Exodus 29:1-46

1 ¶ And this is what thou shalt do unto them to sanctify them that they shall be my priests: Take one young bullock and two perfect rams 2 and unleavened bread and unleavened cakes tempered with oil and unleavened wafers anointed with oil, which thou shalt make of wheat flour. 3 And thou shalt put them into a basket and offer them in the basket with the bullock and the two rams. 4 And Aaron and his sons thou shalt bring unto the door of the tabernacle of the testimony and shalt wash them with water. 5 And thou shalt take the garments and clothe Aaron with the coat and the robe of the ephod and the ephod and the pectoral and gird him with the special girdle of the ephod; 6 and thou shalt put the mitre upon his head and put the crown of holiness upon the mitre. 7 Then shalt thou take the anointing oil and pour it upon his head and anoint him. 8 And thou shalt bring his sons and put coats upon them. 9 And thou shalt gird them with girdles, Aaron and his sons, and bind the tiaras on them; and the priest’s office shall be theirs for a perpetual statute; and thou shalt fill the hands Aaron and his sons. 10 And thou shalt cause the bullock to be brought before the tabernacle of the testimony, and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands upon the head of the bullock. 11 And thou shalt kill the bullock before the LORD by the door of the tabernacle of the testimony. 12 And thou shalt take of the blood of the bullock and put it upon the horns of the altar with thy finger and pour all the remaining blood beside the bottom of the altar. 13 And thou shalt take all the fat that covers the intestines and the caul that is above the liver and the two kidneys and the fat that is upon them and burn them upon the altar. 14 But the flesh of the bullock and his skin and his dung shalt thou burn with fire outside the camp; it is sin. 15 Thou shalt likewise take one ram, and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands upon the head of the ram. 16 And thou shalt slay the ram, and thou shalt take his blood and sprinkle it round about upon the altar. 17 And thou shalt cut the ram in pieces and wash his intestines and his legs and put them upon his pieces and upon his head. 18 And thou shalt burn the whole ram upon the altar: it is a burnt offering unto the LORD: it is a sweet savour, an offering on fire unto the LORD. 19 And thou shalt take the other ram, and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands upon the head of the ram. 20 Then shalt thou kill the ram and take of his blood and put it upon the tip of the right ear of Aaron and upon the tip of the right ears of his sons and upon the thumb of their right hands and upon the great toe of their right feet and sprinkle the blood upon the altar round about. 21 And thou shalt take of the blood that shall be upon the altar and of the anointing oil and sprinkle it upon Aaron and upon his garments and upon his sons and upon their garments, and he shall be sanctified, and his garments and his sons and his sons’ garments with him. 22 Then thou shalt take of the ram the fat and the tail and the fat that covers the intestines and the caul above the liver and the two kidneys and the fat that is upon them and the right shoulder, for it is a ram of consecrations, 23 Also one large loaf of bread and one cake of oiled bread and one wafer out of the basket of the unleavened bread that is before the LORD; 24 and thou shalt put all this in the hands of Aaron and in the hands of his sons and shalt lift them up and wave them before the LORD. 25 Then thou shalt take them from their hands and burn them upon the altar upon the burnt offering, for a sweet savour before the LORD. It is an offering on fire unto the LORD. 26 And thou shalt take the breast of the ram of the consecrations, which is of Aaron and wave it for a waved offering before the LORD; and it shall be thy part. 27 And thou shalt set apart the breast of the waved offering and the shoulder of the sanctification, that which was waved and that which was sanctified of the ram of the consecrations of Aaron and of his sons; 28 and it shall be for Aaron and for his sons by a perpetual statute of the sons of Israel, for it is something set apart, and it shall be set apart of the sons of Israel of the sacrifice of their peace offerings; it shall be something of theirs set apart unto the LORD. 29 And the holy garments of Aaron shall be his sons’ after him, to be anointed with them and to be consecrated with them. 30 And for seven days the priest of his sons, who in his stead shall come into the tabernacle of the testimony, shall put them on to serve in the sanctuary. 31 And thou shalt take the ram of the consecrations and cook his flesh in the holy place. 