And they made a proclamation through Judah and Jerusalem
By heralds appointed for the purpose:
to bring in to the Lord;
into the house of the Lord, and for the reparation of it; and so for his service, honour, and glory:
the collection that Moses the servant of the Lord laid upon Israel in
not to bring in the tabernacle of Moses, as the Targum here and in ( 2 Chronicles 24:6 ) , but such a voluntary gift as Moses moved the children of Israel to bring, when in the wilderness, for the service of the tabernacle.
