Make a Dedication
July 2, 2018
Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
Why does a new paragraph start in the middle of the verse?
וַיְהִ֖י אַחֲרֵ֣י הַמַּגֵּפָ֑ה (פ) וַיֹּ֤אמֶר ה֙ אֶל־מֹשֶׁ֔ה וְאֶ֧ל אֶלְעָזָ֛ר בֶּן־אַהֲרֹ֥ן הַכֹּהֵ֖ן לֵאמֹֽר׃
When the plague was over, the LORD said to Moses and to Eleazar son of Aaron the priest.
In this verse, we see one of the few appearances in the Torah of a “Piskah Beemtza Pasuk”, meaning, a new paragraph starting in the middle of a verse.
We learn from here that the deaths up until this point were part of the decree on that generation that they wouldn't enter the Land.
From this point onward those who were alive would enter Eretz Israel.