32 And Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram and the bread that is in the basket by the door of the tabernacle of the testimony. 33 And they shall eat those things with which they were reconciled, to fill their hands to be sanctified; but a stranger shall not eat thereof because they are holiness. 34 And if any of the flesh of the consecrations or of the bread remains unto the morning, then thou shalt burn the remainder with fire; it shall not be eaten, because it is holiness. 35 And thus shalt thou do unto Aaron and to his sons, according to all the things which I have commanded thee; for seven days shalt thou consecrate them. 36 And thou shalt sacrifice a bullock every day for reconciliation of sin; and thou shalt remove the sin from the altar, and thou shalt anoint it to sanctify it. 37 For seven days thou shalt reconcile the altar and sanctify it; and it shall be a most holy altar; whatever touches the altar shall be made holy. 38 ¶ Now this is that which thou shalt offer upon the altar: two lambs of the first year every day continually. 39 The one lamb thou shalt offer in the morning, and the other lamb thou shalt offer at evening. 40 Moreover a tenth ephah of flour mingled with the fourth part of a hin of beaten oil and the fourth part of a hin of wine with each lamb. 41 And thou shalt offer the other lamb at evening, doing according to the present of the morning and according to its drink offering thereof, for a sweet savour, an offering on fire unto the LORD. 42 This shall be a continual burnt offering throughout your ages at the door of the tabernacle of the testimony before the LORD, where I will concert with you, to speak there unto you. 43 And there I will testify of myself unto the sons of Israel, and the place shall be sanctified with my glory. 44 And I will sanctify the tabernacle of the testimony and the altar; I will likewise sanctify both Aaron and his sons that they may be my priests. 45 And I will dwell among the sons of Israel and shall be their God. 46 And they shall know that I am the LORD their God, that brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I may dwell among them; I am the LORD your God.

2 Samuel 6:14

Exodus 39:1-43

1 ¶ And of the blue and purple and scarlet, they made the clothing of the ministry, to minister in the sanctuary, and in the same manner they made the holy garments for Aaron; as the LORD had commanded Moses. 2 He also made the ephod of gold, blue, purple, scarlet, and fine twined linen. 3 And they beat the gold into thin plates and cut it into wires to work it in the blue and in the purple and in the scarlet and in the fine linen, with cunning work. 4 They made the shoulder pieces for it to couple it together; by the two edges was it coupled together. 5 And the special girdle of his ephod, that was over it, was of the same, according to the work thereof: of gold, blue, purple, scarlet, and fine twined linen as the LORD had commanded Moses. 6 And they wrought onyx stones inclosed in settings of gold, graven, as seals are graven, with the names of the sons of Israel. 7 And he put them on the shoulders of the ephod that they should be stones for a memorial to the sons of Israel, as the LORD had commanded Moses. 8 He also made the pectoral of cunning work, like the work of the ephod of gold, blue, purple, scarlet, and fine twined linen. 9 It was square; they made the pectoral double; a span was the length thereof and a span the breadth thereof, being doubled. 10 And they set in it four orders of stones. The order was a ruby, an emerald, and a chrysolite: this was the first order. 11 The second order, a carbuncle, a sapphire, and a diamond. 12 The third order, a topaz, a turquoise, and an amethyst. 13 And the fourth order, a tarshish (or beryl), an onyx, and a jasper; they were set and inclosed in their settings of gold. 14 The stones were in agreement with the names of the sons of Israel, twelve, in agreement with their names, like the engravings of a seal, each one in agreement with his name, according to the twelve tribes. 15 They also made the small chains upon the pectoral of wreathen work of pure gold. 16 In the same manner they made two settings of gold and two gold rings and put the two rings in the two ends of the pectoral. 17 And they put the two wreathen chains of gold in those two rings on the ends of the pectoral. 18 And the two ends of the two wreathen chains they fastened in the two settings, which they put on the shoulder pieces of the ephod, on the front part of it. 19 And they made two rings of gold and put them on the two ends of the pectoral upon the border of it, which was on the lower side of the ephod. 