1 'From among the Israelites, summon your brother Aaron and his sons to be priests in my service: Aaron and Aaron's sons Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar.
Num 18:7  Exod 6:23  Exod 24:1  Exod 24:9  1Chr 6:10  1Chr 24:1-4  2Chr 11:14 

2 For your brother Aaron you will make sacred vestments to give dignity and magnificence.
Exod 31:10  Lev 8:30  Exod 39:1-2  Lev 8:7-9  Rev 19:8  Exod 28:40  Exod 29:5-9 

3 You will instruct all the skilled men, whom I have endowed with skill, to make Aaron's vestments for his consecration to my priesthood.
1Cor 12:7-11  Eph 1:17  Isa 11:2  Deut 34:9  Exod 31:3-6  Exod 35:25  Exod 35:30 

4 These are the vestments which they must make: a pectoral, an ephod, a robe, an embroidered tunic, a turban and a belt. They must make sacred vestments for your brother Aaron and his sons, for them to be priests in my service.
Exod 28:39-40  1Sam 2:18  1Sam 22:18  1Sam 23:6  1Sam 30:7  1Thess 5:8  2Sam 6:14 

5 They will use gold and violet material, red-purple and crimson, and finely woven linen.
Exod 25:3-4  Exod 39:2-3 

6 'They will make the ephod of finely woven linen embroidered with gold, violet-purple, red-purple and crimson.
Exod 26:1  Exod 39:2-7 

7 It will have two shoulder-straps joined to it; it will be joined to them by its two edges.
Exod 39:4 

8 The waistband on the ephod to hold it in position must be of the same workmanship and be of a piece with it: of gold, violet-purple, red-purple and crimson materials and finely woven linen.
Exod 28:27-28  Exod 29:5  Lev 8:7  1Pet 1:13  Exod 39:20-21  Isa 11:5  Rev 1:13 

9 You will then take two cornelians and engrave them with the names of the sons of Israel,
Ezek 28:13  2Chr 2:7  Exod 28:20  Exod 28:36  Exod 39:6  Exod 39:13  Gen 2:12 

10 six of their names on one stone, the remaining six names on the other, in the order of their birth.
Exod 1:1-4  Gen 43:33 

11 By the stone-carver's art -- seal engraving -- you will engrave the two stones with the names of the sons of Israel. You will have them mounted in gold settings
2Tim 2:19  Eph 1:13  Eph 4:30  Exod 28:13-14  Exod 28:21  Exod 28:25  Exod 28:36 

12 and will put the two stones on the shoulder-straps of the ephod, to commemorate the sons of Israel. In this way Aaron will bear their names on his two shoulders, before Yahweh, as a reminder.
Exod 28:29  Josh 4:7  Exod 39:6-7  Lev 24:7  Num 16:40  Num 31:54  Acts 10:4 

13 You will also make golden rosettes,

14 and two chains of pure gold twisted like cord, and will attach the cord-like chains to the rosettes.
1Kgs 7:17  2Chr 4:12-13  2Kgs 25:17  Exod 28:22-25  Exod 39:15  Exod 39:17-18 

15 'You will make the breastplate of judgement of the same embroidered work as the ephod; you will make it of gold, violet-purple, red-purple and crimson materials and finely woven linen.
Exod 26:1  Exod 28:4  Exod 28:6  Exod 28:30  Exod 39:8-21  Lev 8:8 

16 It must be square and doubled over, a span in length and a span in width.

17 In it you will set four rows of stones: a sard, topaz and emerald for the first row;
Ezek 28:13  Exod 28:9  Exod 28:11  Exod 39:10-21  Isa 54:11-12  Job 28:18-19  Lam 4:7 

18 for the second row, a garnet, sapphire and diamond;
Exod 24:10  Exod 39:11  Ezek 1:26  Ezek 10:1  Ezek 27:16  Ezek 28:13  Jer 17:1 

19 for the third row, a hyacinth, a ruby and an amethyst;
Exod 39:12  Isa 54:12 

20 and for the fourth row, a beryl, a cornelian and a jasper. These must be mounted in gold settings.
Dan 10:6  Ezek 1:16  Ezek 10:9  Rev 4:3  Rev 21:11  Rev 21:18-20 

21 The stones will correspond to the names of the sons of Israel, twelve like their names, engraved like seals, each with the name of one of the twelve tribes.
Rev 7:4-8  Rev 21:12  1Kgs 18:31  Jas 1:1  Luke 22:30 

22 For the breastplate you will make chains of pure gold twisted like cords,

23 and on the breastplate you will make two gold rings, putting the two rings on the two outside edges of the breastplate
Exod 25:11-15 

24 and fastening the two gold cords to the two rings on the outside edges of the breastplate.

