This chapter is about Bezalel & Oholiab & the tabernacle. This one is pretty self-explanatory. You can check out more about this chapter in Exodus 31:1-11 & also in Exodus 26. I hope you enjoy. (Just a side note: I apologize to any one using Path. We’re having connectivity issues posting to Path. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience.)
Bezalel, Oholiab, & every skilled person who God gave the skill & ability to carry out the work of building the sanctuary to do the work, just as God said. Moses summoned Bezalel & Oholiab plus all of the workers (“skilled person”). Moses then gave them all of the offerings that the Israelites had brought to make the sanctuary/tabernacle.
The people continued to bring their offerings, of their own free will, all the time. They didn’t stop. The workers had to stop their work. They went to Moses & had to tell him to make the people stop bringing things. They had more than enough things for this particular building project.
Moses gave the order & word was sent throughout camp, they had to stop bringing their offerings. This wasn’t to be mean, because the Israelites were bringing these things willingly. They stopped because they had enough materials for the build.
All the workers got together & made all the things for the tabernacle. All the weavers & textile workers made all linens & yarns, the curtains, plus the cherubim that were on the textiles. The carpenters made all of the curtain rods, frames, crossbars, & all of the wood-based items for the tabernacle. The metal-workers made all of the rings, clasps, bases, lamps, stands, etc. for the tabernacle. The metal-workers also had all that gold & bronze to work with.
