Now Moses called a meeting of all the people and told them, "You must obey these instructions from the LORD.
Each week, work for six days only. The seventh day is a day of total rest, a holy day that belongs to the LORD. Anyone who works on that day will die.
Do not even light fires in your homes on that day."
Then Moses said to all the people, "This is what the LORD has commanded.
Everyone is invited to bring these offerings to the LORD: gold, silver, and bronze;
blue, purple, and scarlet yarn; fine linen; goat hair for cloth;
tanned ram skins and fine goatskin leather; acacia wood;
olive oil for the lamps; spices for the anointing oil and the fragrant incense;
onyx stones, and other stones to be set in the ephod and the chestpiece.
"Come, all of you who are gifted craftsmen. Construct everything that the LORD has commanded:
the entire Tabernacle, including the sacred tent and its coverings, the clasps, frames, crossbars, posts, and bases;
the Ark and its poles; the Ark's cover -- the place of atonement; the inner curtain to enclose the Ark in the Most Holy Place;
the table, its carrying poles, and all of its utensils; the Bread of the Presence;
the lampstand and its accessories; the lamp cups and the oil for lighting;
the incense altar and its carrying poles; the anointing oil and fragrant incense; the curtain for the entrance of the Tabernacle;
the altar of burnt offering; the bronze grating of the altar and its carrying poles and utensils; the large washbasin with its pedestal;
the curtains for the walls of the courtyard; the posts and their bases; the curtain for the entrance to the courtyard;
the tent pegs of the Tabernacle and courtyard and their cords;
the beautifully stitched clothing for the priests to wear while ministering in the Holy Place; the sacred garments for Aaron and his sons to wear while officiating as priests."
