hallowed bread

1 Samuel 21:6

21:6 hallowed bread. The showbread was intended only for the use of Aaron and his sons as they ministered in the holy place (Leviticus 24:5-9). However, the Lord Jesus Himself apparently approved of the use of this bread by David and his men under this circumstance (Matthew 12:3,4). This does not mean, of course, that God approved of David’s lies to Ahimelech or to Achish (I Samuel 21:2,13), although God apparently allowed these actions because of the urgency of the situation and His ultimate plans for Saul and for David.
