The Lord said to Moses,
"Tell the Israelites to bring me gifts. Receive for me the gifts each person wants to give.
These are the gifts that you should receive from them: gold, silver, bronze;
blue, purple, and red thread; fine linen, goat hair,
sheepskins that are dyed red; fine leather; acacia wood;
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;
onyx stones, and other jewels to be put on the holy vest and the chest covering.
