Sedra Stats

Ki Tisa Stats

21st of 54 sedras;
9th of 11 in Sh’mot
Written on 245.17 lines in a Torah (8th)
14 Parshiot; 10 open, 4 closed
139 p’sukim (10th), 1st in Sh’mot
2002 words (5th), 1st in Shmot
7424 letters (8th), 1st in Sh’mot
Large sedra in general plus relatively long p’sukim, which explains the jump in rank from 10th for p’sukim to 5th for words. Only 4 other sedra have more than 2000 words.

MITZVOT
Contains 9 mitzvot; 4 pos, 5 prohibitions
9 doesn’t seem like very many mitzvot, but only 17 of the other 53 sedras (less than a third) have more mitzvot than Ki Tisa.
