“Please, please, pretty please!” Children who want a toy, a privilege or a treat, offer up a please plea. Teasing their parents might not give them the results for which they hope. Yet, that does not keep them from trying. Moses desperately wanted permission to enter the Promised Land.
“Please let me cross over and see the beautiful land on the other side of the Jordan, that good hill country and Lebanon (Deuteronomy 3:25 HCS).” Permission not granted… “That’s enough! Do not speak to Me again about this matter (Deuteronomy 3:26b).” The matter was closed.
