Exodus (Author Moses)

28:1And thou shalt take thee Aaron thy brother, and his sons with him, from among the children of Israel, that he may serve me as priest -- Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron's sons.

28:2And thou shalt make holy garments for Aaron thy brother, for glory and for ornament.

28:3And thou shalt speak with all that are wise-hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they may make Aaron's garments to hallow him, that he may serve me as priest.

28:4And these are the garments which they shall make: a breastplate, and an ephod, and a cloak, and a checkered vest, a turban, and a girdle; and they shall make holy garments for Aaron thy brother, and his sons, that he may serve me as priest.

28:5And they shall take gold, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and twined byssus,

28:6and shall make the ephod of gold, blue, and purple, scarlet and twined byssus, of artistic work.

28:7It shall have two shoulder-pieces joined at the two ends thereof, where it is joined together.

28:8And the girdle of the ephod, which is upon it, shall be of the same, according to its work of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet and twined byssus.

28:9And thou shalt take two onyx stones, and engrave on them the names of the children of Israel:

28:10six of their names on the one stone, and the six names of the rest on the other stone, according to their birth.

28:11According to the work of an engraver in stone, as the engravings of a seal, shalt thou engrave the two stones with the names of the sons of Israel; surrounded by enclosures of gold shalt thou make them.

28:12And thou shalt put the two stones upon the shoulder-pieces of the ephod as stones of memorial for the children of Israel; and Aaron shall bear their names before Jehovah upon his two shoulders for a memorial.

28:13And thou shalt make enclosures of gold;

28:14and two chains of pure gold; of laced work shalt thou make them, of wreathen work, and fasten the wreathen chains to the enclosures.

28:15And thou shalt make the breastplate of judgment of artistic work, like the work of the ephod thou shalt make it; of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and twined byssus shalt thou make it.

28:16Square shall it be, doubled; a span the length thereof, and a span the breadth thereof.

28:17And thou shalt set in it settings of stones -- four rows of stones: one row, a sardoin, a topaz, and an emerald -- the first row;

28:18and the second row, a carbuncle, a sapphire, and a diamond;

28:19and the third row, an opal, an agate, and an amethyst;

28:20and the fourth row, a chrysolite, and an onyx, and a jasper; enclosed in gold shall they be in their settings.

28:21And the stones shall be according to the names of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names, engraved as a seal: every one according to his name shall they be for the twelve tribes.

28:22And thou shalt make on the breastplate chains of laced work, of wreathen work, of pure gold.

28:23And thou shalt make on the breastplate two rings of gold, and shalt put the two rings on the two ends of the breastplate.

28:24And thou shalt put the two wreathen cords of gold in the two rings on the ends of the breastplate;

28:25and the two ends of the two wreathen cords thou shalt fasten to the two enclosures, and shalt put them on the shoulder-pieces of the ephod, on the front thereof.

28:26And thou shalt make two rings of gold, and shalt put them on the two ends of the breastplate, on the border thereof, which faceth the ephod inwards.

28:27And two rings of gold shalt thou make, and shalt put them upon the two shoulder-pieces of the ephod underneath, to the front thereof just by the coupling thereof, above the girdle of the ephod.

28:28And they shall bind the breastplate with its rings to the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it may be above the girdle of the ephod, and that the breastplate be not loosed from the ephod.

28:29And Aaron shall bear the names of the children of Israel in the breastplate of judgment on his heart, when he goes in to the sanctuary, for a memorial before Jehovah continually.

28:30And thou shalt put into the breastplate of judgment the Urim and the Thummim, that they may be upon Aaron's heart when he goeth in before Jehovah; and Aaron shall bear the judgment of the children of Israel upon his heart before Jehovah continually.

28:31And thou shalt make the cloak of the ephod all of blue.

28:32And its opening for the head shall be in the midst thereof; there shall be a binding of woven work at its opening round about; as the opening of a coat of mail, it shall be in it -- it shall not rend.

28:33And on the skirts thereof thou shalt make pomegranates of blue, and purple, and scarlet, round about the skirts thereof; and bells of gold between them round about:

28:34a golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a pomegranate, in the skirts of the cloak round about.

28:35And it shall be on Aaron for service; that his sound may be heard when he goeth into the sanctuary before Jehovah, and when he cometh out, that he may not die.

28:36And thou shalt make a thin plate of pure gold, and engrave on it, as the engravings of a seal, Holiness to Jehovah!

