The Book of Shemos (Exodus) concludes with this Parsha.

After finishing all the different parts, vessels and garments used in the
Mishkan, Moshe gives a complete accounting and enumeration of
all the contributions and of the various clothing and vessels
which had been fashioned.

Bnei Yisrael bring everything to Moshe.  He inspects the handiwork
and notes that everything was made according to G-d's
specifications.  Moshe blesses the people.

G-d speaks to Moshe and tells him that the Mishkan should
be set up on the first day of the first month, i.e., the month of Nissan.

He tells Moshe the order of assembly of the Mishkan and its vessels.
Moshe does everything in the prescribed manner.

When the Mishkan is finally complete with every vessel in place,
a cloud descends upon it, indicating that G-d's glory rests there.
Whenever the cloud moved away from the Mishkan, Bnei Yisrael
would follow it.  At night the cloud was replaced by a pillar of fire.
