And Yahweh spoke to Moses, Depart, go up, you and the people that you have brought up out of the land of Egypt, to the land of which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, To your seed will I give it: 2 and I will send an angel before you; and I will drive out the Canaanite, the Armorite, the Hittite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite: 3 to a land flowing with milk and honey: for I will not go up among you; for you are a stiffnecked people; lest I consume you along the way. 4 And when the people heard this evil word, they mourned: and no man put on his ornaments. 5 And Yahweh said to Moses, Say to the children of Israel, You are a stiffnecked people; if I went up among you for one moment, I would consume you: therefore now put off your ornaments from you, that I may know what to do to you. 6 And the children of Israel stripped themselves of their ornaments from mount Horeb onward.
7 Now Moses used to take the tent and to pitch it outside the camp, far from the camp; and he called it, The tent of meeting. And it came to pass, that every one that sought Yahweh went out to the tent of meeting, which was outside the camp. 8 And it came to pass, when Moses went out to the Tent, that all the people rose up, and stood, every man at his tent door, and looked after Moses, until he had gone into the Tent. 9 And when it came to pass, when Moses entered into the Tent, the pillar of cloud descended, and stood at the door of the Tent: and Yahweh spoke with Moses. 10 And all the people saw the pillar of cloud stand at the door of the Tent: and all the people rose up and worshiped, every man at his tent door. 11 And Yahweh spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. And he returned again to the camp: but his minister Yahshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the Tent.
12 And Moses said to Yahweh, See, you say to me, Bring up this people: and you have not let me know whom you will send with me. Yet you have said, I know you by name, and you have also found favor in my sight. 13 Now therefore, I pray you, if I have found favor in your sight, show me now your ways, that I may know you, to the end that I may find favor in your sight: and consider that this nation is your people. 14 And he said, My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest. 15 And he said to him, If your presence goes not with me, carry us not up from here. 16 For by what now shall it be known that I have found favor in your sight, I and your people? Is it not in that you go with us, so that we are separated, I and your people, from all the people that are on the face of the earth?
17 And Yahweh said to Moses, I will do this thing also that you have spoken; for you have found favor in my sight, and I know you by name. 18 And he said, Show me, I pray you, your glory. 19 And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before you, and will proclaim the name of Yahweh before you; and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy. 20 And he said, You can not see my face; for man shall not see me and live. 21 And Yahweh said, Behold, there is a place by me, and you shall stand on the rock: 22 and it shall come to pass, while my glory passes by, that I will put you in a cleft of the rock, and will cover you with my hand until I have passed by: 23 and I will take away my hand, and you shall see my back; but my face cannot be seen.
And Yahweh said to Moses, Hew for yourself two tables of stone like the first: and I will write on the tables the words that were on the first tables, which you broke. 2 And be ready by the morning, and come up in the morning to mount Sinai, and present yourself there to me on the top of the mount. 3 And no man shall come up with you; neither let any man be seen throughout all the mount; neither let the flocks nor herds feed before that mount. 4 And he hewed two tables of stone like the first; and Moses rose up early in the morning, and went up to mount Sinai, as Yahweh had commanded him, and took in his hand two tables of stone. 5 And Yahweh descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of Yahweh. 6 And Yahweh passed by before him, and proclaimed, Yahweh, Yahweh, an El merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abundant in goodness and truth; 7 keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving inquity and transgression and sin; and that will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, to the third and the fourth generation. 8 And Moses hurried, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshiped. 9 And he said, If now I have found favor in your sight, O Sovereign, let the king, I pray you, go among us; for it is a stiff-necked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for your inheritance.
10 And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all your people I will do marvels, such as have not been wrought in all the earth, or in any nation; and all the people among which you are shall see the work of Yahweh; for it is a terrible thing that I do with you. 11 Observe you that which I command you this day: behold, I drive out before you the Armorite, the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite. 12 Take heed to yourself, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you go, lest it be for a snare among you: 13 but you shall break down their altars, and dash in pieces their pillars,, and you shall cut down their Asherim; 14 for you shall worship no other El: for Yahweh, who is zealous for His Name is a jealous El: 15 lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they play the harlot after their elohim, and sacrifice to their elohim, and one calls you and you eat of his sacrifice; 16 and you take of their daughters to your sons, and their daughters play the harlot after their elohim, and make your sons play the harlot after their elohim. 17 You shall make you no molten elohim.
