Exodus 39

Exodus 39:1  
And from the needlework of blue and purple and red they made the robes used for the work of the holy place, and the holy robes for Aaron, as the Lord had given orders to Moses.

Exodus 39:2  
The ephod he made of gold and blue and purple and red and the best linen;

Exodus 39:3  
Hammering the gold into thin plates and cutting it into wires to be worked into the blue and the purple and the red and the linen by the designer.

Exodus 39:4  
And they made two bands for joining its edges together at the top of the arms.

Exodus 39:5  
And the beautifully worked band which went on it was of the same design and the same material, worked in gold and blue and purple and red and twisted linen-work, as the Lord gave orders to Moses.

Exodus 39:6  
Then they made the beryl stones, fixed in twisted frames of gold and cut like the cutting of a stamp, with the names of the children of Israel.

Exodus 39:7  
These he put on the ephod, over the arm-holes, to be stones of memory for the children of Israel, as the Lord had said to Moses.

Exodus 39:8  
The priest's bag was designed like the ephod, of the best linen worked with gold and blue and purple and red.

Exodus 39:9  
It was square and folded in two, as long and as wide as the stretch of a man's hand;

Exodus 39:10  
And on it they put four lines of stones: in the first line was a carnelian, a chrysolite, and an emerald;

Exodus 39:11  
In the second, a ruby, a sapphire, and an onyx;

Exodus 39:12  
In the third, a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst;

Exodus 39:13  
In the fourth, a topaz, a beryl, and a jasper; they were fixed in twisted frames of gold.

Exodus 39:14  
There were twelve stones for the twelve tribes of Israel; on every one the name of one of the tribes of Israel was cut, like the cutting of a stamp.

Exodus 39:15  
And on the bag they put gold chains, twisted like cords.

Exodus 39:16  
And they made two gold frames and two gold rings, the rings being fixed to the ends of the priest's bag;

Exodus 39:17  
And they put the two twisted chains on the two rings at the ends of the priest's bag;

Exodus 39:18  
And the other two ends of the chains were joined to the two frames and fixed to the front of the ephod over the arm-holes.

Exodus 39:19  
And they made two rings of gold and put them on the two lower ends of the bag, on the inner side nearest to the ephod.

Exodus 39:20  
And two other gold rings were put on the front of the ephod, over the arm-holes, at the join, and over the worked band.

Exodus 39:21  
And the rings on the bag were fixed to the rings of the ephod by a blue cord, keeping it in place over the band, so that the bag might not get loose, as the Lord gave orders to Moses.

Exodus 39:22  
The robe which went with the ephod was made all of blue;

Exodus 39:23  
With a hole at the top in the middle, like the hole in the coat of a fighting-man, edged with a band to make it strong.

Exodus 39:24  
The skirts of the robe were worked all round with fruits in blue and purple and red made of twisted linen.

Exodus 39:25  
And between the fruits all round the skirt they put gold bells, as the Lord gave orders to Moses.

Exodus 39:26  
All round the skirt of the robe were bells and fruits in turn.

Exodus 39:27  
The coats for Aaron and his sons they made of the best linen;

Exodus 39:28  
And the twisted head-dress for Aaron, and beautiful head-dresses of linen, and linen trousers,

Exodus 39:29  
And a linen band worked with a design of blue and purple and red, as the Lord had said to Moses.

Exodus 39:30  
The plate for the holy crown was made of the best gold, and on it were cut these words, HOLY TO THE LORD.

Exodus 39:31  
It was fixed to the head-dress by a blue cord, as the Lord had given orders to Moses.

Exodus 39:32  
So all the work on the House of the Tent of meeting was done; as the Lord had given orders to Moses, so the children of Israel did it.

Exodus 39:33  
Then they took the House to Moses, the tent with all the things for it; its hooks, its boards, its rods, its pillars, and its bases;

Exodus 39:34  
The outer cover of sheepskins coloured red, and the cover of leather, and the veil for the doorway;

Exodus 39:35  
The ark of the law, with its rods and its cover;

Exodus 39:36  
The table, with all its vessels and the holy bread;

Exodus 39:37  
The support for the lights, with the vessels for the lights to be put in their places on it, and all its vessels, and the oil for the lights;

Exodus 39:38  
And the gold altar, and the holy oil, and the sweet perfume for burning, and the curtain for the doorway of the tent;

Exodus 39:39  
And the brass altar, with its network of brass, and its rods and all its vessels, and the washing-vessel and its base;

Exodus 39:40  
The hangings for the open space, with the pillars and their bases, and the curtain for the doorway, and the cords and nails, and all the instruments necessary for the work of the House of the Tent of meeting;

Exodus 39:41  
The robes for use in the holy place, and the holy robes for Aaron and his sons when acting as priests.

Exodus 39:42  
The children of Israel did everything as the Lord had given orders to Moses.

Exodus 39:43  
Then Moses, when he saw all their work and saw that they had done everything as the Lord had said, gave them his blessing.
