Detail Description

Mekhilta de-R. Ishmael is an exegetical Midrash which interprets Exodus, by chapter and by verse, and often, the words in a verse. It commences with Exodus 12:1, continues consecutively to Exodus 23:19, and contains expositions on Exodus 31:12–17 and 35:1–3. It is a compilation of expositons, excluding everything connected with the section dealing with the Tabernacle, it also includes the narrative sections, incorporated in the principal part (Ex. 12:1–23:19). These narrative sections, whose verses constitute more than half of those expounded in the Midrash, account for the fact that the aggadic portion of the Mekhilta of R. Ishmael, which is mainly an halakhic Midrash, does not fall short of the halakhic one. Some sections conclude with an epilogue containing a message of consolation to Israel, a promise of their future redemption, or a reference to their mission.
