Exodus 391And from the needlework of blue and purple and red they made the robes used for the work of the holy place, and the holy robes for Aaron, as the Lord had given orders to Moses. 2The ephod he made of gold and blue and purple and red and the best linen; 3Hammering the gold into thin plates and cutting it into wires to be worked into the blue and the purple and the red and the linen by the designer. 4And they made two bands for joining its edges together at the top of the arms. 5And the beautifully worked band which went on it was of the same design and the same material, worked in gold and blue and purple and red and twisted linen-work, as the Lord gave orders to Moses. 6Then they made the beryl stones, fixed in twisted frames of gold and cut like the cutting of a stamp, with the names of the children of Israel. 7These he put on the ephod, over the arm-holes, to be stones of memory for the children of Israel, as the Lord had said to Moses. 8The priest's bag was designed like the ephod, of the best linen worked with gold and blue and purple and red. 9It was square and folded in two, as long and as wide as the stretch of a man's hand; 10And on it they put four lines of stones: in the first line was a carnelian, a chrysolite, and an emerald; 11In the second, a ruby, a sapphire, and an onyx; 12In the third, a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst; 13In the fourth, a topaz, a beryl, and a jasper; they were fixed in twisted frames of gold. 14There were twelve stones for the twelve tribes of Israel; on every one the name of one of the tribes of Israel was cut, like the cutting of a stamp. 15And on the bag they put gold chains, twisted like cords. 16And they made two gold frames and two gold rings, the rings being fixed to the ends of the priest's bag; 17And they put the two twisted chains on the two rings at the ends of the priest's bag; 18And the other two ends of the chains were joined to the two frames and fixed to the front of the ephod over the arm-holes. 19And they made two rings of gold and put them on the two lower ends of the bag, on the inner side nearest to the ephod. 20And two other gold rings were put on the front of the ephod, over the arm-holes, at the join, and over the worked band. 21And the rings on the bag were fixed to the rings of the ephod by a blue cord, keeping it in place over the band, so that the bag might not get loose, as the Lord gave orders to Moses. 22The robe which went with the ephod was made all of blue; 23With a hole at the top in the middle, like the hole in the coat of a fighting-man, edged with a band to make it strong. 24The skirts of the robe were worked all round with fruits in blue and purple and red made of twisted linen. 25And between the fruits all round the skirt they put gold bells, as the Lord gave orders to Moses. 26All round the skirt of the robe were bells and fruits in turn. 27The coats for Aaron and his sons they made of the best linen; 28And the twisted head-dress for Aaron, and beautiful head-dresses of linen, and linen trousers, 29And a linen band worked with a design of blue and purple and red, as the Lord had said to Moses. 30The plate for the holy crown was made of the best gold, and on it were cut these words, HOLY TO THE LORD. 31It was fixed to the head-dress by a blue cord, as the Lord had given orders to Moses. 32So all the work on the House of the Tent of meeting was done; as the Lord had given orders to Moses, so the children of Israel did it. 33Then they took the House to Moses, the tent with all the things for it; its hooks, its boards, its rods, its pillars, and its bases; 34The outer cover of sheepskins coloured red, and the cover of leather, and the veil for the doorway; 35The ark of the law, with its rods and its cover; 36The table, with all its vessels and the holy bread; 37The support for the lights, with the vessels for the lights to be put in their places on it, and all its vessels, and the oil for the lights; 38And the gold altar, and the holy oil, and the sweet perfume for burning, and the curtain for the doorway of the tent; 39And the brass altar, with its network of brass, and its rods and all its vessels, and the washing-vessel and its base; 40The hangings for the open space, with the pillars and their bases, and the curtain for the doorway, and the cords and nails, and all the instruments necessary for the work of the House of the Tent of meeting; 41The robes for use in the holy place, and the holy robes for Aaron and his sons when acting as priests. 42The children of Israel did everything as the Lord had given orders to Moses. 43Then Moses, when he saw all their work and saw that they had done everything as the Lord had said, gave them his blessing.