28:37And thou shalt put it on a lace of blue, and it shall be upon the turban -- upon the front of the turban shall it be.

28:38And it shall be upon Aaron's forehead, and Aaron shall bear the iniquity of the holy things, which the children of Israel shall hallow in all gifts of their holy things; and it shall be continually on his forehead, that they may be accepted before Jehovah.

28:39And thou shalt weave the vest of byssus; and thou shalt make a turban of byssus; and thou shalt make a girdle of embroidery.

28:40And for Aaron's sons thou shalt make vests; and thou shalt make for them girdles; and high caps shalt thou make for them, for glory and for ornament.

28:41And thou shalt clothe with them Aaron thy brother, and his sons with him; and shalt anoint them, and consecrate them, and hallow them, that they may serve me as priests.

28:42And thou shalt make them linen trousers to cover the flesh of nakedness; from the loins even to the hips shall they reach.

28:43And they shall be upon Aaron and his sons when they enter into the tent of meeting, or when they come near to the altar to serve in the sanctuary; that they may not bear iniquity and die -- an everlasting statute for him and his seed after him.

29:1And this is the thing which thou shalt do to them to hallow them, that they may serve me as priests: take one young bullock, and two rams without blemish,

29:2and unleavened bread, and unleavened cakes mingled with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil -- of wheaten flour shalt thou make them.

29:3And thou shalt put them into one basket, and present them in the basket, with the bullock and the two rams.

29:4And Aaron and his sons thou shalt bring near the entrance of the tent of meeting, and shalt bathe them with water.

29:5And thou shalt take the garments, and clothe Aaron with the vest, and the cloak of the ephod, and the ephod, and the breastplate, and shalt gird him with the girdle of the ephod.

29:6And thou shalt put the turban upon his head, and fasten the holy diadem to the turban,

29:7and shalt take the anointing oil, and pour it on his head, and anoint him.

29:8And thou shalt bring his sons near, and clothe them with the vests.

29:9And thou shalt gird them with the girdle -- Aaron and his sons, and bind the high caps on them; and the priesthood shall be theirs for an everlasting statute; and thou shalt consecrate Aaron and his sons.

29:10And thou shalt present the bullock before the tent of meeting; and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands upon the head of the bullock;

29:11and thou shalt slaughter the bullock before Jehovah, at the entrance of the tent of meeting;

29:12and thou shalt take of the blood of the bullock, and put it on the horns of the altar with thy finger, and shalt pour all the blood at the bottom of the altar.

29:13And thou shalt take all the fat that covereth the inwards, and the net of the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, and burn them upon the altar.

29:14And the flesh of the bullock, and its skin, and its dung, shalt thou burn with fire outside the camp: it is a sin-offering.

29:15And thou shalt take one of the rams, and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands upon the head of the ram;

29:16and thou shalt slaughter the ram, and shalt take its blood, and sprinkle it on the altar round about.

29:17And thou shalt cut up the ram into its pieces, and wash its inwards, and its legs, and put them upon its pieces, and upon its head;

29:18and thou shalt burn the whole ram upon the altar: it is a burnt-offering to Jehovah -- a sweet odour; it is an offering by fire to Jehovah.

29:19And thou shalt take the second ram, and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands upon the head of the ram;

29:20and thou shalt slaughter the ram, and take of its blood, and put it on the tip of the right ear of Aaron, and on the tip of the right ear of his sons, and on the thumb of their right hand, and on the great toe of their right foot; and thou shalt sprinkle the blood upon the altar round about.

29:21And thou shalt take of the blood that is upon the altar, and of the anointing oil, and sprinkle it on Aaron, and on his garments, and on his sons, and on the garments of his sons with him; and he shall be hallowed, and his garments, and his sons, and his sons' garments with him.

29:22Also of the ram shalt thou take the fat, and the fat-tail, and the fat that covereth the inwards, and the net of the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, and the right shoulder -- for it is a ram of consecration --

29:23and one loaf of bread, and one cake of oiled bread, and one wafer out of the basket of the unleavened bread that is before Jehovah;

29:24and thou shalt put all this in the hands of Aaron, and in the hands of his sons, and shalt wave them as a wave-offering before Jehovah.

29:25And thou shalt receive them of their hand and burn them upon the altar over the burnt-offering, for a sweet odour before Jehovah: it is an offering by fire to Jehovah.

