2And he made the ephod of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.
3And they beat the gold into thin plates, and cut it into wires, to work it in the blue, and in the purple, and in the scarlet, and in the fine linen, with curious work.
4They made shoulder-pieces for it, to couple it together: by the two edges was it coupled together.

8And he made the breast-plate of curious work, like the work of the ephod; of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.
9It was foursquare; they made the breast-plate double: a span was the length of it, and a span the breadth of it, being doubled.
10And they set in it four rows of stones: the first row was a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle: this was the first row.
11And the second row, an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond.
12And the third row, a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst.
13And the fourth row, a beryl, an onyx, and a jasper: they were inclosed in ouches of gold in their inclosings.
14And the stones were according to the names of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet, every one with his name, according to the twelve tribes.

19And they made two rings of gold, and put them on the two ends of the breast-plate, upon the border of it, which was on the side of the ephod inward.
20And they made two other golden rings, and put them on the two sides of the ephod underneath, towards the forepart of it, over against the other coupling thereof, above the curious girdle of the ephod:
21And they bound the breast-plate by its rings to the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it might be above the curious girdle of the ephod, and that the breast-plate might not be loosed from the ephod; as the LORD commanded Moses.
Additional Priestly Garments
22And he made the robe of the ephod of woven work, all of blue.
23And there was a hole in the midst of the robe, as the hole of an habergeon, with a band around the hole, that it should not rend.
24And they made upon the hems of the robe pomegranates of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and twined linen.
25And they made bells of pure gold, and put the bells between the pomegranates upon the hem of the robe, around between the pomegranates;
26A bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, around the hem of the robe to minister in; as the LORD commanded Moses.

Moses Approves the Work
32Thus was all the work of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation finished: and the children of Israel did according to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so did they.
33And they brought the tabernacle to Moses, the tent, and all its furniture, its buttons, its boards, its bars, and its pillars, and its sockets,
34And the covering of rams' skins dyed red, and the covering of badgers' skins, and the vail of the covering,
35The ark of the testimony, and its staffs, and the mercy-seat,
36The table, and all its vessels, and the show-bread,
37The pure candlestick, with its lamps, even with the lamps to be set in order, and all its vessels, and the oil for light,
38And the golden altar, and the anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and the hanging for the tabernacle-door,
39The brazen altar, and its grate of brass, its staffs, and all its vessels, the laver and its foot,
40The hangings of the court, its pillars, and its sockets, and the hanging for the court-gate, its cords, and its pins, and all the vessels of the service of the tabernacle, for the tent of the congregation,
41The clothes of service to do service in the holy place, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and his sons' garments, to minister in the priest's office.
42According to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so the children of Israel made all the work.
43And Moses looked upon all the work, and behold, they had done it as the LORD had commanded, even so had they done it: and Moses blessed them.
