The ark, and the staves thereof, with the mercy seat, and the
vail of the covering,
The table, and his staves, and all his vessels, and the
The candlestick also for the light, and his furniture, and his
lamps, with the oil for the light,
And the incense altar, and his staves, and the anointing oil,
and the sweet incense, and the hanging for the door at the entering in

And all the congregation of the children of Israel departed from
the presence of Moses.
And they came, every one whose heart stirred him up, and every
one whom his spirit made willing, and they brought the LORD's offering
to the work of the tabernacle of the congregation, and for all his
service, and for the holy garments.
And they came, both men and women, as many as were willing
hearted, and brought bracelets, and earrings, and rings, and tablets,
all jewels of gold: and every man that offered offered an offering of
gold unto the LORD.
And every man, with whom was found blue, and purple, and
scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair, and red skins of rams, and
badgers' skins, brought them.
Every one that did offer an offering of silver and brass brought
the LORD's offering: and every man, with whom was found shittim wood
for any work of the service, brought it.
And all the women that were wise hearted did spin with their
hands, and brought that which they had spun, both of blue, and of
purple, and of scarlet, and of fine linen.

And the rulers brought onyx stones, and stones to be set, for
the ephod, and for the breastplate;
And spice, and oil for the light, and for the anointing oil, and
for the sweet incense.

every man and woman, whose heart made them willing to bring for all
manner of work, which the LORD had commanded to be made by the hand of
And Moses said unto the children of Israel, See, the LORD hath
called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe
And he hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in
understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship;
And to devise curious works, to work in gold, and in silver, and
And in the cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of
wood, to make any manner of cunning work.
And he hath put in his heart that he may teach, both he, and

Them hath he filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of
work, of the engraver, and of the cunning workman, and of the
embroiderer, in blue, and in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen,
and of the weaver, even of them that do any work, and of those that
devise cunning work.
