1 This is the thing that thou shalt do unto them when thou hallowest them to be my priests. Take one ox and two rams that are without blemish, 2 and unleavened bread and cakes of sweet bread tempered with oil and wafers of sweet bread anointed with oil — of wheaten flour shalt thou make them - 3 and put them in a maund and bring them in the maund with the oil and the two rams. 4 And bring Aaron and his sons unto the door of the tabernacle of witness, and wash them with water, 5 and take the garments, and put upon Aaron: the strait coat, and the tunicle of the ephod, and the ephod and the breastlap: and girth them to him with the broidered girdle of the ephod. 6 And put the mitre upon his head and put the holy crown upon the mitre. 7 Then take the anointing oil and pour it upon his head and anoint him. 8 And bring his sons and put albes upon them, 9 and girth them with girdles: as well Aaron as his sons. And put the bonnets on them that the priest's office may be theirs for a perpetual law. And fill the hands of Aaron and of his sons, 10 and bring the ox before the tabernacle of witness. And let Aaron and his sons put their hands upon his head 11 and kill him before the LORD in the door of the tabernacle of witness. 12 And take of the blood of the ox and put it upon the horns of the altar with thy finger and pour all the blood upon the bottom of the altar, 13 and take all the fat that covereth the inwards, and the caul that is on the liver, and the two kidneys with the fat that is upon them: and burn them upon the altar. 14 But the flesh of the ox and his skin and his dung, shalt thou burn with fire, without the host. For it is a sin offering. 15 "Then take one of the rams, and let Aaron and his sons put their hands upon the head of the ram, 16 and cause him to be slain, and take of his blood, and sprinkle it round about upon the altar, 17 and cut the ram in pieces and wash the inwards of him and his legs, and put them unto the pieces and unto his head, 18 and burn the whole ram upon the altar. For it is a burnt offering unto the LORD, and a sweet savour of the LORD's sacrifice. 19 And take the other ram and let Aaron and his sons put their hands upon his head and let him then be killed. 20 And take of his blood and put it upon the tip of the right ear of Aaron and 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 Then take of the blood that is upon the altar and of the anointing oil, and sprinkle it upon Aaron and his vestments, and upon his sons and upon their garments also. Then is he and his clothes holy and his sons and their clothes holy also. 22 Then take the fat of the ram and his rump and the fat that covereth the inwards and the caul of the liver and, the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them and the right shoulder — for that ram is a full offering - 23 and a simnel of bread and a cake of oiled bread and a wafer out of the basket of sweet bread that is before the LORD, 24 and put all upon the hands of Aaron and on the hands of his sons: and wave them in and out, a wave offering unto the LORD. 25 Then take it from off their hands and burn it upon the altar: even upon the burnt offering, to be a savour of sweetness before the LORD. For it is a sacrifice unto the LORD. 26 Then take the breast of the ram that is Aaron's full offering and wave it, a wave offering before the LORD, and let that be thy part. 27 And sanctify the breast of the wave offering and the shoulder of the heave offering which is waved and heaved up of the ram which is the full offering of Aaron and of his sons. 28 And it shall be Aaron's and his sons' duty forever, of the children of Israel, for it is a heave offering. And the heave offering shall be the LORD's duty of the children of Israel: even of the sacrifice of their peace offerings which they heave unto the LORD. 29 "And the holy garments of Aaron shall be his sons' after him, to anoint them therein, and to fill their hands therein. 30 And that son that is priest in his stead after him, shall put them on seven days: that he go into the tabernacle of witness, to minister in the holy place. 31 Then take the ram that is the full offering and seethe his flesh in a holy place. 32 And Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of him, and the bread that is in the basket: even in the door of the tabernacle of witness. 33 And they shall eat them, because the atonement was made therewith to fill their hands and to sanctify them: but a stranger shall not eat thereof, because they are holy. 34 "If ought of the flesh of the full offerings, or of the bread remain unto the morning, thou shalt burn it with fire: for it shall not be eaten, because it is holy. 35 And see thou do unto Aaron and his sons, even so in all things as I have commanded thee: that thou fill their hands seven days 36 and offer every day an ox for a sin offering for to reconcile with all. And thou shalt hallow the altar when thou reconcilest it, and shalt anoint it to sanctify it. 37 Seven days thou shalt reconcile the altar and sanctify it, that it may be an altar most holy: so that no man may touch it but they that be consecrate. 38 This is that which thou shalt offer upon the altar: two lambs of one year old day by day forever, 39 the one thou shalt offer in the morning and the other at even. 40 And unto the one lamb take a tenth deal of 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 thou shalt offer at even and shalt do thereto according to the meat offering and drink offering in the morning, to be an odour of a sweet savour of the sacrifice of the LORD. 42 And it shall be a continual burnt offering among your children after you, in the door of the tabernacle of witness before the LORD, where I will meet you to speak unto you there. 43 There I will meet with the children of Israel, and will be sanctified in mine honour. 44 And I will sanctify the tabernacle of witness and the altar: and I will sanctify also both Aaron and his sons to be my priests. 45 And moreover, I will dwell among the children of Israel and will be their God. 46 And they shall know that I am the LORD their God that brought them out of the land of Egypt for to dwell among them: even I the LORD their God."

