1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Candlestick
A symbol of the Holy Eucharist; often depicted with a Host above it. Rubrical law prescribes that six great candlesticks be permanently stationed on the main altar, three on either side of the central crucifix. This custom dates from the 16th century, though there is evidenee of candlesticks, in use as early as the 5th century. An altar candlestick consists of five parts, the foot, stem, knob about the middle of the stem, bowl to receive the drippings of wax, and the pricket, i.e.,the sharp point that terminates the stem on which the candle is fixed.
1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Candlestick, Apocalyptic
Saint John is shown (Apocalypse 1) seven golden candlesticks, and in the midst of them one like to the Son of man, holding in His right hand seven stars. The candlesticks are the seven churches of Asia; the stars, the angels of those churches.
1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Candlestick, Altar
Six candlesticks with candles, three on each side of the crucifix, kept on the main altar. Two, one at each side of the altar, must be used during low Mass. Extra candlesticks and candelabra are used for ornamentation. Altar-candlesticks may be of any kind of metal, or gilded or silvered wood. Their use became general only in Hebrews 16th century.
1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Candlestick, Seven-Branched
This conspicuous article of furniture of the Holy Place (Exodus 25:37), from its purpose and make-up would be better styled a lampstand. It was made of one talent (c.108 pounds) of pure gold (hence the expression, "the most pure candlestick," of Exodus 31, etc.) and was of beaten, or repolse, work. It consisted of a central shaft, from which three pairs of arms branched off, curving outwards and upwards so that all their extremities and that of the shaft were on a level. Both the shaft and the branches bore ornaments (cups, bowls, and lilies) in the shape of almond-tree blossoms; on the top of each branch rested a lamp of gold, probably of the ordinary pattern used in ancient times. The golden candlestick was placed along the south wall of the Holy Place, facing the table of the loaves of proposition, the nozzles of the lamps being turned towards the north. Only the best kind of olive-oil (the so-called virgin oil, "beaten with a pestle," Exodus 27) was to be used in these lamps, which, trimmed every morning and refilled every evening, were to burn continually (Exodus 27; Leviticus 24). The Bible does not say what became of the original seven-branched candlestick. In its place in Solomon's Temple there were ten lampstands (3King 3:7), which were taken away by the Babylonian army, 586 B.C. A new lampstand, perhaps of the old pattern, existed in the second temple and was carried off by Antiochus Epiphanes (1Machabees 1). Judas Machabeus provided a new one (1Machabees 4), somewhat different in shape from the one described in Exodus. There is no reason to doubt that this was the one taken away by the Romans after the destruction of the Temple, A.D. 70, and represented on the Arch of Titus, in Rome.
Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Candlestick
Lampstand: menowrah . Exclusively that of the tabernacle made of a. talent of pure gold, symbolizing preciousness and sacredness and incorruptibility (Exodus 25:31-39); of beaten work, 5 feet high and 3 1/2 between the outside branches, according to the rabbis. An upright central stem, with three branches on one side and three on the other, still to be seen represented on the arch of Titus at Rome, erected after his triumph over Jerusalem. On the central shaft were four almond shaped bowls, four round knops, and four flowers, i.e. 12 in all; on each of the six branches three bowls, three knops, and three flowers, i.e. 54 on the six, and adding the 12 of the shaft, 66 in all. Josephus counts 70, a mystical number, as was the seven, the number of branches, implying divine perfection. Aaron lit it each evening; in the morning it was allowed to go out, as 1 Samuel 3:3 proves; compare also 2 Chronicles 13:11; Leviticus 24:2-3, "from the evening unto the morning before the Lord continually."
It stood in the tabernacle "without the veil" that shut in the holiest. It illumined the table of shewbread obliquely (Josephus, Ant. 3:6, section 7). "To burn always" is explained by "from evening to morning" (Exodus 27:20-21; Exodus 30:8). Aaron or his successor was "always" at the appointed time to light the lamp every evening, and dress it every morning with the golden snuffers, removing the snuff in golden dishes. The artificial light had to give place each morning to the light of the sun which rendered it needless, as the light of Old Testament ordinances gives place to the Sun of righteousness (Malachi 4:2). Under the New Testament of the True Light, Christ Jesus, the seven separate candlesticks represent the churches or the church in its entirety (Revelation 1:12-13; Revelation 1:20); no longer as the one Jewish church (represented by the one sevenfold candlestick), restricted to one outward unity and locality.
