Half Shekel for the Sanctuary

11 ¶ And the Lord spake vnto Moses, saying,

12 When thou takest the summe of the children of Israel, after their number, then shall they giue euery man a ransome for his soule vnto the Lord, when thou numbrest them, that there be no plague amongst them, when thou numbrest them.

13 This they shall giue, euery one that passeth among them that are numbred: halfe a shekel after the shekel of the Sanctuary: A shekel is twenty gerahs: an halfe shekel shall be the offering of the Lord.

14 Euery one that passeth among them that are numbred from twentie yeeres old and aboue, shall giue an offering vnto the Lord.

15 The rich shal not giue more, and the poore shall not giue lesse then halfe a shekel, when they giue an offering vnto the Lord, to make an atonement for your soules.

16 And thou shalt take the atonement money of the children of Israel, and shalt appoint it for the seruice of the Tabernacle of the Congregation, that it may be a memoriall vnto the children of Israel before the Lord, to make an atonement for your soules.

Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them (Matt 7:20).