18 The feast of unleavened bread shall you keep. Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, as I commanded you, at the time appointed in the month Abib; for in the month Abib you came out from Egypt. 19 All that opens the womb is mine; and all your cattle that is male, the firstlings of cow and sheep. 20 And the firstling of an ass you shall redeem with a lamb: and if you will not redeem it, then you shall break its neck. All the first-born of your sons you shall redeem. And none shall appear before me empty.
21 Six days you shall work, but on the seventh day you shall rest: in plowing time and in harvest you shall rest. 22 And you shall observe the feast of weeks, even of the first-fruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year’s end. 23 Three times in the year shall all your males appear before the sovereign Yahweh, the Elohim of Israel. 24 For I will cast out nations before you, and enlarge your borders: neither shall any man desire your land, when you go up to appear before Yahweh your Elohim three times in the year.
25 You shall not offer the blood of any sacrifice with leavened bread; neither shall the sacrifice of the feast of the passover be left until the morning. 26 The first of the first-fruits of your ground you shall bring to the house of Yahweh your Elohim. You shall not boil a kid in its mother’s milk.
27 And Yahweh said to Moses, Write these words: for in accordance with these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel. 28 And he was there with Yahweh forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.
29 And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of the testimony in Moses’ hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses knew not that the skin of his face shone by reason of his speaking with him. 30 And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come near him. 31 And Moses called to them; and Aaron and all the rulers of the congregation returned to him: and Moses spoke to them. 32 And afterward all the children of Israel came near: and he gave them in commandment all that Yahweh had spoken with him in mount Sinai. 33 And when Moses had done speaking with them, he put a veil on his face. 34 But when Moses went in before Yahweh to speak with him, he took the veil off, until he came out; and he came out, and spoke to the children of Israel that which he was commanded. 35 And the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses’ face shone: and Moses put the veil on his face again, until he went in to speak with him.
And Moses assembled all the congregation of the children of Israel, and said to them, These are the words which Yahweh has commanded, that you should do them. 2 Six days shall work be done; but on the seventh day there shall be to you a holy day, a sabbath of solemn rest to Yahweh: whoever does any work in it shall be put to death. 3 You shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations on the sabbath day.
4 And Moses spoke to all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying, This is the thing which Yahweh commanded, saying, 5 Take from among you an offering to Yahweh; whoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it, Yahweh’s offering: gold, and silver, and bronze, 6 and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats’ hair. 7 and rams’ skins dyed red, and tahash skins, and acacia wood, 8 and oil for the light, and spices for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense, 9 and onyx stones, and stones to be set for the ephod, and for the breastplate.
10 And let every wise-hearted man among you come, and make all that Yahweh has commanded: 11 the tabernacle, its tent, its covering, its clasps, and its boards, its bars, its pillars, and its sockets; 12 the ark, and the poles of it, the mercy-seat, and the veil of the screen; 13 the table, and its poles, and all its vessels, and the showbread; 14 the candlestick also for the light, and its vessels, and its lamps, and the oil for the light; 15 and the altar of incense, and its poles, and the anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and the screen for the door, at the door of the tabernacle; 16 the altar of burnt-offering, with its grating of bronze, its poles, and all its vessels, the laver and its base; 17 the hangings of the court, the pillars of it, and their sockets, and the screen for the gate of the court; 18 the pins of the tabernacle, and the pins of the court, and their cords; 19 the finely wrought garments, for ministering in the holy place, the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest’s office.
20 And all the congregation of the children of Israel departed from the presence of Moses. 21 And they came, every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing, and brought Yahweh’s offering, for the work of the tent of meeting, and for all the service of it, and for the holy garments. 22 And they came, both men and women, as many as were willing-hearted, and brought brooches, and ear-rings, and signet-rings, and armlets, all jewels of gold; even every one that offered a wave offering of gold to Yahweh. 23 And every man, with whom was found blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats’ hair, and rams’ skins dyed red, and tahash skins, brought them. 24 Every one that offered an offering of silver and bronze brought Yahweh’s offering; and every man, with whom was found acacia wood for any work of the service, brought it. 25 And all the women that were wise-hearted spun with their hands, and brought that which they had spun, the blue, and the purple, the scarlet, and the fine linen. 26 And all the women whose heart stirred them up in wisdom spun the goats’ hair. 27 And the rulers brought the onyx stones, and the stones to be set, for the ephod, and for the breast-plate; 28 and the spice, and the oil: for the light, and for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense. 29 The children of Israel brought a freewill offering to Yahweh; every man and woman, whose heart made them willing to bring for all the work, which Yahweh had commanded to be made by Moses.
