Exodus 28:4-39

[4] And these are the garments  which they shall make;  a breastplate,  and an ephod,  and a robe,  and a broidered  coat,  a mitre,  and a girdle:  and they shall make  holy  garments  for Aaron  thy brother,  and his sons,  that he may minister unto me in the priest's office.  [5] And they shall take  gold,  and blue,  and purple,  and scarlet,  and fine linen.  [6] And they shall make  the ephod  of gold,  of blue,  and of purple,  of scarlet,  and fine twined  linen,  with cunning  work.  [7] It shall have the two  shoulderpieces  thereof joined  at the two  edges  thereof; and so it shall be joined together.  [8] And the curious girdle  of the ephod,  which is upon it, shall be of the same, according to the work  thereof; even of gold,  of blue,  and purple,  and scarlet,  and fine twined  linen.  [9] And thou shalt take  two  onyx  stones,  and grave  on them the names  of the children  of Israel:  [10] Six  of their names  on one  stone,  and the other six  names  of the rest  on the other  stone,  according to their birth.  [11] With the work  of an engraver  in stone,  like the engravings  of a signet,  shalt thou engrave  the two  stones  with the names  of the children  of Israel:  thou shalt make  them to be set  in ouches  of gold.  [12] And thou shalt put  the two  stones  upon the shoulders  of the ephod  for stones  of memorial  unto the children  of Israel:  and Aaron  shall bear  their names  before  the LORD  upon his two  shoulders  for a memorial.  [13] And thou shalt make  ouches  of gold;  [14] And two  chains  of pure  gold  at the ends;  of wreathen  work  shalt thou make  them, and fasten  the wreathen  chains  to the ouches.  [15] And thou shalt make  the breastplate  of judgment  with cunning  work;  of the ephod  thou shalt make  it; of gold,  of blue,  and of purple,  and of scarlet,  and of fine twined  linen,  shalt thou make  [16] Foursquare  it shall be being doubled;  a span  shall be the length  thereof, and a span  shall be the breadth  [17] And thou shalt set  in it settings  of stones,  even four  rows  of stones:  the first row  shall be a sardius,  a topaz,  and a carbuncle:  this shall be the first  row.  [18] And the second  row  shall be an emerald,  a sapphire,  and a diamond.  [19] And the third  row  a ligure,  an agate,  and an amethyst.  [20] And the fourth  row  a beryl,  and an onyx,  and a jasper:  they shall be set  in gold  in their inclosings.  [21] And the stones  shall be with the names  of the children  of Israel,  twelve,  according to their names,  like the engravings  of a signet;  every one  with his name  shall they be according to the twelve  tribes.  [22] And thou shalt make  upon the breastplate  chains  at the ends  of wreathen  work  of pure  gold.  [23] And thou shalt make  upon the breastplate  two  rings  of gold,  and shalt put  the two  rings  on the two  ends  of the breastplate.  [24] And thou shalt put  the two  wreathen  chains of gold  in the two  rings  which are on the ends  of the breastplate.  [25] And the other two  ends  of the two  wreathen  chains thou shalt fasten  in the two  ouches,  and put  them on the shoulderpieces  of the ephod  before  it.  [26] And thou shalt make  two  rings  of gold,  and thou shalt put  them upon the two  ends  of the breastplate  in the border  thereof, which is in the side  of the ephod  inward.  [27] And two  other rings  of gold  thou shalt make,  and shalt put  them on the two  sides  of the ephod  underneath,  toward  the forepart  thereof, over against  the other coupling  thereof, above  the curious girdle  of the ephod.  [28] And they shall bind  the breastplate  by the rings  of the ephod  with a lace  of blue,  that it may be above the curious girdle  of the ephod,  and that the breastplate  be not loosed  from the ephod.  [29] And Aaron  shall bear  the names  of the children  of Israel  in the breastplate  of judgment  upon his heart,  when he goeth  in unto the holy  place, for a memorial  before  the LORD  continually.  [30] And thou shalt put  in the breastplate  of judgment  the Urim  and the Thummim;  and they shall be upon Aaron's  heart,  when he goeth  in before  the LORD:  and Aaron  shall bear  the judgment  of the children  of Israel  upon his heart  before  the LORD  continually.  [31] And thou shalt make  the robe  of the ephod  all  of blue.  [32] And there shall be an hole  in the top  of it, in the midst  thereof: it shall have a binding  of woven  work  round about  the hole  of an habergeon,  that it be not rent.  [33] And beneath upon the hem  of it thou shalt make  pomegranates  of blue,  and of purple,  and of scarlet,  round about  the hem  thereof; and bells  of gold  between  them round about:  [34] A golden  bell  and a pomegranate,  a golden  bell  and a pomegranate,  upon the hem  of the robe  round about.  [35] And it shall be upon Aaron  to minister:  and his sound  shall be heard  when he goeth  in unto the holy  place before  the LORD,  and when he cometh  out, that he die  not. [36] And thou shalt make  a plate  of pure  gold,  and grave  upon it, like the engravings  of a signet,  HOLINESS  TO THE LORD.  [37] And thou shalt put  it on a blue  lace,  that it may be upon the mitre;  upon the forefront  of the mitre  [38] And it shall be upon Aaron's  forehead,  that Aaron  may bear  the iniquity  of the holy things,  which the children  of Israel  shall hallow  in all their holy  gifts;  and it shall be always  upon his forehead,  that they may be accepted  before  the LORD.  [39] And thou shalt embroider  the coat  of fine linen,  and thou shalt make  the mitre  of fine linen,  and thou shalt make  the girdle  of needlework.
