Offerings for the Sanctuary

25 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, (A)Tell the sons of Israel to take a [a]contribution for Me; (B)from everyone whose heart moves him you shall take My [b]contribution. This is the [c]contribution which you are to take from them: gold, silver, and bronze, [d](C)violet, purple, and scarlet material, fine linen, goat hair, rams’ skins dyed red, [e]fine leather, acacia wood, (D)oil for lighting, (E)balsam oil for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense, onyx stones and setting stones for the (F)ephod and for the [f](G)breastpiece. Have them (H)construct a sanctuary for Me, (I)so that I may dwell among them. (J)According to all that I am going to show you as the pattern of the tabernacle and the pattern of all its furniture, so you shall construct it.
