CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
23:13 Sanctify - That he might keep them from pollution: for these most holy things were polluted when they were touched by any other person. He and his - Not only his eldest sons the high - priests successively, but all his posterity or all the priests; for the works here following were not peculiar to the high - priest, but common to all the priests.
And no one can become a high priest simply because he wants such an honor. He must be called by God for this work, just as Aaron was.
Amram married his father's sister Jochebed, and she gave birth to his sons, Aaron and Moses. (Amram lived to be 137 years old.)
"Call for your brother, Aaron, and his sons, Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar. Set them apart from the rest of the people of Israel so they may minister to me and be my priests.
Place the incense altar just outside the inner curtain that shields the Ark of the Covenant, in front of the Ark's cover--the place of atonement--that covers the tablets inscribed with the terms of the covenant. I will meet with you there.
"Tell Aaron and his sons to bless the people of Israel with this special blessing:
Then the Levitical priests must step forward, for the LORD your God has chosen them to minister before him and to pronounce blessings in the LORD's name. They are to decide all legal and criminal cases.
