What does Leviticus 24:5 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Leviticus 24:5

And thou shalt take fine flour
Of wheat, and the finest of it: and bake twelve cakes thereof;
answerable to the twelve tribes, as the Targum of Jonathan, which were typical of the spiritual Israel of God; two tenth deals shall be in one cake;
that is, two tenth parts of an ephah, which were two omers, one of which was as much as a man could eat in one day of the manna: so that one of these cakes was as much as two men could eat of bread in one day; each cake was ten hands' breadth long, five broad, and seven fingers its horns, or was so high F7.
