The LORD said to Moses,
"Tell the people of Israel that everyone who wants to may bring me an offering.
Here is a list of items you may accept on my behalf: gold, silver, and bronze;
blue, purple, and scarlet yarn; fine linen; goat hair for cloth;
tanned ram skins and fine goatskin leather; acacia wood;
olive oil for the lamps; spices for the anointing oil and the fragrant incense;
onyx stones, and other stones to be set in the ephod and the chestpiece.
"I want the people of Israel to build me a sacred residence where I can live among them.
You must make this Tabernacle and its furnishings exactly according to the plans I will show you.
