145 : The Priests Holy Garments


And you shall make holy garments for Aaron your brother, for glory and for beauty.
You shall speak to all that are wisehearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they make Aaron's garments to consecrate him.
 And these are the garments which they shall make: a breastplate, an ephod, a robe, an embroidered coat, a turban and a girdle.
"And they shall make the ephod of gold, of blue, of purple, of scarlet and fine twined linen, with skilful work.
And they shall make for the breastplate chains of pure gold. And Aaron shall bear the names of the children of Israel on the breastplate of judgment upon his heart when he goes into the
holy place, as a memorial before the Lord. "And they shall make the robe all of blue, and beneath, on the hem of it, you shall make pomegranates of blue, and of purple and of scarlet, with bells of gold between them.
Aaron shall wear these garments when he ministers so that his sound may be heard both when he goes in to worship before the Lord, and when he comes out. And you shall make a plate of pure gold,
and engrave upon it in the manner of a signet, HOLINESS TO THE LORD.
You shall put it on the front of the turban and it shall be attached with a lace of blue.
"This plate shall be at all times upon Aaron's forehead as a token of his ministry in order that the holy offerings of the people of Israel may be acceptable before the Lord.
"Aaron and his sons shall be anointed with oil and shall be made priests, so that they may make sacrifices to me for the people.
"And for the sacrifice you shall take one young bullock and two lambs without blemish, unleavened bread, unleavened cakes tempered with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil.
You shall make them of wheat flour, and place them in a basket, bringing it with the bullock and the two rams.
"Then you shall bring Aaron and his sons to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation and wash them with water.
"All these things shall be possible because I have given you men of skill and intelligence, whom I have filled with the spirit of God.
 These men are craftsmen of great experience and understanding.
 They are able to work in gold, silver and brass, to cut and set stones and to carve timber.
They have the talent to make all that I have commanded, whether the tabernacle of the congregation, the ark of the testimony or the mercy seat upon it.
"Speak to the people of Israel and say: 'You shall keep my sabbaths as a sign between me and you through all generations.
 Six days may work be done but the seventh is a day of rest, holy to the€ Lord, for having made heaven and earth in six day, the Lord rested on the seventh."'

And when God had finished speaking to Moses upon Mount Sinai,
 he  gave him two tablets of stone, the tablets of the law and commandments,
writte€n by the hand of the Lord.
