Exo 30:7

“burn.” This word occurs twice in the verse, and more literally it means “turn into smoke,” or even “turn into sweet smoke,” but it refers to burning. See commentary on Exodus 29:13.

“tends the lamps.” The “lamps” are the oil lamps that sit on top of the arms of the Menorah. The oil lamps had to be refilled with oil and the wicks needed to be trimmed.

Exo 30:8

“in the evening.” The Hebrew is literally, “between the two evenings.” The early evening started around 3 p.m. when the sun began to noticeably go down. This was the time of the evening sacrifice. The second evening is what Westerners would normally call evening, the sun was just setting until just after sunset when it was still light out.

“he must burn it.” More literally, “he must turn it [the golden incense altar] into smoke,” that is, he must burn the incense on it and so cover it with smoke, at which time the Holy Place would be filled with the wonderful smell of the incense. When it was time to trim and light the oil lamps for the evening, the priests were also to burn incense on the golden incense altar.
