Which Korbanos is the Pasuk referring to?

1.

Rashi and Ramban: it is referring to the Musafin that are recorded in Pinchas.

2)

Why does the Pasuk allude to them here?

1.

Rashi and Ramban: To teach us that the various parts of the Korban are not dependent upon one another - If there are no bulls, bring the rams; if there are no rams, bring the lambs. 1

2.

Seforno: To incorporate Chol ha'Mo'ed in the realm of the Musafin.


1

Ramban and Seforno: It does not list them here because it lists them in Pinchas.

3)

Why does the Torah write "Shiv'as" and not 'Shiv'ah'?

1.

Rashi: 'Shiv'ah' is an adjective; "Shivah", a noun - a group of seven. 1


1

See also Sifsei Chachamim.

4)

What is the definition of "Meleches Avodah"?

1.

Rashi: Even Melachos that are crucial and that cause a loss if not performed, 1 are forbidden. 2

2.

Ramban #1 (on Pasuk 7, citing R. Chananel) and : All Melachos that are not for Ochel Nefesh, 3 and that are for the purpose of acquiring, such as sowing and reaping, digging etc.

3.

Rashbam: A Melachah that entails a lot of bother.


1

Rashi: Davar ha'Aveid (which is permitted on Chol ha'Mo'ed - Sifsei Chachamim [See also Ramban]).

2

See Ramban's objections to this explanation, one of which, based on Chagigah, 18a, is that the Melachos that are forbidden on Chol ha'Moed (Refer to 23:8:1:1*) are not hinted in the Torah but were handed down to the Chachamim to decide what is forbidden and what is permitted.

3

See Ramban, who elaborates.

5)

Why does the Torah group Shabbos, Pesach and Chag ha'Matzos in one Dibur, whereas each of the other Yamim-Tovim is presented separately?

1.

Seforno: Because, as opposed to all the other Yamim-Tovim, all three were given before Matan Torah. 1
