PARASHAT: Shemot 35:1 - 38:20
AND Mosheh gathered את eth-all the assembly of the children of Yisra’el together, and said unto them, These are the words which YAHUAH has commanded, that ye should do them. 2 Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you a holy day, a Shabbat of rest to YAHUAH: whosoever does work therein shall be put to death. 3 Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations upon the Shabbat.
4 And Mosheh spoke unto all the assembly of the children of Yisra’el, saying, This is the thing which YAHUAH commanded, saying, 5 Take ye from among you an offering unto YAHUAH: whosoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it, את eth an offering of YAHUAH; gold, and silver, and brass, 6 And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair, 7 And rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittiym wood, 8 And oil for the light, and spices for anointing oil, and for the sweet incense, 9 And onyx stones, and stones to be set for the ephod, and for the breastplate. 10 And every wise hearted among you shall come, and make את eth all that YAHUAH has commanded; 11 את eth-The Tabernacle, את eth-his tent, and את eth-his covering, את eth-his taches, and את eth-his boards, את eth-his bars, את eth-his pillars, and את eth-his sockets, 12 את eth-The Ark, and את eth-the staves thereof, with את eth-the mercy seat, and את eth-the vail of the covering, 13 את eth-The table, and את eth-his staves, and את eth-all his vessels, and את eth-the showbread, 14 את eth-The menorah also for the light, and את eth-his furniture, and את eth-his lamps, with את eth-the oil for the light, 15 And את eth-the incense altar, and את eth-his staves, and את eth-the anointing oil, and את eth-the sweet incense, and את eth-the hanging for the door at the entering in of the Tabernacle, 16 את eth The altar of burnt offering, with את eth-his brasen grate, את eth-his staves, and את eth-all his vessels, את eth-the laver and את eth-his foot, 17 את eth The hangings of the court, his pillars, and their sockets, and the hanging for the door of the court, 18 The pins of the Tabernacle, and the pins of the court, and their cords, 19 The cloths of service, to do service in the holy place, the holy garments for Aharon the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest's office.
20 And all the assembly of the children of Yisra’el departed from the presence of Mosheh. 21 And they came, everyone whose heart stirred him up, and everyone whom his ruach made willing, and they brought YAHUAH’S offering to the work of the Tabernacle of the assembly, and for all his service, and for the holy garments. 22 And they came, both men and women, as many as were willing hearted, and brought bracelets, and earrings, and rings, and tablets, all jewels of gold: and every man that offered offered an offering of gold unto YAHUAH. 23 And every man, with whom was found blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair, and red skins of rams, and badgers' skins, brought them. 24 Everyone that did offer an offering of silver and brass brought את eth YAHUAH’S offering: and every man, with whom was found shittiym wood for any work of the service, brought it. 25 And all the women that were wise hearted did spin with their hands, and brought that which they had spun, both את eth-of blue, and את eth-of purple, and את eth-of scarlet, and את eth-of fine linen. 26 And all the women whose heart stirred them up in wisdom spun את eth-goats' hair. 27 And the rulers brought את eth onyx stones, and stones to be set, for the ephod, and for the breastplate; 28 And את eth-spice, and את eth-oil for the light, and for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense. 29 The children of Yisra’el brought a willing offering unto YAHUAH, every man and woman, whose heart made them willing to bring for all manner of work, which YAHUAH had commanded to be made by the hand of Mosheh.
30 And Mosheh said unto the children of Yisra’el, See, YAHUAH has called by name Betsal’el the son of Uriy, the son of Choriy, of the tribe of Yahudah; 31 And he has filled him with the RUACH ELOHIYM, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship; 32 And to devise curious works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass, 33 And in the cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of wood, to make any manner of cunning work. 34 And he has put in his heart that he may teach, both he, and Aholiy’av, the son of Achiycamak, of the tribe of Dan. 35 Them has he filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of work, of the engraver, and of the cunning workman, and of the embroiderer, in blue, and in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of them that do any work, and of those that devise cunning work.
