Parashat D'varim - By G-d's Word

concerning Moshe and King Og of Bashan. We saw above that Hashem told Moshe not to fear King Og, as the Torah tells us in Bamidbar 21,34. Moshe himself said as much in his parting speech in D’varim 3 – right after he told them that they must not be frightened in their war to conquer Eretz Yisrael. How can it be that Moshe tells them not to fear, yet reminds them that he himself felt fear before the King of Bashan? And why does Hashem not rebuke Moshe for this fear, just like Moshe reprimanded Israel for the same?
