7. Moses was fourscore years old and Aaron was fourscore and three years old when they talked to Pharaoh. So Aaron must have been at least 75 years old.
Moses was born on March 29, 5 B.C., and he died on October 28, 1866, so he would have been 115 years old when he died. His brother Aaron died at 125 years of age, so they both lived for 90 more years after leaving Egypt behind them. That's a long time to live in those days!
They told Pharaoh they were 80 years old, which means they had left Egypt 20 years earlier. So Aaron must have left Egypt when he was 35 years old and Moses when he was 45; they were the same age anyway.
Pharaoh said they could not be given back their land because they were dead. But God spoke to Moses and said to him, "I am who I am. And by my authority, you can tell Pharaoh that I have killed Moses."
Then God got Moses out of prison and back to his job as leader of Israel.
7 When Moses and Aaron spoke to Pharaoh, they were eighty and eighty-three years old, respectively. Their exact dates of birth are not known, but both men were likely born in the late 1550s or early 1560s.
They were both very long-lived people at that time. The average life expectancy for males in Egypt at this time was thirty-five years old. It is estimated that between 5 and 10 percent of the population lived beyond fifty years.
Moses and Aaron were the leaders of the Israelites after the death of their friend Joshua. They had been chosen by God to speak for him during a critical period in the history of his people.
When Moses protested being called to serve as God's messenger to Pharaoh, he said he was too old to be used as a servant of God. But God told Moses that he was not too old but rather that he would succeed where others had failed.
Moses then asked God what he should say to Pharaoh, and God told him how to respond to the king. Then Moses prayed for God to give him wisdom to lead effectively.
Moses was eighty years old when they talked to Pharaoh, and Aaron was eighty-three years old when they spoke to him. When they spoke to Pharaoh, Moses was eighty years old, and Aaron was eighty-three years old. Moses was 80 years old and Aaron was 83 years old when they met with Pharaoh.
7 states that Moses died at the age of 120, after having spent 40 years traveling in the desert. This suggests that when he led the Israelites out of Egypt, he was 80 years old. The Bible does not say how many years he lived after that, so we cannot be sure if he was still alive when the Exodus occurred.
Moses probably started traveling in the desert when he was 30 years old, which would make him about 60 now. Since he said to God's angel "I'm too young to die," he must have known that he was going to live a long time. The fact that he lived for another 40 years after leading the Israelites out of Egypt shows that God had plans for him even then.
Moses married an Egyptian woman named Jethro who was living in Sinai during his lifetime. She may have been a relative of his since they share the same father, but this is not certain. What is certain is that she cared for him when he was sick and that he loved her very much. When he died, he requested that she take care of his children after he was gone because he was too old to do it himself.
In conclusion, Moses was about 70 years old when he led the Israelites out of Egypt. He died at the age of 120 after having spent 40 years traveling in the desert.
(In that verse, we also learn that Aaron is three years older than his brother Moses.) And, near the end of the Pentateuch, we find that Moses dies at the age of 120. (Deut. 34:7). But it isn't until Acts 7:23 that we discover Moses was 40 years old when he initially departed Egypt. So, using these two passages as a guide, we can conclude that Aaron must have been 41 years old when he died.
Some Bible scholars believe that Aaron lived to be 95 years old and that this estimate should be used when calculating his age at his death. Others claim that there are hints in the text that suggest he might have lived for many more years so they use numbers closer to 120 or even 130. Still others say that because Moses for some reason doesn't mention how long he lived after leaving Egypt, we should assume the same thing about his brother Aaron. This last option means that people usually estimate that Aaron lived until around 15 or 16 years before Moses' death. However, since Moses did write down the date on which he was set free from slavery -- which was the day he died -- some scholars think it's unlikely that he forgot to mention that he had lived for so long after leaving Egypt.
In any case, it's clear that Aaron lived for quite a while after leaving Egypt.
