And thou shalt anoint them, as thou didst anoint their father, that they may minister unto me in the priest's office: for their anointing shall surely be an everlasting priesthood throughout their generations.
And thou shall anoint them as thou didst anoint
For Aaron was first anointed, and then his sons:
that they may minister unto me in the priest's
which they might not do before their anointing, though separated
for it, and called unto it:
for their anointing shall surely be an everlasting
priesthood throughout their generations;
that is, this ceremony of anointing was to be used in all ages at
the investiture of the high priest with his office, until the
Messiah should come, who would put an end to the Aaronic
priesthood; for not common priests, only the successors of the
high priest, were anointed in later times; this present unction
serving for all the priests that should follow in successive
generations, so long as the priesthood continued.
