Exodus 35:1-35
1. MOSES GATHERED all the congregation of the Israelites together and said to them, These are the things which the Lord has commanded that you do:
2. Six days shall work be done, but the seventh day shall be to you a holy day, a Sabbath of rest to the Lord; whoever works [on that day] shall be put to death.
3. You shall kindle no fire in all your dwellings on the Sabbath day.
4. And Moses said to all the congregation of the Israelites, This is what the Lord commanded:
5. Take from among you an offering to the Lord. Whoever is of a willing and generous heart, let him bring the Lord's offering: gold, silver, and bronze;
6. Blue, purple, and scarlet [stuff], fine linen; goats' hair;
7. And rams' skins tanned red, and skins of dolphins or porpoises; and acacia wood;
8. And oil for the light; and spices for anointing oil and for fragrant incense;
9. And onyx stones and other stones to be set for the ephod and the breastplate.
10. And let every able and wisehearted man among you come and make all that the Lord has commanded:
11. The tabernacle, its tent and its covering, its hooks, its boards, its bars, its pillars, and its sockets or bases;
12. The ark and its poles, with the mercy seat, and the veil of the screen;
13. The table and its poles and all its utensils, and the showbread (the bread of the Presence);
14. The lampstand also for the light, and its utensils and its lamps, and the oil for the light;
15. And the incense altar and its poles, the anointing oil and the fragrant incense, the hanging or screen for the door at the entrance of the tabernacle;
16. The altar of burnt offering, with its bronze grating, its poles and all its utensils, the laver and its base;
17. The court's hangings, its pillars and their sockets or bases, and the hanging or screen for the gate of the court;
18. The pegs of the tabernacle and of the court, and their cords,
19. The finely wrought garments for ministering in the Holy Place, the holy garments for Aaron the [high] priest and for his sons to minister as priests.
20. Then all the congregation of the Israelites left Moses' presence.
21. And they came, each one whose heart stirred him up and whose spirit made him willing, and brought the Lord's offering to be used for the [new] Tent of Meeting, for all its service, and the holy garments.
22. They came, both men and women, all who were willinghearted, and brought brooches, earrings or nose rings, signet rings, and armlets or necklaces, all jewels of gold, everyone bringing an offering of gold to the Lord.
23. And everyone with whom was found blue or purple or scarlet [stuff], or fine linen, or goats' hair, or rams' skins made red [in tanning], or dolphin or porpoise skins brought them.
24. Everyone who could make an offering of silver or bronze brought it as the Lord's offering, and every man with whom was found any acacia wood for any work of the service brought it.
25. All the women who had ability and were wisehearted spun with their hands and brought what they had spun of blue and purple and scarlet [stuff] and fine linen;
26. And all the women who had ability and whose hearts stirred them up in wisdom spun the goats' hair.
27. The leaders brought onyx stones and stones to be set for the ephod and for the breastplate,
28. And spice, and oil for the light and for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense.
29. The Israelites brought a freewill offering to the Lord, all men and women whose hearts made them willing and moved them to bring anything for any of the work which the Lord had commanded by Moses to be done.
30. And Moses said to the Israelites, See, the Lord called by name Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah;
31. And He has filled him with the Spirit of God, with ability and wisdom, with intelligence and understanding, and with knowledge and all craftsmanship,
32. To devise artistic designs, to work in gold, silver, and bronze,
33. In cutting of stones for setting, and in carving of wood, for work in every skilled craft.
34. And God has put in Bezalel's heart that he may teach, both he and Aholiab son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan.
35. He has filled them with wisdom of heart and ability to do all manner of craftsmanship, of the engraver, of the skillful workman, of the embroiderer in blue, purple, and scarlet [stuff] and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of those who do or design any skilled work.

Exodus 36:1-38
1. BEZALEL AND Aholiab and every wisehearted man in whom the Lord has put wisdom and understanding to know how to do all the work for the service of the sanctuary shall work according to all that the Lord has commanded.
