29 - THE PERPETUAL FIRE ON THE ALTAR


Leviticus 6:13 --A fire shall always be burning on the altar; it shall never go out.”

“Three wood-stacks were kindled every day on the Outer Altar: the Great Fire on the east side of the Altar; the one at the south-western part of the Altar, from which fire was taken to the Golden Altar for the burning of the incense; and the fire which was kept burning continually on the Altar, from which ready burning logs were taken to re-kindle the Great Fire whenever necessary.”*

* Mishneh Torah, Abodah, Hilchoth Temidin U-Musafin VIII, 9

According to an ancient tradition in the Mishnah, one of the ten wonders that were wrought in the sanctuary was that rain never quenched the great fire of the woodpile on the Altar.*

* Ab. V, 5
