“Now, order the Israelites to bring you pure, clear olive oil for light so that the lamps can be kept burning. In the Tent of Meeting, the area outside the curtain that veils The Testimony, Aaron and his sons will keep this light burning from evening until morning before God. This is to be a permanent practice down through the generations for Israelites.”
And thou shalt command the Bnei Yisroel, that they bring thee pure pressed [ T.N. not pounded, that the oil would be pure] shemen zayit (olive oil) for the ohr, to kindle the Ner Tamid (Perpetual Lamp).
Command thou also to the sons of Israel, that they bring to thee the cleanest oil of olive trees, and pounded with a pestle, that a lantern burn ever[more] (And command to the Israelites, that they bring thee the purest olive oil, yea, pounded with a pestle, so that the lantern shall burn forevermore)
