#1. Jethro was the "priest of Midian" and the father-in-law of Moses (Exodus 3:1; 4:18). He was also called "Reuel" (Exodus 2:18) and is described as a Midianite in Numbers 10:29.
The original Midianites were probably descendants of Midian, one of Abraham's sons by Keturah (Genesis 25:1-4). The land where they lived then became known as "Midian" (Exodus 2:15). It is likely that the people who lived in the land of Midian were then all called Midianites, even if they were not descendants of Midian. For example, some descendants of Ishmael appear to be called Midianites (Genesis 37:25,28; Judges 8:24).
We don't know whether Jethro was a descendant of Midian, or whether he had some other ancestry but lived in the land of Midian.
In Judges 1:16, Jethro is described as a "Kenite" but that may not relate directly to his ancestry. The word keni in Aramaic means "smith" and it is thought that the Kenites may have been metal workers. - Author: Rob J. Hyndman
Moses Beacon quotes by Rob J. Hyndman
#2. People got to realize that the owners who been paying me are a lot richer than I am. It's not like I was born rich; I had to play basketball to make this type of money. - Author: Moses Malone
Moses Beacon quotes by Moses Malone
#3. I would believe any religion that could prove it had existed since the beginning of the world. But when I see Socrates, Plato, Moses, and Mohammed I do not think there is such a one. All religions owe their origin to man. - Author: Napoleon Bonaparte
Moses Beacon quotes by Napoleon Bonaparte
#4. Do not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God. - Author: Moses
Moses Beacon quotes by Moses
#5. The answer to what we're looking for, fixing the world with love, has to be traced back to something, and we can only trace it back to the God who is love. If we dive into the rest of Genesis and say, "What is this 'day' nonsense? As modern people, we can't believe that," then we have already missed the point. God has revealed to us through Moses the foundations of our desire for love and we want to talk about matter? When we lie in bed at night, do we miss matter or do we miss love? We miss love. - Author: Zach Weihrauch
Moses Beacon quotes by Zach Weihrauch
#6. A book is a most delightful companion. It gives, and does not take. - Author: Moses Ibn Ezra
Moses Beacon quotes by Moses Ibn Ezra
#7. But I am not a monster because I kill. Killing is easy. I am a monster because I accept the hard choices. (Frank Moses) - Author: Warren Ellis
Moses Beacon quotes by Warren Ellis
#8. Thank God we don't know a lot about Shakespeare or Moses or Homer or Lautreamont. These are the best guys we got, and their art is powerful because they're mysterious. - Author: Cass McCombs
Moses Beacon quotes by Cass McCombs
#9. Holy love has a way of consuming some. This is what is meant by the one who said, 'You have ravished our hearts' (Sg. Of Sgs. 4:9). And it makes others bright and overjoyed. In this regard it has been said: 'My heart was full of trust and I was helped, and my flesh has revived' (Ps. 27:7). For when the heart is cheerful, the face beams (cf. Prov. 15:13), and a man flooded with the love of God reveals in his body, as if in a mirror, the splendor of his soul, a glory like that of Moses when he came face to face with God (cf. Ex. 34:29-35). - Author: John Climacus
Moses Beacon quotes by John Climacus
#10. From what cause the rite of baptism first proceeded is not expressed formally in the scripture, but it may be probably thought to be an imitation of the law of Moses concerning leprosy, wherein the leprous man was commanded to be kept out of the camp of Israel for a certain time, after which time being judged by the priest to be clean, he was admitted into the camp after a solemn washing. And this may therefore be a type of the washing in baptism, wherein such men as are cleansed of the leprosy of Sin by Faith, are received into the church with the solemnity of baptism. - Author: Thomas Hobbes
Moses Beacon quotes by Thomas Hobbes
#11. I pulled myself out of the memory. My breathing was ragged. I couldn't push out the feeling that the memory left. Something so whole that my body craved and curled around it. I thought my soul was leaning toward the stone, wishing desperately to cling to a truth, a beacon that could guide me back to myself. That raw tenderness. That kiss that said goodbye, come back, and I love you all at once. This memory showed me hope. And that was something I could chase to the ends of the earth. - Author: Roshani Chokshi
Moses Beacon quotes by Roshani Chokshi
#12. Mose Allison is a beautiful musician. - Author: Willie Dixon

#13. I am not eloquent. - Author: Moses

Miles into the ocean
All out alone
Searching for a beacon - Author: Uday Mane
