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.
