Chapter 18

  1. 1. When Jethro,
    H3503
    the priest
    H3548
    of Midian,
    H4080
    Moses'
    H4872
    father in law,
    H2859
    heard
    H8085
    of all that God
    H430
    had done
    H6213
    for Moses,
    H4872
    and for Israel
    H3478
    his people,
    H5971
    and that the LORD
    H3068
    had brought
    H3318
    Israel
    H3478
    out of Egypt;
    H4714
  2. 2. Then Jethro,
    H3503
    Moses'
    H4872
    father in law,
    H2859
    took
    H3947
    Zipporah,
    H6855
    Moses'
    H4872
    wife,
    H802
    after
    H310
    he had sent her back,
    H7964
  3. 3. And her two
    H8147
    sons;
    H1121
    of which the name
    H8034
    of the one
    H259
    was Gershom;
    H1647
    for he said,
    H559
    I have been an alien
    H1616
    in a strange
    H5237
    land:
    H776
  4. 4. And the name
    H8034
    of the other
    H259
    was Eliezer;
    H461
    for the God
    H430
    of my father,
    H1
    said he, was mine help,
    H5828
    and delivered
    H5337
    me from the sword
    H2719
    of Pharaoh:
    H6547
  5. 5. And Jethro,
    H3503
    Moses'
    H4872
    father in law,
    H2859
    came
    H935
    with his sons
    H1121
    and his wife
    H802
    unto Moses
    H4872
    into the wilderness,
    H4057
    where he encamped
    H2583
    at the mount
    H2022
    of God:
    H430
  6. 6. And he said
    H559
    unto Moses,
    H4872
    I thy father in law
    H2859
    Jethro
    H3503
    am come
    H935
    unto thee, and thy wife,
    H802
    and her two
    H8147
    sons
    H1121
    with her.
  7. 7. And Moses
    H4872
    went out
    H3318
    to meet
    H7125
    his father in law,
    H2859
    and did obeisance,
    H7812
    and kissed
    H5401
    him; and they asked
    H7592
    each
    H376
    other
    H7453
    of their welfare;
    H7965
    and they came
    H935
    into the tent.
    H168
  8. 8. And Moses
    H4872
    told
    H5608
    his father in law
    H2859
    all that the LORD
    H3068
    had done
    H6213
    unto Pharaoh
    H6547
    and to the Egyptians
    H4714
    for Israel's
    H3478
    sake,
    H182
    and all the travail
    H8513
    that had come
    H4672
    upon them by the way,
    H1870
    and how the LORD
    H3068
    delivered
    H5337
    them.
  9. 9. And Jethro
    H3503
    rejoiced
    H2302
    for all the goodness
    H2896
    which the LORD
    H3068
    had done
    H6213
    to Israel,
    H3478
    whom he had delivered
    H5337
    out of the hand
    H3027
    of the Egyptians.
    H4714
  10. 10. And Jethro
    H3503
    said,
    H559
    Blessed
    H1288
    be the LORD,
    H3068
    who hath delivered
    H5337
    you out of the hand
    H3027
    of the Egyptians,
    H4714
    and out of the hand
    H3027
    of Pharaoh,
    H6547
    who hath delivered
    H5337
    the people
    H5971
    from under the hand
    H3027
    of the Egyptians.
    H4714
  11. 11. Now I know
    H3045
    that the LORD
    H3068
    is greater
    H1419
    than all gods:
    H430
    for in the thing
    H1697
    wherein they dealt proudly
    H2102
    he was above them.
  12. 12. And Jethro,
    H3503
    Moses'
    H4872
    father in law,
    H2859
    took
    H3947
    a burnt offering
    H5930
    and sacrifices
    H2077
    for God:
    H430
    and Aaron
    H175
    came,
    H935
    and all the elders
    H2205
    of Israel,
    H3478
    to eat
    H398
    bread
    H3899
    with Moses'
    H4872
    father in law
    H2859
    before
    H6440
    God.
    H430
  13. 13. And it came to pass on the morrow,
    H4283
    that Moses
    H4872
    sat
    H3427
    to judge
    H8199
    the people:
    H5971
    and the people
    H5971
    stood
    H5975
    by Moses
    H4872
    from the morning
    H1242
    unto the evening.
