What was Miriam looking out for?

1.

Ramban: Refer to 2:2:1:1**.

2.

Seforno: She assumed that some Egyptian or other (who was bathing in the river) 1 would take the baby home (and she wanted to keep track of his whereabouts). 2


1

Refer to 2:3:3:1.

2

Seeing as the Egyptians were a promiscuous people, and it was not uncommon to find abandoned babies in public places (Seforno).

2)

What is the difference in how one puts oil on the two kinds of Ma'afeh Tanur?

1.

Rashi: The Chalos are mixed with oil; the wafers are anointed (smeared) with oil..

3)

How much oil does every regular Minchah require?

1.

Rashi: Every regular Minchah contains a Log 1 of oil.


1

Six egg-volumes.

4)

What does the Kohen do with the leftover oil after he has anointed the wafers?

1.

Rashi #1 (like one opinion in Menachos, 75a): Having anointed the wafers once, like a Greek 'Chaf' (refer to Shemos 29:2:151:1, 29:2:152:1 and the notes on them), he anoints them again and again, until the Log is used up.

2.

Rashi #2 (like one opinion in Menachos, 75a): After anointing the wafers once, the rest of the oil is distributed among the Kohanim who are serving on that day, to eat it.

5)

Why does the Torah write "ba'Shemen" twice?

1.

Rashi: To teach that second and third oil 1 may be used for the Menachos.

2.

Moshav Zekenim (from Menachos 63b): R. Yehudah learns from this that one must bring all Chalos or all wafers. Perhaps this depends on the argument of R. Yoshiyah and R. Yonason (Sanhedrin 85b) about whether "and" implies both together, or even one.


1

Refer to 2:4:151:1 and the note there.

6)

Rashi writes that the second and third oil [that exudes from the olive] may be used for the Menachos. We do not find this Drashah!

1.

Riva, Moshav Zekenim: Rather, we infer from "Kasis la'Me'or" that Zach is required for the Menorah, but not for Menachos, like Rashi himself wrote (refer to Shemos 27:20:5:1). 1


1

Riva: Kasis la'Me'or teaches that Menachos do not require Zach; this is Machshir only the second oil. We need ba'Shemen

7)

ותתצב: למה לא כתוב 'ותתיצב'?

1.

מהר"ל, גבורות ה' (פרק י"ז עמ' ע"ט ד"ה ותתצב): חז"ל דרשו שמרים התנבאה שתלד אמהּ את המושיע ולכן היא התייצבה שם לראות כיצד תתקיים נבואתה, ולכן כתוב כאן "ותתצב"- לשון נפעל ולשון מתפעל מחוברים- לשון התפעל כמשמעו, ולשון נפעל לומר שהיה זה בגלל קבלת נבואה. 1


1

תתיצב הוא נפעל, והת' (השניה) מנוקדת בצירה לרמוז ללשון נפעל- כמו 'תֵעשה'.

8)

ותתצב: למה לא כתוב 'ותעמוד'?

1.

מהר"ל, גבורות ה' (פי"ז עמ' ע"ט ד"ה ותתצב): חז"ל דרשו זאת כלפי שכינה (על שם "ויבא ה' ויתיצב") כי הייתה סיבה אלוקית שמשה לא ינזק מהיאור, ולכן יש לו חוזק וקיום ולכן לא כתוב 'ותעמוד'. 1


1

עיי"ש בהמשך דרש הפסוק על זה הדרך. וע"ע במהר"ל בחידושי אגדות (ח"ב עמ' מ"ד ד"ה ויש, סוטה דף יא א) מה שהוסיף.
