And Jethro priest of Midian, Moses’s father-in-law, heard all that God had done for Moses and for Israel His people, that the LORD had brought Israel out of Egypt. Not only did Jethro hear about it, everyone else heard about it too. Rahab tells Joshua’s spies For we have heard how the LORD dried up the waters of the Sea of Reeds before you when you came out of Egypt. Moses, explains R. Zalman Sorotzkin, did not send boastful greetings telling his father-in-law or wife – or anyone else – of his great success. Indeed, the humblest of men had no time for self-promotion.
