Exodus 28 Garments, Two Stones, and the Khoshen


Garments, Two Stones, and the Khoshen

 

Throughout this text, Yehovah is commanding someone identified as thou to do all these various things. Who is this thou, and how in the world can he do all these things?

 

Background and printed text: Exodus 28

 

Exodus 28:1 And thou: make– Aharon thy brother and his sons with him –approach unto thee from the midst of the children of Israel to priest him to me—Aharon, He-Liberally-Gave [Nadav] and My-Father-Is-He [Avi-Hu], Mighty-[One]-Helped [El-Azar] and Where-Is-The-Palm? [Ee-Tamar], the sons of Aharon.

 

2And thou shalt make garments of the Holy-[One] for Aharon thy brother for Importance and for Brightness. 3And thou—thou shalt speak unto all wise-[ones] of heart whom I filled him, Spirit of Wisdom. And they shall make the garments of Aharon to sanctify him to priest him to me.

 

4And these are the garments that they shall make: a Silencer-Hastener and an I-Will-Redeem [via force] and an Ascender and a Cotton-Garment thou shalt interweave, a Winding, and a Father-Inclined. And they shall make garments of a Holy-[One] to Aharon thy brother and to his sons to priest him to me.

 

5And they—they shall take the gold and the blue and the purple and the second earthworm [earthworm crimson] and the byssus. 6And they shall make the I-Will-Redeem [via force] gold, blue and purple, earthworm crimson and byssus of the groping of a stranger, the doing of a thinker. 7He shall be two fellowshipped shoulders to him unto two of his edges. And he shall be fellowshipped. 8And the thinker of his I-Will-Redeem [via force] that is upon him—as his doer from him—shall be gold, blue and purple and a second earthworm [earthworm crimson], and byssus of the groping of a stranger.

 

9And thou shalt take two stones of onyx. And thou shalt open names of the children of Israel upon them: 10six from their names upon the one stone, and names of the six of the remaining-ones upon the second stone according to their childing, 11work of an engraver of stone. Thou shalt open two of the stones, openings of a signet, upon names of the children of Israel. Thou shalt make them encompassed from weavings of gold. 12And thou shalt put two of the stones upon the shoulders of the I-Will-Redeem [via force], stones of remembrance to the children of Israel. And Aharon shall carry their names to the faces of Yehovah upon two of his shoulders to a remembrance.

 

13And thou shalt make weavings of gold 14and two chain-links of pure gold from the borders. Thou shalt make them the work of a rope. And thou shalt give the chain-links of the ropes upon the weavings.

 

15And thou shalt make the Silencer-Hastener of Justice, the doing of a thinker. Thou shalt make him as the doing of the I-Will-Redeem [via force]. Thou shalt make him gold, blue and purple, and the second earthworm [earthworm crimson], and byssus of the groping of a stranger. 16He shall be stretched-out, doubled, a scattering of his length and a scattering of his breadth. 17And thou shalt fill into him the filling of a stone—four tours, a stone of a tour: ruby [red, man], topaz [paled her], and an emerald [and thou shalt lightning], the one tour. 18And the second tour is a garnet [he moved thee to and fro], a sapphire [cerulean, a recorder], and a diamond [and he smote into pieces]. 19And the third tour an opal [he tasted], an agate [his return, his captivity], and an amethyst [and I dreamed her]. 20And the fourth tour: a beryl [Tarshish, thou wilt break down to pieces], and an onyx [he will be pale], and a jasper [and he polished her]. Weavings are gold! They shall be in their fillings. 21And the stones shall be upon the names of the children of Israel—twelve upon their names, openings of a signet. They shall be a man upon his name to the twelve, a tribe.

