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