Bearing in mind that the Pasuk in Shemos (29:21) mentions the sprinkling of the Shemen ha'Mishchah and the blood before the burning of the Eil ha'Milu'im, why does the Torah here mention it afterwards?


Ramban: Taking its cue from the fact that, in the same Pasuk the Torah adds "ve'Kadash Hu u'vanav ... ", 1 it mentions it last because these sprinklings 2 finalized the Kedushah of Aharon and his sons, as the Pasuk goes on to state here.


A term that it did not use there in connection with the anointing.


Which may well have been performed with the oil and the blood combined (just like those of the blood of the bull and the goat on Yom Kipur [See Vayikra 16:18] Ramban).


Were the oil and the blood mixed (as were the bloods of the bull and the goat or not) or were they sprinkled separately?


Ramban: The question remains unanswered, since there is no indication either way.


Seeing as the Pasuk here indicates that the Kedushah of Aharon and his sons was finalized via these sprinklings and not via the anointing (as we just explained), why, in Pasuk 12, did the Torah write "Vayimshach oso Lekadsho"?


Ramban: Because the Kedushah process began there and ended here.