THEN wrought Betsal’el and Aholiy’av, and every wise hearted man, in whom YAHUAH put wisdom and understanding to know how to work את eth-all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that YAHUAH had commanded. 2 And Mosheh called Betsal’el and Aholiy’av, and every wise hearted man, in whose heart YAHUAH had put wisdom, even everyone whose heart stirred him up to come unto the work to do it: 3 And they received of Mosheh את eth all the offering, which the children of Yisra’el had brought for the work of the service of the sanctuary, to make it withal. And they brought yet unto him free offerings every morning. 4 And all the wise men, that wrought את eth all the work of the sanctuary, came every man from his work which they made;
5 And they spoke unto Mosheh, saying, The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work, which YAHUAH commanded to make. 6 And Mosheh gave commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, Let neither man nor woman make anymore work for the offering of the sanctuary. So the people were restrained from bringing. 7 For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it, and too much.
8 And every wise hearted man among them that wrought the work את eth-of the Tabernacle made ten curtains of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet: with Keruviym of cunning work made he them. 9 The length of one curtain was twenty and eight cubits, and the breadth of one curtain four cubits: the curtains were all of one size. 10 And he coupled את eth-the five curtains one unto another: and the other five curtains he coupled one unto another. 11 And he made loops of blue on the edge of one curtain from the selvedge in the coupling: likewise he made in the uttermost side of another curtain, in the coupling of the second. 12 Fifty loops made he in one curtain, and fifty loops made he in the edge of the curtain which was in the coupling of the second: the loops held one curtain to another. 13 And he made fifty taches of gold, and coupled את eth-the curtains one unto another with the taches: so it became one tabernacle.
14 And he made curtains of goats' hair for the tent over the Tabernacle: eleven curtains he made them. 15 The length of one curtain was thirty cubits, and four cubits was the breadth of one curtain: the eleven curtains were of one size. 16 And he coupled את eth-the five curtains by themselves, and את eth-six curtains by themselves. 17 And he made fifty loops upon the uttermost edge of the curtain in the coupling, and fifty loops made he upon the edge of the curtain which couples the second. 18 And he made fifty taches of brass to couple את eth-the tent together, that it might be one. 19 And he made a covering for the tent of rams' skins dyed red, and a covering of badgers' skins above that.
20 And he made את eth-the boards for the Tabernacle of shittiym wood, standing up. 21 The length of a board was ten cubits, and the breadth of a board one cubit and a half. 22 One board had two tenons, equally distant one from another: thus did he make for all the boards of the Tabernacle. 23 And he made את eth-the boards for the Tabernacle; twenty boards for the south side southward: 24 And forty sockets of silver he made under the twenty boards; two sockets under one board for his two tenons, and two sockets under another board for his two tenons. 25 And for the other side of the Tabernacle, which is toward the north corner, he made twenty boards, 26 And their forty sockets of silver; two sockets under one board, and two sockets under another board. 27 And for the sides of the Tabernacle westward he made six boards. 28 And two boards made he for the corners of the Tabernacle in the two sides. 29 And they were coupled beneath, and coupled together at the head thereof, to one ring: thus he did to both of them in both the corners. 30 And there were eight boards; and their sockets were sixteen sockets of silver, under every board two sockets.
31 And he made bars of shittiym wood; five for the boards of the one side of the Tabernacle, 32 And five bars for the boards of the other side of the Tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the Tabernacle for the sides westward. 33 And he made את eth-the middle bar to shoot through the boards from the one end to the other. 34 And he overlaid את eth-the boards with gold, and made את eth-their rings of gold to be places for the bars, and overlaid את eth-the bars with gold.
35 And he made את eth-a vail of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen: with Keruviym made he it of cunning work. 36 And he made thereunto four pillars of shittiym wood, and overlaid them with gold: their hooks were of gold; and he cast for them four sockets of silver.
37 And he made a hanging for the Tabernacle door of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, of needlework; 38 And את eth-the five pillars of it with את eth-their hooks: and he overlaid their chapiters and their fillets with gold: but their five sockets were of brass.
