The Inauguration Sacrifice of an Appointed Priest
מנחת כהן ביום כהונתו
ויקרא 6.15 Vayikra
15. ’And the Priest from his sons who is anointed in his place shall perform it an Eternal Statute to Hashem; it shall be inflamed in its entirety-וְהַכֹּהֵן הַמָּשִׁיחַ תַּחְתָּיו מִבָּנָיו יַעֲשֶׂה אֹתָהּ חָק עוֹלָם לַיהוָה כָּלִיל תָּקְטָר (3281=14=8or 4491=18 counting final Nun and Mem as 700 and 600).
The verse can be divided so:
· And the Priest from his sons who is anointed in his place shall perform it-וְהַכֹּהֵן הַמָּשִׁיחַ תַּחְתָּיו מִבָּנָיו יַעֲשֶׂה אֹתָהּ (2172+6 words=18);
· An Eternal Statute to Hashem; it shall be inflamed in its entirety- חָק עוֹלָם לַיהוָה כָּלִיל תָּקְטָר (1669+5 words=1674=18 counting final Mem as 600).
Rashi clarifies here that the High Priest would delegate a Priest to perform the daily Mincha- Offering in his stead. However if the High Priest had died and a successor had yet to be appointed then this offering was to be brought by one of his sons until such appointment was made (Menachot 51.b). This offering is not scooped with the three fingers but is offered in its entirety.
The Appointed Priest
1088=17=8 or + 2 words=1090=10=1 (Nun 700)
The gematria of the word “Statute”- חָק is 108.
The gematria of the word “entirety”- כָּלִיל is 100=1.
To Hashem it shall be inflamed in its entirety
לַיהוָה כָּלִיל תָּקְטָר
Inflamed in its entirety
It shall be inflamed