25 The other two ends of the cords you will fasten to the two rosettes, putting these on the shoulder-straps of the ephod, on the front.
Exod 28:14  Exod 39:4  Exod 39:15 

26 You will also make two gold rings and put them on the two edges of the breastplate, on the inner side, against the ephod;

27 and you will make two gold rings and put them low down on the front of the two shoulder-pieces of the ephod, close to the join, above the waistband of the ephod.

28 The breastplate will be secured by a violet-purple cord passed through its rings and those of the ephod, so that the breastplate will sit above the waistband and not come apart from the ephod.
Num 15:38  Exod 28:31  Exod 28:37  Exod 39:30-31 

29 Thus Aaron will bear the names of the sons of Israel on the breastplate of judgement, on his heart, when he enters the sanctuary, as a reminder, before Yahweh, always.
Exod 28:12  Exod 28:30  Exod 28:15  Isa 49:15-16  Jer 30:21  Rom 10:1  Song 8:6 

30 To the breastplate of judgement you will add the urim and the thummim, and these will be on Aaron's heart when he goes into Yahweh's presence, and Aaron will bear the Israelites' judgement on his heart, in Yahweh's presence, always.
Ezra 2:63  Neh 7:65  Deut 33:8  Lev 8:8  Num 27:21  1Sam 28:6  1Sam 30:7-8 

31 'You will make the robe of the ephod entirely of violet-purple.
Exod 28:4  Exod 28:28  Exod 39:22-26  Lev 8:7 

32 In the centre it will have an opening for the head, the opening to have round it a border woven like the neck of a coat of mail, so that it will not get torn.
2Chr 26:14  Eph 4:3-16  Exod 39:28  Job 41:26  John 19:23-24  Neh 4:16 

33 On its lower hem, you will make pomegranates of violet-purple, red-purple and crimson, and finely woven linen all round the hem, with golden bells between them all round:
1Kgs 7:18  2Kgs 25:17  Exod 39:24-26  Zech 14:20 

34 a golden bell and then a pomegranate, alternately, all round the lower hem of the robe.
Col 1:5-6  Col 1:10  John 15:4-8  John 15:16  Ps 89:15  Song 2:3  Song 4:3 

35 Aaron must wear it when he officiates, and the tinkling will be heard when he goes into the sanctuary into Yahweh's presence, or leaves it, and so he will not incur death.
Heb 9:12  Lev 16:2 

36 'You will make a flower of pure gold and on it, as you would engrave a seal, you will engrave, "Consecrated to Yahweh".
Zech 14:20  Lev 8:9  Exod 39:30  1Pet 1:15-16  1Pet 2:9  Exod 28:9  Exod 28:11 

37 You will put it on a violet-purple cord; it will go on the turban; the front of the turban is the place where it must go.
Exod 28:4  Exod 28:28  Exod 28:31  Exod 29:6  Exod 39:30-31  Lev 8:9  Num 15:38 

38 This will go on Aaron's brow, and Aaron will thus take on himself the short-comings in the holy things consecrated by the Israelites, in all their holy offerings. It will be on his brow permanently, to make them acceptable to Yahweh.
1Pet 2:24  Lev 10:17  Num 18:1  Heb 9:28  John 1:29  1Pet 2:5  2Cor 5:21 

39 The tunic you will weave of fine linen, and make a turban of fine linen, and an embroidered waistband.
Ps 45:14 

40 'For the sons of Aaron you will make tunics and waistbands. You will also make them head-dresses to give dignity and magnificence.
Exod 39:41  Exod 28:4  Exod 28:2  Exod 29:9  Ezek 44:17-18  Lev 8:13  1Pet 3:3-4 

41 You will dress your brother Aaron and his sons in these; you will then anoint them, invest them and consecrate them to serve me in the priesthood.
Exod 29:7  Exod 29:9  Exod 40:15  Lev 8:1-36  Lev 10:7  Heb 7:28  1John 2:20 

42 You will also make them linen breeches reaching from waist to thigh, to cover their bare flesh.
Ezek 44:18  Lev 6:10  Lev 16:4  Exod 39:28  Exod 20:26  Rev 3:18 

43 Aaron and his sons will wear these when they go into the Tent of Meeting and when they approach the altar to serve in the sanctuary, as a precaution against incurring mortal guilt. This is a perpetual decree for Aaron and for his descendants after him.'
Exod 27:21  Exod 20:26  Lev 5:1  Lev 5:17  Lev 17:7  Lev 20:19-20  Lev 22:9