Moses Beacon quotes by Uday Mane
#18. The petitions of Moses discomfited the enemy more than the fighting of Joshua. Yet both were needed. No, in the soul's conflict, force and fervor, decision and devotion, valour and vehemence, must join their forces, and all will be well. - Author: Charles Spurgeon
Moses Beacon quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#19. Once freedom lights its beacon in man's heart, the gods are powerless against him. - Author: Jean-Paul Sartre
Moses Beacon quotes by Jean-Paul Sartre
#20. Moses was good at his job. He was efficient. He was always busy making the room clean. But at the same time, he could read the family's emotions. He never made a medical diagnosis or overstepped the bounds of his position. But he shared a lot of practical, commonsense wisdom gleaned from helping hundreds of families make it through traumatic surgery. Moses reinforced the good: "You're sitting up today; that's a good boy." He offered encouragement: "You're brave. You're strong. You can do it." He gave practical advice: "You've been through a lot, but you're coming through it now. Your body knows what to do. Just rest and let it do it." Matt and Mindi looked forward to visits from Moses because as he made their hospital room clean, he also gave them hope. - Author: David Sturt
Moses Beacon quotes by David Sturt
#21. The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it. - Author: Moses
Moses Beacon quotes by Moses
#22. Moon, O Moon, how wondrous are you among God's many works! You shine with majesty and brilliance, a thousand times more brightly than the brightest star! You were created on the same day as the sun. You give light just as the sun gives light. But your light, O Moon, is even more important than the light of the sun. The sun is nearly superfluous, for it lights the daytime when we hardly need it. By day, the world is bright and we can already see clearly all that surrounds us. The wonder of your light, O Moon, comes by night when it is dark so that you are a lamp for our feet and a beacon for our eyes. Moon, O Moon, how wondrous you are! - Author: Seymour Rossel
Moses Beacon quotes by Seymour Rossel
#23. You have to have already convinced yourself that you are going to win no matter what other influences are. - Author: Edwin Moses
Moses Beacon quotes by Edwin Moses

Moses Beacon quotes by Moses
#25. My religion recognizes no obligation to resolve doubt other than through rational means; and it commands no mere faith in eternal truths - Author: Moses Mendelssohn
Moses Beacon quotes by Moses Mendelssohn
#26. Long Island is shaped the way it is largely because of Robert Moses. Long Island is a perfect example of how political power shapes people's lives every day. - Author: Robert Caro
Moses Beacon quotes by Robert Caro
#27. The most horrible wickedness and cruelties, and the greatest miseries that have troubled the human race began with this thing called revelation, or revealed religion ... It would be far, far better for us to let a thousand devils roam the world, and publicly preach the doctrine of devils (if there were such a thing, which there isn't), than to let one impostor and monster such a Moses, Joshua, Samuel or the Bible prophets come speaking the so-called word of God, and causing men to believe it. - Author: Thomas Paine
Moses Beacon quotes by Thomas Paine
#28. When God makes His presence felt through us, we are like the burning bush: Moses never took any heed what sort of bush it was - he only saw the brightness of the Lord. - Author: George Eliot
Moses Beacon quotes by George Eliot
#29. Moses could have walked in the door, and if he said he came from fixed income, Vinny wouldn't have trusted him, - Author: Michael Lewis
Moses Beacon quotes by Michael Lewis
#30. Moses, without any mercy, breaks all bruised reeds, and quenches all smoking flax. For the law requires personal, perpetual and perfect obedience from the heart, and that under a most terrible curse, but gives no strength. It is a severe task master, like Pharaoh's, requiring the whole tale ofbricks and yet giving no straw. Christ comes with blessing after blessing, even upon those whom Moses had cursed, and with healing balm for those wounds which Moses had made. - Author: Richard Sibbes
Moses Beacon quotes by Richard Sibbes
#31. Moses said to the LORD, "Oh, my Lord, I am not eloquent, either in the past or since you have spoken to your servant, but o I am slow of speech and of tongue." 11Then the LORD said to him, "Who has made man's mouth? Who makes him mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, the LORD? - Author: Anonymous
Moses Beacon quotes by Anonymous