AND Betsal’el made את eth-the Ark of shittiym wood: two cubits and a half was the length of it, and a cubit and a half the breadth of it, and a cubit and a half the height of it: 2 And he overlaid it with pure gold within and without, and made a crown of gold to it round about. 3 And he cast for it four rings of gold, to be set by the four corners of it; even two rings upon the one side of it, and two rings upon the other side of it. 4 And he made staves of shittiym wood, and overlaid them with gold. 5 And he put את eth-the staves into the rings by the sides of the Ark, to bear את eth-the Ark.

10 And he made את eth-the table of shittiym wood: two cubits was the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof: 11 And he overlaid it with pure gold, and made thereunto a crown of gold round about. 12 Also he made thereunto a border of a handbreadth round about; and made a crown of gold for the border thereof round about. 13 And he cast for it four rings of gold, and put את eth-the rings upon the four corners that were in the four feet thereof. 14 Over against the border were the rings, the places for the staves to bear את eth-the table. 15 And he made את eth-the staves of shittiym wood, and overlaid them with gold, to bear את eth-the table. 16 And he made את eth-the vessels which were upon the table, את eth-his dishes, and את eth-his spoons, and את eth his bowls, and את eth-his covers to cover withal, of pure gold.
17 And he made את eth-the menorah of pure gold: of beaten work made he את eth-the menorah; his shaft, and his branch, his bowls, his knops, and his flowers, were of the same: 18 And six branches going out of the sides thereof; three branches of the menorah out of the one side thereof, and three branches of the menorah out of the other side thereof: 19 Three bowls made after the fashion of almonds in one branch, a knop and a flower; and three bowls made like almonds in another branch, a knop and a flower: so throughout the six branches going out of the menorah. 20 And in the menorah were four bowls made like almonds, his knops, and his flowers: 21 And a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same, according to the six branches going out of it. 22 Their knops and their branches were of the same: all of it was one beaten work of pure gold. 23 And he made את eth-his seven lamps, and his snuffers, and his snuffdishes, of pure gold. 24 Of a talent of pure gold made he it, and את eth all the vessels thereof.

29 And he made את eth-the holy anointing oil, and את eth-the pure incense of sweet spices, according to the work of the apothecary.

HAFTARAH: Yechezq'el 45:16 - 46:18
All the people of the land shall give this oblation for the prince in Yisra’el. 17 And it shall be the prince's part to give burnt offerings, and meat offerings, and drink offerings, in the feasts, and in the New Moons, and in the Shabbathot, in all solemnities of the house of Yisra’el: he shall prepare את eth-the sin offering, and את eth-the meat offering, and את eth-the burnt offering, and את eth-the peace offerings, to make reconciliation for the house of Yisra’el. 18 Thus says ADONAI YAHUAH; In the first month, in the first day of the month, you shall take a young bullock without blemish, and cleanse את eth-the sanctuary: 19 And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering, and put it upon the posts of the house, and upon the four corners of the settle of the altar, and upon the posts of the gate of the inner court. 20 And so you shall do the seventh day of the month for everyone that errs, and for him that is simple: so shall ye reconcile את eth-the house. 21 In the first month, in the fourteenth day of the month, ye shall have the Pecach, a feast of seven days; matstsah shall be eaten. 22 And upon that day shall the prince prepare for himself and for all the people of the land a bullock for a sin offering. 23 And seven days of the feast he shall prepare a burnt offering to YAHUAH, seven bullocks and seven rams without blemish daily the seven days; and a kid of the goats daily for a sin offering. 24 And he shall prepare a meat offering of an ephah for a bullock, and an ephah for a ram, and a hin of oil for an ephah. 25 In the seventh month, in the fifteenth day of the month, shall he do the like in the feast of the seven days, according to the sin offering, according to the burnt offering, and according to the meat offering, and according to the oil.
