Exodus 35

The chapter repeats some sections and phrases in Exodus 25. This feature of extensive repetition allows a reader and writer to correct their first impressions of a text when they meet it again (if one reads closely). At the same time, there is opportunity to consider new first impressions.

V 7 שטם read ַשׁטם

There are a number of verses in this chapter without rest, or mid-verse caesura. It's curious...
