Brenton Septuagint Translation
The Tabernacle Underwritten
1And Beseleel wrought, and Eliab and every one wise in understanding, to whom was given wisdom and knowledge, to understand to do all the works according to the holy offices, according to all things which the Lord appointed.
2And Moses called Beseleel and Eliab, and all that had wisdom, to whom God gave knowledge in their heart, and all who were freely willing to come forward to the works, to perform them. 3And they received from Moses all the offerings, which the children of Israel brought for all the works of the sanctuary to do them; and they continued to receive the gifts brought, from those who brought them in the morning. 4And there came all the wise men who wrought the works of the sanctuary, each according to his own work, which they wrought. 5And one said to Moses, The people bring an abundance too great in proportion to all the works which the Lord has appointed them to do. 6And Moses commanded, and proclaimed in the camp, saying, Let neither man nor woman any longer labour for the offerings of the sanctuary; and the people were restrained from bringing any more. 7And they had materials sufficient for making the furniture, and they left some besides.
