15 “You shall make a breastpiece of judgment, in skilled work. In the style of the ephod you shall make it—of gold, blue and purple and scarlet yarns, and fine twined linen shall you make it.16 It shall be square and doubled, a span[a] its length and a span its breadth.17 You shall set in it four rows of stones. A row of sardius,[b] topaz, and carbuncle shall be the first row;18 and the second row an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond;19 and the third row a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst;20 and the fourth row a beryl, an onyx, and a jasper. They shall be set in gold filigree.21 There shall be twelve stones with their names according to the names of the sons of Israel. They shall be like signets, each engraved with its name, for the twelve tribes.22 You shall make for the breastpiece twisted chains like cords, of pure gold.23 And you shall make for the breastpiece two rings of gold, and put the two rings on the two edges of the breastpiece.24 And you shall put the two cords of gold in the two rings at the edges of the breastpiece.25 The two ends of the two cords you shall attach to the two settings of filigree, and so attach it in front to the shoulder pieces of the ephod.26 You shall make two rings of gold, and put them at the two ends of the breastpiece, on its inside edge next to the ephod.27 And you shall make two rings of gold, and attach them in front to the lower part of the two shoulder pieces of the ephod, at its seam above the skillfully woven band of the ephod.28 And they shall bind the breastpiece by its rings to the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, so that it may lie on the skillfully woven band of the ephod, so that the breastpiece shall not come loose from the ephod.