14 And David danced before the LORD with all his might, in a linen ephod gird unto him.
1 And of the jacinth, scarlet, purple and twined bysse, 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. 2 And they made the ephod of gold, jacinth, scarlet, purple, and twined bysse. 3 And they did beat the gold into thin plates, and cut it into wires: to work it in the jacinth, scarlet, purple, and the bysse, with broidered work. 4 And they made the sides come together, and closed them up by the two edges. 5 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 bysse, as the LORD commanded Moses. 6 And they wrought onyx stones closed in ouches of gold and graved as signets are graven with the names of the children of Israel, 7 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. 8 And they made the breastlap of cunning work, after the work of the ephod: even of gold, jacinth, scarlet, purple and twined bysse. 9 And they made it four square and double, a hand breadth long and a hand breadth broad. 10 And they filled it with four rows of stones — the first row: Sardius, a Topaz and Smaragdus; 11 the second row: a Ruby, a Sapphire and a Diamond; 12 the third row: Ligurius, an Agate and an Amethyst; 13 The fourth row: a Turquoise, an Onyx and a Jasper — closed in ouches of gold in their enclosures. 14 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. 15 And they made, upon the breastlap, two fastening chains of wreathen work and pure gold. 16 And they made two hooks of gold and two gold rings, and put the two rings upon the two corners of the breastlap. 17 And they put the two chains of gold in the two rings, in the corners of the breastlap. 18 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. 19 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. 20 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, 21 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 loosed from of the ephod: as the LORD commanded Moses. 22 And he made the tunicle unto the ephod of woven work and all together of jacinth, 23 and the head of the tunicle was in the midst of it as the collar of a partlet, with a band round about the collar, that it should not rend. 24 And they made beneath upon the hem of the tunicle: pomegranates of jacinth, scarlet, purple, and twined bysse. 25 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, 26 a bell and a pomegranate, round about the hems of the tunicle to minister in, as the LORD commanded Moses. 27 And they made coats of bysse of woven work for Aaron and his sons, 28 and a mitre of bysse, and goodly bonnets of bysse, and linen breeches of twined bysse, 29 and a girdle of twined bysse, jacinth, scarlet and purple: even of needle work, as the LORD commanded Moses. 30 And they made the plate of the holy crown of fine gold, and wrote upon it with graven work, "The holiness of the LORD," 31 and tied it to a lace of jacinth to fasten it on high upon the mitre, as the LORD commanded Moses. 32 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. 33 And they brought the habitation unto Moses: the tent and all his apparel thereof; the buttons, boards, bars, pillars and sockets, 34 and the covering of rams' skins red, and the covering of taxus' skins, and the hanging veil, 35 and the ark of witness with the staves thereof, and the mercy seat: 36 the table and all the ordinance thereof, and the shewbread, 37 and the pure candlestick, and the lamps prepared thereunto with all the vessels thereof, and the oil for lights, 38 and the golden altar, and the anointing oil and the sweet cense, and the hanging of the tabernacle door, 39 and the brazen altar, and the gridiron of brass longing thereunto with his bars and all his vessels, and the laver with his foot, 40 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, 41 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. 42 According to all that the LORD commanded Moses, even so the children of Israel made all the work. 43 And Moses beheld all the work, and see, they had done it even as the LORD commanded: and then Moses blessed them.
9 But David had knowledge that Saul imagined mischief against him, and said therefore to Abiathar the priest, "Bring the ephod."
