Did moses ever get punished by God for killing that Egyptian man

Sin must be punished by a holy an righteous God before giving a murder the commandments.just wondering

No. Because God s discipline is for the people that choose Him. The rest, they get what comes to them after they d_e. Except when they mess with the people of God. When Moses _illed that man, neither the man was of God, neither Moses was. So its just like what happens daily on the streets. And for the sins, there were sacrifices, now there s a sacrifice. The one Jesus did. Gby

I think part if his punishment was leading the Israelites through the desert. He had to leave his family and had to put up with there complaints. :)

Moses begins to empathize with the plight of his people, and upon witnessing an Egyptian beating a Hebrew slave, Moses intervenes and kills the Egyptian. In another incident, Moses attempts to intervene in a dispute between two Hebrews, but one of the Hebrews rebukes Moses and sarcastically comments, "Are you going to kill me as you did the Egyptian?" (Exodus 2:14). Realizing that his criminal act was made known, Moses flees to the land of Midian where he again plays the hero-this time to the daughters of Jethro by rescuing them from some bandits. In gratitude, Jethro grants the hand of his daughter Zipporah to Moses.

So Moses fled to Midian.

In my opinion, his punishment was that he was not allowed to enter the promised land. You can say he was punished because he disobeyed the last commandment that the Lord had given him - but isn't it possible that God caused him to disobey that last command? Couldn't God had prevented him from disobeying him if He wanted to? In the same way that he prevented Pharoh from obeying his commands?

Free Will. God doesnt make anyone disobey Him. Its our CHOICE to either obey or disobey. God is not a puppet master. Thats why He gave us free will in the first place.

Well he did have to runaway and leave the woman he thought of as his mother as well as his siblings because the king wanted to execute him. He left behind an oppulent lifestyle in an Egyptian palace and went to work as a lowly shepherd , basically an outcast. So call it punushment or discipline, but Moses didnt get away with it free and clear. As were all the leaders God chose, Moses was a flawed man. In the very end he wasnt allowed to enter the promised land of Canaan because of constant disobedience.

He was punished by never being able to enter into the promise land. Arron, his brother-in-law and was the one that took over for Moses.
