The Torah addresses Aharon and his sons to
additional laws relating to their service.
The ashes of the korban olah -- the
offering burnt on the altar
throughout the night -- are to be removed from the area by the kohen
after he takes off his special linen clothing. The
olah is brought by someone who forgot to perform a
positive commandment of the Torah. The kohen retains
the skin. The fire on the altar must be kept constantly ablaze.
The korban mincha is a meal offering of
flour, oil and spices. A handful is
burned on the altar and a kohen eats the remainder before
it becomes leaven.

offered by the kohen gadol
each day, and by Aharon's sons and future

brought after an accidental transgression), is described, as are the