#32. To me, a king is a lighthouse. A guide who can cast his glow across his kingdom and bring every last one of us out of the shadows. A beacon who we can look up to when the world seems lost. A bridge who can unite us when our differences seem to stark to reconcile. Tonight, we need a king who is all of those things. A king who can look each of you in the eye and make you feel that you won't just fight for him or his kingdom, but you'll fight for our way of life. - Author: Soman Chainani
Moses Beacon quotes by Soman Chainani
#33. Anxiously you ask, 'Is there a way to safety? Can someone guide me? Is there an escape from threatened destruction?' The answer is a resounding yes! I counsel you: Look to the lighthouse of the Lord. There is no fog so dense, no night so dark, no gale so strong, no mariner so lost but what its beacon light can rescue. It beckons through the storms of life. It calls, 'This way to safety; this way to home. - Author: Thomas S. Monson
Moses Beacon quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#34. Certain of Poe's tales possess an almost absolute perfection of artistic form which makes them veritable beacon-lights in the province of the short story. - Author: H.P. Lovecraft
Moses Beacon quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#35. Martin, perceiving some shelves filled with English books, said to the senator, "I fancy that a republican must be highly delighted with those books, which are most of them written with a noble spirit of freedom."
"It is noble to write as we think," said Pococurante; "it is the privilege of humanity. Throughout Italy we write only what we do not think; and the present inhabitants of the country of the Caesars and Antonines dare not acquire a single idea without the permission of a Dominican father. I should be enamored of the spirit of the English nation, did it not utterly frustrate the good effects it would produce by passion and the spirit of party."
Candide, seeing a Milton, asked the senator if he did not think that author a great man.

"Who?" said Pococurante sharply; "that barbarian who writes a tedious commentary in ten books of rumbling verse, on the first chapter of Genesis? that slovenly imitator of the Greeks, who disfigures the creation, by making the Messiah take a pair of compasses from
Heaven's armory to plan the world; whereas Moses represented the
Diety as producing the whole universe by his fiat? Can I think you have any esteem for a writer who has spoiled Tasso's Hell and the Devil; who transforms Lucifer sometimes into a toad, and at others into a
pygmy; who makes him say the same thing over again a hundred times; who metamorphoses him into a school–divine; and who, by an absurdly serious imitation of Ariosto's comic i - Author: Voltaire
Moses Beacon quotes by Voltaire
#36. You may remember that the Lord God appeared to His people at Mount Sinai. That encounter was His great theo-phany, His foundational appearance to the children of Israel. Yet it happened in a strange way. His glory, His visible gracious presence, was veiled in a cloud that was dark by day and bright at night. He concealed Himself in that deep dark cloud so that He could reveal Himself safely while speaking. So, from a human point of view, the closer they came to Him, the deeper they came into the darkness. Thus in Exodus 20:21 we read that "the people stood far off, while Moses drew near to the thick darkness where God was." The - Author: John W. Kleinig
Moses Beacon quotes by John W. Kleinig
#37. Is it me? Is it like I have a beacon that only dogs and men with severe emotional problems can hear? - Author: Lisa Kudrow
Moses Beacon quotes by Lisa Kudrow
#38. Judaism is an historical religion. - Author: Moses Hess
Moses Beacon quotes by Moses Hess
#39. Without hesitation, I place Freud among the heroes. He dispossessed the Jewish people of the greatest and most influential of all heroes-Moses. - Author: Salvador Dali
Moses Beacon quotes by Salvador Dali
#40. You know why Wainwright and his kind fear me, don't you?.. They fear that we know the truth about the origins of their faiths. How long, they wonder, have we been observing humanity? Have we watched Mohammad begin the hegira, or Moses giving the Jews their law? Do we know all the false in their stories they believe? - Author: Arthur C. Clarke
Moses Beacon quotes by Arthur C. Clarke
#41. The focus of all life is its economy, the mode through which every living creature produces its material existence. I know no other criterion for the evaluation of social life except that of social economy. In society, just like anywhere else, the mode of production is the focus around which revolve all the modes of life: in the historical life of conscious beings, it is also the focus of all modes of consciousness. - Author: Moses Hess
Moses Beacon quotes by Moses Hess
