shabbat 89

only the ones who know the fearful place at the top of the mountain are able to defend the people against forces of destruction.

(on this page Moses is challenged by the angels and defends the giving of Torah to humans, Moses also defends the people against Satan. Later in the page only Isaac out of the three patriarchs defends the people against God, using the merit of his role in the Akedah. for english translation of this talmud page, see here)
