9:19 *Note: The location of the Kanrodai was identified on 5/26/1875 (lunar calendar). Prior to this, Izo Iburi was instructed to build a wooden model of the Kanrodai in 1873 (Refer to 9:45).

God’s intention was hastening for the construction of the Kanrodai since this time. The intent behind this verse was to hasten the preparation for the basic construction, for the place where the Kanrodai was to be constructed had already been determined according to God’s intention.
