Exodus 39

The cloths of service, and holy garments.

Exodus 39:1 And he made, of violet and purple, scarlet and fine linen, the vestments for Aaron to wear when he ministered in the holy places, as the Lord commanded Moses.

The ephod.

Exodus 39:2 So he made an ephod of gold, violet, and purple, and scarlet twice dyed, and fine twisted linen, Exodus 39:3 With embroidered work, and he cut thin plates of gold, and drew them small into threads, that they might be twisted with the woof of the foresaid colours, Exodus 39:4 And two borders coupled one to the other in the top on either side, Exodus 39:5 And a girdle of the same colours, as the Lord had commanded Moses.

Exodus 39:6 He prepared also two onyx stones, fast set and closed in gold, and graven, by the art of a lapidary, with the names of the children of Israel: Exodus 39:7 And he set them in the sides of the ephod, for a memorial of the children of Israel, as the Lord had commanded Moses.

The breastplate.

Exodus 39:8 He made also a rational with embroidered work, according to the work of the ephod, of gold, violet, purple, and scarlet twice dyed, and fine twisted linen: Exodus 39:9 Foursquare, double, of the measure of a span. Exodus 39:10 And he set four rows of precious stones in it. In the first row was a sardius, a topaz, an emerald. Exodus 39:11 In the second, a carbuncle, a sapphire, and a jasper. Exodus 39:12 In the third, a ligurius, an agate, and an amethyst. Exodus 39:13 In the fourth, a chrysolite, an onyx, and a beryl, set and enclosed in gold by their rows. Exodus 39:14 And the twelve stones, were engraved with the names of the twelve tribes of Israel, each one with its several name. Exodus 39:15 They made also in the rational little chains, linked one to another, of the purest gold, Exodus 39:16 And two hooks, and as many rings of gold. And they set the rings on either side of the rational, Exodus 39:17 On which rings the two golden chains should hang, which they put into the hooks that stood out in the corners of the ephod. Exodus 39:18 These both before and behind so answered one another, that the ephod and the rational were bound together, Exodus 39:19 Being fastened to the girdle, and strongly coupled with rings, which a violet fillet joined, lest they should flag loose, and be moved one from the other, as the Lord commanded Moses. Exodus 39:20 They made also the tunic of the ephod all of violet, Exodus 39:21 And a hole for the head in the upper part at the middle, and a woven border round about the hole:

The robe of the ephod.

Exodus 39:22 And beneath at the feet pomegranates of violet, purple, scarlet, and fine twisted linen: Exodus 39:23 And little bells of the purest gold, which they put between the pomegranates at the bottom of the tunic round about: Exodus 39:24 To wit, a bell of gold, and a pomegranate, wherewith the high priest went adorned, when he discharged his ministry, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Exodus 39:25 They made also fine linen tunics with woven work for Aaron and his sons: Exodus 39:26 And mitres with their little crowns of fine linen:

The coats, mitre, and girdle of fine linen.

Exodus 39:27 And linen breeches of fine linen: Exodus 39:28 And a girdle of fine twisted linen, violet, purple, and scarlet twice dyed, of embroidery work, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Exodus 39:29 They made also the plate of sacred veneration of the purest gold, and they wrote on it with the engraving of a lapidary: The Holy of the Lord:

The plate of the holy crown.

Exodus 39:30 And they fastened it to the mitre with a violet fillet, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Exodus 39:31 So all the work of the tabernacle and of the roof of the testimony was finished: and the children of Israel did all things which the Lord had commanded Moses.

All is viewed and approved by Moses.

Exodus 39:32 And they offered the tabernacle, and the roof, and the whole furniture, the rings, the boards, the bars, the pillars and their sockets,

Exodus 39:33 The cover of rams' skins dyed red, and the other cover of violet skins, Exodus 39:34 The veil, the ark, the bars, the propitiatory, Exodus 39:35 The table, with the vessels thereof, and the loaves of proposition: Exodus 39:36 The candlestick, the lamps, and the furniture of them, with the oil: Exodus 39:37 The altar of gold, and the ointment, and the incense of spices: Exodus 39:38 And the hanging in the entry of the tabernacle: Exodus 39:39 The altar of brass, the grate, the bars, and all the vessels thereof: the laver, with the foot thereof: the hangings of the court, and the pillars, with their sockets: Exodus 39:40 The hanging in the entry of the court, and the little cords, and the pins thereof. Nothing was wanting of the vessels, that were commanded to be made for the ministry of the tabernacle, and for the roof of the covenant. Exodus 39:41 The vestments also, which the priests, to wit, Aaron and his sons, use in the sanctuary, Exodus 39:42 The children of Israel offered, as the Lord had commanded. Exodus 39:43 And when Moses saw all things finished, he blessed them.
