Bezaleel and Aholiab are called and made meet for the work of the Tabernacle.
Exodus 31:1 And the Lord spake vnto Moses, saying, Exodus 31:2 Behold, I haue called by name, Bezaleel the sonne of Vri, the sonne of Hur of the tribe of Iudah, Exodus 31:3 Whom I haue filled with the Spirit of God, in wisedome, and in vnderstanding and in knowledge and in all workmanship: Exodus 31:4 To finde out curious workes to worke in golde, and in siluer, and in brasse, Exodus 31:5 Also in the arte to set stones, & to carue in timber, & to worke in all maner of workmaship. Exodus 31:6 And behold, I haue ioyned with him Aholiab the sonne of Ahisamach of the tribe of Dan, & in the hearts of all that are wise hearted, haue I put wisdome to make all that I haue commanded thee: Exodus 31:7 That is, the Tabernacle of the Congregation, and the Arke of the Testimonie, & the Merciseate that shalbe therupon, with all instruments of the Tabernacle: Exodus 31:8 Also the Table & the instruments thereof, and the pure Candlesticke with all his instruments, and the Altar of perfume: Exodus 31:9 Likewise the Altar of burnt offring with al his instruments, and the Lauer with his foote: Exodus 31:10 Also the garments of the ministration, & ye holy garments for Aaron ye Priest, & the garmets of his sonnes, to minister in the Priestes office, Exodus 31:11 And the anoynting oyle, and sweete perfume for the Sanctuarie: according to all that I haue commanded thee, shal they do.
The observation of the Sabbath is again commanded.
Exodus 31:12 Afterwarde the Lord spake vnto Moses, saying, Exodus 31:13 Speake thou also vnto the children of Israel, and say, Notwithstanding keepe yee my Sabbaths: for it is a signe betweene me and you in your generations, that ye may know that I the Lord do sanctifie you. Exodus 31:14 Ye shall therefore keepe the Sabbath: for it is holy vnto you: he that defileth it, shal die the death: therefore whosoeuer worketh therin, the same person shalbe euen cut off from among his people. Exodus 31:15 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. Exodus 31:16 Wherfore the children of Israel shal keepe the Sabbath, that they may obserue the rest throughout their generations for an euerlasting couenant. Exodus 31:17 It is a signe betweene me and the children of Israel for euer: for in sixe dayes the Lorde made the heauen and the earth, & in the seuenth day he ceased, and rested.
