Understanding everything in the Torah to be intentional, the sages of Jewish tradition, of course, had explanations as to why the command regarding parents is phrased differently in Leviticus than it is in both Exodus and Deuteronomy, each of which contain the Ten Commandments.

Is this some kind of warning to Aaron that he has a job to do, so get to it, but do it right or I will make sure you end up like your kids? That seems like unnecessarily harsh treatment of Aaron, but perhaps it is to guide us toward a deeper idea surrounding the urgency of atonement.
