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."
