35 And Moshe assembled kol Adat Bnei Yisroel, and said unto them, These are the Devarim which Hashem hath commanded, that ye should do them.

Sheshet yamim shall work be done, but on the Yom HaShevi’i shall be to you [plural] Kodesh Shabbos Shabbaton to Hashem; whosoever doeth work therein shall be put to death.

Ye shall kindle no eish throughout your habitations upon Yom HaShabbos.

And Moshe spoke unto kol Adat Bnei Yisroel, saying, This is the thing which Hashem commanded, saying,

Take ye from among you a terumah (offering) unto Hashem; all of nediv lev of him (i.e., urged by his heart), let him bring it, a terumat Hashem, zahav, and kesef, and nechoshet,

And turquoise, and purple, and scarlet wool, and fine linen, and goat hair,

And red-dyed ram skins, and tachash skins, and acacia wood,

And shemen for the light, and spices for shemen hamishchah, and for the aromatic ketoret,

And shoham stones, and gemstones to be set for the Ephod, and for the Choshen.

10 And kol chacham lev among you shall come, and make all that Hashem hath commanded:

11 The Mishkan, its Ohel, and its Mikhseh, its hooks, and its kerashim (planks), its crossbars, its ammudim, and its sockets,

12 The Aron, and the carrying poles thereof, with the Kapporet, and the Parochet HaMasach,

13 The Shulchan, and its carrying poles, and all its utensils, and the Lechem HaPanim,

14 The Menorat HaMaohr, and its utensils, and its nerot (lamps), with the Shemen HaMaohr,

15 And the Mizbe’ach HaKetoret, and its carrying poles, and the Shemen HaMishchah, and the ketoret spices, and the masach hapetach at the petach of the Mishkan,

16 The Mizbe’ach HaOlah, with its mikhbar hanechoshet, its carrying poles, and all its utensils, the Kiyor, and its Stand,

17 The curtains of the khatzer, its ammudim, and its sockets, and the masach Sha’ar HaKhatzer,

18 The tent pegs of the Mishkan, and the tent pegs of the khatzer, and their cords,

19 The Bigdei HaSerad leSharet baKodesh (to do service in HaKodesh), the Bigdei HaKodesh for Aharon the kohen, and the garments of his banim, to minister in the kohen’s office.

20 And all the Adat Bnei Yisroel departed from the presence of Moshe.

21 And they came, every one whose lev moved him, and every one of nedevah ruach of him, and they brought terumat Hashem to the work of the Ohel Mo’ed, and for kol avodat of it, and for the Bigdei HaKodesh.

22 And they came, both anashim and nashim, as many as were nediv lev, and brought bracelets, and face-adornment rings, and rings, and body ornaments, all jewelry of zahav; and every ish that offered offered a tenufat zahav unto Hashem.

23 And kol ish, with whom was found turquoise, and purple, and scarlet wool, and fine linen, and goat hair, and dyed red rams skin, and tachash skins, brought them.

24 Every one that did offer a terumat kesef and nechoshet brought the terumat Hashem; and found acacia wood for any melachet haAvodah, brought it.

25 And every isha that was chachmat lev spun with her hands, and brought the spun yarn, both of turquoise, and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine linen.

26 And all the nashim whose lev stirred them up in chochmah spun goat hair.

27 And the nesi’im brought shoham stones, and gemstones to be set, for the Ephod, and for the Choshen;

28 And spice, and shemen for the light, and for the shemen hamishchah, and for the ketoret spices.

29 The Bnei Yisroel brought a nedavah unto Hashem, kol ish and isha, with nadav lev of them brought for kol hamelachah, which Hashem had commanded to be done through Moshe.