The several churches are mutually independent as to external ceremonies and government (provided all things are done to edification, and needless schisms are avoided), yet one in the unity of the Spirit and headship of Christ. The Gentile churches will not realize their unity until the Jewish church as the stem, unites all the lamps in one candlestick (Romans 11:16-24). Zechariah's candlestick (Zechariah 4) is prophetical of that final church which shall join in one all the earth under Messiah the King, reigning in Jerusalem as the spiritual center and rallying point of all (compare Zephaniah 3:9; Zechariah 14:9; Zechariah 14:16-17; Jeremiah 3:17). The candlestick is not the light, but bears it for the enlightening of all (Matthew 5:16). The light is the Lord's (Philippians 2:15-16). The candlestick stands in the outer sanctuary, the type of the present dispensation on earth; but not in the inner holiest place, the type of the heavenly world wherein the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are both the temple and the light (Revelation 21:22-23).
In Revelation 2:5 "remove thy candlestick" threatens not extinction of the candle, but removal of the seat of the light elsewhere. In Revelation 11:4 "the two candlesticks" are connected with "the two witnesses," which Wordsworth identifies with the two Testaments; so they would represent the Old Testament and the New Testament churches. The olive oil represents the grace of the Holy Spirit flowing in God's appointed channels. In Solomon's temple there were ten golden candlesticks (1 Kings 7:49; 2 Chronicles 4:7). These were taken to Babylon (Jeremiah 52:19). In the second temple, namely, Zerubbabel's, a single candlestick was again placed (Zechariah 4:2-6; Zechariah 4:11), taken by Titus from the temple as restored by Herod, and carried in his triumph at Rome and deposited in the Temple of Peace. Genseric 400 years later transferred it to Carthage.
Belisarius recovered it, and carried it to Constantinople, and then deposited it in the church of Jerusalem, A.D. 533. It has never since been heard of. In John 8:12, "I am the light of the world," there is allusion to the two colossal golden candlesticks lighted at the feast of tabernacles (which was then being held: John 7:2-37) after the evening sacrifice in one of the temple courts, and casting their beams on mount Olivet and on Jerusalem. Jesus coming to the temple at daybreak (John 8:1-2), as they were extinguishing the artificial lights in the face of the superior light of the rising sun, virtually says, "Your typical light is passing away, I am the Sun of righteousness, the True Light." (John 1:9).

Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types - Candlestick
Exodus 25:31 (c) This is a type of the Holy Spirit illuminating all the things of GOD.
the pure gold represents the purity of the Spirit and of His Word.
the seven branches or stems represent the fullness and completeness of the revelation of the Spirit.
the bowls represent the great provision of the Spirit. - the flowers represent the beauty of the Spirit.
Some Bible expositors feel that the candlestick also represents GOD's people, and certainly it does in the book of Revelation.
Revelation 1:20 (a) Here we certainly find a type of the church as she gives light on the Scriptures and reveals CHRIST by her ministries. The Lord JESUS Himself said that the "seven candlesticks are the seven churches." These candlesticks reveal that the seven lessons given through the seven churches present full and complete light on what the Spirit says to us about GOD's will. Each church is to present an unsullied, pure light from Heaven to a dark and sinful world.
Revelation 2:5 (a) This is clearly a type of the testimony of an individual or of a church wherein the person and work of CHRIST no longer are properly presented to the public.
Revelation 11:4 (a) These are two mysterious men sent from GOD with great power to make known His judgment on the earth sometime in the future days. They will give the light of GOD to the enemies of GOD. They bear GOD's testimony in a hostile land. Some think these are Moses and Elijah. The context clearly indicates that these candlesticks are types of real men.
Morrish Bible Dictionary - Candlestick
This, in scripture, signifies a lamp-stand, as is plainly implied in 2 Chronicles 4:20 : 'the candlesticks with their lamps,' used in the temple. A 'candlestick' is also mentioned in Belshazzar's palace, near which the fingers of a man's hand wrote upon the wall. Daniel 5:5 . Except in large buildings, hand lamps were all that were needed.
