1 The Sabbath. 4 The free gifts for the Tabernacle. 20 The readinesse of the people to offer. 30 Bezaleel and Aholiab are called to the worke.
Free gifts are offered.
And Moses gathered all the Congregation of the children of Israel together, and said vnto them; These are the wordes which the Lord hath commanded, that yee should doe them.
Sixe dayes shall worke be done, but on the seuenth day there shall be to you an holy day, a Sabbath of rest to the Lord: whosoeuer doeth worke therein, shall be put to death.2
Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations vpon the Sabbath day.
¶ And Moses spake vnto all the Congregation of the children of Israel, saying, This is the thing which the Lord commanded, saying,
Take ye from amongst you an offring vnto the Lord: Whosoeuer is of a willing heart, let him bring it, an offering of the Lord, gold, and siluer, and brasse,5
And blew, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linnen, and goats haire,
And rammes skinnes died red, & badgers skinnes, and Shittim wood,
And oyle for the light, and spices for anoynting oyle, and for the sweet incense:
And Onix stones, and stones to be set for the Ephod, and for the brestplate.
And euery wise hearted among you, shall come and make all that the Lord hath commanded:
The Tabernacle, his tent, and his couering, his taches, & his barres, his pillars, and his sockets:11
The Arke and the staues thereof, with the Mercy seat, and the Uaile of the couering:
The Table and his staues, and all his vessels, and the Shewbread,
The Candlesticke also for the light, and his furniture, and his lamps, with the oyle for the light,
And the incense Altar, and his staues, and the anoynting oyle, and the sweet incense, and the hanging for the doore, at the entring in of the Tabernacle:15
The Altar of burnt offering with his brasen grate, his staues, and all his vessels, the Lauer and his foot:16
The hangings of the Court, his pillars, and their sockets, and the hanging for the doore of the Court:
The pinnes of the Tabernacle, and the pinnes of the Court, and their coards:
Free gifts are offered.
The cloathes of seruice, to doe seruice in the holy place, the holy garments for Aaron the Priest, and the garments of his sonnes to minister in the Priests office.
¶ And all the Congregation of the children of Israel departed from the presence of Moses.
And they came euery one whose heart stirred him vp, and euery one whom his spirit made willing, and they brought the Lords offering to the worke of the Tabernacle of the Congregation, and for all his seruice, and for the holy garments.
And they came both men and women, as many as were willing hearted, and brought bracelets, and earerings, and rings, & tablets, all iewels of gold: and euery man that offered, offered an offering of gold vnto the Lord.
And euery man with whom was found blew, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linnen, and goates haire, and red skinnes of rammes, and badgers skinnes, brought them.
Euery one that did offer an offering of siluer and brasse, brought the Lords offering: and euery man with whom was found Shittim wood for any worke of the seruice, brought it.
And all the women that were wise hearted, did spin with their hands, and brought that which they had spun, both of blew, and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine linnen.
And all the women whose heart stirred them vp in wisedome, spunne goats haire.
And the rulers brought Onix stones, and stones to be set for the Ephod, and for the brestplate:
And spice, and oyle for the light, and for the anoynting oyle, and for the sweet incense.28
The children of Israel brought a willing offering vnto the Lord, euery man and woman, whose heart made them willing to bring for all maner of worke, which the Lord had commanded to be made by the hands of Moses.
¶ And Moses said vnto the children of Israel, See, the Lord hath called by name Bezaleel the sonne of Uri, the sonne of Hur, of the tribe of Iudah.30
And he hath filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisedome, in vnderstanding, and in knowledge, and in all maner of workemanship:
The people liberall.
And to deuise curious workes, to worke in gold, & in siluer, and in brasse,
And in the cutting of stones, to set them, and in caruing of wood, to make any maner of cunning worke.
And he hath put in his heart that he may teach, both he and Aholiab the sonne of Ahisamach of the tribe of Dan.
Them hath hee filled with wisedome of heart, to worke all manner of worke, of the ingrauer, and of the cunning workeman, and of the embroiderer, in blew, and in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linnen, and of the weauer, euen of them that doe any worke, and of those that deuise cunning worke.
View Wesley's Notes for Exodus Chapter 35
35:2 Six days shall work be done - Work for the tabernacle, but on the seventh day - You must not strike a stroke, no not at the tabernacle - work; the honour of the sabbath was above that of the sanctuary.
35:3 Ye shall kindle no fire - For any servile work, as that of smiths or plumbers. We do not find that ever this prohibition extended farther.
35:21 Every one whom his spirit made willing - What they did they did chearfully. They were willing; and it was not any external inducement that made them so, but their spirits. It was from a principle of love to God, and his service; a desire of his presence with them by his ordinances; gratitude for the great things he had done for them; and faith in his promises of what he would do further.
35:22 Tablets or Lockets.
35:30 The Lord hath called Bezaleel - And those whom God called by name to this service, he filled with the spirit of God, to qualify them for it. The work was extraordinary which Bezaleel was designed for, and therefore he was qualified in an extraordinary manner for it. Thus when the apostles were appointed to be master - builders in setting up the gospel - tabernacle, they were filled with the spirit of God in wisdom and understanding.
