The Bible does not distinctly tell us what the Urim and Thummim were. That they were not the twelve precious stones contained in the breast-plate, as some have erroneously imagined, is quite clear.
We do not find that God directed Moses to make the Urim and Thummim, as He did when He said: And thou shalt make the breast-plate of judgment with cunning work, &c. - Exodus xxviii., r 5.
It is very plain from the text itself, that the Urim and Thummim were something in addition to the breast-plate, and put therein after it was finished, by Moses himself, and therefore God says And thou shalt put into the breast-plate of judgment the Urim and Thummim.
From this fact it is evident that there was something additional placed in the breast-plate by Moses, and for this reason, it is supposed that it was made double, that it might the more conveniently hold them.
