31:1 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,
31:2 See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah,
31:3 and have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in every work,
31:4 to devise artistic work -- to work in gold, and in silver, and in copper,
31:5 and in cutting of stones, for setting, and for carving of timber -- to work in all manner of work.
31:6 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 --
31:7 the tent of meeting and the ark of the testimony, and the mercy-seat that is thereupon, and all the utensils of the tent,
31:8 and the table and its utensils, and the pure lamp-stand and all its utensils, and the altar of incense;
31:9 and the altar of burnt-offering and all its utensils, and the laver and its stand;
31:10 and the garments of service, both the holy garments of Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to serve as priests;
31:11 and the anointing oil, and the incense of fragrant drugs for the sanctuary: according to all that I have commanded thee shall they do.
31:12 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,
31:13 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.
31:14 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.
31:15 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.
31:16 And the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations -- [it is] an everlasting covenant.
31:17 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.
31:18 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.
