Text Commentary side-by-side

Chs 35–40 : Israel obeys instructions, and God takes up residence with them.

Now that God has renewed the covenant broken in ch 32 , Moses exactly carries out all the details of chs 25–31 .

35.1–3 : The sabbath command,

which was the climax of God's instructions to Moses ( 31.12–17n. ), is the first thing Moses says to Israel, to restrict work on the tabernacle.

35.4–29 : The offering ( 25.1–9 ) and the skillful craftspeople ( 31.6 ).

This time women are explicitly included among those who contribute (vv. 22,29 ), and they also do the spinning (vv. 25–26 ). The jewelry and clothing given by the Egyptians ( 3.21–22n. ) are now used to obey rather than to break the covenant.

35.30–36.1 : The artisans

( 31.1–11 ). Bezalel and Oholiab are not only craftsmen and designers but also teachers (v. 34 ).
