Bible verses about "ephod" | MLV

Exodus 29:1-46

1 And this is the thing that you will do to them to sanctify them, to minister to me in the priest's office: Take one young bullock and two rams without blemish, 2 and unleavened bread and cakes unleavened mingled with oil and wafers unleavened anointed with oil, of fine wheaten flour will you make them, 3 and you will put them into one basket and bring them in the basket, with the bullock and the two rams.
4 And Aaron and his sons you will bring to the door of the tent of meeting and will wash them with water. 5 And you will take the garments and put upon Aaron the tunic and the robe of the ephod and the ephod and the breastplate and gird him with the skillfully woven band of the ephod. 6 And you will set the miter upon his head and put the holy crown upon the miter. 7 Then you will take the anointing oil and pour it upon his head and anoint him. 8 And you will bring his sons and put tunics upon them. 9 And you will gird them with sashes, Aaron and his sons and bind head-coverings on them. And they will have the priesthood by a everlasting statute. And you will consecrate Aaron and his sons.
10 And you will bring the bullock before the tent of meeting. And Aaron and his sons will lay their hands upon the head of the bullock, 11 and you will kill the bullock before Jehovah, at the door of the tent of meeting. 12 And you will take of the blood of the bullock and put it upon the horns of the altar with your finger and you will pour out all the blood at the base of the altar. 13 And you will take all the fat that covers the inwards and the lobe of 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 its skin and it manure, you will burn with fire outside the camp. It is a sin offering.
15 You will also take the one ram and Aaron and his sons will lay their hands upon the head of the ram. 16 And you will kill* the ram and you will take its blood and sprinkle it all around upon the altar. 17 And you will cut the ram into its pieces and wash its inwards and its legs and put them with its pieces and with its head, 18 and you will burn the whole ram upon the altar. It is a burnt offering to Jehovah. It is a sweet aroma, an offering made by fire to Jehovah.
19 And you will take the other ram and Aaron and his sons will lay their hands upon the head of the ram. 20 Then you will kill the ram and take of its blood and put it upon the tip of the right ear of Aaron and upon the tip of the right ear of his sons and upon the thumb of their right hand and upon the great toe of their right foot and sprinkle the blood upon the altar all around. 21 And you will take of the blood that is upon the altar and of the anointing oil and sprinkle it upon Aaron and upon his garments and upon his sons and upon the garments of his sons with him. And he will be made holy and his garments and his sons and his sons' garments with him.
22 Also you will take from the ram the fat and the fat tail and the fat that covers the inwards and the lobe of the liver and the two kidneys and the fat that is upon them and the right thigh (for it is a ram of consecration), 23 and one loaf of bread and one cake of oiled bread and one wafer, out of the basket of unleavened bread that is before Jehovah, 24 and you will put the whole upon the hands of Aaron and upon the hands of his sons and will wave them for a wave offering before Jehovah. 25 And you will take them from their hands and burn them on the altar upon the burnt offering, for a sweet aroma before Jehovah. It is an offering made by fire to Jehovah.
26 And you will take the breast of Aaron's ram of consecration and wave it for a wave offering before Jehovah and it will be your portion. 27 And you will sanctify the breast of the wave offering and the thigh of the offering, which is waved and which is heaved up, of the ram of consecration, even of what is for Aaron and of what is for his sons, 28 and it will be for Aaron and his sons as their everlasting portion from the sons of Israel, becauseit is a heave offering. And it will be a heave offering from the sons of Israel of the sacrifices of their peace offerings, even their heave offering to Jehovah.
29 And the holy garments of Aaron will be for his sons after him, to be anointed in them and to be consecrated in them. 30 Seven days will the son that is priest instead of him put them on, when he comes into the tent of meeting to minister in the holy place.
31 And you will take the ram of consecration and boil its flesh in a holy place. 32 And Aaron and his sons will eat the flesh of the ram and the bread that is in the basket, at the door of the tent of meeting. 33 And they will eat those things with which atonement was made, to consecrate and to sanctify them, but a stranger will not eat of it, because they are holy. 34 And if any of the flesh of the consecration, or of the bread, remains to the morning, then you will burn the remainder with fire. It will not be eaten, because it is holy.
35 And thus you will do to Aaron and to his sons, according to all that I have commanded you. Seven days you will consecrate them. 36 And every day you will offer the bullock of sin offering for atonement. And you will cleanse the altar when you make atonement for it and you will anoint it, to sanctify it. 37 Seven days you will make atonement for the altar and sanctify it. And the altar will be most holy. Whatever touches the altar will be holy.
38 Now this is what you will offer upon the altar: two lambs a year old day by day continually. 39 The one lamb you will offer in the morning and the other lamb you will offer at evening. 40 And with the one lamb a tenth part of an ephah of fine flour mingled with the fourth part of a hin of beaten oil and the fourth part of a hin of wine for a drink offering. 41 And the other lamb you will offer at evening and will do to it according to the meal offering of the morning and according to the drink offering of it, for a sweet aroma, an offering made by fire to Jehovah. 42 It will be a continual burnt offering throughout your* genealogy at the door of the tent of meeting before Jehovah, where I will meet with you*, to speak to you there.
43 And there I will meet with the sons of Israel and the tent will be made holy by my glory. 44 And I will sanctify the tent of meeting and the altar. I will also sanctify Aaron and his sons to minister to me in the priest's office. 45 And I will dwell among the sons of Israel and will be their God. 46 And they will know that I am Jehovah their God, who brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I might dwell among them. I am Jehovah their God.

