1 So Bezalel and Oholiab, and every skilled person, in whom the Lord has put skill and understanding to know how to do all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary, are to do the work according to all that the Lord has commanded.
2 Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab and every skilled person in whom the Lord had put wisdom, everyone whose heart stirred him to come to the work to do it. 3 They received from Moses all the offerings which the children of Israel had brought to do the work of the service of the sanctuary, and they continued to bring to him freewill offerings every morning. 4 And all the skilled men who were doing all the work of the sanctuary came from the work they were doing, 5 and they said to Moses, “The people are bringing much more than is needed for the service of the work which the Lord commanded us to do.”
6 So Moses issued a command, and they circulated a proclamation throughout the camp, saying, “Let no man or woman do any more work for the offering of the sanctuary.” So the people were restrained from bringing any more. 7 For the material they had was sufficient for all the work and more than enough to do it.
8 Every skilled man among those who were doing the work made the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twisted linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, with cherubim that were the work of skillful workmen. 9 The length of each curtain was twenty-eight cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits. All of the curtains were the same size. 10 He joined the five curtains to one another, and the other five curtains he joined to one to another. 11 He made loops of blue on the edge of the outermost curtain in the first set. He did likewise along the edge of the outermost curtain in the second set. 12 He made fifty loops in the one curtain and made fifty loops on the edge of the curtain which was in the second set. The loops were opposite one another. 13 He made fifty gold clasps and joined the curtains to one another with the clasps, so that the tabernacle was a unit.
14 He made curtains of goats’ hair for a tent over the tabernacle. He made eleven curtains in all. 15 The length of each curtain was thirty cubits, and the width of each curtain was four cubits. The eleven curtains were all the same size. 16 He joined five curtains by themselves and six curtains by themselves. 17 He made fifty loops on the outermost edge of the curtain in the first set, and he made fifty loops on the edge of the curtain which joined the second set. 18 He made fifty bronze clasps to join the tent together, so that it would be one unit. 19 He made a covering for the tent out of rams’ skins dyed red and a covering of porpoise skins above.
20 Then he made boards for the tabernacle out of acacia wood, standing upright. 21 The length of each board was ten cubits, and the width of each board was one and a half cubits. 22 Each board had two tenons, equally distant from each other. He did this for all the boards of the tabernacle. 23 He made boards for the tabernacle: twenty boards for the south side. 24 He made forty sockets of silver under the twenty boards; two sockets under one board for its two tenons and two sockets under another board for its two tenons. 25 For the other side of the tabernacle, which is toward the north corner, he made twenty boards, 26 and their forty sockets of silver: two sockets under one board, and two sockets under another board. 27 For the back of the tabernacle westward he made six boards. 28 He made two boards for the corners of the tabernacle at the back. 29 They were doubled beneath and joined together at the top in one ring. He did this with both of them in both the corners. 30 There were eight boards with their sockets of silver, sixteen sockets, two under every board.
31 He made bars of acacia wood, five for the boards of 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 back to the west. 33 He made the middle bar to pass through the boards from the one end to the other. 34 He overlaid the boards with gold, and made their rings of gold to be places for the bars, and overlaid the bars with gold.
35 He made a veil of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen. He made cherubim, the work of a skillful designer. 36 He made four pillars of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold with their hooks of gold, and he cast four sockets of silver for them. 37 He made a hanging for the tabernacle entrance of blue, purple, scarlet, and fine twisted linen, the work of an embroiderer. 38 And he made its five pillars with their hooks, and he overlaid their tops and their bands with gold, but their five sockets were of bronze.
1 Now Bezalel made the ark of acacia wood. Its length was two and a half cubits, and its width a cubit and a half, and its height a cubit and a half. 2 He overlaid it with pure gold, inside and out, and made a gold molding for it all around. 3 He cast four rings of gold for it on its four feet, with two rings on one side and two rings on the other side of it. 4 He made poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold. 5 He put the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark to carry the ark.
