17 bits long and a cubit and a half broad with two rabbets to each

pilaster to fit the pilasters one to another. In this manner thou 18 shalt make all the pilasters of the tabernacle. And thou shalt

make the pilasters for the tabernacle twenty pilasters for the 19 north side; and for these twenty pilasters thou shalt make' forty

bases of silver, two for each pilaster, for both the ends thereof: 20 And for the other side towards the south, twenty pilasters 21 with their forty bases of silver, two for each pilaster for botlí 22 the ends thereof: and for the end of the tabernacle which is 23 towards the west thou shalt make six pilasters; and at the corn

ers of the tabernacle out of the hinder ends thou shalt make

two pilasters and the side on the end shall be of the same piece 24 and as wide as the other side-both sides shall be equal from

the corner to the first joint. That thou mayst do this at both 25 corners, the corner pilasters must have equal sides. So there

will be eight pilasters and their bases of silver sixteen, two for 26 each pilaster for the two ends thereof. And thou shalt make

bars of incorruptible wood-five for one range of pilasters on 27 one side of the tabernacle, and five bars for the other range 28 of pilasters on the other side of the tabernacle; and five for the

end of the tabernacle facing the west. And let the bar which

is along the middle of the ranges of pilasters reach from one 29 corner to the other. And thou shalt overlay the pilasters with

gold. And thou shalt make rings of gold into which thou shalt 30 put the bars; and thou shalt overlay the bars with gold. And

thou shalt rear up the tabernacle according to the pattern shewn

thee on this mount. 31 Thou shalt also make a veil of blue and purple and scarlet 32 yarn and cotton thread. This thou shalt make a work in

woven with cherubs : and thou shalt hang it on four pillars of

incorruptible wood overlaid with gold, the capitals of which are 33 to be of gold and their four bases of silver. And having hung up

the veil upon the pillars, thou shalt bring in there within the 34 veil the ark of the testimony. And the veil shall make a divi.

sion for you, between the Holy and the Holy of Holies. And with

the veil thou shalt cover from view the ark of the testimony in 35 the Holy of Holies. And thou shalt place the table without the

veil, and the candlestick over against the table on the south side of the tabernacle, and the table thou shalt place on the

36 north side of the tabernacle. And thou shalt make a draw

curtain for the door of the tabernacle, of blue and purple and

scarlet yarn and cotton thread, the work of an embroiderer : 37 And for this veil thou shalt make five pillars and overlay them

with gold and their capitals shall be of gold but thou shalt cast

for them five bases of brass. XXVII, Thou shalt make also an Altar of incorruptible wood,

five cubits long and five cubits broad. The Altar shall be 2 square and the height of it shall be three cubits. And thou

shalt make the horns at the four corners. The horns shall be

a component part of it and thou shalt overlay them with brass. 3 And thou shalt make a border for the Altar. And its cover

and its pans and its flesh hooks and its fire hearth and all its 4 utensils thou shalt make of brass. And thou shalt make for it

a brass grate of net work; and for the grate thou shalt make 5 four rings of brass under the four sides; and thou shalt put

them under the grate of the altar below (now the grate must 6 be half way up the height of the altar.) And thou shalt make

for the altar poles of incorruptible wood and overlay them 7 with brass, and thou shalt put the poles into the rings; and 8 let the poles be along the sides of the altar in carrying it. Hol.

low, and of boards thou shalt make it. According to what is

shewn thee on this mount so shalt thou make it. 9 Thou shalt also make a court for the tabernacle. For the

south side, the hangings of the court shall be of cotton thread;

the length for that side one hundred cubits and their pillars 10 twenty. And the twenty bases of these pillars shall be of brass 11 and their links and their fillets of silver. So for the north side

there shall be hangings a hundred cubits long with their twenty pillars; and the twenty bases of them shall be of brass, and

the links and the fillets of these pillars and their bases shall be 12 overlaid with silver. And for the breadth of the court west

ward there shall be hangings of fifty cubits, their pillars ten and 13 their bases ten. And for the breadth of the court eastward

there shall be hangings of fifty cubits, their pillars ten and 14 their bases ten. But on one side of the gateway, the length of

the hangings shall be fifteen cubits, their pillars three and their 15 bases three; and for the other side of the gateway, the length

of the hangings shall be fifteen cubits; their pillars three and 16 their bases three : and for the gate of the court there shall be

a curtain of twenty cubits long, made of blue and purple and

scarlet yarn and cotton thread woven with a variety of em. 17 broidery; the pillars four and their bases four. All the pil.

lars of the court round about shall be filletted with silver and 18 the capitals shall be silvered and their bases of brass. The . length of the court shall be a hundred cubits on each side, and

the breadth fifty cubits at each end, and the height of the cot19 ton hangings five cubits. And the bases shall be of brass,

and all the implements and all the utensils and all the pins of

the court shall be of brass. 20 Moreover thou shalt give orders to the children of Israel ;

and let them provide for thee, clear, pure oil expressed from

olives to burn for a light, that a lamp may be kept burning 21 continually in the tabernacle of the testimony. On the outside

of the veil which is before the covenant Aaron and his sons shall keep it burning from evening till morning before the

Lord. This shall be an everlasting ordinance for your generaXXVIII. tions among the children of Israel. Therefore asso.

