1 And the Lord said to Moses, 1 Then the LORD said to Moses,
2 I have made selection of Bezalel, the son of Uri, by name, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah: 2 "See, I have chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah,
3 And I have given him the spirit of God and made him wise and full of knowledge and expert in every sort of handwork, 3 and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, ability and knowledge in all kinds of crafts--
4 To do all sorts of delicate work in gold and silver and brass; 4 to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze,
5 In cutting stones for framing, and to do every form of woodwork. 5 to cut and set stones, to work in wood, and to engage in all kinds of craftsmanship.
6 And I have made selection of Oholiab with him, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan; and in the hearts of all who are wise I have put the knowledge to make whatever I have given you orders to have made; 6 Moreover, I have appointed Oholiab son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, to help him. Also I have given skill to all the craftsmen to make everything I have commanded you:
7 The Tent of meeting, and the ark of the law, and the cover which is on it, and all the things for the tent, 7 the Tent of Meeting, the ark of the Testimony with the atonement cover on it, and all the other furnishings of the tent--
8 And the table with its vessels, and the holy light-support with all its vessels, and the altar for the burning of spices, 8 the table and its articles, the pure gold lampstand and all its accessories, the altar of incense,
9 And the altar of burned offerings with all its vessels, and the washing-vessel with its base, 9 the altar of burnt offering and all its utensils, the basin with its stand--
10 And the robes of needlework, the holy robes for Aaron and for his sons, for their use when acting as priests, 10 and also the woven garments, both the sacred garments for Aaron the priest and the garments for his sons when they serve as priests,
11 And the holy oil, and the perfume of sweet spices for the holy place; they will do whatever I have given you orders to have done. 11 and the anointing oil and fragrant incense for the Holy Place. They are to make them just as I commanded you."
12 And the Lord said to Moses, 12 Then the LORD said to Moses,
13 Say to the children of Israel that they are to keep my Sabbaths; for the Sabbath day is a sign between me and you through all your generations; so that you may see that I am the Lord who makes you holy. 13 "Say to the Israelites, 'You must observe my Sabbaths. This will be a sign between me and you for the generations to come, so you may know that I am the LORD, who makes you holy.
14 So you are to keep the Sabbath as a holy day; and anyone not honouring it will certainly be put to death: whoever does any work on that day will be cut off from his people. 14 " 'Observe the Sabbath, because it is holy to you. Anyone who desecrates it must be put to death; whoever does any work on that day must be cut off from his people.
15 Six days may work be done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of complete rest, holy to the Lord; whoever does any work on the Sabbath day is to be put to death. 15 For six days, work is to be done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day must be put to death.
16 And the children of Israel are to keep the Sabbath holy, from generation to generation, by an eternal agreement. 16 The Israelites are to observe the Sabbath, celebrating it for the generations to come as a lasting covenant.
17 It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever; because in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he took his rest and had pleasure in it. 17 It will be a sign between me and the Israelites forever, for in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day he abstained from work and rested.' "
18 And when his talk with Moses on Mount Sinai was ended, he gave him the two stones of the law, two stones on which was the writing made by the finger of God. 18 When the LORD finished speaking to Moses on Mount Sinai, he gave him the two tablets of the Testimony, the tablets of stone inscribed by the finger of God.
