Exodus 27:20-28:12New American Standard Bible (NASB)
20 “You shall charge the sons of Israel, that they bring you clear oil of beaten olives for the [a]light, to make a lamp [b]burn continually.21 In the tent of meeting, outside the veil which is before the testimony, Aaron and his sons shall keep it in order from evening to morning before the Lord; it shall be a perpetual statute throughout their generations [c]for the sons of Israel.
Garments of the Priests
28 “Then bring near to yourself Aaron your brother, and his sons with him, from among the sons of Israel, to minister as priest to Me—Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron’s sons.2 You shall make holy garments for Aaron your brother, for glory and for beauty.3 You shall speak to all the [d]skillful persons whom I have endowed with [e]the spirit of wisdom, that they make Aaron’s garments to consecrate him, that he may minister as priest to Me.4 These are the garments which they shall make: a [f]breastpiece and an ephod and a robe and a tunic of checkered work, a turban and a sash, and they shall make holy garments for Aaron your brother and his sons, that he may minister as priest to Me.5 They shall take the gold and the [g]blue and the purple and the scarlet material and the fine linen.
6 “They shall also make the ephod of gold, of [h]blue and purple and scarlet material and fine twisted linen, the work of the skillful workman.7 It shall have two shoulder pieces joined to its two ends, that it may be joined.8 The skillfully woven band, which is on it, shall be like its workmanship, [i]of the same material: of gold, of [j]blue and purple and scarlet material and fine twisted linen.9 You shall take two onyx stones and engrave on them the names of the sons of Israel,10 six of their names on the one stone and the names of the remaining six on the [k]other stone, according to their birth.11 [l]As a jeweler engraves a signet, you shall engrave the two stones according to the names of the sons of Israel; you shall [m]set them in filigree settings of gold.12 You shall put the two stones on the shoulder pieces of the ephod, as stones of memorial for the sons of Israel, and Aaron shall bear their names before the Lord on his two shoulders for a memorial.
