Why does the Torah add the word "Chayim"?


Ramban #1 (citing the Ibn Ezra): To clarify that it was the Voice of Hashem that they heard and not that of an angel, who is sometimes referred to as 'Elohim'. 1


Ramban #2: Because someone who hears the Voice of Hashem - Who is the source of life - clings to the source and no longer lives a regular physical life. 2


Ramban: But who does not move independently. See also R. Chavel's footnotes.


But rises to a more elevated lifestyle.
