Why does the Torah insert here the phrase "Ki Savo't el Eretz Moshvoseichem"?

1.

Rashi: To reassure them that they (K'lal Yisrael) would enter Eretz Yisrael.

2.

Ramban (citing the Sifri): To teach us that the obligation to bring Nesachim together with a Korban Yachid 1 will only take effect once they enter Eretz Yisrael. 2


1

Refer to 15:2:2:2**.

2

According to others in the Sifri, they did not bring a Minchas Nesachim at all in the desert - even together with a Korban Tzibur. Refer to 15:2:2:2** and See Torah Temimah.

2)

And why did Hashem insert the Mitzvah of Minchas Nesachim here?

1.

Ramban: Having promised the children that they would enter Eretz Yisrael, He reassured them that nothing would occur to prevent this from happening by teaching them Mitzvos connected with Eretz Yisrael.

2.

Seforno: Until the sin of the Eigel, they were able to bring Korbanos without a Minchah and Nesachim; 1 From the Eigel and onwards, it became necessary to bring a Korban Nesachim together with the Olas Tamid 2 - which was a Korban Tzibur - for the Korban to attain the level of Re'ach Nicho'ach. And from the sin of the Meraglim and onwards, even a Korban Yachid required a Minchas Nesachim to validate it.


1

Seforno: Like Hevel, No'ach and Avraham, as the Torah writes in Shemos 24:4, in connection with Har Sinai.

2

The Ramban cites the source for the Minchas Nesacim of the Olas Tamid as Shemos 29:40, which is written before the Chet ha'Eigel?
