Hello Onyi,

If the verse doesn't say we don't know.

however, what we do know is in Exodus 6 Moses

told Jehovah God (psalm 83:18) that he was circumcised in lips.

Moses felt that his speech was cut off. you can think of someone with a stuttering

defect. sometimes in old age people voice is choppy or weak. especially some more then others at the age of 100 years old or more.

What the bible does tells us is that Moses was 120 years

old when he died. Deuteronomy 31:2,14; Joshua 1:2

According to Exodus 7:7, Moses was 80 years of age at this time. Therefore, assuming that the ensuing plagues upon Egypt followed each other in quick succession & they left Rameses soon after, then their journey into the wilderness saw them go first to Succoth, then to Etham & onto Baal Zephon (Exodus 14:1). So, I would say that Moses was a little over 80 years of age by a few months. It's interesting that Pharaoh only now chose to pursue them, believing them to be trapped at the Red Sea. Maybe, the death & destruction in Egypt under God's Hand took them quite a while to recover & gather themselves together to go after the children of Israel, as we read that once again God "hardened Pharoah's heart" (Exodus 14:8), which made him foolishly pursue God's chosen.
