Shewbread. Exodus 25:30. Unleavened bread offered every Sabbath on the golden table in the holy place, made into twelve cakes, according to the twelve tribes of Israel, and placed in two piles or rows. The old cakes remained till replaced by the new and hence the name "continual bread." Numbers 4:7; Leviticus 24:8. As a general rule the old could be eaten by the priests alone, and by them only in the court of the sanctuary. 1 Samuel 21:1-6; Matthew 12:3.