    H6153
  14. 14. And when Moses'
    H4872
    father in law
    H2859
    saw
    H7200
    all that he did
    H6213
    to the people,
    H5971
    he said,
    H559
    What is this thing
    H1697
    that thou doest
    H6213
    to the people?
    H5971
    why sittest
    H3427
    thou thyself alone, and all the people
    H5971
    stand
    H5324
    by thee from morning
    H1242
    unto even?
    H6153
  15. 15. And Moses
    H4872
    said
    H559
    unto his father in law,
    H2859
    Because the people
    H5971
    come
    H935
    unto me to enquire
    H1875
    of God:
    H430
  16. 16. When they have a matter,
    H1697
    they come
    H935
    unto me; and I judge
    H8199
    between one
    H376
    and another,
    H7453
    and I do make them know
    H3045
    the statutes
    H2706
    of God,
    H430
    and his laws.
    H8451
  17. 17. And Moses'
    H4872
    father in law
    H2859
    said
    H559
    unto him, The thing
    H1697
    that thou doest
    H6213
    is not good.
    H2896
  18. 18. Thou wilt surely
    H5034
    wear away,
    H5034
    both thou, and this people
    H5971
    that is with thee: for this thing
    H1697
    is too heavy
    H3515
    for thee; thou art not able
    H3201
    to perform
    H6213
    it thyself alone.
  19. 19. Hearken
    H8085
    now unto my voice,
    H6963
    I will give thee counsel,
    H3289
    and God
    H430
    shall be
    H1961
    with thee: Be thou for the people
    H5971
    to God-ward,
    H430
    H4136
    that thou mayest bring
    H935
    the causes
    H1697
    unto God:
    H430
  20. 20. And thou shalt teach
    H2094
    H853
    them ordinances
    H2706
    and laws,
    H8451
    and shalt shew
    H3045
    them the way
    H1870
    wherein they must walk,
    H3212
    and the work
    H4639
    that they must do.
    H6213
  21. 21. Moreover thou shalt provide
    H2372
    out of all the people
    H5971
    able
    H2428
    men,
    H582
    such as fear
    H3373
    God,
    H430
    men
    H582
    of truth,
    H571
    hating
    H8130
    covetousness;
    H1215
    and place
    H7760
    such over them, to be rulers
    H8269
    of thousands,
    H505
    and rulers
    H8269
    of hundreds,
    H3967
    rulers
    H8269
    of fifties,
    H2572
    and rulers
    H8269
    of tens:
    H6235
  22. 22. And let them judge
    H8199
    the people
    H5971
    at all seasons:
    H6256
    and it shall be, that every great
    H1419
    matter
    H1697
    they shall bring
    H935
    unto thee, but every small
    H6996
    matter
    H1697
    they shall judge:
    H8199
    so shall it be easier
    H7043
    for thyself, and they shall bear
    H5375
    the burden with thee.
  23. 23. If thou shalt do
    H6213
    this thing,
    H1697
    and God
    H430
    command
    H6680
    thee so, then thou shalt be able
    H3201
    to endure,
    H5975
    and all this people
    H5971
    shall also go
    H935
    to their place
    H4725
    in peace.
    H7965
  24. 24. So Moses
    H4872
    hearkened
    H8085
    to the voice
    H6963
    of his father in law,
    H2859
    and did
    H6213
    all that he had said.
    H559
  25. 25. And Moses
    H4872
    chose
    H977
    able
    H2428
    men
    H582
    out of all Israel,
    H3478
    and made
    H5414
    them heads
    H7218
    over the people,
    H5971
    rulers
    H8269
    of thousands,
    H505
    rulers
    H8269
    of hundreds,
    H3967
    rulers
    H8269
    of fifties,
    H2572
    and rulers
    H8269
    of tens.
    H6235
  26. 26. And they judged
    H8199
    the people
    H5971
    at all seasons:
    H6256
    the hard
    H7186
    causes
    H1697
    they brought
    H935
    unto Moses,
    H4872
    but every small
    H6996
    matter
    H1992
    they
    H1697
    judged
    H8199
    themselves.
  27. 27. And Moses
    H4872
    let his father in law
    H2859
    depart;
    H7971
    and he went
    H3212
    his way into his own land.
