Verses 1-35

Exodus 35:1

Religion is the recognition of all our duties as if they were Divine commandments.


References. XXXV. 21. A. Maclaren, Expositions of Holy Scripture Exodus, etc., p. 213.

Exodus 35:31

Religion devotes the artist, hand and mind, to the service of the gods; superstition makes him the slave of ecclesiastical pride, and forbids his work altogether, in terror or disdain.

Ruskin, On the Old Road (I.).

Exodus 35:34

The art which scorns all point of contact with morals, which denies all responsibility as a teacher, and knows no law but itself nay, which evokes from the artist no real self-restraint, no recognition of the consecrating power of his gift, is a sterile art which has missed its purpose.

Morris Joseph, The Ideal in Judaism, p. 180.