Exodus 39:1-43

1 And of the blue and purple and scarlet, they made finely worked garments, for ministering in the holy place and made the holy garments for Aaron, as Jehovah commanded Moses.
2 And he made the ephod of gold, blue and purple and 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, the work of the skillful workman.
4 They made shoulder-pieces for it, joined together. It was joined together at the two ends. 5 And the skillfully woven band, that was upon it with which to gird it on, was of the same piece and like the work of it, of gold, of blue and purple and scarlet and fine twined linen, as Jehovah commanded Moses. 6 And they worked the onyx stones, enclosed in settings of gold, engraved with the engravings of a signet, according to the names of the sons of Israel. 7 And he put them on the shoulder-pieces of the ephod, to be stones of memorial for the sons of Israel, as Jehovah commanded Moses.
8 And he made the breastplate, the work of the skillful workman, like the work of the ephod, of gold, of blue and purple and scarlet and fine twined linen. 9 It was square. They made the breastplate double; a span was the length of it and a span the breadth of it, being double. 10 And they set four rows of stones in it. A row of ruby, topaz and carbuncle was the first row, 11 and the second row, an emerald, a sapphire and a diamond, 12 and the third row, a jacinth, an agate and an amethyst, 13 and the fourth row, a beryl, an onyx and a jasper. They were set in enclosures of gold in their settings.
14 And the stones were according to the names of the sons of Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet, each one according to his name, for the twelve tribes.
15 And they made upon the breastplate chains like cords, of corded work of pure gold. 16 And they made two settings of gold and two gold rings and put the two rings on the two ends of the breastplate. 17 And they put the two corded chains of gold in the two rings at the ends of the breastplate. 18 And the other two ends of the two corded chains they put on the two settings and put them on the shoulder-pieces of the ephod, in the forepart of it.
19 And they made two rings of gold and put them upon the two ends of the breastplate, upon the edge of it, which was toward the side of the ephod inward. 20 And they made two rings of gold and put them on the two shoulder-pieces of the ephod underneath, in the forepart of it, close by the coupling of it, above the skillfully woven band of the ephod. 21 And they bound the breastplate by the rings of it to the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it might be upon the skillfully woven band of the ephod and that the breastplate might not be loosed from the ephod, as Jehovah commanded Moses.
22 And he made the robe of the ephod of woven work, all of blue. 23 And the hole of the robe in the midst of it, as the hole of a coat of mail, with a binding all around the hole of it, that it should not be torn. 24 And they made upon the skirts of the robe pomegranates of blue and purple and scarlet, twined. 25 And they made bells of pure gold and put the bells between the pomegranates upon the skirts of the robe all around, between the pomegranates, 26 a bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, upon the skirts of the robe all around, to minister in, as Jehovah commanded Moses.
27 And they made the tunics of fine linen of woven work for Aaron and for his sons, 28 and the miter of fine linen and the turban of caps of fine linen and the linen breeches of fine twined linen, 29 and the sash of fine twined linen and blue and purple and scarlet, the work of the embroiderer, as Jehovah commanded Moses.
30 And they made the plate of the holy crown of pure gold and wrote upon it a writing, like the engravings of a signet, HOLY TO JEHOVAH. 31 And they tied to it a lace of blue, to fasten it upon the miter above, as Jehovah commanded Moses.
32 Thus was finished all the work of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting. And the sons of Israel did according to all that Jehovah commanded Moses, so did they.
33 And they brought the tabernacle to Moses, the tent and all its furniture: its clasps, its boards, it bars and its pillars and it sockets, 34 and the covering of rams' skins dyed red and the covering of certain skins and the veil of the screen, 35 the ark of the testimony and the staves of it and the mercy-seat, 36 the table, all the vessels of it and the showbread, 37 the pure lamp-stand, the lamps of it, even the lamps to be set in order and all the vessels of it and the oil for the light, 38 and the golden altar and the anointing oil and the sweet incense and the screen for the door of the tent, 39 the brazen altar and its grating of brass, its staves and all its vessels, the large-basin and its base, 40 the hangings of the court, its pillars and its sockets and the screen for the gate of the court, the cords of it and the pegs of it and all the instruments of the service of the tabernacle, for the tent of meeting, 41 the finely worked garments for ministering in the holy place and the holy garments for Aaron the priest and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest's office.
42 According to all that Jehovah commanded Moses, so the sons of Israel did all the work. 43 And Moses saw all the work, and behold, they had done it, as Jehovah had commanded, even so they had done it. And Moses blessed them.
