What exactly, is Hashem telling Moshe in this Pasuk and in the next one?

Why must the Kohen who removes the ashes from the Mizbe'ach change his clothes?

2.

Ramban: The Kohanim had two sets of clothing, one better quality (newer?), the other, inferior quality - and it is a Mitzvah when taking out the ashes to change into the latter (for the reason cited by Rashi).
