20So the whole community of Israel left Moses and returned to their tents.21All 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.22Both 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 .23All 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.24And 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.25All the women who were skilled in sewing and spinning prepared blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and fine linen cloth.26All the women who were willing used their skills to spin the goat hair into yarn.27The leaders brought onyx stones and the special gemstones to be set in the ephod and the priest’s chestpiece.28They also brought spices and olive oil for the light, the anointing oil, and the fragrant incense.29So 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 .
6Remember this—a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop.7You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.”8And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.
