What does the Torah mean when it writes "Kol Ish asher Yikrav ... el ha'Kodshim"?

1.

Rashi: It means Someone who (not touches, but) who eats Kodshim be'Tum'ah. 1


1

Rashi: Because if one would be Chayav Kares for touching Kodshim be'Tum'ah, the Pasuk in Vayikra (7:20 & 21) which prescribes Kares for eating them be'Tum'ah would be superfluous.

2)

Then why does the Torah say "asher Yikrav"?

1.

Rashi: To teach us that one is only Chayav Kares if the parts of the Korban that go on the Mizbe'ach have been brought, and it is ready to eat.

3)

Why does it mention Kares three times in connection with Tum'ah?

1.

Rashi (citing Shevo'os, 7a): One is a K'lal (all Kodshim); one, a P'rat (Shelamim)

4)

What does "ve'Tum'aso alav" mean?

1.

Rashi: It means that the person (and not the Basar) 1 is Tamei.


1

Rashi: Because "ve'Tum'aso alav" implies that it is possible to remove the Tum'ah (through Tevilah), and food is not subject to Tevilah.

5)

And why does the Pasuk conclude "Ani Hashem"?

1.

Rashi: To preclude the notion that the perpetrator is cut off from the people in his location and that he can go and live somewhere else. 1


1

Rashi: Since Hashem is to be found everywhere.
