God’s Tabernacle Design: Priestly Garments

Exodus 28


1-5 | Setting apart Aaron and his sons as priests; Design of the priestly garments
6-14 | Design of the ephod
15-30 | Design of the breastpiece of judgment
31-35 | Design of the robe of the ephod
36-38 | Design of the turban
39 | Design of the tunic
40-43 | Design of the tunics, caps, and linen breeches for Aaron’s sons


God continues giving His specific design for the tabernacle in this chapter and in particular in regard to the garments of the High Priest and other priests—Aaron and his sons.  Here again that God had a specific design in mind for the house of worship, even the garments that the priest was suppose to wear.  By way of reminder …

v2 “You shall make … “

v3 “You shall speak … “

v9 “You shall take … “

v11 “… you shall engrave …”

v12 “You shall put … “

v13 “You shall make … “

v14 “… you shall make … “

v15 “You shall make … you shall make … you shall make it.”

v17 “You shall mount … “

v22 “You shall make … “

v23 “You shall make … “

v24 “You shall put … “

v25 “You shall put … “

v26 “You shall make … “

v27 “You shall make … “

v30 “You shall put … “

v31 “You shall make … “

v33 “You shall make … “

v36 “You shall also make … “

v37 “You shall fasten … “

v39 “You shall weave … “

v40 “For Aaron’s sons you shall make … you shall also make … and you shall make … “

v41 “You shall put … you shall anoint … “

v42 “You shall make … they shall reach … “

Again, I am reminded of a passage from Psalm 127.

Psalms 127:1 NASB A Song of Ascents, of Solomon. Unless the LORD builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman keeps awake in vain.

In particular, this psalm is addressing the making of a family and home life but the principle remains the same.  Without God directing those doing the work, it will amount to nothing.

Lord, may I never seek to build “my” church, a church the way I think it should be, but help me to be Your partner in building Your church the way You want it to be. May Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven, in Jesus’ name. Amen
