Leviticus 24:5-8 English Standard Version (ESV)

Bread for the Tabernacle

“You shall take fine flour and bake twelve loaves from it; two tenths of an ephah[a] shall be in each loaf. And you shall set them in two piles, six in a pile, on the table of pure gold[b] before the Lord. And you shall put pure frankincense on each pile, that it may go with the bread as a memorial portion as a food offering to the Lord. Every Sabbath day Aaron shall arrange it before the Lord regularly; it is from the people of Israel as a covenant forever.
