Moses and Pharaoh, Good and Bad Speech

Parsha Va'eira

Moses and Pharaoh, Good and Bad Speech : Parsha Va'eira

The Torah tells us (Exodus 7:7) "Moses was 80 years old... when he spoke to Pharaoh." The number 80 is represented in Hebrew by the letter "pei" which hints to the word "peh" meaning "mouth." It was at this age that Moses confronted Pharaoh--the letters of whose name spell "peh rah" or "mouth of evil."
