Now Yitro the priest of Midyan, Moshe's father-in-law, heard about all that God had done for Moshe and for Isra'el his people, how ADONAI had brought Isra'el out of Egypt.
After Moshe had sent away his wife Tzipporah and her two sons, Yitro Moshe's father-in-law had taken them back.
The name of the one son was Gershom [a foreigner there], for Moshe had said, "I have been a foreigner in a foreign land."
The name of the other was Eli'ezer [my God helps], "because the God of my father helped me by rescuing me from Pharaoh's sword."
Yitro Moshe's father-in-law brought Moshe's sons and wife to him in the desert where he was encamped, at the mountain of God.
He sent word to Moshe, "I, your father-in-law Yitro, am coming to you with your wife and her two sons."
