And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,||
See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the
tribe of Judah:||
And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in
understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,||
To devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass,||
And in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to work
in all manner of workmanship.||
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 are wise hearted I have put
wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded thee;||
The tabernacle of the congregation, and the ark of the testimony, and the
mercy seat that is thereupon, and all the furniture of the tabernacle,||
And the table and his furniture, and the pure candlestick with all his
furniture, and the altar of incense,||
And the altar of burnt offering with all his furniture, and the laver and
Death to Sabbath breakers!
Is it necessary to keep the sabbath?
How should Sabbath-breakers be punished?
Does God approve of capital punishment?
What the Bible says about capital punishment
(31:13) "My sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations."
(31:14) " Ye shall keep the sabbath ... every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death."
(31:15) "Whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death."
(31:16) "The children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant."
"On the seventh day he rested"
God was tired after making heaven
and earth. So he had to take a day off to rest up.
Does God ever tire?
"He gave unto Moses ... upon mount Sinai, two ... tables of stone, written with the finger of God."
God wrote on the "tables of stone" with his finger on mount Sinai.
Where did Moses receive the ten commandments?
And the cloths of service, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and
the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest's office,
And the anointing oil, and sweet incense for the holy place: according to
all that I have commanded thee shall they do.
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye
shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye
may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you.
Ye shall keep the
sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it
shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be
cut off from among his people.
Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy
to the LORD: whosoever
doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.
Wherefore the children
of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their
generations, for a perpetual covenant.
It is a sign between
me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD
made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was
And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon
mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written
with the finger of God.
