I am trying to find Moses’ age when he was standing before the Burning Bush before delivering the Israelites from slavery. Later in Scripture it says he was 80 years when he first spoke to Pharaoh. Does scripture give any idea how old he was before the Burning Bush, or he was also around 80 years old at that time?

Scripture tells us Moses was 40 when the Egyptian struck the slave: Acts 7:22-29
And then...in Acts 7:30
In Exodus 7:7, we see the age at which Moses (and Aaron) when they go to Pharaoh:
So Moses was 40 when he killed the Egyptian, and 80 at both the time of the Burning Bush and the meeting with Pharaoh.
He was about 80
The timeline would look like this:
