The Sabbath

1Therefore, when all the multitude of the sons of Israel had gathered together, he said to them: “These are the things that the Lord has ordered to be done:

2For six days you shall do work; the seventh day, the Sabbath and the rest of the Lord, will be holy to you; whoever will have done any work in it shall be killed. 3You shall not kindle a fire in any of your dwelling places throughout the day of the Sabbath.”

Offerings for the Tabernacle
(Exodus 25:1–9)

4And Moses said to the entire crowd of the sons of Israel: “This is the word which the Lord has instructed, saying: 5Separate from among you the first-fruits to the Lord. Let all who are willing and have a ready soul offer these to the Lord: gold, and silver, and brass, 6hyacinth, and purple, and twice-dyed scarlet, and fine linen, the hair of goats, 7and the skins of rams, dyed red, and violet skins, setim wood, 8and oil to prepare lights and to produce ointment, and most sweet incense, 9onyx stones and gems, to adorn the ephod and the breastplate.

The Skilled Craftsmen

10And whoever among you is wise, let him come and make what the Lord has commanded: 11the tabernacle, certainly, and its roof, and also the covering, the rings, and the panels with the bars, the tent pegs and the bases, 12the ark and its bars, the propitiatory, and the veil that is drawn before it, 13the table with its bars and vessels, and the bread of the presence, 14the lampstand to hold up the lights, its vessels and lamps, and the oil to the nourish the fire, 15the altar of incense and its bars, and the oil of unction, and the incense of aromatics, the tent at the door of the tabernacle, 16the altar of holocaust and its grate of brass, with the bars and vessels, the washtub and its base, 17the curtains of the atrium, with the columns and the bases, the hanging at the doors of the vestibule, 18the tent pegs of the tabernacle and the atrium, with their little cords, 19the vestments, which are to be used in the ministry of the Sanctuary, the vestments of Aaron, the high priest, as well as those of his sons, in order to exercise the priesthood to me.”

The People Offer Gifts

20And all the multitude of the sons of Israel, departing from the sight of Moses, 21offered the first-fruits to the Lord with a most ready and devout mind, to accomplish the work of the tabernacle of the testimony. Whatever was needed for worship and for the holy vestments, 22men along with women provided: arm bands and earrings, rings and bracelets. And every vessel of gold was separated, to be donated to the Lord. 23If anyone had hyacinth, and purple, and twice-dyed scarlet, fine linen and the hair of goats, the skins of rams, dyed red, and violet skins, 24metal of silver and brass, they offered it to the Lord, along with setim wood for various uses. 25But the skillful women also gave whatever they had spun: hyacinth, purple, and vermillion, as well as fine linen, 26and the hair of goats, donating everything of their own accord. 27Yet truly, the leaders offered onyx stones and gems, for the ephod and the breastplate, 28and aromatics and oil, to maintain the lights, and to prepare ointment, and also to produce incense with a most sweet odor. 29All the men and women offered donations with a devout mind, so that the works might be done which the Lord had ordered by the hand of Moses. All the sons of Israel dedicated voluntary offerings to the Lord.

Bezalel and Oholiab
(Exodus 31:1–11)

30And Moses said to the sons of Israel: “Behold, the Lord has called by name Bezalel, the son of Uri, the son of Hur, from the tribe of Judah, 31and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, and understanding, and knowledge, and all teaching, 32to design and to fashion, with gold and silver and brass, 33and with engraving stones, and with the skill of a carpenter. Whatever can be skillfully invented, 34he has given to his heart. It is likewise with Oholiab, the son of Ahisamach from the tribe of Dan. 35He has taught both of them wisdom, in order to do the work of carpentry, tapestry, and embroidery, from hyacinth, and purple, and twice-dyed scarlet, and fine linen, and every textile, and to discover whatever may be new.”
