Exodus 25:29-30

Context
25:29 You are to make its plates, 1  its ladles, 2  its pitchers, and its bowls, to be used in pouring out offerings; 3  you are to make them of pure gold. 25:30 You are to set the Bread of the Presence 4  on the table before me continually.

1 tn Or “a deep gold dish.” The four nouns in this list are items associated with the table and its use.

2 tn Or “cups” (NAB, TEV).

3 tn The expression “for pouring out offerings” represents Hebrew אֲשֶׁר יֻסַּךְ בָּהֵן (’asher yussakh bahen). This literally says, “which it may be poured out with them,” or “with which [libations] may be poured out.”

4 sn The name basically means that the bread is to be set out in the presence of Yahweh. The custom of presenting bread on a table as a thank offering is common in other cultures as well. The bread here would be placed on the table as a symbol of the divine provision for the twelve tribes – continually, because they were to express their thanksgiving continually. Priests could eat the bread after certain times. Fresh bread would be put there regularly.
