The Tabernacle Offerings Presented

20 And all the congregation of the children of Israel departed from the presence of Moses. 21 Then everyone came (T)whose heart [b]was stirred, and everyone whose spirit was willing, and they (U)brought the Lord’s offering for the work of the tabernacle of meeting, for all its service, and for the holy garments. 22 They came, both men and women, as many as had a willing heart, and brought (V)earrings and nose rings, rings and necklaces, all (W)jewelry of gold, that is, every man who made an offering of gold to the Lord. 23 And (X)every man, with whom was found blue, purple, and scarlet thread, fine linen, and goats’ hair, red skins of rams, and [c]badger skins, brought them. 24 Everyone who offered an offering of silver or bronze brought the Lord’s offering. And everyone with whom was found acacia wood for any work of the service, brought it. 25 All the women who were (Y)gifted artisans spun yarn with their hands, and brought what they had spun, of blue, purple, and scarlet, and fine linen. 26 And all the women whose hearts [d]stirred with wisdom spun yarn of goats’ hair. 27 (Z)The rulers brought onyx stones, and the stones to be set in the ephod and in the breastplate, 28 and (AA)spices and oil for the light, for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense. 29 The children of Israel brought a (AB)freewill offering to the Lord, all the men and women whose hearts were willing to bring material for all kinds of work which the Lord, by the hand of Moses, had commanded to be done.
