Why did Moshe add the word "ha'Nosarim"?

1.

Rashi #1 and Targum Yonasan: It insinuates that Elazar and Isamar survived the death-sentence 1 on account of Aharon's participation in the sin of the Golden Calf. 2

2.

Rashi #2 (in Chagigah, 11b): They too, deserved to be burnt, and they were spared only because Hashem took pity on Aharon.


1

As the Torah indicates in Devarim 9:20 ("where the word "Lehashmido" refers to the death of all of Aharon's sons [Rashi]).

2

And it was only due to Moshe's Tefilah that Nadav and Avihu were spared (as Moshe himself explained (Ibid).

2)

Which Minchah is "ha'Minchah" referring to?

1.

Rashi: It is referring to Minchas Shemini and the Minchah of Nachshon. 1


1

(See Bamidbar 7:12 & 13). It does not refer to the Minchah of Rosh Chodesh, since it was not brought on account of the Milu'im (See Sifsei Chachamim).

3)

Why did Moshe see fit to instruct them to eat them?

1.

Rashi (Pasuk 19): Because, although a Kohen Gadol who is an Onein is permitted to bring Korbanos, he is not permitted to eat them.

4)

Seeing as all S'tam Menachos are brought as Matzos, why did he need to add the word "Matzos"?

1.

Rashi: Because this Minchah was unique, inasmuch as it was a one-time Minchas Tzibur.
