Exodus 31

1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, 2"See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. 3And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom and in understanding and in knowledge and in all manner of workmanship, 4to devise skillful works: to work in gold and in silver and in brass, 5and in cutting of stones to set them, and in carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship. 6And I, behold, I have given with him Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan; and in the hearts of all who are wisehearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded thee: 7the tabernacle of the congregation, and the ark of the Testimony and the mercy seat that is thereupon, and all the furniture of the tabernacle, 8and the table and his furniture, and the pure candlestick with all his furniture, and the altar of incense, 9and the altar of burnt offering with all his furniture, and the laver and his foot, 10and the clothes of service, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest and the garments of his sons to minister in the priest's office, 11and the anointing oil and sweet incense for the holy place. According to all that I have commanded thee shall they do." EXOD 31:12 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, 13"Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, `Verily My 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 who doth sanctify you. 14Ye shall keep the Sabbath therefore, for it is holy unto you. Every one who defileth it shall surely be put to death; for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. 15Six days may work be done, but on the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD. Whosoever doeth any work on the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. 16Therefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations for a perpetual covenant. 17It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel for ever; for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.'" 18And He gave unto Moses, when He had made an end of communing with him upon Mount Sinai, two tablets of testimony, tablets of stone, written with the finger of God.
