Exodus 2:20-22 Modern English Version (MEV)

20 He said to his daughters, “So where is he? Why is it that you have left the man? Call him so that he may eat bread.”

21 Moses was content to dwell with the man, and he gave Zipporah, his daughter, to Moses. 22 Then she gave birth to a son, and he called his name Gershom, for he said, “I have been a sojourner in a foreign land.”

20 “And where is he?” Reuel asked his daughters. “Why did you leave him? Invite him to have something to eat.”

21 Moses agreed to stay with the man, who gave his daughter Zipporah to Moses in marriage. 22 Zipporah gave birth to a son, and Moses named him Gershom,[a] saying, “I have become a foreigner in a foreign land.”


  1. Exodus 2:22 Gershom sounds like the Hebrew for a foreigner there.
