The Urim and the Thummin

Lev 8:8  And he put the breastplate upon him: also he put in the breastplate the Urim and the Thummim.

*Urim - Ocular brilliance (like the sunrise in the east)
*Thummim -Perfection. Notice the capitalization!

These beautiful ornaments set within the high priest's breast plate foretell of
Christ our High Priest. He is the Bright and Morning Star and the Perfection of Holiness, our sinless High Priest, tempted in all points like as we, yet without sin. He is one Who is touched with the feelings of our infirmities. The priest is one who acts toward God on behalf of man, as Christ does for us, sitting on the right hand of the Father making intercession for the believer.
