Some Advice From Dear Old Dad

It's easy to forget that Moses was married. The first time he left Egypt, Moses was taken in by a priest from the land of Midian named Jethro, and Moses married his daughter Zipporah. They had two sons, Gershom and Eliezer.

God's appearance to Moses in the burning bush caused considerable problems between the couple, and Moses finally sent her and the boys to live with Jethro when he went back to Egypt.

But after the Exodus, word of all that God had done through Moses reached Jethro, and apparently that was enough to smooth things over. When Moses sent for Zipporah and the boys to join him, Jethro came with them.

The story of their reunion is told in Exodus 18.
