Bible: Acts 7:20-29
7:20 At that time Moses was born, and he was beautiful 1 to God. For 2 three months he was brought up in his father’s house, 7:21 and when he had been abandoned, 3 Pharaoh’s daughter adopted 4 him and brought him up 5 as her own son. 7:22 So Moses was trained 6 in all the wisdom of the Egyptians and was powerful 7 in his words and deeds. 7:23 But when he was about forty years old, it entered his mind 8 to visit his fellow countrymen 9 the Israelites. 10 7:24 When 11 he saw one of them being hurt unfairly, 12 Moses 13 came to his defense 14 and avenged the person who was mistreated by striking down the Egyptian. 7:25 He thought his own people 15 would understand that God was delivering them 16 through him, 17 but they did not understand. 18 7:26 The next day Moses 19 saw two men 20 fighting, and tried to make peace between 21 them, saying, ‘Men, you are brothers; why are you hurting one another?’ 7:27 But the man who was unfairly hurting his neighbor pushed 22 Moses 23 aside, saying, ‘Who made 24 you a ruler and judge over us? 7:28 You don’t want to kill me the way you killed the Egyptian yesterday, do you?’ 25 7:29 When the man said this, 26 Moses fled and became a foreigner 27 in the land of Midian, where he became the father of two sons.
