yoma 34

the fragile physical body.
ensuring that the water isn't too cold for the High Priest's delicate body.
and clothing it in the finest of expensive linens

(the High Priest has to immerse many times on Yom Kippur, and if his body was delicate the water would be heated by placing pre-heated metal. later on the page are described the various items of clothing he would wearing, and their value)
