Exodus 2, 16 – 22 „Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters, and they came to draw water and fill the troughs to water their father’s flock. 17But shepherds came and drove them away. So Moses rose up in their defense and watered their flock. 18When they returned to their father Reuel, he said to them, How is it you have returned so soon today? 19They answered, An Egyptian delivered us from the shepherds. He even drew water for us and watered the flock! 20Where is he? he asked his daughters. Why did you leave the man there? Invite him to have something to eat. 21Moses agreed to stay with him, and the man gave Moses his daughter Zipporah in marriage. 22She conceived and bore a son, whom he named Gershom; for he said, I am a stranger residing in a foreign land”.
