To whom does "Lo Seitz'u" refer?

1.

Ramban #1: It refers to Aharon, who was permitted to perform the Avodah 1 in his capacity as Kohen Gadol, and to his sons in the future, but not to the present (since they were On'nim, and not permitted to serve on that day).

2.

Ramban #2: It refers to Aharon's sons in the present as well, who, like their father, were forbidden to leave the area of Pesach Ohel Mo'ed even on that day 2 in honor of the Simchah. 3

3.

Moshav Zekenim (from Sanhedrin 18a, Sifra Mechilta d'Milu'im 28): It teaches that if a Kohen Gadol's relative died, he does not follow the bier (closely. When the procession moves to a new area), he appears (enters the area from which it left). 4


1

Refer to 8:35:1:1.

2

In the form of a Hora'as Sha'ah (Ramban).

3

See Ramban DH 'Veyitachen'.

4

Moshav Zekenim citing R. Yehudah ha'Chasid: This is difficult, for Stam Sifra is R. Yehudah, and R. Yehudah says (Sanhedrin 18a) that he does not leave the Mikdash at all!

2)

Since Aharon and his sons were forbidden to leave Pesach Ohel Mo'ed, how was Elazar able to burn Parah Adumah on Nisan 2 (Rashi, Gitin 60b? He needed to go outside the Machaneh - Bamidbar 19:3!)

1.

Moshav Zekenim: A Mitzvah is different (this was permitted).
