It has been on my mind all week. Let's dissect it together. Remember the process of Bible study - observe first, then interpret, then apply. Read through it and make some observations and share them with us all. We'll get to interpreting and applying after that.
Some background: Moses killed an Egyptian then ran for his life to the pastureland of Midian. There, he met and married his African wife Zipporah. Eventually, God showed up in a burning bush telling him to head back to Egypt and lead the children of Israel in their exodus. He complains and tries to beg out of it, pissing God off, but finally agrees to go, says goodbye to his father-in-law and heads out. That's where we pick up:
Exodus 4.24-31 (TNIV)
24 At a lodging place on the way, the LORD met Moses and was about to kill him. 25 But Zipporah took a flint knife, cut off her son's foreskin and touched Moses' feet with it. "Surely you are a bridegroom of blood to me," she said. 26 So the LORD let him alone. (At that time she said "bridegroom of blood," referring to circumcision.)
27 The LORD said to Aaron, "Go into the wilderness to meet Moses." So he met Moses at the mountain of God and kissed him. 28 Then Moses told Aaron everything the LORD had sent him to say, and also about all the signs he had commanded him to perform.
29 Moses and Aaron brought together all the elders of the Israelites, 30 and Aaron told them everything the LORD had said to Moses. He also performed the signs before the people, 31 and they believed. And when they heard that the LORD was concerned about them and had seen their misery, they bowed down and worshiped.
