Tabernacle Oil and Bread

1 The Lord spoke to Moses:
2 "Command the Israelites to bring you pure oil of beaten olives for the light, so that the lamp will burn regularly.a
3 Aaron is to tend it regularly from evening until morning before the Lord outside the veil of the testimonyb in the tent of meeting. This is a permanent statute throughout your generations.
4 He must regularly tend the lamps on the pure [gold] lampstand in the Lord's presence.c
5 "Take fine flour and bake it into 12 loaves; each loaf is to be made with four quarts.d
6 Arrange them in two rows, six to a row, on the pure [gold] table before the Lord.e
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.
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.
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."
