Why did Hashem come down alone (in an Amud Anan) and not with an entourage?

1.

Rashi: When Hakadosh-Baruch-Hu goes to war, He goes alone, 1 and when He goes for peace, He travels with His retinue. 2


1

Rashi: As the Torah writes in the Shirah "Hashem Ish Milchamah". (His harsh rebuke of Aharon and Miryam was like war.)

2

As the Pasuk writes in Tehilim, 68:18 "Rechev Ribosayim Alfei Shin'an".

2)

Why did Hashem call Aharon and Miriam?

1.

Rashi: In order that they leave the Azarah where they had gathered together with Moshe.

3)

Why did He want to separate them from Moshe?

1.

Rashi #1: Because He wanted to relate the full praise of Moshe, and one relates only part of a Tzadik's praise in his presence. 1

2.

Rashi #2: So that Moshe should not overhear when Hashem rebuked Aharon. 2


1

Rashi: Like we find by No'ach, whom Hashem referred to "Tzadik" in his presence (See Bereishis 7:1) and as "Tzadik Tamim" not in front of him.

2

Perhaps He was concerned only lest Moshe hear the rebuke of Aharon, for in any case he will know that Miryam was punished for a misdeed. (PF)
