11 Now it came about in those days, 1when Moses had grown up, that he went out to his brethren and looked on their 2hard labors; and 3he saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his brethren.
12 So he looked this way and that, and when he saw there was no one around, he 4struck down the Egyptian and hid him in the sand.
13 He went out 5the next day, and behold, two Hebrews were fighting with each other; and he said to the offender, "Why are you striking your companion?"
14 But he said, "6Who made you a prince or a judge over us? Are you intending to kill me as you killed the Egyptian?" Then Moses was afraid and said, "Surely the matter has become known."

Moses Escapes to Midian

15 When Pharaoh heard of this matter, he tried to kill Moses. But 7Moses fled from the presence of Pharaoh and settled in the land of Midian, and he sat down 8by a well.
