GOLD, SILVER, BRONZE AND PRECIOUS STONES Our eternal God builds with materials that last. Exodus 38 & 39
24All the gold that was used in all the work of the holy place, was twenty-nine talents and seven hundred and thirty shekels [a little over 1 ton]. 25The silver was one hundred talents and one thousand seven hundred and seventy-five shekels [3 3/4 tons]. 29The bronze was seventy talents and two thousand four hundred shekels [2 1/2 tons]. 1 Of the blue, purple and scarlet thread they made the holy garments for Aaron, as the Lord had commanded Moses. 2He made the ephod. 3They beat gold into thin sheets and cut it into threads, to work it in with the blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and the fine linen, into artistic design. 4They made shoulder straps to couple it together. 5The intricately woven band of his ephod was of the same workmanship. 6They set onyx stones, enclosed in settings of gold; they were engraved, as signets are engraved, with the names of the sons of Israel. 7He put them on the shoulders of the ephod as memorial stones. 8He made the breastplate, artistically woven like the workmanship of the ephod. 9They made the breastplate square by doubling it; a span was its length and a span its width when doubled. l0They set in it four rows of stones: a row with a sardius, a topaz, and an emerald was the first row; 11the second row, a turquoise, a sapphire, and a diamond; 12the third row, a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst; 13the fourth row, a beryl, an onyx, and a jasper. They were enclosed in settings of gold in their mountings. 14There were twelve stones according to the names of the sons of Israel: according to their names, engraved like a signet, each one with its own name according to the twelve tribes. 21They bound the breastplate by means of its rings to the rings of the ephod with a blue cord, so that it would be above the intricately woven band of the ephod, and that the breastplate would not come loose from the ephod. 22He made the robe of the ephod of woven work, all of blue. 27They made tunics, artistically woven of fine linen, for Aaron and his sons, 28a turban of fine linen, exquisite hats of fine linen, short trousers of fine woven linen, 29and a sash of fine woven linen with blue, purple, and scarlet thread, made by a weaver. 30Then they made the plate of the holy crown of pure gold, and wrote on it an inscription like the engraving of a signet: HOLINESS TO THE LORD. 31They tied to it a blue cord, to fasten it above on the turban, as the Lord had commanded Moses.
