Having stated Lo Yikrav" in the previous Pasuk why does it repeat it here?

1.

Rashi and Seforno: To indicate that it is not befitting for a Ba'al-Mum to bring Korbanos (just as he would not venture to serve before a human king [Rashi] 1 ). 2


1

Rashi: as the Pasuk writes in Mal'achi 1:8: "If you were to bring it to your officer, would he accept you... ?"

2

Seforno: As the pasuk writes in Esther, 4:2 "Because it is not befitting to come before the king wearing sack-cloth!"

2)

Why does the Torah repeat "Ki Chol Ish"?

1.

Toras Kohanim: Having issued the prohibition on Aharon's offspring (See previous Pasuk), the Pasuk comes to include Aharon himself.

3)

What is the meaning of "Charum"?

1.

Rashi (from Bechoros, 43b): It means that his nose is sunken between his eyes - to the point that he is able to paint both eyes with one stroke. 1

2.

Ramban, Moshav Zekenim (from Bechoros 43b): It means a nose that is sunken, 2 even if one cannot paint the two eyes with one stroke.

3.

Targum Yonasan: It means simply a deformed nose.


1

Moshav Zekenim: Why did Rashi explain like R. Yosi? Chachamim disagree, and say that he exaggerated!

2

Ramban: "Oh Charum" include a shrunken nose, one that is blocked or that drips.

4)

Why does the Pasuk refer to a misshapen nose as "Charum" (which is from the root 'Cherem', i.e. destruction)?

1.

Ramban, Moshav Zekenim: Because the beauty of a person's face lies in the nose, and when it is misshapen, it affects the entire face.

5)

What is the meaning of "Saru'a"?

1.

Rashi: It means that one of a pair of twin limbs 1 is larger than the other.

2.

Targum Yonasan: It means a sprained thigh. 2


1

Rashi: such as the eyes or the calves.

2

Refer to 22:23:1:2.
