The Lord said to Moses:
Tell the Israelites to take for me an offering; from all whose hearts prompt them to give you shall receive the offering for me.
This is the offering that you shall receive from them: gold, silver, and bronze,
blue, purple, and crimson yarns and fine linen, goats' hair,
tanned rams' skins, fine leather, a acacia wood,
oil for the lamps, spices for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense,
onyx stones and gems to be set in the ephod and for the breastpiece.
And have them make me a sanctuary, so that I may dwell among them.
In accordance with all that I show you concerning the pattern of the tabernacle and of all its furniture, so you shall make it.
