Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(27) The rulers brought onyx stones, and stones to be set.—The “rulers” here intended are probably the “princes of the tribes” of Israel (Numbers 1:16; Numbers 3:3; Numbers 3:5, &c.). The twelve stones required for the breastplate would naturally be contributed by the twelve chiefs of the tribes whose names they were to bear (Exodus 28:21). The two onyx stones for the ephod (Exodus 28:9-12), may have been the further gift of two of the number, who happened to possess stones of the large size needed.

Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary

35:20-29 Without a willing mind, costly offerings would be abhorred; with it, the smallest will be accepted. Our hearts are willing, when we cheerfully assist in promoting the cause of God. Those who are diligent and contented in employments considered mean, are as much accepted of God as those engaged in splendid services. The women who spun the goats' hair were wise-hearted, because they did it heartily to the Lord. Thus the labourer, mechanic, or servant who attends to his work in the faith and fear of God, may be as wise, for his place, as the most useful minister, and he equally accepted of the Lord. Our wisdom and duty consist in giving God the glory and use of our talents, be they many or few.

Barnes' Notes on the Bible

The precious stones Exodus 28:9and spices were contributed by the rulers, who were more wealthy than the other Israelites.

Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary

22. they came, both men and women, &c.—literally, "the men over and above the women"; a phraseology which implies that the women acted a prominent part, presented their offerings first, and then were followed by as many of their male companions as were similarly disposed.

brought bracelets, &c.—There was in that early age no money in the form of coins or bullion. What money passed current with the merchant consisted of rings which were weighed, and principally of ornaments for personal decoration. Astonishment at the abundance of their ornaments is at an end when we learn that costly and elegant ornaments abounded in proportion as clothing was simple and scarce among the Egyptians, and some, entirely divested of clothing, yet wore rich necklaces [Hengstenberg]. Among people with Oriental sentiments and tastes, scarcely any stronger proof could have been given of the power of religion than their willingness not only to lay aside, but to devote those much-valued trinkets to the house of God; and thus all, like the Eastern sages, laid the best they had at the service of God.

Matthew Poole's Commentary

No text from Poole on this verse.

Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible

And the rulers brought onyx stones, and stones to be set,.... Or "stones of fillings" (d), to be set in ouches, and fill them up, as stones set in rings do:

for the ephod, and for the breastplate; the onyx stones were for the shoulder pieces of the ephod; and the other stones were for the breastplate of judgment, and both to be borne by the high priest, for a memorial of the children of Israel before the Lord, whose names were engraven on these stones: the rulers are mentioned last, as bringing their offerings: the reason of which may not be, because they were backward to it, for they might offer earlier, though recorded last; or if they offered last, it might be because they brought things that others could not; namely, the precious stones here mentioned, and other things in the next verse, the common people had not; though some of the Jewish writers tax them with dilatoriness, and observe a letter wanting in the word for "rulers", it generally has; omitted to denote, as they think, that they were slow and backward in offering; so Jarchi notes from R. Nathan.

Pulpit Commentary

Verses 27, 28.- The rulersare, no doubt, the "elders" of Exodus 3:16; Exodus 4:29; Exodus 24:9, etc. Moses had made them "rulers," or rather, "princes" (sarey), according to the advice of Jethro (Exodus 18:25). They brought onyx stonesfor the ephod (Exodus 28:9-12) and stones to be set, - i.e., gems for the breastplate (ibid.17-20); oil of olive for the lamp (Exodus 27:20) and the holy ointment (Exodus 29:24), and spice for the same (ibid.23, 24) and for the incense (ibid.34).

