00:15 Hi, and welcome back to His Words Are Life.
00:18 I'm Kelly Mowrer, and thank you
00:20 for joining with me today
00:21 to read the Word of God.
00:22 Before we start, let's pray together.
00:24 Dear Jesus, thank you so much for bringing to us Your Word.
00:30 Down through the centuries and through all of the different
00:35 ages of human history, it's come to us
00:39 today to impact our lives and to teach us more of You
00:45 and to teach us how to serve each other better,
00:48 how to serve You better.
00:49 As we read today about events that happened thousands of years
00:54 ago, please send the Holy Spirit to give wisdom to our heart
00:58 and to teach us the lessons that these events carry
01:02 for each of us today. Remind us again of Your mercy
01:06 and keep Your Holy Spirit shining bright in our hearts
01:11 to guide us into more truth. We love You so much. Amen.
01:14 Reading in the book of Exodus about the building of the
01:18 sanctuary and all of the instructions and the patterns
01:21 that God was giving to Moses.
01:23 We are picking up in chapter 30. This is the King James version.
01:27 We are starting with verse 1.
01:28 And thou shalt make an altar to burn incense upon:
01:32 of shittim wood shalt thou make it.
01:34 A cubit shall be the length thereof,
01:36 and a cubit the breadth thereof; foursquare shall it be:
01:39 and two cubits shall be the height thereof:
01:42 the horns thereof shall be of the same.
01:44 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, the top thereof,
01:48 and the sides thereof round about, and the horns thereof:
01:51 and thou shalt make unto it a crown of gold round about.
01:54 And two golden rings shalt thou make to it under the crown
01:58 of it, by the two corners thereof, upon the two sides
02:01 of it shalt thou make it; and they shall be for places
02:05 for the staves to bear it withal.
02:07 And thou shalt make the staves of shittim wood,
02:09 and overlay them with gold. And thou shalt put it before
02:13 the veil that is by the ark of the testimony,
02:15 before the mercy seat that is over the testimony,
02:18 where I will meet with thee.
02:19 And Aaron shall burn thereon sweet incense every morning:
02:24 when he dresseth the lamps, he shall burn incense upon it.
02:27 And when Aaron lighteth the lamps at even,
02:30 he shall burn incense upon it, a perpetual incense
02:33 before the Lord throughout your generations.
02:36 You shall offer no strange incense thereon,
02:39 nor burnt sacrifice, nor meat offering;
02:41 neither shall ye pour drink offering thereon.
02:44 And Aaron shall make an atonement upon the horns of it
02:46 once in a year with the blood of the sin offering of atonements.
02:51 once in the year shall he make atonement upon it
02:53 throughout your generations:
02:55 it is most holy unto the Lord.
02:58 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
03:01 When thou takest the sum of the children of Israel
03:04 after their number, then shall they give every man a ransom
03:09 for his soul unto the Lord, when thou numberest them;
03:12 that there be no plague among them when thou numberest them.
03:15 This they shall give, every one that passeth among them
03:20 that are numbered, half a shekel after the shekel
03:22 of the sanctuary - a (shekel is twenty gerahs) -
03:26 and half a shekel shall be the offering of the Lord.
03:29 Every one that passeth among them that are numbered,
03:32 from twenty years old and above,
03:34 shall give an offering unto the Lord.
03:37 The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less
03:40 than half a shekel, when they give an offering unto the Lord,
03:43 to make an atonement for your souls.
03:45 And thou shalt take the atonement money of the
03:49 children of Israel, and shalt appoint it for the service
03:52 of the tabernacle of the congregation;
03:55 that it may be a memorial unto the children of Israel
03:57 before the Lord, to make an atonement for your souls.
04:01 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
04:04 Thou shalt also make a laver of brass, and his foot also of
04:07 brass, to wash withal: and thou shalt put it
04:09 between the tabernacle of the congregation and the altar,
04:12 and thou shalt put water therein. For Aaron and his sons
04:16 shall wash their hands and their feet thereat:
04:19 When they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they shall
04:21 wash with water, that they die not;
04:24 or when they come near to the altar to minister,
04:27 to burn offering made by fire unto the Lord:
04:29 So they shall wash their hands and their feet,
04:31 that they die not: and it shall be a statute for ever to them,
04:36 even to him and to his seed throughout their generations.
