Êxodo 31

1 And the Lord spake vnto Moses, saying,

2 See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah:

3 And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,

4 To finde out curious workes to worke in golde, and in siluer, and in brasse,

5 Also in the arte to set stones, & to carue in timber, & to worke in all maner of workmaship.

6 And I, behold, I have given with him Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts of all that are wise hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded thee;

7 That is, the Tabernacle of the Congregation, and the Arke of the Testimonie, & the Merciseate that shalbe therupon, with all instruments of the Tabernacle:

8 And the table and his furniture, and the pure candlestick with all his furniture, and the altar of incense,

9 Likewise the Altar of burnt offring with al his instruments, and the Lauer with his foote:

10 Also the garments of the ministration, & ye holy garments for Aaron ye Priest, & the garmets of his sonnes, to minister in the Priestes office,

11 And the anointing oil, and sweet incense for the holy [place]: according to all that I have commanded thee shall they do.

12 Afterwarde the Lord spake vnto Moses, saying,

13 Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it [is] a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that [ye] may know that I [am] the LORD that doth sanctify you.

14 Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it [is] holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth [any] work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

15 Sixe dayes shall men worke, but in the seuenth day is the Sabbath of the holy rest to the Lord: whosoeuer doeth any worke in the Sabbath day, shall dye the death.

16 Wherfore the children of Israel shal keepe the Sabbath, that they may obserue the rest throughout their generations for an euerlasting couenant.

17 It [is] a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for [in] six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.

18 And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.
