Every one that did offer an offering of silver and brass
brought the Lord's offering
Every one that had any quantity of either of these, whose heart was inclined freely to part therewith, brought it as a freewill offering to the Lord:
and every man with whom was shittim wood;
or acacia, a sort of wood which grew pretty plentifully in those parts; and such who had cut it down for some use or another, and were disposed to part with it
for any work of the service;
of which many things were to be made, whether they were trees they had felled, or planks and boards they had cut them into:
a sufficient quantity of it, for the various uses it was to be put unto.
