1And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
2Behold, I have called by name Bezalel the son of Uri the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah.
3And I have filled him with a divine spirit of wisdom, and understanding, and knowledge, to invent in every work,
4and to frame works, to labor in gold, and silver, and brass, and blue, and purple, and spun scarlet,
5and works in stone, and for artificers’ work in wood, to work at all works.
6And I have appointed him and Oholiab the son of Ahisamach of the tribe of Dan, and to everyone understanding in heart I have given understanding; and they shall make all things as many as I have appointed thee—
7the tabernacle of witness, and the ark of the covenant, and the propitiatory that is upon it, and the furniture of the tabernacle,
8and the altars, and the table and all its furniture,
9and the pure candlestick and all its furniture, and the laver and its base,
10and Aaron’s robes of ministry, and the robes of his sons to minister to me as priests,
11and the anointing oil and the compound incense of the sanctuary; according to all that I have commanded thee shall they make them.
12And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
13Do thou also charge the children of Israel, saying, Take heed and keep my Sabbaths; for they are a sign with me and among you throughout your generations, that ye may know that I am the Lord that sanctifies you.
14And ye shall keep the Sabbaths, because this is holy to the Lord for you; he that profanes it shall surely be put to death: every one who shall do a work on it, that soul shall be destroyed from the midst of his people.
15Six days thou shalt do works, but the seventh day is the Sabbath, a holy rest to the Lord; everyone who shall do a work on the seventh day shall be put to death.
16And the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbaths, to observe them throughout their generations.
17It is a perpetual covenant with me and the children of Israel, it is a perpetual sign with me; for in six days the Lord made the heaven and the earth, and on the seventh day he ceased, and rested.
18And he gave to Moses when he left off speaking to him in Mount Sinai the two tables of testimony, tables of stone written upon with the finger of God.
