Now it came about in thosedays, 1when Moses had grown up, that he went out to his brethren and looked on their a2hardlabors ; and 3he saw an Egyptianbeating a Hebrew, one of his brethren.
So he blookedthisway and that, and when he sawthere was noone around, he 4struckdown the Egyptian and hid him in the sand.
He went out 5the nextday, and behold, twoHebrews were cfighting with each other; and he said to the doffender, "Why are you striking your companion ?"
But he said, "6Whomade you a eprince or a judgeover us? Are you fintending to kill me as you killed the Egyptian ?" Then Moses was afraid and said, "Surely the matter has become known."
