What exactly, does the Torah mean when it writes "be'Kodesh ha'Kodshim Tochlenu"?

1.

Rashi: It means that Kodshei Kodshim 1 must be eaten in the Azarah 2 exclusively 3 and only by male Kohanim.

2.

Ramban #1 (citing Sifri): If the enemy have surrounded the Azarah, Kodshim may be eaten in the Heichal. 4

3.

Ramban #2: What the Torah means is that, after referring 5 to the above Korbanos as Kodshei Kodshim, they should be eaten with the Kedushah of Kodshei Kodshim 6 (and not with that of Kodshim Kalim), as regards both location 7 and time. 8

4.

Seforno: It means 'within the hangings of the Azarah'.

2

See Ramban's objection to this explanation, and R. Chavel's footnotes - that Rashi actually explains the Pasuk like the Ramban.

3

And not anywhere in Yerushalayim.

4

Ramban: It seems that it is permitted even in the Kodesh ha'Kodshim, if necessary.

5

In the previous Pasuk.

6

Ramban: Since the 'Beis of "be'Kodesh ... " means (not 'in' but) 'as'.

7

In the Azarah (and not anywhere in Yerushalayim).

8

For one day and one night (and not for two days).
