ופרעה הקריב. מחנהו. כי הקריב בכל המקרא פועל י וצ א: AND WHEN PHARAOH DREW NEAR. When Pharaoh caused his camp to draw near.40In other words, u-faroh hikriv (and Pharaoh drew near) means: and when Pharaoh caused to draw near, i.e., when Pharaoh caused his army to draw near. The verb hikriv (drew near) is always transitive in Scripture.41Hence it means to cause to draw near rather than drew near.