29:26And thou shalt take the breast of the ram of consecration which is for Aaron, and wave it as a wave-offering before Jehovah; and it shall be thy part.

29:27And thou shalt hallow the breast of the wave-offering, and the shoulder of the heave-offering, that hath been waved and heaved up, of the ram of the consecration, of that which is for Aaron, and of that which is for his sons.

29:28And they shall be for Aaron and his sons, as an everlasting statute, on the part of the children of Israel; for it is a heave-offering; and it shall be a heave-offering on the part of the children of Israel of the sacrifices of their peace-offerings, as their heave-offering to Jehovah.

29:29And the holy garments of Aaron shall be his sons' after him, to be anointed therein, and to be consecrated in them.

29:30The son that is priest in his stead shall put them on seven days, when he cometh into the tent of meeting to serve in the sanctuary.

29:31And thou shalt take the ram of the consecration, and boil its flesh in a holy place.

29:32And Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram, and the bread that is in the basket, at the entrance of the tent of meeting.

29:33They shall eat the things with which the atonement was made, to consecrate and to hallow them; but a stranger shall not eat of them, for they are holy.

29:34And if any of the flesh of the consecration, and of the bread, remain until the morning, then thou shalt burn the remainder with fire: it shall not be eaten, for it is holy.

29:35And thus shalt thou do to Aaron, and to his sons, according to all that I have commanded thee: seven days shalt thou consecrate them.

29:36And thou shalt offer every day a bullock as a sin-offering for atonement; and the altar shalt thou cleanse from sin, by making atonement for it, and shalt anoint it, to hallow it.

29:37Seven days shalt thou make atonement for the altar and hallow it; and the altar shall be most holy: whatever toucheth the altar shall be holy.

29:38And this is what thou shalt offer upon the altar -- two lambs of the first year, day by day continually.

29:39The one lamb thou shalt offer in the morning; and the other lamb thou shalt offer between the two evenings.

29:40And with the one lamb a tenth part of wheaten flour mingled with beaten oil, a fourth part of a hin; and a drink-offering, a fourth part of a hin of wine.

29:41And the second lamb shalt thou offer between the two evenings; as the oblation in the morning, and as its drink-offering shalt thou offer with this, for a sweet odour, an offering by fire to Jehovah.

29:42It shall be a continual burnt-offering throughout your generations at the entrance of the tent of meeting before Jehovah, where I will meet with you, to speak there with thee.

29:43And there will I meet with the children of Israel; and it shall be hallowed by my glory.

29:44And I will hallow the tent of meeting, and the altar; and I will hallow Aaron and his sons, that they may serve me as priests.

29:45And I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel, and will be their God.

29:46And they shall know that I am Jehovah their God, who have brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, to dwell in their midst: I am Jehovah their God.

30:1And thou shalt make an altar for the burning of incense: of acacia-wood shalt thou make it;

30:2a cubit the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof -- square shall it be; and two cubits its height; of itself shall be its horns.

30:3And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, the top thereof, and the sides thereof round about, and the horns thereof; and thou shalt make upon it a border of gold round about.

30:4And two rings of gold shalt thou make for it under its border; by its two corners shalt thou make them, on the two sides thereof; and they shall be for receptacles for the staves, with which to carry it.

30:5And thou shalt make the staves of acacia-wood, and overlay them with gold.

30:6And thou shalt put it in front of the veil which is before the ark of the testimony in front of the mercy-seat which is over the testimony, where I will meet with thee.

30:7And Aaron shall burn thereon fragrant incense: every morning, when he dresseth the lamps, he shall burn the incense.

30:8And when Aaron lighteth the lamps between the two evenings, he shall burn the incense -- a continual incense before Jehovah throughout your generations.

30:9Ye shall offer up no strange incense thereon, nor burnt-offering, nor oblation; neither shall ye pour drink-offering thereon.

30:10And Aaron shall make atonement for its horns once in the year: with the blood of the sin-offering of atonement shall he make atonement for it, once in the year, throughout your generations: it is most holy to Jehovah.

30:11And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

30:12When thou shalt take the sum of the children of Israel according to those of them that are numbered, then shall they give every man a ransom for his soul to Jehovah on their being numbered, that there be no plague among them on their being numbered.

30:13This shall they give -- every one that passeth among them that are numbered -- half a shekel after the shekel of the sanctuary, -- twenty gerahs the shekel; a half shekel shall be the heave-offering for Jehovah.

