The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying, 1 Then the LORD said to Moses,
2 See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, 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 have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in every work, 3 and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, ability and knowledge in all kinds of crafts--
4 to devise artistic work -- to work in gold, and in silver, and in copper, 4 to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze,
5 and in cutting of stones, for setting, and for carving of timber -- to work in all manner of work. 5 to cut and set stones, to work in wood, and to engage in all kinds of craftsmanship.
6 And I, behold, I have given with him Aholiab the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan; and in the heart of every one that is wise-hearted have I given wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded thee -- 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 testimony, and the mercy-seat that is thereupon, and all the utensils of 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 and its utensils, and the pure lamp-stand and all its utensils, and the altar of incense; 8 the table and its articles, the pure gold lampstand and all its accessories, the altar of incense,
9 and the altar of burnt-offering and all its utensils, and the laver and its stand; 9 the altar of burnt offering and all its utensils, the basin with its stand--
10 and the garments of service, both the holy garments of Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to serve 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 anointing oil, and the incense of fragrant drugs for the sanctuary: according to all that I have commanded thee shall they do. 11 and the anointing oil and fragrant incense for the Holy Place. They are to make them just as I commanded you."
12 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying, 12 Then the LORD said to Moses,
13 And thou, speak thou unto the children of Israel, saying, Surely my sabbaths shall ye keep; for this is a sign between me and you throughout your generations, that ye may know that it is I, Jehovah, who do hallow you. 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 Keep the sabbath, therefore; for it is holy unto you; every one that profaneth it shall certainly be put to death: yea, whoever doeth work on it, that soul shall be cut off from among his peoples. 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 shall work be done; but on the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, holy to Jehovah: whoever doeth work on the sabbath day shall certainly 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 shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations -- [it is] an everlasting covenant. 16 The Israelites are to observe the Sabbath, celebrating it for the generations to come as a lasting covenant.
17 It shall be a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever; for [in] six days Jehovah made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed. 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 he gave to Moses, when he had ended speaking with him on mount Sinai, the two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with 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.
