Exodus 31

The Skilled Craftsmen

1 a  Now the  Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2See, I have called by name Bezalel, the b  son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. 3“I have c  filled him with the Spirit of God in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all kinds of
Or workmanship
Lit devise devices
make artistic designs for work in gold, in silver, and in
Or copper
5and in the cutting of stones
Lit to fill in (for a setting)
for settings, and in the carving of wood, that he may work in all kinds of
Or workmanship
6And behold, I Myself have
Lit given
appointed with him j  Oholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan; and in the hearts of all who are
Lit wise of heart
skillful I have put
Lit wisdom
skill, that they may make all that I have commanded you:
7 m  the tent of meeting, and n  the ark of testimony, and o  the
Lit propitiatory
mercy seat upon it, and all the furniture of the tent,
8 q  the table also and its
Or vessels
utensils, and the s  pure gold lampstand with all its
Or vessels
utensils, and u  the altar of incense,
9 v  the altar of burnt offering also with all its
Or vessels
utensils, and x  the laver and its stand,
Or service garments
z  woven garments as well, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, with which to
Lit minister as priests
carry on their priesthood;
11 ab  the anointing oil also, and the ac  fragrant incense for the holy place, they are to make them according to all that I have commanded you.”

The Sign of the Sabbath

12The  Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 13But as for you, speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘ ad  You shall surely observe My sabbaths; for this is ae  a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the  Lord who sanctifies you. 14Therefore you are to observe the sabbath, for it is holy to you. af  Everyone 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. 15ag  For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day there is a ah  sabbath of complete rest, holy to the  Lord; ai  whoever does any work on the sabbath day shall surely be put to death. 16So the sons of Israel shall observe the sabbath, to
Lit do
celebrate the sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant.’
17 ak  It is a sign between Me and the sons of Israel forever; al  for in six days the  Lord made heaven and earth, but on the seventh day He ceased from labor, and was refreshed.”

18When He had finished speaking with him upon Mount Sinai, He gave Moses am  the two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone an  written by the finger of God.
