The Second Book of Moses Called Exodus
Jethro Bible Study Lesson
Moses and Jethro Bible Story
Nice to see you again at our Daily Bread! It's been an eventful trip
so far with Moses and the children of Israel during their exodus from
Egypt. By the Lord's hand, they escaped the clenches of Pharaoh in
the Red Sea and most recently, they defeated the attack of the
Back in Midian, Moses' father-in-law Jethro heard of all that God had
done for Moses and His people and how He brought Israel out of Egypt.
When Moses left Midian to go to Egypt, Zipporah, his wife was with
him, but he sent her back. So Jethro took Zipporah and Moses' two
sons to visit Moses. It was mentioned earlier that Moses first son
was named Gershom, because Moses said, I have been an alien in a
strange land. Moses second son was named Eliezer, which means, help
of my God, because Moses said, for the God of my father was my help
and delivered me from the sword of Pharaoh.
Moses and the children of Israel were camped in the wilderness at the
mount of God when Jethro and Zipporah and Moses two sons arrived.
Moses told Jethro all that the Lord had done to Pharaoh and to the
Egyptians for Israel's sake. Moses told about all that they went
through on their way to the Promised Land and how the Lord delivered
them from turmoil. For all of these things, Jethro was happy and he
said, Blessed be the Lord. Now I know that the Lord is greater than
all gods, because in the thing that they were most proud of, He was
more powerful. Jethro took a burnt offering and sacrifices for God
and Aaron and all the elders of Israel came to eat bread with Jethro
in front of God.

The next day, Moses sat to judge the people. That means that whenever
there was any kind of problem, the people came to Moses with
it, and he told them what was right and wrong. If there were other
kinds of problems that needed resolutions, Moses would decide what to
do. The people stood by Moses from the morning until the evening, as
you can imagine, with such a large amount of people, there were many
When Jethro saw all that Moses did for the people, he said, Why do
you do all this alone? Moses answered, Because the people ask me what
God wants them to do. When they have a problem, they come to me and I
judge between one and another and I teach them the statutes of God,
and His laws.
Jethro said, This isn't good. You're going to wear away, both you and
the people with you because the burden is too heavy for one person.
Listen to me and I'll give you advice and God will be with you. Guide
the people to God, then you can bring the disputes to Him. Teach them
ordinances and laws, and show them the way to live righteously and to
do the work that they must do.

And also, choose out of all the people, men that fear God, honest
men, hating covetousness, and put them in charge over thousands, and
hundreds and fifties and tens, and let them judge the people. Every
important matter they will still bring to you, but small matters,
they can judge, so it'll be easier on you and they'll bear the burden
with you. If you do this and God approves, then you won't be wearied
and God's people will go to their place in peace.
As you may well imagine, Moses must have been pretty weathered after
all he had done but he felt how important his job was and his
devotion to it was so strong that he never even thought of getting
help from others. But what Jethro said made sense, to give it to God
and things would be easier, so Moses listened to his father-in-law
and did all that he said. And Jethro left and went back to Midian.
