btw, my word verification was "moses"...no kidding.
I would say that this must have been a sign!
Remember how Psalm 106:23 says that Moses "stood in the breach before the Lord"?
It's referring to Exodus 32 - 33 where Moses stands in the broken place between God and Man -- and refuses to accept God's threat to destroy the calf-worshipping Israelites -- and also refuses to be saved himself, without them being saved too.
And most surprising of all: God is not annoyed with Moses ("The Lord spoke with Moses face to face, as with a friend" Ex. 33:11). In fact God gives Moses what he wants.
Or to put it another way: Moses was doing and saying exactly what God wanted -- what God wants of all his servants -- working and praying for the salvation of all!
