The Ephod
(Exodus 28:6–14)

1Moreouer they made garments of ministration to minister in the Sanctuarie of blewe silke, and purple, and skarlet: they made also the holy garments for Aaron, as the Lord had comanded Moses.

2So he made the Ephod of gold, blewe silke, and purple, and skarlet, and fine twined linen. 3And they did beate the golde into thinne plates, and cut it into wiers, to worke it in ye blewe silke and in the purple, and in the skarlet, and in the fine linen, with broydred worke. 4For the which they made shoulders to couple together: for it was closed by the two edges thereof. 5And the broydred garde of his Ephod that was vpon him, was of the same stuffe, and of like worke: euen of golde, of blewe silke, and purple, & skarlet, and fine twined linen, as the Lorde had commanded Moses.

6And they wrought two Onix stones closed in ouches of golde, and graued, as signets are grauen, with the names of the children of Israel, 7And put them on the shoulders of the Ephod, as stones for a remembrance of the children of Israel, as the Lorde had commaunded Moses.

The Breastpiece
(Exodus 28:15–30)

8Also he made the brestplate of broydred worke like the worke of the Ephod: to wit, of gold, blewe silke, and purple, and skarlet, and fine twined linen. 9They made the brest plate double, & it was square, an hand breadth long, & an hand breadth broad: it was also double. 10And they filled it with foure rowes of stones. The order was thus, a Rubie, a Topaze, & a Carbuncle in the first rowe: 11And in the seconde rowe, an Emeraude, a Saphir, and a Diamond: 12Also in the thirde rowe, a Turkeis, an Achate, and an Hematite: 13Likewise in the fourth rowe, a Chrysolite, an Onix, and a Iasper: closed and set in ouches of golde. 14So the stones were according to the names of the children of Israel, euen twelue after their names, grauen like signets euery one after his name according to the twelue tribes. 15After, they made vpon the brest plate cheines at the endes, of wrethen worke and pure golde. 16They made also two bosses of golde, and two golde rings, and put the two rings in the two corners of the brest plate. 17And they put ye two wrethe cheines of gold in the two rings, in the corners of the brest plate. 18Also the two other endes of the two wrethen chaines they fastened in the two bosses, and put the on the shoulders of the Ephod vpon the forefront of it. 19Likewise they made two rings of gold, and put them in the two other corners of the brest plate vpon the edge of it, which was on the inside of the Ephod. 20They made also two other golden rings, & put them on the two sides of the Ephod, beneath on the foreside of it, & ouer against his coupling aboue the broydered garde of the Ephod. 21Then they fastened the brest plate by his rings vnto the rings of the Ephod, with a lace of blewe silke, that it might bee fast vpon the broydered garde of the Ephod, and that the brest plate should not be loosed fro the Ephod, as the Lorde had commanded Moses.

Additional Priestly Garments
(Exodus 28:31–43)

22Moreouer, he made the robe of the Ephod of wouen worke, altogether of blewe silke. 23And the hole of the robe was in the middes of it, as the coller of an habergeon, with an edge about the coller, that it shoulde not rent. 24And they made vpon the skirts of the robe pomegranates, of blewe silke, and purple, and skarlet, and fine linen twined. 25They made also belles of pure gold and put the belles betweene the pomegranates vpon the skirtes of the robe rounde about betweene the pomegranates. 26A bel and a pomegranate, a bel & a pomegranate round about the skirts of the robe to minister in, as the Lord had commanded Moses.

27After, they made coates of fine linen, of wouen worke for Aaron and for his sonnes. 28And the miter of fine linen, and goodly bonnets of fine linen, and linen breeches of fine twined linen, 29And the girdle of fine twined linen, and of blew silke, and purple, and skarlet, euen of needle worke, as the Lord had commanded Moses.

30Finally they made the plate for the holy crowne of fine golde, and wrote vpon it a superscription like to the grauing of a signet, HOLINES TO THE LORD. 31And they tied vnto it a lace of blewe silke to fasten it on hie vpon the miter, as the Lorde had commanded Moses.