6 He made the mercy seat of pure gold, two and a half cubits long and one and a half cubits wide. 7 He made two cherubim of gold. He made them of hammered metal on the two ends of the mercy seat: 8 one cherub on one end, and one cherub on the other end. Of one piece with the mercy seat he made the cherubim on its two ends. 9 The cherubim spread out their wings upward, covering the mercy seat with their wings, with their faces toward each other. The faces of the cherubim were looking toward the mercy seat.
10 He made the table of acacia wood, two cubits long and a cubit wide and a cubit and a half high. 11 And he overlaid it with pure gold and made a gold molding for it all around. 12 Also he made a rim for it of a handbreadth all around, and he made a gold molding for the rim all around. 13 He cast four rings of gold for it and put the rings on the four corners that were on its four feet. 14 Close by the rim were the rings, the holders for the poles to carry the table. 15 He made the poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold, to carry the table. 16 He made the utensils which were on the table, its dishes and its pans and its bowls and its jars, to be used in pouring out offerings, of pure gold.
17 Then he made the lampstand of pure gold. He made it of hammered work, its base and its shaft. Its cups, its buds, and its blossoms were of the same piece. 18 Six branches were extending from its sides, three branches of the lampstand from one side of it, and three branches of the lampstand from the other side of it. 19 Three cups shaped like almond flowers, a bulb and a flower were on the first branch, and three cups shaped like almond flowers, a bulb and a flower were on the next branch, and the same for the six branches going out of the lampstand. 20 In the lampstand there were four cups made like almond flowers, its bulbs and its flowers. 21 And a bulb was under the first two branches from it, and a bulb under the next two branches from it, and a bulb under the third two branches from it, according to the six branches coming out of it. 22 Their bulbs and their branches were of the same piece. All of it was one hammered work of pure gold.
23 He made its seven lamps with its snuffers and its trays of pure gold. 24 He made it and all of its utensils from a talent of pure gold.
25 He made the incense altar of acacia wood. Its length was a cubit, and the width a cubit, a square, and two cubits high. Its horns were of the same piece. 26 He overlaid it with pure gold, its top, its sides all around, and its horns. He also made a gold molding for it all around. 27 He also made two rings of gold for it under its molding, on its two sides, on opposite sides, to be places for the poles to carry it. 28 He made the poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold.
29 He made the holy anointing oil and the pure incense of sweet spices, according to the work of a perfumer.
1 He made the altar of burnt offering of acacia wood. It was five cubits long and five cubits wide. It was square, and it was three cubits high. 2 He made its horns on its four corners. The horns were part of the same piece, and he overlaid it with bronze. 3 He made all the utensils of the altar, the pots, and the shovels, and the basins, the flesh hooks, and the fire pans. He made all its utensils of bronze. 4 He made for the altar a bronze grating, a network beneath, under its ledge, reaching halfway up. 5 He cast four rings for the four ends of the bronze grating to provide places for the poles. 6 He made the poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with bronze. 7 He put the poles into the rings on the sides of the altar with which to carry it. He made the altar hollow, out of boards.
8 He made the basin of bronze with its base of bronze from the mirrors of the women who served at the entrance of the tent of meeting.
9 He made the courtyard: On the south side southward the hangings of the courtyard were of fine twisted linen, one hundred cubits; 10 their twenty pillars and their twenty bases were of bronze. The hooks of the pillars and their bands were of silver. 11 For the north side the hangings were one hundred cubits; their twenty pillars and their twenty sockets were of bronze. The hooks of the pillars and their bands were of silver.
12 For the west side the hangings were fifty cubits with their ten pillars and their ten sockets. The hooks of the pillars and their bands were of silver. 13 For the east side eastward, fifty cubits. 14 The hangings of one side of the gate were fifteen cubits with their three pillars and their three sockets, 15 and also for the other side of the court gate. On both sides of the gate of the courtyard the hangings were fifteen cubits with their three pillars and their three sockets. 16 All the hangings of the courtyard all around were of fine twisted linen. 17 The sockets for the pillars were of bronze, the hooks of the pillars and their bands were of silver, and the overlaying of their tops of silver, and all the pillars of the courtyard were furnished with silver bands.
