(supernatural remedy) of reading the incense
offering, and of the benefits it brings, especially when read from parchment.
who reads the scriptural account of the incense offering is as if he offered
the incense in the Holy Temple himself. Its reading has the same power as when
Aharon, the High Priest, used the (secret of the) incense offering to stop the
plague and the Angel of Death. The secret had to have been revealed to Moshe
for a Heavenly Voice asked, 'Who revealed this secret to my children?'."
Therefore, Moshe received the secret of the incense offering at the time of the
Giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai from the Prosecuting Angel and passed it
down to his brother, Aharon, the High Priest. Since then, we have this
knowledge from generation to generation.
recitation of the incense offering from a text written in Torah script is a
segula for merit, wealth, and success in all
endeavors. (Caf HaChaim-Chapt. 132, Sec. 23)
