Why does the Torah insert "Vesamtem ... " here after the punishment of Galus?


Rashi and Ramban 1 : It is a command to wear Tefilin and affix Mezuzos even after they are in Galus, so that the Mitzvos will not be new (and unfamiliar) when they return. 2


See R; Chavel's notes DH Sod Amuk.


Rashi: As the Pasuk writes in Yirmiyah, 31:20. Ramban (citing the Sifri): And this Pasuk comes to teach us the obligation to keep the Mitzvos that are not connected with the land even when we are in Galus.


What is the difference between "Al Levavchem" and "Al Nafsh'chem"?


Seforno: "Al Levavchem" means 'Reflect on them', and "Al Nafsh'chem", 'Perform them with goodwill'.
