Exodus 7:7: “Moses was 80 years old and Aaron 83 when they spoke to Pharaoh [the first time].” Woah! Moses confronted Pharoah, endured the plagues, led the Israelites across the red sea and through the desert, all after he was 80 years old! That’s not quite how Prince of Egypt depicted things. And this was very post-Flood, so man’s days were (roughly) “numbered at 120” as they are now. The old and young should not underestimate the ability of the… well, elderly when they are submitted to God’s will.
