Exodus 31


Bezaleel Appointed Chief of Construction

And the  lord spoke to Moses, saying, Behold, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. And I filled him [2spirit 1a divine] of wisdom, and understanding, and higher knowledge, [2in 3every 4work 1to consider], and to supervise construction; to work the gold, and the silver, and the brass, and the blue, and the purple and the [2scarlet 1spun], and the linen being twined, and the stonecutting works, and for the woodworkers of the works of wood -- to work according to all the works. And I have given him even Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. And to every one discerning in heart I have given understanding. And they shall make all as much as I gave orders to you -- the tent of the testimony, and the ark of the covenant, and the atonement-seat, the one upon it, and the equipment of the tent, and the altars, and the table, and all the utensils for it, and the [2lamp-stand 1pure], and all the utensils for it, and the bathing tub, and its base, 10 and the [2apparels 1ministry] of Aaron, and the apparels of his sons in the officiating as priest to me, 11 and the [2oil 1anointing], and the incense of the composition of the holy place -- according to all as much as I gave charge to you they shall make.

The Sabbath

12 And the  lord spoke to Moses, saying, 13 You also speak to the sons of Israel! saying, Perceive, and [2my Sabbaths 1guard]! For it is a sign by me and among you unto your generations, that you might know that I the  lord am the one sanctifying you. 14 And you shall guard the Sabbath, for [2holy 1it is] to you. The one profaning it, unto death shall be put to death. Every one who shall do [2on 3it 1work], [2shall be utterly destroyed 1that soul] from the midst of his people. 15 Six days you shall do works, but the [2day 1seventh 4Sabbath 5rest 3is a holy] to the  lord. All who shall do work on the day of the Sabbaths shall be put to death. 16 And [4shall guard 1the 2sons 3of Israel] the Sabbaths to observe them unto their generations. 17 [2covenant 1It is an eternal] with me and the sons of Israel, [3sign 1it is 2an eternal]. For in six days the  lord made the heaven and the earth, and on the [2day 1seventh] he ceased and rested. 18 And he gave to Moses, when he rested from speaking to him in mount Sinai, the two tablets of the testimony -- tablets of stone, written by the finger of God.
