Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Leviticus 8:3-5

_ _ gather thou all the congregation together, etc. — It was manifestly expedient for the Israelitish people to be satisfied that Aaron’s appointment to the high dignity of the priesthood was not a personal intrusion, nor a family arrangement between him and Moses; and nothing, therefore, could be a more prudent or necessary measure, for impressing a profound conviction of the divine origin and authority of the priestly institution, than to summon a general assembly of the people, and in their presence perform the solemn ceremonies of inauguration, which had been prescribed by divine authority.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Leviticus 8:1-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

All the congregation — The elders who represented all, and as many of the people as would, and could get thither, that all might be witnesses both of Aaron's commission from God, and of his work and business.
