Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters; and they came and drew water, and filled the troughs to water their father's flock.
And the shepherds came and drove them away; but Moses stood up and helped them, and watered their flock.
And when they came to Reuel their father, he said, "How is it that ye have come so soon today?"
And they said, "An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds, and also drew water enough for us and watered the flock."
And he said unto his daughters, "And where is he? Why is it that ye have left the man? Call him, that he may eat bread."
And Moses was content to dwell with the man; and he gave Moses Zipporah his daughter.
And she bore him a son, and he called his name Gershom [that is, A stranger there]; for he said, "I have been a stranger in a strange land."
And it came to pass in process of time that the king of Egypt died. And the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried; and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage.
And God heard their groaning, and God remembered His covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.
And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God took heed of them.
