And thou shalt set them in two rows
The twelve cakes: six on a row;
not by the side of each other, but six upon one another: upon the pure table;
the shewbread table, so called because overlaid with pure gold, and kept clean and bright, ( Exodus 25:24 ) ; before the Lord;
for this stood in the holy place, in the same place as the candlestick did, which has the same position, ( Leviticus 24:4 ) ; of the mystical and typical sense of these cakes, (See Gill on Exodus 25:30).
