  1. He’s asking that the same way we don’t have a Mizbeach to go around with the Aravos so too by the Mitzva of Lulav we arn’t Lifnei Hashem..

    So Rav Yitzchok is answering that Lamdan, that in Lulav the verse “Lifnei Hashem” isn’t part of the act, nor part of the objects involved in the Mitzva, it’s just a condition to where it becomes a Mitzva D’oiraisa

  2. The ra’ayah that lifnei Hashem is not part of the ma’aseh mitzva is because on the first day, there is a mitzva even outside of the Mikdash. So we see that the shem netilas lulav is shayach even when not lifnei Hashem, as long as the lulav is nital.