THE GOLDEN CANDLESTICK in the Tabernacle and Temple with its seven lamps is minutely described in Exodus 25:31-40 : it is also called the 'pure candlestick.' It was situate in the holy place, and gave light over againstthe table of showbread. It might be thought from Exodus 27:20 thatthe lamps were to be kept alight always, but this does not appear to be the sense of 'burn always.' It should rather be read 'burn continuously,' that is, every evening, for in the next verse it adds 'from evening to morning;' and in Exodus 30:8 it distinctly says "when Aaron lighteth the lamps at even. " In the morning they were allowed to go out. 1 Samuel 3:3 : cf. also 2 Chronicles 13:11 . The candlestick was entirely of gold, signifying that which was divine in its nature, and was typical of Christ the true light, but to be reproduced in His people. Ephesians 5:8 . The number of the lamps (seven) is also indicative of divine perfection.
The Candlestick that was in the temple in the time of the Lord was carried away at the siege of Jerusalem, and is portrayed on the triumphal 'Arch of Titus' at Rome, but as fabulous animals are depicted on its base it is very questionable whether it is a true representation.
Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Candlestick
CANDLESTICK.—In Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885 of the Gospels this word is without exception correctly changed into ‘stand,’ ΛΥχΝίΑ being the stand which held the little oil-fed lamp. It might mean anything from a luxurious candelabrum, generally of wood covered with metal, to a bit of stonework projecting from a cottage wall. It was to the lampstand in lowly domestic use (cf. 2 Kings 4:10) that Christ referred in Mark 4:21 as being necessary to complete the value of the lamp for those in the house (Matthew 5:16) and those who enter it (Luke 8:16; Luke 11:33). And the lesson is that if we have received a truth or a joy through Christ, who is the Light of the World, it is common sense and common justice not to hide it in fear or selfishness, but to use it as a means of illustrating our Father God and illumining those around us (Matthew 5:16). Practical illustrations of this parable are found in Mark 5:19-20, Matthew 10:27; Matthew 10:32, Luke 10:21; Luke 17:18 (cf. Luke 15:6; Luke 15:9; Luke 15:32).

Easton's Bible Dictionary - Candlestick
The lamp-stand, "candelabrum," which Moses was commanded to make for the tabernacle, according to the pattern shown him. Its form is described in Exodus 25:31-40 ; 37:17-24 , and may be seen represented on the Arch of Titus at Rome. It was among the spoils taken by the Romans from the temple of Jerusalem (A.D. 70). It was made of fine gold, and with the utensils belonging to it was a talent in weight. The tabernacle was a tent without windows, and thus artificial light was needed. This was supplied by the candlestick, which, however, served also as a symbol of the church or people of God, who are "the light of the world." The light which "symbolizes the knowledge of God is not the sun or any natural light, but an artificial light supplied with a specially prepared oil; for the knowledge of God is in truth not natural nor common to all men, but furnished over and above nature."
This candlestick was placed on the south side of the Holy Place, opposite the table of shewbread (Exodus 27:21 ; 30:7,8 ; Leviticus 24:3 ; 1 Samuel 3:3 ). It was lighted every evening, and was extinguished in the morning. In the morning the priests trimmed the seven lamps, borne by the seven branches, with golden snuffers, carrying away the ashes in golden dishes (Exodus 25:38 ), and supplying the lamps at the same time with fresh oil. What ultimately became of the candlestick is unknown.
In Solomon's temple there were ten separate candlesticks of pure gold, five on the right and five on the left of the Holy Place (1 Kings 7:49 ; 2 Chronicles 4:7 ). Their structure is not mentioned. They were carried away to Babylon (Jeremiah 52:19 ).
In the temple erected after the Exile there was again but one candlestick, and like the first, with seven branches. It was this which was afterwards carried away by Titus to Rome, where it was deposited in the Temple of Peace. When Genseric plundered Rome, he is said to have carried it to Carthage (A.D. 455). It was recaptured by Belisarius (A.D. 533), and carried to Constantinople and thence to Jerusalem, where it finally disappeared.

