Exodus 39

 1 Truly, from hyacinth and purple, vermillion and fine linen, he made the vestments with which Aaron was clothed when he ministered in the holy places, just as the Lord instructed Moses 2 And so he made an ephod of gold, hyacinth, and purple, and twice-dyed scarlet, and fine twisted linen 3 wrought with embroidery. And he cut thin strips of gold and drew them into threads, so that they could be twisted into the weave of the first colors 4 And he made two edges, coupled to one another at the top of both sides 5 and a wide belt from the same colors, just as the Lord had instructed Moses 6 He also prepared two onyx stones, set and enclosed in gold, and engraved with the skill of a jeweler, with the names of the sons of Israel 7 And he set them in the sides of the ephod, as a memorial to the sons of Israel, just as the Lord had instructed Moses 8 He also made a breastplate, wrought with embroidery, according to the work of the ephod, from gold, hyacinth, purple, and twice-dyed scarlet, and fine twisted linen 9 with four equal sides, doubled, of the measure of the palm of a hand 10 And he set four rows of gems in it. In the first row was a sardius stone, a topaz, an emerald 11 in the second was a garnet, a sapphire, and a jasper 12 in the third was a zircon, an agate, and an amethyst 13 in the fourth was a chrysolite, an onyx, and a beryl, surrounded and enclosed in gold by their rows 14 And these twelve stones were engraved with the names of the twelve tribes of Israel, each one with a single name 15 They also made, in the breastplate, little chains linked to one another, from the purest gold 16 and two hooks, and the same number of gold rings. Moreover, they set the rings at both sides of the breastplate 17 from which two golden chains would hang, which they connected with the hooks that projected from the corners of the ephod 18 These were both in front and in back so that they met one another, and so that the ephod and the breastplate were woven together 19 being fastened to the wide belt and strongly coupled with rings, to which a hyacinth band was joined, lest they should shake loose and be moved away from one another, just as the Lord instructed Moses 20 They also made the tunic of the ephod entirely from hyacinth 21 with the head in the upper part at the middle, and a woven edge all around the head 22 Then, at the feet below, they also made pomegranates from hyacinth, purple, vermillion, and fine twisted linen 23 and little bells from the purest gold, which they set between the pomegranates at the very bottom of the tunic all around 24 So then, the high priest approached, adorned with gold bell and pomegranate, when he performed his ministry, just as the Lord had instructed Moses 25 They also made fine linen tunics with woven work, for Aaron and his sons 26 and headdresses with their little crowns of fine linen 27 and also linen undergarments of fine linen 28 Truly, they also made a wide band of fine twisted linen, hyacinth, purple, as well as vermillion, twice-dyed, with skillful embroidery, just as the Lord had instructed Moses 29 They also made the plate of sacred veneration from the purest gold, and they wrote on it, with the skill of a jeweler: "Holy to the Lord. 30 And they fastened it to the headdress with a hyacinth band, just as the Lord had instructed Moses 31 And so all the work of the tabernacle and of the covering of the testimony was completed. And the sons of Israel did all that the Lord had instructed Moses 32 And they offered the tabernacle, and the covering, and all of the articles: the rings, the panels, the bars, the columns and bases 33 the cover of the skins of rams, dyed red, and the other cover of violet skins 34 the veil, the ark, the bars, the propitiatory 35 the table, with its vessels and the bread of the presence 36 the lampstand, the lamps, and their utensils with the oil 37 the altar of gold, and the ointment, and the incense of aromatics 38 and the tent at the entrance of the tabernacle 39 the altar of brass, the grating, the bars, and all of its vessels, the washtub with its base, the hangings of the atrium, and the columns with their bases 40 the hanging at the entrance of the atrium, and their little cords and pegs. Nothing was lacking of the articles that were commanded to be made for the ministry of the tabernacle and for the covering of the covenant 41 Likewise, the vestments, which the priests, namely, Aaron and his sons, make use of use in the Sanctuary 42 the sons of Israel offered, just as the Lord had instructed 43 After this, when Moses saw that everything was completed, he blessed them
