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary:

26 A bekah for every man, that is, half a shekel, after the shekel of the sanctuary, for every one that went to be numbered, from twenty years old and upward, for six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty men.

27 And of the hundred talents of (lunar) silver were cast the sockets of the sanctuary, and the sockets of the vail; an hundred sockets of the hundred talents, a talent for a socket.

28 And of the thousand seven hundred seventy and five shekels he made (lunar) hooks for the pillars, and overlaid their chapiters, and filleted them.

29 And the (solar) brass of the offering was seventy talents, and two thousand and four hundred shekels.

30 And therewith he made the sockets to the door of the (red radius) tabernacle of the congregation, and the (solar) brasen altar, and the (solar) brasen grate for it, and all the vessels of the altar,

31 And the (lunar or solar) sockets of the court round about, and the sockets of the court gate, and all the (red radius) pins of the tabernacle, and all the pins of the court round about.

39 And of the (lunar) blue, and purple, and (red radius) scarlet, they made cloths of service, to do service in the holy place, and made the holy garments for (Hercules) Aaron; as the (Shekinah) Lord commanded (Ophiuchus) Moses.

2 And he made the ephod of (solar) gold, (lunar) blue, and purple, and (red radius) scarlet, and fine twined (lunar white) linen.

3 And they did beat the (solar) gold into thin (red radius) plates, and cut it into (red radius) wires, to work it in the (lunar) blue, and in the purple, and in the (red radius) scarlet, and in the fine (lunar white) linen, with cunning work.

4 They made shoulderpieces for it, to couple it together: by the two edges was it coupled together.

5 And the curious girdle of his ephod, that was upon it, was of the same, according to the work thereof; of (solar) gold, (lunar) blue, and purple, and (red radius) scarlet, and fine twined (lunar white) linen; as the (Shekinah) Lord commanded (Ophiuchus) Moses.

6 And they wrought (lunar) onyx stones inclosed in ouches of (solar) gold, graven, as signets are graven, with the names of the (Gemini) children of Israel.

7 And he put them on the shoulders of the ephod, that they should be (lunar) stones for a memorial to the (Gemini) children of Israel; as the (Shekinah) Lord commanded (Ophiuchus) Moses.

8 And he made the (red radius) breastplate of cunning work, like the work of the ephod; of (solar) gold, (lunar) blue, and purple, and (red radius) scarlet, and fine twined (lunar white) linen.

9 It was foursquare; they made the breastplate double: a span was the length thereof, and a span the breadth thereof, being doubled.

10 And they set in it four rows of stones: the first row was a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle: this was the first row.

11 And the second row, an (green Milky Way) (lunar) emerald, a (lunar) sapphire, and a (lunar) diamond.

12 And the third row, a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst.

13 And the fourth row, a beryl, an onyx, and a jasper: they were inclosed in ouches of (solar) gold in their inclosings.

14 And the stones were according to the names of the (Gemini) children of Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet, every one with his name, according to the twelve tribes.

This means they had the capability to engrave into diamond. How?

15 And they made upon the breastplate chains at the ends, of wreathen work of pure (solar) gold.

16 And they made two (lunar) ouches of (solar) gold, and two (lunar and solar) gold rings; and put the two rings in the two ends of the (red radius) breastplate.

17 And they put the two wreathen (lunar) chains of (solar) gold in the two (lunar) rings on the ends of the (red radius) breastplate.

18 And the two ends of the two wreathen chains they fastened in the two ouches, and put them on the shoulderpieces of the (lunar) ephod, before it.

19 And they made two rings of (solar) gold, and put them on the two ends of the (red radius) breastplate, upon the border of it, which was on the side of the ephod inward.

20 And they made two other (solar) golden (lunar) rings, and put them on the two sides of the ephod underneath, toward the forepart of it, over against the other coupling thereof, above the curious girdle of the ephod.

