Candlestick. In the tabernacle the golden "candlestick"—or lamp-stand—stood on the left hand as one entered the Holy Place, opposite the table of shewbread. It consisted of a pedestal; an upright shaft; six arms, three on one side, and three on the opposite side of the shaft; and seven lamps surmounting the shaft and arms. The arms were adorned with three kinds of carved ornaments, called cups, globes and blossoms. Its lamps were supplied with pure olive oil, and lighted every evening. Exodus 25:31-40; Exodus 30:7-8; Exodus 37:17-24; Leviticus 24:1-3; 1 Samuel 3:3; 2 Chronicles 13:11. In the first temple there were ten candelabra of pure gold, half of them standing on the north, and half on the south side, Within the Holy Place. 1 Kings 7:49-50; 2 Chronicles 4:7; Jeremiah 52:19. In the second temple there was but one, resembling that of the tabernacle. This was earned to Rome, on the destruction of Jerusalem, and copied on the triumphal arch of Titus, where its mutilated image is yet to be seen.
