Exodus 39:1-43
1. From the blue, purple and scarlet yarn they made woven garments for ministering in the sanctuary. They also made sacred garments for Aaron, as the LORD commanded Moses.
2. They made the ephod of gold, and of blue, purple and scarlet yarn, and of finely twisted linen.
3. They hammered out thin sheets of gold and cut strands to be worked into the blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen-the work of a skilled craftsman.
4. They made shoulder pieces for the ephod, which were attached to two of its corners, so it could be fastened.
5. Its skillfully woven waistband was like it-of one piece with the ephod and made with gold, and with blue, purple and scarlet yarn, and with finely twisted linen, as the LORD commanded Moses.
6. They mounted the onyx stones in gold filigree settings and engraved them like a seal with the names of the sons of Israel.
7. Then they fastened them on the shoulder pieces of the ephod as memorial stones for the sons of Israel, as the LORD commanded Moses.
8. They fashioned the breastpiece-the work of a skilled craftsman. They made it like the ephod: of gold, and of blue, purple and scarlet yarn, and of finely twisted linen.
9. It was square-a span long and a span wide-and folded double.
10. Then they mounted four rows of precious stones on it. In the first row there was a ruby, a topaz and a beryl;
11. in the second row a turquoise, a sapphire and an emerald;
12. in the third row a jacinth, an agate and an amethyst;
13. in the fourth row a chrysolite, an onyx and a jasper. They were mounted in gold filigree settings.
14. There were twelve stones, one for each of the names of the sons of Israel, each engraved like a seal with the name of one of the twelve tribes.
15. For the breastpiece they made braided chains of pure gold, like a rope.
16. They made two gold filigree settings and two gold rings, and fastened the rings to two of the corners of the breastpiece.
17. They fastened the two gold chains to the rings at the corners of the breastpiece,
18. and the other ends of the chains to the two settings, attaching them to the shoulder pieces of the ephod at the front.
19. They made two gold rings and attached them to the other two corners of the breastpiece on the inside edge next to the ephod.
20. Then they made two more gold rings and attached them to the bottom of the shoulder pieces on the front of the ephod, close to the seam just above the waistband of the ephod.
21. They tied the rings of the breastpiece to the rings of the ephod with blue cord, connecting it to the waistband so that the breastpiece would not swing out from the ephod-as the LORD commanded Moses.
22. They made the robe of the ephod entirely of blue cloth-the work of a weaver-
23. with an opening in the center of the robe like the opening of a collar, and a band around this opening, so that it would not tear.
24. They made pomegranates of blue, purple and scarlet yarn and finely twisted linen around the hem of the robe.
25. And they made bells of pure gold and attached them around the hem between the pomegranates.
26. The bells and pomegranates alternated around the hem of the robe to be worn for ministering, as the LORD commanded Moses.
27. For Aaron and his sons, they made tunics of fine linen-the work of a weaver-
28. and the turban of fine linen, the linen headbands and the undergarments of finely twisted linen.
29. The sash was of finely twisted linen and blue, purple and scarlet yarn-the work of an embroiderer-as the LORD commanded Moses.
30. They made the plate, the sacred diadem, out of pure gold and engraved on it, like an inscription on a seal: HOLY TO THE LORD.
31. Then they fastened a blue cord to it to attach it to the turban, as the LORD commanded Moses.
32. So all the work on the tabernacle, the Tent of Meeting, was completed. The Israelites did everything just as the LORD commanded Moses.
33. Then they brought the tabernacle to Moses: the tent and all its furnishings, its clasps, frames, crossbars, posts and bases;
34. the covering of ram skins dyed red, the covering of hides of sea cows and the shielding curtain;
35. the ark of the Testimony with its poles and the atonement cover;
36. the table with all its articles and the bread of the Presence;
37. the pure gold lampstand with its row of lamps and all its accessories, and the oil for the light;
38. the gold altar, the anointing oil, the fragrant incense, and the curtain for the entrance to the tent;
39. the bronze altar with its bronze grating, its poles and all its utensils; the basin with its stand;
40. the curtains of the courtyard with its posts and bases, and the curtain for the entrance to the courtyard; the ropes and tent pegs for the courtyard; all the furnishings for the tabernacle, the Tent of Meeting;
41. and the woven garments worn for ministering in the sanctuary, both the sacred garments for Aaron the priest and the garments for his sons when serving as priests.
42. The Israelites had done all the work just as the LORD had commanded Moses.
43. Moses inspected the work and saw that they had done it just as the LORD had commanded. So Moses blessed them.

