Firepan. One of the vessels of the Temple service. Exodus 27:3; Exodus 38:3; 2 Kings 25:15; Jeremiah 52:19. The same word is elsewhere rendered "snuff-dish," Exodus 25:38; Exodus 37:23; Numbers 4:9, and "censer." Leviticus 10:1; Leviticus 16:12; Numbers 16:6; ff.

There appear, therefore, to have been two articles so called: one, like a chafing-dish, to carry live coals for the purpose of burning incense; another, like a snuffer-dish, to be used in trimming the lamps, in order to carry the snuffers and convey away the snuff.
