Exodus 39:1"And of the blue, and purple, and scarlet, they made cloths of service, to do service in the holy place, and made the holy garments for Aaron; as the Lord commanded Moses."
Exodus 39:2 "And he made the ephod of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen."

Exodus 39:8 "And he made the breastplate of cunning work, like the work of the ephod; of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen."
Exodus 39:9 "It was foursquare; they made the breastplate double: a span was the length thereof, and a span the breadth thereof, being doubled."

Exodus 39:21 "And they did bind the breastplate by his rings unto the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it might be above the curious girdle of the ephod, and that the breastplate might not be loosed from the ephod; as the Lord commanded Moses."
The Priest's Robe.
Exodus 39:22 "And he made the robe of the ephod of woven work, all of blue."
Exodus 39:23 "And there was an hole in the midst of the robe, as the hole of an habergeon, with a band round about the hole, that it should not rend."
Exodus 39:24 "And they made upon the hems of the robe pomegranates of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and twined linen."

Exodus 39:26 "A bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, round about the hem of the robe to minister in; as the Lord commanded Moses."
The rest of the Priest's Wardrobe.
Exodus 39:27 "And they made coats of mine linen of woven work for Aaron, and for his sons,"
Exodus 39:28 "And a miter of fine linen, and goodly bonnets of fine linen, and linen breeches of fine twined linen,"

Exodus 39:31 "And they tied unto it a lace of blue, to fasten it on high upon the mitre; as the Lord commanded Moses."
The Work Completed.
Exodus 39:32 "Thus was all the work on the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation finished: and the children of Israel did according to all that the Lord commanded Moses, so did they."
Exodus 39:33 "And they brought the tabernacle unto Moses, the tent, and all his furniture, his taches, his boards, his bars, and his pillars, and his sockets,"
Exodus 39:34 "And the covering of rams' skins dyed red, and the covering of badgers' skins, and the vail of the covering."
Exodus 39:35 "The ark of the testimony, and the staves thereof, and the mercy seat,"
Exodus 39:36 "The table, and all the vessels thereof, and the shewbread,"
Exodus 39:37 "the pure candlestick, with the lamps thereof, even with the lamps to be set in order, and all the vessels thereof, and the oil for light,"
Exodus 39:38 "And the golden altar, and the anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and the hanging for the tabernacle door,"
Exodus 39:39 "The brasen altar, and his grate of brass, his staves, and all his vessels, the laver and his foot,"
Exodus 39:40 "The hangings of the court, his pillars, and his sockets, and the hangings for the court gate, his cords, and his pins, and all the vessels of the service of the tabernacle, for the tent of the congregation,"
Exodus 39:41 "The cloths of service to do service in the holy place, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and his sons' garments, to minister in the priest's office."
Exodus 39:42 "According to all that the Lord commanded Moses, so the children of Israel made all the work."
Exodus 39:43 "And Moses did look upon all the work, and, behold, they had done it as the Lord had commanded, even so hand they done it: and Moses blessed them."
All the parts of the
tabernacle were completed exactly as God had commanded, and place the
wisdom for the completion of the work in the mind of Bezaleel, and his
helper Aholiab; as well as the rest of the skilled workers. Moses looked
upon what they had done, and blessed the workers for their willing
spirit and workmanship.
