1#Ex 34:32Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel together, and said to them: These are the things the Lord has commanded you to do. 2#Ex 20:9–10; 34:21Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day you shall have a holy day, a Sabbath of rest to the Lord. Whoever does any work on it must be put to death. 3#Ex 16:23; 12:16You must not kindle fire in any of your dwellings on the Sabbath day.

Ex 25:1–7; 39:32–41
4Moses said to all the congregation of the children of Israel: This is the thing which the Lord commanded, saying: 5#Ex 25:2–7Take from among you an offering to the Lord. Whoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it as an offering to the Lord: gold, silver, and bronze, 6and blue, purple, and scarlet, fine linen, goats’ hair, 7rams’ skins dyed red, and porpoise skins, and acacia wood, 8oil for the light, and spices for anointing oil, and for the fragrant incense, 9onyx stones, and gemstones to be set for the ephod and for the breastplate.
10Every skilled craftsman among you shall come and make all that the Lord has commanded: 11#Ex 26:1–37the tabernacle with its tent and its covering, its hooks and its boards, its bars, its pillars, and its sockets; 12#Ex 25:10–22the ark with its poles, the mercy seat, and the veil that conceals it; 13#Ex 25:23–30; Lev 24:5–6the table with its poles, and all its utensils, and the showbread; 14#Ex 25:31–39the lampstand also for the light and its utensils and its lamps, and the oil for the light; 15#Ex 30:1–10and the incense altar with its poles, and the anointing oil and the fragrant incense, and the hanging for thedoor at the entrance of the tabernacle; 16#Ex 27:1–8; 30:18–21the altar of burnt offering with its bronze grating, its poles, and all its utensils, the basin and its stand; 17the hangings of the court, its pillars and their sockets, and the curtain for the gate of the court; 18#Ex 27:19the pegs of the tabernacle and the pegs of the court and their cords; 19#Ex 31:10the woven garments for serving in the holy place, the holy garments for Aaron the priest and the garments of his sons, to minister as priests.
20Then all the congregation of the children of Israel departed from the presence of Moses. 21#Ex 25:2; 35:5Everyone whose heart stirred him and everyone whose spirit was willing came and brought the Lord’s offering for the work of the tent of meeting and for all its service and for the holy garments. 22They came, both men and women, as many as had willing hearts, and brought brooches, earrings, rings and bracelets, all kinds of gold jewelry, and everyone that offered an offering of gold to the Lord. 23#1Ch 29:8Everyone who had blue, purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats’ hair, and red skins of rams, and porpoise skins, brought them. 24Everyone who was making a contribution of silver and bronze brought the Lord’s offering, and everyone who had acacia wood for any work of the service brought it. 25#Ex 28:3All the women that were skilled spun with their hands and brought what they had spun, both of blue, purple, and scarlet, and of fine linen. 26#Ex 35:21All the women whose hearts stirred them to action and were skilled spun goats’ hair. 27#1Ch 29:6; Ezr 2:68The leaders brought onyx stones and gemstones to be set for the ephod and for the breastplate, 28#Ex 30:23–38and spice and oil for the light, and for the anointing oil, and for the fragrant incense. 29#Ex 35:4The children of Israel brought a willing offering to the Lord, every man and woman whose heart was willing to bring material for all the work which the Lord had commanded through Moses to be made.
Bezalel and Oholiab
30Moses said to the children of Israel: See, the Lord has called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. 31And He has filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of craftsmanship, 32to design artistic works, to work in gold, in silver, and in bronze, 33and in the cutting of stones for settings and in the carving of wood in order to make every manner of artistic work. 34#Ex 31:6; 2Ch 2:14He also has put in his heart to teach, both he and Oholiab, the son of Ahisamak, of the tribe of Dan. 35#Ex 35:31; 31:3He has filled them with skill to do all manner of work as craftsmen; as designers; as embroiderers in blue, in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen; and as weavers: as craftsmen of every work and artistic designers.