2. And Moses called Bezalel and Aholiab and every able and wisehearted man in whose mind the Lord had put wisdom and ability, everyone whose heart stirred him up to come to do the work;
3. And they received from Moses all the freewill offerings which the Israelites had brought for doing the work of the sanctuary, to prepare it for service. And they continued to bring him freewill offerings every morning.
4. And all the wise and able men who were doing the work on the sanctuary came, every man from the work he was doing,
5. And they said to Moses, The people bring much more than enough for doing the work which the Lord commanded to do.
6. So Moses commanded and it was proclaimed in all the camp, Let no man or woman do anything more for the sanctuary offering. So the people were restrained from bringing,
7. For the stuff they had was sufficient to do all the work and more.
8. And all the able and wisehearted men among them who did the work on the tabernacle made ten curtains of fine twined linen and blue, purple, and scarlet [stuff], with cherubim skillfully worked on them.
9. The length of each curtain was twenty-eight cubits and its breadth four cubits; all the curtains were one size.
10. [Bezalel] coupled five curtains one to another and the other five curtains he coupled one to another.
11. And he made loops of blue on the outer edge of the last curtain in the first set; this he did also on the inner edge of the first curtain in the second set.
12. Fifty loops he made in the one curtain and fifty loops in the edge of the curtain which was the second set; the loops were opposite one another.
13. And he made fifty clasps of gold and coupled the curtains together with the clasps so that the tabernacle became one unit.
14. And he made eleven curtains of goats' hair for a tent over the tabernacle.
15. The length of one curtain was thirty cubits and four cubits was the breadth; the eleven curtains were of equal size.
16. And he coupled five curtains by themselves and the other six curtains by themselves.
17. And he made fifty loops on the outmost edge of the curtain to be coupled and fifty loops he made on the inner edge of the second curtain to be coupled.
18. He made fifty clasps of bronze to couple the tent together into one whole.
19. He made a covering for the tent of rams' skins tanned red, and above it a covering of dolphin or porpoise skins.
20. He made boards of acacia wood for the upright framework of the tabernacle.
21. The length of a board was ten cubits and the breadth one cubit and a half.
22. Each board had two tenons (projections) to fit into a mortise to form a clutch; he did this for all the boards of the tabernacle.
23. And he made thus the boards [for frames] for the tabernacle: twenty boards for the south side,
24. And he made under the twenty boards forty sockets or bases of silver, two sockets under one board for its two tenons or hands, and two sockets under another board for its two tenons.
25. For the other side of the tabernacle, the north side, he made twenty boards
26. And their forty sockets or bases of silver, two sockets under [the end of] each board.
27. And for the rear or west side of the tabernacle he made six [frame] boards.
28. And two boards he made for each corner of the tabernacle in the rear.
29. They were separate below but linked together at the top with one ring; thus he made both of them in both corners.
30. There were eight boards with sixteen sockets or bases of silver, and under [the end of] each board two sockets.
31. He made bars of acacia wood, five for the [frame] boards of the one side of the tabernacle,
32. And five bars for the boards of its other side, and five bars for the boards at the rear or west side.
33. And he made the middle bar pass through halfway up the boards from one end to the other.
34. He overlaid the boards and the bars with gold and made their rings of gold as places for the bars.
35. And he made the veil of blue, purple, and scarlet [stuff] and fine twined linen, with cherubim skillfully worked. [Matt. 27:50, 51; Heb. 10:19-22.]
36. For [the veil] he made four pillars of acacia [wood] and overlaid them with gold; their hooks were of gold, and he cast for them four sockets or bases of silver.
37. And he made a screen for the tent door of blue, purple, and scarlet [stuff] and fine twined linen, embroidered,
38. And he made the five pillars of it with their hooks, and overlaid their ornamental tops and joinings with gold, but their five sockets were of bronze.

Psalms 22:1-8
1. To the Chief Musician; set to [the tune of] Aijeleth Hashshahar [the hind of the morning dawn]. A Psalm of David. MY GOD, my God, why have You forsaken me? Why are You so far from helping me, and from the words of my groaning? [Matt. 27:46.]
