32 - HONORING THE PRIESTS


Leviticus 21:8 -- “Therefore you shall consecrate him, for he offers the bread of your God. He shall be holy to you, for I the LORD, who sanctify you, am holy.”
Leviticus 21:6 -- “They shall be holy to their God and not profane the name of their God, for they offer the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and the bread of their God; therefore they shall be holy.”

“In order to raise the estimation of the temple, those who ministered therein received great honor; and the priests and the Levites were therefore distinguished from the rest.”*

* Moreh Nebuchim III, 44

“But if a bastard is learned in the Law, and a high priest is ignorant of the Law, the bastard who is learned in the Law takes precedence of the high priest who is ignorant of the Law.”*

* Hor. 13a
