Think about this for more than a second or two. Moshe’s whole life was about his people-The Jewish nation. Moshes did not want to exist without his people.
This happened right after we built the golden calf. G-d told Moshe HE was going to wipe us off the face of the earth. Moshe stood his ground and said no to G-d. Take me out of your book for I Moshe will not be apart of your book G-d without my people.
G-d said; “Okay. I agree with you.”
