Exodus 28:35

Context
28:35 The robe 1  is to be on Aaron as he ministers, 2  and his sound will be heard 3  when he enters the Holy Place before the Lord and when he leaves, so that he does not die.

1 tn Heb “it”; the referent (the robe) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

2 tn The form is a Piel infinitive construct with the lamed (ל) preposition: “to minister” or “to serve.” It may be taken epexegetically here, “while serving,” although S. R. Driver takes it as a purpose, “in order that he may minister” (Exodus, 308). The point then would be that he dare not enter into the Holy Place without wearing it.

3 sn God would hear the bells and be reminded that this priest was in his presence representing the nation and that the priest had followed the rules of the sanctuary by wearing the appropriate robes with their attachments.
