The text provides evidence of a determined, self-willed sequence of actions that upset the whole divine enterprise.   As F. B. Meyer observed (Moses [Christian Literature Crusade], p. ), “And when we have reached the end of self, we have got to the beginning of God.” Moses’ staff (v. 5) was the symbol of God’s power. It was the same staff with which he had struck the Nile and divided the Red Sea.

Do you think it is significant that God now tells Moses to speak to the rock rather than strike the rock? (It more closely parallels the power of God shown in the Creation. No physical act is required, only a verbal command. A new level of power is given to Moses.) Why does Moses need to take his staff (Numbers ) if he only needs to speak?

    Moses was known as a friend of God and spent much time in the presence of God. The life of Moses is found in Exodus, Numbers, Deuteronomy and one other book. Moses BC- BC, Red Sea , Tabernacle Which two books of the Torah are missing: Exodus, Numbers, Deuteronomy.