18 The screen for the gate of the courtyard was embroidered of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twisted linen. Its length was twenty cubits, and its height was five cubits, corresponding to the hangings of the courtyard. 19 Their four pillars and their four sockets were of bronze. Their hooks and their bands were of silver, and the overlaying of their tops and their bands were of silver. 20 All the tent pegs of the tabernacle and of the courtyard all around were bronze.
21 This is the inventory of the tabernacle, the tabernacle of testimony, as it was counted according to the commandment of Moses for the service of the Levites by the hand of Ithamar, son of Aaron the priest. 22 Bezalel, the son of Uri the son of Hur of the tribe of Judah, made all that the Lord commanded Moses. 23 With him was Oholiab the son of Ahisamak, of the tribe of Dan, an engraver and designer, an embroiderer in blue and purple and scarlet yarns, and fine linen. 24 All the gold that was used for the work, in all the work of the sanctuary, even the gold of the wave offering, was twenty-nine talents, and seven hundred and thirty shekels, according to the shekel of the sanctuary.
25 The silver of those who were numbered of the congregation was one hundred talents, and a thousand, seven hundred and seventy-five shekels, according to the shekel of the sanctuary; 26 a bekah for every man, that is, half a shekel, according to the shekel of the sanctuary, for everyone who was numbered, from twenty years old and upward, for six hundred and three thousand, five hundred and fifty men. 27 The hundred talents of silver were for casting the sockets of the sanctuary and the sockets of the veil—a hundred sockets of the hundred talents, a talent for a socket. 28 Of the one thousand seven hundred seventy-five shekels, he made hooks for the pillars and overlaid their tops and made bands for them.
29 The bronze of the wave offering was seventy talents and two thousand four hundred shekels. 30 With it he made the sockets for the door of the tent of meeting, and the bronze altar and its bronze grating, and all the utensils of the altar, 31 and the sockets of the courtyard all around, and the sockets of the courtyard gate, and all the tent pegs of the tabernacle, and all the tent pegs of the courtyard all around.
1 Then Jesus said to the crowds and to His disciples, 2 “The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. 3 Therefore, whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do their works. For they speak, but do nothing. 4 They fasten heavy loads that are hard to carry and lay them on men’s shoulders, but they themselves will not move them with their finger.
5 “They do all their works to be seen by men. They make their Scripture boxes broad and lengthen the tassels on their prayer shawls. 6 They love the places of honor at feasts, and the prominent seats in the synagogues, 7 and greetings in the marketplaces, and being called ‘Rabbi’ by men.
8 “But do not be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brothers. 9 And call no man on earth your father, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. 10 Nor be called teachers, for you have one Teacher, the Christ. 11 He who is greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 For he who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.
13 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven against men. For you neither enter yourselves, nor allow those who are entering to go in. 14 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You devour widows’ houses and for pretense make long prayers. Therefore you will receive the greater condemnation.
15 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You travel sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.
16 “Woe to you, blind guides, who say, ‘If anyone swears by the temple, it is nothing. But if anyone swears by the gold of the temple, he is obligated.’ 17 You blind fools! Which is greater, the gold or the temple that sanctifies the gold? 18 And you say, ‘If anyone swears by the altar, it is nothing. But if anyone swears by the gift on it, he is obligated.’ 19 You blind fools! Which is greater, the gift or the altar that sanctifies the gift? 20 Therefore he who swears by the altar, swears by it and by all things on it. 21 But he who swears by the temple, swears by it and by Him who dwells in it. 22 And he who swears by heaven, swears by the throne of God and by Him who sits on it.”
