1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 2 "Behold, I have called by name, Bezalel the son of Uri son to Hur of the tribe of Judah. 3 And I have filled him with the spirit of God, with wisdom, understanding and knowledge: even in all manner work, 4 to find out subtle feats, to work in gold, silver and brass 5 and with the craft to grave stones, to set and to carve in timber, and to work in all manner workmanship. 6 And behold, I have given him, to be his companion, Ohaliab the son of Ahisamach of the tribe of Dan, and in the hearts of all that are wise-hearted I have put wisdom to make all that I have commanded thee: 7 the tabernacle of witness, and the ark of witness, and the mercy seat that is there upon, all the ornaments of the tabernacle, 8 and the table with his ordinance, and the pure candlestick with all his apparel, and the altar of cense, 9 and the altar of burnt offerings with all his vessels, and the laver with his foot, 10 and the vestments to minister in, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons to minister in, 11 and the anointing oil and the sweet cense for the sanctuary: according to all as I have commanded thee shall they do."
12 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 13 "Speak unto the children of Israel and say, 'In any wise see that ye keep my Sabbath, for it shall be a sign between me and you in your generations for to know, that I the LORD do sanctify you. 14 Keep my Sabbath therefore, that it be a holy thing unto you. He that defileth it, shall be slain therefore. For whosoever worketh therein, the same soul shall be rooted out from among his people. 15 Six days shall men work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the holy rest of the LORD: so that whosoever doeth any work in the Sabbath day, shall die for it. 16 Wherefore let the children of Israel keep the Sabbath, that they observe it throughout their generations, that it be an covenant forever. 17 For it shall be a sign between me, and the children of Israel for ever. For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and the seventh day he rested and was refreshed.'"
18 And when the LORD had made an end of communing with Moses upon the mount Sinai, he gave him two tables of witness: which were of stone and written with the finger of God.
