Take Aaron and his sons - The whole subject of this chapter has been anticipated in the notes, Exodus 28:1; (note), etc., and Exodus 29:1; (note), etc., in which all the sacrifices, rites, and ceremonies have been explained in considerable detail; and to those notes the reader is referred. It is only necessary to observe that Aaron and his sons were not anointed until now. Before, the thing was commanded; now, first performed.
A bullock two rams a basket - compare Exodus 29:1-3. This shows the coherence of this part of Leviticus with the latter part of Exodus. The basket of unleavened bread used on this occasion appears to have contained:
(1) cakes or loaves of the ordinary unleavened bread;
Rabbinical tradition says that there were six cakes of each sort.
