The Tabernacle Underwritten

1 "Now Bezalel and Oholiab, and every askillful person in whom the LORD has put bskill and understanding to know how to perform all the work cin the construction of the sanctuary, shall perform in accordance with all that the LORD has commanded." 2 Then Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab and every dskillful person in ewhom the LORD had put fskill, 1everyone whose heart stirred him, to come to the work to perform it. 3 They received from Moses all the gcontributions which the sons of Israel had brought hto perform the work iin the construction of the sanctuary. And they still continued bringing to him freewill offerings every morning. 4 And all the jskillful men who were performing all the work of the sanctuary came, each from kthe work which lhe was performing, 5 and they said to mMoses, "2The people are bringing much more than enough for the nconstruction work which the LORD commanded us to operform." 6 So Moses issued a command, and a pproclamation was circulated throughout the camp, saying, "Let no man or woman any longer perform work for the qcontributions of the sanctuary." Thus the people were restrained from bringing any more. 7 3For the rmaterial they had was sufficient and more than enough for all the work, to perform it.
