how he went into the house of God and ate the Bread of the Presence, which was not lawful for him to eat, nor for those who were with him, but only for the priests? Bible

“ate.” The “ate” is plural. David and the men with him all ate the Bread of the Presence. A more literal, but more difficult rendering in English would be, “he [David] went into the house of God and they ate the Bread of the Presence.” This is a case where a literal translation from the Greek makes the English difficult.
