על ראשו. על ראש אהרן לבדו כי הוא הכהן המשיח. והנה זה היה לפני שומו המצנפת על ראשו. כי על הראש יצוק לבדו. וכתוב כשמן הטוב על הראש יורד על הזקן זקן אהרן: HIS HEAD. Only on Aaron’s head,36The anointing oil was poured only upon Aaron’s head. as he was the anointed priest. Now Aaron was anointed before the mitre was placed on his head,37Even though Scripture mentions the donning of the mitre before it mentions the anointment. Nahmanides takes issue with I.E. He writes, “He wound [the mitznefet] around and around the head, but left the middle of the head uncovered, and it was on that place that he poured the oil” (Ramban’s Commentary on the Torah, Chavel translation). for Moses poured the oil only upon the head.38Not upon the mitre. Hence the oil had to be poured upon Aaron’s head before the mitre was placed upon it. We similarly read, It is like the precious oil upon the head, Coming down upon the beard; Even Aaron’s beard (Ps. 133:2).39We thus see that the oil was poured only over Aaron’s head. It was not poured upon the mitre.
