 36:6
 36:7
36:6 Moses gave orders to make an announcement in the camp, 'Let no man or woman bring any more material for the sacred offering.'

The people stopped bringing,
Vayetsav Moshe vaya'aviru kol bamachaneh lemor ish ve'ishah al-ya'asu-od melachah litrumat hakodesh vayikale ha'am mehavi.

36:7 but the materials were more than enough for all the work that had to be done.
Vehamelachah hayetah dayam lechol-hamelachah la'asot otah vehoter.



Commentary:

any more material
  (Ramban). Literally, 'Let no man or woman do any more work.' This teaches that carrying is considered work (Yerushalmi, Shabbath 1:1; Chizzkuni).
