Leviticus 21:12

Adam Clarke
Bible Commentary

The crown of the anointing oil - is upon him - By his office the priest represented Christ in his sacrificial character; by his anointing, the prophetic influence; and by the crown, the regal dignity of our Lord.

Albert Barnes
Notes on the Whole Bible
