And all they that were about them strengthened their hands with vessels of silver, with gold, with goods, and with beasts, and with precious things, beside all that was willingly offered.
Strengthened their hands
and to bring the silver and gold, which the king and his counselors have freely offered to the God of Israel,
whose dwelling is in Jerusalem,
weighed out to them the silver, the gold and the utensils, the offering for the house of our God which the king and his counselors and his princes and all Israel present there had offered.
Every survivor, at whatever place he may
live, let the men of that place support him with silver and gold, with goods and cattle, together with a freewill offering for the house of God which is in Jerusalem.’”
Your people will volunteer freely in the day of Your power; In holy array, from the womb of the dawn, Your youth are to You as the dew.
2 Corinthians 9:7
Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not
grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
Everyone whose heart stirred him and everyone whose spirit moved him came and brought the Lord’s contribution for the work of the tent of meeting and for all its service and for the holy garments.
