Exodus 31



1 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

2 See, I have called by name Bezaleel, the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah;

3 and I have·​·filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all the work*;

4 to think thoughts, to make in gold, and in silver, and in bronze;

5 and in crafting of stone for filling, and in crafting of wood, to do in all the work.

6 And I, behold, I have given with him Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan; and in the heart of everyone that is wise in heart I have put wisdom; and they shall make all that I have commanded thee;

7 the Tabernacle of the congregation, and the ark for the Testimony, and the place of atonement that is on it, and all the vessels of the Tabernacle;

8 and the table and its vessels, and the pure* lampstand and all its vessels, and the altar of incense;

9 and the altar of burnt·​·offering and all its vessels, and the laver and its base;

10 and the garments of the ministry, and the garments of holiness for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to be·​·priests;

11 and the oil of anointing, and the fragrant incense for the holy place; according to all that I have commanded thee shall they do.

12 And Jehovah said to Moses, saying,

13 And speak thou to the sons of Israel, saying, Surely you shall keep My Sabbaths; for it is a sign between Me and you to your generations, to·​·know that I am Jehovah who makes you holy.

14 And you shall keep the Sabbath; for it is holy to you; he that profanes it, dying he shall·​·die; for all who do work in it, even that soul shall be cut·​·off from among his peoples.

15 Six days shall work be done; but on the seventh day is the Sabbath of Sabbath*, holy to Jehovah; everyone who does work on the Sabbath day, dying he shall die.

16 And the sons of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to make the Sabbath, for their generations, a covenant of an age.

17 It is a sign between Me and the sons of Israel for an age; for in six days Jehovah made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He ceased, and refreshed· his ·soul.

18 And He gave to Moses, when He completed speaking with him on Mount Sinai, the two tablets of the Testimony, tablets of stone, written with the finger of God.
