PROGRESS Victories over enemies and fatigue. Exodus l7 & 18
8Amalek came and fought with Israel in Rephidim. 9Moses said to Joshua, "Choose some men and go fight with Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in my hand." 10Joshua did as Moses said, and fought with Amalek. Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. 11So it was, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. 12But Moses' hands became heavy; so they took a stone and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. 13So Joshua defeated Amalek and his people. 15And Moses built an altar and called its name, The-Lord-Is-My-Banner. 2Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, took Zipporah, Moses' wife, 3with her two sons, of whom the name of one was Gershom and the other was Eliezer; and Jethro came to Moses in the wilderness, where he was encamped at the mountain of God. 8Moses told his father-in-law all that the Lord had done to Pharaoh and the Egyptians, all the hardship that had come upon them on the way, and how the Lord had delivered them. 13On the next day, Moses sat to judge the people, and the people stood before Moses from morning until evening. 14When Moses' father-in-law saw all that he did, he said, "What is this thing that you are doing for the people? Why do you alone sit, and all the people stand before you from morning until evening?" 15Moses said, "Because the people come to me to inquire of God. 16When they have a difficulty, they come to me, and I judge between one and another; and make known the statutes of God and His laws." 17Moses' father-in-law said to him, "The thing that you do is not good. 19Listen to my voice. 21Select from the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness;and place them to be rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens. 22Let them judge the people at all times. Every great matter they shall bring to you; but every small matter they shall judge. It will be easier for you, for they will bear the burden with you. 23 If you do this, and God so commands, you will be able to endure, and all this people will go to their place in peace." 24So Moses heeded the voice of his father-in-law and did all that he had said.
