Shemoth (Exodus) 35
1And Mosheh assembled all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl, and said to them, “These are the Words which יהוה has commanded you to do:
2“Work is done for six days, but on the seventh day it shall be set-apart to you, a Sabbath of rest to יהוה. Anyone doing work on it is put to death.
3“Do not kindle a fire in any of your dwellings on the Sabbath day.”
4And Mosheh spoke to all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl, saying, “This is the word which יהוה commanded, saying,
5‘Take from among you a contribution to יהוה. Everyone whose heart so moves him, let him bring it as a contribution to יהוה: gold, and silver, and bronze,
6and blue, and purple, and scarlet material, and fine linen, and goats’ hair,
7and ram skins dyed red, and fine leather, and acacia wood,
8and oil for the light, and spices for the anointing oil and for the sweet incense,
9and shoham stones, and stones to be set in the shoulder garment and in the breastplate.
10‘And let all the wise-hearted among you come and make all that יהוה has commanded:
11the Dwelling Place, its tent and its covering, its hooks and its boards, its bars, its columns, and its sockets,
12the ark and its poles, the lid of atonement and the veil of the covering,
13the table and its poles, and all its utensils, and the showbread,
14and the lampstand for the light, and its utensils, and its lamps, and the oil for the light,
15and the incense slaughter-place, and its poles, and the anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and the covering for the door at the entrance of the Dwelling Place,
16the slaughter-place of ascending offering with its bronze grating, its poles, and all its utensils, the basin and its stand,
17the screens of the courtyard, its columns, and their sockets, and the covering for the gate of the courtyard,
18the pegs of the Dwelling Place, and the pegs of the courtyard, and their cords,
19the woven garments to do service in the set-apart place, the set-apart garments for Aharon the priest and the garments of his sons to serve as priests.’ ”
20And all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl withdrew from the presence of Mosheh.
21And everyone whose heart lifted him up and everyone whose spirit moved him came, and they brought the contribution to יהוה for the work of the Tent of Appointment, and for all its service, and for the set-apart garments.
22And they came, both men and women, all whose hearts moved them, and brought earrings and nose rings, and rings and necklaces, all golden goods, even every one who made a wave offering of gold to יהוה.
23And every man, with whom was found blue and purple and scarlet material, and fine linen, and goats’ hair, and rams’ skins dyed red, and fine leather, brought them.
24Everyone who would make a contribution to יהוה of silver or bronze, brought it. And everyone with whom was found acacia wood for any work of the service, brought it.
25And all the wise-hearted women spun yarn with their hands, and brought what they had spun, the blue and the purple, the scarlet material, and the fine linen.
26And all the women whose hearts lifted them up in wisdom spun the goats’ hair.
27And the rulers brought shoham stones, and the stones to be set in the shoulder garment and in the breastplate,
28and the spices and the oil for the light, and for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense.
29The children of Yisra’ĕl brought a voluntary offering to יהוה, all the men and women whose hearts moved them to bring all kinds of work which יהוה, by the hand of Mosheh, had commanded to be done.
30And Mosheh said to the children of Yisra’ĕl, “See, יהוה has called by name Betsal’ĕl son of Uri, son of Ḥur, of the tribe of Yehuḏah,
31and He has filled him with the Spirit of Elohim, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all work,
32to make designs, to work in gold and in silver and in bronze,
33and in cutting of stones for setting, and in carving wood, and to work in all workmanship of design.
34“And He has put in his heart the ability to teach, in him and Oholiaḇ son of Aḥisamaḵ, of the tribe of Dan.
35“He has filled them with skill to do all work of the engraver and the designer and embroiderer, in blue and in purple, in scarlet material, and in fine linen, and a weaver, doing any work, and makers of designs.
