Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 1:9

_ _ his lot was to burn incense — The part assigned to each priest in his week of service was decided by lot. Three were employed at the offering of incense — to remove the ashes of the former service; to bring in and place on the golden altar the pan filled with hot burning coals taken from the altar of burnt offering; and to sprinkle the incense on the hot coals; and, while the smoke of it ascended, to make intercession for the people. This was the most distinguished part of the service (Revelation 8:3), and this was what fell to the lot of Zacharias at this time [Lightfoot].

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Luke 1:9

According to the custom of the priest's office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the (n) temple of the Lord.

(n) The temple was one, and the court another, for Zacharias went out of the court (or outward room) where all the people were (and therefore they are said to be without) and into the temple.
