Exiting - and Reentering

In the next stage of the Yom Kippur service, after the High Priest concluded the incense service, uttered his prayer and exits the Sanctuary, he returns to the priest who is waiting for him outside the entrance. This priest has been waiting here since the bullock was slaughtered, holding the mizrak and moving it about so that its contents will not harden.

The High Priest now receives this vessel from his colleague and returns back into the Holy of Holies a second time, exactly as he did previously. Walking through the two curtains and carrying the vessel holding the blood of his offering, he comes back to spot "between the poles" where he placed the incense on the coals atop the foundation stone.
