Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 39:1 - The craftsmen made beautiful sacred garments of blue, purple, and scarlet cloth—clothing for Aaron to wear while ministering in the Holy Place, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 39:2 - Bezalel[fn] made the ephod of finely woven linen and embroidered it with gold and with blue, purple, and scarlet thread.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 39:3 - He made gold thread by hammering out thin sheets of gold and cutting it into fine strands. With great skill and care, he worked it into the fine linen with the blue, purple, and scarlet thread.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 39:4 - The ephod consisted of two pieces, front and back, joined at the shoulders with two shoulder-pieces.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 39:5 - The decorative sash was made of the same materials: finely woven linen embroidered with gold and with blue, purple, and scarlet thread, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 39:6 - They mounted the two onyx stones in settings of gold filigree. The stones were engraved with the names of the tribes of Israel, just as a seal is engraved.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 39:7 - He fastened these stones on the shoulder-pieces of the ephod as a reminder that the priest represents the people of Israel. All this was done just as the LORD had commanded Moses.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 39:8 - Bezalel made the chestpiece with great skill and care. He made it to match the ephod, using finely woven linen embroidered with gold and with blue, purple, and scarlet thread.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 39:9 - He made the chestpiece of a single piece of cloth folded to form a pouch nine inches[fn] square.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 39:12 - The third row contained an orange jacinth, an agate, and a purple amethyst.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 39:35 - the Ark of the Covenant[fn] and its carrying poles; the Ark’s cover—the place of atonement;

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 39:36 - the table and all its utensils; the Bread of the Presence;

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 39:37 - the pure gold lampstand with its symmetrical lamp cups, all its accessories, and the olive oil for lighting;