04:39 Moreover the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
04:43 Take thou also unto thee principal spices of pure myrrh
04:49 five hundred shekels, and of sweet cinnamon half so much,
04:52 even two hundred and fifty shekels,
04:54 and of sweet calamus two hundred and fifty shekels.
04:57 And of cassia five hundred shekels, after the shekel of the
05:01 sanctuary, and of olive oil a hin:
05:04 And thou shalt make an oil of holy ointment,
05:07 an ointment compound after the art of the apothecary:
05:11 it shall be a holy anointing oil.
05:14 And thou shalt anoint the tabernacle of the congregation
05:17 therewith, and the ark of the testimony,
05:20 And the table and all his vessels, and the candlestick
05:23 and his vessels, and the altar of incense,
05:25 And the altar of burnt offering with all his vessels,
05:28 and the laver and his foot.
05:31 And thou shalt sanctify them, that they may be most holy:
05:35 whatsoever touchest them shall be holy.
05:38 And thou shalt anoint Aaron and his sons, and consecrate them,
05:42 that they may minister unto Me in the priest's office.
05:45 And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying,
05:49 This shall be a holy anointing oil unto Me
05:52 throughout your generations.
05:55 Upon man's flesh shall it not be poured,
05:57 neither shall you make any other like it,
05:59 after the composition of it: it is holy,
06:02 and it shall be holy unto you.
06:04 Whosoever compoundeth any like it,
06:07 or whosever putteth any of it upon a stranger,
06:10 shall even be cut off from his people.
06:13 And the Lord said unto Moses, Take unto thee sweet spices,
06:17 stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; these sweet spices
06:22 with pure frankincense: of each shall there be a like weight:
06:26 And thou shalt make it a perfume, a confection after
06:29 the art of the apothecary, tempered together,
06:32 pure and holy: And thou shalt beat some of it very small,
06:36 and put of it before the testimony in the tabernacle
06:39 of the congregation, where I will meet with thee:
06:41 it shall be unto you most holy.
06:44 And as for the perfume which thou shalt make,
06:47 ye shall not make it to yourselves according to
06:50 the composition thereof: it shall be unto thee holy
06:54 for the Lord. Whosoever shall make like unto that,
06:58 to smell thereto, shall even be cut off from his people.
07:02 We are continuing in Exodus
07:05 in chapter 31, and this is the
07:06 King James version.
07:08 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
07:11 See, I have called by name Bezaleel, the son of Uri,
07:17 the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah:
07:19 And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom,
07:23 and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner
07:27 of workmanship, To devise cunning works,
07:30 to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass,
07:33 and in cutting of stones, to set them,
07:36 and in carving of timber, to work in all manner
07:38 of workmanship. And I, behold, I have given with him
07:44 Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan:
07:48 and in the hearts of all that are wise hearted,
07:50 I have put wisdom
07:52 that they may make all that I have commanded thee;
07:56 The tabernacle of the congregation, and the ark
07:59 of the testimony, and the mercy seat that is thereupon,
08:02 and all the furniture of the tabernacle.
08:04 And the table and his furniture, and the pure candlestick
08:07 with all his furniture, and the altar of incense,
08:09 And the altar of burn offering with all his furniture,
08:12 and the laver and his foot.
08:14 And the clothes of service, and the holy garments for Aaron
08:17 the priest, and the garments of his sons,
08:19 to minister in the priest's office,
08:21 And the anointing oil, and sweet incense for the holy place:
08:25 according to all that I have commanded thee shall they do.
08:28 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
08:31 Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying,
08:34 Verily My Sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign
08:39 between Me and you throughout your generations;
08:42 that ye may know that I am the Lord that doth sanctify you.
08:45 Ye shall keep the Sabbath there- fore; for it is holy unto you:
08:49 every one that defilith it shall surely be put to death:
08:52 for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be
08:56 cut off from among his people.
08:58 Six days may work be done;
09:01 but in the seventh is the Sabbath of rest,
09:04 holy to the Lord: whosoever doeth any work in the
09:07 Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.
09:09 Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath,
09:13 to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations,
09:16 for a perpetual covenant.
