CENSER

In Leviticus 10:1, a vessel used for offering incense before the Lord. Nadab and Abihu used it improperly to bring God's destruction. It probably was also used for carrying live coals employed in connection with worship in the tabernacle or the Temple, each priest having one (compare Numbers 16:17-18). Use of the censer in Temple worship was restricted to members of the Aaronic priesthood, as King Uzziah discovered in shocking fashion (2 Chronicles 26:16-21). The heavenly worship also involved censers and incense, according to John's vision (Revelation 8:3-5). See Containers and Vessels; Tabernacle; Temple.
