1 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 1 The LORD said to Moses,
2 Command the people of Israel to bring you pure oil of beaten olives for the lamp, that a light may be kept burning 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 shall set it up in the tent of meeting, outside the curtain of the covenant, to burn from evening to morning before the Lord regularly; it shall be a statute forever 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 shall set up the lamps on the lampstand of pure gold before the Lord regularly. 4 The lamps on the pure gold lampstand before the LORD must be tended continually.
5 You shall take choice flour, and bake twelve loaves of it; two-tenths of an ephah shall be in each loaf. 5 "Take fine flour and bake twelve loaves of bread, using two-tenths of an ephah for each loaf.
6 You shall place them in two rows, six in a row, on the table of pure gold. 6 Set them in two rows, six in each row, on the table of pure gold before the LORD.
7 You shall put pure frankincense with each row, to be a token offering for the bread, as an offering by fire 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 Every sabbath day Aaron shall set them in order before the Lord regularly as a commitment of the people of Israel, as a covenant forever. 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 They shall be for Aaron and his descendants, who shall eat them in a holy place, for they are most holy portions for him from the offerings by fire to the Lord, a perpetual due. 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."
