What is the Torah referring to when it says "u'Venei Yisrael Asu ka'asher Tzivah Hashem es Moshe"?

1.

Rashi (from Toras Kohanim) and Targum Yonasan: The Torah is referring to the Mitzvos concerning Sekilah mentioned elsewhere - pushing the culprit down from a high place, stoning him and hanging him 1 (Ramban, Moshav Zekenim and Targum Yonasan 2 - and leaning their hands on him, which was commanded in verse 14).

2.

Ramban (citing Ibn Ezra): It means that, from now on, Yisrael carried out the laws mentioned in the current Pesukim. 3

3.

Ramban #1, Moshav Zekenim #1: It means simply that Yisrael carried out the stoning just as Hashem had commanded Moshe. 4

4.

Ramban,#2, Moshav Zekenim #2 and Seforno: To teach us that they stoned him (not out of hatred, but) in order to fulfill Hashem's command.


1

Ramban: Not leaving his corpse hanging on the tree after sunset, and burying him (Targum Yonasan).

2

Targum Yonasan also adds burying him.

3

See Ramban's objection to this explanation. 12:28 and Bamidbar 1:54.

4

Ramban: As the Torah often does in connection with commands that Hashem commanded Moshe - See for example Shemos 12:28 and Bamidbar, 1:54.
