Exodus 39:8-14

Context
The Breastpiece of Decision

They were enclosed in gold filigree settings. 39:14 The stones were for the names of the sons of Israel, twelve, corresponding to the number of 2  their names. Each name corresponding to one of the twelve tribes was like the engravings of a seal.
