Lord wrote the terms of the c­ ovenant—­the Ten C
­ ommandments—­on
the stone tablets.
When Moses came down Mount Sinai carrying the two stone tablets inscribed with the terms of the covenant, he wasn’t aware that his face had
become radiant because he had spoken to the Lord. So when Aaron and
the people of Israel saw the radiance of Moses’ face, they were afraid to
come near him.
But Moses called out to them and asked Aaron and all the leaders of the
community to come over, and he talked with them. Then all the people
of Israel approached him, and Moses gave them all the instructions the
Lord had given him on Mount Sinai. When Moses finished speaking with
them, he covered his face with a veil. But whenever he went into the Tent
of Meeting to speak with the Lord, he would remove the veil until he
came out again. Then he would give the people whatever instructions the
Lord had given him, and the people of Israel would see the radiant glow
of his face. So he would put the veil over his face until he returned to speak
with the Lord.
Then Moses called together the whole community of Israel and told them,
“These are the instructions the Lord has commanded you to follow. You
have six days each week for your ordinary work, but the seventh day must
be a Sabbath day of complete rest, a holy day dedicated to the Lord. Anyone who works on that day must be put to death. You must not even light
a fire in any of your homes on the Sabbath.”
Then Moses said to the whole community of Israel, “This is what the Lord
has commanded: Take a sacred offering for the Lord. Let those with generous hearts present the following gifts to the Lord:
gold, silver, and bronze;
blue, purple, and scarlet thread;
fine linen and goat hair for cloth;
tanned ram skins and fine goatskin leather;
acacia wood;
olive oil for the lamps;
spices for the anointing oil and the fragrant incense;
onyx stones, and other gemstones to be set in the ephod and the
priest’s chestpiece.
“Come, all of you who are gifted craftsmen. Construct everything that
the Lord has commanded:
