I think that I found this talmudical debate the words are not precisely the word of the OP, but the consequences are the same. Up to day I have not found a better source. This Gemara is in Eruvin 64b-65a: R'Shesheth citing R'Eleazar B`Azariah observed: I could justify the exemption from judgment of all the [Israelite] world since the day of the ...

According to Rashi, peshuto shel Mikra (the actual meaning), there's nothing that points to him actually being Shlumiel ben Tzurishaddai in the literal sense (in fact, the opposite is implied when Rashi mentions that he was the head of only one family) and seemingly the Gemara in Sanhedrin (82b) is seen as Agadeta.

R. Dr. David Katz discusses this phenomenon: There were only two occasions where the communal rabbi was actually expected to preach to his community. First there was the pair of Sabbaths, the Sabbath before Passover, and the Sabbath before Yom Kippur.

Not sure who says this but in respect to Yitzchak's blessing Yaakov and Yaakov's blessing Ephraim and Menashe, they say that Yitzchak's goats and the placing of Yaakov's hands on his grandchildren's heads were done to create some form of connection between the one giving the brachah and the one receiving it. Perhaps you could say the same thing here; Hashem ...

See Gemara Nidda 31a about conjugal relationship during pregnancy: תנו רבנן שלשה חדשים הראשונים תשמיש קשה לאשה וגם קשה לולד אמצעיים קשה לאשה ויפה לולד אחרונים יפה לאשה ויפה לולד שמתוך כך נמצא הולד מלובן ומזורז תנא המשמש מטתו ליום תשעים כאילו שופך דמים מנא ידע אלא אמר אביי משמש והולך (תהילים קטז) ושומר פתאים ה׳ (Soncino translation) Our Rabbis ...
