Rabbi Shaffer and I were sitting in her office the other day, and she brought up an interesting point. The priest says “Don’t be afraid, we will defeat our enemies for G-d is on our side.” Then (s)he says “If you are afraid, go home.” We thought this might be a little bit cheating, because the army has just had a pep talk and are thinking something like “We are mighty!!!” Later, they may be more scared and likely to leave. So, is Moses/G-d/the priest cheating? I’ll leave that up to you. Comment with your answer!
