    Clarke's Commentary on Exodus 35:22

    As many as were willing-hearted - For no one was forced to lend his help in this sacred work; all was a free-will offering to the Lord.

    Bracelets - חח chach, whatever hooks together; ornaments for the wrists, arms, legs, or neck.

    Ear-rings - נזם nezem, see this explained Genesis 24:22 (note).

    Rings - טבעת tabbaath, from טבי taba, to penetrate, enter into; probably rings for the fingers.

    Tablets - כומז cumaz, a word only used here and in Numbers 31:50, supposed to be a girdle to support the breasts.

    Barnes' Notes on Exodus 35:22

    Bracelets - Rather, brooches.

    Earrings - The Hebrew word signifies a ring, either for the nose (see Genesis 24:22) or for the ear Exodus 32:2; Genesis 35:4. That ear-rings, not nose-rings, are here meant is confirmed by what we know of early Hebrew and Egyptian customs.

    Rings - Signet rings.

    Tablets - More probably, armlets. It is most likely that all the articles mentioned in this verse were of gold. The indulgence of private luxury was thus given up for the honor of the Lord. Compare Exodus 30:18 note.
