Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Leviticus 10:6

_ _ Uncover not your heads — They who were ordered to carry out the two bodies, being engaged in their sacred duties, were forbidden to remove their turbans, in conformity with the usual customs of mourning; and the prohibition “neither rend your garments,” was, in all probability, confined also to their official costume. For at other times the priests wore the ordinary dress of their countrymen and, in common with their families, might indulge their private feelings by the usual signs or expressions of grief.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Leviticus 10:3-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Leviticus 10:6

Uncover not your head — That is, give no signification of your sorrow; mourn not for them; partly lest you should seem to justify your brethren, and tacitly reflect upon God as too severe; and partly lest thereby you should be diverted from, or disturbed in your present service, which God expects to be done chearfully. But bewail the burning — Not so much in compassion to them, as in sorrow for the tokens of divine displeasure.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Leviticus 10:6

And Moses said unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar, his sons, (c) Uncover not your heads, neither rend your clothes; lest ye die, and lest wrath come upon all the people: but let your brethren, the whole house of Israel, bewail the burning which the LORD hath (d) kindled.

(c) As though you lamented for them, preferring your carnal affection to God's just judgment; (Leviticus 19:18; Deuteronomy 14:1).

(d) In destroying Nadab and Abihu the chief, and menacing the rest, unless they repent.
