It’s a little difficult to follow the description and specifications of furniture and robes. If the Tabernacle was amazingly grand and beautiful, so were the garments of the priests who ministered there. Aaron, the high priest, was dressed fitting one who entered the throne room of God and who stood as mediator between him and the people. With 12 jewels set in gold on his chest, engraved onyx stones on his shoulders, the best blue, purple and gold cloth, the high priest definitely commanded attention and awe. The names of the tribes engraved on both the shoulder pieces and the ephod reminded him who he represented and served to bear all of Israel before God when he ministered in the Tabernacle. And the priests who served alongside Aaron, his sons, were also dressed accordingly. The consecration ceremonies were just as striking and inspiring. A week of worship, sacrifices, washing, anointing, and though it’s not mentioned, I imagine singing.
