Why does the Torah here mention "Te'einah" before "Gefen", and reverse the order in Devarim 8:5?


Ba'al ha'Turim: In fact, the Torah always gives Gefen precedence, 1 and it is only here that the Torah gives Te'einah precedence, because it follows the Parshah of Parah Adumah, where they used fig-tree wood to burn it. 2


Ba'al ha'Turim: See Michah, 4:4.


Ba'al ha'Turim: As the Mishnah states in Tamid, 2:5. See also Parah, 3:8.
