Sacrificial Instruments in the Israelitish Sanctuary.

Resource Toolbox

For the use of the priests in offering sacrifices, especially those with blood, there were kept in the tabernacle (Exodus 27:3; Exodus 38:3; Numbers 4:14) and in the Temple (1 Kings 7:40; 1 Kings 7:45; 2 Kings 25:14 sq.; Jeremiah 52:18 sq.) the following implements of brass:

1. יָעַי ם, yaim', shovels, perhaps to free the altar of burned offering from its ashes; to which the סַירוֹת, siroth', or pots, belonged, into which they were thrown.

2. מַזְרָקוֹת, mizrakoth', basins, to take up the blood of the victims for sprinkling.

3. מַזְלָגוֹת, mizlagoth', forks, flesh-forks.

4. מִחְתּוֹת, machtoth', firepans, in which coals were taken up.

The brazen מְזִמְּרוֹת, mezammeroth' (Jeremiah 52:18), may be considered as belonging here, and will then doubtless mean sacrificial knives, elsewhere called מִחְלָפַי, machlaphim'. (See KNIFE). The golden vases or vessels mentioned in 1 Kings 7:50 are certainly different from those just mentioned (No. 2), and were intended for use in the holy place. (See SACRIFICE); (See TEMPLE).
