When we look at these two verses describing the roles of Moshe and Aharon, a difficulty arises: They emphasize the wrong roles for each! Regarding Aharon, we know that because of his speaking skills, he was to be the spokesman towards both Israel and Pharaoh. G-d had told Moshe that Aharon “will serve as your mouth, and you will be his leader” (Sh’mot 4,16). On the other hand, the mission of the Master of Prophets, Moshe Rabbeinu, was to prophetically hear G-d’s message and transmit it to Aharon.
