God spoke to Moses, telling him to
Vayedaber Adonay el-Moshe lemor.
||speak to Aaron and say to him, 'When you light the lamps, the seven lamps shall illuminate the menorah.'
Daber el-Aharon ve'amarta elav beha'alotecha et-hanerot el-mul pney hamenorah ya'iru shiv'at hanerot.
||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.
(Targum; Saadia). Or, 'set in order' (Septuagint). Literally, 'raise up.'
Or, 'Shall shine toward the center of the menorah' (Rashi; Rashbam). See Exodus 25:37.
