The art of embroidery was known to the Jews ( Exodus 26:36 ; 35:35 ; 38:23 ; Judges 5:30 ; Psalms 45:14 ). The skill of the women in this art was seen in the preparation of the sacerdotal robes of the high priest ( Exodus 28 ). It seems that the art became hereditary in certain families ( 1 Chronicles 4:21 ). The Assyrians were also noted for their embroidered robes ( Ezekiel 27:24 ).