 

22And thou shalt make a chain-link of a border upon the Silencer-Hastener, the work of a rope of pure gold. 23And thou shalt make two sunk-impressions of gold upon the Silencer-Hastener. And thou shalt give two of the sunk-impressions upon two of the edges of the Silencer-Hastener. 24And thou shalt give two ropes of the gold upon two of the sunk-impressions unto the edges of the Silencer-Hastener. 25And thou shalt give two of the edges, two of the ropes upon two of the weavings. And thou shalt give upon the shoulders of the I-Will-Redeem [via force] unto the frontmost of his faces. 26And thou shalt make two sunk-impressions of gold. And thou shalt put them upon two edges of the Silencer-Hastener upon his lips that are unto-over the I-Will-Redeem [via force] inside her. 27And thou shalt make two sunk-impressions of gold. And thou shalt give them upon two of the shoulders of the I-Will-Redeem [via force] below, from in front of his faces opposite his fellowshipment, from above to the thinker of the I-Will-Redeem [via force]. 28And they shall connect the Silencer-Hastener from his sunk-impression unto the sunk-impression of the I-Will-Redeem [via force] with a twine of blue to be upon the thinker of the I-Will-Redeem [via force]. And the Silencer-Hastener shall not be loosed from upon the I-Will-Redeem [via force].

 

29And Aharon shall carry the names of the children of Israel via the Silencer-Hastener of the justice upon his heart in his coming unto the Holy for a remembrance to the faces of Yehovah continually.

 

30And thou shalt give the Lights and the Perfections unto the Silencer-Hastener of the Justice. And they shall be upon Aharon’s heart in his coming to the faces of Yehovah. And Aharon shall carry the justice of the children of Israel upon his heart to the faces of Yehovah continually.

 

31And thou shalt make the Ascender of the I-Will-Redeem [via force] entirely blue. 32And the mouth of his head shall be in his midst. A lip shall be to his mouth around, the work of a braider. He will be to him as the mouth of a corselet; he will not be torn.

 

33And thou shalt make exaltations [pomegranates] of blue and purple upon his skirts, and a second earthworm [earthworm crimson] upon his skirts around, and strikers [bells] of gold in their midst around—34a striker of gold and an exaltation [pomegranate], a striker of gold and an exaltation [pomegranate] upon the skirts of the Ascender around. 35And he shall be upon Aharon to minister. And his voice shall be heard in his coming unto the Holy to the faces of Yehovah, and in his going out. And he will not die.

 

36And thou shalt make a pure gold flower. And thou shalt open upon him openings of a signet, “Holy to Yehovah.” 37And thou shalt put him upon a blue twine. And he shall be upon the Winding. He shall be unto the front of the faces of the Winding. 38And he shall be upon the forehead of Aharon. And Aharon shall carry the iniquity of the holies that the Children of Israel shall sanctify, to all their gifts of their holies. And he shall always be upon his forehead to a desire to them to the faces of Yehovah.

 

39And thou shalt weave the Cotton-Garment of byssus. And thou shalt make a Winding of byssus. And thou shalt make a Father-Inclined, the work of a variegater. 40And thou shalt make Cotton-Garments to the sons of Aharon. And thou shalt make ‘Father-Inclineds’ to them. And thou shalt make From-The-Hills to them to Importance and to Brightness.

 

41And thou shalt clothe them—Aharon thy brother and his sons with him. And thou shalt anoint them. And thou shalt fill their hand. And thou shalt sanctify them. And they shall priest to me.

 

42And make thou pants of linen to them to cover the flesh of nakedness. They shall be from loins and unto thighs. 43And they shall be upon Aharon and upon his sons via their coming unto the Tent of Appointment or via their approaching unto the altar to minister via the Holy-[One]. And they shall not carry iniquity and die, a statute of Hider to him and to his seed after him.

 

 

 

I. Approaching ‘to Priest’ (verse 1)

 

Yehovah commands Moshe to cause Aharon his brother and Aharon’s sons to approach to Moshe. They will come from the midst of the children of Israel. Their assignment is to priest to Yehovah. Yehovah then names the ones that must come: Aharon, Nadav, Avi-Hu, El-Azar, and Ee-Tamar.

