HaShem's anger at Moshe


Shemot 4:14 says that when Moshe refused to lead the Jews, "HaShem displayed anger at Moshe."

"Rabbi Yehoshua ben Karcha said: All mentions of anger in the Torah involve some visible result, but regarding this event no visible result was mentioned.

"Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai said: A visible result was mentioned for this, too. HaShem then said to Moshe, 'Your brother Aharon, the Levite,' but Aharon is a Kohen! HaShem was telling Moshe, 'I said you would be the Kohen and Aharon would be the Levite, but now you will be the Levite and Aharon will be the Kohen.'"

(Talmud, Zevachim 102a)

Have a great day,
