Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 21:10


21:10 The garments - Those holy garments, which were peculiar to him. Shall not uncover his head - This being then the posture of mourners, #Lev 10:6|, though afterwards the custom was changed and mourners covered their heads, #2Sam 15:30|, #Esth 6:12|. Nor rent his clothes - Another expression of mourning.
