Moses returned to YHVH.
He said, "Adonai, why did You wrong this people?
Why did You ever send me?
Since I came to Pharaoh to speak in Your name
it has gotten worse for this people;
You have certainly not delivered Your people!"....
Elohim spoke to Moses;
He said to him, "I am YHVH!"
(Exodus 5:22-23; 6:2)
Rabbi Yose said
If he had not been master of the house, husband of Elohim,
he would have been punished for what he said.
But since he was, he was not punished.
It is like a man who falls into an agrument with his wife
and speaks harshly to her.
She starts to get upset
but as the words begin to fly, the king appears and takes up the
She turns silent and says nothing more.
The king says to him, 'Do you not know that I am King?
It is as if you spoke these words against me!'
Here too, as if it were possible:
'Moses returned to YHVH.
He said, "Adonai, why did You wrong this people?"'
At once 'Elohim spoke to Moses'
She started to get upset.
At once the king took up the word:
'He said to him, "I am YHVH!"'
'Do you not know that I am King?
You have spoken these words against Me!'
