Exodus 39

CHAPTER 39

Apparels for the Ministry

And the leftover blue and purple and the scarlet they made into apparels for the ministry of Aaron, for the officiating in them in the holy place, as the  lord gave orders to Moses. And they made the shoulder-piece from out of gold, and blue, and purple, and scarlet being spun, and linen being twined. And [3were trimmed apart 1the 2panels], of the [2of gold 1hairs], so as to weave together with the blue and the purple, and with the scarlet being spun, and with the linen being twined -- [2work 1a woven] they made it; shoulder-pieces held together by both of the parts; [2work 1a woven] into one another being closely joined to itself. From it they made according to the same making, of gold, and blue, and purple, and scarlet being spun, and linen being twined, as the  lord gave orders to Moses. And they made both of the stones of emerald, being clasped together and being inlaid in gold, being carved and being engraved -- an engraved seal of the names of the sons of Israel. and they placed them upon the shoulders of the shoulder-piece; [2stones 3of memorial 1they are] of the sons of Israel, as the  lord gave orders to Moses. And they made the oracle -- [2work 1a woven] in embroidery, according to the work of the shoulder-piece; of gold, and blue, and purple, and scarlet being spun, and linen being twined. [4four-cornered 5double 1They made 2the 3oracle]. A span was the length, and a span was the breadth, doubled. 10 And they wove together in it a woven work inlaid with precious stones, arranged in four rows. A row of stones -- sardius, and topaz, and emerald, was the [2row 1one]. 11 And the [2row 1second] -- carbuncle, and sapphire, and jasper. 12 And the [2row 1third] -- amber, and agate, and amethyst; 13 and the [2row 1fourth] -- chrysolite, and beryl, and onyx; being surrounded by gold and being tied together by gold. 14 And the stones were of the names of the [2sons 3of Israel 1twelve], of [2twelve 3names 1their] being engraved seals, each of its own name for the twelve tribes. 15 And they made [2upon 3the 4oracle 1a border], [3being closely joined 1a work 2of wreath] from out of [2gold 1pure]. 16 And they made two bezels of gold, and two rings of gold. 17 And they placed the two rings of gold upon both the corners of the oracle. And they placed the wreaths of gold upon the two rings, upon both of the parts of the oracle, and for the two couplings for the two wreaths. 18 And they placed them upon the two bezels of the shoulders of the shoulder-piece, right opposite down in front. 19 And they made two rings of gold. And they placed them upon the two fins at the tip of the oracle upon the tip of the posterior of the shoulder-piece from inside. 20 And they made two rings of gold, and placed them upon both of the shoulders of the shoulder-piece from below it, down in front, down from the coupling from above the woven part of the shoulder-piece. 21 And he fastened the oracle by the rings upon it, to the rings of the shoulder-piece, to hold it together -- from out of blue, being closely joined into the woven work of the shoulder-piece, that [3would not 4slacken 1the 2oracle] from the shoulder-piece, as the  lord gave orders to Moses. 22 And they made the undergarment under the shoulder-piece, [2work 1a woven], entirely of blue. 23 And the cleft of the undergarment was in the middle, being interwoven closely, [2an edge 1having] round about the cleft, reinforced. 24 And they made upon the hem of the undergarment from below as it were of a blossoming pomegranate -- figures of pomegranates of blue, and purple, and scarlet being spun, and linen being twined. 25 And they made bells of gold. And they placed the bells upon the hems of the undergarment round about, between the figures of pomegranates. 26 Bells of gold and pomegranate figures upon the hem of the undergarment round about, for the officiating, as the  lord gave orders to Moses. 27 And they made garments of fine linen, [2work 1a woven], for Aaron and his sons. And the turbans from out of linen, 28 and the mitre from out of linen, and the pants from out of linen being twined; 29 and their belts from out of linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet being spun, the work of an embroiderer, in which manner the  lord gave orders to Moses. 30 And they made the [2panel 1golden], a separation offering for the holy place, [2gold 1of pure]. And they wrote upon it letters being shaped as of a seal, Sanctified to the  lord. 31 And they put upon it a hem of blue, so as to rest upon the mitre above, in which manner the  lord gave orders to Moses. 32 And [7was completed 1all 2work 3of the 4tent 5of the 6testimony]. And [4made 1the 2sons 3of Israel] according to all whatsoever the  lord gave orders to Moses. 33 And they brought the tent to Moses, and all the items for it, and its rings, and its posts, and its bars, and its stanchions, and its bases, 34 and the leather coverings of the skins of rams dyed red, and the [2coverings 1skin] of blue, and the veil, 35 and the ark of the testimony, and its poles, and the altar, 36 and the table, and all its utensils, and the bread loaves of the place setting, 37 and the [2lamp-stand 1pure], and its lamps -- lamps for burning, and all its utensils, and the oil for the light, 38 and the [2altar 1golden], and the oil for the anointing, and the incense of the composition, and the draw curtain of the door of the tent, 39 and the altar of brass, and its grate brass, and its bearing poles, all its items, and the bathing tub, and its base, 40 and the shrouds of the courtyard, and the posts, and its bases, and the draw curtain of the gate of the courtyard, and its lines, and its stanchions, and all the work tools, the ones for the works of the tent of the testimony, and the robes of the ministries for the ministering in them in the holy place, 41 and the apparels of the holy place which are for Aaron, and the apparels of his sons for the priesthood. 42 According to all as much as the  lord gave orders to Moses, thus [4made 1the 2sons 3of Israel] all the accoutrements. And Moses saw all the works; and they were doing them in the manner the  lord gave orders 43 to Moses; thus they did them, and [2blessed 3them 1Moses].