Bridgeway Bible Commentary


35:1-40:38 CONSTRUCTION OF THE TABERNACLE

This section largely repeats the instruction given on the mountain in Chapters 25-31. It emphasizes that the people had to do God’s work according to his covenant requirements. Therefore, they were to keep the Sabbath (35:1-3; cf. 31:16). If they wanted God to accept their offerings for the building of the tabernacle, they had to present those offerings in a spirit of joy and willingness (35:4-29). Though all could give offerings, only those with the God-given ability and the right motivation were to do the work (35:30-36:1). The people responded so generously in bringing materials for the work, that Moses asked them to stop giving (36:2-7).
The workmen then started on the tabernacle, making the double layer of inner coverings and the double layer outer tent (36:8-19), the wooden framework, the pillars and the curtains (36:20-38), the ark and the mercy seat (37:1-9), and the table, lampstand and altar of incense (37:10-29). They also made the articles for the court area, namely, the altar of burnt offering (38:1-7), the laver (38:8) and the fence that surrounded the court (38:9-20). Then follows a list of the offerings (38:21-31) and an account of the priests’ clothing (39:1-31).
With much satisfaction and thanks, Moses inspected the completed, but as yet unassembled, parts of the tabernacle (39:32-43). He then supervised the erection of the entire complex, and dedicated the tabernacle and the priests as God had instructed him (40:1-33).
Exactly one year after leaving Egypt, or nine months after arriving at Sinai, the Israelites set up the newly made tabernacle (see 12:2; 19:1; 40:17). The cloud then rested on it as the visible evidence of God’s dwelling among his people as the centre of their life and the object of their worship. This same cloud guided them on their journey through the wilderness to Canaan. Whether they camped or travelled, Yahweh, their covenant Redeemer, was with them (40:34-38).

Coffman Commentaries on the Bible

"And Moses assembled all the congregation of the children of Israel, and said unto them, These are the words which Jehovah hath commanded, that ye should do them. Six days shall work be done; but on the seventh day there shall be to you a holy day, a sabbath of solemn rest to Jehovah: whosoever doeth any work therein shall be put to death. Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations upon the sabbath day.

"And Moses spake unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying, This is the thing which Jehovah commanded, saying, Take ye from among you an offering unto Jehovah; whoseover is of a willing heart, let him bring it, Jehovah's offering: gold, and silver, and brass, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair, and rams' skins dyed red, and sealskins, and acacia wood, and oil for the light, and spices for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense, and onyx stones to be set, for the ephod, and for the breastplate.

"And let every wise-hearted man among you come, and make all that Jehovah hath commanded: the tabernacle, its tent and its covering, its clasps, and its boards, its bars, its pillars, and its sockets; the ark, and the staves thereof, the mercy-seat, and the veil of the screen; the table, and its staves, and all its vessels, and the showbread; the candlestick also for the light, and its vessels, and its lamps, and the oil for the light; and the altar of incense, and its staves, and the anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and the screen for the door, at the door of the tabernacle; the altar of burnt-offering, with its grating of brass, its staves, and all its vessels, the laver and its base; the hangings of the court, the pillars thereof, and their sockets, and the screen for the gate of the court; the pins of the tabernacle, and the pins of the court, and their cords; the finely wrought garments, for ministering in the holy place, the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest's office.

"And all the congregation of the children of Israel departed from the presence of Moses. And they came, every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing, and brought Jehovah's offering, for the work of the tent of meeting, and for all the services thereof, and for the holy garments. And they came, both men and women, as many as were willing-hearted, and brought brooches, and ear-rings, and signet-rings, and armlets, all jewels of gold; even every man that offered an offering of gold unto Jehovah. And every man, with whom was found blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair, and rams' skins dyed red, and sealskins, brought them. Every one that did offer an offering of silver and brass brought Jehovah's offering; and every man, with whom was found acacia wood for any work of the service, brought it. And all the women that were wise-hearted did spin with their hands, and brought that which they had spun, the blue, and the purple, and the scarlet, and the fine linen.

"And all the women whose heart stirred them up in wisdom spun the goats' hair. And the rulers brought the onyx stones, and the stones to be set, for the ephod, and for the breastplate; and the spice, and the oil for the light, and for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense. The children of Israel brought a freewill-offering unto Jehovah; every man and woman, whose heart made them willing to bring for all the work, which Jehovah had commanded to be made by Moses.

