44. Come and see: When all the craftsmen began their work, the very work they started was finished on its own. They started and it was finished on its own. From where do we know that? From the verse, "Thus was all the work of the Tabernacle of the Tent of Meeting finished" (Shemot 39:32), MEANING THAT IT WAS FINISHED ON ITS OWN.
45. In the same manner, "The heavens and the earth were finished" (Beresheet 2:1), MEANING THAT THEY WERE COMPLETED ON THEIR OWN. You may say IT IS WRITTEN, "And by the seventh day Elohim ended" (Ibid.), HENCE ELOHIM COMPLETED THEM, AND THEY DID NOT COMPLETE THEMSELVES. Assuredly this is so, for though the works were completed one by one, nevertheless, the world was not altogether complete before the arrival of the seventh day. For when the seventh day arrived, all the works were completed and the Holy One, blessed be He completed the universe. This is the meaning of "And by the seventh day Elohim ended His work, which He had done." AND BY THE SEVENTH DAY, all the work He had done was complete. Therefore "by the seventh day Elohim ended His work ."
46. When the Temple was built, all the work was done on its own. The craftsmen began and the work showed them, how it should be done. And it was traced and completed of its own accord. It was also written, "And the house, when it was built" (I Melachim 6:7), not 'when they built it,' but "when it was built, because it was built on its own." It is further written, "was built of stone made ready before it was brought there" (Ibid.) - "was built" and not 'they built it.' So all work, which is holy, is completed on its own accord.
47. "And Betzalel the son of Uri, the son of Chur..." (Shemot 38:22): we learned by this verse that the Holy Spirit proclaimed concerning this verse before the eyes of Yisrael, and said, "Betzalel the son of Uri, the son of Chur, of the tribe of Judah, did all that Hashem commanded Moses. And with him Aholiav, son of Achisamach." HE ASKS: What is the meaning of "And with him"? AND HE REPLIES: We learned that Aholiav did not do the work alone but with Betzalel he did what he did. This is the meaning of "with him" and not on his own. FOR BETZALEL IS RIGHT AND AHOLIAV IS LEFT. From here we learn that the left is always included in the right. Therefore it is written, "I have given with him Aholiav" (Shemot 31:6). The one is right and the other left. AND LEFT IS INCLUDED IN THE RIGHT.
48. "These are the accounts of the Tabernacle, the Tabernacle of the Testimony, as they were counted, according to the commandment of Moses ..." (Shemot 38:21). Rabbi Yesa said: Since all the wise men made the Tabernacle, there was need of counting all the works done in it. What is the reason? Each account, by being made, confirmed the work done, and it remained in place.
49. And all Yisrael, as at first they wanted to donate, so they wanted that account, MEANING THAT BY THEIR WISH THEY DREW THE MOCHIN OF THESE ACCOUNTING, and all the work prevailed by that wish. Therefore, there was need of accounting IN THE TABERNACLE, since through it the work is confirmed. It is therefore written, "These," NAMELY, "THESE ARE THE ACCOUNTS," and not 'And these', BECAUSE WHEREVER IT IS WRITTEN "THESE," WHATEVER WAS WRITTEN BEFORE IS ANNULLED, and that account annuls all the previous accounts in the world, prevails more than the rest, and the Tabernacle exists by that and not by another.
