What are the connotations of the words "Kol ha'Mitzvah"?

1.

Rashi #1: It means simply 'all the Mitzvos'. 1

2.

Rashi #2 (citing a Midrash): It implies that someone who begins to perform a Mitzvah should complete it. 2

3.

Ramban: Even though Hashem had commanded Yisrael to observe the Mishpatim, 3 they should take care to observe all the Mitzvos, because it is as a result of keeping all the Mitzvos that they will merit living in the land and to flourish with regard to the fruit of the womb, the fruit of the animals and the fruit of the land.

4.

Seforno: If they observe all the Mitzvos, they will succeed 4 in the three areas towards which people tend to strive - longevity, offspring and livelihood. 5

Rashi: Because a Mitzvah is ascribed to the person who concludes it, like we find in Yehoshua, 24:32, where the Pasuk records how Yisrael buried the bones of Yosef in Sh'chem, in spite of the fact that Moshe was the one to take them out of Egypt and transport them through the desert for forty years.
