Patur Aval Assur


A non-Jew does not qualify as Chazal using it. All the more so when the Maharsha points out that that is not what the pasuk was referring to. And my kashya wasn’t that the Rambam didn’t mention it. My kashya was that R’ Schachter said that the Rambam does mention it and I don’t know of anywhere where the Rambam mentions it. To that end I quoted four places where the Rambam discusses the idea of not hurting yourself and he doesn’t mention this pasuk.
