16:32 The priest who is anointed and installed to be [High] Priest in his ancestor's place shall make [this] atonement, wearing the sacred vestments of white linen.
Vechiper hakohen asher-yimshach oto va'asher yemale et-yado lechahen tachat aviv velavash et-bigdey habad bigdey hakodesh.
16:33 He shall be the one to make atonement in the holy [inner] sanctuary, in the Communion Tent, and on the altar. The atonement that he makes shall be for the priests and for the people of the community.
Vechiper et-mikdash hakodesh ve'et-Ohel Mo'ed ve'et-hamizbe'ach yechaper ve'al hakohanim ve'al-kol-am hakahal yechaper.



Commentary:

ancestor's place
  That is, whoever is High Priest just as was Aaron, the father of all priests (cf. Sifra).