THUS says ADONAI YAHUAH; The gate of the inner court that looks toward the east shall be shut the six working days; but on the Shabbat it shall be opened, and in the day of the New Moon it shall be opened. 2 And the prince shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate without, and shall stand by the post of the gate, and the priests shall prepare את eth-his burnt offering and את eth-his peace offerings, and he shall worship at the threshold of the gate: then he shall go forth; but the gate shall not be shut until the evening. 3 Likewise the people of the land shall worship at the door of this gate before YAHUAH in the Shabbathot and in the New Moons. 4 And the burnt offering that the prince shall offer unto YAHUAH in the Shabbat shall be six lambs without blemish, and a ram without blemish. 5 And the meat offering shall be an ephah for a ram, and the meat offering for the lambs as he shall be able to give, and a hin of oil to an ephah. 6 And in the day of the New Moon it shall be a young bullock without blemish, and six lambs, and a ram: they shall be without blemish. 7 And he shall prepare a meat offering, an ephah for a bullock, and an ephah for a ram, and for the lambs according as his hand shall attain unto, and a hin of oil to an ephah. 8 And when the prince shall enter, he shall go in by the way of the porch of that gate, and he shall go forth by the way thereof.
9 But when the people of the land shall come before YAHUAH in the solemn feasts, he that enters in by the way of the north gate to worship shall go out by the way of the south gate; and he that enters by the way of the south gate shall go forth by the way of the north gate: he shall not return by the way of the gate whereby he came in, but shall go forth over against it. 10 And the prince in the midst of them, when they go in, shall go in; and when they go forth, shall go forth. 11 And in the feasts and in the solemnities the meat offering shall be an ephah to a bullock, and an ephah to a ram, and to the lambs as he is able to give, and a hin of oil to an ephah. 12 Now when the prince shall prepare a voluntary burnt offering or peace offerings voluntarily unto YAHUAH, one shall then open him את eth-the gate that looks toward the east, and he shall prepare את eth-his burnt offering and את eth-his peace offerings, as he did on the Shabbat: then he shall go forth; and after his going forth one shall shut את eth-the gate. 13 You shall daily prepare a burnt offering unto YAHUAH of a lamb of the first year without blemish: you shall prepare it every morning. 14 And you shall prepare a meat offering for it every morning, the sixth part of an ephah, and the third part of a hin of oil, to temper את eth-with the fine flour; a meat offering continually by a perpetual ordinance unto YAHUAH. 15 Thus shall they prepare את eth-the lamb, and את eth-the meat offering, and את eth-the oil, every morning for a continual burnt offering.
16 Thus says ADONAI YAHUAH; If the prince give a gift unto any of his sons, the inheritance thereof shall be his sons'; it shall be their possession by inheritance. 17 But if he give a gift of his inheritance to one of his servants, then it shall be his to the year of liberty; after it shall return to the prince: but his inheritance shall be his sons' for them. 18 Moreover the prince shall not take of the people's inheritance by oppression, to thrust them out of their possession; but he shall give את eth-his sons inheritance out of his own possession: that my people be not scattered every man from his possession.
BESORAH: Marcus 6:14-29
And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:) and he said, That Yahuchanon the Immerser was risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do show forth themselves in him. 15 Others said, That it is Eliyahu. And others said, That it is a prophet, or as one of the prophets. 16 But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is Yahuchanon, whom I beheaded: he is risen from the dead. 17 For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon Yahuchanon, and bound him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's woman: for he had married her. 18 For Yahuchanon had said unto Herod, It is not Lawful for you to have your brother's woman. 19 Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not: 20 For Herod feared Yahuchanon, knowing that he was a just man and a holy, and observed him; and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly. 21 And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates of Galiyl; 22 And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever you will, and I will give it to you. 23 And he swore unto her, Whatsoever you shall ask of me, I will give it to you, unto the half of my kingdom. 24 And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of Yahuchanon the Immerser. 25 And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will that you give me by and by in a charger the head of Yahuchanon the Immerser. 26 And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath's sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her. 27 And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison, 28 And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother. 29 And when his Talmidiym heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb.
