And Jethro, priest of Midian, father-in-law of Moses, heard all that God had done for Moses, and for Israel his people, - in that Yahweh had brought forth Israel out of Egypt.
Now, the priest of Midian, had seven daughters, - and they came and drew and filled the troughs, to water their fathers flock.
Now, Moses, was shepherding the flock of Jethro his father-in-law priest of Midian, - so he led forth the flock behind the desert, and came in unto the mountain of God to Horeb.
Thou, art GOD, doing wonderfully, - Thou hast made known, among the peoples, thy might;
Then came they in unto Reuel their father, - and he said, Wherefore have ye so early come in to-day?
And Moses was well-pleased to dwell with the man, - and he gave Zipporah his daughter to Moses.
So Moses went and returned unto Jethro his father-in-law and said to him - Let me go, I pray thee, and return unto my brethren who are in Egypt, that I my see whether they are yet alive. And Jethro said to Moses: Go and prosper.
Then said Yahweh unto Moses - See! I have appointed thee to be God unto Pharaoh, - and, Aaron thy brother, shall be thy prophet!
Then said Moses to Hobab, son of Raguel the Midianite, father-in-law of Moses: Setting forward, are we unto the place of which Yahweh hath said, The same, will I give unto you, - Oh come with us and we will do thee good, for, Yahweh, hath spoken good, concerning Israel.
For we have heard how Yahweh, dried up, the waters of the Red Sea from before you, when ye came forth out of Egypt, - and what ye did unto the two kings of the Amorites who were over the Jordan unto Sihon and unto Og, whom ye devoted to destruction;
And they said unto him - From a very far country, have thy servants come, because of the name of Yahweh thy God, - because we had heard his fame, and all that he had done in Egypt;
Now, Heber the Kenite, had separated himself from the Kenites, even from the sons of Hobab, father-in-law of Moses, - and moved his tent as far as the oak of Zaanaim, which is near Kadesh.
and didst grant signs and wonders against Pharaoh, and against all his servants, and against all the people of his land, for thou hadst taken note, that they ruled proudly over them, - and so thou didst make thee a name, as at this day.
O God! with our own ears, have we heard, Our fathers, have recounted to us, - The work thou didst work, In their day, In the days of aforetime:
We will not withhold them from their children, To a later generation, recounting the praises of Yahweh, Even his might and his wonders which he wrought;
He leveled a path for his anger, Withheld not, from death, their soul, But, their life - to the pestilence, he delivered:
Remember his wonders which he hath done, His portents, and the just decisions of his mouth.
Then smote he every firstborn in their land, The beginning of all their strength;
Thus brought he forth his people with gladness, - With shouts of triumph, his chosen ones;
Yet he saved them, for the sake of his Name, to make known his mighty power;
To him that smote Egypt in their firstborn, For, age-abiding, is his lovingkindness.
Then were recalled the days of the age-past time Moses - his people: - Where is he that led them up out of the sea with the shepherds of his flock? Where is he that put within him his Holy Spirit?
So shall she become to me - A name of joy, A praise and An adorning, To all the nations of the earth, - Who will hear all the good which I am doing them, And will dread and be deeply moved over all the good and over all the prosperity which I am causing her.
Thus, saith Yahweh of hosts, In those days, it shall be that ten men out of all the tongues of the nations, shall take hold, - yea take hold of the skirt of every one that is a Jew, saying - We will go with you! For we have heard that , God, is with you.

And, when they had arrived and gathered together the assembly, they began recounting how many things God had done with them, and that he had opened, unto the nations, a door of faith.
And all the throng held their peace, and began to hearken unto Barnabas and Paul relating how many signs and wonders God had done among the nations, through them.
And, saluting them, he went on to narrate, one by one, each of the things which God had wrought among the nations through his ministry.
For I wilt not dare to speak anything save of the things which Christ hath wrought out for himself through me for the obedience of nations, - -by word and deed,
Only they were hearing - He that was persecuting us formerly, now, is announcing the glad-message of the faith which he formerly laid waste;
