In Exodus 28:17-211 There is a command for the high priest to wear a breastplate with stones according to the names of the sons of Yisrael, tewelve according to their names, like the engravings of a signet, each one with its own name, for the twelve tribes.
In Numbers 2 Yahweh commanded the tribes to camp around the Tent of Appointment either to the East, South, West or North.
The Hebrew word on this pendant is the Hebrew word goshen which means breastplate, in particular referring to the one worn by the high priest. This pendant was inspired by the combination of the above mentioned Scriptures. It refers to the breastplate worn by the high priest, but has not been set out as the original breastplate with four stones in three rows. The middle plate with the word "goshen" refers to the Tent of Appointment where the high priest served and wore the breastplate. The stones of the tribes have been replicated in colour as close as possible to represent each tribe which camped to the East, South, West and North of the Tent of Appointment.
