Exodus 35:4-10 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
4 Moses spoke to all the congregation of the sons of Israel, saying, “This is the thing which the Lord has commanded, saying, 5 ‘Take from among you a [a]contribution to the Lord; whoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it as the Lord’s [b]contribution: gold, silver, and [c]bronze, 6 and [d]blue, purple and scarlet material, fine linen, goats’ hair, 7 and rams’ skins [e]dyed red, and porpoise skins, and acacia wood, 8 and oil for lighting, and spices for the anointing oil, and for the fragrant incense, 9 and onyx stones and setting stones for the ephod and for the [f]breastpiece.
10 ‘Let every skillful man among you come, and make all that the Lord has commanded:
Exodus 35:20-35 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
20 Then all the congregation of the sons of Israel departed from Moses’ presence. 21 Everyone whose heart [a]stirred him and everyone whose spirit [b]moved him came and brought the Lord’s [c]contribution for the work of the tent of meeting and for all its service and for the holy garments. 22 Then all [d]whose hearts moved them, both men and women, came and brought brooches and [e]earrings and signet rings and bracelets, all articles of gold; so did every man who [f]presented an offering of gold to the Lord. 23 Every man, [g]who had in his possession [h]blue and purple and scarlet material and fine linen and goats’ hair and rams’ skins [i]dyed red and porpoise skins, brought them. 24 Everyone who could make a [j]contribution of silver and [k]bronze brought the Lord’s [l]contribution; and every man [m]who had in his possession acacia wood for any work of the service brought it. 25 All the [n]skilled women spun with their hands, and brought what they had spun, in [o]blue and purple and scarlet material and in fine linen. 26 All the women whose heart [p]stirred with a skill spun the goats’ hair. 27 The rulers brought the onyx stones and the stones for setting for the ephod and for the [q]breastpiece; 28 and the spice and the oil for the light and for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense. 29 The [r]Israelites, all the men and women, whose heart [s]moved them to bring material for all the work, which the Lord had commanded through Moses to be done, brought a freewill offering to the Lord.
30 Then Moses said to the sons of Israel, “See, the Lord has called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. 31 And He has filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding and in knowledge and in all [t]craftsmanship; 32 [u]to make designs for working in gold and in silver and in [v]bronze, 33 and in the cutting of stones for settings and in the carving of wood, so as to perform in every inventive work. 34 He also has put in his heart to teach, both he and Oholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. 35 He has filled them with [w]skill to perform every work of an engraver and of a designer and of an embroiderer, in [x]blue and in purple and in scarlet material, and in fine linen, and of a weaver, as performers of every work and makers of designs.
Exodus 36:2-7 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
2 Then Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab and every [a]skillful person in [b]whom the Lord had put [c]skill, everyone whose heart stirred him, to come to the work to perform it. 3 They received from Moses all the [d]contributions which the sons of Israel had brought [e]to perform the work [f]in the construction of the sanctuary. And they still continued bringing to him freewill offerings every morning. 4 And all the [g]skillful men who were performing all the work of the sanctuary came, each from [h]the work which [i]he was performing, 5 and they said to [j]Moses, “The people are bringing much more than enough for the [k]construction work which the Lord commanded us to [l]perform.” 6 So Moses issued a command, and a [m]proclamation was circulated throughout the camp, saying, “Let no man or woman any longer perform work for the [n]contributions of the sanctuary.” Thus the people were restrained from bringing any more. 7 For the [o]material they had was sufficient and more than enough for all the work, to perform it.
