Exodus 31:1–18

And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, 2 See, I have called by name aBezaleel the son of Uri, the son of bHur, of the tribe of Judah: 3 and I have cfilled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship, 4 to devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass, 5 and in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship. 6 And I, behold, I have given with him dAholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts of all that are ewise hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded thee; 7 fthe tabernacle of the congregation, and gthe ark of the Testimony, and hthe mercy seat that is thereupon, and all the * furniture of the tabernacle, 8 and ithe table and his * furniture, and kthe pure candlestick with all his * furniture, and lthe altar of incense, 9 and mthe altar of burnt offering with all his * furniture, and nthe laver and his foot, 10 and othe clothes of service, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest’s office, 11 pand the anointing oil, and qsweet incense for the holy place: according to all that I have commanded thee shall they do.

12 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, 13 Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, rVerily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the Lord that doth sanctify you. 14 Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for swhosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from amongst his people. 15 tSix days may work be done; but in the useventh is the sabbath of rest, * holy to the Lord: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. 16 Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. 17 It is xa sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for yin six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed. 18 And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, ztwo tables of Testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.
