והפלה. דבר. יאמר על ענין דברים מחוברים. כמו הדבר אשר דבר ה'. גם יאמר על יש כמו זה וכמוהו לא חסרת דבר: AND THE LORD SHALL MAKE A DIVISION…NOTHING. The word davar (nothing)29Literally, a thing. is used in reference to many words joined together, as in ha-davar (the word)30God spoke many words to Jeremiah. Thus Scripture should have read, ha-devarim, as in eleh ha-devarim (these are the words) (Deut. 1:1). Thus I.E. explains that davar can refer to many words. in The word that the Lord spoke to Jeremiah (Jer. 46:13). It is also used in reference to a thing, as in our verse. Davar in thou hast not lacked a thing is similar (Deut. 2:7).
