So the whole community of Israel left Moses and returned to their tents.
All whose hearts were stirred and whose spirits were moved came and brought their sacred offerings to the LORD . They brought all the materials needed for the Tabernacle, for the performance of its rituals, and for the sacred garments.
Both men and women came, all whose hearts were willing. They brought to the LORD their offerings of gold—brooches, earrings, rings from their fingers, and necklaces. They presented gold objects of every kind as a special offering to the LORD .
All those who owned the following items willingly brought them: blue, purple, and scarlet thread; fine linen and goat hair for cloth; and tanned ram skins and fine goatskin leather.
And all who had silver and bronze objects gave them as a sacred offering to the LORD . And those who had acacia wood brought it for use in the project.
All the women who were skilled in sewing and spinning prepared blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and fine linen cloth.
All the women who were willing used their skills to spin the goat hair into yarn.
The leaders brought onyx stones and the special gemstones to be set in the ephod and the priest’s chestpiece.
They also brought spices and olive oil for the light, the anointing oil, and the fragrant incense.
So the people of Israel—every man and woman who was eager to help in the work the LORD had given them through Moses—brought their gifts and gave them freely to the LORD .
