Respectfully, this answer could be greatly improved if formatted and phrased more succinctly.

Or HaHayim HaQadosh on the verse also brings down the Tanhhuma you cite (specifically 48:8).

IMHO RaSh"I does address this as @user6591 points out in his answer.

comment Are you yotzei yedei chovah if you forgot to bow during shemoneh esrei?
@DoubleAA I wrote "spelling", because I'm tired. I've never tried to edit an edit summary, so I'm not sure if it's possible. Also, I've never seen "מידי", so I was trying to give Ani Yodea the benefit of the doubt in my last comment. If "מידי" is indeed correct, I'll gladly revert my edit.

comment Are you yotzei yedei chovah if you forgot to bow during shemoneh esrei?
@DoubleAA Perhaps it's grammatically correct to say "יוצא מידי חובה" in Hebrew; but, the phrase I'm most familiar with is "יוצא ידי חובה". I attempted to transliterate "ידי" according to what I thought is Ani Yodea's shittah.

@GershonGold Why don't you post the Netiv Yashar's commentary as an answer? It's beautiful.

This is a tough one. Neither RaSh"I, RaMBa"N, Ibn 'Ezra, Or HaHayim, Sifte'i Hakhamim, MaLBI"M, Abarbanel, Sforno, RaDa"Q, RaShBa"M, The Rebbe's Sichos, Tarqum Onqelos, Tarqum Yonathan, Midrash Rabbah, Midrash Tanhhuma, Yalqut Shim'oni, The Zohar HaQadosh nor the Talmud Bavli make any comment whatsoever.

comment What is Maris Ayin?
IMHO this answer could be improved by adding the Mishnah Berurah 301:45 (S.Q. 165) in the name of Ba'ale'i HaTosafot and Rabbe'inu Asher (HaR"Ash).

comment What does a Sephardic library consist of?
It should be noted that far fewer books of Sepharadi origin have been translated into English. Break your teeth on some Hebrew text. You'll thank me for it. Finally, GOOD LUCK!

@Re'eh Are you interested in Halakhah LeMa'aseh (e.g. "What does Rav X say in case Y?") or in digging deep into the works of Sepharadi poseqim for Limmud Be'Iyun? There are two predominant shittot in the Sepharadi world today: Hakham 'Ovadiah A"H and Hakham Mordekha'i Eliyahu A"H. That's why I ask.
