Exodus 25:1-9

Gifts offered for the dwelling

1 The LORD said to Moses:
2 Tell the Israelites to collect gift offerings for me. Receive my gift offerings from everyone who freely wants to give.
3 These are the gift offerings that you should receive from them: gold, silver, and copper;
4 blue, purple, and deep red yarns; fine linen; goats' hair;
5 rams' skins dyed red; beaded leather; acacia wood;
6 oil for the lamps; spices for the anointing oil and for the sweet-smelling incense;
7 gemstones; and gems for setting in the priest's vest and chest piece.
8 They should make me a sanctuary so I can be present among them.
9 You should follow the blueprints that I will show you for the dwelling and for all its equipment.