ciate thou with thyself thy brother Aaron and his sons, that from among the children of Israel, Aaron and Nadab and

Abiud and Eleazar and Ithamar the sons of Aaron may minis. 2 ter to me in the priest's office. And thou shalt make for thy 3 brother Aaron holy raiment for dignity and glory. For this

purpose speak to all those who are wise in heart, whom I have filled with a spirit of wisdom and understanding and let them make the holy raiment of Aaron for the sanctuary, in which

he shall minister to me. 4 Now these are the robes which they shall make, The breast

plate, and the ephod, and a long robe reaching down to the feet, and a broidered vesture, and a mitre, and a girdle. And

that they may make holy robes for Aaron and his sons to mi. 5 nister to me, they shall take the gold and the blue and the pur6 ple and the scarlet yarn and the cotton thread, and they shall 7 make the ephod of cotton thread, a woven work of an em.

broiderer. It shall have two shoulder pieces connected with it 8 and to one another, being joined at the two sides. And the

texture of the two shoulder pieces which are over it shall be of the same fabrick and materials as it is; of pure gold and of

9 blue and purple and scarlet yarn and cotton thread. And thou

shalt take the two stones, smaragdine stones, and engrave upon 10 them the names of the sons of Israel, six names on one stone

and the other six names on the other stone; according to their 11 births. With the workmanship of a skilful engraver, like the

engraving of a seal, thou shalt engrave the two stones with the 12 names of the sons of Israel. And thou shalt fix these two stones

on the shoulders of the ephod. They are stones of remembrance for the children of Israel. And Aaron shall carry the

names of the children of Israel before the Lord on his two 13 shoulders as a memorial concerning them. Thou shalt also

make little shields of pure gold; and thou shalt make two 14 pieces of net work of pure gold intermixed with flowers, the

work of a curious plaiter, and thou shalt put the plaited net

works upon the little shields in the fore front of the shoulder 15 pieces. And thou shalt make the oracle of judgment, a work

of an embroiderer—thou shalt make it, conformable to the

ephod, of gold and blue and purple and scarlet yarn and cotton 16 thread—thou shalt make it four square. It shall be double. 17 The length of it a span and the breadth a span. And thou

shalt inweave in it a texture to contain stones in four rows.

One row of stones shall be a sardius, a topaz and a smaragdus; 18 this shall be the first row. And the second row, an anthrax, 19 and a sapphire and a jaspis; and the third row, a ligure, an 20 agate and an amethyst; and the fourth row, a chrysolite and a

beryl and an onyx. They must be cased in gold, and bound 21 together with gold according to their rows. And the stones

from the names of the sons of Israel must be twelve accord

ing to their names. They must be engraved like seals every 22 one with its name for the twelve tribes. And thou shalt make

upon the oracle net works inwoven with it, a chain work of 23 pure gold; and thou shalt make for the oracle two rings of gold

and thou shalt put the two rings of gold on the two upper ends 24 of the oracle. And thou shalt put the nettings and chain works

of gold on the two rings on the two upper ends of the oracle; 25 and the other two ends of the two pieces of net work thou

shalt put on the two pieces of plaiters work, so as to put them

upon the shoulders of the ephod over against each other in the 26 fore front. And thou shalt make two rings of gold and put them on the two wings of the oracle on the very tip next to the 27 lowest hinder tip of the ephod: And thou shalt make two rings

of gold and put them below on both the shoulder pieces of

the ephod, over against the upper juncture of the contexture 28 of the ephod; And from the two rings which are on it thou

shalt bind the oracle to the two rings of the ephod, which are

fastened with blue yarn and plaited into the texture of the 29 ephod, that the oracle may not be loosed from the ephod. And

Aaron shall carry on his breast the names of the children of

Israel on the oracle of judgment, when he goeth into the sanc. 30 tuary, as a memorial before God. And upon the oracle of

judgment thou shalt put the Manifestation and the Truth. And it shall be on the breast of Aaron, when he goeth into the sanctuary, before the Lord. And Aaron shall carry the judg

ments of the Israelites upon his breast before the Lord con. 31 tinually. And thou shalt make a robe to be worn under this, 32 which shall reach down to the feet, entirely of blue yarn: And

the opening of it at the neck shall be in the middle, having a

hem round the opening, a woven work, the binding being in. 33 terwoven with it, that it may not be rent. And underneath the

lower border of this robe thou shalt make clusters as of a blooming pomegranate of blue and purple and scarlet yarn and cotton thread. Under the border of this robe round about thou

shalt make clusters all of the same appearance and golden bells 34 between them round about — by a cluster a golden bell with 35 a running branch on the border of the robe round about; so

that when Aaron officiateth the sound of him may be heard as he goeth into the sanctuary before the Lord, or cometh out,

that he may not die. 56 And thou shalt make a plate of pure gold, and engrave on 37 it with the engraving of a seal, Holiness to the Lord, and thou 38 shalt fix it on a blue lace; and it shall be upon the mitre. It

shall be upon the front of the mitre and upon Aaron's forehead; and Aaron shall bear away the sins of the holy things which the children of Israel may dedicate-of every gift of

their holy things. And it shall be upon Aaron's forehead con. 39 tinually to make them acceptable before the Lord. Now the

embroideries of the vestures shall be of cotton and thou shalt make a tiara of cotton, and thou shalt make a girdle, the work
