V. 1-7 What amazing ability they had...to make thread out of gold. Remember that this took place over 3,000 years ago. Man has not "evolved" upward. He is a creature from God, and from the beginning had mental and physical abilities equal to (if not better than) men of today. God gave the ability.
V. 8-21 These men could work with these precious gems with ease. Yet today the world's best lapidaries (people who study stones) do not know what all these twelve stones are.
V. 22-26 When Aaron was inside "the Holiest of all" alone with Jehovah, his movements would produce sounds from the bells. Every sound was next to a fruit. In Christ every act was fruitful to God throughout His life. Is the fruit of the Spirit seen in us too Gal. 5:22-2322But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. (Galatians 5:22‑23)?
V. 27-31 The words "fine linen" include the meaning of "whiteness". The pure gold engraved with "Holiness", set on blue which was on the white "miter" or "turban" on the priest's head, would surely be a beautiful sight! This is Christ in His deity, spotless humanity, eternal Sonship, the Holy One, our Priest.
V. 32-43 Obedience to God's Word always brings blessing.
