Exodus 25:1-11
1
The LORD spoke to Moses:
2
"Tell the Israelites to take an offering for Me. You are to take My offering from everyone whose heart stirs him [to give].
3
This is the offering you are to receive from them: gold, silver, and bronze;
4
blue, purple, and scarlet yarn; fine linen and goat hair;
5
ram skins dyed red and manatee skins; acacia wood;
6
oil for the light; spices for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense;
7
and onyx along with [other] gemstones for mounting on the ephod and breastpiece.
8
"They are to make a sanctuary for Me so that I may dwell among them.
9
You must make [it] according to all that I show you-- the design of the tabernacle as well as the design of all its furnishings."
10
"They are to make an ark of acacia wood, 45 inches long, 27 inches wide, and 27 inches high.
11
Overlay it with pure gold; overlay it both inside and out. Also make a gold molding all around it.
Exodus 35:4-10
4
Then Moses said to the entire Israelite community, "This is what the LORD has commanded:
5
Take up an offering for the LORD among you. Let everyone whose heart is willing bring this as the LORD's offering: gold, silver, and bronze;
6
blue, purple, and scarlet yarn; fine linen and goat hair;
7
ram skins dyed red and manatee skins; acacia wood;
8
oil for the light; spices for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense;
9
and onyx with gemstones to mount on the ephod and breastpiece.
10
"Let all the skilled craftsmen among you come and make everything that the LORD has commanded:
Psalm 16:2
I said to the LORD, "You are my Lord; I have no good besides You."
Psalm 16:3
As for the holy people who are in the land, they are the noble ones in whom is all my delight.
Isaiah 42:1-7
1
"This is My Servant; I strengthen Him, [this is] My Chosen One; I delight in Him. I have put My Spirit on Him; He will bring justice to the nations.
2
He will not cry out or shout or make His voice heard in the streets.
3
He will not break a bruised reed, and He will not put out a smoldering wick; He will faithfully bring justice.
4
He will not grow weak or be discouraged until He has established justice on earth. The islands will wait for His instruction."
5
This is what God the LORD says-- who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and what comes from it, who gives breath to the people on it and life to those who walk on it--
6
"I, the LORD, have called you for a righteous [purpose], and I will hold you by your hand. I will keep you, and I make you a covenant for the people [and] a light to the nations,
7
in order to open blind eyes, to bring out prisoners from the dungeon, [and] those sitting in darkness from the prison house.
Isaiah 49:1-8
1
Coastlands, listen to me; distant peoples, pay attention. The LORD called me before I was born. He named me while I was in my mother's womb.
2
He made my words like a sharp sword; He hid me in the shadow of His hand. He made me like a sharpened arrow; He hid me in His quiver.
3
He said to me, "You are My servant, Israel; I will be glorified in him."
4
But I myself said: I have labored in vain, I have spent my strength for nothing and futility; yet my vindication is with the LORD, and my reward is with my God.
5
And now, says the LORD, who formed me from the womb to be His servant, to bring Jacob back to Him so that Israel might be gathered to Him; for I am honored in the sight of the LORD, and my God is my strength--
6
He says, "It is not enough for you to be My servant raising up the tribes of Jacob and restoring the protected ones of Israel. I will also make you a light for the nations, to be My salvation to the ends of the earth."
7
This is what the LORD, the Redeemer of Israel, his Holy One says to one who is despised, to one abhorred by people, to a servant of rulers: "Kings will see and stand up, and princes will bow down, because of the LORD, who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel-- and He has chosen you."
8
This is what the LORD says: I will answer you in a time of favor, and I will help you in the day of salvation. I will keep you, and I will appoint you to be a covenant for the people, to restore the land, to make them possess the desolate inheritances,
Ephesians 4:11-13
11
And He personally gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers,
12
for the training of the saints in the work of ministry, to build up the body of Christ,
13
until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of God's Son, [growing] into a mature man with a stature measured by Christ's fullness.
Titus 3:8
This saying is trustworthy. I want you to insist on these things, so that those who have believed God might be careful to devote themselves to good works. These are good and profitable for everyone.
