Bread made without yeast. Instructions are given in the OT (Lev. 24: 5–9) for twelve loaves of unleavened bread to be placed in the Temple as an offering to the Lord. On the Sabbath the priests renewed them, consuming the old loaves. David, in an emergency, once ate this bread at Nob (1 Sam. 21: 4–6), an incident cited by Jesus to justify an infringement of the Sabbath law by his disciples (Matt. 12: 3–4).
