Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
What was Moshe’s mistake when hitting the rock?
וַיָּ֨רֶם מֹשֶׁ֜ה אֶת־יָד֗וֹ וַיַּ֧ךְ אֶת־הַסֶּ֛לַע בְּמַטֵּ֖הוּ פַּעֲמָ֑יִם וַיֵּצְאוּ֙ מַ֣יִם רַבִּ֔ים וַתֵּ֥שְׁתְּ הָעֵדָ֖ה וּבְעִירָֽם׃
And Moses raised his hand and struck the rock twice with his rod. Out came copious water, and the community and their beasts drank.
On one side of Moshe’s staff was inscribed the Name which had the power to dry water and had been used to split the Red Sea.
On the other side of the staff was inscribed the Name which had the power to bring forth water.
But in his anger against the Jews for rebelling, Moshe mistakenly first hit the rock with the wrong side.
(Yalkut Reuveni, Kli Yakar)
