Exodus 27:1-21
1. You shall make the altar of acacia wood, five cubits long and five cubits wide; the altar shall be square, and it shall be three cubits high.
2. You shall make horns for it on its four corners; its horns shall be of one piece with it, and you shall overlay it with bronze.
3. You shall make pots for it to receive its ashes, and shovels and basins and forks and firepans; you shall make all its utensils of bronze.
4. You shall also make for it a grating, a network of bronze; and on the net you shall make four bronze rings at its four corners.
5. You shall set it under the ledge of the altar so that the net shall extend halfway down the altar.
6. You shall make poles for the altar, poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with bronze;
7. the poles shall be put through the rings, so that the poles shall be on the two sides of the altar when it is carried.
8. You shall make it hollow, with boards. They shall be made just as you were shown on the mountain.
9. You shall make the court of the tabernacle. On the south side the court shall have hangings of fine twisted linen one hundred cubits long for that side;
10. its twenty pillars and their twenty bases shall be of bronze, but the hooks of the pillars and their bands shall be of silver.
11. Likewise for its length on the north side there shall be hangings one hundred cubits long, their pillars twenty and their bases twenty, of bronze, but the hooks of the pillars and their bands shall be of silver.
12. For the width of the court on the west side there shall be fifty cubits of hangings, with ten pillars and ten bases.
13. The width of the court on the front to the east shall be fifty cubits.
14. There shall be fifteen cubits of hangings on the one side, with three pillars and three bases.
15. There shall be fifteen cubits of hangings on the other side, with three pillars and three bases.
16. For the gate of the court there shall be a screen twenty cubits long, of blue, purple, and crimson yarns, and of fine twisted linen, embroidered with needlework; it shall have four pillars and with them four bases.
17. All the pillars around the court shall be banded with silver; their hooks shall be of silver, and their bases of bronze.
18. The length of the court shall be one hundred cubits, the width fifty, and the height five cubits, with hangings of fine twisted linen and bases of bronze.
19. All the utensils of the tabernacle for every use, and all its pegs and all the pegs of the court, shall be of bronze.
20. You shall further command the Israelites to bring you pure oil of beaten olives for the light, so that a lamp may be set up to burn regularly.
21. In the tent of meeting, outside the curtain that is before the covenant, Aaron and his sons shall tend it from evening to morning before the LORD. It shall be a perpetual ordinance to be observed throughout their generations by the Israelites.

