Bible: Acts 7:22-29
7:22 So Moses was trained 1 in all the wisdom of the Egyptians and was powerful 2 in his words and deeds. 7:23 But when he was about forty years old, it entered his mind 3 to visit his fellow countrymen 4 the Israelites. 5 7:24 When 6 he saw one of them being hurt unfairly, 7 Moses 8 came to his defense 9 and avenged the person who was mistreated by striking down the Egyptian. 7:25 He thought his own people 10 would understand that God was delivering them 11 through him, 12 but they did not understand. 13 7:26 The next day Moses 14 saw two men 15 fighting, and tried to make peace between 16 them, saying, ‘Men, you are brothers; why are you hurting one another?’ 7:27 But the man who was unfairly hurting his neighbor pushed 17 Moses 18 aside, saying, ‘Who made 19 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?’ 20 7:29 When the man said this, 21 Moses fled and became a foreigner 22 in the land of Midian, where he became the father of two sons.
