Jethro, Midian's priest and Moses' father-in-law, heard about everything that God had done for Moses and for God's people Israel, how the LORD had brought Israel out of Egypt.
Moses' father-in-law Jethro took with him Zipporah, Moses' wife whom he had sent away,
along with her two sons. One was named Gershom because he said, "I have been an immigranta living in a foreign land."
The other was named Eliezerb because he said, "The God of my ancestors was my helper who rescued me from Pharaoh's sword."
Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, brought Moses' sons and wife back to him in the desert where he had set up camp at God's mountain.
He sent word to Moses: "I, your father-in-law Jethro, am coming to you along with your wife and her two sons."
