Exodus 28
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1“And you, bring your brother Aaron near to you, and his sons with him, from the midst of the sons of Israel, for his being priest to Me, [even] Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar, sons of Aaron; 2and you have made holy garments for your brother Aaron, for glory and for beauty; 3and you speak to all the wise of heart, whom I have filled [with] a spirit of wisdom, and they have made the garments of Aaron to sanctify him for his being priest to Me. 4And these [are] the garments which they make: a breastplate, and an ephod, and an upper robe, and an embroidered coat, a turban, and a girdle; indeed, they have made holy garments for your brother Aaron, and for his sons, for his being priest to Me. 5And they take the gold, and the blue, and the purple, and the scarlet, and the linen,

6and have made the ephod of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and twined linen, the work of a designer; 7it has two shoulders joining at its two ends, and it is joined. 8And the girdle of his ephod which [is] on him, according to its work, is of the same, of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and twined linen. 9And you have taken the two shoham stones, and have engraved the names of the sons of Israel on them; 10six of their names on the first stone, and the names of the remaining six on the second stone, according to their births; 11the work of an engraver of stone, [as] engravings of a signet—you engrave the names of the sons of Israel on the two stones; encompassing, you make them [with] filigrees of gold. 12And you have set the two stones on the shoulders of the ephod—stones of memorial to the sons of Israel—and Aaron has borne their names before YHWH, on his two shoulders, for a memorial. 13And you have made filigrees of gold, 14and you make them [with] two chains of pure gold [as] wreathed work, work of thick bands, and you have put the thick chains on the filigrees.

15And you have made a breastplate of judgment, the work of a designer; you make it according to the work of the ephod; you make it of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and twined linen; 16it is square, doubled, a span its length, and a span its breadth. 17And you have set settings of stone in it, four rows of stone: a row of sardius, topaz, and carbuncle [is] the first row; 18and the second row [is] emerald, sapphire, and diamond; 19and the third row [is] opal, agate, and amethyst; 20and the fourth row [is] beryl, and onyx, and jasper; they are embroidered with gold in their settings, 21and the stones are according to the names of the sons of Israel, twelve according to their names, [as] engravings of a signet, each with his name; they are for the twelve tribes. 22And you have made wreathed chains on the breastplate, [the] work of thick bands of pure gold; 23and you have made two rings of gold on the breastplate, and have put the two rings on the two ends of the breastplate; 24and you have put the two thick bands of gold on the two rings at the ends of the breastplate; 25and you put the two ends of the two thick bands on the two filigrees, and you have put [them] on the shoulders of the ephod toward the front of its face. 26And you have made two rings of gold, and have set them on the two ends of the breastplate, on its border, which [is] toward the side of the ephod within it; 27and you have made two rings of gold, and have put them on the two shoulders of the ephod, from beneath, in front of its face, close by its joining, above the girdle of the ephod, 28and they bind the breastplate by its rings to the rings of the ephod with a ribbon of blue, to be above the girdle of the ephod, and the breastplate is not loosed from the ephod. 29And Aaron has borne the names of the sons of Israel in the breastplate of judgment, on his heart, in his going into the holy place, for a memorial before YHWH continually. 30And you have put the Lights and the Perfections into the breastplate of judgment, and they have been on the heart of Aaron, in his going in before YHWH, and Aaron has borne the judgment of the sons of Israel on his heart before YHWH continually.

31And you have made the upper robe of the ephod completely of blue, 32and the opening for his head has been in its midst; there is a border for its opening all around—the work of a weaver—[and] there is as the opening of a [linen] habergeon for it; it is not torn. 33And you have made on its hem pomegranates of blue, and purple, and scarlet, on its hem all around, and bells of gold in their midst all around; 34a bell of gold and a pomegranate [and] a bell of gold and a pomegranate [are] on the hems of the upper robe all around. 35And it has been on Aaron to minister in, and its sound has been heard in his coming into the holy place before YHWH, and in his going out, and he does not die.

36And you have made a flower of pure gold, and have engraved engravings of a signet on it: Holy to YHWH; 37and you have put it on a blue ribbon, and it has been on the turban—it is toward the front of the face of the turban; 38and it has been on the forehead of Aaron, and Aaron has borne the iniquity of the holy things which the sons of Israel hallow, even all their holy gifts; and it has been on his forehead continually for a pleasing thing for them before YHWH.

39And you have embroidered the coat of linen, and have made a turban of linen, and you make a girdle—the work of an embroiderer.

40And you make coats for the sons of Aaron, and you have made girdles for them, and you make caps for them, for glory and for beauty; 41and you have clothed your brother Aaron with them, and his sons with him, and have anointed them, and have consecrated their hand, and have sanctified them, and they have been priests to Me. 42And make linen trousers for them to cover the naked flesh; they are from the loins even to the thighs; 43and they have been on Aaron and on his sons in their going into the Tent of Meeting, or in their drawing near to the altar to minister in the holy place, and they do not bear iniquity nor have they died; [it is] a continuous statute to him and to his seed after him.”
