How was Uziel the uncle of Aharon?

1.

Rashi: Because he was Amram's brother.

2)

Why was the removal of the bodies of Nadav and Avihu from the Kodesh necessary?

1.

Rashi: As a person would say to his friend 'Remove the dead body from before the Kalah'. 1

With reference to the Simchah of the inauguration of the Mishkan. Refer to Sifsei Chachamim.

3)

The Sifra (Mechilta d'Milu'im 26) learns from here that Kohanim may not become Tamei Mes. It says explicitly "Lo Yitama b'Amav" (21:1)! And a Kohen Hedyot has a Mitzvah to become Tamei for relatives!

1.

Da'as Zekenim, Hadar Zekenim, Moshav Zekenim: A Kohen Hedyot on the day he is anointed 1 is like a Kohen Gadol. This is why Elazar and Isamar were forbidden to grow their hair long or tear their clothes 2 ; it says after this "Ki Shemen Mishchas Hashem Aleichem" (verse 7).

5)

Why are there two Ta'amim (notes) on the word "Kirvu"?

1.

Pesikta Zutresa: This hints that Misha'el and Eltzafan were afraid to enter to take them out, so Moshe needed to tell them twice.
