What is this Pasuk coming to teach us?

1.

Rashi (citing Toras Kohanim): It is coming to teach us that someone who eats a Nivlas Of Tahor becomes Tamei, and is forbidden to eat Kodshim (or to enter the Beis-Hamikdash). 1

2.

Ramban, Moshav Zekenim: It is a warning against eating Neveilos (animals that died without Shechitah) and T'reifos 2 (they were mortally injured), e.g. via a lion or a bear. He will become Tamei (through moving or touches them) and forbidden to Kodshim until the night after he immerses.

3.

Rashbam: It teaches us that a Kohen is forbidden to eat Nivlas Of Tamei. 3

Refer to 11:40:1:1. See also Ramban, end of Dibur.

2

Ramban, Moshav Zekenim: The Torah mentioned eating them, for people are prone to eat them. It warned about touching Sheratzim, for they disgust people, and are not normally eaten.

3

Refer to 22:8:2:1.

2)

Having already taught us this Halachah (11:39), why does the Torah repeat it here?

1.

Rashbam: Bearing in mind that the Torah is speaking here to the Kohanim, it teaches them That, even though they are permitted to eat a Chatas ha'Of, on which Melikah was performed (it is technically a Neveilah), they are not permitted to eat [any other] Nivlas Of Tahor. 1


1

Refer to 17:15:1:1, 17:15:2:1.

3)

Why does the Torah add the word "bah"?

1.

Rashi (in 11:40): To preclude someone who eats Neveilah 1 from being Metamei his clothes. 2


1

Rashi (Ibid): If for example, someone stuffs a piece of Neveilah into his throat.

2

Rashi (Ibid.): Unless he carries it.
