But Christ, the Messiah, was faithful over His [own Father's] house as a Son [and Master of it]. And it is we who are [now members of] this house, if we hold fast and firm to the end our joyful and exultant confidence and sense of triumph in our hope [in Christ].

The priest shall take one of the lambs and offer it for a guilt offering or trespass offering and the log of oil, and wave them for a wave offering before the Lord;
He shall kill the lamb in the place where they kill the sin offering and the burnt offering, in the sacred place [the court of the tabernacle]; for as the sin offering is the priest's, so is the guilt or trespass offering; it is most holy;

Now what do you have on hand? Give me five loaves of bread, or what you may have.
And the priest answered David, There is no common bread on hand, but there is hallowed bread; if the young men have kept themselves at least from women.
And David told the priest, Truly women have been kept from us about these three days, since I came out, and the food bags and utensils of the young men are clean, and although the bread will be used in a secular way, it will be set apart in the clean bags.
So the priest gave him holy bread; for there was no bread there but the showbread, which was taken from before the Lord, to put hot bread in its place the day when it was taken away.
