"Tell your brother Aaron to come to you, along with his sons Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar. Separate them from the other Israelites to serve me as priests.
Make holy clothes for your brother Aaron to give him honor and beauty.
Tell all the skilled craftsmen to whom I have given wisdom to make special clothes for Aaron -- clothes to show that he belongs to me so that he may serve me as a priest.
These are the clothes they must make: a chest covering, a holy vest, an outer robe, a woven inner robe, a turban, and a cloth belt. The craftsmen must make these holy clothes for your brother Aaron and his sons. Then they may serve me as priests.
The craftsmen must use gold and blue, purple and red thread, and fine linen.
"Use gold and blue, purple and red thread, and fine linen to make the holy vest; skilled craftsmen are to make it.
At each top corner of this holy vest there will be a pair of shoulder straps tied together over each shoulder.
"The craftsmen will very carefully weave a belt on the holy vest that is made with the same materials -- gold and blue, purple and red thread, and fine linen.
