God spoke to Moses:
"Tell the Israelites that they are to set aside offerings for me. Receive the offerings from everyone who is willing to give.
These are the offerings I want you to receive from them: gold, silver, bronze;
blue, purple, and scarlet material; fine linen; goats' hair;
tanned rams' skins; dolphin skins; acacia wood;
lamp oil; spices for anointing oils and for fragrant incense;
onyx stones and other stones for setting in the Ephod and the Breastpiece.
