Did the priests wear underwear?

“Make linen undergarments as a covering for the body, reaching from the waist to the thigh. Aaron and his sons must wear them whenever they enter the tent of meeting or approach the altar to minister in the Holy Place, so that they will not incur guilt and die.”  Exodus 28:42-43
            They did.  Every part of the priests’ garments were important to make sure it fit the qualifications of the role.  The underwear hid the priest’s privates discreetly and also made sure the priests were comfortable.  All of the priest’s uniform was important.
