24:6 Arrange [these loaves] in two stacks, six loaves to each stack. This shall be on the undefiled table which is before God.
Vesamta otam shtayim ma'arachot shesh hama'arachet al hashulchan hatahor lifney Adonay.
24:7 Place pure frankincense alongside these stacks. This will be the memorial portion [presented as] a fire offering to God.
Venatata al-hama'arechet levonah zakah vehayetah lalechem le'azkarah isheh l'Adonay.



Commentary:

on the undefiled table

alongside
  (Menachoth 97a; Yad, Temidim 5:2). Literally, 'on.'

memorial portion