"And Moses said unto the children of Israel, See, Jehovah hath called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah; and he hath filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship; and to devise skillful works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass, and in cutting of stones for setting, and in carving of wood, to work in all manner of skillful workmanship. And he hath put in his heart that he may teach, both he, and Oholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. Them hath he filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of workmanship, of the engraver, and of the skillful workman, and of the embroiderer, in blue, and in purple, and in scarlet, and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of them that do any workmanship, and of those that devise skillful works."

Chuck Smith Bible Commentary

And Moses gathered the congregation of the children of Israel together, and said unto them, These are the words which the LORD hath commanded, that you shall do them. Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you a holy day, a sabbath of rest to the LORD: whosoever does any work therein shall be put to death. Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitation on the sabbath day ( Exodus 35:1-3 ).

So one of the strongest parts of the tradition of the Jews today remains the Sabbath day, and as we mentioned a week ago or so that really was a neat law. It was made for man. Man wasn't made for the Sabbath; the Sabbath was made for man. This is just God's gift to you: the Sabbath day, a day in which you do nothing. A day in which you just kick back and rest. A day in which you just lie around all day long doing absolutely nothing, not even kindling a fire, just a day of total relaxation.

You would be so much healthier mentally and every way else if you would just take a day off and just cruise, just nothing; just totally relax. But we live in such a geared up society that I think I might be able to last until about eleven o'clock in the morning then I would be climbing the walls. But we need to learn to relax more. We need to learn to just kick back without feeling guilty about it. You have got one day out of seven that God just wants you to kick back and just totally relax and do nothing.

God has given it to you. It's God's gift to you. You can take it and enjoy it if you want. If you don't take it, it is not going to damn you or condemn you. That is the way they had misinterpreted the thing you see. If you dare do anything that violated that Sabbath day tradition, then they were ready to really wipe you out. But in reality it is just a gift of God for you; you would be much better off if you observed it. Not spiritually, it won't make you any more righteous than anybody else, but just physically you would be a lot better off, mentally better off.

Moses spake to all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying, This is the thing which the LORD commanded, saying, Take ye from among you an offering unto the LORD: and whosoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it, an offering of the LORD; gold, silver, and brass ( Exodus 35:4-5 ),

So now he has commanded to take an offering but there was one requirement; you could not give to God unless you did it with a willing heart. Now Paul the apostle in the New Testament tells us that, "when we give to God that it should never be by constraint, but as every man has purposed in his own heart so let him give for God loves a cheerful" literally a hilarious "giver" ( 2 Corinthians 9:7 ).

Now God doesn't want anything from you that you grudgingly give to Him of money, time, service. It is a tragic thing that the church has developed a program in which we pressure people into taking a job in the church. And so a person under pressure thinks, "oh, I've got to do it" you know. And they say, "oh no, this is Sunday. I've got to go face those monsters again in that Sunday school class. I can't stand it", you know. And you're griping and complaining about what you are doing for God. You would be better off not to do it at all. God doesn't want any griping servants.

You have signed up for a pledge and now you're short and you think "oh no" and you write out the check and you're begrudging the check because you pledged it, better not to give it. God doesn't want your giving to be by constraint, and yet churches create constraints upon giving. They create finance committees. They have their annual drive. They will come around and get your pledge and so forth and they will give a little pressure, you know.

The important people of the church are sitting there in your front room, as you now have to determine before them how much you are going to support the church this year. And man, you don't want to look like a cheapskate because these are important people, you know. And after all, he is the superintendent of schools and this guy is a lawyer and all, so you don't want to look like a cheapskate.

