The mishna in tamid 3:4 indicates there were 93 keilim used in the Beit HaMikdash daily. Is there a source which lists all 93?

  • I haven’t counted but would point you to the Mishnayot found in the beginning of Sefer Emek HaMelech. It is the listing of all the vessels which were hidden away before the destruction of the Temple. It is the same text that is found in the Copper Scroll which was discovered at Qumran.

  • It starts at the beginning of chapter 11. hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=7307&st=&pgnum=28 Commented Apr 12, 2018 at 4:13
  • @YaacovDeane - I can't read your link, is there an English translation somewhere online? I can definitely see some of the items on the Copper Scroll being on such a list, like(#12) "gold and silver vessels for tithe, sprinkling basins, sacrificial bowls, libation vessels-609 items(!)". But they don't get too specific. I would like to see both translations and see how they relate, though.

Here (starting from the bottom of the right column) is a list of 31 vessels, with 3 of each, totaling 93. copy of sefer Tamid Yishtasheun quoting Ezras Kohanim
