EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)The table.—The “table of shewbread” is thus commonly designated. (See Exodus 35:13; Exodus 37:10; Exodus 39:36; Exodus 40:22.)
And set in order the things . . . —The twelve loaves are the “things” specially intended (see Exodus 40:23). Whether the frankincense also is glanced at (Leviticus 24:7) may be doubted. It was perhaps an addition to the earliest ritual.
The candlestick.—See Exodus 25:31-37.
And light the lamps.—Not necessarily at once, but at the close of the day. (See Exodus 30:8.)Leviticus 24:5-9 are here presupposed, and must have been issued before this chapter was written.
the tabernacle—the entire edifice.
the tent—the covering that surmounted it (Ex 40:19).Exodus 25:29,30
and set in order the things that are to be set in order upon it; besides the dishes, spoons, covers, and bowls, there were the twelve loaves of shewbread to be set in two rows:

set in order, &c.] lit. arrange its arrangement, with reference to the two piles of loaves arranged upon it. Cf. v. 23 (lit. ‘arranged upon it the arrangement of bread’). Leviticus 24:6 ‘two rows’ (lit. arrangements). And so a later designation of the Presence-bread was ‘bread of arrangement’ (see on Exodus 25:30); cf. the ‘table of the arrangement,’ 2 Chronicles 29:18.
