1Moses assembled all the congregation of the children of Israel and said to them, “These are the words that Yahweh has commanded that you should do them.
2‘Six days is work to be done, but on the seventh day there is to be a holy day for you, a Sabbath of solemn rest to Yahweh; whoever does any work on it must be put to death.
3You are not to light a fire in any of your dwellings on the Sabbath day.’”
4Moses spoke to all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying, “This is the thing that Yahweh commanded, saying,
5Take from among you an offering to Yahweh. Whoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it, Yahweh’s offering: gold, silver, bronze,
6blue, purple, scarlet, fine linen, goats’ hair,
7rams’ skins dyed red, dugong skins, acacia wood,
8oil for the light, spices for the anointing oil and for the sweet incense,
9onyx stones and stones to be set for the ephod and for the breastplate.
10“Let every wise-hearted man among you come and make all that Yahweh has commanded:
11the tabernacle, its outer covering, its roof, its clasps, its boards, its bars, its pillars, and its bases;
12the ark, and its poles, the mercy seat, the curtain of the screen,
13the table with its poles and all its utensils, and the Bread of the Presence;
14the menorah also for the light, with its utensils, its oil lamps, and the oil for the light;
15and the altar of incense with its poles, the anointing oil, the sweet incense, the screen for the entrance at the door of the tabernacle;
16the altar of burnt offering with its grate of bronze, its poles, and all its utensils; the bronze basin and its base;
17the hangings of the courtyard, its pillars, their bases, and the screen for the gate of the courtyard;
18the tent pegs of the tabernacle, the pegs of the courtyard, and their cords;
19the finely worked garments for ministering in the Holy Place, the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons to minister in the priest’s office.”
20All the congregation of the children of Israel departed from the presence of Moses.
21They came, everyone whose heart stirred him up, and everyone whom his spirit made willing, and brought Yahweh’s offering for the work of the Tent of Meeting and for all of its service and for the holy garments.
22They came, both men and women, as many as were willing-hearted, and brought brooches, earrings, signet rings and armlets, all jewels of gold; even every man who offered an offering of gold to Yahweh.
23Everyone with whom was found blue, purple, scarlet, fine linen, goats’ hair, rams’ skins dyed red, and dugong skins, brought them.
24Everyone who offered an offering of silver and bronze brought Yahweh’s offering, and everyone with whom was found acacia wood for any work of the service brought it.
25All the women who were wise-hearted spun with their hands and brought what they had spun, the blue, the purple, the scarlet and the fine linen.
26All the women whose heart stirred them up in wisdom spun the goats’ hair.
27The rulers brought the onyx stones and the stones to be mounted on the ephod and on the breastplate,
28and the spice, and the oil for the light, for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense.
29The children of Israel brought a freewill offering to Yahweh, every man and woman whose heart made them willing to bring for all the work that Yahweh had commanded to be made by Moses.
30Moses said to the children of Israel, “Behold, Yahweh has called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur of the tribe of Judah.
31He has filled him with the spirit of God in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge and in all kinds of workmanship,
32and to make skillful works, to work in gold, in silver, in bronze,
33in cutting of stones for mounting and in carving of wood, to work in all kinds of skillful workmanship.
34And he has put in his heart to teach, both he and Oholiab the son of Ahisamach of the tribe of Dan.
35He has filled them with wisdom of heart, to work all kinds of workmanship, of the engraver, of the skillful workman and of the embroiderer, in blue, in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of those who do any workmanship and of those who make skillful works.