21 And they did bind the breastplate by his (lunar) rings unto the rings of the ephod with a (red radius) lace of (lunar) blue, that it might be above the curious girdle of the ephod, and that the breastplate might not be loosed from the ephod; as the (Shekinah) Lord commanded (Ophiuchus) Moses.

22 And he made the robe of the ephod of woven work, all of (lunar) blue.

23 And there was an hole in the midst of the robe, as the hole of an habergeon, with a band round about the hole, that it should not rend.

24 And they made upon the hems of the robe pomegranates of (lunar) blue, and purple, and (red radius) scarlet, and twined (lunar white) linen.

25 And they made bells of pure (solar) gold, and put the bells between the (red radius) (lunar) pomegranates upon the hem of the robe, round about between the pomegranates;

26 A (solar) bell and a (red radius) pomegranate, a (solar) bell and a (lunar blue) pomegranate, round about the hem of the robe to minister in; as the (Shekinah) Lord (red radius) commanded (Ophiuchus) Moses.

27 And they made coats of fine (lunar white) linen of woven work for (Hercules) Aaron, and for his (Gemini) sons,

28 And a (lunar white) mitre of fine linen, and goodly bonnets of fine (lunar white) linen, and linen breeches of fine twined (lunar white) linen,

29 And a girdle of fine twined (lunar white) linen, and (lunar) blue, and purple, and (red radius) scarlet, of needlework; as the (Shekinah) Lord commanded (Ophiuchus) Moses.

30 And they made the plate of the holy (60°) crown of pure (solar) gold, and wrote upon it a writing, like to the engravings of a signet, Holiness To The Lord.

31 And they (red radius) tied unto it a lace of (lunar) blue, to fasten it on high upon the mitre; as the (Shekinah) Lord commanded (Ophiuchus) Moses.

32 Thus was all the work of the (red radius) tabernacle of the tent of the congregation finished: and the (Gemini) children of Israel did according to all that the Lord commanded Moses, so did they.

33 And they brought the tabernacle unto Moses, the (red radius) tent, and all his furniture, his taches, his boards, his bars, and his pillars, and his (lunar) sockets,

34 And the covering of (Aries) rams' skins dyed (radius) red, and the covering of (blue) badgers' skins, and the vail of the covering,

35 The ark of the testimony, and the (red radius) staves thereof, and the mercy seat,

36 The table, and all the vessels thereof, and the (lunar round white) shewbread,

37 The pure (solar) (red radius) (60°) candlestick, with the (lunar and solar) lamps thereof, even with the lamps to be set in order, and all the vessels thereof, and the (solar) oil for light,

38 And the golden (solar) altar, and the anointing oil, and the sweet (red radius stick) incense, and the hanging for the tabernacle door,

39 The (solar) brasen altar, and his (60°) grate of (solar) brass, his (red radius) staves, and all his vessels, the (solar) laver and his (solar) foot,

40 The hangings of the court, his (red radius) pillars, and his (lunar) sockets, and the hanging for the court gate, his (red radius) cords, and his (red radius) pins, and all the (solar and lunar) vessels of the service of the tabernacle, for the tent of the congregation,

41 The cloths of service to do service in the holy place, and the holy garments for (Hercules) Aaron the priest, and his (Gemini) sons' garments, to minister in the priest's office.

42 According to all that the (Shekinah) Lord commanded (Ophiuchus) Moses, so the (Gemini) children of Israel made all the work.

43 And (Ophiuchus) Moses did look upon all the work, and, behold, they had done it as the (Shekinah) Lord had (red radius) commanded, even so had they done it: and Moses (red radius) blessed them.

 

40:1 And the (Shekinah) Lord (red radius) spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, saying,

2 On the first day of the first month shalt thou set up the (red radius) tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.

3 And thou shalt put therein the ark of the testimony, and cover the ark with the vail.

4 And thou shalt bring in the table, and set in order the things that are to be set in order upon it; and thou shalt bring in the (solar golden) candlestick, and light the (lunar) lamps thereof.

5 And thou shalt set the altar of (solar) gold for the (red radius) incense before the ark of the testimony, and put the hanging of the door to the tabernacle.

