1 The Lord said to Moses,
2 "Tell the Israelites to bring me gifts. Receive for me the gifts each person wants to give.
3 These are the gifts that you should receive from them: gold, silver, bronze;
4 blue, purple, and red thread; fine linen, goat hair,
5 sheepskins that are dyed red; fine leather; acacia wood;
6 olive oil to burn in the lamps; spices for sweet-smelling incense, and the special olive oil poured on a person's head to make him a priest;
7 onyx stones, and other jewels to be put on the holy vest and the chest covering.
