    18:1 When Jethro 3503, the priest 3548 of Midian 4080, Moses' 4872 father in law 2859 8802, heard 8085 8799 of all that God 430 had done 6213 8804 for Moses 4872, and for Israel 3478 his people 5971, [and] that the LORD 3068 had brought 3318 8689 Israel 3478 out of Egypt 4714;

    18:2 Then Jethro 3503, Moses' 4872 father in law 2859 8802, took 3947 8799 Zipporah 6855, Moses' 4872 wife 802, after 310 he had sent her back 7964,

    18:3 And her two 8147 sons 1121; of which the name 8034 of the one 259 [was] Gershom 1647; for he said 559 8804, I have been an alien 1616 in a strange 5237 land 776:(Gershom: that is A stranger there)

    18:4 And the name 8034 of the other 259 [was] Eliezer 461; for the God 430 of my father 1, [said he, was] mine help 5828, and delivered 5337 8686 me from the sword 2719 of Pharaoh 6547:(Eliezer: that is, My God is an help)

    18:5 And Jethro 3503, Moses' 4872 father in law 2859 8802, came 935 8799 with his sons 1121 and his wife 802 unto Moses 4872 into the wilderness 4057, where he encamped 2583 8802 at the mount 2022 of God 430:

    18:6 And he said 559 8799 unto Moses 4872, I thy father in law 2859 8802 Jethro 3503 am come 935 8802 unto thee, and thy wife 802, and her two 8147 sons 1121 with her.

    18:7 And Moses 4872 went out 3318 8799 to meet 7125 8800 his father in law 2859 8802, and did obeisance 7812 8691, and kissed 5401 8799 him; and they asked 7592 8799 each 376 other 7453 of [their] welfare 7965; and they came 935 8799 into the tent 168.(welfare: Heb. peace)

    18:8 And Moses 4872 told 5608 8762 his father in law 2859 8802 all that the LORD 3068 had done 6213 8804 unto Pharaoh 6547 and to the Egyptians 4714 for Israel's 3478 sake 182, [and] all the travail 8513 that had come 4672 8804 upon them by the way 1870, and [how] the LORD 3068 delivered 5337 8686 them.(come…: Heb. found them)

    18:9 And Jethro 3503 rejoiced 2302 8799 for all the goodness 2896 which the LORD 3068 had done 6213 8804 to Israel 3478, whom he had delivered 5337 8689 out of the hand 3027 of the Egyptians 4714.

    18:10 And Jethro 3503 said 559 8799, Blessed 1288 8803 [be] the LORD 3068, who hath delivered 5337 8689 you out of the hand 3027 of the Egyptians 4714, and out of the hand 3027 of Pharaoh 6547, who hath delivered 5337 8689 the people 5971 from under the hand 3027 of the Egyptians 4714.

    18:11 Now I know 3045 8804 that the LORD 3068 [is] greater 1419 than all gods 430: for in the thing 1697 wherein they dealt proudly 2102 8804 [he was] above them.

    18:12 And Jethro 3503, Moses' 4872 father in law 2859 8802, took 3947 8799 a burnt offering 5930 and sacrifices 2077 for God 430: and Aaron 175 came 935 8799, and all the elders 2205 of Israel 3478, to eat 398 8800 bread 3899 with Moses' 4872 father in law 2859 8802 before 6440 God 430.

    18:13 And it came to pass on the morrow 4283, that Moses 4872 sat 3427 8799 to judge 8199 8800 the people 5971: and the people 5971 stood 5975 8799 by Moses 4872 from the morning 1242 unto the evening 6153.

    18:14 And when Moses' 4872 father in law 2859 8802 saw 7200 8799 all that he did 6213 8802 to the people 5971, he said 559 8799, What [is] this thing 1697 that thou doest 6213 8802 to the people 5971? why sittest 3427 8802 thou thyself alone, and all the people 5971 stand 5324 8737 by thee from morning 1242 unto even 6153?

    18:15 And Moses 4872 said 559 8799 unto his father in law 2859 8802, Because the people 5971 come 935 8799 unto me to enquire 1875 8800 of God 430:

    18:16 When they have a matter 1697, they come 935 8802 unto me; and I judge 8199 8804 between one 376 and another 7453, and I do make [them] know 3045 8689 the statutes 2706 of God 430, and his laws 8451.(one…: Heb. a man and his fellow)

    18:17 And Moses' 4872 father in law 2859 8802 said 559 8799 unto him, The thing 1697 that thou doest 6213 8802 [is] not good 2896.

    18:18 Thou wilt surely 5034 8800 wear away 5034 8799, both thou, and this people 5971 that [is] with thee: for this thing 1697 [is] too heavy 3515 for thee; thou art not able 3201 8799 to perform 6213 8800 it thyself alone.(Thou wilt…: Heb. Fading thou wilt fade)

    18:19 Hearken 8085 8798 now unto my voice 6963, I will give thee counsel 3289 8799, and God 430 shall be 1961 8798 with thee: Be thou for the people 5971 to God-ward 4136 430, that thou mayest bring 935 8689 the causes 1697 unto God 430:

    18:20 And thou shalt teach 2094 8689 853 them ordinances 2706 and laws 8451, and shalt shew 3045 8689 them the way 1870 wherein they must walk 3212 8799, and the work 4639 that they must do 6213 8799.

    18:21 Moreover thou shalt provide 2372 8799 out of all the people 5971 able 2428 men 582, such as fear 3373 God 430, men 582 of truth 571, hating 8130 8802 covetousness 1215; and place 7760 8804 [such] over them, [to be] rulers 8269 of thousands 505, [and] rulers 8269 of hundreds 3967, rulers 8269 of fifties 2572, and rulers 8269 of tens 6235:

    18:22 And let them judge 8199 8804 the people 5971 at all seasons 6256: and it shall be, [that] every great 1419 matter 1697 they shall bring 935 8686 unto thee, but every small 6996 matter 1697 they shall judge 8199 8799: so shall it be easier 7043 8685 for thyself, and they shall bear 5375 8804 [the burden] with thee.

    18:23 If thou shalt do 6213 8799 this thing 1697, and God 430 command 6680 8765 thee [so], then thou shalt be able 3201 8804 to endure 5975 8800, and all this people 5971 shall also go 935 8799 to their place 4725 in peace 7965.

    18:24 So Moses 4872 hearkened 8085 8799 to the voice 6963 of his father in law 2859 8802, and did 6213 8799 all that he had said 559 8804.

    18:25 And Moses 4872 chose 977 8799 able 2428 men 582 out of all Israel 3478, and made 5414 8799 them heads 7218 over the people 5971, rulers 8269 of thousands 505, rulers 8269 of hundreds 3967, rulers 8269 of fifties 2572, and rulers 8269 of tens 6235.

    18:26 And they judged 8199 8804 the people 5971 at all seasons 6256: the hard 7186 causes 1697 they brought 935 8686 unto Moses 4872, but every small 6996 matter 1697 1992 they judged 8199 8799 themselves.

    18:27 And Moses 4872 let his father in law 2859 8802 depart 7971 8762; and he went 3212 8799 his way into his own land 776.