30 And Moses said to the children of Israel, See, Yahweh 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 Elohim, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship; 32 and to devise skilful works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in bronze, 33 and in cutting of stones for setting, and in carving of wood, to work in all manner of skilful workmanship. 34 And he has put in his heart that he may teach, both he, and Oholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. 35 Them has he filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of workman-ship, of the engraver, and of the skilful 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 workmanship, and of those that devise skilful works.
And Bezalel and Oholiab shall work, and every wise-hearted man, in whom Yahweh has put wisdom and understanding to know how to work all the work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that Yahweh has commanded.
2 And Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab, and every wise-hearted man, in whose heart Yahweh had put wisdom, even every one whose heart stirred him up to come to the work to do it: 3 and they received of Moses all the offering which the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the sanctuary, with which to make it. And they brought yet to him free-will offerings every morning. 4 And all the wise men, that wrought all the work of the sanctuary, came from the work which they wrought; 5 and they spoke to Moses, saying, The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work which Yahweh commanded to make. 6 And Moses gave commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, Let neither man nor woman make any more work for the offering of the sanctuary. So the people were restrained from bringing. 7 For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it, and too much.
8 And all the wise-hearted men among them that wrought the work made the tabernacle with ten curtains; of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, with cherubim, the work of the skilful workman, Bezalel made them. 9 The length of each curtain was eight and twenty cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits: all the curtains had one measure. 10 And he coupled five curtains one to another: and the other five curtains he coupled one to another. 11 And he made loops of blue on the edge of the one curtain from the edge in the coupling: likewise he made in the edge of the curtain that was outmost in the second coupling. 12 Fifty loops he made in the one curtain, and fifty loops he made in the edge of the curtain that was in the second coupling: the loops were opposite to one another. 13 And he made fifty clasps of gold, and coupled the curtains to one another with the clasps: so the tabernacle was one.
14 And he made curtains of goats’ hair for a tent over the tabernacle: eleven curtains he made them. 15 The length of each curtain was thirty cubits, and four cubits the width of each curtain: the eleven curtains had one measure. 16 And he coupled five curtains by themselves, and six curtains by themselves. 17 And he made fifty loops on the edge of the curtain that was outmost in the coupling, and fifty loops he made on the edge of the curtain which was outmost in the second coupling. 18 And he made fifty clasps of bronze to couple the tent together, that it might be one. 19 And he made a covering for the tent of rams’ skins dyed red, and a covering of tahash skins above.
20 And he made the boards for the tabernacle, of acacia wood, standing up. 21 Ten cubits was the length of a board, and a cubit and a half the width of each board. 22 Each board had two pins, joined one to another: thus did he make for all the boards of the tabernacle. 23 And he made the boards for the tabernacle: twenty boards for the south side southward; 24 and he made forty sockets of silver under the twenty boards; two sockets under one board for its two pins, and two sockets under another board for its two pins. 25 And for the second side of the tabernacle, on the north side, he made twenty boards, 26 and their forty sockets of silver; two sockets under one board, and two sockets under another board. 27 And for the hinder part of the tabernacle westward he made six boards. 28 And two boards he made for the corners of the tabernacle in the hinder part. 29 And they were double beneath; and in like manner they were entire to the top of it to one ring: thus he did to both of them in the two corners. 30 And there were eight boards, and their sockets of silver, sixteen sockets; under every board two sockets.
31 And he made bars of acacia wood; five for the boards of the one side of the tabernacle, 32 and five bars for the boards of the other side of the tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the tabernacle for the hinder part westward. 33 And he made the middle bar to pass through in the middle of the boards from the one end to the other. 34 And he overlaid the boards with gold, and made their rings of gold for places for the bars, and overlaid the bars with gold.
35 And he made the veil of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen: with cherubim, the work of the skilful workman, he made it. 36 And he made for it four pillars of acacia, and overlaid them with gold: their hooks were of gold; and he cast for them four sockets of silver. 37 And he made a screen for the door of the Tent, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, the work of the embroiderer; 38 and the five pillars of it with their hooks: and he overlaid their capitals and their bands with gold; and their five sockets were of bronze.
