What does it mean that Aaron held his peace?

Leviticus 10:3 (ESV)

3 Then Moses said to Aaron, “This is what the LORD has said: ‘Among those who are near me I will be sanctified, and before all the people I will be glorified.’” And Aaron held his peace.

He was silent. He humbled himself under the mighty hand of God. He could not find any objection to this act of God. He complied and submitted.