20 And they made two other golden rings and put them on the two sides of the ephod underneath toward the front part of it, in the front of its coupling, above the special girdle of the ephod. 21 And they bound the pectoral by its rings to the rings of the ephod with a blue lace, that it might be above the special girdle of the ephod and that the pectoral might not be loosed from the ephod, as the LORD had commanded Moses. 22 And he made the robe of the ephod of woven work, all of blue, 23 with its collar in the midst of the robe, as the collar of a habergeon, with a band round about the collar that it should not rend. 24 And they made upon the hems of the robe pomegranates of blue, purple, scarlet, and twined linen. 25 They also made the bells of pure gold and put the bells between the pomegranates upon the hem of the robe, round about between the pomegranates; 26 A bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, round about the hem of the robe to minister in, as the LORD commanded Moses. 27 And they made the coats of fine linen of woven work for Aaron and for his sons, 28 likewise the mitre of fine linen and the decorations of the tiaras of fine linen and the linen underwear of fine twined linen, 29 also the girdle of fine twined linen and blue and purple and scarlet of needlework, as the LORD commanded Moses. 30 And they made the open flower, the crown of holiness, of pure gold and wrote upon it a writing, like to the engravings of a seal, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD. 31 And they tied unto it a lace of blue to fasten it over the mitre, as the LORD had commanded Moses. 32 ¶ Thus was all the work of the tabernacle, the tabernacle of the testimony finished, and the sons of Israel did according to all that the LORD had commanded Moses, so did they. 33 And they brought the tabernacle unto Moses, the tabernacle and all its furniture, its hooks, its boards, its bars and its pillars and its sockets, 34 and the covering of rams’ skins dyed red and the covering of badgers’ skins and the veil of the curtain, 35 the ark of the testimony and its staves, and the seat of reconciliation, 36 the table and all its vessels, and the showbread, 37 the pure lampstand with its lamps, even with the lamps to be set in order, and all its vessels and the oil for light, 38 the golden altar and the anointing oil and the aromatic incense and the hanging for the tabernacle door. 39 The brasen altar with its grate of brass, its staves, and all its vessels, and the laver and its base. 40 The hangings of the court, its pillars and its sockets, and the hanging for the court gate, its cords and its stakes, and all the vessels of the service of the tabernacle, for the tabernacle of the testimony, 41 the clothing of service for ministry in the sanctuary, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest and his sons’ garments, to minister in the priesthood. 42 According to all that the LORD had commanded Moses, so the sons of Israel made all the work. 43 And Moses looked upon all the work, and, behold, they had done it as the LORD had commanded, even so had they done it; and Moses blessed them.

Exodus 28:1-43

1 ¶ And cause Aaron, thy brother, to come unto thee with his sons, from among the sons of Israel, that they may be my priests, even Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron’s sons. 2 And thou shalt make holy garments for Aaron, thy brother, for honour and for beauty. 3 And thou shalt speak unto all that are wise-hearted, whom I have filled with the Spirit of wisdom, that they may make Aaron’s garments to sanctify him, that he may be my priest. 4 And these are the garments which they shall make: the pectoral, the ephod, the robe, the broidered coat, the mitre, and the girdle. Therefore let them make the holy garments for Aaron, thy brother, and his sons, that they may be my priests. 5 And they shall take gold, blue, purple, scarlet, and fine linen, 6 ¶ and they shall make the ephod of gold, blue, purple, scarlet, and fine twined linen, with cunning work. 7 It shall have its two shoulderpieces joined at the two edges thereof, and so it shall be joined together. 8 And the special girdle of the ephod, which shall be over it, shall be of its same workmanship, of the same materials: of gold, blue, purple, scarlet and fine twined linen. 9 And thou shalt take two onyx stones and engrave on them the names of the sons of Israel: 10 Six of their names on one stone and the other six names of the rest on the other stone, according to their birth. 11 With the work of an engraver in stone, like the engravings of a seal, shalt thou engrave those two stones with the names of the sons of Israel; thou shalt make them to be set in settings of gold. 12 And thou shalt put the two stones upon the shoulders of the ephod for stones of memorial unto the sons of Israel, and Aaron shall bear their names before the LORD upon his two shoulders for a memorial. 