Bible: Exodus 4:10-17

4:10 Then Moses said to the Lord, 1  “O 2  my Lord, 3  I am not an eloquent man, 4  neither in the past 5  nor since you have spoken to your servant, for I am slow of speech and slow of tongue.” 6 

4:11 The Lord said to him, “Who gave 7  a mouth to man, or who makes a person mute or deaf or seeing or blind? Is it not I, the Lord? 8  4:12 So now go, and I will be with your mouth 9  and will teach you 10  what you must say.” 11 

4:13 But Moses said, 12 O 13  my Lord, please send anyone else whom you wish to send! 14 

4:14 Then the Lord became angry with 15  Moses, and he said, “What about 16  your brother Aaron the Levite? 17  I know that he can speak very well. 18  Moreover, he is coming 19  to meet you, and when he sees you he will be glad in his heart. 20 

4:15So you are to speak to him and put the words in his mouth. And as for me, I will be with your mouth 21  and with his mouth, 22  and I will teach you both 23  what you must do. 24  4:16 He 25  will speak for you to the people, and it will be as if 26  he 27  were your mouth 28  and as if you were his God. 29  4:17 You will also take in your hand this staff, with which you will do the signs.” 30
