20 So everyone in the community of Israel left the presence of Moses. 20 Then the whole Israelite community withdrew from Moses' presence,
21 Then they came back, every one whose heart was roused, whose spirit was freely responsive, bringing offerings to God for building the Tent of Meeting, furnishing it for worship and making the holy vestments. 21 and everyone who was willing and whose heart moved him came and brought an offering to the LORD for the work on the Tent of Meeting, for all its service, and for the sacred garments.
22 They came, both men and women, all the willing spirits among them, offering brooches, earrings, rings, necklaces - anything made of gold - offering up their gold jewelry to God. 22 All who were willing, men and women alike, came and brought gold jewelry of all kinds: brooches, earrings, rings and ornaments. They all presented their gold as a wave offering to the LORD.

29 Every man and woman in Israel whose heart moved them freely to bring something for the work that God through Moses had commanded them to make, brought it, a voluntary offering for God. Bezalel and Oholiab 29 All the Israelite men and women who were willing brought to the LORD freewill offerings for all the work the LORD through Moses had commanded them to do.
30 Moses told the Israelites, "See, God has selected Bezalel son of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. 30 Then Moses said to the Israelites, "See, the LORD has chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah,
31 He's filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, ability, and know-how for making all sorts of things, 31 and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, ability and knowledge in all kinds of crafts--
32 to design and work in gold, silver, and bronze; 32 to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze,
33 to carve stones and set them; to carve wood, working in every kind of skilled craft. 33 to cut and set stones, to work in wood and to engage in all kinds of artistic craftsmanship.
34 And he's also made him a teacher, he and Oholiab son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. 34 And he has given both him and Oholiab son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, the ability to teach others.
35 He's gifted them with the know-how needed for carving, designing, weaving, and embroidering in blue, purple, and scarlet fabrics, and in fine linen. They can make anything and design anything. 35 He has filled them with skill to do all kinds of work as craftsmen, designers, embroiderers in blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen, and weavers--all of them master craftsmen and designers.
