and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of
31:4 To devise curious 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, behold, I have given with him Aholiab the son of
Ahisamach of the tribe of Dan; and in the hearts of all that

I have commanded thee:
31:7 The tabernacle of the congregation, and the ark of the
testimony, and the mercy-seat that [is] upon it, and all the
furniture of the tabernacle,

you throughout your generations; that [ye] may know that I [am]
the LORD that doth sanctify you.
31:14 Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore: for it [is] holy to
you. Every one that profaneth it shall surely be put to death:
for whoever doeth [any] work therein, that soul shall be cut
off from among his people.
31:15 Six days may work be done, but in the seventh [is] the
sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whoever doeth [any] work in
the sabbath-day, he shall surely be put to death.
31:16 Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath,
to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, [for] a

ever: for [in] six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on
the seventh day he rested and was refreshed.
31:18 And to Moses, when he had made an end of communing with
him upon mount Sinai, he gave two tables of testimony, tables
of stone, written with the finger of God.
