3 He said to them: Have you not read what David did
when he and the men with him got hungry?
4 How he entered into the house of God and they ate the loaves of presentation, something that it was not lawful for him to eat, nor for those with him, but for the priests only?
5 Or, have you not read in the Law that on the Sabbaths the priests in the temple treat the Sabbath as not sacred and continue guiltless?
6 But I tell you that something greater than the temple is here
7 However, if you had understood what this means, 'I want mercy, and not sacrifice,' you would not have condemned the guiltless ones. (Matthew 12 NWT)
31 And Mattithiah of the Levites, who was the firstborn
of Shallum the Korahite, was in the office of trust over the things baked in
32 And some of the sons of the Kohathites, their brothers, were in charge of the layer bread, to prepare it Sabbath by Sabbath. (1 Chronicles 9 NWT)
30 And you must put the showbread upon the table before
31 And you must make a lampstand of pure gold. Of hammered work the lampstand is to be made. Its base, its branches, its cups, its knobs and its blossoms are to proceed out from it. (Exodus 25 NWT)
1 Later David came into Nob to Ahimelech the priest;
and Ahimelech began to tremble at meeting David and then said to him: Why is it
you are by yourself, and no one is with you?
2 At this David said to Ahimelech the priest: The king himself commanded me as to a matter, and he went on to say to me, 'Let no one know anything at all of the matter concerning which I am sending you and concerning which I have commanded you.' And I have made an appointment with the young men for such and such a place.
3 And in a time/now, what is there under your hand? Give five [loaves of] bread into my hand, or the [bread/number] found. (1 Samuel 21 GLT)
4 But the priest answered David and said: There is no ordinary bread under my hand, but there is holy bread; provided that the young men have at least kept themselves from womankind.
5 So David answered the priest and said to him: But womankind has been kept away from us the same as formerly when I went out, and the organisms of the young men continue holy, although the mission itself is ordinary. And how much more so today, when one becomes holy in [his] organism?
6 At that the priest gave him what was holy, because there happened to be no bread there but the showbread that had been removed from before Jehovah so as to place fresh bread there on the day of its being taken away. (1 Samuel 21 NWT)
So this layer bread, this showbread, appears to be the food that is taught
each Sabbath in the true church. Just as the lampstand is the light shone by the
various angels/presidencies of the true church. It is meant for the priests, the
water baptised congregation. Under Abimelech's hand are 5 months of food for
seized 1NC reserves from 2018Iyyar10 to 2018Tishri10. Then 5 showbread loaves into
David's hand would be a witness to 25 Sabbaths. Not sure how to handle or the
