them, These are the words which Jehovah has commanded you to do:
2 Work shall be done six days, but the seventh day shall be holy for you, a rest of Sabbath

7 ram skins dyed red, badger skins, and acacia wood;
8 oil for the light, and spices for the anointing oil and for the spiced incense;
9 onyx stones, and stones to be set in the ephod and in the breastplate.

17 the hangings of the court, its pillars, their sockets, and the screen for the gate of the
18 the pegs of the tabernacle, the pegs of the court, and their cords;
19 the woven garments for service in the holy place; the holy garments for Aaron the
priest and the garments of his sons, to serve as priests.
20 And all the congregation of the children of Israel departed from the presence of
21 And everyone came whose heart was raised up, and everyone whose spirit was willing,
and they brought the offering of Jehovah for the work of the tent of meeting, for all its
service, and for the holy garments.
22 And they came, both men and women, everyone of a willing heart, and brought
bracelets and nose rings, rings and ornaments, all sorts of gold articles, everyone who made
an offering of gold unto Jehovah.
23 And everyone with whom was found violet, purple, and scarlet thread, fine linen, and
goats' hair, red skins of rams, and badger skins, brought them.
24 Everyone who offered an offering of silver or bronze brought the offering of Jehovah.

26 And all the women whose hearts were raised up with wisdom spun goats' hair.
27 And the leaders brought onyx stones, and the stones to be set in the ephod and in the

had commanded to be done.
30 And Moses said to the children of Israel, Behold, Jehovah has called by name Bezalel
the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah;
31 and He has filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom and understanding, in
knowledge and all manner of workmanship,
32 to devise designs, to work in gold and silver and bronze,
33 in cutting stones for setting, in carving wood, and to work in all manner of designed
34 And He has put in his heart to teach, in him and Aholiab the son of Ahisamach, of the
tribe of Dan.
