Ki Tisa

 31:12  31:13
31:12 God told Moses
Vayomer Adonay el-Moshe lemor.
31:13 to speak to the Israelites and say to them:

You must still keep My sabbaths. It is a sign between Me and you for all generations, to make you realize that I, God, am making you holy.
Ve'atah daber el-beney Yisra'el lemor ach et-shabtotay tishmoru ki ot hi beyni uveyneychem ledoroteychem lada'at ki ani Adonay mekadishchem.

31:14 [Therefore] keep the Sabbath as something sacred to you. Anyone doing work [on the Sabbath] shall be cut off spiritually from his people, and therefore, anyone violating it shall be put to death.
Ushmartem et-haShabat ki kodesh hi lachem mechaleleyha mot yumat ki kol-ha'oseh vah melachah venichretah hanefesh hahi mikerev ameyha.


  Even while building the Tabernacle (Mekhilta; Rashi).
