Treasury of Scripture

And the rulers brought onyx stones, and stones to be set, for the ephod, and for the breastplate;

Exodus 35:9
And onyx stones, and stones to be set for the ephod, and for the breastplate.

1 Chronicles 29:6
Then the chief of the fathers and princes of the tribes of Israel, and the captains of thousands and of hundreds, with the rulers of the king's work, offered willingly,

Ezra 2:68
And some of the chief of the fathers, when they came to the house of the LORD which is at Jerusalem, offered freely for the house of God to set it up in his place:









(27) The rulers brought onyx stones, and stones to be set.--The "rulers" here intended are probably the "princes of the tribes" of Israel (Numbers 1:16; Numbers 3:3; Numbers 3:5, &c.). The twelve stones required for the breastplate would naturally be contributed by the twelve chiefs of the tribes whose names they were to bear (Exodus 28:21). The two onyx stones for the ephod (Exodus 28:9-12), may have been the further gift of two of the number, who happened to possess stones of the large size needed.

Verses 27, 28. - The rulers are, no doubt, the "elders" of Exodus 3:16; Exodus 4:29; Exodus 24:9, etc. Moses had made them "rulers," or rather, "princes" (sarey), according to the advice of Jethro (Exodus 18:25). They brought onyx stones for the ephod (Exodus 28:9-12) and stones to be set, - i.e., gems for the breastplate (ibid. 17-20); oil of olive for the lamp (Exodus 27:20) and the holy ointment (Exodus 29:24), and spice for the same (ibid. 23, 24) and for the incense (ibid. 34).
