 16:3

 16:5
16:3 When Aaron enters [this inner] sanctuary, it must be with a young bull for a sin offering and a ram for a burnt offering.
Bezot yavo Aharon el-hakodesh befar ben-bakar lechatat ve'ayil le'olah.
16:4 He must put on a sanctified white linen tunic, and have linen pants on his body. He must [also] gird himself with a linen sash, and bind his [head] with a linen turban. These are sacred vestments, and [therefore], before putting them on, he must immerse in a mikvah.
Ketonet-bad kodesh yilbash umichnesey-vad yiheyu al-besaro uve'avnet bad yachgor uvemitsnefet bad yitsnof bigdey-kodesh hem verachats bamayim et-besaro ulevesham.
16:5 From the Israelite community, he shall [also] take two goats for sin offerings, and one ram for a burnt offering.
Ume'et adat beney Yisra'el yikach shney se'irey izim lechatat ve'ayil echad le'olah.



Commentary:

He must put on...
  On Yom Kippur, the High Priest wore four white linen vestments (Yad, Kley HaMikdash 8:3). The rest of the year, he would wear eight vestments (see Exodus 28:42).
