13火必须不断在祭坛上烧着,不可熄灭。
13The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; it shall never go out.
13 Verse 13. The fire shall ever be burning] See on Le 6:9 and

Le 6:20. In imitation of this perpetual fire, the ancient

Persian Magi, and their descendants the Parsees, kept up a

perpetual fire; the latter continue it to the present day. This

is strictly enjoined in the Zend Avesta, which is a code of laws

as sacred among them as the Pentateuch is among the Jews. A

Sagnika Brahmin preserves the fire that was kindled at his

investiture with the poita, and never suffers it to go out, using

the same fire at his wedding and in all his burnt-offerings, till

at length his body is burnt with it.-WARD's Customs.
