Exodus 361And Bezalel performed his work, and Eliab and everyone wise in understanding, to whom was given wisdom and knowledge, to understand how to do all the works according to the holy offices, according to all things which the Lord commanded. 2And Moses called Bezalel and Eliab, and all that had wisdom, to whom God gave knowledge in their heart, and all who were freely willing to come forward to the works, to perform them. 3And they received from Moses all the offerings, which the children of Israel brought for all the works of the sanctuary, to do them; and they continued to receive the gifts brought, from those who brought them in the morning. 4And there came all the wise men who wrought the works of the sanctuary, each according to his own work, which they performed. 5And one said to Moses, The people bring an abundance too great in proportion to all the works which the Lord has appointed them to do. 6And Moses commanded, and proclaimed in the camp, saying, Let neither man nor woman any longer labor for the offerings of the sanctuary; and the people were restrained from bringing any more. 7And they had materials sufficient for making the furniture, and they left some besides. 8And every wise one among those that wrought made the robes of the holy places, which belong to Aaron the priest, as the Lord commanded Moses. 9And he made the ephod of gold, blue, purple, and spun scarlet, and fine linen twined. 10And the plates were divided, the threads of gold, so as to interweave with the blue and purple, and with the spun scarlet, and the fine linen twined, they made it a woven work; 11shoulder pieces joined from both sides, a work woven by mutual twisting of the parts into one another. 12They made it of the same material according to the making of it, of gold, blue, purple, and spun scarlet, and fine linen twined, as the Lord commanded Moses. 13And they made the two emerald stones clasped together and set in gold, graven and cut after the cutting of a seal with the names of the children of Israel; 14and he put them on the shoulder pieces of the ephod, as stones of memorial of the children of Israel, as the Lord commanded Moses. 15And they made the oracle, a work woven with embroidery, according to the work of the ephod, of gold, blue, purple, and spun scarlet, and fine linen twined. 16They made the oracle square and double, the length of a span, and the breadth of a span, double. 17And there was interwoven with it a woven work of four rows of stones, a series of stones, the first row, a sardius and topaz and emerald; 18and the second row a carbuncle and sapphire and jasper; 19and the third row, a ligure and agate and amethyst; 20and the fourth row a chrysolite and beryl and onyx, set round about with gold, and fastened with gold. 21And the stones were twelve according to the names of the children of Israel, graven according to their names like seals, each according to his own name for the twelve tribes. 22And they made on the oracle turned wreaths, wreathen work, of pure gold, 23and they made two golden circlets and two golden rings. 24And they put the two golden rings on both the upper corners of the oracle; 25and they put the golden wreaths on the rings on both sides of the oracle, and the two wreaths into the two couplings. 26And they put them on the two circlets, and they put them on the shoulders of the ephod opposite each other in front. 27And they made two golden rings, and put them on the two projections on the top of the oracle, and on the top of the hinder part of the ephod within. 28And they made two golden rings, and put them on both the shoulders of the ephod under it, in front by the coupling above the connection of the ephod. 29And he fastened the oracle by the rings that were on it to the rings of the ephod, which were fastened with a string of blue, joined together with the woven work of the ephod; that the oracle should not be loosed from the ephod, as the Lord commanded Moses. 30And they made the tunic under the ephod, woven work, all of blue. 31And the opening of the tunic in the midst woven closely together, the opening having a fringe round about, that it might not be torn. 32And they made on the border of the tunic below pomegranates as of a flowering pomegranate tree, of blue, purple, spun scarlet, and fine linen twined. 33And they made golden bells, and put the bells on the border of the tunic round about between the pomegranates: 34a golden bell and a pomegranate on the border of the tunic round about, for the ministration, as the Lord commanded Moses. 35And they made vestments of fine linen, a woven work, for Aaron and his sons, 36and the tires of fine linen, and the turban of fine linen, and the drawers of fine linen twined; 37and their sashes of fine linen, blue, purple, and scarlet spun, the work of an embroiderer, according as the Lord commanded Moses. 38And they made the golden plate, a dedicated thing of the sanctuary, of pure gold; 39and he wrote upon it graven letters as of a seal, Holiness to the Lord. 40And they put it on the border of blue, so that it should be on the turban above, as the Lord commanded Moses.
