3 And I have filled him [with] the Spirit of God, with wisdom and with skill and with knowledge and with every [kind of] craftsmanship, 3 and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, ability and knowledge in all kinds of crafts--

5 and in stonecutting for setting and in cutting wood, for doing every [kind of] craftsmanship. 5 to cut and set stones, to work in wood, and to engage in all kinds of craftsmanship.
6 And, look, I have given with him Oholiab the son of Ahisamach, from the tribe of Dan, and I have put skill in the heart of all [the] skilled of heart, and they will make all that I have commanded you-- 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 assembly and the ark of the testimony and the atonement cover that [is] on it and all the equipment 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 all its equipment, and the pure [gold] lampstand and all its equipment, and the incense altar, 8 the table and its articles, the pure gold lampstand and all its accessories, the altar of incense,

10 and the garments of woven material, and {the garments of the sanctuary} for 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 fragrant incense for the sanctuary. According to all that I have commanded you, they will make [it]. 11 and the anointing oil and fragrant incense for the Holy Place. They are to make them just as I commanded you."
12 And Yahweh spoke to Moses [and] said, 12 Then the LORD said to Moses,
13 "And you, speak to the {Israelites}, saying, 'Surely you must keep my Sabbaths, because it [is] a sign between me and you throughout your generations, [in order] to know that I [am] Yahweh, who consecrates 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 And you must keep the Sabbath, because it is holy for you; defilers of it will surely be put to death, because anyone who does work on it--that person will be cut off from among 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 [On] six days work can be done, and on the seventh {is a Sabbath of complete rest}, {a holy day} for Yahweh; anyone doing work on the Sabbath day will surely 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 The {Israelites} will pay attention to the Sabbath [in order] to fulfill the Sabbath throughout their generations [as] a lasting covenant. 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 {Israelites} forever, because [in] six days Yahweh made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh he ceased and recovered." 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.' "
