And the Lord furthermore said to him, “Now put your hand into your bosom. So he put his hand into his bosom, and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous like snow. Then He said, “Put your hand into your bosom again.” So he put his hand into his bosom again; and when he took it out of his bosom, behold, it was restored like the rest of his flesh. “And it shall come about that if they will not believe you or heed the witness of the first sign, they may believe the witness of the last sign. But is shall be that if they will not believe even these two signs or heed what you say, then you shall take some water from the Nile and pour it on the dry ground; and the water which you take from the Nile will become blood on the dry ground.”
Moses now had his three miracle-weapons intended to destroy both his own doubts, and those of the children of Israel. And with that, Moses’ latest objection (number 3) is refuted. [You will remember, objection number one was, “Who am I to go to Pharaoh?”. Objection two was “What if they ask me your name?”] Has he had enough? That remains to be seen. But let us focus on you and I for a moment? How many ways, and how many times does God need to refute our objections to something He wants us to do? If we each stop long enough to ask ourselves that very question as we read this, then I think that we have gained much from the text.
