Exodus 31 ©

1 Bezaleel and Aholiab are called, and qualified for the work of the tabernacle. 12 The observance of the sabbath is again commanded. 18 Moses receiveth the two tables.


AND the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,


See, I have acalled by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah:


And I have bfilled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all *manner of workmanship,


To cdevise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass,


And in dcutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to work in all *manner of workmanship.


And I, behold, I have given with ehim Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts of all that are fwise hearted I have put wisdom, that they gmay make all that I have commanded thee;


The htabernacle of the congregation, and the ark of the testimony, and the mercy seat that is thereupon, and all the 1furniture of the tabernacle,


And the itable and his *furniture, and the pure candlestick with all his furniture, and the altar of incense,


And the jaltar of burnt offering with all his *furniture, and the *laver and his foot,


And the kcloths of service, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest's office,


And lthe anointing oil, and msweet incense for the holy place : according to all that I have commanded thee shall they do.


¶And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,


Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, *Verily nmy sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you.


Ye oshall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be pcut off from among his people.


qSix days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, 2holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.


Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for ra perpetual covenant.


It is sa sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for tin six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was urefreshed.


¶And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an vend of communing with him upon mount Sinai, wtwo tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the xfinger of God.