 

 

 

Questions

 

1.    Throughout this text, Yehovah is commanding someone identified as thou to do all these various things. Who is this thou, and how in the world can he do all these things?

 

2.    Why must Aharon and his sons be made to approach specifically from the midst of the children of Israel?

 

3.    Put the meanings of the names together; what statements do they form?

 

 

 

II. Garments of Aharon (verses 2-3)

 

Yehovah commands Moshe to make garments of the Holy One for Aharon Moshe’s brother. Those garments are for two purposes: for importance and for brightness.

 

Moshe himself must speak unto all wise ones of heart, each one whom Yehovah filled; they are filled with the Spirit of Wisdom. They are the ones who will make the garments of Aharon. Those garments will sanctify Aharon (will cause Aharon to be owned) for the purpose of Aharon being ‘priested’—that is, being set into the responsibility of being a priest—to Yehovah.

They, the wise men in whom is the Spirit of Wisdom, are commanded to take the following:

 

  • Gold

11. Why must this article of clothing known as the thinker be made of the same materials and colors as the ayfod?

 

 

 

V. Two Stones of Remembrance (verses 9-12)

 

Moshe next must take two onyx stones. The names of the children of Israel must be opened upon them. Six from their names is upon the one stone, and the names of the six remaining ones is upon the second stone according to the order of the birth of the names of the tribes. This will be accomplished by an engraver of stone.

 

Moshe must open (cut into the onyx stones) two of the stones, the openings of a signet, upon names of the children of Israel.

 

He must make them encompassed (surrounded) from weavings of gold!

 

Those two stones must be put upon the shoulders of the Ayfod; they are stones of remembrance to the children of Israel!

VI. Gold Rope Weavings (verses 13-14)

 

Moshe must make weavings of gold. There will be two chain links of pure gold that connect to the borders. These gold weavings must be the work of a rope! Then Moshe must give the chain links of the ropes upon the weavings!

  • Gold
  • Blue
  • Purple
  • A second earthworm [earthworm crimson]
  • Byssus of the groping of a stranger

This Silencer-Hastener of Justice must be stretched out! It must be doubled! It must be a scattering of his length and a scattering of his breadth!

 

Stone fillings (settings) must fill this Silencer-Hastener of Justice.

 

There will be four tours (four paths), each stone of a tour:

 

Ruby

Topaz

 

Emerald

 

Garnet

 

Sapphire

 

Diamond

 

Opal

 

Agate

 

Amethyst

 

Beryl

VIII. More Sunk-Impressions (verses 22-28)

 

Yehovah next commands Moshe to make a chain link of a border upon the Silencer-Hastener. This must be the work of a pure gold rope!

 

Next, he must make two sunk-impressions of gold upon the Silencer-Hastener. He must give two of the sunk impressions upon two of the edges of the Silencer-Hastener.

 

Moshe must give two ropes of the gold upon two of the sunk impressions that are positioned unto the edges of the Silencer-Hastener.

 

Next, he must give two of the edges, two of the ropes. These must be upon two of the weavings.

 

Moshe must give these upon the shoulders of the Khoshen, unto the frontmost of the Khoshen’s faces.

 

Next, he must again make two sunk impressions of gold, and he must put them upon two edges of the Silencer-Hastener, upon his lips that are both unto and over the Khoshen, inside of her.

 

Moshe must again make two sunk impressions of gold. And he will give them upon two of the shoulders of the Khoshen below, just a little distance from directly in front of his faces, and on the opposite side of his fellowshipment, and just a little distance from above to the thinking of the Khoshen.

 

The wise men doing the work will connect the Silencer-Hastener from his sunk impression unto the sunk impression of the Khoshen using a twine of blue so that it will be upon the thinker of the Khoshen! This way, the Silencer-Hastener will not be loosed from upon the Khoshen!
