Exodus 4:10-11
2 ב
י וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה אֶל-יְהוָה, בִּי אֲדֹנָי, לֹא אִישׁ דְּבָרִים אָנֹכִי גַּם מִתְּמוֹל גַּם מִשִּׁלְשֹׁם, גַּם מֵאָז דַּבֶּרְךָ אֶל-עַבְדֶּךָ: כִּי כְבַד-פֶּה וּכְבַד לָשׁוֹן, אָנֹכִי. יא וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֵלָיו, מִי שָׂם פֶּה לָאָדָם, אוֹ מִי-יָשׂוּם אִלֵּם, אוֹ חֵרֵשׁ אוֹ פִקֵּחַ אוֹ עִוֵּר--הֲלֹא אָנֹכִי, יְהוָה.
10 But Moses said to Adonai, "Please, O Lord, I have never been a man of words, either in times past or now that You have spoken to Your servant. I am slow of speech and I am slow of tongue." 11 And Adonai said to him, "Who gives man speech? Who makes him dumb or deaf, seeing or blind? Is it not I, Adonai?"

Suggested Discussion Questions:

1. Why would God choose someone who had difficulty speaking to lead the Nation of Israel?

2. How do these verses relate to the concept of Btzelem Elokim (human beings being created in the image of God)?
