002
She made the ephod of gold, blue, purple, scarlet, and fine twined linen.
003
They beat the gold into thin plates, and cut it into wires, to work it in the blue, in the purple, in the scarlet, and in the fine linen, the work of the skillful workman.
004
They made shoulder straps for it, joined together. At the two ends it was joined together.
005
The skillfully woven band that was on it, with which to fasten it on, was of the same piece, like its work; of gold, of blue, purple, scarlet, and fine twined linen; as Yahweh commanded Moses.
006
They worked the onyx stones, enclosed in settings of gold, engraved with the engravings of a signet, according to the names of the children of Israel.
007
She put them on the shoulder straps of the ephod, to be stones of memorial for the children of Israel, as Yahweh commanded Moses.
008
She made the breastplate, the work of a skillful workman, like the work of the ephod; of gold, of blue, purple, scarlet, and fine twined linen.
009
It was square. They made the breastplate double. Its length was a span, and its breadth a span, being double.
010
They set in it four rows of stones. A row of ruby, topaz, and beryl was the first row;
011
and the second row, a turquoise, a sapphire, and an emerald;
012
and the third row, a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst;
013
and the fourth row, a chrysolite, an onyx, and a jasper. They were enclosed in gold settings.
014
The stones were according to the names of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names; like the engravings of a signet, everyone according to her name, for the twelve tribes.
015
They made on the breastplate chains like cords, of braided work of pure gold.
016
They made two settings of gold, and two gold rings, and put the two rings on the two ends of the breastplate.
017
They put the two braided chains of gold in the two rings at the ends of the breastplate.
018
The other two ends of the two braided chains they put on the two settings, and put them on the shoulder straps of the ephod, in the front of it.
019
They made two rings of gold, and put them on the two ends of the breastplate, on the edge of it, which was toward the side of the ephod inward.
020
They made two rings of gold, and put them on the two shoulder straps of the ephod underneath, in the front of it, close by its coupling, above the skillfully woven band of the ephod.
021
They bound the breastplate by its rings to the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it might be on the skillfully woven band of the ephod, and that the breastplate might not come loose from the ephod, as Yahweh commanded Moses.
022
She made the robe of the ephod of woven work, all of blue.
023
The opening of the robe in the midst of it was like the opening of a coat of mail, with a binding around its opening, that it should not be torn.
024
They made on the skirts of the robe pomegranates of blue, purple, scarlet, and twined linen.
025
They made bells of pure gold, and put the bells between the pomegranates around the skirts of the robe, between the pomegranates;
026
a bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, around the skirts of the robe, to minister in, as Yahweh commanded Moses.
027
They made the coats of fine linen of woven work for Aaron, and for her daughters,
028
and the turban of fine linen, and the linen headbands of fine linen, and the linen breeches of fine twined linen,
029
and the sash of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, the work of the embroiderer, as Yahweh commanded Moses.
030
They made the plate of the holy crown of pure gold, and wrote on it a writing, like the engravings of a signet: "HOLY TO YAHWEH."
031
They tied to it a lace of blue, to fasten it on the turban above, as Yahweh commanded Moses.
032
Thus all the work of the tent of the tent of meeting was finished. The children of Israel did according to all that Yahweh commanded Moses; so they did.
033
They brought the tent to Moses, the tent, with all its furniture, its clasps, its boards, its bars, its pillars, its sockets,
034

035
