The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 Vestments. Using the blue, purple, and scarlet fabrics, they made the woven vestments for ministering in the Sanctuary. Also they made the sacred vestments for Aaron, as God had commanded Moses. 1 From the blue, purple and scarlet yarn they made woven garments for ministering in the sanctuary. They also made sacred garments for Aaron, as the LORD commanded Moses.
2 Ephod. They made the Ephod using gold and blue, purple, and scarlet fabrics and finely twisted linen. 2 They made the ephod of gold, and of blue, purple and scarlet yarn, and of finely twisted linen.
3 They hammered out gold leaf and sliced it into threads that were then worked into designs in the blue, purple, and scarlet fabric and fine linen. 3 They hammered out thin sheets of gold and cut strands to be worked into the blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen--the work of a skilled craftsman.
4 They made shoulder pieces fastened at the two ends. 4 They made shoulder pieces for the ephod, which were attached to two of its corners, so it could be fastened.
5 The decorated band was made of the same material - gold, blue, purple, and scarlet material, and of fine twisted linen - and of one piece with it, just as God had commanded Moses. 5 Its skillfully woven waistband was like it--of one piece with the ephod and made with gold, and with blue, purple and scarlet yarn, and with finely twisted linen, as the LORD commanded Moses.
6 They mounted the onyx stones in a setting of filigreed gold and engraved the names of the sons of Israel on them, 6 They mounted the onyx stones in gold filigree settings and engraved them like a seal with the names of the sons of Israel.
7 then fastened them on the shoulder pieces of the Ephod as memorial stones for the Israelites, just as God had commanded Moses. 7 Then they fastened them on the shoulder pieces of the ephod as memorial stones for the sons of Israel, as the LORD commanded Moses.
8 Breastpiece. They made a Breastpiece designed like the Ephod from gold, blue, purple, and scarlet material and fine twisted linen. 8 They fashioned the breastpiece--the work of a skilled craftsman. They made it like the ephod: of gold, and of blue, purple and scarlet yarn, and of finely twisted linen.
9 Doubled, the Breastpiece was nine inches square. 9 It was square--a span long and a span wide--and folded double.
10 They mounted four rows of precious gemstones on it. First row: carnelian, topaz, emerald. 10 Then they mounted four rows of precious stones on it. In the first row there was a ruby, a topaz and a beryl;
11 Second row: ruby, sapphire, crystal. 11 in the second row a turquoise, a sapphire and an emerald;
12 Third row: jacinth, agate, amethyst. 12 in the third row a jacinth, an agate and an amethyst;
13 Fourth row: beryl, onyx, jasper. 13 in the fourth row a chrysolite, an onyx and a jasper. They were mounted in gold filigree settings.
14 The twelve stones corresponded to the names of the sons of Israel, twelve names engraved as on a seal, one for each of the twelve tribes. 14 There were twelve stones, one for each of the names of the sons of Israel, each engraved like a seal with the name of one of the twelve tribes.
15 They made braided chains of pure gold for the Breastpiece, like cords. 15 For the breastpiece they made braided chains of pure gold, like a rope.
16 They made two settings of gold filigree and two rings of gold, put the two rings at the two ends of the Breastpiece, 16 They made two gold filigree settings and two gold rings, and fastened the rings to two of the corners of the breastpiece.
17 and fastened the two ends of the cords to the two rings at the end of the Breastpiece. 17 They fastened the two gold chains to the rings at the corners of the breastpiece,
18 Then they fastened the cords to the settings of filigree, attaching them to the shoulder pieces of the Ephod in front. 18 and the other ends of the chains to the two settings, attaching them to the shoulder pieces of the ephod at the front.
19 Then they made two rings of gold and fastened them to the two ends of the Breastpiece on its inside edge facing the Ephod. 19 They made two gold rings and attached them to the other two corners of the breastpiece on the inside edge next to the ephod.
20 They made two more rings of gold and fastened them in the front of the Ephod to the lower part of the two shoulder pieces, near the seam above the decorated band of the Ephod. 20 Then they made two more gold rings and attached them to the bottom of the shoulder pieces on the front of the ephod, close to the seam just above the waistband of the ephod.
21 The Breastpiece was fastened by running a cord of blue through its rings to the rings of the Ephod so that it rested secure on the decorated band of the Ephod and wouldn't come loose, just as God had commanded Moses. 21 They tied the rings of the breastpiece to the rings of the ephod with blue cord, connecting it to the waistband so that the breastpiece would not swing out from the ephod--as the LORD commanded Moses.
22 Robe. They made the robe for the Ephod entirely of blue. 22 They made the robe of the ephod entirely of blue cloth--the work of a weaver--
23 The opening of the robe at the center was like a collar, the edge hemmed so that it wouldn't tear. 23 with an opening in the center of the robe like the opening of a collar, and a band around this opening, so that it would not tear.
24 On the hem of the robe they made pomegranates of blue, purple, and scarlet material and fine twisted linen. 24 They made pomegranates of blue, purple and scarlet yarn and finely twisted linen around the hem of the robe.
25 They also made bells of pure gold and alternated the bells and pomegranates 25 And they made bells of pure gold and attached them around the hem between the pomegranates.
26 - a bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate - all around the hem of the robe that was worn for ministering, just as God had commanded Moses. 26 The bells and pomegranates alternated around the hem of the robe to be worn for ministering, as the LORD commanded Moses.

30 They made the plate, the sacred crown, of pure gold and engraved on it as on a seal: "Holy to God." 30 They made the plate, the sacred diadem, out of pure gold and engraved on it, like an inscription on a seal: holy to the LORD.
31 They attached a blue cord to it and fastened it to the turban, just as God had commanded Moses. 31 Then they fastened a blue cord to it to attach it to the turban, as the LORD commanded Moses.
