Exodus 4:18 (King James Version)
And Moses went and returned to Jethro his father in law, and said unto him, Let me go, I pray thee, and return unto my brethren which are in Egypt, and see whether they be yet alive. And Jethro said to Moses, Go in peace.
- Hebrew Jether.
- Let me go
- 1 Timothy 6:1
- and see
- Genesis 45:3 ; Acts 15:36
- Go in peace
- 1 Samuel 1:17 ; Luke 7:50 ; Acts 16:36
- In the LXX. and Coptic, the following addition is made to this verse: [Meta de tas Lemeras tas pollas ekeinas eteleutsen ho basileus Aigyptou,] "After these many days, the king of Egypt died." This was probably an ancient side-note, which crept into the text, as it appeared to throw light on the next verse.
