- This chapter contains ordinances relative to the true priests.
The prince evidently means Christ, and the words in ver. (2),
may remind us that no other can enter heaven, the true
sanctuary, as Christ did; namely, by virtue of his own
excellency, and his personal holiness, righteousness, and
strength. He who is the Brightness of Jehovah's glory entered by
his own holiness; but that way is shut to the whole human race,
and we all must enter as sinners, by faith in his blood, and by
the power of his grace.
