Leviticus 24

Leviticus 24:5-9

5. And thou shalt take fine flour, and bake twelve cakes thereof: two tenth-deals shall be in one cake.

5. Accipies similam, et coques ex ea duodecim placentas: duarum decimarum sit unaquseque placenta.

6. And thou shalt set them in two rows, six on a row, upon the pure table before the LORD.

6. Et pones eas in duobus ordinibus: seni ordines super mensam mundam coram Jehova.

7. And thou shalt put pure frankincense upon each row, that it may be on the bread for a memorial, even an offering made by fire unto the LORD.

7. Pones quoque super ordinem utrunque thus purum, eritque pani in memoriale et incensum Jehovae.

8. Every sabbath he shall set it in order before the LORD continually, being taken from the children of Israel by an everlasting covenant.

8. Per singula sabbatha ordinabit illos coram Jehova semper, a filiis Israel foedere sempiterno.

9. And it shall be Aaron’s and his sons’; and they shall eat it in the holy place: for it is most holy unto him of the offerings of the LORD made by fire by a perpetual statute.

9. Et erit Aharonis et filiorum ejus, qui comedent eum in loco sancto: quia sanctitatis sanctitatum est ei ex oblationibus ignitis Jehovae statuto perpetuo.
