Hebrew - needlework

Decorative work sewn upon cloth. Needlework was used in the decoration of the screens for the tabernacle door (Exodus 26:36; Exodus 36:37) and for the gate to its court (Exodus 27:16; Exodus 38:18) as well as for Aaron's girdle (Exodus 28:39; Exodus 39:29). Needlework was included in the prize spoils of war (Judges 5:30) and in lists of luxury items for trade (Ezekiel 27:16,Ezekiel 27:24). Embroidered garments were the clothing of royalty (Ezekiel 16:10,Ezekiel 16:13,Ezekiel 16:18; Ezekiel 26:16). The mention of material of various colors suggests that some needlework may have involved applique.
