1. Abaye lists the order of services performed on an ordinary day in the Beis ha'Mikdash.
2. The Gemara explains how Abaye knows that the large wood arrangement was set up before the smaller one.
3. If one has an opportunity to perform a Mitzvah, he should not ignore it.
4. Rava states a law regarding putting on Tefilin based on #3.
5. The Gemara proves that the first five lamps of the Menorah were arranged, and then the other two.
A BIT MORE
1. He starts with the setting up of the large arrangement of wood for burning the Korbanos of the day, and he ends with the afternoon Korban Tamid.
2. While all of the Korbanos were burned on the large arrangement, there was a small arrangement atop the southwest corner of the Mizbe'ach from which coals were taken for the offering of the Ketores. The verse implies that the larger arrangement was set up first.
3. Reish Lakish cites this as a reason for why one would first remove the ashes from the inner Mizbe'ach before setting up the lamps of the Menorah.
4. Rava teaches that one first should don the Tefilin Shel Yad, in order not to pass up an opportunity to do a Mitzvah (and his hand first encounters his arm before it goes up to the head), and only then should he don the Tefilin Shel Rosh.
5. The Gemara says that it is clear that two are left for last and not one, as the verse states the word "lamps" in the plural form when it refers to the last lamps.
