Seeing as the current Pesukim are discussing a B'chor, why does the Torah insert the word "B'chor" by Shor, Kesev and Eiz?
Bechoros, 5b: To each us that the B'chor must reemble its mother and not a different species. 1
See also Torah Temimah, note 63.
Why does the Torah insert the word "B'chor" both by Shor, by Kesev and by Eiz?
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.
What is "Ach" coming to preclude?
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.
What are the implications of "Lo Sifdeh" with regard to the B'chor of a Tahor animal?
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.
What are the implications of "Kodesh Heim"?
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
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
What are the implications of "es Damam Tizrok"?
Rashi (in Zevachim, 37a): 'Zerikah' implies from a distance, direct from the bowl. 1
As we already learned in Vayikra.
How many times does the Kohen sprinkle?
Whereabouts on the Mizbe'ach does the Kohen sprinkle?
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
See Torah Temimah, note 75.
Seeing as the Torah is discussing B'chor, why does the Torah write "Damam" and "Chelbam" (plural)?
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
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?
