Bible: Exodus 2:15-22

2:15 When Pharaoh heard 1  about this event, 2  he sought to kill Moses. So Moses fled 3  from Pharaoh and settled in the land of Midian, 4  and he settled 5  by a certain well. 6 

2:16 Now a priest of Midian had seven daughters, and they came and began to draw 7  water 8  and fill 9  the troughs in order to water their father’s flock. 2:17 When some 10  shepherds came and drove them away, 11  Moses came up and defended them 12  and then watered their flock. 2:18 So when they came home 13  to their father Reuel, 14  he asked, “Why have you come home so early 15  today? 2:19 They said, “An Egyptian man rescued us 16  from the shepherds, 17  and he actually 18  drew water for us and watered the flock! 2:20 He said 19  to his daughters, “So where is he? 20  Why in the world 21  did you leave the man? Call him, so that he may eat 22  a meal 23  with us.”

2:21 Moses agreed 24  to stay with the man, and he gave his daughter Zipporah to Moses in marriage. 25  2:22 When she bore 26  a son, Moses 27  named him Gershom, for he said, “I have become a resident foreigner in a foreign land.” 28
