Exodus 39:22-31

The other clothes for the priests

22 The workers used only blue cloth to make the robe for the ephod. 23 They made a hole in the top of the robe, in the middle. They made an edge around the hole so that it would not tear. The priest's head would go through this hole. 24 They used blue, purple and red materials and good linen to make pictures of pomegranates. These were around the bottom edge of the robe. 25 They used pure gold to make little bells. They fixed the bells between the pomegranates on the bottom edge of the robe. 26 So there was a bell, then a pomegranate, another bell then a pomegranate, all around the edge of the robe. The priest would wear this robe when he served the Lord, as the Lord had commanded Moses.

39:22This robe was like a long shirt that the priest wore under the ephod.

27 The workers made long shirts for Aaron and his sons, the priests. They used good linen to make cloth for the shirts. 28 They also used good linen to make the Aaron's special hat, as well as hats for the other priests. They used special soft linen to make the trousers that they wore next to their skin. 29 A worker used special skills to make the long belt, so that it looked beautiful. He used blue, purple and red materials to make it, as the Lord had commanded Moses.

30 The workers used pure gold to make a thin plate as a holy sign. They wrote these words on it carefully with a sharp tool: ‘Holy to the Lord’. 31 They fixed a blue string to the plate, to tie it to the front of the special hat. The Lord had commanded Moses to do this.
