In Parshas Tzav, the Pasuk, וידבר ה׳ אל משה לאמר: is repeated many times… sometimes only a few sentences apart. We know that not one extra letter is written in the Torah. The question is why is this phrase repeated so many times?

    This verse shows up all over the Torah. Is it particularly more common here?

    Welcome to Mi Yodeya Menachem! Out of all the פרשיות השבוע, Tzav does have six instances of this pasuk which ties it for second-most in the Torah with Naso (a very long parsha). You might also ask the same for Emor which has eleven instances and is only roughly 25% longer than Tzav. Of general interest to me is why some sections of the Chumash begin with ויאמר and some begin with וידבר.

  • To teach that it was a separate, self-contained statement.
