Exodus 4:26 In-Context

24 On the trip, at an overnight campsite, it happened that the Lord confronted him and sought to put him to death.
25 So Zipporah took a flint, cut off her son's foreskin, and threw it at Moses' feet. Then she said, "You are a bridegroom of blood to me!"
26 So He let him alone. At that time she said, "You are a bridegroom of blood," referring to the circumcision.
27 Now the Lord had said to Aaron, "Go and meet Moses in the wilderness." So he went and met him at the mountain of God and kissed him.
28 Moses told Aaron everything the Lord had sent him to say, and about all the signs He had commanded him [to do].
