1 The Lord spoke to Moses: 1 The LORD said to Moses,
2 "Command the Israelites to bring you pure oil of beaten olives for the light, so that the lamp will burn regularly. 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 Aaron is to tend it regularly from evening until morning before the Lord outside the veil of the testimony in the tent of meeting. This is a permanent statute throughout your generations. 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 ordinance for the generations to come.
4 He must regularly tend the lamps on the pure [gold] lampstand in the Lord's presence. 4 The lamps on the pure gold lampstand before the LORD must be tended continually.
5 "Take fine flour and bake it into 12 loaves; each loaf is to be made with four quarts. 5 "Take fine flour and bake twelve loaves of bread, using two-tenths of an ephah for each loaf.
6 Arrange them in two rows, six to a row, on the pure [gold] table before the Lord. 6 Set them in two rows, six in each row, on the table of pure gold before the LORD.
7 Place pure frankincense near each row, so that it may serve as a memorial portion for the bread and a fire offering to the Lord. 7 Along each row put some pure incense as a memorial portion to represent the bread and to be an offering made to the LORD by fire.
8 The bread is to be set out before the Lord every Sabbath day as a perpetual covenant obligation on the part of the Israelites. 8 This bread is to be set out before the LORD regularly, Sabbath after Sabbath, on behalf of the Israelites, as a lasting covenant.
9 It belongs to Aaron and his sons, who are to eat it in a holy place, for it is the holiest portion for him from the fire offerings to the Lord; this is a permanent rule." 9 It belongs to Aaron and his sons, who are to eat it in a holy place, because it is a most holy part of their regular share of the offerings made to the LORD by fire."
