Censer

Additional Links

Censer. A small portable vessel of metal fitted to receive burning coals from the altar, and on which the incense for burning was sprinkled. 2 Chronicles 26:19; Luke 1:9. The only distinct precepts regarding the use of the censer are found in Leviticus 16:12, and in Numbers 4:14. Solomon prepared "censers of pure gold" as part of the Temple furniture. 1 Kings 7:50; 2 Chronicles 4:22. The word rendered "censer" in Hebrews 9:4 probably means the "Altar of Incense".
