Bible Names H-M: Jethro


Jethro in Easton's Bible Dictionary his excellence, or gain, a prince or priest of Midian, who succeeded his father Reuel. Moses spent forty years after his exile from the Egyptian court as keeper of Jethro's flocks. While the Israelites were encamped at Sinai, and soon after their victory over Amalek, Jethro came to meet Moses, bringing with him Zipporah and her two sons. They met at the "mount of God," and "Moses told him all that the Lord had done unto Pharaoh" (Ex. 18:8). On the following day Jethro, observing the multiplicity of the duties devolving on Moses, advised him to appoint subordinate judges, rulers of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties, and of tens, to decide smaller matters, leaving only the weightier matters to be referred to Moses, to be laid before the Lord. This advice Moses adopted (Ex. 18). He was also called Hobab (q.v.), which was probably his personal name, while Jethro was an official name. (See MOSES T0002602.)

Jethro in Hitchcock's Bible Names his excellence; his posterity

Jethro in Naves Topical Bible -Called RAGUEL and REUEL -(A priest of Midian) -Moses spent forty years of exile with, and married his daughter Ex 2:15-22; 3:1; 4:18; Nu 10:29
http://www.bible-history.com/naves/J/JETHRO/


Jethro in Smiths Bible Dictionary (his excellence) was priest or prince of Midian. Moses married his daughter Zipporah. (B.C. 1530.) On account if his local knowledge he was entreated to remain with the Israelites throughout their journey to Canaan. Nu 10:31,33 (He is called REUEL in Ex 2:18 and RAGUEL in Nu 10:29, the same word int he original for both). Reuel is probably his proper name, and Jethro his official title.--ED.)

Jethro in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE jeth'-ro, je'-thro (yithro, "excellence," Ex 3:1; 4:18b; 18:1-12 (in 4:18a, probably a textual error, yether, "Iether," the King James Version margin, the Revised Version margin); Septuagint always Iothor): The priest of Midian and father-in-law (chothen) of Moses. 1. His Relation to Reuel and Hobab: It is not easy to determine the relation of Jethro to Reuel and Hobab. If we identify Jethro with Reuel as in Ex 2:18; 3:1 (and in Ant, III, iii; V, ii, 3), we must connect "Moses' father-in-law" in Nu 10:29 immediately with "Reuel" (the King James Version "Raguel"), and make Hobab the brother-in-law of Moses. But while it is possible that chothen may be used in the wider sense of a wife's relative, it is nowhere translated "brother-in-law" except in Jdg 1:16; 4:11 ("father-in-law," the King James Version, the Revised Version margin). If we insert, as Ewald suggests (HI, II, 25), "Jethro son of" before "Reuel" in Ex 2:18 (compare the Septuagint, verse 16, where the name "Jethro" is given), we would then identify Jethro with Hobab, the son of Reuel, in Nu 10:29, taking "Moses' father-in-law" to refer back to Hobab. Against this identification, however, it is stated that Jethro went away into his own country without any effort on the part of Moses to detain him (Ex 18:27), whereas Hobab, though at first he refused to remain with the Israelites, seems to have yielded to the pleadings of Moses to become their guide to Canaan (Nu 10:29-32; Jdg 1:16, where Kittel reads "Hobab the Kenite"; 4:11). It may be noted that while the father-in-law of Moses is spoken of as a "Midianite" in Exodus, he is called a"Kenite" in Jdg 1:16; 4:11. From this Ewald infers that the Midianites were at that time intimately blended with the Amalekites, to which tribe the Kenites belonged (HI, II, 44)...

Jethro in Wikipedia In the Hebrew Bible, Jethro (Hebrew: יִתְרוֹ‎, Standard Yitro Tiberian Yiṯr; "His Excellence/Posterity" ; Arabic شعيب Shu- ayb) is Moses' father-in-law, a Kenite shepherd and priest of El Shaddai.[1] In Islam, Jethro is identified with Shuaib or Shoaib, one of the prophets in the Qur'an. He is also revered as a prophet in his own right in the Druze religion...
