Chp. 35 verses 1 & 2: Introduction, Moshe gathers all the people on the day after he comes down from the mountain with the second set of tablets. This included the women, which was not the norm. He told them all the things that Hashem had commanded them to do. He begins with the Shabbos, since it is equal to all the commandments in the Torah. He tells them to work six days but the seventh day should be a holy to them and a solemn day of rest to Hashem. Whoever would desecrate the day with any work would be put to death.
