Regulations for the Lampstand and Table of Bread
24:1 The Lord spoke to Moses: 24:2 “Command the Israelites to bring1 to you pure oil of beaten olives for the light, to make a lamp burn continually.2 24:3 Outside the veil-canopy3 of the congregation in the Meeting Tent Aaron4 must arrange it from evening until morning before the Lord continually. This is a perpetual statute throughout your generations.5 24:4 On the ceremonially pure lampstand6 he must arrange the lamps before the Lord continually.
24:5 “You must take choice wheat flour7 and bake twelve loaves;8 there must be two tenths of an ephah of flour in9 each loaf, 24:6 and you must set them in two rows, six in a row,10 on the ceremonially pure table before the Lord. 24:7 You must put pure frankincense11 on each row,12 and it will become a memorial portion13 for the bread, a gift14 to the Lord. 24:8 Each Sabbath day15 Aaron16 must arrange it before the Lord continually; this portion17 is from the Israelites as a perpetual covenant. 24:9 It will belong to Aaron and his sons, and they must eat it in a holy place because it is most holy to him, a perpetual allotted portion18 from the gifts of the Lord.”
