 36:4
36:3 In Moses' presence, they took the entire donation that the Israelites had brought to complete the work on the sacred task.

Meanwhile, [the Israelites] were bringing more gifts each morning.
Vayikchu milifney Moshe et kol-haterumah asher hevi'u beney Yisra'el limelechet avodat hakodesh la'asot otah vehem hevi'u elav od nedavah baboker baboker.

36:4 All the craftsmen engaged in the sacred work [left] the work they were doing, and came [to Moses].
Vayavo'u kol-hachachamim ha'osim et kol-melechet hakodesh ish-ish mimelachto asher-hemah osim.
