Moses turned over to them all the contributions the Israelites had brought for the work of constructing the holy place. But the people still kept bringing him freewill offerings every morning.
Finally, all the skilled craftsmen who were working on the holy place stopped what they were doing. They all came to Moses.
They said, "The people are bringing much more than we need for doing the work the LORD commanded us to do."
So Moses gave instructions to have the following message announced all over camp: "No man or woman needs to make anything more to give as their special contribution to the holy place." Then the people stopped bringing gifts.
The material they had was more than enough to do the job.
