Moses: "I am of uncircumcised lips" in Exodus 6.
Isaiah: "I am a man of unclean lips" in Isaiah 6.

Wonderful!

Add to that the following passage from Jeremiah:

Jer 6:10 To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear? behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot hearken: behold, the word of the LORD is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it.
Compare this to your original Exodus verse:

Exo 6:30 And Moses said before the LORD, Behold, I am of uncircumcised lips, and how shall Pharaoh hearken unto me?
They form a two-dimensional KeyLink based on the words (uncircumcised, hearken). Both verses are on Spoke 2 of the Bible Wheel and Spoke 6 of their Inner Wheels. In Exodus, the messenger says he has uncircumcised lips. In Jeremiah, the hearers are the ones who have uncircumscised ears. A perfect match.

All three - Moses, Isaiah and Jeremiah - claim that they are inadequate for the job God gave them. Add to that list Gideon:

Jdg 6:15 And he said unto him, Oh my Lord, wherewith shall I save Israel? behold, my family is poor in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father's house.
So we have a common concept running through Exodus 6, Judges 6, Isaiah 6 and Jeremiah 6.
