29:42 “This will be a regular 1 burnt offering throughout your generations at the entrance of the tent of meeting before the Lord, where I will meet 2 with you to speak to you there. 29:43 There I will meet 3 with the Israelites, and it will be set apart as holy by my glory. 4
1 tn The translation has “regular” instead of “continually,” because they will be preparing this twice a day.
2 tn The relative clause identifies the place in front of the Tent as the place that Yahweh would meet Moses. The main verb of the clause is אִוָּעֵד (’ivva’ed), a Niphal imperfect of the verb יָעַד (ya’ad), the verb that is cognate to the name “tent of meeting” – hence the name. This clause leads into the next four verses.
3 tn The verb now is a Niphal perfect from the same root, with a vav (ו) consecutive. It simply continues the preceding verb, announcing now that he would meet the people.
4 tn Or “will be sanctified by my glory” (KJV and ASV both similar).
sn The tabernacle, as well as the priests and the altar, will be sanctified by the power of Yahweh’s presence. The reference here is to when Yahweh enters the sanctuary in all his glory (see Exod 40:34f.).