And it is deliberately designed that way so that you will feel pressured to give more than you really want to. That is giving by constraint. God doesn't want it. He doesn't want you to over subscribe. He wants you to purpose in your own heart what you want to give. Any giving to God must be willing giving on your part to really be a true gift unto God. Anything else, God hates. God would rather you keep it. There is one thing I can't stand and that's someone to do something for me and then gripe and complain that they've done it. I would rather that they not do it at all.

There's one guy that invited us over for dinner and passed the roast beef around the second time and I took seconds. Then he said, "Usually a roast lasts us all week, but this one's not going to make it." Man, I had a hard time swallowing that chunk of meat. If he didn't want me to take seconds, he shouldn't have passed the plate around a second time. I could respect him much more for that than to pass it around and then complain.

So people do something for God and then go around complaining about what they have done. Give to god and then complain about what they have given. No way. It always has to be of a willing heart. You have got to purpose in your own mind what you want to give. It is none of my business what you want to give. It is something between you and God; and you and a willing heart give to God whatever you are willing and wanting to give, but never out of constraint, never out of pressure.

That is why we have made it a purpose here at Calvary Chapel never to ask anybody to do anything. So if somebody comes up and they say, "Chuck, I would really love to teach a Sunday school class. How do you go about teaching a Sunday school class around here?" I say, "You just found out." You have got to ask. We won't come around and put a Sunday school teacher's book in your hand and say, "Now we really need you to teach this class." That is something that has to come from your own heart. What you do for God has to come out of a willing heart. That's the kind that God will reward. That's the kind of service that God will reward. That's the kind of giving that God will reward.

And so, that's the requirement God put even under the law "with a willing heart let him bring it, an offering to the LORD." You are not only to bring the gold, silver, and brass, but,

Blue, and purple, and scarlet fine linen, goats' hair, rams' skins dyed red, badgers' skins, and acacia wood, oil for the lights, spices for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense, onyx stones, stones to be set in the ephod, for the breast plate. And every wise hearted among you shall come, and make all that the LORD hath commanded; the tabernacle, his tent, his coverings, the taches, the boards, the bars, the pillars, the sockets, the ark, the staves, the mercy seat, the veil of covering, the table, and the staves, the vessels, the showbread, the candlesticks( Exodus 35:6-14 )

The furnishings, and so forth.

And so verse twenty-one,

And they came, everyone whose heart stirred him up and everyone whose spirit was made willing; and they brought the LORD'S offering to the work of the tabernacle of the congregation, and for all his service, and for all the holy garments. They came, both men and women, as many as were willing hearted, and brought the bracelets, earrings, rings, and the tablets, of jewels of gold: every man that offered [offered] an offering of gold unto the LORD ( Exodus 35:21-22 ).

And so, notice the giving. It was as a person's heart was stirred. And that is always the secret of true giving, as God stirs your heart, as God lays it upon your heart. And as you're willing to give so you should give unto God, but never, never by constraint, never by pressure, never by begging. It cheapens God to beg people to support Him.

The children of Israel brought the willing offering [verse twenty-nine] to the LORD, every man and every woman, whose heart was made willing to bring for all the manner of work, which the LORD had commanded by the hand of Moses. And Moses said to the children of Israel, See, the LORD has called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri; he has filled him with the spirit of God, wisdom, and understanding, and knowledge, and all manner of workmanship ( Exodus 35:29-31 );

So these talents and abilities given to him by God in craftsman to devise all of these fancy works, the work of gold and silver and brass, the cutting of the stones to set them, the carving of wood.

And he put it in his heart that he may teach, both he, and Aholiab. Them that he has filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of work, of the engraver, and the cunning workman, to do the embroidery, in blue, purple, and scarlet, and fine linen ( Exodus 35:34-35 ).

