  1. Priestly breastplate

    The priestly breastplate or breastpiece of judgment (Hebrew: חֹשֶׁן ḥōšen) was a sacred breastplate worn by the High Priest of the Israelites, according to the Book of Exodus. In the biblical account, the breastplate is termed the breastplate of judgment (Hebrew: חֹשֶׁן מִשְׁפָּט ḥōšen mišpāṭ - Exodus 28:15), because the Urim and Thummim (Hebrew: הָאוּרִים וְהַתֻּמִּים hāʾūrīm wəhattummīm) were placed upon it.(Exodus 28:30). These elements of the breastplate are said in the Exodus verse to carry the judgement (Hebrew: מִשְׁפָּט mišpāṭ) of God concerning the Israelites at all times.
