INSIGHT: Glimpse into the Future

Out of the Palace

Out of the Palace

Moshe spent his childhood in Paraoh’s palace. Although he was treated like Egyptian royalty and raised as if he were Paraoh’s own son, Moshe knew he was Jewish.
His heart ached for his people, who were being treated so cruelly. Moshe watched with much pain as his brethren slaved away and he longed to find a way to help them.
The years passed on, and one day, when Moshe was 20 years old, he took a walk outside the palace. Suddenly, he came face to face with a shocking sight – an Egyptian slave-driver was severely beating a Jewish slave! Moshe knew that if he did not do something fast, the poor slave would be murdered.
Moshe looked here and there and he saw that there is no man – the coast was clear! Nobody was around and it was time for him to take some drastic action.

Glimpse into the Future

The Torah says that “Moshe looked here and there and he saw that there is no man”.
Our Rabbis tell us that not only did he look in all directions, but also gazed into the future! Moshe saw prophetically through his Ruach HaKodesh (Divine Inspiration), that nothing good would ever come from this wicked Egyptian or his descendants. It was also clear to Moshe that nobody in his family would ever convert to Judaism and become a righteous person.
