The Lord has spoken to Moses of the Sabbath and the offerings for the tabernacle. Now Moses is telling those things to the children of Israel.
And Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel together.
Moses (Moses is repeating what the Lord told him in Exodus 31:12-17): These are the words which the Lord has commanded, that you should do them. Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you a holy day, a sabbath of rest to the Lord: whoever does work in it shall be put to death. You shall not kindle a fire in your habitations on the sabbath day.
Offerings for the Tabernacle
This is the thing which the Lord commanded, saying, (Moses is repeating what the Lord told him in Exodus 25:1-9) Take an offering for the Lord from among you. Whoever is of a willing heart, let him bring an offering of the Lord;
gold, and silver, and brass,
blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen,
goats’ hair, And rams’ skins dyed red, and badgers’ skins,
oil for the light,
spices for anointing oil, and for the sweet incense,
onyx stones, and stones to be set for the ephod, and for the breastplate.
Moses (continued): And every wise hearted among you shall come, and make all that the Lord has commanded;
The tabernacle, his tent, and his covering, his taches, and his boards, his bars, his pillars, and his sockets, (Exodus 26)
The ark, and the staves for it, with the mercy seat, and the veil of the covering, (Exodus 25:10-22)
The table, and his staves, and all his vessels, and the showbread, (Exodus 25:23-30)
The candlestick also for the light, and his furniture, and his lamps, with the oil for the light, (25:31-40)
And the incense altar, and his staves, (Exodus 30:1-10)
and the anointing oil, (Exodus 30:22-33)
and the sweet incense, (Exodus 30:34-38)
and the hanging for the door at the entering in of the tabernacle, (Exodus 26:36)
The altar of burnt offering, with his brasen grate, his staves, and all his vessels, the laver and his foot, (Exodus 27:1-8)
The hangings of the court, his pillars, and their sockets, and the hanging for the door of the court, The pins of the tabernacle, and the pins of the court, and their cords, (Exodus 27:9-19)
The cloths of service, to do service in the holy place, the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest’s office. (Exodus 28)
And all the congregation of the children of Israel departed from the presence of Moses.
And they came, every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing, and they brought the Lord’s offering to the work of the tabernacle of the congregation, and for all his service, and for the holy garments.
And they came, both men and women, as many as were willing hearted, and brought bracelets, and earrings, and rings, and tablets, all jewels of gold: and every man that offered an offering of gold to the Lord.
And every man, with whom was found blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats’ hair, and red skins of rams, and badgers’ skins, brought them.
Every one that did offer an offering of silver and brass brought the Lord’s offering:
and every man, with whom was found acacia wood for any work of the service, brought it.
And all the women that were wise hearted spun with their hands, and brought that which they had spun, both of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine linen. And all the women whose heart stirred them up in wisdom spun goats’ hair.
And the rulers brought onyx stones, and stones to be set, for the ephod, and for the breastplate;
And spice, and oil for the light, and for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense.
The children of Israel brought a willing offering to the Lord, every man and woman, whose heart made them willing to bring for all manner of work, which the Lord had commanded to be made by the hand of Moses.
Moses (to the children of Israel): (Moses is repeating what the Lord told him in Exodus 31:1-6) See, the Lord has called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah; And he has filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship; And to devise curious works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass, And in the cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of wood, to make any manner of cunning work. And the Lord has put in his heart that he may teach, both he, and Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. The Lord has filled them with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of work, of the engraver, and of the cunning workman, and of the embroiderer, in blue, and in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of them that do any work, and of those that devise cunning work.