30:14Every one that passeth among those that are numbered, from twenty years old and above, shall give the heave-offering of Jehovah.

30:15The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less than half a shekel, when ye give the heave-offering of Jehovah, to make atonement for your souls.

30:16And thou shalt take the atonement-money of the children of Israel, and devote it to the service of the tent of meeting; and it shall be a memorial to the children of Israel before Jehovah, to make atonement for your souls.

30:17And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

30:18Thou shalt also make a laver of copper, and its stand of copper, for washing; and thou shalt put it between the tent of meeting and the altar, and shalt put water in it.

30:19And Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet out of it.

30:20When they go into the tent of meeting, they shall wash with water, that they may not die; or when they come near to the altar to serve, to burn an offering by fire to Jehovah.

30:21And they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they may not die; and it shall be an everlasting statute for them, for him and for his seed throughout their generations.

30:22And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

30:23And thou, take best spices -- of liquid myrrh five hundred shekels, and of sweet cinnamon the half -- two hundred and fifty, and of sweet myrtle two hundred and fifty,

30:24and of cassia five hundred, after the shekel of the sanctuary, and of olive oil a hin;

30:25and make of it an oil of holy ointment, a perfume of perfumery after the work of the perfumer: it shall be the holy anointing oil.

30:26And thou shalt anoint the tent of meeting with it, and the ark of the testimony,

30:27and the table and all its utensils, and the lamp-stand and its utensils, and the altar of incense,

30:28and the altar of burnt-offering and all its utensils, and the laver and its stand.

30:29And thou shalt hallow them, that they may be most holy: whatever toucheth them shall be holy.

30:30And Aaron and his sons thou shalt anoint, and shalt hallow them, that they may serve me as priests.

30:31And thou shalt speak to the children of Israel, saying, A holy anointing oil shall this be unto me throughout your generations.

30:32Upon man's flesh shall it not be poured, neither shall ye make any like it, after the preparation of it: it is holy -- holy shall it be unto you.

30:33Whoever compoundeth any like it, or whoever putteth any of it upon any strange thing, shall be cut off from his peoples.

30:34And Jehovah said to Moses, Take fragrant drugs -- stacte, and onycha, and galbanum -- fragrant drugs and pure frankincense; in like proportions shall it be.

30:35And thou shalt make it into incense, a perfume, after the work of the perfumer, salted, pure, holy.

30:36And thou shalt beat some of it to powder, and put some of it before the testimony in the tent of meeting, where I will meet with thee: it shall be unto you most holy.

30:37And the incense that thou shalt make, ye shall not make for yourselves according to the proportions of it; it shall be unto thee holy to Jehovah.

30:38Whoever maketh like unto it, to smell it, shall be cut off from his peoples.

31:1And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

31:2See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah,

31:3and have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in every work,

31:4to devise artistic work -- to work in gold, and in silver, and in copper,

31:5and in cutting of stones, for setting, and for carving of timber -- to work in all manner of work.

31:6And I, behold, I have given with him Aholiab the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan; and in the heart of every one that is wise-hearted have I given wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded thee --

31:7the tent of meeting and the ark of the testimony, and the mercy-seat that is thereupon, and all the utensils of the tent,

31:8and the table and its utensils, and the pure lamp-stand and all its utensils, and the altar of incense;

31:9and the altar of burnt-offering and all its utensils, and the laver and its stand;

31:10and the garments of service, both the holy garments of Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to serve as priests;

31:11and the anointing oil, and the incense of fragrant drugs for the sanctuary: according to all that I have commanded thee shall they do.

31:12And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

31:13And thou, speak thou unto the children of Israel, saying, Surely my sabbaths shall ye keep; for this is a sign between me and you throughout your generations, that ye may know that it is I, Jehovah, who do hallow you.

31:14Keep the sabbath, therefore; for it is holy unto you; every one that profaneth it shall certainly be put to death: yea, whoever doeth work on it, that soul shall be cut off from among his peoples.

31:15Six days shall work be done; but on the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, holy to Jehovah: whoever doeth work on the sabbath day shall certainly be put to death.

31:16And the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations -- it is an everlasting covenant.

31:17It shall be a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever; for in six days Jehovah made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.

31:18And he gave to Moses, when he had ended speaking with him on mount Sinai, the two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.
