1Later Moses called the entire assembly of the sons of Israel together and said to them: “These are the words that Jehovah has commanded, to do them:2Six days may work be done, but on the seventh day it will become something holy to YOU, a sabbath of complete rest to Jehovah. Anybody doing work on it will be put to death.3YOU must not light a fire in any of YOUR dwelling places on the sabbath day.”
4And Moses went on to say to the entire assembly of the sons of Israel: “This is the word that Jehovah has commanded, saying,5‘From among yourselves take up a contribution for Jehovah. Let every willing‐hearted one bring it as Jehovah’s contribution, namely, gold and silver and copper6and blue thread and wool dyed reddish purple and coccus scarlet material and fine linen and goat’s hair7and ram skins dyed red and sealskins and acacia wood8and oil for the luminary and balsam oil for the anointing oil and for the perfumed incense9and onyx stones and setting stones for the eph′od and for the breastpiece.
10“‘And let all the wise‐hearted ones among YOU come and make all that Jehovah has commanded,11namely, the tabernacle with its tent and its covering, its hooks and its panel frames, its bars, its pillars and its socket pedestals;12the Ark and its poles, the cover and the curtain of the screen;13the table and its poles and all its utensils and the showbread;14and the lampstand of illumination and its utensils and its lamps and the oil for illumination;15and the altar of incense and its poles; and the anointing oil and the perfumed incense; and the screen of the entrance for the tabernacle’s entrance;16the altar of burnt offering and the copper grating that is for it, its poles and all its utensils; the basin and its stand;17the hangings of the courtyard, its pillars and its socket pedestals; and the screen of the gate of the courtyard;18the tent pins of the tabernacle and the tent pins of the courtyard and their cords;19the garments of knitted work for ministering in the sanctuary, the holy garments for Aaron the priest and the garments of his sons for acting as priests.’”
20Accordingly all the assembly of the sons of Israel went out from before Moses.21Then they came, everyone whose heart impelled him, and they brought, everyone whose spirit incited him, Jehovah’s contribution for the work of the tent of meeting and for all its service and for the holy garments.22And they kept coming, the men along with the women, every willing‐hearted one. They brought brooches and earrings and rings and female ornaments, all sorts of articles of gold, that is, everyone who presented the wave offering of gold to Jehovah.23And all those with whom there were found blue thread and wool dyed reddish purple and coccus scarlet material and fine linen and goat’s hair and ram skins dyed red and sealskins, brought them.24All those contributing the contribution of silver and copper brought Jehovah’s contribution, and all those with whom there was found acacia wood for all the work of the service brought it.
25And all the women who were wise of heart spun with their hands, and they kept bringing as yarn the blue thread and the wool dyed reddish purple, the coccus scarlet material and the fine linen.26And all the women whose hearts impelled them with wisdom spun the goat’s hair.
27And the chieftains brought onyx stones and setting stones for the eph′od and the breastpiece,28and the balsam oil and the oil for illumination and for the anointing oil and for the perfumed incense.29Every man and woman whose hearts incited them to bring something for all the work that Jehovah had commanded to make by means of Moses did so; the sons of Israel brought a voluntary offering to Jehovah.
30Then Moses said to the sons of Israel: “See, Jehovah has called by name Bez′al‧el the son of U′ri the son of Hur of the tribe of Judah.31And he proceeded to fill him with the spirit of God in wisdom, in understanding and in knowledge and in every sort of craftsmanship32and for designing devices, for working in gold and silver and copper,33and in working of stones to set them and in working of wood to make ingenious products of every sort.34And he has put it into his heart that he should teach, he and O‧ho′li‧ab the son of A‧his′a‧mach of the tribe of Dan.35He has filled them with wisdom of heart to do all the work of a craftsman and an embroiderer and of a weaver in blue thread and wool dyed reddish purple, in coccus scarlet material and fine linen, and of a loom worker, men doing every sort of work and designing devices.
