2 “You shall make aholy garments for Aaron your brother, for glory and for beauty.
4 “These are the garments which they shall make: a 1abreastpiece and an ephod and a robe and a tunic of checkered work, a turban and a sash, and they shall make holy garments for Aaron your brother and his sons, that he may minister as priest to Me.
10 six of their names on the one stone and the names of the remaining six on the 1other stone, according to their birth.
12 “You shall put the two stones on the shoulder pieces of the ephod, as stones of memorial for the sons of Israel, and Aaron shall abear their names before the Lord on his two shoulders bfor a memorial.
13 “aYou shall make filigree settings of gold,
15 “aYou shall make a 1breastpiece of judgment, the work of a skillful workman; like the work of the ephod you shall make it: of gold, of 2blue and purple and scarlet material and fine twisted linen you shall make it.
17 “You shall 1mount on it four rows of stones; the first row shall be a row of ruby, topaz and emerald;
20 and the fourth row a beryl and an onyx and a jasper; they shall be 1set in gold filigree.
21 “The stones shall be according to the names of the sons of Israel: twelve, according to their names; they shall be like the engravings of a seal, each aaccording to his name for the twelve tribes.
22 “You shall make on the 1breastpiece chains of twisted cordage work in pure gold.
27 “You shall make two rings of gold and put them on the bottom of the two shoulder pieces of the ephod, on the front of it close to the place where it is joined, above the skillfully woven band of the ephod.
28 “They shall bind the breastpiece by its rings to the rings of the ephod with a 1blue cord, so that it will be on the skillfully woven band of the ephod, and that the breastpiece will not come loose from the ephod.
30 “aYou shall put in the breastpiece of judgment the 1bUrim and the Thummim, and they shall be over Aaron’s heart when he goes in before the Lord; and Aaron shall carry the judgment of the sons of Israel over his heart before the Lord continually.
32 “There shall be an opening 1at its top in the middle of it; around its opening there shall be a binding of woven work, like the opening of a coat of mail, so that it will not be torn.
38 “It shall be on Aaron’s forehead, and Aaron shall 1atake away the iniquity of the holy things which the sons of Israel consecrate, with regard to all their holy gifts; and it shall always be on his forehead, that bthey may be accepted before the Lord.
43 “They shall be on Aaron and on his sons when they enter the tent of meeting, or awhen they approach the altar to minister in the holy place, so that they do not incur 1guilt and die. bIt shall be a statute forever to him and to his 2descendants after him.
