1Bezalel and Aholiab shall work exactly as the LORD has commanded, and so also shall every craftsman whom the LORD has made skilful and ingenious in these matters, to know how to execute every kind of work for the service of the sanctuary.'

Too many gifts.  Ex.36.2-7

2Moses summoned Bezalel, Aholiab, and every craftsman to whom the LORD had given skill and who was willing, to come forward and set to work. 3They received from Moses every contribution which the Israelites had brought for the work of the service of the sanctuary, but the people still brought freewill offerings morning after morning, 4so that the craftsmen at work on the sanctuary left what they were doing, every one of them, and came to Moses 5and said, 'The people are bringing much more than we need for doing the work which the LORD has commanded.' 6So Moses sent word round the camp that no man or woman should prepare anything more as a contribution for the sanctuary. So the people stopped bringing gifts; 7what was there already was more than enough for all the work they had to do.

The making of the Tabernacle.  Ex.36.8-38 - Ex.26.1-37

8Then all the craftsmen among the workers made the Tabernacle of ten hangings of finely woven linen, and violet, purple, and scarlet yarn, with cherubim worked on them, all made by a seamster. 9The length of each hanging was twenty-eight cubits and the breadth four cubits, all of the same size. 10They joined five of the hangings together, and similarly the other five. 11They made violet loops on the outer edge of the one set of hangings and they did the same for the outer edge of the other set of hangings. 12They made fifty loops for each hanging; they made also fifty loops for the end hanging in the second set, the loops being opposite each other. 13They made fifty gold fasteners, with which they joined the hangings one to another, and the Tabernacle became a single whole.

14They made hangings of goats' hair, eleven in all, to form a tent over the Tabernacle; 15each hanging was thirty cubits long and four cubits wide, all eleven of the same size. 16They joined five of the hangings together, and similarly the other six. 17They made fifty loops on the edge of the outer hanging in the first set and fifty loops on the joining edge of the second set, 18and fifty bronze fasteners to join up the tent and make it a single whole. 19They made for the tent a cover of tanned rams' skins and an outer covering of porpoise-hides.

20They made for the Tabernacle planks of acacia-wood as uprights, 21each plank ten cubits long and a cubit and a half wide, 22and two tenons for each plank joined to each other. They did the same for all the planks of the Tabernacle. 23They arranged the planks thus: twenty planks for the south side, facing southwards, 24with forty silver sockets under them, two sockets under each plank for its two tenons; 25and for the second or northern side of the Tabernacle twenty planks 26with forty silver sockets, two under each plank. 27They made six planks for the far end of the Tabernacle on the west. 28They made two planks for the corners of the Tabernacle at the far end; 29at the bottom they were alike, and at the top, both alike, they fitted into a single ring. They did the same for both of them at the two corners. 30There were eight planks with their silver sockets, sixteen sockets in all, two sockets under each plank.

31They made bars of acacia-wood: five for the planks on the one side of the Tabernacle, 32five bars for the planks on the second side of the Tabernacle, and five bars for the planks on the far end of the Tabernacle on the west. 33They made the middle bar to run along from end to end half-way up the frames. 34They overlaid the frames with gold, made rings of gold on them to hold the bars and plated the bars with gold.

35They made the Veil of finely woven linen and violet, purple, and scarlet yarn, with cherubim worked on it, all made by a seamster. 36And they made for it four posts of acacia-wood overlaid with gold, with gold hooks, and cast four silver sockets for them. 37For the entrance of the tent a screen of finely woven linen was made, embroidered with violet, purple, and scarlet, 38and five posts of acacia-wood with their hooks. They overlaid the tops of the posts and the bands round them with gold; the five sockets for them were of bronze.
