Bezalel and Oholiab
31:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
31:2 See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri,
the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah:
31:3 And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in
wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all
manner of workmanship,
31:4 To devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in
silver, and in brass,
31:5 And in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving
of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship.
31:6 And I, behold, I have given with him Aholiab, the son
of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts of all
that are wise hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make
all that I have commanded thee;
31:7 The tabernacle of the congregation, and the ark of the
testimony, and the mercy seat that is thereupon, and all the
furniture of the tabernacle,
31:8 And the table and his furniture, and the pure
candlestick with all his furniture, and the altar of
31:9 And the altar of burnt offering with all his
furniture, and the laver and his foot,
31:10 And the cloths of service, and the holy garments for
Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister
in the priest's office,
31:11 And the anointing oil, and sweet incense for the holy
place: according to all that I have commanded thee shall
31:12 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
31:13 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 that doth sanctify you.
31:14 Ye shall 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 cut off from among his people.
31:15 Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the
sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work
in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.
31:16 Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the
sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their
generations, for a perpetual covenant.
31:17 It 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.
31:18 And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of
communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of
testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.
