Oil and Bread Set Before the LORD

24:1-3pp -- Ex 27:20-21

1 The LORD said to Moses, 2 "Command the Israelites to bring you clear oil of pressed olives for the light so that the lamps may be kept burning continually. 3 Outside the curtain of the Testimony in the Tent of Meeting, Aaron is to tend the lamps before the LORD from evening till morning, continually. This is to be a lasting ordinance1 for the generations to come. 4 The lamps on the pure gold lampstand2 before the LORD must be tended continually. 5 "Take fine flour and bake twelve loaves of bread,3 using two-tenths of an ephaha4 for each loaf. 6 Set them in two rows, six in each row, on the table of pure gold5 before the LORD. 7 Along each row put some pure incense6 as a memorial portion7 to represent the bread and to be an offering made to the LORD by fire. 8 This bread is to be set out before the LORD regularly,8 Sabbath after Sabbath,9 on behalf of the Israelites, as a lasting covenant. 9 It belongs to Aaron and his sons,10 who are to eat it in a holy place,11 because it is a most holy12 part of their regular share of the offerings made to the LORD by fire."
