Exodus 27:21

Context
27:21 In the tent of meeting 1  outside the curtain that is before the testimony, Aaron and his sons are to arrange it from evening 2  to morning before the Lord. This is to be a lasting ordinance among the Israelites for generations to come. 3 

Exodus 30:6

Context

30:6 “You are to put it in front of the curtain that is before the ark of the testimony (before the atonement lid that is over the testimony), where I will meet you.

1 tn The LXX has mistakenly rendered this name “the tent of the testimony.”

2 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.

3 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.
