1And Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel together, and said, These are the words which the Lord has spoken for you to do them.
2Six days shalt thou perform works, but on the seventh day shall be rest—a holy Sabbath—a rest for the Lord: every one that does work on it, let him die.
3Ye shall not burn a fire in any of your dwellings on the Sabbath day; I am the Lord.
4And Moses spoke to all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying, This is the thing which the Lord has appointed you, saying,
5Take of yourselves an offering for the Lord: every one that engages in his heart shall bring the firstfruits to the Lord; gold, silver, brass,
6blue, purple, double scarlet spun, and fine linen spun, and goats’ hair,
7and rams’ skins dyed red, and skins dyed blue, and incorruptible wood,
9and sardius stones, and stones for engraving for the shoulder piece and full-length robe.
10And every man that is wise in heart among you, let him come and work all things whatsoever the Lord has commanded.
11The tabernacle, and the cords, and the coverings, and the rings, and the bars, and the posts,
12and the ark of the testimony, and its staffs, and its propitiatory, and the veil,
12aand the curtains of the court, and its posts, and the emerald stones, and the incense, and the anointing oil,
13and the table and all its furniture,
14and the candlestick for the light and all its furniture,
16and the altar and all its furniture;
19and the holy garments of Aaron the priest, and the garments in which they shall do service; and the garments of priesthood for the sons of Aaron and the anointing oil, and the compound incense.
20And all the congregation of the children of Israel went out from Moses. And they brought, they whose heart prompted them, and they to whomsoever it seemed good in their mind, each an offering:
21and they brought an offering to the Lord for all the works of the tabernacle of witness, and all its services, and for all the robes of the sanctuary.
22And the men, even every one to whom it seemed good in his heart, brought from the women, even brought seals and earrings, and finger rings, and necklaces, and bracelets, every article of gold.
23And all as many as brought ornaments of gold to the Lord, and with whomsoever fine linen was found; and they brought skins dyed blue, and rams’ skins dyed red.
24And everyone that offered an offering brought silver and brass, the offerings to the Lord; and they with whom was found incorruptible wood; and they brought offerings for all the works of the preparation.
25And every woman skilled in her heart to spin with her hands, brought spun articles, the blue, and purple, and scarlet and fine linen.
26And all the women to whom it seemed good in their heart in their wisdom, spun the goats’ hair.
27And the rulers brought the emerald stones, and the stones for setting in the ephod, and the oracle,
28and the compounds both for the anointing oil, and the composition of the incense.
29And every man and woman whose mind inclined them to come in and do all the works as many as the Lord appointed them to do by Moses—they the children of Israel brought an offering to the Lord.
30And Moses said to the children of Israel, Behold, God has called by name Bezalel the son of Uri the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah,
31and has filled him with a divine spirit of wisdom and understanding, and knowledge of all things,
32to labor skillfully in all works of cunning workmanship, to form the gold and the silver and the brass,
33and to work in stone, and to fashion the wood, and to work in every work of wisdom.
34And God gave improvement in understanding both to him, and to Oholiab the son of Ahisamach of the tribe of Dan.
35And God filled them with wisdom, understanding and perception, to understand to work all the works of the sanctuary, and to weave the woven and embroidered work with scarlet and fine linen, to do all work of curious workmanship and embroidery.
