The Lord spoke to Moses:
"Tell the Israelites to take an offering for Me. You are to take My offering from everyone whose heart stirs him [to give].
This is the offering you are to receive from them: gold, silver, and bronze;
blue, purple, and scarlet yarn; fine linen and goat hair;
ram skins dyed red and manatee skins;a acacia wood;
oil for the light; spices for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense;
and onyxb along with [other] gemstones for mounting on the ephod and breastpiece.c8
"They are to make a sanctuary for Me so that I may dwell among them.
You must make [it] according to all that I show you-the design of the tabernacle as well as the design of all its furnishings."
