35:21 Everyone 1 whose heart stirred him to action 2 and everyone whose spirit was willing 3 came and brought the offering for the Lord for the work of the tent of meeting, for all its service, and for the holy garments. 4 35:22 They came, men and women alike, 5 all who had willing hearts. They brought brooches, earrings, rings and ornaments, all kinds of gold jewelry, 6 and everyone came who waved 7 a wave offering of gold to the Lord.
1 tn Heb “man.”
2 tn The verb means “lift up, bear, carry.” Here the subject is “heart” or will, and so the expression describes one moved within to act.
4 tn Literally “the garments of holiness,” the genitive is the attributive genitive, marking out what type of garments these were.
5 tn The expression in Hebrew is “men on/after the women,” meaning men with women, to ensure that it was clear that the preceding verse did not mean only men. B. Jacob takes it further, saying that the men came after the women because the latter had taken the initiative (Exodus, 1017).
6 tn Heb “all gold utensils.”
7 tn The verb could be translated “offered,” but it is cognate with the following noun that is the wave offering. This sentence underscores the freewill nature of the offerings people made. The word “came” is supplied from v. 21 and v. 22.