People's Dictionary of the Bible - Candlestick
Candlestick. In the tabernacle the golden "candlestick"—or lamp-stand—stood on the left hand as one entered the Holy Place, opposite the table of shewbread. It consisted of a pedestal; an upright shaft; six arms, three on one side, and three on the opposite side of the shaft; and seven lamps surmounting the shaft and arms. The arms were adorned with three kinds of carved ornaments, called cups, globes and blossoms. Its lamps were supplied with pure olive oil, and lighted every evening. Exodus 25:31-40; Exodus 30:7-8; Exodus 37:17-24; Leviticus 24:1-3; 1 Samuel 3:3; 2 Chronicles 13:11. In the first temple there were ten candelabra of pure gold, half of them standing on the north, and half on the south side, Within the Holy Place. 1 Kings 7:49-50; 2 Chronicles 4:7; Jeremiah 52:19. In the second temple there was but one, resembling that of the tabernacle. This was earned to Rome, on the destruction of Jerusalem, and copied on the triumphal arch of Titus, where its mutilated image is yet to be seen.
Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Candlestick
The instrument so rendered by our translators was more properly a stand for lamps. One of beaten gold was made by Moses, Exodus 25:31-32 , and put into the tabernacle in the holy place, over against the table of shew bread. The basis of this candlestick was also of pure gold; it had seven branches, three on each side, and one in the middle. When Solomon had built the temple, he was not satisfied with placing one golden candlestick there, but had ten put up, of the same form and metal with that described by Moses, five on the north, and five on the south side of the holy place, 1 Kings 7:49 . After the Jews returned from their captivity, the golden candlestick was again placed in the temple, as it had been before in the tabernacle by Moses. The lamps were kept burning perpetually; and were supplied morning and evening with pure olive oil. Josephus says, that after the Romans had destroyed the temple, the several things which were found within it, were carried in triumph to Rome, namely, the golden table, and the golden candlestick with seven branches. These were lodged in the temple built by Vespasian, and consecrated to Peace; and at the foot of Mount Palatine, there is a triumphal arch still visible, upon which Vespasian's triumph is represented, and the several monuments which were carried publicly in the procession are engraved, and among the rest the candlestick with the seven branches, which are still discernible upon it. In Revelation 1:12 ; Revelation 1:20 , mention is made of seven golden candlesticks, which are said to be emblems of the seven Christian churches.
Smith's Bible Dictionary - Candlestick,
which Moses was commanded to make for the tabernacle, is described (Exodus 25:31-37 ; 37:17-24 ) It was not strictly a "candlestick," as it held seven richly-adorned lamps. With its various appurtenances it required a talent of "pure gold;" and it was not moulded, but "of beaten work," and has been estimated to have been worth in our money over ,000. From the Arch of Titus, where the sculptured the spoils taken from Jerusalem, we learn that it consisted of a central stem, with six branches, three on each side. It was about five feet high. [1] The candlestick was placed on the south side of the first apartment of the tabernacle, opposite the table of shewbread, (Exodus 25:37 ) and was lighted every evening and dressed every morning. (Exodus 27:20,21 ; 30:8 ) comp. 1 Samuel 3:2 Each lamp was supplied with cotton and about two wineglasses of the purest olive oil, which was sufficient to keep it burning during a long night. In Solomon's temple, instead of or in addition to this candlestick there were ten golden candlesticks similarly embossed, five in the right and five on the left. ( 1 Kings 7:49 ; 2 Chronicles 4:7 ) They were taken to Babylon. (Jeremiah 52:19 ) In the temple of Zerubbabel there was again a single candlestick. 1 Maccabees 1:21 : 4:49 .

Seven-Branched Candlestick - 108 pounds) of pure gold (hence the expression, "the most pure Candlestick," of Exodus 31, etc. The golden Candlestick was placed along the south wall of the Holy Place, facing the table of the loaves of proposition, the nozzles of the lamps being turned towards the north. The Bible does not say what became of the original seven-branched Candlestick
Hearse - ...
