Tsav

  
BackForward
 6:3
6:3 The priest shall then put on his linen vestments, including his linen pants. He shall remove the ashes of the burnt offerings consumed by the fire that are on the altar, and place them near the altar.
Velavash hakohen mido vad umichnesey-vad yilbash al-besaro veherim et-hadeshen asher tochal ha'esh et-ha'olah al-hamizbe'ach vesamo etsel hamizbe'ach.



Commentary:

vestments
  (Targum; Ramban). Or, 'fitted tunic' (Rashi). Some say that these were of a lower quality than the priest's usual vestments (Yad, Temidim 2:10). See note on Leviticus 6:4.

remove the ashes
  With a shovel; see Exodus 27:3. (Tamid 1:4; Yad, Temidim 2:12).

near the altar
  To the southeast of the altar, some three handbreadths (9 inches) from the ramp (Ibid.). See Leviticus 1:16.
