1 The LORD said to Moses,
2 "Tell the Israelites to choose something to give me as a special contribution. You must accept whatever contribution each person freely gives.
3 This is the kind of contribution you will accept from them: gold, silver, and bronze,
4 violet, purple, and bright red yarn, fine linen, goats' hair,
5 rams' skins dyed red, fine leather, acacia wood,
6 olive oil for the lamps, spices for the anointing oil and for the sweet-smelling incense,
7 onyx stones, and other precious stones to be set in the [chief priest's] ephod and his breastplate.
