10 Then Moses said to the Lord, “O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither before nor since You have spoken to Your servant; but (A)I am slow of speech and [a]slow of tongue.”

11 So the Lord said to him, (B)“Who has made man’s mouth? Or who makes the mute, the deaf, the seeing, or the blind? Have not I, the Lord? 12 Now therefore, go, and I will be (C)with your mouth and teach you what you shall say.”

13 But he said, “O my Lord, (D)please send by the hand of whomever else You may send.”

14 So (E)the anger of the Lord was kindled against Moses, and He said: “Is not Aaron the Levite your (F)brother? I know that he can speak well. And look, (G)he is also coming out to meet you. When he sees you, he will be glad in his heart. 15 Now (H)you shall speak to him and (I)put the words in his mouth. And I will be with your mouth and with his mouth, and (J)I will teach you what you shall do. 16 So he shall be your spokesman to the people. And he himself shall be as a mouth for you, and (K)you shall be to him as God. 17 And you shall take this rod in your hand, with which you shall do the signs.”
