And they shall make holye garmentes for Aaron thy brother and his sonnes that he maye mynynister vnto me. 5 And thei shal take therto gold iacincte, scarlet, purpull and bysse. 6 And they shall make the Ephod of golde, iacincte, scarlet, purpull and whyte twined bysse with brothered worke. 7 The two sides shall come together, closed vp in the edges therof. 8 And the gyrdell of the Ephod shalbe of the same worckemanshyppe and of the same stuffe, euen of golde, iacyncte, scarlette, purpull and twyned bysse. 9 And thou shalt take two onyx stones, and graue in them the names of the chyldren of Israell: 10 sixe in the one stone, the other sixe in the other stone: accordynge to the order of their birth. 11 After the worcke of a stonegrauer euen as signettes are grauen, shalt thou graue the .ij. stones with the names of the chyldren of Israel, and shalt make them to be set in ouches of golde. 12 And thou shalte put the two stones vpon the two shoulders of the Ephod and they shalbe stones of remembraunce vnto the chyldren of Israel. And Aaron shal beare their names before the Lorde vpon his two shulders for a remembrance. 13 And thou shalt make hokes of gold 14 and two cheynes of fine golde: lynkeworke and wrethed, and fasten the wrethed cheyns to the hokes. 15 And thou shale make the brestlappe of iudgement with brodered worke: euen after the worcke of the Ephod shalte thou make it: of gold, iacincte, sarlet, purple and twined bisse shalt thou make it. 16 For square it shalbe and double, an hande brede longe and an hande brede brode. 17 And thou shalt fyll it wyth .iiij. rowes of stones.

And thou shalt make, lyke wyse vpon, the brestlap two ringes of gold, 23 & put them on the edges of the brestlap. 24 & put the .ii. wrethen cheynes of gold in the .ij. rynges which are in the edges of the brestlappe. 25 And the .ii. endes of the .ij. cheyns thou shalte fasten in the .ij. rynges, and put them vpon the shoulders of the Ephode on the foresyde of it. 26 And thou shal yet make .ij. rynges of golde, and put them in the .ij. edges of the brestlappe euen in the borders therof towarde the insyde of the Ephod that is ouer agaynst it. 27 And yet .ij. other rynges of golde thou shalt make, & put them on the .ij. sides of the Ephod, beneth ouer agaynste the brestlappe alowe where the sydes are ioyned together vpon the bordered gyrdel of the Ephod. 28 And they shall bynde the brestlappe by hys ringes vnto the ringes of the Ephod with a lace of Iacyncte, that it maye lye close vnto the brodered gyrdell of the Ephod, that the brestlappe be not loosed from the Ephod. 29 And Aaron shal beare the names of the chyldren of Israel in the brestlappe of iudgement vpon hys hert, when he goeth into the holy place for a remembraunce before the Lorde alwaye. 30 And thou shalt put in the brestlappe of iudgement Vrim & Thumim: that they be euen vpon Aarons hert when he goeth in before the Lord & Aaron shall beare the ensample of the chyldren of Israell vpon his herte before the Lorde alwaye. 31 And thou shalt make the tunycle vnto the Ephod altogether of Iacyncte. 32 And there shalbe an hole for the head in the middes of it, and let there be a bonde of wouen worke rounde aboute the coller of it (as it were the coller of a partlet) that it rent not. 33 And beneth vpon the hemme, thou shalt make pomgranates of Iacyncte, of scarlette, and of purpull rounde about the hemme, 34 and belles of golde betwene them rounde aboute: that there be euer a golden bell and a pomgranate, a golden bell and a pomgranate rounde aboute vpon the hem of the tunicle. 35 And Aaron shal haue it vpon him when he ministreth, that the sounde may be herde when he goeth into the holy place before the Lorde and when he cometh out, that he dye not. 36 And thou shalt make a plate of pure gold and graue theron (as signettes are grauen) The holynes of the Lord, 37 & put it on a lace of Iacyncte & tye it vnto the mytre, vpon the forefront of it, 38 that it be vppon Aarons forehead: that Aaron beare the sinne of the holy thinges whiche the chyldren of Israell haue halowed in al their holy giftes. And it shalbe alwayes vppon Aarons forehead, that they maye be accepted before the Lord. 39 And thou shalt make an albe of bysse, and thou shalt make a mytre of bysse & a gyrdell of nedle worde. 40 And thou shalt make for Aarons sonnes also cotes, gyrdels and bonettes honourable and glorious, 41 and thou shalt put them vppon Aaron thy brother and on hys sonnes wyth him & shalt anoynte them & fill their handes and consecrate them that they may ministre vnto me. 42 And thou shalte make them lynnen breches too couer their preuityes: from the loynes vnto the thyes shall they reach. 43 And they shalbe vpon Aaron & his sonnes, when they go into the tabernacle of witnesse, or when they go vnto the aultare to ministre in holynes, that they beare no sinne and so dye. And it shalbe a lawe for euer vnto Aaron & his sede after hym.
