Why does the Torah write "Yevi'ehah", and not "Yavi"?

1.

Ramban, Moshav Zekenim citing the Rosh: Sometimes the Torah first mentions the object generally, and then describes it in detail. 1

2.

Ramban (according to Kabalah): See Ramban.


1

See for example, Shemos, 2:6 and Yechezkel, 10:3 (Ramban).

2)

Why did Moshe see fit to repeat all the aspects of the Mishkan (albeit in general terms) to the people?

1.

Ramban, Moshav Zekenim: Moshe already told them about the Mishkan in detail (in Terumah from Shemos 24:2) and in general terms (in Ki Sissa, from Shemos 31:7). Now that the time to donate had arrived, he gave them a broad picture of all that was required, to prompt them to donate generously. 1


1

The Torah will repeat in detail what Betzalel and his team of workers performed (later, from Shemos 36:8), and one final time to record the successful completion of the mission and that Moshe blessed them (in Pikudei, from Shemos 39:13 [Ramban]).

3)

What is "Nediv Libo"?

1.

Rashi: Since his heart makes him volunteer, he is called Nediv Lev. 1

2.

Moshav Zekenim: Nediv describes the person. 2 "Lev" refers to the intellect, and not the physical organ.


1

Ibn Ezra: We find that sometimes the adjective precedes the noun, e.g. "bi'Gdol Zero'acha" (15:16).

2

I.e. every generous person, his heart will bring him to donate

4)

Why must it say "Kechu me'Itchem"? From whom else could they take?!

1.

Moshav Zekenim: It must totally belong to them, but not something stolen.
