The Lord spoke to Moses:
"Command the Israelites to bring you pure oil of beaten olives for the light, so that the lamp will burn regularly.
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.
He must regularly tend the lamps on the pure [gold] lampstand in the Lord's presence.
"Take fine flour and bake it into 12 loaves; each loaf is to be made with four quarts.
Arrange them in two rows, six to a row, on the pure [gold] table before the Lord.
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.
The bread is to be set out before the Lord every Sabbath day as a perpetual covenant obligation on the part of the Israelites.
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."
