John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 16:46

Incense — Which was a sign of intercession, and was to be accompanied with it. Go unto the congregation — He went with the incense, to stir up the people to repentance and prayer, to prevent their utter ruin. This he might do upon this extraordinary occasion, having God's command for his warrant, though ordinarily incense was to be offered only in the tabernacle.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Numbers 16:46

And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a censer, and put fire therein from off the (r) altar, and put on incense, and go quickly unto the congregation, and make an atonement for them: for there is wrath gone out from the LORD; the plague is begun.

(r) For it was not lawful to take any other fire, but of the altar of burnt offering, (Leviticus 10:1).
