What did Moshe mean when he told the princes "Eis asher Tofu Eifu ... Basheilu"?


Rashi, Ramban, Targum Onkelos and Targum Yonasan: He informed them that whatever they wanted to bake or to cook tomorrow, they should bake or cook today. 1


Since it is not allowed to bake or to cook on Shabbos.


What did he mean when he added "ve'Eis Kol ha'Odeif..."?


Ramban #1 (citing Onkelos): After baking and cooking the two Omers, they ate part of it today and part tomorrow. 1


Ramban #2 (citing Ibn Ezra): They were permitted to cook and bake one Omer today, whereas the remaining Omer they kept until tomorrow, when they were told to eat it as it was. 2


Which they were initially hesitant to do (Ramban). It seems that they were permitted to eat as much of the two Omers as they fancied today, and whatever they left over for tomorrow would suffice - as that was the B'rachah of Shabbos (Ramban).


However, the Ramban prefers the previous explanation.


Why does it say here Shabason Shabbos before Kodesh, and it says below (35:2) "Kodesh Shabbos Shabason"?


Moshav Zekenim: This teaches that one must add from Chol onto Kodesh. Shevisah (refraining from Melachah) comes before the actual Kodesh, and also after the Kodesh (on Motza'ei Shabbos).
