Between the altar and the tabernacle, a little to the south, stood a circular laver, which, together with its base, was made of the brazen ornaments which the women had presented for the use of the tabernacle, and was thence called כיור נחשת , Exodus 30:18; Exodus 40:7 . The priests, when about to perform their duties, washed their hands in this laver.
