Chapter 6: 12,13

6:12-13: "The altar shall be kept burning on it. It shall not go out, but the priest shall burn wood on it every morning; and he shall lay out the burnt offering on it, and offer up in smoke the fat portions of the peace offerings on it. Fire shall be kept burning continually on the altar; it is not to go out." Leviticus 6:12-13

It details the duties of the priests and the rituals and ceremonies associated with the sacrifices. This passage focues on the command to the priests to maintain the fire of the altar continuously. God himself lit the fireThey were ordered to make sure that it never burned out. The priests took that responsibility seriously. The organized themselves to maintainthe fire 24 hours a day seven days a week.
