you shall fset them in filigree settings of gold. 12 "You shall put the two stones on the shoulder pieces of the ephod, as stones of memorial for the sons of Israel, and Aaron shall 2bear their names before the LORD on his two shoulders 3for a memorial. 13 "4You shall make filigree settings of gold, 14 and two chains of pure gold ; you shall make them of twisted cordage work, and you shall put the corded chains on the filigree settings. 15 "5You shall make a gbreastpiece of judgment, the work of a skillful workman ; like the work of the ephod you shall make it: of gold, of hblue and purple and scarlet material and fine twisted linen you shall make it. 16 "It shall be square and folded double, a span iin length and a span jin width. 17 "You shall kmount on it four rows of stones ;

and Aaron shall carry the judgment of the sons of Israel over his heart before the LORD continually. 31 "9You shall make the robe of the ephod all of pblue. 32 "There shall be an opening qat its top in the middle of it; around its opening there shall be a binding of woven work, as like the opening of a coat of mail, so that it will not be torn. 33 "You shall make on its hem pomegranates of blue and purple and scarlet material, all around on its hem, and bells of gold between them all around : 34 a golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a pomegranate, all around on the hem of the robe. 35 "It shall be on Aaron rwhen he ministers ; and sits tinkling shall be heard when he enters and tleaves the holy place before the LORD, so that he will not die. 36 "You shall also make 10a plate of pure gold and shall engrave on it, like the engravings of a seal, '11Holy to the LORD.' 37 "You shall ufasten it on a vblue cord, and it shall be on the turban ; it shall be at the front of the turban. 38 "It shall be on Aaron's forehead, and Aaron shall w12take away the iniquity of the holy things which the sons of Israel consecrate, with regard to all their holy gifts ; and it shall always be on his forehead, that 13they may be accepted before the LORD. 39 "You shall weave 14the tunic of checkered work of fine linen, and shall make a turban of fine linen, and you shall make a sash, the work of a xweaver. 40 "For Aaron's sons you shall make 15tunics ; you shall also make sashes for them, and you shall make y16caps for them, for glory and for beauty. 41 "You shall put them on Aaron your brother and on his sons with him; and you shall 17anoint them and zordain them and consecrate them, that they may serve Me as priests. 42 "You shall make for them 18linen breeches to cover their bare flesh ; they shall aareach from the loins even to the thighs. 43 "They shall be on Aaron and on his sons when they enter the tent of meeting, or 19when they approach the altar to minister in the holy place, so that they do not incur bbguilt and die. 20It shall be a statute forever to him and to his ccdescendants after him.
