Why does the Torah insert the word "me'Cheiko" here, but omit it in the previous Pasuk?


Rashi: To teach us that Hashem's Midah of goodness works faster than His Midah of punishment. 1


Because "me'Cheiko" implies that even whilst his hand was still in his bosom the skin had reverted back to normal, whereas when it only turned into leprosy after he had removed his hand from his bosom (Rashi).
