The mysterious Urim and Thummim, set in the twelve-jeweled breastplate of the high priest (Leviticus 8:8), evidently had something to do with recognizing God's will for the twelve tribes in their wanderings and conflicts (Numbers 27:21; Deuteronomy 33:8; 1 Samuel 28:6; Ezra 2:63; Nehemiah 7:65). Exactly what they were and how they functioned has been the object of much speculation; if their meaning was something like "lights and perfections," as most scholars believe, they in some way must have been a medium of special divine guidance during this strategic period in God's plan for His people Israel.
