And the LORD said unto Moses, Depart, and go up hence, thou and the
people which thou hast brought up out of the land of Egypt, unto the
land which I sware unto Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, Unto
thy seed will I give it:
And I will send an angel before thee; and I will drive out the
Canaanite, the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, the
Hivite, and the Jebusite:
Unto a land flowing with milk and honey: for I will not go up in the
midst of thee; for thou art a stiffnecked people: lest I consume thee
in the way.
And when the people heard these evil tidings, they mourned: and no
man did put on him his ornaments.
For the LORD had said unto Moses, Say unto the children of Israel, Ye
are a stiffnecked people: I will come up into the midst of thee in a
moment, and consume thee: therefore now put off thy ornaments from
thee, that I may know what to do unto thee.
And the children of Israel stripped themselves of their ornaments by
the mount Horeb.
And Moses took the tabernacle, and pitched it without the camp, afar
off from the camp, and called it the Tabernacle of the congregation.
And it came to pass, that every one which sought the LORD went out
unto the tabernacle of the congregation, which was without the camp.
And it came to pass, when Moses went out unto the tabernacle, that
all the people rose up, and stood every man at his tent door, and
looked after Moses, until he was gone into the tabernacle.
And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle, the cloudy
pillar descended, and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the
LORD talked with Moses.
And all the people saw the cloudy pillar stand at the tabernacle
door: and all the people rose up and worshipped, every man in his
And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto
his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his servant
Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the
And Moses said unto the LORD, See, thou sayest unto me, Bring up this
people: and thou hast not let me know whom thou wilt send with me.
Yet thou hast said, I know thee by name, and thou hast also found
grace in my sight.
Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew
me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy
sight: and consider that this nation is thy people.
And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee
And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up
For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found
grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall we
be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the
face of the earth.
And the LORD said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou
hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee
And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.
And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will
proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to
whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew
And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see
me, and live.
And the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt
stand upon a rock:
And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put
thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I
And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but
my face shall not be seen.
And the LORD said unto Moses, Hew thee two tables of stone like unto
the first: and I will write upon these tables the words that were in
the first tables, which thou brakest.
And be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning unto mount
Sinai, and present thyself there to me in the top of the mount.
And no man shall come up with thee, neither let any man be seen
throughout all the mount; neither let the flocks nor herds feed
before that mount.
And he hewed two tables of stone like unto the first; and Moses rose
up early in the morning, and went up unto mount Sinai, as the LORD
had commanded him, and took in his hand the two tables of stone.
And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and
proclaimed the name of the LORD.
And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD
God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness
Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and
sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the
iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's
children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.
And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and
And he said, If now I have found grace in thy sight, O Lord, let my
Lord, I pray thee, go among us; for it is a stiffnecked people; and
pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for thine inheritance.
And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I will
do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any
nation: and all the people among which thou art shall see the work of
the LORD: for it is a terrible thing that I will do with thee.
Observe thou that which I command thee this day: behold, I drive out
before thee the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the
Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite.
Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants
of the land whither thou goest, lest it be for a snare in the midst
But ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down
For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is
Jealous, is a jealous God:
Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they
go a whoring after their gods , and do sacrifice unto their gods, and
one call thee, and thou eat of his sacrifice;
And thou take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their daughters
go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring after
Thou shalt make thee no molten gods.
The feast of unleavened bread shalt thou keep. Seven days thou shalt
eat unleavened bread, as I commanded thee, in the time of the month
Abib: for in the month Abib thou camest out from Egypt.
All that openeth the matrix is mine; and every firstling among thy
cattle, whether ox or sheep, that is male.
But the firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a lamb: and if
thou redeem him not, then shalt thou break his neck. All the
firstborn of thy sons thou shalt redeem. And none shall appear before
Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt rest: in
earing time and in harvest thou shalt rest.
And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the firstfruits of
wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year's end.
Thrice in the year shall all your men children appear before the Lord
GOD, the God of Israel.
For I will cast out the nations before thee, and enlarge thy borders:
neither shall any man desire thy land, when thou shalt go up to
appear before the LORD thy God thrice in the year.
Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leaven; neither
shall the sacrifice of the feast of the passover be left unto the
The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring unto the
house of the LORD thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his
And the LORD said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for after the
tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel.
And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did
neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the
words of the covenant, the ten commandments.
And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the
two tables of testimony in Moses' hand, when he came down from the
mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he
talked with him.
And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the
skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him.
And Moses called unto them; and Aaron and all the rulers of the
congregation returned unto him: and Moses talked with them.
And afterward all the children of Israel came nigh: and he gave them
in commandment all that the LORD had spoken with him in mount Sinai.
And till Moses had done speaking with them, he put a vail on his face.
But when Moses went in before the LORD to speak with him, he took the
vail off, until he came out. And he came out, and spake unto the
children of Israel that which he was commanded.
And the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of
Moses' face shone: and Moses put the vail upon his face again, until
he went in to speak with him.
And Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel
together, and said unto them, These are the words which the LORD hath
commanded, that ye should do them.
Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to
you an holy day, a sabbath of rest to the LORD: whosoever doeth work
therein shall be put to death.
Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations upon the sabbath
And Moses spake unto all the congregation of the children of Israel,
saying, This is the thing which the LORD commanded, saying,
Take ye from among you an offering unto the LORD: whosoever is of a
willing heart, let him bring it, an offering of the LORD; gold, and
silver, and brass,
And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair,
And rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittim wood,
And oil for the light, and spices for anointing oil, and for the
And onyx stones, and stones to be set for the ephod, and for the
And every wise hearted among you shall come, and make all that the
LORD hath commanded;