The Tenebrae hearse is a triangular Candlestick for fifteen candles; its use at Tenebrae dates from the 7th century, and the number of candles has varied at different times and places
Candlestick - Candlestick. In the tabernacle the golden "candlestick"—or lamp-stand—stood on the left hand as one entered the Holy Place, opposite the table of shewbread
Candlestick - In the tabernacle, the golden Candlestick stood on the left hand of one entering the Holy Place, opposite the table of showbread. See the beautiful and significant visions of the Candlestick by Zechariah and John, Zechariah 4:2-12 Revelation 1:12,20
Candlestick - Under the New Testament of the True Light, Christ Jesus, the seven separate Candlesticks represent the churches or the church in its entirety (Revelation 1:12-13; Revelation 1:20); no longer as the one Jewish church (represented by the one sevenfold Candlestick), restricted to one outward unity and locality. The Gentile churches will not realize their unity until the Jewish church as the stem, unites all the lamps in one Candlestick (Romans 11:16-24). Zechariah's Candlestick (Zechariah 4) is prophetical of that final church which shall join in one all the earth under Messiah the King, reigning in Jerusalem as the spiritual center and rallying point of all (compare Zephaniah 3:9; Zechariah 14:9; Zechariah 14:16-17; Jeremiah 3:17). The Candlestick is not the light, but bears it for the enlightening of all (Matthew 5:16). The Candlestick stands in the outer sanctuary, the type of the present dispensation on earth; but not in the inner holiest place, the type of the heavenly world wherein the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are both the temple and the light (Revelation 21:22-23). ...
In Revelation 2:5 "remove thy Candlestick" threatens not extinction of the candle, but removal of the seat of the light elsewhere. In Revelation 11:4 "the two Candlesticks" are connected with "the two witnesses," which Wordsworth identifies with the two Testaments; so they would represent the Old Testament and the New Testament churches. In Solomon's temple there were ten golden Candlesticks (1 Kings 7:49; 2 Chronicles 4:7). In the second temple, namely, Zerubbabel's, a single Candlestick was again placed (Zechariah 4:2-6; Zechariah 4:11), taken by Titus from the temple as restored by Herod, and carried in his triumph at Rome and deposited in the Temple of Peace. In John 8:12, "I am the light of the world," there is allusion to the two colossal golden Candlesticks lighted at the feast of tabernacles (which was then being held: John 7:2-37) after the evening sacrifice in one of the temple courts, and casting their beams on mount Olivet and on Jerusalem

Golden Candlesticks - (Revelation 1:10-20,) makes it proper to notice something of what seems to have been highly emblematical in our Lord's appearing in the midst of the golden Candlesticks. Of the Jewish church we read of one Candlestick of gold, with six branches, in the tabernacle, (Exodus 25:31-32) But here we read of seven Candlesticks, and the Lord Jesus in the midst. We can easily conceive concerning the one, that it was intended to prefigure the church, which until Christ came and gave light to it, like a Candlestick which is a receiver only, and hath no light in itself, is as nothing. And when in the gospel church we behold seven Candlesticks and the Lord Jesus in the discover that from the coming of Christ, when having finished redemption-work he returned to glory, he sent down the Holy Ghost in his seven-fold gifts to illumine the whole church of God with the revelation of his grace: so that the gracious office of the Holy Ghost in his unceasing agency is very blessedly set forth. And I do not think, that the Lord Jesus, in his high priestly office, could have been more strongly represented than by appearing thus in the midst of the Candlesticks, his churches

The first sanctuary contained three objects: the altar of incense in the centre, so as to be directly in front of the ark of the covenant ( 1 Kings 6:22 ) the table of shew-bread on its right or north side, and the golden Candlestick on the left or south side.

Censer - He may be supposed to have been misled (a) by the ambiguous instructions regarding it given in Exodus 30:6 : ‘thou shall put it before the veil that is by the ark of the testimony, before the mercy-scat that is over the testimony’; (b) by its designation as ἅγιον τῶν ἁγίων in Exodus 30:10; and (c) especially by the fact that in Exodus 25:23-40; Exodus 26:35, only the Candlestick and the table are mentioned as standing in the holy place

The brass utensils for the altar (Exodus 27:3) were pans, to receive the ashes and fat; shovels, for removing the ashes; basins, for the blood; flesh hooks, with three prongs, to take flesh out of the cauldron (1 Samuel 2:13-14); firepans, or censers, for taking coals off the altar, or for burning incense (Leviticus 16:12; Numbers 16:6-7; Exodus 25:38); the same Hebrew maktoth means snuff dishes, as "tongs" means snuffers for the Candlesticks. It was "before the veil that is by the ark of the testimony, before the mercy seat;" between the Candlestick and the shewbread table. Jesus' death rent the veil, and has brought the antitypes to the Candlestick, shewbread table, and altar of incense into the heavenly, holiest place
