יב וְאֶת־כָּל־עָרֵי הַמְּלָכִים־הָאֵלֶּה וְאֶת־כָּל־מַלְכֵיהֶם לָכַד יְהוֹשֻׁעַ וַיַּכֵּם לְפִי־חֶרֶב הֶחֱרִים אוֹתָם כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה מֹשֶׁה עֶבֶד יְהֹוָה׃
11:12 In accordance with the charge of Moshe, the servant of Hashem
Moshe is described as being an eved (עבד) of Hashem. In Hebrew, eved can mean a ‘slave.’ However, it is also used to describe a servant, particularly one who faithfully serves his master. Therefore, one of the greatest praises that can be offered is to be called by the title “Eved Hashem,” a ‘faithful servant of God,’ who always strives to fulfill His will. Moshe is the greatest example of this, but all human beings are to strive to achieve this high level of being a faithful servant to God.