6 And thou shalt set the (solar) altar of the burnt offering before the (red radius) door of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.

7 And thou shalt set the (solar golden) laver between the tent of the congregation and the (solar) altar, and shalt put (lunar) water therein.

8 And thou shalt set up the (red radius) court round about, and hang up the hanging at the court gate.

9 And thou shalt take the (solar golden) anointing oil, and anoint the (red radius) tabernacle, and all that is therein, and shalt hallow it, and all the (solar and lunar) vessels thereof: and it shall be holy.

10 And thou shalt anoint the (solar) altar of the burnt offering, and all his (solar and lunar) vessels, and sanctify the altar: and it shall be an altar most holy.

11 And thou shalt anoint the (solar) laver and his foot, and sanctify it.

12 And thou shalt bring (Hercules) Aaron and his (Gemini) sons unto the door of the (red radius) tabernacle of the congregation, and wash them with (lunar) water.

13 And thou shalt put upon (Hercules) Aaron the holy garments, and anoint him, and sanctify him; that he may minister unto me in the priest's office.

14 And thou shalt bring his (Gemini) sons, and clothe them with coats:

15 And thou shalt anoint them, as thou didst anoint their father, that they may minister unto me in the priest's office: for their anointing shall surely be an everlasting priesthood throughout their generations.

16 Thus did (Ophiuchus) Moses: according to all that the (Shekinah) Lord commanded him, so did he.

17 And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, that the (red radius) tabernacle was reared up.

18 And (Ophiuchus) Moses reared up the (red radius) tabernacle, and fastened his (lunar) sockets, and set up the (red radius) boards thereof, and put in the (red radius) bars thereof, and reared up his (red radius) pillars.

19 And he spread abroad the (red radius) tent over the tabernacle, and put the covering of the tent above upon it; as the (Shekinah) Lord commanded (Ophiuchus) Moses.

20 And he took and put the testimony into the ark, and set the (red radius) staves on the ark, and put the mercy seat above upon the ark:

21 And he brought the ark into the tabernacle, and set up the vail of the covering, and covered the ark of the testimony; as the (Shekinah) Lord commanded (Ophiuchus) Moses.

22 And he put the table in the tent of the congregation, upon the side of the tabernacle northward, without the vail.

23 And he set the (lunar round white) bread in order upon it before the Lord; as the Lord had commanded Moses.

24 And he put the (solar) (60°) candlestick in the tent of the congregation, over against the table, on the side of the tabernacle southward.

25 And he (solar) lighted the lamps before the Lord; as the Lord commanded Moses.

26 And he put the (solar) golden altar in the tent of the congregation before the vail:

27 And he burnt (red radius stick) sweet incense thereon; as the Lord commanded Moses.

28 And he set up the hanging at the door of the tabernacle.

29 And he put the (solar) altar of burnt offering by the door of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation, and offered upon it the burnt offering and the meat offering; as the (Shekinah) Lord commanded (Ophiuchus) Moses.

30 And he set the (solar) laver between the tent of the congregation and the altar, and put (lunar) water there, to wash withal.

31 And (Ophiuchus) Moses and (Hercules) Aaron and his (Gemini) sons washed their hands and their feet thereat:

32 When they went into the tent of the congregation, and when they came near unto the altar, they washed; as the Lord commanded Moses.

33 And he reared up the court round about the tabernacle and the altar, and set up the hanging of the court gate. So Moses finished the work.

34 Then a (Milky Way) cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the (solar Shekinah) glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.

35 And (Ophiuchus) Moses was not able to enter into the tent of the congregation, because the (Milky Way) cloud abode thereon, and the (solar Shekinah) glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.

36 And when the (Milky Way) cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the (Gemini) children of Israel went onward in all their journeys:

37 But if the (Milky Way) cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up.

38 For the (Milky Way) cloud of the Lord was upon the tabernacle by day, and (solar Shekinah) fire was on it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.
