4:19 The Lord said unto Moses - This seems to have been a second vision, whereby God calls him to the present execution of the command given before.


Discussion for Exodus 4

  • Jo
    God did not attend to kill Moses, Moses had to circumcise his son Eliezer or God was going to kill his son. It was their custom to circumcise the males. Since Moses had Eliezer by Zippotah, while in Egypt, it wasn't the Egyptians way. The blessings of God flow down the family tree and Abraham, so all males in that family need to be circumcised if not they will be cut off.... Killed.
