Brenton Septuagint Translation
1And Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel together, and said, These are the words which the Lord has spoken for you to do them.
2Six days shalt thou perform works, but on the seventh day shall be rest—a holy sabbath—a rest for the Lord: every one that does work on it, let him die. 3Ye shall not burn a fire in any of your dwellings on the sabbath-day; I am the Lord.
Materials for the Tabernacle
4And Moses spoke to all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying, This is the thing which the Lord has appointed you, saying, 5Take of yourselves an offering for the Lord: every one that engages in his heart shall bring the first-fruits to the Lord; gold, silver, brass, 6blue, purple, double scarlet spun, and fine linen spun, and goats' hair, 7and rams' skins dyed red, and skins dyed blue, and incorruptible wood, 8and sardine stones, and stones for engraving for the shoulder-piece and full-length robe. 9And every man that is wise in heart among you, let him come and work all things whatsoever the Lord has commanded.
The Skilled Tabernacle Workmen
10The tabernacle, and the cords, and the coverings, and the rings, and the bars, and the posts, 11and the ark of the testimony, and its staves, and its propitiatory, and the veil, 12and the curtains of the court, and its posts, 13and the emerald stones, 14and the incense, and the anointing oil, 15and the table and all its furniture, 16and the candle-stick for the light and all its furniture, 17and the altar and all its furniture; 18and the holy garments of Aaron the priest, and the garments in which they shall do service; 19and the garments of priesthood for the sons of Aaron and the anointing oil, and the compound incense.
The People Offer Gifts
20And all the congregation of the children of Israel went out from Moses. And they brought, they whose heart prompted them, and they to whomsoever it seemed good in their mind, each and offering: 21and they brought an offering to the Lord for all the works of the tabernacle of witness, and all its services, and for all the robes of the sanctuary. 22And the men, even every one to whom it seemed good in his heart, brought from the women, even brought seals and ear-rings, and finger-rings, and necklaces, and bracelets, every article of gold. 23And all as many as brought ornaments of gold to the Lord, and with whomsoever fine linen was found; and they brought skins dyed blue, and rams' skins dyed red. 24And every one that offered an offering brought silver and brass, the offerings to the Lord; and they with whom was found incorruptible wood; and they brought offerings for all the works of the preparation. 25And every woman skilled in her heart to spin with her hands, brought spun articles, the blue, and purple, and scarlet and fine linen. 26And all the women to whom it seemed good in their heart in their wisdom, spun the goats' hair. 27And the rulers brought the emerald stones, and the stones for setting in the ephod, and the oracle, 28and the compounds both for the anointing oil, and the composition of the incense. 29And every man and woman whose mind inclined them to come in and do all the works as many as the Lord appointed them to do by Moses— they the children of Israel brought an offering to the Lord.
Bezelel and Oholiab
30And Moses said to the children of Israel, Behold, God has called by name Beseleel the son of Urias the son of Or, of the tribe of Juda, 31and has filled him with a divine spirit of wisdom and understanding, and knowledge of all things, 32to labour skillfully in all works of cunning workmanship, to form the gold and the silver and the brass, 33and to work in stone, and to fashion the wood, and to work in every work of wisdom. 34And God gave improvement in understanding both to him, and to Eliab the son of Achisamach of the tribe of Dan. 35And God filled them with wisdom, understanding and perception, to understand to work all the works of the sanctuary, and to weave the woven and embroidered work with scarlet and fine linen, to do all work of curious workmanship and embroidery.
