We read in Ex 4: 19-24:
Now the Lord had said to Moses in Midian, “Go back to Egypt, for all those who wanted to kill you are dead.” So Moses took his wife and sons, put them on a donkey and started back to Egypt. And he took the staff of God in his hand......... At a lodging place on the way, the Lord met Moses and was about to kill him.
One is intrigued by the mention of the Lord wanting to `kill' Moses in Verse 24. There is nothing to show that Moses had earned the wrath of God by disobedience or otherwise. Could it be an error of translation?
My question therefore, is: Why did the Lord want to kill Moses on the latter's way back to Egypt?
