- 16 Now the R39 priest of Midian had seven daughters; and they R40 came to draw water and filled the troughs to water their father's flock. 17 Then the shepherds came and drove them away, but Moses R41 stood up and helped them and watered their flock. 18 When they came to Reuel R42 their father, he said, "Why have you come back so soon today?" 19 So they said, "An Egyptian delivered us from the hand of the shepherds, and what is more, he even drew the water for us and watered the flock." 20 He said to his daughters, "Where is he then? Why is it that you have left the man behind? Invite him to F41 have something to eat." 21 Moses R43 was willing to dwell with the man, and he gave his daughter Zipporah R44 to Moses. 22 Then she gave birth to a R45 son, and he named him Gershom, F42 for he said, "I have been a R46 sojourner F43 in a foreign land."
