Exodus 35 Modern English Version (MEV)
35 Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel together, and said to them: These are the things the Lord has commanded you to do. 2 Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day you shall have a holy day, a Sabbath of rest to the Lord. Whoever does any work on it must be put to death. 3 You must not kindle fire in any of your dwellings on the Sabbath day.
Offerings for the Tabernacle
4 Moses said to all the congregation of the children of Israel: This is the thing which the Lord commanded, saying: 5 Take from among you an offering to the Lord. Whoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it as an offering to the Lord: gold, silver, and bronze, 6 and blue, purple, and scarlet, fine linen, goats’ hair, 7 rams’ skins dyed red, and porpoise skins, and acacia wood, 8 oil for the light, and spices for anointing oil, and for the fragrant incense, 9 onyx stones, and gemstones to be set for the ephod and for the breastplate.
10 Every skilled craftsman among you shall come and make all that the Lord has commanded: 11 the tabernacle with its tent and its covering, its hooks and its boards, its bars, its pillars, and its sockets; 12 the ark with its poles, the mercy seat, and the veil that conceals it; 13 the table with its poles, and all its utensils, and the showbread; 14 the lampstand also for the light and its utensils and its lamps, and the oil for the light; 15 and the incense altar with its poles, and the anointing oil and the fragrant incense, and the hanging for the door at the entrance of the tabernacle; 16 the altar of burnt offering with its bronze grating, its poles, and all its utensils, the basin and its stand; 17 the hangings of the court, its pillars and their sockets, and the curtain for the gate of the court; 18 the pegs of the tabernacle and the pegs of the court and their cords; 19 the woven garments for serving in the holy place, the holy garments for Aaron the priest and the garments of his sons, to minister as priests.
20 Then all the congregation of the children of Israel departed from the presence of Moses. 21 Everyone whose heart stirred him and everyone whose spirit was willing came and brought the Lord’s offering for the work of the tent of meeting and for all its service and for the holy garments. 22 They came, both men and women, as many as had willing hearts, and brought brooches, earrings, rings and bracelets, all kinds of gold jewelry, and everyone that offered an offering of gold to the Lord. 23 Everyone who had blue, purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats’ hair, and red skins of rams, and porpoise skins, brought them. 24 Everyone who was making a contribution of silver and bronze brought the Lord’s offering, and everyone who had acacia wood for any work of the service brought it. 25 All the women that were skilled spun with their hands and brought what they had spun, both of blue, purple, and scarlet, and of fine linen. 26 All the women whose hearts stirred them to action and were skilled spun goats’ hair. 27 The leaders brought onyx stones and gemstones to be set for the ephod and for the breastplate, 28 and spice and oil for the light, and for the anointing oil, and for the fragrant incense. 29 The children of Israel brought a willing offering to the Lord, every man and woman whose heart was willing to bring material for all the work which the Lord had commanded through Moses to be made.
Bezalel and Oholiab
30 Moses said to the children of Israel: See, the Lord has called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. 31 And He has filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of craftsmanship, 32 to design artistic works, to work in gold, in silver, and in bronze, 33 and in the cutting of stones for settings and in the carving of wood in order to make every manner of artistic work. 34 He also has put in his heart to teach, both he and Oholiab, the son of Ahisamak, of the tribe of Dan. 35 He has filled them with skill to do all manner of work as craftsmen; as designers; as embroiderers in blue, in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen; and as weavers: as craftsmen of every work and artistic designers.
