Exodus 27:21 New English Translation (NET Bible)

21 In the tent of meeting[a] outside the curtain that is before the testimony,[b] Aaron and his sons are to arrange it from evening[c] to morning before the Lord. This is to be a lasting ordinance among the Israelites for generations to come.[d]


  1. Exodus 27:21 tn The LXX has mistakenly rendered this name “the tent of the testimony.”
  2. Exodus 27:21 tn Or “covenant,” or “treaty.”
  3. Exodus 27:21 sn The lamps were to be removed in the morning so that the wicks could be trimmed and the oil replenished (30:7) and then lit every evening to burn through the night.
  4. Exodus 27:21 sn This is the first of several sections of priestly duties. The point is a simple one here: those who lead the worship use the offerings of the people to ensure that access to God is illumined regularly. The NT will make much of the symbolism of light.
