Jethro Visits Moses

181 Now Jethro, the priest of Midian and father-in-law of Moses, heard of everything God had done for Moses and for his people Israel, and how the Lord had brought Israel out of Egypt.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Exodus 18:1

Commentary on Exodus 18:1-6

(Read Exodus 18:1-6)

Jethro came to rejoice with Moses in the happiness of Israel, and to bring his wife and children to him. Moses must have his family with him, that while he ruled the church of God, he might set a good example in family government, 1 Timothy 3:5.
