The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleExodus 29:6
And thou shall put the mitre upon his head…
Which was made
of linen, and was a wrap of linen about his head in the form of a
and put the holy crown upon the mitre;
the holy crown was a plate of
gold which had these words, "holiness to the Lord", engraven on it; and
so says the Targum of Jonathan,
``on which the holy name was engraven;''
the mitre was upon the top of his head, this in the forefront of that;
it was upon Aaron's forehead, and reached from ear to ear, and was
fastened behind with a blue lace; this was like a crown or a diadem,
and denotes the honour and dignity of the priestly office: Christ is a
priest on his throne, and his saints are a royal priesthood, even kings
as well as priests unto God.