Exodus 40:1-38
1. Then the LORD said to Moses:
2. "Set up the tabernacle, the Tent of Meeting, on the first day of the first month.
3. Place the ark of the Testimony in it and shield the ark with the curtain.
4. Bring in the table and set out what belongs on it. Then bring in the lampstand and set up its lamps.
5. Place the gold altar of incense in front of the ark of the Testimony and put the curtain at the entrance to the tabernacle.
6. "Place the altar of burnt offering in front of the entrance to the tabernacle, the Tent of Meeting;
7. place the basin between the Tent of Meeting and the altar and put water in it.
8. Set up the courtyard around it and put the curtain at the entrance to the courtyard.
9. "Take the anointing oil and anoint the tabernacle and everything in it; consecrate it and all its furnishings, and it will be holy.
10. Then anoint the altar of burnt offering and all its utensils; consecrate the altar, and it will be most holy.
11. Anoint the basin and its stand and consecrate them.
12. "Bring Aaron and his sons to the entrance to the Tent of Meeting and wash them with water.
13. Then dress Aaron in the sacred garments, anoint him and consecrate him so he may serve me as priest.
14. Bring his sons and dress them in tunics.
15. Anoint them just as you anointed their father, so they may serve me as priests. Their anointing will be to a priesthood that will continue for all generations to come."
16. Moses did everything just as the LORD commanded him.
17. So the tabernacle was set up on the first day of the first month in the second year.
18. When Moses set up the tabernacle, he put the bases in place, erected the frames, inserted the crossbars and set up the posts.
19. Then he spread the tent over the tabernacle and put the covering over the tent, as the LORD commanded him.
20. He took the Testimony and placed it in the ark, attached the poles to the ark and put the atonement cover over it.
21. Then he brought the ark into the tabernacle and hung the shielding curtain and shielded the ark of the Testimony, as the LORD commanded him.
22. Moses placed the table in the Tent of Meeting on the north side of the tabernacle outside the curtain
23. and set out the bread on it before the LORD, as the LORD commanded him.
24. He placed the lampstand in the Tent of Meeting opposite the table on the south side of the tabernacle
25. and set up the lamps before the LORD, as the LORD commanded him.
26. Moses placed the gold altar in the Tent of Meeting in front of the curtain
27. and burned fragrant incense on it, as the LORD commanded him.
28. Then he put up the curtain at the entrance to the tabernacle.
29. He set the altar of burnt offering near the entrance to the tabernacle, the Tent of Meeting, and offered on it burnt offerings and grain offerings, as the LORD commanded him.
30. He placed the basin between the Tent of Meeting and the altar and put water in it for washing,
31. and Moses and Aaron and his sons used it to wash their hands and feet.
32. They washed whenever they entered the Tent of Meeting or approached the altar, as the LORD commanded Moses.
33. Then Moses set up the courtyard around the tabernacle and altar and put up the curtain at the entrance to the courtyard. And so Moses finished the work.
34. Then the cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.
35. Moses could not enter the Tent of Meeting because the cloud had settled upon it, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
36. In all the travels of the Israelites, whenever the cloud lifted from above the tabernacle, they would set out;
37. but if the cloud did not lift, they did not set out-until the day it lifted.
38. So the cloud of the LORD was over the tabernacle by day, and fire was in the cloud by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel during all their travels.

Psalms 22:16-21
16. Dogs have surrounded me; a band of evil men has encircled me, they have pierced my hands and my feet.
17. I can count all my bones; people stare and gloat over me.
18. They divide my garments among them and cast lots for my clothing.
19. But you, O LORD, be not far off; O my Strength, come quickly to help me.
20. Deliver my life from the sword, my precious life from the power of the dogs.
21. Rescue me from the mouth of the lions; save me from the horns of the wild oxen.

Proverbs 8:22-31
22. "The LORD brought me forth as the first of his works,, before his deeds of old;
23. I was appointed from eternity, from the beginning, before the world began.
24. When there were no oceans, I was given birth, when there were no springs abounding with water;
25. before the mountains were settled in place, before the hills, I was given birth,
26. before he made the earth or its fields or any of the dust of the world.
27. I was there when he set the heavens in place, when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep,
28. when he established the clouds above and fixed securely the fountains of the deep,
29. when he gave the sea its boundary so the waters would not overstep his command, and when he marked out the foundations of the earth.
30. Then I was the craftsman at his side. I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in his presence,
31. rejoicing in his whole world and delighting in mankind.

Matthew 27:1-26
1. Early in the morning, all the chief priests and the elders of the people came to the decision to put Jesus to death.
2. They bound him, led him away and handed him over to Pilate, the governor.
3. When Judas, who had betrayed him, saw that Jesus was condemned, he was seized with remorse and returned the thirty silver coins to the chief priests and the elders.
4. "I have sinned," he said, "for I have betrayed innocent blood.What is that to us?" they replied. "That's your responsibility."
5. So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself.
6. The chief priests picked up the coins and said, "It is against the law to put this into the treasury, since it is blood money."
7. So they decided to use the money to buy the potter's field as a burial place for foreigners.
8. That is why it has been called the Field of Blood to this day.
9. Then what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled: "They took the thirty silver coins, the price set on him by the people of Israel,
10. and they used them to buy the potter's field, as the Lord commanded me."
11. Meanwhile Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor asked him, "Are you the king of the Jews?Yes, it is as you say," Jesus replied.
12. When he was accused by the chief priests and the elders, he gave no answer.
13. Then Pilate asked him, "Don't you hear the testimony they are bringing against you?"
14. But Jesus made no reply, not even to a single charge--to the great amazement of the governor.
15. Now it was the governor's custom at the Feast to release a prisoner chosen by the crowd.
16. At that time they had a notorious prisoner, called Barabbas.
17. So when the crowd had gathered, Pilate asked them, "Which one do you want me to release to you: Barabbas, or Jesus who is called Christ?"
18. For he knew it was out of envy that they had handed Jesus over to him.
19. While Pilate was sitting on the judge's seat, his wife sent him this message: "Don't have anything to do with that innocent man, for I have suffered a great deal today in a dream because of him."
20. But the chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowd to ask for Barabbas and to have Jesus executed.
21. "Which of the two do you want me to release to you?" asked the governor. "Barabbas," they answered.
22. "What shall I do, then, with Jesus who is called Christ?" Pilate asked. They all answered, "Crucify him!"
23. "Why? What crime has he committed?" asked Pilate. But they shouted all the louder, "Crucify him!"
24. When Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but that instead an uproar was starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd. "I am innocent of this man's blood," he said. "It is your responsibility!"
25. All the people answered, "Let his blood be on us and on our children!"
26. Then he released Barabbas to them. But he had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified.
