Reading along with us in Exodus? Here’s today’s reading:

Exodus 39 (ESV)

From the blue and purple and scarlet yarns they made finely woven garments, for ministering in the Holy Place. They made the holy garments for Aaron, as the Lord had commanded Moses.

2 He made the ephod of gold, blue and purple and scarlet yarns, and fine twined linen. 3 And they hammered out gold leaf, and he cut it into threads to work into the blue and purple and the scarlet yarns, and into the fine twined linen, in skilled design. 4 They made for the ephod attaching shoulder pieces, joined to it at its two edges. 5 And the skillfully woven band on it was of one piece with it and made like it, of gold, blue and purple and scarlet yarns, and fine twined linen, as the Lord had commanded Moses.

6 They made the onyx stones, enclosed in settings of gold filigree, and engraved like the engravings of a signet, according to the names of the sons of Israel. 7 And he set them on the shoulder pieces of the ephod to be stones of remembrance for the sons of Israel, as the Lord had commanded Moses… Continue Reading

  1. I love that Pompoms come from God’s design and styled after pomegranates!
    43And Moses saw all the work, and behold, they had done it; as the Lord had commanded, so had they done it.
    And they were blessed.

  2. God could have simply called the existence of the tabernacle out of nothing yet He chose to give the skill and knowledge to people who then obeyed and built it with exquisite detail

  3. Great point Jim and I certainly agree. I read chapters 36-40 and the same point was reinforced to me. God described the way it should be done and they did it. What a great pattern for our own obedience. I believe that is why it is described in great detail both in what is commanded and what the Israelite craftsmen then did. And all things reinforcing the glory of God and things pleasing to Him.
    What a lesson that is for me/us as we approach our own relationship with God.

    I was also struck like Melanie just how much material this took, how beautiful it would be, and how gracious the people were in their giving. And even though this is the tabernacle, how much does this reflect what the Bible describes as the temple that is in heaven? Good point for discussion
