Sexy Bible Quotes Inspired by Some Birds my Friend saw Fucking Outside her House ao3tagoftheday oxymoronicromantic ao3tagoftheday Image Description Tags reading “sexy bible quotes inspired by some birds my friend saw fucking outside her house” The AO3 Tag of the Day is This is one hell of a non-sequitor “On the day when the Lord spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt 29 the Lord said to Moses “I am the Lord tell Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I say to you” 30 But Moses said to the Lord “Behold I am of uncircumcised lips How will Pharaoh listen to me?” 7 And the Lord said to Moses “See I have made you like God to Pharaoh and your brother Aaron shall be your prophet 2 You shall speak all that I command you and your brother Aaron shall tell Pharaoh to let the people of Israel go out of his land” …I don’t think it’s telling anyone that they’re doing activism wrong???? Anyways Song of Songs is sexier Ok! First off thanks for putting the verses in that makes my life easier! Second Song of Songs is undoubtedly sexy but the phrase “uncircumcised lips” is much sexier Here’s why“Uncircumcised lips” is a literal translation of the Hebrew and scholars have spent millennia trying to figure out what the fuck it means Because like it’s a weird fucking phrase let’s be real Actually let’s all take a moment to imagine what that might physically look like We deserve itAnyway back on topic Most scholars have ended up interpreting it as saying that Moses has some kind of speech impediment But that’s really a stretch I mean if that’s what was meant why not say “a man of broken speech” or something like that? No I think the meaning of that phrase is a lot simplerCircumcision is the sign of the Jewish covenant with G-d In this period of the Bible after G-d and Abraham made the covenant but before the Law was given at Mt Sinai circumcision was the single defining thing that set the Jewish people apart from everyone else So what does it mean to have uncircumcised lips? I submit that to speak with uncircumcised lips is to speak with a non-Jewish voiceBut Moses is Jewish! Why would his voice not be? Because Moses is unique among the Jewish people He wasn’t raised as a slave That’s what the Jewish people are in this period and have been for hundreds of years They’re slaves For generations that slavery has defined and warped their culture Moses has never been a slave and has never lived among his people who are He may be Jewish but his understanding of his people and therefore his ability to speak for them is non-existentSo G-d tells Moses to speak to Pharoah on behalf of the Jewish people and Moses says no How will he speak for his people advocate for them demand their freedom when he can’t speak with their voice? He can’t do it and he tells G-d no No I won’t speak for the slaves when I am free It’s not my placeSo what does G-d say? He says Moses is right He tells Moses to give G-d’s message to Aaron a man who has been a slave all his life and let Aaron go to Pharoah and speak for the Jewish people Because Aaron is of them understands them their pain their oppression in a way that Moses a free man can’t and never will Aaron speaks with a truly Jewish voice with circumcised lips so he must be the one who speaks for the Jewish peopleSo basically G-d tells Moses to speak over an oppressed group he isn’t a part of Moses says “no that’s bad activism” and G-d says “you’re right oppressed people should speak and direct their own fight against oppression”In conclusion sure the Song of Songs is sexy but have you ever tried telling G-d that he needs to work harder to prioritize marginalized voices?
