    Barnes' Notes on Numbers 16:37

    Aaron as High Priest and as one of those that offered incense Numbers 16:17, could not be defiled by going among the dead.

Yet neither of them could fittingly be employed for common purposes. The censers therefore were beaten into plates for the altar; the coals were scattered at a distance.
