Exodus chapter .xxxix.

And of the jacinth, scarlet, purple and twined byss, they made the vestments of ministration to do service in that holy place, and made the holy garments that pertained to Aaron, as the LORD commanded Moses. And they made the Ephod of gold, jacinth, scarlet, purple, and twined byss. And they did beat the gold into thin plates, and cut it into wires: to work it in the jacinth, scarlet, purple, and the byss, with broidered work. And they made the sides come together, and closed them up by the two edges. And the broidering of the girdle that was upon it, was of the same stuff and after the same work of gold, jacinth, scarlet, purple and twined byss, as the LORD commanded Moses. And they wrought Onyx stones closed in ouches of gold and graved as signets are graven with the names of the children of Israel, and put them on the shoulders of the Ephod that they should be a remembrance of the children of Israel, as the LORD commanded Moses. And they made the brestlap of cunning work, after the work of the Ephod: even of gold, Iacinct, scarlet, purple and twined byss And they made it four square and double, an hand breadth long and an hand breadth broad. And they filled it with four rows of stones (the first row: Sardios, a Topas and Smaragdus: the second row: a Ruby, a Sapphire and a Diamond. The third row: Ligurius, an Achat and an Amethyst. The fourth row: a Turquoise, an onyx and a Iasper) closed in ouches of gold in their inclosures. And the twelve stones were graven as signets with the names of the children of Israel: every stone with his name, according to the twelve tribes. And they made upon the breastlap, two fastening chains of wreathen work and pure gold. And they made two hooks of gold and two gold rings, and put the two rings upon the two corners of the breastlap. And they put the two chains of gold in the two rings, in the corners of the breastlap. And the two ends of the two chains they fastened in the two hooks, and put them on the shoulders of the Ephod upon the forefront of it. And they made two other rings of gold and put them on the two other corners of the breastlap along upon the edge of it, toward the inside of the Ephod that is over against it. And they made yet two other gold rings, and put them on the two sides of the Ephod, beneath on the fore side of it: even where the sides go together, above upon the broidering of the Ephod, and they strained the breastlap by his rings unto the rings of the Ephod, with laces of jacinth, that it might lie fast upon the broidering of the Ephod, and should not be lowsed from of the Ephod: as the LORD commanded Moses. And he made the tunicle unto the Ephod of woven work and all together of jacinth, and the head of the tunicle was in the middest of it as the collar of a partlet, with a band round about the collar, that it should not rent. And they made beneath upon the hem of the tunicle: pomegranates of jacinth, scarlet, purple, and twined byss. And they made little bells of pure gold, and put them among the pomegranates round about upon the edge of the tunicle, a bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate round about the hems of the tunicle to minister in, as the LORD commanded Moses. And they made coats of byss of woven work for Aaron and his sons, and a mitre of byss, and goodly bonnets of byss, and linen breeches of twined byss, and a girdle of twined byss, jacinth, scarlet and purple: even of needle work, as the LORD commanded Moses. And they made the plate of the holy crown of fine gold, and wrote upon it with graven work: the holiness of the LORD, and tied it to a lace of jacinth to fasten it on high upon the mitre, as the LORD commanded Moses.
Thus was all the work of the habitation of the tabernacle of witness, finished. And the children of Israel did, according to all that the LORD had commanded Moses. And they brought the habitation unto Moses: the tent and all his apparel thereof: the buttons, boards, bars, pillars and sockets: and the covering of rams' skins red, and the covering of taxus' skins, and the hanging vail, and the ark of witness with the staves thereof, and the mercyseat: the table and all the ordinance thereof, and the shewbread, and the pure candlestick, and the lamps prepared thereunto with all the vessels thereof, and the oil for lights, and the golden altar, and the anointing oil and the sweet cense, and the hanging of the tabernacle door, and the brasen altar, and the gridiron of brass longing thereunto with his bars and all his vessels, and the laver with his foot, and the hangings of the court with his pillars and sockets, and the hanging to the court gate, his boards and pins, and all the ordinance that serveth to the habitation of the tabernacle of witness, and the ministering vestments to serve in the holy place, and the holy vestments of Aaron the priest and his sons' raiments to minister in: according to all that the LORD commanded Moses: even so the children of Israel made all the work. And Moses beheld all the work: and see, they had done it even as the LORD commanded: and then Moses blessed them.
