31 2 God maketh Bezalel and Aholiab meet for his work. 13 The Sabbath day is the sign of our sanctification. 18 The Tables written by the finger of God.
1 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Behold, I [a]have called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah,
3 Whom I have filled with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all [b]workmanship:
4 To find out curious works to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass,
5 Also in the art to set stones, and to carve in timber, and to work in all manner of workmanship.
6 And behold, I have joined him with Aholiab the son of Ahisamach of the tribe of Dan, and in the hearts of all that are [c]wise hearted, have I put wisdom to make all that I have commanded thee:
7 That is, the Tabernacle of the Congregation, and the Ark of the Testimony, and the Mercy seat that shall be thereupon, with all instruments of the Tabernacle:
8 Also the Table and the instruments thereof, and the [d]pure Candlestick with all his instruments, and the Altar of perfume:
9 Likewise the Altar of burnt offering with all his instruments, and the Laver with his foot:
10 Also the garments of the ministration, and the holy garment for Aaron the Priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the Priest’s office,
11 And the [e]anointing oil, and sweet perfume for the Sanctuary according to all that I have commanded thee, shall they do.
12 ¶ Afterward the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
13 Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, and say, [f]Notwithstanding keep ye my Sabbaths: for it is a sign between me and you in your generations, that ye may know that I the Lord do sanctify you.
14 Ye shall therefore keep the [g]Sabbath: for it is holy unto you: he that defileth it, shall die the death: therefore whosoever worketh therein, the same person shall be even cut off from among his people.
15 Six days shall men work, but in the seventh day is the Sabbath of the holy rest to the Lord: whosoever doeth any work in the Sabbath day, shall die the death.
16 Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, that they may observe the [h]rest throughout their generations for an everlasting Covenant.
17 It is a sign between me and the children of Israel forever: for in six days the Lord made the heaven and the earth, and in the seventh day [i]he ceased and rested.
18 Thus (when the Lord had made an end of communing with Moses upon mount Sinai) he gave him two Tables [j]of the Testimony, even tables of stone, written with the finger of God.
