At a lodging place on the way, the Lord met him and sought to kill him. Then Zipporah [his wife] took a flint and cut off her son's foreskin, and touched Moses' feet with it and said, "Surely you are a bridegroom to me." So he let him alone. Then it was that she said, "You are a bridegroom of blood, because of the circumcision." There is a question of pronouns here. Some say that Moses must have been already circumcised and all the pronouns refer to his son, making even "Moses' feet" "his" (the son's). Others say that Yahweh was trying to kill Moses because he had still not attended to his own circumcision. That is, lacking a proper scientific hypothesis, they make of Yahweh's action something arbitrary. The Editors of the Oxford Bible become avant-garde and write in a footnote: "Feet, a euphemism for the sexual organs (Is. 7: 20)." Isaiah does support this interpretation, speaking there of a razor shaving the head and "the hair of the feet." I would agree with this view. In Egypt some Obelisk were called the Ben Ben stone. Its hiergyphic symbol was two feet and a pyramid. It has links with Osiris. The Obelisk was the symbolic penis of Osiris. The Ben Ben stone was also an altar to which victims were sacrificed like Moses almost became a victim of see Cleopatra’s Needles: And other Egyptian Obelisks By E.A. Wallis Budge pp.9-11. Philo Judaeus wrote of his intellectual precocity . A composite portrait can be drawn from the Pagan writers of Greece and Rome Moses was an Egyptian who invented sun dials for solar worship in place of obelisks. Moses no longer would use Obelisk or let his fellow Egyptians represent him as Osiris (Golden Calf) either. Why? Because he switched from Amen to Aton.
