    Definitions for Leviticus 6:20

    Ephah - To surround; compass.

    Clarke's Commentary on Leviticus 6:20

    In the day when he is anointed - Not only in that day, but from that day forward, for this was to them and their successors a statute for ever. See Leviticus 6:22.

    Barnes' Notes on Leviticus 6:20

    See Leviticus 4:3. Aaron's sons here spoken of (as in Leviticus 6:22) must be the succession of high priests who succeeded him. The day of this offering was probably the eighth day of the ceremony of consecration Leviticus 8:35; Leviticus 9:1, when the high priest appears to have entered upon the duties of his office.

    A meat offering perpetual - Jewish tradition is in favor of these words implying that this מנחה mı̂nchāh was offered by the high priest as a daily rite from the time of his consecration.

    Wesley's Notes on Leviticus 6:20

    6:20 When he is anointed - For high - priest for he only of all the priests was to be anointed in future ages. This law of his consecration was delivered before, and is here repeated because of some additions made to it. Perpetual - Whensoever any of them shall be so anointed. At night - Or, in the evening; the one to be annexed to the morning - sacrifice, the other to the evening - sacrifice, over and besides that meal - offering which every day was to be added to the daily morning and evening sacrifices.
