God just commanded Moses to go to Egypt to start his mission. Then God wants to kill him. God could have done it in many occasions but why now when he has just about to start his mission? This verse just doesn’t seem to fit the sequence of events especially if you just read Exodus 4:21-23 where God told him to do this, do this, do that.
Then this verse says God wants to kill him after meeting him at the inn. Did something happened at the inn that move God to kill Moses? The closest thing I can think of is that Moses refused to circumcise when told to and that upset God but his wife Zipporah took the initiative and diffused the situation. Remember this was a reluctant Moses tasked to do this big job and possibly balked at some of the things God wanted him to do.
Anyone can shed some light on this?
