To which goat is the Pasuk referring?

1.

Rashi, Seforno, Rashbam (citing Zevachim, 101b) and Targum Yonasan: It is referring to the goat of Rosh Chodesh Musaf. 1


1

Refer to 10:17:1:1. It does not refer to the goat of the Chatas of the Mi'lu'im and that of Nachshon, which were both eaten (Rashbam). According to Targum Yonasan, they were burnt, - but Moshe did not enquire after them (See Peirush Yonasan).

2)

Why was it burned?

1.

Rashi #1: Because it came into contact with Tum'ah. 1

2.

Rashi #2 and Targum Yonasan 2 : Because Aharon and his sons were On'nim.


1

Not because of Aninus, because (as opposed to the second opinion), he holds that Aninus Laylah is Mutar min ha'Torah, in which case could have eaten it at nighttime (Rashi, on Pasuk 19. See also Ramban).

2

See Peirush Yonasan.

3)

What is the significance of the double Lashon "Darosh Dorash Moshe"?

1.

Rashi: Moshe wanted to know why the one was burned and why the others were not eaten.

4)

Why did Moshe address Elazar and Isamar and not Aharon?

1.

Rashi: In deference to Aharon he turned towards his sons and vented his anger. 1


1

Even though in fact, he was equally angry with Aharon, since all three had burnt the Chatas.

5)

Why does the Pasuk add the word "Leimor"?

1.

Rashi: Because Moshe asked them for a reply. 1