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And the rulers brought onyx stones, and stones to be set,.... Or "stones of fillings" d, to be set in ouches, and fill them up, as stones set in rings do:

for the ephod, and for the breastplate; the onyx stones were for the shoulder pieces of the ephod; and the other stones were for the breastplate of judgment, and both to be borne by the high priest, for a memorial of the children of Israel before the Lord, whose names were engraven on these stones: the rulers are mentioned last, as bringing their offerings: the reason of which may not be, because they were backward to it, for they might offer earlier, though recorded last; or if they offered last, it might be because they brought things that others could not; namely, the precious stones here mentioned, and other things in the next verse, the common people had not; though some of the Jewish writers tax them with dilatoriness, and observe a letter wanting in the word for "rulers", it generally has; omitted to denote, as they think, that they were slow and backward in offering; so Jarchi notes from R. Nathan.

Matthew Henry's Complete Commentary on the Bible

The Contributions for the Tabernacle. 1491.

      20 And all the congregation of the children of Israel departed from the presence of Moses.   21 And they came, every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing, and they brought the LORD's offering to the work of the tabernacle of the congregation, and for all his service, and for the holy garments.   22 And they came, both men and women, as many as were willing hearted, and brought bracelets, and earrings, and rings, and tablets, all jewels of gold: and every man that offered offered an offering of gold unto the LORD.   23 And every man, with whom was found blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair, and red skins of rams, and badgers' skins, brought them.   24 Every one that did offer an offering of silver and brass brought the LORD's offering: and every man, with whom was found shittim wood for any work of the service, brought it.   25 And all the women that were wise hearted did spin with their hands, and brought that which they had spun, both of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine linen.   26 And all the women whose heart stirred them up in wisdom spun goats' hair.   27 And the rulers brought onyx stones, and stones to be set, for the ephod, and for the breastplate;   28 And spice, and oil for the light, and for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense.   29 The children of Israel brought a willing offering unto the LORD, every man and woman, whose heart made them willing to bring for all manner of work, which the LORD had commanded to be made by the hand of Moses.

      Moses having made known to them the will of God, they went home and immediately put in practice what they had heard, Exodus 35:20; Exodus 35:20. O that every congregation would thus depart from the hearing of the word of God, with a full resolution to be doers of the same! Observe here,

