Shewbread


"Ex. 25:30 (R.V. marg., "presence bread"); 1 Chr. 9:32 (marg.," "bread of ordering); Num. 4:7: called "hallowed bread" (R.V.," holy bread) in 1 Sam. 21:1-6. "This bread consisted of twelve loaves made of the finest flour. "They were flat and thin, and were placed in two rows of six each" on a table in the holy place before the Lord. They were renewed "every Sabbath (Lev. 24:5-9), and those that were removed to give" place to the new ones were to be eaten by the priests only in "the holy place (see 1 Sam. 21:3-6; comp. Matt. 12:3, 4)." "The number of the loaves represented the twelve tribes of "Israel, and also the entire spiritual Israel, "the true Israel;" and the placing of them on the table symbolized the entire "consecration of Israel to the Lord, and their acceptance of God" "as their God. The table for the bread was made of acacia wood, 3" "feet long, 18 inches broad, and 2 feet 3 inches high. It was" "plated with pure gold. Two staves, plated with gold, passed" "through golden rings, were used for carrying it."