Exodus 28:1-43
1. Then bring near to you your brother Aaron, and his sons with him, from among the Israelites, to serve me as priests-- Aaron and Aaron's sons, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar.
2. You shall make sacred vestments for the glorious adornment of your brother Aaron.
3. And you shall speak to all who have ability, whom I have endowed with skill, that they make Aaron's vestments to consecrate him for my priesthood.
4. These are the vestments that they shall make: a breastpiece, an ephod, a robe, a checkered tunic, a turban, and a sash. When they make these sacred vestments for your brother Aaron and his sons to serve me as priests,
5. they shall use gold, blue, purple, and crimson yarns, and fine linen.
6. They shall make the ephod of gold, of blue, purple, and crimson yarns, and of fine twisted linen, skillfully worked.
7. It shall have two shoulder-pieces attached to its two edges, so that it may be joined together.
8. The decorated band on it shall be of the same workmanship and materials, of gold, of blue, purple, and crimson yarns, and of fine twisted linen.
9. You shall take two onyx stones, and engrave on them the names of the sons of Israel,
10. six of their names on the one stone, and the names of the remaining six on the other stone, in the order of their birth.
11. As a gem-cutter engraves signets, so you shall engrave the two stones with the names of the sons of Israel; you shall mount them in settings of gold filigree.
12. You shall set the two stones on the shoulder-pieces of the ephod, as stones of remembrance for the sons of Israel; and Aaron shall bear their names before the LORD on his two shoulders for remembrance.
13. You shall make settings of gold filigree,
14. and two chains of pure gold, twisted like cords; and you shall attach the corded chains to the settings.
15. You shall make a breastpiece of judgment, in skilled work; you shall make it in the style of the ephod; of gold, of blue and purple and crimson yarns, and of fine twisted linen you shall make it.
16. It shall be square and doubled, a span in length and a span in width.
17. You shall set in it four rows of stones. A row of carnelian, chrysolite, and emerald shall be the first row;
18. and the second row a turquoise, a sapphire and a moonstone;
19. and the third row a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst;
20. and the fourth row a beryl, an onyx, and a jasper; they shall be set in gold filigree.
21. There shall be twelve stones with names corresponding to the names of the sons of Israel; they shall be like signets, each engraved with its name, for the twelve tribes.
22. You shall make for the breastpiece chains of pure gold, twisted like cords;
23. and you shall make for the breastpiece two rings of gold, and put the two rings on the two edges of the breastpiece.
24. You shall put the two cords of gold in the two rings at the edges of the breastpiece;
25. the two ends of the two cords you shall attach to the two settings, and so attach it in front to the shoulder-pieces of the ephod.
26. You shall make two rings of gold, and put them at the two ends of the breastpiece, on its inside edge next to the ephod.
27. You shall make two rings of gold, and attach them in front to the lower part of the two shoulder-pieces of the ephod, at its joining above the decorated band of the ephod.
28. The breastpiece shall be bound by its rings to the rings of the ephod with a blue cord, so that it may lie on the decorated band of the ephod, and so that the breastpiece shall not come loose from the ephod.
29. So Aaron shall bear the names of the sons of Israel in the breastpiece of judgment on his heart when he goes into the holy place, for a continual remembrance before the LORD.
30. In the breastpiece of judgment you shall put the Urim and the Thummim, and they shall be on Aaron's heart when he goes in before the LORD; thus Aaron shall bear the judgment of the Israelites on his heart before the LORD continually.
31. You shall make the robe of the ephod all of blue.
32. It shall have an opening for the head in the middle of it, with a woven binding around the opening, like the opening in a coat of mail, so that it may not be torn.
33. On its lower hem you shall make pomegranates of blue, purple, and crimson yarns, all around the lower hem, with bells of gold between them all around--
34. a golden bell and a pomegranate alternating all around the lower hem of the robe.
35. Aaron shall wear it when he ministers, and its sound shall be heard when he goes into the holy place before the LORD, and when he comes out, so that he may not die.
36. You shall make a rosette of pure gold, and engrave on it, like the engraving of a signet, "Holy to the LORD."
37. You shall fasten it on the turban with a blue cord; it shall be on the front of the turban.
38. It shall be on Aaron's forehead, and Aaron shall take on himself any guilt incurred in the holy offering that the Israelites consecrate as their sacred donations; it shall always be on his forehead, in order that they may find favor before the LORD.
39. You shall make the checkered tunic of fine linen, and you shall make a turban of fine linen, and you shall make a sash embroidered with needlework.
40. For Aaron's sons you shall make tunics and sashes and headdresses; you shall make them for their glorious adornment.
41. You shall put them on your brother Aaron, and on his sons with him, and shall anoint them and ordain them and consecrate them, so that they may serve me as priests.
42. You shall make for them linen undergarments to cover their naked flesh; they shall reach from the hips to the thighs;
43. Aaron and his sons shall wear them when they go into the tent of meeting, or when they come near the altar to minister in the holy place; or they will bring guilt on themselves and die. This shall be a perpetual ordinance for him and for his descendants after him.

Psalms 20:1-5
1. The LORD answer you in the day of trouble! The name of the God of Jacob protect you!
2. May he send you help from the sanctuary, and give you support from Zion.
3. May he remember all your offerings, and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices. Selah
4. May he grant you your heart's desire, and fulfill all your plans.
5. May we shout for joy over your victory, and in the name of our God set up our banners. May the LORD fulfill all your petitions.

Proverbs 7:1-5
1. My child, keep my words and store up my commandments with you;
2. keep my commandments and live, keep my teachings as the apple of your eye;
3. bind them on your fingers, write them on the tablet of your heart.
4. Say to wisdom, "You are my sister," and call insight your intimate friend,
5. that they may keep you from the loose woman, from the adulteress with her smooth words.

Matthew 24:29-51
29. "Immediately after the suffering of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven will be shaken.
30. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see 'the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven' with power and great glory.
31. And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
32. "From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near.
33. So also, when you see all these things, you know that he is near, at the very gates.
34. Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place.
35. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
36. "But about that day and hour no one knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
37. For as the days of Noah were, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.
38. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark,
39. and they knew nothing until the flood came and swept them all away, so too will be the coming of the Son of Man.
40. Then two will be in the field; one will be taken and one will be left.
41. Two women will be grinding meal together; one will be taken and one will be left.
42. Keep awake therefore, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming.
43. But understand this: if the owner of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into.
44. Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an unexpected hour.
45. "Who then is the faithful and wise slave, whom his master has put in charge of his household, to give the other slaves their allowance of food at the proper time?
46. Blessed is that slave whom his master will find at work when he arrives.
47. Truly I tell you, he will put that one in charge of all his possessions.
48. But if that wicked slave says to himself, 'My master is delayed,'
49. and he begins to beat his fellow slaves, and eats and drinks with drunkards,
50. the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour that he does not know.
51. He will cut him in pieces and put him with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
