Sharing the burden of leadership

1 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. 2 Moses' father-in-law Jethro took with him Zipporah, Moses' wife whom he had sent away, 3 along with her two sons. One was named Gershom because he said, "I have been an immigranta living in a foreign land." 4 The other was named Eliezerb because he said, "The God of my ancestors was my helper who rescued me from Pharaoh's sword." 5 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. 6 He sent word to Moses: "I, your father-in-law Jethro, am coming to you along with your wife and her two sons."
