“Take the finest flour and bake twelve loaves of bread,(A) using two-tenths of an ephah[a](B) for each loaf. Arrange them in two stacks, six in each stack, on the table of pure gold(C) before the Lord. By each stack put some pure incense(D) as a memorial[b] portion(E) to represent the bread and to be a food offering presented to the Lord. This bread is to be set out before the Lord regularly,(F) Sabbath after Sabbath,(G) on behalf of the Israelites, as a lasting covenant. It belongs to Aaron and his sons,(H) who are to eat it in the sanctuary area,(I) because it is a most holy(J) part of their perpetual share of the food offerings presented to the Lord.”
