Moses lived in the land of Midian, and he sat down by a well. The priest there had seven daughters, who came to water their sheep. But the shepherds drove them away. But Moses helped them and they watered their sheep. The father of the seven asked his daughters why they had returned so soon. They answered, “An Egyptian man stood with us against the shepherds, and drew for us out of the well and watered the sheep.” “Where is the man? Invite him to eat with us.” Moses accepted the invitation and the man gave him his daughter Zipporah as a wife. And she bore a son, "Gershom," because Moses said, “I have become a foreigner in a foreign land.”
