What is the origin of Moshe’s son, Eliezer?
וְשֵׁ֥ם הָאֶחָ֖ד אֱלִיעֶ֑זֶר כִּֽי־אֱלֹהֵ֤י אָבִי֙ בְּעֶזְרִ֔י וַיַּצִּלֵ֖נִי מֵחֶ֥רֶב פַּרְעֹֽה׃
And the other was named Eliezer, meaning, “The God of my father was my help, and He delivered me from the sword of Pharaoh.”
Moshe named his second son “Eliezer/Hashem, my help” in gratitude for Hashem saving his life when Datan and Aviram reported him to the Egyptian authorities when he killed an Egyptian.
Pharaoh sentenced him to death but when the executioner swung his sword, Moshe’s neck became as hard as stone, and he was saved.
(Rashi, Meam Loez)
