The robe for the ephod was made of woven work, of pure blue. The opening of the robe, in the middle of it, was like the opening of a coat of mail, with a binding around the opening, so that it would not tear. On the hem of the robe they made pomegranates of blue, purple, and crimson yarns, twisted. They also made bells of pure gold, and attached the bells between the pomegranates, all around the hem of the robe, between the pomegranates: a bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, all around the them of the robe for officiating in–as the Lord had commanded Moses.
They made the tunics of fine linen, of woven work, for Aaron and his sons; and the headdress of fine linen, and the decorated turbans of fine linen, and the linen breeches of fine twisted linen; and sashes of fine twisted linen, blue, purple, and crimson yarns, done in embroidery–as the Lord had commanded Moses.
They made the frontlet for the holy diadem of pure gold, and incised upon it the seal inscription: “Holy to the Lord.” They attached to it a cord of blue to fix it upon the headdress above–as the Lord had commanded Moses.
Thus was completed all the work of the Tabernacle of the Tent of Meeting. The Israelites did so, just as the Lord had commanded Moses, so they did.
