The merit of Abraham brought us the Torah


"At that moment [when Moshe sought to receive the Torah for humanity], the ministering angels tried to harm Moshe. Gd transformed Moshe’s face to resemble Avraham’s face. Gd said to them: Are you not ashamed before him? Isn’t this the one to whom you descended, and in whose home you ate?

"Gd then said to Moshe: The Torah was given to you only in the merit of Avraham. Thus it is written..."

(Midrash, Sh'mot Rabbah 28:1)

Have a great day,