1 And take thou unto thee, Aaron thy brother, and his sons with him, from among the children of Israel, that he may minister unto me: both Aaron, Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron's sons. 2 And thou shalt make holy raiment for Aaron thy brother, both honorable and glorious. 3 Moreover, speak unto all that are wise hearted, which I have filled with the spirit of wisdom: that they make Aaron's raiment to consecrate him with, that he may minister unto me. 4 "These are the garments which they shall make: a breastlap, ephod, a tunicle, a strait coat, a mitre and a girdle. And they shall make holy garments for Aaron thy brother and his sons, that he may minister unto me. 5 And they shall take thereto, gold, jacinth, scarlet, purple and bysse. 6 And they shall make the ephod of gold, jacinth, scarlet, purple and white twined bysse with broidered work. 7 The two sides shall come together, closed up in the edges thereof. 8 And the girdle of the ephod shall be of the same workmanship and of the same stuff: even of gold, jacinth, scarlet, purple and twined bysse. 9 And thou shalt take two onyx stones and grave in them the names of the children of Israel: 10 six in the one stone, and the other six in the other stone: according to the order of their birth. 11 After the work of a stone graver, even as signets are graven, shalt thou grave the two stones with the names of the children of Israel, and shalt make them to be set in ouches of gold. 12 And thou shalt put the two stones upon the two shoulders of the ephod, and they shall be stones of remembrance unto the children of Israel. And Aaron shall bear their names before the LORD upon his two shoulders for a remembrance. 13 And thou shalt make hooks of gold, 14 and two chains of fine gold: link work and wreathed, and fasten the wreathed chains to the hooks. 15 And thou shalt make the breastlap of example with broidered work: even after the work of the ephod shalt thou make it: of gold, jacinth, scarlet, purple and twined bysse shalt thou make it. 16 Foursquare it shall be and double, a hand breadth long and a hand breadth broad. 17 And thou shalt fill it with four rows of stones. In the first row shall be a Sardius, a Topaz and Smaragdus. 18 The second row, a Ruby, Sapphire and Diamond. 19 The third, Ligurius, an Agate and Amethyst. 20 The fourth, a Turquoise, Onyx and Jasper. And they shall be set in gold in their enclosures. 21 And the stones shall be graven as signets be graven: with the names of the children of Israel, even with twelve names every one with his name according to the twelve tribes. 22 And thou shalt make upon the breastlap two fastening chains of pure gold and wreathen work. 23 And thou shalt make likewise upon the breastlap two rings of gold and put them on the edges of the breastlap, 24 and put the two wreathen chains of gold in the two rings which are in the edges of the breastlap. 25 And the two ends of the two chains thou shalt fasten in the two rings, and put them upon the shoulders of the ephod: on the foreside of it. 26 And thou shalt yet make two rings of gold, and put them in the two edges of the breastlap even in the borders thereof toward the inside of the ephod that is over against it. 27 And yet two other rings of gold thou shalt make, and put them on the two sides of the ephod, beneath over against the breastlap, below where the sides are joined together upon the broidered girdle of the ephod. 28 And they shall bind the breastlap by his rings unto the rings of the ephod with a lace of jacinth, that it may lie close unto the broidered girdle of the ephod, that the breastlap be not loosed from the ephod. 29 "And Aaron shall bear the names of the children Israel in the breastlap of example upon his heart, when he goeth into the holy place, for a remembrance before the LORD always. 30 And thou shalt put in the breastlap of example Light and Perfectness: that they be even upon Aaron's heart when he goeth in before the LORD and Aaron shall bear the example of the children of Israel upon his heart before the LORD always. 31 And thou shalt make the tunicle unto the ephod, altogether of jacinth. 32 And there shall be a hole for the head in the midst of it, and let there be a bond of woven work round about the collar of it: as it were the collar of a partlet, that it rend not. 33 And beneath upon the hem, thou shalt make pomegranates of Jacincth, of scarlet, and of purple round about the hem, 34 and bells of gold between them round about: that there be ever a golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a pomegranate, round about upon the hem of the tunicle. 35 And Aaron shall have it upon him when he ministereth, that the sound may be heard when he goeth into the holy place before the LORD and when he cometh out, that he die not. 36 And thou shalt make a plate of pure gold, and grave thereon, as signets are graven, 'The holiness of the LORD,' 37 and put it on a lace of Jacincth and tie it unto the mitre, 38 upon the forefront of it, that it be upon Aaron's forehead: that Aaron bear the sin of the holy things which the children of Israel have hallowed in all their holy gifts. And it shall be always upon Aaron's forehead, that they may be accepted before the LORD. 39 And thou shalt make an alb of bysse, and thou shalt make a mitre of bysse and a girdle of needle work. 40 And thou shalt make for Aaron's sons also coats, girdles and bonnets; honorable and glorious, 41 and thou shalt put them upon Aaron thy brother and on his sons with him and shalt anoint them and fill their hands and consecrate them, that they may minister unto me. 42 And thou shalt make them linen breeches to cover their privities: from the loins unto the thighs shall they reach. 43 And they shall be upon Aaron and his sons, when they go into the tabernacle of witness, or when they go unto the altar to minister in holiness, that they bear no sin and so die. And it shall be a law for ever unto Aaron and his seed after him."
