Interpretation Exodus 4:24

Interpretation Exodus 4:24

LAI TB, but in the middle of the road, somewhere to spend the night, the Lord met with Moses and seek to kill him.
KJV, And it Came to pass by the way in the inn, that the LORD met him, and sought to kill him. (And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that the LORD met him, and sought to kill him)
Biblia Hebraic Stuttgartensia (BHS), Hebrew with vowels,
וַיְהִי בַדֶּרֶךְ בַּמָּלֹון וַיִּפְגְּשֵׁהוּ יְהוָה וַיְבַקֵּשׁ הֲמִיתֹו:
Translit Interlinear VAYEHI {and be} {in the} VADEREKH BAMALON {at} VAYIFEGESHEHU {and} He met with the Jehovah {read: 'Adonay, VAYEVAQESH} {Lord and He will set out to kill him} HAMITO {}
No word "Moses" in the original language text in the paragraph above, so there are two interpretations that would kill Moses or his son.
There are two opinions about who will be killed by the Lord that his pronouns in the word kill:
The first opinion says that the Lord was about to kill Moses, a second opinion said that the Lord was about to kill his son Gêresyom. This opinion is based on Genesis 17:14, that uncircumcised that must die:

Interpretation Exodus 4:24



Genesis 17:14
LAI TB, and people who are not circumcised, that men do not cut off the foreskin, that person shall be cut off from his people; he has broken my covenant.
KJV, And the uncircumcised man child Whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant.
Hebrew,
וְעָרֵל זָכָר אֲשֶׁר לֹא-יִמֹּול אֶת-בְּשַׂר עָרְלָתֹו וְנִכְרְתָה הַנֶּפֶשׁ הַהִוא מֵעַמֶּיהָ אֶת-בְּרִיתִי הֵפַר: ס
Translit Interlinear VE'AREL are not cut off {and} Zakhar {laki2} '{that} ASHER LO-YIMOL {he who shall not be circumcised, 3rd Imperfect Verb Niphal Mas. Sing.} 'ET-BIG' AR'LATO VENIKH'RETA {then} shall be cut off from the animate HANEFESH {} HAHIV {he be} of his people ME'AMEIHA {} 'ET-BERITI {covenant} {he had reneged HEFAR }
The second opinion states that Moses forgot a fundamental agreement between the Lord with Israel that is performed, compare with Joshua 5: 3-9. So that was about to be killed was Moses himself. I agree with this opinion. If God will set out to kill the child Moses, perhaps it will write a paragraph "was about to kill his son".
I see the definition of "man" in the above verse is addressed to those responsible for circumcision. Under the terms of the Jews, which is responsible for the circumcision that is yourself (for adults), parents (for children) and employer (to waiter / slave). When the child MMusa still be within the responsibility of Moses and Zipporah, especially Moses. But it is possible also that the punishment for the parents it is given to the child as in the murder of the firstborn in Egypt.
Why would God want to kill Moses? Since Moses fails to perform treaty, which is performed on her own. It is seen as a sign of overt disobedience on the part of Moses and his wife. Apparently, God caused Moses to suffer from diseases that could be dangerous until he circumcise her son. This shows that God's election of a person is only valid for the person obedient.

But, regardless of who is going to be killed, Allah indiscriminately, and special servants to be obedient and also must perform their specific tasks. Moses neglected to circumcise his son and God arose to carry out the terms of their demands.
