Jethro

After killing a man, Moses flees Pharaoh and settles in Midian to live (Exodus 2:11 – 2:22)

After Moses reached adulthood, he went to where his own people were and watched them work at hard labor. He saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his own people. He looked around, and seeing no one, he struck the Egyptian dead and hid his body in the sand. The next day, Moses went out and saw two Hebrews fighting each other. He asked the one in the wrong, “Why are you hitting your fellow Hebrew?” The man snarled, “Who made you the ruler and judge over us? Are you thinking of killing me like you killed the Egyptian?” Moses was afraid that what he had done had become known to others. When Pharaoh heard this, he tried to kill Moses, but Moses fled to Midian
