And thou shall put the mitre upon his head
Which was made of linen, and was a wrap of linen about his head in the form of a turban:
and put the holy crown upon the mitre;
the holy crown was a plate of gold which had these words, "holiness to the Lord", engraven on it; and so says the Targum of Jonathan,
``on which the holy name was engraven;''
the mitre was upon the top of his head, this in the forefront of that; it was upon Aaron's forehead, and reached from ear to ear, and was fastened behind with a blue lace; this was like a crown or a diadem, and denotes the honour and dignity of the priestly office: Christ is a priest on his throne, and his saints are a royal priesthood, even kings as well as priests unto God.
