Parshat Vayak'hel

Here's the Blueprint

       ...let whoever is of a generous heart
          bring the Lord's offering: gold, silver,
          and bronze, blue, purple, and crimson yarns...
          spices for the anointing oil,..
          and onyx stones and gems...
                      -- Exodus 35:5-9

God said, Bezalel, build me
 a tabernacle-- a place for me to live
 Bezalel, son of Hur, of the tribe
of Judah followed directions,
each curtain, every upright frame,
the ark of acacia wood-- all
measured to the given cubits
All gone now, buried under rubble
God still needs a place to stay
if you want you can open the door
