    Barnes' Notes on Exodus 25:38

    The tongs - Used to trim and adjust the wicks. (Compare Isaiah 6:6.)

    The snuff-dishes - These were shallow vessels used to receive the burnt fragments of wick removed by the tongs. The same Hebrew word is translated, in accordance with its connection, "fire pans," Exodus 27:3; Exodus 38:3; and "censers," Numbers 4:14; Numbers 16:6.
