 6:12  6:13
6:13 This is the offering that Aaron and his descendants must bring from the day that [any one of them] is anointed [as High Priest]. It shall consist of 1/10 ephah of wheat meal, and it shall be a daily meal offering, with one half [offered] in the morning, and one half in the evening.
Zeh korban Aharon uvanav asher-yakrivu l'Adonay beyom himashach oto asirit ha'efah solet minchah tamid machatsitah baboker umachatsitah ba'arev.



Commentary:

from the day
  (Saadia). Literally 'on the day.' This is thus part of the inauguration ceremony of every priest (Menachoth 78a; Rashi; Yad, Kley HaMikdash 5:16). A common priest only brings this offering on the day he is installed, while the high priest brings it every day (Yad, Temidim 3:18).

as High Priest
  (Targum Yonathan; Rashbam. See Leviticus 6:15.

1/10 ephah
  Around 2 quarts. See Exodus 16:36, Leviticus 5:11, 5:15.

one half [offered] in the morning...
  Twelve loaves were baked (see Leviticus 6:14). According to some, they were broken in half, with the first halves offered in the morning, and the others in the evening (Yad, Maaseh HaKorbanoth 13:4). According to others, 6 loaves were offered in the morning, and 6 in the evening (Raavad ibid.).
