The High Priest Chestpiece ~ "Ephod".
God' instruction to Aaron the High Priest.
"And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:
Then, with the most careful workmanship make a chestpiece.
Use the same materials as you did for the Ephod: fine linen cloth
embroidered with gold thread and blue, purple, and scarlet yarn.
You shall set in it settings of stones, four rows of stones: a row of
odem, pitdah, and bareket shall be the first row; and the second row a
nofech, a sappir, and an yahalom; and the third row a lehshem, an shebu,
and an achlamah; and the fourth row a tarshish, an shoham, and a yishpah:
All these stones will be set in gold.
The stones shall be according to the names of the children of Israel
twelve. Each stone will represent one of the tribes of Israel, and the
name of that tribe will be engraved on it as though it were a seal."
These are the twelve tribes and stones in Hebrew and their attributes:
Rueben ~ Odem ~ Ruby ~ Salvation
