Exodus 28:9

Context

28:9 “You are to take two onyx stones and engrave on them the names of the sons of Israel, 1 

Exodus 28:20

Context
28:20 and the fourth row, a chrysolite, an onyx, and a jasper. 2  They are to be enclosed in gold in their filigree settings.

1 tn Although this is normally translated “Israelites,” here a more literal translation is clearer because it refers to the names of the twelve tribes – the actual sons of Israel.

2 sn U. Cassuto (Exodus, 375-76) points out that these are the same precious stones mentioned in Ezek 28:13 that were to be found in Eden, the garden of God. So the priest, when making atonement, was to wear the precious gems that were there and symbolized the garden of Eden when man was free from sin.
