In Exodus 4:24-26, we read that God was going to kill Moses, but why? The passage is cryptic, but scholars suggest that perhaps Moses failed to circumcise his son as a sign of being in covenant with God. Whatever the reason, it’s clear that God takes his covenant seriously and expects his followers to do the same.
