Why does the Torah repeat the K'lal of all Matnos Kehunah (See also Pasuk 8)?

1.

Rashi: Because the Parshah of Matnos Kehunah is dear to Hashem, He begins it with a K'lal and ends it with a K'lal, placing the P'rat (the details) in the middle.

2.

Seforno: "Kol T'rumos ha'Kodashim" actually comes to include what the owner separates from the Lachmei Todah, 1 the Sh'tei ha'Lechem and Chalah.

What is the significance of "B'ris Melach ... "?

1.

Rashi #1: Hashem made a covenant with Aharon, on something that is healthy and that lasts, and that makes other food 'healthy'.

2.

Rashi #2: It means that, like the covenant that Hashem made with salt - it never goes bad.

3.

Rashi #3 (in Chulin, 133b) and Targum Yonasan: It means that like the covenant with salt, the covenant with Aharon will never cease. 1

4.

Rashbam: It means a covenant that lasts for all generations.
