Bible study 85 – Exodus 35Posted: December 27, 2016
Of all the myriads of rules that God has given him, Moses tells exactly one of them to the Israelis once he gets down; to have a Sabbath every seventh day. This is also one of the few commandments that are present in in both the regular Ten Commandments and the Ritual Decalogue given in chapter 34; it thus seems like the most important of the rules.
He then asks everyone to bring offerings of metal and wood to build the tabernacle, but receives so many materials that he has to ask people stop bringing them. He describes the overall layout of the tabernacle, and repeats the names of the people that God assigned as chief artisans.
You shall kindle no fire in all your dwellings on the sabbath day.
