Rashi Studies (Advanced)

Sifrei says that the obligation to bring first-fruits begins immediately upon entering the land. Rashi says that first-fruits are not brought until all of the Jews are settled in their own farms. A spontaneous outpouring of gratitude, or a sign of deep appreciation?
Why does the declaration made upon bringing first-fruits to the Temple include only two events: Lavan's attempt to destroy Ya'akov, and the Egyptian exile?
Rashi chooses the more unlikely translation to take into account that sometimes, the Jewish nation does not make G‑d proud.
Eleven curses: each one of them a warning against the idiosyncrasy of a particular Tribe.
