how God saved Moses from the execution attempts
and the name of the other was Eliezer:
'for the G-d of my father was my help,
and saved me from the sword of Pharaoh.'
The underlined words
saved me from the sword of Pharaoh'
echo a reference to the verse where it shows
that Pharoh wanted to kill Moses. Verse
And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown up, that he went out unto his brethren, and looked on their burdens; and he saw an Egyptian smiting a Hebrew, one of his brethren.
And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he smote the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.
And he went out the second day, and, behold, two men of the Hebrews were striving together; and he said to him that did the wrong: 'Wherefore smitest thou thy fellow?'
And he said: 'Who made thee a ruler and a judge over us? thinkest thou to kill me, as thou didst kill the Egyptian?' And Moses feared, and said: 'Surely the thing is known.'
Now when Pharaoh heard this thing,
he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of Midian; and he sat down by a well.
Sermonic points: Although this
story is well known perhaps there is a sermonic point
that Moses did not remember that Jews wanted to kill
him. Instead he remembered that Pharoh wanted to kill
him. Here, at an early stage we see Moses as savior of
the Jewish people. Moses blamed Egypt and what had
happend, not the Jews themselves.
