Exodus 35:20-29 “And all the assembly of the children of Israel departed from before Moses.21 And they came, every one whose heart moved him, and every one whose spirit prompted him; they brought Jehovah’s heave-offering for the work of the tent of meeting, and for all its service, and for the holy garments.22 And they came, both men and women; every one who was of willing heart brought nose-rings, and earrings, and rings, and bracelets, all kinds of utensils of gold: every man that waved a wave-offering of gold to Jehovah.23 And every man with whom was found blue, and purple, and scarlet, and byssus, and goats’ [hair], and rams’ skins dyed red, and badgers’ skins, brought [them].24 All they that offered a heave-offering of silver and copper brought Jehovah’s heave-offering. And every one with whom was found acacia-wood for all manner of work of the service, brought [it].25 And every woman that was wise-hearted spun with her hands, and brought what she had spun: the blue, and the purple, and the scarlet, and the byssus.26 And all the women whose heart moved them in wisdom spun goats’ [hair].27 And the principal men brought the onyx stones, and the stones to be set, for the ephod, and for the breastplate;28 and the spice, and the oil for the light, and for the anointing oil, and for the incense of fragrant drugs.29 The children of Israel brought a voluntary offering to Jehovah, every man and woman whose heart prompted them to bring for all manner of work, which Jehovah, by the hand of Moses, had commanded to be done.
