God’s Provision of the Skilled Workers

1And Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
  2“Behold, I have called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah,
  3and I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom and in understanding and in knowledge in all kinds of craftsmanship,
  4to devise skillful works, to work in gold and in silver and in bronze,
  5and in cutting of stones for settings, and in carving of wood, that he may work in all kinds of craftsmanship.
  6I, behold, I have appointed to be with him Oholiab the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan; and in the heart of all who are wise-hearted I have put wisdom, so that they may make all that I have commanded you:
  7the Tent of Meeting, and the ark of the testimony, and the mercy seat that is on it, and all the furniture of the Tent,
  8and the table and its utensils, and the pure gold menorah with all its utensils, and the altar of incense,
  9and the altar of burnt offering with all its utensils, and the bronze basin and its base,
  10and the finely worked garments—the holy garments for Aaron the priest and the garments of his sons to serve as priests,
  11and the anointing oil, and the incense of sweet spices for the holy place; they must make them according to all that I have commanded you.”

Observing the Sabbath

12And Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
  13“And you, speak also to the children of Israel, saying, you are to keep my Sabbaths! For it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations so that you will know that I am Yahweh who makes you holy.
  14You are to keep the Sabbath, for it is holiness for you. Everyone who desecrates it must be put to death, yes, death! For whoever does any work on it, that soul must be cut off from among his people.
  15Six days work is to be done, but on the seventh day is a Sabbath of complete rest, holy to Yahweh. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day is to be put to death, yes, death!
  16The children of Israel are to keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as a lasting covenant.
  17It is a sign between me and the children of Israel forever, for in six days Yahweh made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.”

The Two Stone Tablets

18He gave to Moses, when he finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, the two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written with the finger of God.
