Oholiab and Bezalel

1The Lord said to Moses, 2See, I have called by name aBezalel the son of Uri, son of bHur, of the tribe of Judah, 3and I have cfilled him with the Spirit of God, with ability and intelligence, with knowledge and all craftsmanship, 4to devise artistic designs, to work in gold, silver, and bronze, 5in cutting stones for setting, and in carving wood, to work in every craft. 6And behold, I have appointed with him dOholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. And I have given to all able men eability, that they may make all that I have commanded you: 7 fthe tent of meeting, and gthe ark of the testimony, and hthe mercy seat that is on it, and all the furnishings of the tent, 8 ithe table and its utensils, and jthe pure lampstand with all its utensils, and kthe altar of incense, 9and lthe altar of burnt offering with all its utensils, and mthe basin and its stand, 10and nthe finely worked garments,
Or garments for worship
the holy garments for Aaron the priest and the garments of his sons, for their service as priests,
11and pthe anointing oil and the fragrant qincense for the Holy Place. According to all that I have commanded you, they shall do.”

The Sabbath

12And the Lord said to Moses, 13You are to speak to the people of Israel and say, ‘Above all you shall keep my Sabbaths, for this is a sign between me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I, the Lord, sanctify you. 14You shall keep the Sabbath, because it is holy for you. Everyone who profanes it shall be put to death. rWhoever does any work on it, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. 15 sSix days shall work be done, but tthe seventh day is a Sabbath of solemn rest, holy to the Lord. uWhoever does any work on the Sabbath day shall be put to death. 16Therefore the people of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, observing the Sabbath throughout their generations, as a covenant forever. 17 vIt is a sign forever between me and the people of Israel that win six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and xon the seventh day he rested and was refreshed.’”

18And he gave to Moses, when he had finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, the ytwo tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written with zthe finger of God.
