The Ephod
(Exodus 28:6–14)

1And of the blewe silke, purple, & scarlet, they made vestmentes of ministration, to do seruice in the holy place: and made the holye garmentes for Aaron as the Lorde commaunded Moyses.

2And he made the Ephod of golde, blewe silke, purple, scarlet, and whyte twyned silke. 3And they dyd beate the golde into thinne plates, and cut it into wyers to worke it in the blewe silke, purple, scarlet, and in the fine whyte with brodered worke. 4And they made two sydes for it, to close them vp by the two edges. 5And the broderyng of the girdle that was vpon it, was of the same stuffe, and after the same worke, of golde, blewe silke, purple, scarlet, and twyned whyte silke, as the Lord comaunded Moyses.

6And they wrought Onyx stones closed in ouches of golde, and graued as signettes are grauen, with the names of the chyldren of Israel. 7And he put them on the shoulders of the Ephod, that they shoulde be stones for a remembraunce of the children of Israel, as the Lorde commaunded Moyses.

The Breastpiece
(Exodus 28:15–30)

8And he made the brestlap of brodered worke lyke the worke of the Ephod, euen of gold, blewe silke, purple, scarlet, and twyned whyte silke. 9It was foure square: and they made the brestlap double, an hande breadth long, and an hande breadth brode. 10And they fylled it with foure rowes of stones. The first rowe, a Sardius, a Topazius, and a Smaragdus. 11The seconde rowe, a Rubie, a Saphire, and a Diamonde. 12In the thirde rowe, a Lyncurius, an Achates, and an Amethyst. 13In the fourth rowe, a Turcas, an Onyx, and a Iaspis: and they were closed in ouches of golde in their inclosers. 14And the twelue stones were grauen as signets, with the names of the children of Israel, euery stone with his name, accordyng to the twelue tribes. 15And they made vpon the brestlap two fastenyng chaynes of writhen worke and pure golde. 16And they made two ouches of golde, and two golde ringes: and put the two ringes in ye two corners of the brestlap. 17And they put the two chaynes of golde in the two ringes in the corners of the brestlap. 18And the two endes of the two chaynes they fastened in the two ouches, and put them on the shoulders of the Ephod, vpon the forefront of it. 19And they made two ringes of golde, and put them on the two corners of the brestlap vpon the edge of it which was on the insyde by the Ephod. 20And they made two golden ringes, and put them on the two sydes of the Ephod, beneath on the fore syde of it, and ouer agaynst his felowe, aboue vpon the broderyng of the Ephod. 21And they strayned the brestlap by his ringes vnto the ringes of the Ephod with a lase of blewe silke, that it myght be vpon the broderyng of the Ephod, & that the brestlap shoulde not be loosed from of the Ephod, as the Lorde commaunded Moyses.

Additional Priestly Garments
(Exodus 28:31–43)

22And he made the tunicle vnto the Ephod of wouen worke, altogether of blewe silke: 23And there was a hole in the myddest of the tunicle, as the coller of a partlet, with a bande rounde about the coller, that it shoulde not rent. 24And in the tunicle they made hemmes with pomgranates of blewe silke, purple, scarlet, and whyte twyned silke. 25And they made litle belles of pure golde, and put them amongst the pomgranates rounde about vpon the edge of the tunicle. 26A bell and a pomgranate, a bell and a pomgranate rounde about the hemmes of the tunicle to minister in, as the Lord commaunded Moyses.

27And they made coates of fine whyte silke of wouen worke, for Aaron and his sonnes. 28And a mitre of fine whyte silke, and goodly bonettes of fine whyte silke, and lynnen sloppes of twyned whyte silke. 29And a girdle of twyned whyte silke, blew, purple, and scarlet, euen of needle worke, as the Lorde commaunded Moyses.

30And they made the plate of the holy crowne of fine golde, and wrote vpon it with grauen worke as signets are grauen, The holynes of the Lorde. 31And tyed vnto it a lase of blewe silk, to fasten it an hye vpon the mitre, as the Lorde commaunded Moyses.
