Devarim Question 2

Yechiel Shaffer

When we first meet Moshe he tells God:

שמות פרשת שמות פרק ד

י) ויאמר משה אל־יקוק בי אדני לא איש דברים אנכי גם מתמול גם משלשם גם מאז דברך אל־עבדך כי כבד־פה וכבד לשון אנכי

10. Moses said to the Lord, “I beseech You, O Lord. I am not a man of words, neither from yesterday nor from the day before yesterday, nor from the time You have spoken to Your servant, for I am heavy of mouth and heavy of tongue.”

Yet this week we begin studying the book of Devarim the opens with the following words:

דברים פרשת דברים פרק א

א) אלה הדברים אשר דבר משה אל־כל־ישראל

1. These are the words which Moses spoke to all Israel

What transformation has Moshe gone through in all these years?

What does it mean to be a man of words and what responsibility does that title hold?

Moshe, famous for his humility, is someone who can speak and command millions of people – how does his humility transform through his experience leading the Jews through the desert?
