    4. RASHI METHOD: ALIGNMENT
    BRIEF EXPLANATION: Aligning two almost identically worded verselets can suggest
    • (4a) 2 cases of the same incident or law
    • (4b) emphasis on the nuances of a case
    • (4c) use of broad vs literal usage of words
    This examples applies to Rashis Lv16-09a
    URL Reference: (c) http://www.Rashiyomi.com/rule1215.htm
    Brief Summary: 1) Bring the goat chosen by the lottery near to God and 2) make it (designate it) as a sin offering.

The table below presents an aligned extract of verses or verselets in Lv16-09, Lv12-06 Both verses/verselets discuss bringing animals for sacrifices. The alignment justifies the Rashi comment that: The normal phraseology is bring this animal for a sin offering. When the verse however changes phraseology and says bring this animal and make it for a sin offering the extra underlined words and make it indicate intentional a required designation - for example by explicitly saying This animal is hereby designated for a sin offering.

Verse Text of Verse Rashi comment
Lv16-09 And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the Lordís lot fell, and make it [designate it] for a sin offering. The normal phraseology is bring this animal for a sin offering. When the verse however changes phraseology and says bring this animal and make it for a sin offering the extra underlined words and make it indicate intentional a required designation - for example by explicitly saying This animal is hereby designated for a sin offering.
Lv12-06 #####

Advanced Rashi: An alternate independent explanation of this Rashi is given below in rule #7, format. We could have additionally explained this Rashi using rule #8, databases: that is, we could have cited numerous verses with the phrase bring it....for a sin offering showing that the added word bring it....and make it for a sin offering indicates a separate procedure - explicit designation.