boards, his bars, his pillars, and his sockets,
The ark, and the staves thereof, with the mercy seat, and the vail of
The table, and his staves, and all his vessels, and the shewbread,
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 of the
The altar of burnt offering, with his brasen grate, his staves, and
all his vessels, the laver and his foot,
The hangings of the court, his pillars, and their sockets, and the
hanging for the door of the court,
The pins of the tabernacle, and the pins of the court, and their
The cloths of service, to do service in the holy place, the holy
garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to
minister in the priest's office.
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 all the women whose heart stirred them up in wisdom spun goats'
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.
The children of Israel brought a willing offering unto the LORD,
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
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 of
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 in
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 Aholiab,
the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan.
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
Then wrought Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man, in
whom the LORD put wisdom and understanding to know how to work all
manner of work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all
that the LORD had commanded.
And Moses called Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man, in
whose heart the LORD had put wisdom, even every one whose heart
stirred him up to come unto the work to do it:
And they received of Moses all the offering, which the children of
Israel had brought for the work of the service of the sanctuary, to
make it withal. And they brought yet unto him free offerings every
And all the wise men, that wrought all the work of the sanctuary,
came every man from his work which they made;
And they spake unto Moses, saying, The people bring much more than
enough for the service of the work, which the LORD commanded to make.
And Moses gave commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed
throughout the camp, saying, Let neither man nor woman make any more
work for the offering of the sanctuary. So the people were restrained
For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it,
and too much.
And every wise hearted man among them that wrought the work of the
tabernacle made ten curtains of fine twined linen, and blue, and
purple, and scarlet: with cherubims of cunning work made he them.
The length of one curtain was twenty and eight cubits, and the
breadth of one curtain four cubits: the curtains were all of one
And he coupled the five curtains one unto another: and the other five

And he made loops of blue on the edge of one curtain from the
selvedge in the coupling: likewise he made in the uttermost side of
another curtain, in the coupling of the second.
Fifty loops made he in one curtain, and fifty loops made he in the
edge of the curtain which was in the coupling of the second: the
loops held one curtain to another.
And he made fifty taches of gold, and coupled the curtains one unto
another with the taches: so it became one tabernacle.
And he made curtains of goats' hair for the tent over the tabernacle:
eleven curtains he made them.
The length of one curtain was thirty cubits, and four cubits was the

two ends thereof.

And he made the ephod of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and
fine twined linen.
And they did beat the gold into thin plates, and cut it into wires,
to work it in the blue, and in the purple, and in the scarlet, and in
the fine linen, with cunning work.
They made shoulderpieces for it, to couple it together: by the two
edges was it coupled together.
And the curious girdle of his ephod, that was upon it, was of the

of the ephod underneath, toward the forepart of it, over against the
other coupling thereof, above the curious girdle of the ephod.
And they did bind the breastplate by his rings unto the rings of the
ephod with a lace of blue, that it might be above the curious girdle
of the ephod, and that the breastplate might not be loosed from the
ephod; as the LORD commanded Moses.
And he made the robe of the ephod of woven work, all of blue.
And there was an hole in the midst of the robe, as the hole of an
habergeon, with a band round about the hole, that it should not rend.
And they made upon the hems of the robe pomegranates of blue, and
purple, and scarlet, and twined linen.

of the tent of the congregation.
And thou shalt put therein the ark of the testimony, and cover the
ark with the vail.

the altar, and shalt put water therein.
And thou shalt set up the court round about, and hang up the hanging
at the court gate.

all that is therein, and shalt hallow it, and all the vessels
thereof: and it shall be holy.
And thou shalt anoint the altar of the burnt offering, and all his
vessels, and sanctify the altar: and it shall be an altar most holy.
And thou shalt anoint the laver and his foot, and sanctify it.
And thou shalt bring Aaron and his sons unto the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation, and wash them with water.

And thou shalt bring his sons, and clothe them with coats:
And thou shalt anoint them, as thou didst anoint their father, that
they may minister unto me in the priest's office: for their anointing
shall surely be an everlasting priesthood throughout their

covering of the tent above upon it; as the LORD commanded Moses.
And he took and put the testimony into the ark, and set the staves on
the ark, and put the mercy seat above upon the ark:

of the tabernacle northward, without the vail.
And he set the bread in order upon it before the LORD; as the LORD

And he put the candlestick in the tent of the congregation, over
against the table, on the side of the tabernacle southward.
And he lighted the lamps before the LORD; as the LORD commanded Moses.

children of Israel went onward in all their journeys:
But if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the

throughout all their journeys.
