Exodus 18:2-4 Darby Translation (DARBY)

And Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, took Zipporah, Moses' wife, after he had sent her back,

and her two sons, of whom the name of the one was Gershom—for he said, I have been a sojourner in a foreign land,

—and the name of the other, Eliezer—For the God of my father has been my help, and has delivered me from the sword of Pharaoh.

Exodus 18:2-4 New International Version (NIV)

After Moses had sent away his wife Zipporah, his father-in-law Jethro received her and her two sons. One son was named Gershom,[a] for Moses said, “I have become a foreigner in a foreign land”; and the other was named Eliezer,[b] for he said, “My father’s God was my helper; he saved me from the sword of Pharaoh.”

Footnotes:

  1. Exodus 18:3 Gershom sounds like the Hebrew for a foreigner there.
  2. Exodus 18:4 Eliezer means my God is helper.
