Now this was their number: 30 gold dishes, 1,000 silver dishes, 29 duplicates;
Thus I weighed into their hands 650 talents of silver, and silver utensils worth 100 talents, and 100 gold talents,
Then I said to them, "You are holy to the LORD, and the utensils are holy; and the silver and the gold are a freewill offering to the LORD God of your fathers.
