God spoke to Moses, telling him to

Daber el-Aharon ve'amarta elav beha'alotecha et-hanerot el-mul pney hamenorah ya'iru shiv'at hanerot.
8:3 Aaron did that, lighting the lamps to illuminate the menorah, as God commanded Moses.
Vaya'as ken Aharon el-mul pney hamenorah he'elah neroteyha ka'asher tsivah Adonay et-Moshe.
