Considering that the specifications of Nezirus are not drinking wine, not becoming Tamei Mes and letting one's hair grow long, what is the Torah saying here?


Ramban #1: What the Torah is saying here is 'This (the above) is the law of the Nazir who takes the Nazarite vow - his Korban for Hashem falls due, besides whatever he obligates himself to bring'.


Ramban #2: What the Torah means is 'This (the above) is the law of the Nazir and this is the law of his Korban to Hashem that goes with his Nezirus ... '.


Ramban #3: The Torah is saying that, once the Nazir takes the Nazarite vow, all he needs to add, is that he undertakes to bring a Korban on his Nezirus (without specifying it); or that, once he undertakes to become a Nazir, his Korban falls due automatically, and it is not necessary to mention it at all.


What are the implications of the phrase "Mil'vad asher Tasig Yado"?


Rashi: It implies that if a Nazir undertakes to become a Nazir on a hundred Olos and a hundred Shelamim, the Neder is valid and that is what he is obligated to do, as the Pasuk goes on to explain.


Ramban #2: It implies that if the Nazir is wealthy, he should bring additional Korbanos.


Ramban #3 and Rashbam: It means that, if the Nazir made a Neder to bring extra Korbanos, then he is obligated to bring them 1 over and above the specified ones. 2


Rashbam: Like the Pasuk says in Vayikra 23:38 "Mil'vad Kol Nidreichem u'Mil'vad Kol Nidvoseichem ... ".


Ramban: And he is not permitted to drink wine until he has brought them all.


What are the ramifications of the words "Al Toras Nidro"?


Rashi and Ramban: Although the Nazir is permitted to add to the basic requirements of a Korban Nazir, he is not allowed to detract from them. Consequently, if he undertakes five Neziros on condition that he brings three sets of Korbanos, "Ka'asher Yidor kein Ya'aseh" does not apply to him, and he is obligated to bring five sets of Korbanos.
