Numbers 8:3

Numbers 8:3

And Aaron did so, he lighted the lamps thereof over against
the candlestick
As God had taken up his residence in the most holy place, as appears by the voice speaking from off the mercy seat, ( Numbers 7:89 ) ; and sacrifices were begun to be offered in the outward court on the altar of burnt offering, it was proper that the service of God in the holy place should also be set on foot; as placing of the shewbread on the shewbread table, and burning incense on the golden altar of incense; which could not well be done until the lamps were lighted, and therefore orders were given for the lighting them, which was accordingly done by Aaron:

as the Lord commanded Moses;
( Exodus 25:37 ) .
