How can we reconcile "le'Chol b'nei Aharon Tih'yeh" (in Pasuk 10) with "la'Kohen ha'Makriv Oso lo Sih'yeh"?


Rashi: All the Tahor Kohanim who belong to the Beis-Av 1 who are serving on that day share equally. 2 La'Kohen ha'Makriv excludes a Tevul Yom, Mechusar Kipurim and Onen.


Ramban #1, Moshav Zekenim #1: The Minchas Ma'afeh Tanur, Machavas and Marcheshes, which the Kohen baked, are given to the Kohen who brings them - as a reward for the work involved. Whereas the Minchas Soles, Minchas Chotei and Minchas Sotah, which are not baked and entail lees work, and Minchas Bikurim (the Omer) are distributed among all the Kohanim of that Beis-Av. 3


Ramban #2, Moshav Zekenim #2: "V'Chol Minchah Belulah Ba'Shemen va'Chareivah" (in Pasuk 10) incorporates all the Menachos, which are shared by all the Tahor Kohanim 4 of that Beis-Av. Whereas Pesukim 8, and 9 teach us that it is the Tahor Kohanim 5 who take the skins of the Olah as a reward for their service.


Sifsei Chachamim: Each Mishmar of Kohanim that served on any particular week was divided into six Batei Avos, each of which served on its designated day. [On Shabbos they all served].


Ramban: One, or two or three Kohanim are Sheluchim to offer an Olah on behalf of all the Tahor Kohanim. All stand by it, and all get a share, like -"Those who go to fight and those who guard the Kelim shall share (the spoils) equally (Shmuel 1, 30:24).


The Ramban retracts from this explanation, in face of Chazal that he subsequently cites (Refer to 7:9:1:3).


Including the Minchas Soles, which for some reason, is not mentioned in Pesukim 8, 9.


And not the owners (Ramban).