09:19 It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel for ever:
09:23 for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth,
09:26 and on the seventh day He rested, and was refreshed.
09:29 And He gave unto Moses, when He had made an end of communing
09:33 with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony,
09:37 tables of stone, written with the finger of God.
09:41 We are continuing to read in the book of Exodus
09:45 in chapter 32, and this is the King James version.
09:49 And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down
09:54 out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together
09:58 unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods,
10:01 which shall go before us; for as for this Moses,
10:05 the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt,
10:07 we wot not what is become of him.
10:10 And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings,
10:14 which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons,
10:16 and of your daughters, and bring them unto me.
10:18 And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were
10:21 in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.
10:23 And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it
10:26 with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf:
10:31 and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel,
10:35 which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
10:37 And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it;
10:41 and Aaron made proclamation, and said,
10:43 Tomorrow is a feast to the Lord.
10:47 And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered
10:50 burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings,
10:52 and the people sat down to eat and to drink,
10:54 and rose up to play.
10:56 And the Lord said unto Moses, Go, get thee down;
11:01 for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land
11:04 of Egypt, have corrupted themselves.
11:06 They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded
11:11 them: they have made them a molten calf,
11:13 and have worshiped it, and have sacrificed thereunto,
11:16 and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have
11:18 brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
11:21 And the Lord said unto Moses, I have seen this people,
11:25 and, behold, it is a stiff-necked people:
11:29 Now therefore let Me alone, that my wrath may wax hot
11:34 against them, that I may consume them:
11:36 and I will make of thee a great nation.
11:40 And Moses besought the Lord his God, and said,
11:45 Lord, why doth Thy wrath wax hot against Thy people,
11:50 which thou has brought forth out of the land of Egypt
11:53 with great power, and with a mighty hand?
11:55 Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say,
11:58 For mischief did He bring them out, to slay them in the
12:01 mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth?
12:03 Turn from Thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil
12:08 against Thy people.
12:09 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants,
12:13 to whom Thou swarest by thine own self and saidest unto them
12:16 I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven,
12:20 and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your
12:23 seed, and they shall inherit it for ever.
12:25 And the Lord repented of the evil which He thought to do
12:30 unto His people. And Moses turned, and went down
12:35 from the mount, and the two tables of the testimony
12:38 were in his hand:
12:39 the tables were written on both
12:41 their sides; on the one side
12:43 and on the other were they written.
12:44 And the tables were the work of God,
12:47 and the writing was the writing of God,
12:49 graven upon the tables. And when Joshua heard the noise
12:53 of the people as they shouted, he said unto Moses,
12:56 There is a noise of war in the camp.
12:58 And he said, It is not the voice of them that shout for mastery,
13:03 neither is it the voice of them that cry for being overcome:
13:06 but the noise of them that sing do I hear.
13:11 And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp,
13:14 that he saw the calf, and the dancing:
13:17 and Moses' anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables
13:21 out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount.
13:24 And he took the calf which they had made,
13:26 and burnt it in the fire, and ground it to powder,
13:29 and strewed it upon the water, and made the children of Israel
13:32 drink of it. And Moses said unto Aaron,
13:34 What did this people unto thee, that thou hast brought so great
13:38 a sin upon them? And Aaron said,
13:41 Let not the anger of my lord wax hot: thou knowest the people
13:45 that they are set on mischief.
13:46 For they said unto me, Make us gods,
13:49 which shall go before us: for as for this Moses,
13:51 the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt,
13:54 we wot not what is become of him.
13:56 And I said unto them, Whosoever hath any gold,
13:58 let them break it off. So they gave it me:
14:00 and I cast it into the fire, and there came out this calf.
14:04 And when Moses saw that the people were naked;
14:07 (for Aaron had made them naked unto their shame among
14:10 their enemies:) Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp,
14:13 and said, Who is on the Lord's side? let him come unto me.
14:18 And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together
14:22 unto him.
14:24 Thank you for joining with me today to read the Word of God.
14:28 Until we are together again, when the question is asked
14:31 "Who is on the Lord's side? " may every one of us
14:33 stand up immediately and say "Count me in. "
14:36 Thank you. Join me again next time. Goodbye.
