1 aNow the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 "See, I have called by name Bezalel, the ason of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. 3 "I have afilled him with the Spirit of God in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all kinds of craftsmanship, 4 to make artistic designs for work in gold, in silver, and in bronze, 5 and in the cutting of stones for settings, and in the carving of wood, that he may work in all kinds of craftsmanship. 6 "And behold, I Myself have appointed with him aOholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan; and in the hearts of all who are skillful I have put skill, that they may make all that I have commanded you: 7 athe tent of meeting, and bthe ark of testimony, and cthe mercy seat upon it, and all the furniture of the tent, 8 athe table also and its utensils, and the bpure gold lampstand with all its utensils, and cthe altar of incense, 9 athe altar of burnt offering also with all its utensils, and bthe laver and its stand, 10 the awoven garments as well, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, with which to carry on their priesthood; 11 athe anointing oil also, and the bfragrant incense for the holy place, they are to make them according to all that I have commanded you." 12 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 13 "But as for you, speak to the sons of Israel, saying, 'aYou shall surely observe My sabbaths; for this is ba sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you. 14 'Therefore you are to observe the sabbath, for it is holy to you. aEveryone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people. 15 'aFor six days work may be done, but on the seventh day there is a bsabbath of complete rest, holy to the Lord; cwhoever does any work on the sabbath day shall surely be put to death. 16 'So the sons of Israel shall observe the sabbath, to celebrate the sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant.' 17 "aIt is a sign between Me and the sons of Israel forever; bfor in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, but on the seventh day He ceased from labor, and was refreshed." 18 When He had finished speaking with him upon Mount Sinai, He gave Moses athe two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, bwritten by the finger of God.
