1 And take you unto you Aaron (Aharon) your brother, and his sons with him, from among the children of Yisrael, that he may minister unto me as priests (kohanim), even Aaron (Aharon), Nadav and Avihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron (Aharon)’s sons.
2 And you shalt make holy garments for Aaron (Aharon) your brother for glory and for beauty.
3 And you shalt speak unto all that are wise hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they may make Aaron (Aharon)’s garments to consecrate him, that he may minister unto Me as priests (kohanim).
4 And these are the garments which they shall make; a breastplate, and an ephod, and a robe, and a broidered coat, a mitre, and a girdle: and they shall make holy garments for Aaron (Aharon) your brother, and his sons, that he may minister unto Me as priests (kohanim).
5 And they shall take gold, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen.
6 And they shall make the ephod of gold, of blue, and of purple, of scarlet, and fine twined linen, with cunning work.
7 It shall have the two shoulderpieces thereof joined at the two edges thereof; and so it shall be joined together.
8 And the curious girdle of the ephod, which is upon it, shall be of the same, according to the work thereof; even of gold, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.
9 And you shalt take two onyx stones, and grave on them the names of the children of Yisrael;
10 Six of their names on one stone, and the other six names of the rest on the other stone, according to their birth.
11 With the work of an engraver in stone, like the engravings of a signet, shalt you engrave the two stones with the names of the children of Yisrael. You shalt make them to be set in ouches of gold.
12 And you shalt put the two stones upon the shoulders of the ephod for stones of memorial unto the children of Yisrael; and Aaron (Aharon) shall bear their names before יהוה upon his two shoulders for a memorial.
13 And you shalt make ouches of gold;
14 And two chains of pure gold at the ends; of wreathen work shalt you make them, and fasten the wreathen chains to the ouches.
15 And you shalt make the breastplate of judgment with cunning work; after the work of the ephod you shalt make it; of gold, of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine twined linen, shalt you make it.
16 Foursquare it shall be being doubled; a span shall be the length thereof, and a span shall be the breadth thereof.
17 And you shalt set in it settings of stones, even four rows of stones: the first row shall be a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle; this shall be the first row.
18 And the second row shall be an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond.
19 And the third row a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst.
20 And the fourth row a beryl, and an onyx, and a jasper; they shall be set in gold in their inclosings.
21 And the stones shall be with the names of the children of Yisrael, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet; every one with his name shall they be according to the twelve tribes.
22 And you shalt make upon the breastplate chains at the ends of wreathen work of pure gold.
23 And you shalt make upon the breastplate two rings of gold, and shalt put the two rings on the two ends of the breastplate.
24 And you shalt put the two wreathen chains of gold in the two rings which are on the ends of the breastplate.
25 And the other two ends of the two wreathen chains you shalt fasten in the two ouches, and put them on the shoulderpieces of the ephod before it.
26 And you shalt make two rings of gold, and you shalt put them upon the two ends of the breastplate in the border thereof, which is in the side of the ephod inward.
27 And two other rings of gold you shalt make, and shalt put them on the two sides of the ephod underneath, toward the forepart thereof, opposite the other coupling thereof, above the curious girdle of the ephod.
28 And they shall bind the breastplate by the rings thereof unto the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it may be above the curious girdle of the ephod, and that the breastplate be not loosed from the ephod.
29 And Aaron (Aharon) shall bear the names of the children of Yisrael in the breastplate of judgment upon his heart, when he goeth in unto the holy place, for a memorial before יהוה continually.
30 And you shalt put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim and the Thummim; and they shall be upon Aaron (Aharon)’s heart, when he goeth in before יהוה. And Aaron (Aharon) shall bear the judgment of the children of Yisrael upon his heart before יהוה continually.
31 And you shalt make the robe of the ephod all of blue.
32 And there shall be a hole in the top of it, in the midst thereof; it shall have a binding of woven work round about the hole of it, as it was the hole of a habergeon, that it be not rent.
33 And beneath upon the hem of it you shalt make pomegranates of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, round about the hem thereof; and bells of gold between them round about:
34 A golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a pomegranate, upon the hem of the robe round about.
35 And it shall be upon Aaron (Aharon) to minister; and its sound shall be heard when he goeth in unto the holy place before יהוה, and when he cometh out, that he dies not.
36 And you shalt make a plate of pure gold, and engrave upon it, like the engravings of a signet: 10Holiness unto יהוה (Qodesh la-YHWH).
37 And you shalt put it on a blue lace, that it may be upon the mitre; upon the forefront of the mitre it shall be.
38 And it shall be upon Aaron (Aharon)’s forehead, that Aaron (Aharon) may bear the iniquity of the holy things, which the children of Yisrael shall hallow in all their holy gifts; and it shall be always upon his forehead, that they may be accepted before יהוה.
39 And you shalt embroider the coat of fine linen, and you shalt make the mitre of fine linen, and you shalt make the girdle of needlework.
40 And for Aaron (Aharon)’s sons you shalt make coats, and you shalt make for them girdles, and bonnets shalt you make for them, for glory and for beauty.
41 And you shalt put them upon Aaron (Aharon) your brother, and his sons with him; and shalt anoint them, and consecrate them, and sanctify them, that they may minister unto Me as priests (kohanim).
42 And you shalt make them linen breeches to cover their nakedness; from the loins even unto the thighs they shall reach:
43 And they shall be upon Aaron (Aharon), and upon his sons, when they come in unto the tabernacle of the congregation, or when they come near unto the altar to minister in the holy place; that they bear not iniquity, and die. It shall be a statute forever unto him and his seed after him.”
