39:8 He made the breastplate out of brocaded work, just like the ephod. [It was also] made from gold [thread], sky-blue, dark red and crimson wool, and twined linen.
Vaya'as et-hachoshen ma'aseh choshev kema'aseh efod zahav techelet ve'argaman vetola'at shani veshesh moshezar.
39:9 The breastplate was made to be a square when folded over. It was a span long, and when folded over, a span wide.
Ravua hayah kaful asu et-hachoshen zeret orko vezeret rochbo kaful.
39:10 [The breastplate] was set with four rows of precious stones:

The first row: carnelian, emerald, topaz.
Vayemale'u-vo arba'ah turey aven tur odem pitedah uvareket hatur ha'echad.

39:11 The second row: carbuncle, sapphire, beryl.
Vehatur hasheni nofech sapir veyahalom.
39:12 The third row: jacinth, agate, amethyst.
Vehatur hashlishi leshem shevo ve'achlamah.



Commentary:

when folded over
  A detail not mentioned in Exodus 28:16. It appears that it was folded over in the width and not in the length.
