Easton's Bible Dictionary


(Heb. yashpheh, "glittering"), a gem of various colours, one of the twelve inserted in the high priest's breast-plate (Exd 28:20). It is named in the building of the New Jerusalem (Rev 21:18,19). It was "most precious," "clear as crystal" (21:11). It was emblematic of the glory of God (4:3).

Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g2393 Greek: iaspis


a Phoenician word (cp. Heb. yash'pheh, e.g., Exd 28:20; 39:16), seems to have denoted a translucent stone of various colors, especially that of fire, Rev 4:3; 21:11, 18, 19. The sardius and the jasper, of similar color, were the first and last stones on the breastplate of the high priest, Exd 28:17, 20.

Smith's Bible Dictionary


a precious stone frequently noticed in Scripture. It was the last of the twelve inserted in the high priest's breastplate (Exodus 28:20; 39:13) and the first of the twelve used in the foundations of the new Jerusalem (Revelation 21:19). The characteristics of the stone as far as they are specified in Scripture (Revelation 21:11) are that it "was most precious," and "like crystal;" we may also infer from Revelation 4:3 that it was a stone of brilliant and transparent light. The stone which we name "jasper" does not accord with this description. There can be no doubt that the diamond would more adequately answer to the description in the book of Revelation.


The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
