A sacred loaf made probably of barley or wheat which was set before the Lord as a continual sacrifice (Exodus 25:30 ). The old bread was then eaten by the priests (Leviticus 24:5-9 ). David requested the bread for his hungry men as they fled from King Saul (1 Samuel 21:4-6 ). Jesus used this account to illustrate His teaching on the Sabbath, that the day was made to benefit people (Mark 2:23-28 ). See Bread of the Presence .