30 And Moshe said unto the Bnei Yisroel, See, Hashem hath called by shem Bezalel ben Uri, ben Chur, of the tribe of Yehudah;

31 And He hath filled him with the Ruach Elohim [Ac 2:4], in chochmah, in understanding, and in da’as, and in all manner of workmanship;

32 And to make machashavot (artistic works), to work in zahav, and in kesef, and in nechoshet,

33 And in the cutting of gems, to set them, and in wood carving, to make every melachat machashavet (work of art).

34 And He hath given him the ability to teach, both he, and Oholiav ben Achisamach, of the tribe of Dan.

35 Them hath He filled with chochmat lev, to do all manner of artistic work, of the carver, and of the weaver of artistic design work, and of the embroiderer, in turquoise, and in purple, in scarlet wool, and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of them that do artistic work, and of those that make artistic designs.

Sabbath Regulations

35 Moses assembled the whole Israelite community and said to them, “These are the things the Lord has commanded(A) you to do: For six days, work is to be done, but the seventh day shall be your holy day, a day of sabbath(B) rest to the Lord. Whoever does any work on it is to be put to death.(C) Do not light a fire in any of your dwellings on the Sabbath day.(D)

Materials for the Tabernacle(E)(F)

Moses said to the whole Israelite community, “This is what the Lord has commanded: From what you have, take an offering for the Lord. Everyone who is willing is to bring to the Lord an offering of gold, silver and bronze; blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen; goat hair; ram skins dyed red and another type of durable leather[a]; acacia wood; olive oil(G) for the light; spices for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense; and onyx stones and other gems to be mounted on the ephod and breastpiece.

10 “All who are skilled among you are to come and make everything the Lord has commanded:(H) 11 the tabernacle(I) with its tent and its covering, clasps, frames, crossbars, posts and bases; 12 the ark(J) with its poles and the atonement cover and the curtain(K) that shields it; 13 the table(L) with its poles and all its articles and the bread of the Presence; 14 the lampstand(M) that is for light with its accessories, lamps and oil for the light; 15 the altar(N) of incense with its poles, the anointing oil(O) and the fragrant incense;(P) the curtain for the doorway at the entrance to the tabernacle;(Q) 16 the altar(R) of burnt offering with its bronze grating, its poles and all its utensils; the bronze basin(S) with its stand; 17 the curtains of the courtyard with its posts and bases, and the curtain for the entrance to the courtyard;(T) 18 the tent pegs(U) for the tabernacle and for the courtyard, and their ropes; 19 the woven garments worn for ministering in the sanctuary—both the sacred garments(V) for Aaron the priest and the garments for his sons when they serve as priests.”

20 Then the whole Israelite community withdrew from Moses’ presence, 21 and everyone who was willing and whose heart moved them came and brought an offering to the Lord for the work on the tent of meeting, for all its service, and for the sacred garments. 22 All who were willing, men and women alike, came and brought gold jewelry of all kinds: brooches, earrings, rings and ornaments. They all presented their gold as a wave offering to the Lord. 23 Everyone who had blue, purple or scarlet yarn(W) or fine linen, or goat hair, ram skins dyed red or the other durable leather brought them. 24 Those presenting an offering of silver or bronze brought it as an offering to the Lord, and everyone who had acacia wood for any part of the work brought it. 25 Every skilled woman(X) spun with her hands and brought what she had spun—blue, purple or scarlet yarn or fine linen. 26 And all the women who were willing and had the skill spun the goat hair. 27 The leaders(Y) brought onyx stones and other gems(Z) to be mounted on the ephod and breastpiece. 28 They also brought spices and olive oil for the light and for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense.(AA) 29 All the Israelite men and women who were willing(AB) brought to the Lord freewill offerings(AC) for all the work the Lord through Moses had commanded them to do.

Bezalel and Oholiab(AD)

30 Then Moses said to the Israelites, “See, the Lord has chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, 31 and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills(AE) 32 to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, 33 to cut and set stones, to work in wood and to engage in all kinds of artistic crafts. 34 And he has given both him and Oholiab(AF) son of Ahisamak, of the tribe of Dan, the ability to teach(AG) others. 35 He has filled them with skill to do all kinds of work(AH) as engravers, designers, embroiderers in blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen, and weavers—all of them skilled workers and designers.