2. O my God, I cry in the daytime, but You answer not; and by night I am not silent or find no rest.
3. But You are holy, O You Who dwell in [the holy place where] the praises of Israel [are offered].
4. Our fathers trusted in You; they trusted (leaned on, relied on You, and were confident) and You delivered them.
5. They cried to You and were delivered; they trusted in, leaned on, and confidently relied on You, and were not ashamed or confounded or disappointed.
6. But I am a worm, and no man; I am the scorn of men, and despised by the people. [Matt. 27:39-44.]
7. All who see me laugh at me and mock me; they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying, [Matt. 27:43.]
8. He trusted and rolled himself on the Lord, that He would deliver him. Let Him deliver him, seeing that He delights in him! [Matt. 27:39, 43; Mark 15:29, 30; Luke 23:35.]

Proverbs 8:6-11
6. Hear, for I will speak excellent and princely things; and the opening of my lips shall be for right things.
7. For my mouth shall utter truth, and wrongdoing is detestable and loathsome to my lips.
8. All the words of my mouth are righteous (upright and in right standing with God); there is nothing contrary to truth or crooked in them.
9. They are all plain to him who understands [and opens his heart], and right to those who find knowledge [and live by it].
10. Receive my instruction in preference to [striving for] silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold,
11. For skillful and godly Wisdom is better than rubies or pearls, and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. [Job 28:15; Ps. 19:10; 119:127.]

Matthew 26:26-50
26. Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread and, praising God, gave thanks and asked Him to bless it to their use, and when He had broken it, He gave it to the disciples and said, Take, eat; this is My body.
27. And He took a cup, and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them, saying, Drink of it, all of you;
28. For this is My blood of the new covenant, which [ratifies the agreement and] is being poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. [Exod. 24:6-8.]
29. I say to you, I shall not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it with you new and of superior quality in My Father's kingdom.
30. And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.
31. Then Jesus said to them, You will all be offended and stumble and fall away because of Me this night [distrusting and deserting Me], for it is written, I will strike the Shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered. [Zech. 13:7.]
32. But after I am raised up [to life again], I will go ahead of you to Galilee.
33. Peter declared to Him, Though they all are offended and stumble and fall away because of You [and distrust and desert You], I will never do so.
34. Jesus said to him, Solemnly I declare to you, this very night, before a single rooster crows, you will deny and disown Me three times.
35. Peter said to Him, Even if I must die with You, I will not deny or disown You! And all the disciples said the same thing.
36. Then Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemane, and He told His disciples, Sit down here while I go over yonder and pray.
37. And taking with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, He began to show grief and distress of mind and was deeply depressed.
38. Then He said to them, My soul is very sad and deeply grieved, so that I am almost dying of sorrow. Stay here and keep awake and keep watch with Me.
39. And going a little farther, He threw Himself upon the ground on His face and prayed saying, My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will [not what I desire], but as You will and desire.
40. And He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and He said to Peter, What! Are you so utterly unable to stay awake and keep watch with Me for one hour?
41. All of you must keep awake (give strict attention, be cautious and active) and watch and pray, that you may not come into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
42. Again a second time He went away and prayed, My Father, if this cannot pass by unless I drink it, Your will be done.
43. And again He came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were weighed down with sleep.
44. So, leaving them again, He went away and prayed for the third time, using the same words.
45. Then He returned to the disciples and said to them, Are you still sleeping and taking your rest? Behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of especially wicked sinners [whose way or nature it is to act in opposition to God].
46. Get up, let us be going! See, My betrayer is at hand!
47. As He was still speaking, Judas, one of the Twelve [apostles], came up, and with him a great crowd with swords and clubs, from the chief priests and elders of the people.
48. Now the betrayer had given them a sign, saying, The One I shall kiss is the Man; seize Him.
49. And he came up to Jesus at once and said, Hail (greetings, good health to You, long life to You), Master! And he embraced Him and kissed Him with [pretended] warmth and devotion.
50. Jesus said to him, Friend, for what are you here? Then they came up and laid hands on Jesus and arrested Him.
