Life of moses
Moses was the son of Jochebed and Amram. He was born in Goshen (lower Egypt) in 1391 BC .Moses grew up very poor. As Moses became an adult he saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew. Moses killed the Egyptian and buried his body in the sand.Moses soon discovered that the affair was known, and that Pharaoh was likely to put him to death for it. Moses then fled from Egypt across the Sinai Peninsula, In Midian he stopped at a well where he protected seven shepherdesses from very bad shepherds.Moses leads the people of Israel out of Egypt and across the Red Sea. Later in life Moses marries Zipporah, a Midianite. Soon after Moses receives the Ten Commandments at Mount Sinai, Moses breaks the stones where the Lord's commandments were written. Moses what told by the lord to wrie the second set of clay tablets and the Lord gives Moses the most important commandment. As a result of Moses not doing what God commanded , the Lord refuses to let Moses enter Canaan. At age 120 Moses realized that death had been wished for him, he drew a small circle around himself, stood in it, and said, “Master of the Universe, I will not budge from here until You void that decree.” God took the life of Moses and said “Let him enter in peace and rest on his couch.” Moses death happened during 1272 BC in Mount Nebo.
Moses is so important to history because he was chosen by God to be the leader of the Jewish people, to lead them out of slavery in Egypt and to give them the Torah. Moses is also remembered for receiving the Ten Commandments from God and giving it to the Hebrew people.
