Story: Nabil Odeh – Nazareth…
After Moses succeeded in expelling his people from Egypt, and splitting the sea with the stroke of a stick, he set out in the desert, dragging behind him 600,000 families who were suffering from slavery in Pharaonic Egypt, i.e. approximately, or more than… more than three million people crawling in a desert that extended in length and breadth, and no A specific trend can be distinguished by what man owned at that time, and it seems that God was angry with his people as well, who saved him from Pharaoh and slavery in Egypt, but he debauched and moved away from the teachings of his father, so he left him to wander for forty years as a punishment for his deviation and immorality… God failed Moses The old people knew the way, and the people drowned in the quicksand, they went in several directions, and returned the ball to find themselves spinning in vicious circles, and began to grumble and complain and hold Moses responsible for the torment that exceeded the torment of slavery in Pharaonic Egypt.
They blamed Moses for bringing them out of the servitude of Pharaoh to the deserts in the burning sands of Sinai, without water, without food, without workshops that produce clothes, farms that grow wheat and vegetables, and pastures that produce milk, meat and cheese. And as we say in our popular proverb, he is struck with one hand, and thrown with the other. He sent manna and quail in times of distress, and guided Moses to water wells. But for a great thing that humans do not realize, he did not rush to guide him on the way out from Sinai to the promised land. He had his wisdom and plans, so the deserts continued to be lost, generation after generation… until the infants became men who knew nothing of God’s vast land except the sands of the desert.
In the vicinity of Mount Sinai, and after a prayer and supplication from Moses and the great people, the sky shone, and a great light made the people close their eyes to avoid the force of its radiance. Rebellions and difficulties multiply before Moses, who was entrusted with leadership from heaven, as it is not possible to discuss burning issues about the conditions of the lost in the desert directly in front of them. Sand food. Moses accepted the invitation and went up, leaning on his staff, to meet the Lord.
On the top of the mountain, the Lord did not delay, and did not even give Moses a chance to rest and catch his breath, he immediately initiated a set of restrictions that he must impose on his people if this people wanted to maintain their position with the Lord. Most of the talk was about divine procedures that are not open to discussion, and Moses was given a copy that includes the procedures and restrictions that must be followed. When Moses began reading the details of the procedures and restrictions, his body shook severely and collapsed to the ground, and immediately the Lord’s ambulance moved in a quick recovery process to improve his condition so that he could continue his mission.
Forgiveness, then forgiveness.. I know my people – your people, and their experience of the loss that you have cast upon us. It was a punishment that will not be erased from memory, we will preserve it for ever and ever, and make for it a week of every year, in which we do not bring yeast to our food. Punishing you and giving your forgiveness. As for these restrictions that you propose, they are more difficult than getting lost in Sinai, and I strongly suggest, in the interest of everyone, to reduce them and call them commandments, provided that they do not exceed the five commandments, so that your people act according to their texts. But it is necessary to reduce the restrictions, for their abundance is a cause for rebellion and disobedience, as we seek reform and reform.
The Lord initially insisted that the restrictions be more severe and broader. These are the ways of the Lord that men do not understand, and he did not object to the proposal to call them commandments. But five is less than a little. Moses repeated his fervent hope begging God to lower the restrictions, because their large number makes them useless and difficult to memorize, tempting rebellion, distancing, and disobedience, and thus God will lose His people. Moses accompanied his hope to a crying fit that shook his body, so the Lord’s ambulance prepared for a new round of resuscitation. But God’s will was to make Moses continue to lead to the gates of Canaan.
Negotiations between Moses and the Lord of Israel were very difficult and lasted the whole day, and there were no mediators to soften the position of either side. But Moses’ great experience in negotiating with Pharaoh benefited him in this predicament, insisting in a way that made the alternate angel wonder how the Lord chose Moses as a delegate for his people, while he dared to discuss the Lord and insist on his position? But the Lord shut him up in a terrible blink of an eye, so he kept the final silence.
After the day was almost passing and Moses did not stop insisting, begging and crying, and his condition worsened and then improved, forcing the heavenly ambulance to intervene twice. around.
His wisdom came down to respond to the prophet of his people to raise his position and his rank among his people. Thus, Moses descended from the mountain while embracing two tablets of stone known later as the Ten Commandments.
The crowds were eagerly waiting to hear what Moses had accomplished for them. And even started some betting among some of the crowd. The tribes differed before they heard the results of the agreement. The leaders of God’s people, with their various parties and sects, used to cover up, and they were all afraid that God would restrict their people with what they could not handle. What they were accustomed to, especially in their long lost in the desert, is not easy to change. The promised land.
Moses was descending at a leisurely pace, slow-moving due to his generation and the rugged mountain road, and his obvious fatigue from the difficult negotiations with the Lord of Israel, who became the Lord of all mankind, and his physical collapse that would have cost him his life several times had it not been for the quick help of the Lord and the will of God in His Highness, and also from His heavy load, as he was embracing the heavy stone slabs, and refusing to give them to anyone to carry them and relieve him of their weight.
When he came to where his people gathered, he climbed a little sandy hill, and said without preamble:
Sons of God, you are blessed in the name of the Lord until the Day of Resurrection, after long and painstaking negotiations, I reached the best possible for you. Reaching an agreement was not easy. Therefore, I tell you that I brought you two news, the first is good news and the second is bad news. As for the good news, it is that I was able to abolish a lot of restrictions, and to bring down the commandments from many dozens to only ten commandments. As for the bad news, and here Moses remained silent and looked at the audience, feeling his great tension, then said:
The bad news is that God’s commandments still include the prohibition of immorality.
