Why did Hashem say "Heromu", and not "Hibadlu" as He did earlier (16:21)?
Rashbam: "Heromu" implies further away than "Hibadlu"
Why here, and above (Ibid.) did Hashem instruct the people to leave the vicinity of the sinners? Why could He not simply shield them
Ramban: Because Hashem's anger was vent against the people, to kill them all because they were beginning to join forces with them. 1
And why did Moshe and Aharon fall on their faces but did not Daven, as he did there?
