God designated Aaron and his sons Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar to be priests and he told Moses to make a special garment for Aaron to wear with a breastplate, two joined sholderpieces with an onyx stone each engraved with the names of the children of Israel and set in ouches of gold, sitting on a blue ephod of fine linen that is gold and blue and purple and scarlet, a robe, a broidered coat, a mitre with a gold plate that says HOLINESS TO THE LORD, and a girdle.

God said the breastplate should have one row with a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle, a second row with an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond, a third row a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst, and a fourth row a beryl, and an onyx, and a jasper. The stones should be set in gold with the names of the children of Israel engraved on them. And the breastplate was to have two chains and two rings and two ouches of gold.

And Moses was supposed to bind the breastplate by the rings thereof unto the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it may be above the curious girdle of the ephod, and that the breastplate be not loosed from the ephod. Also he was supposed to put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim and the Thummim so they would be upon Aaron's heart when he went in to talk to God.

Beneath the hem of the blue ephod Moses was to make pomegranates of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, round about the hem thereof; and bells of gold between them round about, and golden bells and a pomegranates shall be upon the hem of the robe round about. As for Aaron's sons Moses was told to make coats and girdles, and bonnets for glory and for beauty, plus linen breeches to cover their nakedness from the loins even unto the thighs.
