this is how i will dwell among them

god said to moses you shall accept
gifts from anyone whose heart is moved let
them bring their ragged scraps of cloth their
jagged flinty stones let them bring their
charred and splintered kindling the thick sands
of sinai gathered in the hems of their garments so
that when they leave my mountain when they go
stumbling back into the wilderness even as they
wander to the broken ends of the earth they
will know i dwell
among them

(Exodus 25:1-8)
