Normally, they will settle the people's disputes. They should bring you the difficult cases; but ordinary matters they should decide themselves. In this way, they will make it easier for you and share the load with you.
If you do this - and God is directing you to do it - you will be able to endure; and all these people too will arrive at their destination peacefully."
Moshe paid attention to his father-in-law's counsel and did everything he said.
Moshe chose competent men from all Isra'el and made them heads over the people, in charge of thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens.
As a general rule, they settled the people's disputes - the difficult cases they brought to Moshe, but every simple matter they decided themselves.
Then Moshe let his father-in-law leave, and he went off to his own country.
