Verse Dt28-68 discussing the helpless plight of the Jews in
exiled lands states
And the Lord shall bring you into Egypt again ...
and there you shall fawn slave appearance to to your enemies
but no man shall buy you [because they will prefer
to murder you].
The Rashi comment on the verse text no man shall buy you
is Because they will prefer to kill you. This Rashi comment
is not textual but logical; Rashi is explaining how it happens
that no one wants to buy you; because they wish to kill you instead.
Because Rashi's comment supplements the verse meaning with real world
facts we classify this Rashi comment as exemplifying the non verse method.
This verse is analyzed in 3,5 and 9.
- In rule 3 we explain that the root Mem-Caph-Resh means to fawn appearance.
- In rule 5 we further support this translation of the root Mem-Caph-Resh
by showing that this root couldn't mean to sell
or to attempt to sell because it states explicitly no one will by you.
- In rule 9 we explain why no one buys you: because your
enemies prefer to kill you.
