Seeing as the current Pesukim are discussing a B'chor, why does the Torah insert the word "B'chor" by Shor, Kesev and Eiz?

1.

Bechoros, 5b: To each us that the B'chor must reemble its mother and not a different species. 1


1

See also Torah Temimah, note 63.

2)

Why does the Torah insert the word "B'chor" both by Shor, by Kesev and by Eiz?

1.

Bechoros, 5b: To each us that the Din of burning the Emurin of a B'chor 1 applies to all three - since we would otherwise have thought that it is confined ... to a calf - due to the large size of its Nesech; 2 ... to a lamb - due to its large fat-tail, and to a kid-goat - because it is brought by a Yachid for the sin of Avodah Zarah.


1

Mentioned later in the Pasuk.

See Torah Temimah, note 65.

3)

What is "Ach" coming to preclude?

1.

Bechoros, 5b: It precludes a firstborn that partially resembles another species but also resembles its mother in part from the previou Halachah - and it has the Din of a B'chor.

4)

What are the implications of "Lo Sifdeh" with regard to the B'chor of a Tahor animal?

1.

Rashi (in Yoma, 51a): The B'chor of a Tahor animal is holy from birth, and may not be redeemed - even if it is a Ba'al-Mum.

5)

What are the implications of "Kodesh Heim"?

1.

Zevachim, 37b: It precludes Temuras B'chor and Ma'aser 1 from being brought on the Mizbe'ach - and they are Shechted when they obtain a blemish and eaten by the owners. 2

2.

Temurah, 5b: It precludes B'chor and Ma'aser from the Din of Pidyon (Kodesh Heim" - be'Havayasan Y'hu') - like other Kodshim that obtain a blemish. 3

3.

Temurah, 5b: They (B'chor and Ma'aser) are Kodesh. Consequently, if it becomes mixed with the blood of other Korbanos it is sprinkled together with it on the Mizbe'ach. 4


1

See Torah Temimah, note 67. Refer also to 18:17:5:1.

2

Zevachiom (Ibid.): And the same Din applies to their babies and the babies of their babies.

3

See Torah Temimah, note 68.

4

See Torah Temiaah, note 69.

6)

What are the implications of "es Damam Tizrok"?

1.

Rashi (in Zevachim, 37a): 'Zerikah' implies from a distance, direct from the bowl. 1


1

As we already learned in Vayikra.

7)

How many times does the Kohen sprinkle?

1.

Sifra: He sprinkles only once. 1


1

See Sifra, para. 80.

8)

Whereabouts on the Mizbe'ach does the Kohen sprinkle?

1.

Pesachim, 64b: We learfn from a Gezeirah Shavah ""Tizrok" "ve'Zarku B'nei Ahatron es ha'Dam al ha'Mizbe'ach Saviv) that he must sprinkle the blood on a section of the MIzbe'ach that has a Y'sod. 1


1

See Torah Temimah, note 75.

9)

Seeing as the Torah is discussing B'chor, why does the Torah write "Damam" and "Chelbam" (plural)?

1.

Pesachim, 64b: To incorporate the blood of Pesach and Ma'aser in the Din of Zerikah and their Cheilev to go on the Mizbe'ach. 1


1

See Torah Temimah, note 73. The Gemara in Zevachim, 37a learns this from the Pasuk in Re'ei "ve'Dam Zevachecha (plural) Yishafech" (Devarim, 12:27). See Torah Temimah, who discusses the Machlokes.

10)

How will we reconcile the current Pesukim, implying that one only sprinkles the blood if , Cheilev is available to be burnt on the Mizbe'ach and Basar to be eaten the Cheilev is available to be burnt on the Mizbe'ach and Basar to be eaten, with the Pasuk in Acharei-Mos, 17:6 which implies that one only requires Cheilev to go on the Mizbe'ach?

1.

Yerushalmi Pesachim, 7:5: We conclude that, in order to sprinkle the blood of a Korban, one of the two must be available, either Cheilev to be burnt on the Mizbe'ach or Basar to be eaten. 1
