1 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying:
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.
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.
4 He shall set up the lamps on the lampstand of pure gold before the Lord regularly.
5 You shall take choice flour, and bake twelve loaves of it; two-tenths of an ephah shall be in each loaf.
6 You shall place them in two rows, six in a row, on the table of pure gold.
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.
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.
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.
