68 - THE HIGH PRIEST ENTERING THE SANCTUARY AT ANY BUT THE PRESCRIBED TIME


Leviticus 16:2 -- “And the LORD said to Moses: "Tell Aaron your brother not to come at just any time into the Holy Place inside the veil, before the mercy seat which is on the ark, lest he die; for I will appear in the cloud above the mercy seat.”

The Gemara of Menahoth says explicitly: “For entering the sanctuary (outside the time of service) one is liable to whipping.”*

* Men. 27b (Sonc. ed. p. 176)

The object of the commandment was: “to raise the estimation of the sanctuary in the eyes of the people.”*

* Moreh Nebuchim III, 45