13 And thou shalt make the settings of gold 14 and two small chains of pure gold; of wreathen work shalt thou make them and fasten the wreathen chains to the settings. 15 ¶ And in the same manner thou shalt make the pectoral of judgment with cunning work; after the work of the ephod thou shalt make it, of gold, blue, purple, scarlet, and of fine twined linen. 16 It shall be square and double; a span shall be the length thereof, and a span shall be the breadth thereof. 17 And thou shalt fill it with four rows of stones; The order shall be a ruby, an emerald, and a chrysolite; this shall be the first order. 18 And the second order shall be a carbuncle, a sapphire, and a diamond. 19 And the third order, a topaz, a turquoise, and an amethyst. 20 And the fourth row a tarshish (or beryl) and an onyx and a jasper; they shall be set in gold in their inclosings. 21 And those stones shall be in agreement with the names of the sons of Israel, twelve, in agreement with their names; each one in agreement with his name like the engravings of a seal; they shall be according to the twelve tribes. 22 And thou shalt also make upon the pectoral small chains of wreathen work of pure gold. 23 And thou shalt make upon the pectoral two rings of gold and shalt put the two rings on the two ends of the pectoral. 24 And thou shalt put the two wreathen chains of gold in the two rings which are on the ends of the pectoral. 25 And the other two ends of the two wreathen chains thou shalt fasten in the two settings and put them on the shoulderpieces of the ephod on the front of it. 26 Thou shalt also make two rings of gold, and thou shalt put them upon the two ends of the pectoral in the border thereof, which is in the side of the ephod inward. 27 Likewise two other rings of gold thou shalt make and shalt put them on the two sides of the ephod underneath, toward the front part thereof, over against the other coupling thereof, above the special girdle of the ephod. 28 And they shall bind the pectoral by its rings unto the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it may be above the special girdle of the ephod and that the pectoral not be loosed from the ephod. 29 And Aaron shall bear the names of the sons of Israel in the pectoral of judgment upon his heart when he goes in unto the sanctuary for a memorial before the LORD continually. 30 And thou shalt put in the pectoral of judgment Urim and Thummim, that they shall be upon Aaron’s heart when he goes in before the LORD; and Aaron shall always bear the judgment of the sons of Israel upon his heart before the LORD. 31 ¶ And thou shalt make the robe of the ephod all of blue. 32 And it shall have the collar of his head in the midst thereof, which shall have a binding of woven work round about it, as the collar of a habergeon, that it not be rent. 33 And beneath upon the hem of it, thou shalt make pomegranates of blue and of purple and of scarlet round about the hem thereof and bells of gold between them round about. 34 A golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a pomegranate upon the hem of the robe round about. 35 And it shall be upon Aaron to minister, and his sound shall be heard when he goes in unto the sanctuary before the LORD and when he comes out, that he not die. 36 Thou shalt also make an open flower of pure gold and engrave upon it the engravings of a seal, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD. 37 And thou shalt put it on with a blue lace that it may be upon the mitre; upon the forefront of the mitre it shall be. 38 And it shall be upon Aaron’s forehead that Aaron may bear the iniquity of the holy things, which the sons of Israel shall sanctify in all their holy gifts; and it shall be always upon his forehead that they may find grace before the LORD. 39 And thou shalt embroider the coat of fine linen, and thou shalt make the mitre of fine linen, and thou shalt make the girdle of needlework. 40 ¶ And for Aaron’s sons thou shalt make coats; thou shalt also make girdles for them, and tiaras shalt thou make for them, for honour and for beauty. 41 And with these thou shalt clothe Aaron, thy brother, and his sons with him and shalt anoint them and fill their hands and sanctify them that they may be my priests. 42 And thou shalt make them linen underwear to cover their nakedness; they shall reach from the loins even unto the thighs; 43 And they shall be upon Aaron and upon his sons when they enter into the tabernacle of the testimony or when they come near unto the altar to serve in the sanctuary that they not bear iniquity and die: This shall be a perpetual statute unto him and his seed after him.
