1.

Ba'al ha'Turim, Moshav Zekenim: It hints at the three people who need to shave all their hair [on their bodies, or for a Nazir, on his head] - a Nazir, 1 a Metzora and the Levi'im (when they were inaugurated). 2

2.

Kidushin 30a says that this is the middle verse of the Torah. This is unlike our tradition! Daf Al ha'Daf (citing R. Y. Alter) - it is the middle of the verses with big letters. 3

See POINT BY POINT SUMMARY OF THE DAF (Kidushin 30a, 3:a-c:2).

What does the Pasuk mean when it writes "v'Es ha'Nesek Lo Yegale'ach"? There are no hairs in the Nesek!

2.

Ramban, Moshav Zekenim: It is a Lo Sa'aseh against shaving the skin of the Nesek. 1

Ramban, Moshav Zekenim: Because it causes hair to grow there.