      I. The offerings that were brought for the service of the tabernacle (Exodus 35:21; Exodus 35:21, c.), concerning which many things may be noted. 1. It is intimated that they brought their offerings immediately they departed to their tents immediately to fetch their offering, and did not desire time to consider of it, lest their zeal should be cooled by delays. What duty God convinces us of, and calls us to, we should set about speedily. No season will be more convenient than the present season. 2. It is said that their spirits made them willing (Exodus 35:21; Exodus 35:21), and their hearts,Exodus 35:29; Exodus 35:29. What they did they did cheerfully, and from a good principle. They were willing, and it was not any external inducement that made them so, but their spirits. It was from a principle of love to God and his service, a desire of his presence with them in his ordinances, gratitude for the great things he had done for them, faith in his promise of what he would further do (or, at least, from the present consideration of these things), that they were willing to offer. What we give and do for God is then acceptable when it comes from a good principle in the heart and spirit. 3. When it is said that as many as were willing-hearted brought their offerings (Exodus 35:22; Exodus 35:22), it should seem as if there were some who were not, who loved their gold better than their God, and would not part with it, no, not for the service of the tabernacle. Such there are, who will be called Israelites, and yet will not be moved by the equity of the thing, God's expectations from them, and the good examples of those about them, to part with any thing for the interests of God's kingdom: they are for the true religion, provided it be cheap and will cost them nothing. 4. The offerings were of divers kinds, according as they had; those that had gold and precious stones brought them, not thinking any thing too good and too rich to part with for the honour of God. Those that had not precious stones to bring brought goats' hair, and rams' skins. If we cannot do as much as others for God, we must not therefore sit still and do nothing: if the meaner offerings which are according to our ability gain us not such a reputation among men, yet they shall not fail of acceptance with God, who requires according to what a man hath, and not according to what he hath not,2 Corinthians 8:12; 2 Kings 5:23. Two mites from a pauper were more pleasing than so many talents from a Dives. God has an eye to the heart of the giver more than to the value of the gift. 5. Many of the things they offered were their ornaments, bracelets and rings, and tablets or lockets (Exodus 35:22; Exodus 35:22); and even the women parted with these. Can a maid forget her ornaments? Thus far they forgot them that they preferred the beautifying of the sanctuary before their own adorning. Let this teach us, in general, to part with that for God, when he calls for it, which is very dear to us, which we value, and value ourselves by; and particularly to lay aside our ornaments, and deny ourselves in them, when either they occasion offence to others or feed our own pride. If we think those gospel rules concerning our clothing too strict (1 Timothy 2:9; 1 Timothy 2:10; 1 Peter 3:3; 1 Peter 3:4), I fear we should scarcely have done as these Israelites did. If they thought their ornaments well bestowed upon the tabernacle, shall not we think the want of ornaments well made up by the graces of the Spirit? Proverbs 1:9. 6. These rich things that they offered, we may suppose, were mostly the spoils of the Egyptians; for the Israelites in Egypt were kept poor, till they borrowed at parting. And we may suppose the rulers had better things (Exodus 35:27; Exodus 35:27), because, having more influence among the Egyptians, they borrowed larger sums. Who would have thought that ever the wealth of Egypt should have been so well employed? but thus God has often made the earth to help the woman,Revelation 12:16. It was by a special providence and promise of God that the Israelites got all that spoil, and therefore it was highly fit that they should devote a part of it to the service of that God to whom they owed it all. Let every man give according as God hath prospered him,1 Corinthians 16:2. Extraordinary successes should be acknowledged by extraordinary offerings. Apply it to human learning, arts and sciences, which are borrowed, as it were, from the Egyptians. Those that are enriched with these must devote them to the service of God and his tabernacle: they may be used as helps to understand the scriptures, as ornaments or handmaids to divinity. But then great care must be taken that Egypt's gods mingle not with Egypt's gold. Moses, though learned in all the learning of the Egyptians, did not therefore pretend, in the least instance, to correct the pattern shown him in the mount. The furnishing of the tabernacle with the riches of Egypt was perhaps a good omen to the Gentiles, who, in the fulness of time, should be brought into the gospel tabernacle, and their silver and their gold with them (Isaiah 60:9), and it should be said, Blessed be Egypt my people,Isaiah 19:25. 7. We may suppose that the remembrance of the offerings made for the golden calf made them the more forward in these offerings. Those that had then parted with their ear-rings would not testify their repentance by giving the rest of their jewels to the service of God: godly sorrow worketh such a revenge, 2 Corinthians 7:11. And those that had kept themselves pure from that idolatry yet argued with themselves, "Were they so forward in contributing to an idol, and shall we be backward or sneaking in our offerings to the Lord?" Thus some good was brought even out of that evil.

      II. The work that was done for the service of the tabernacle (Exodus 35:25; Exodus 35:25): The women did spin with their hands. Some spun fine work, of blue and purple; others coarse work, of goats' hair, and yet theirs also is said to be done in wisdom, Exodus 35:26; Exodus 35:26. As it is not only rich gifts, so it is not only fine work that God accepts. Notice is here taken of the good women's work for God, as well as of Bezaleel's and Aholiab's. The meanest hand for the honour of God, shall have an honourable recompence. Mary's anointing of Christ's head shall be told for a memorial (Matthew 26:13); and a record is kept of the women that laboured in the gospel tabernacle (Philippians 4:3), and were helpers to Paul in Christ Jesus, Romans 16:3. It is part of the character of the virtuous woman that she layeth her hands to the spindle,Proverbs 31:19. This employment was here turned to a pious use, as it may be still (though we have no hangings to make for the tabernacle) by the imitation of the charity of Dorcas, who made coats and garments for poor widows, Acts 9:39. Even those that are not in a capacity to give in charity may yet work in charity; and thus the poor may relieve the poor, and those that have nothing but their limbs and senses may be very charitable in the labour of love.
