31:1 And  ADONAI (יהוה) devar to Moshe, saying:

31:2 See, I have called by name *Bezaleel Ben Uri, the Ben Hur, of the tribe of Yehudah:

31:3 And I have filled him with the Ruach Elohim (אלהים), in chokmah, and in understanding, and in daat (knowledge), and in all manner of workmanship,

31:4 To devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass,

31:5 And in cutting of stones, to set [them], and in carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship.

31:6 And I, hinei, I have given with him *Oholiyav Ben Achisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts of all that are chakam hearted I have put chokmah, that they may make all that I have commanded thee;

31:7 The Ohel Moed (tent of meeting), and the Ark of the testimony, and the kapporet that [is] thereupon, and all the furniture of the Ohel,

31:8 And the table and his furniture, and the pure menorah with all his furniture, and the mizbeach Ketoret,

31:9 And the altar of Olah with all his furniture, and the laver and his foot,

31:10 And the Bigdei Haserad, and Bigdei HaKadosh for Aharon ha Kohen, ve et Bigdei Banav, to minister in the Kohen's office,

31:11 And the anointing oil, and sweet incense for the kadosh [place]: according to all that I have commanded you shall they do.

31:12 And ADONAI (יהוה) spoke to Moshe, saying:


Speak you also to the Benai Yisrael, saying:

Truly My Shabbat you shall keep: for it [is] a sign between Me and you throughout your generations; that [ye] may know that ANI ADONAI (יהוה) that who sanctify you.

31:14 You shall keep the Shabbat, therefore, for it is set apart to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people.

31:15 [Siddur]

שֵׁ֣שֶׁת יָמִים֮ יֵעָשֶׂ֣ה מְלָאכָה֒ וּבַיֹּ֣ום הַשְּׁבִיעִ֗י שַׁבַּ֧ת שַׁבָּתֹ֛ון קֹ֖דֶשׁ לַיהוָ֑ה כָּל־הָעֹשֶׂ֧ה מְלָאכָ֛ה בְּיֹ֥ום הַשַּׁבָּ֖ת מֹ֥ות יוּמָֽת׃

Sheshet yamim ye'aseh melachah uvayom hashevi'i, Shabbat shabbaton kodesh lAdonai kol-ha'oseh melachah beyom hashabbat mot yumat.

Six days may work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be a shabbat of complete rest, Set Apart to ADONAI; whoever does work on the shabbat day shall be put to death.

31:16 Wherefore the Benai Yisrael shall keep the Shabbat, to observe the Shabbat throughout their generations, [for] a perpetual Berit.

31:17 [Siddur]

It [is] a sign between Me and the Benai Yisrael forever:

for [in] six days ADONAI (יהוה) made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day He rested, and was refreshed.
