38:29 The copper donated as a wave offering came out to 70 talents and 2400 shekels.

38:30 It was used to make the bases for the Communion Tent's entrance, the copper altar along with its copper screen and all the altar's utensils,
Vaya'as bah et-adeney petach Ohel Mo'ed ve'et mizbach hanechoshet ve'et-michbar hanechoshet asher-lo ve'et kol-keley hamizbe'ach.
38:31 the bases for the surrounding enclosure, the bases for the enclosure's entrance, the stakes for the tabernacle, and the stakes for the surrounding enclosure.
Ve'et-adeney hechatser saviv ve'et-adeney sha'ar hechatser ve'et kol-yitedot haMishkan ve'et-kol-yitedot hechatser saviv.



Commentary:

70 talents and 2400 shekels
  A total of 212,400 shekels or 10,620 pounds, around 1/3 shekel for each person counted. However, some say that the talent used to measure the copper was larger than that used to measure precious metals (Saadia).

bases
  There were 60 bases for the sixty poles for the enclosure, and another five for the drape at the tabernacle's entrance. Some say that each base weighed one talent (Chizzkuni).

and the stakes...
  Since the washstand is not mentioned, some say that the copper to make it was not included in this reckoning.
