Why did Moshe say "Bring them", and not 'Bring us'?

1.

Rashi #1 (citing the Gemara in Bava Basra,119b, and the Mechilta): He prophesied that he would not enter Eretz Cana'an. 1

2.

Rashi #2 (according to the Maharshal): It was the current generation (not just Moshe), who would not enter the Land, only their children - despite the fact that the sin of the Meraglim had not yet taken place.


1

Presumably without realizing it.

2)

Why does the Torah use the word "Machon" and not 'Makom'?

1.

Rashi (citing the Mechilta) and Targum Yonasan: To teach us that the earthly Beis-ha'Mikdash is exactly opposite Hashem's Throne. 1


1

Since the word "Machon" can be read 'Mechuvan' (exactly opposite - the dwelling of Hashem [Ibid.]).

3)

Why the double expression "Tevi'emo ve'Sita'eimo"?

1.

Seforno: Bring them to the land and entrench them there permanently - that they should never be exiled from it.

2.

Targum Onkelos and Targum Yonasan: Bring them to the land and encamp them there (settle them down).

4)

What does the Toah mean when it refers to "the Mikdash which Hashem's Hands established"?

1.

Rashi #1 (citing the Mechilta): The fact that the Torah writes "Yadecha" (in the plural), indicates how dear the Beis-ha'Mikdash is in Hashem's Eyes - When He created the world, He created it with only One Hand, 1 yet the Beis-ha'Mikdash that He will build when He will reign Supreme over the entire world 2 He will build with Two Hands.

2.

Rashi #2 (in Succah, 41a): It hints that the third Beis-ha'Mikdash 3 will descend from Heaven, fully built.

3.

Seforno: It refers to the plans of the Beis-ha'Mikdash, which Hashem handed to David ha'Melech, 4 just as He handed the plans of the Mishkan to Moshe. 5
