The service of the priests, in offering gifts and sacrifices, is thus connected with the commandments given to Moses in the mount, respecting the making of the tabernacle. The words " See that thou make all things according to the pattern showed thee in the mount," as recorded in Exodus, were spoken to Moses respecting the holy vessels; (see Ex. 25:4040And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was showed thee in the mount. (Exodus 25:40),) but are in Heb. 8 quoted to prove that the priests and their ministrations were examples and shadows of heavenly things. The whole subject is therefore much blended. But as far as possible it is the object of the present exposition, to consider by themselves the Aaronic priesthood, the garments, consecration, and ordinary service.
