And Her Two Sons

54) “And her two sons.” Were her sons not the sons of Moses? Because Zipporah labored with them without her husband, the Torah calls them, “her sons,” and not “his sons.” Even though they were Moses’ sons, it speaks the truth, for they were certainly her sons, since Moses connected in another place, high and holy, and it was not respectful toward him to call them “his sons.” Although they were his sons, due to the honor of that place to which he connected, Divinity, here it refers to them as “her sons.” Afterwards, it calls them “his sons” because at the time when they reached Moses, Moses was conversing with Divinity. After he parted from Divinity and went out toward his father-in-law, it is written, “Then Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law, came with his sons.”

55) Certainly, because of the honor of Divinity, which is the bonding of the upper one to which Moses bonded, it is written, “her sons.” And why does it write, “Then Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law, came with his sons and his wife to Moses,” calling them, “his sons”? It is because it is all one. When it says “his sons,” it means Jethro’s sons, since after Moses came to him he had sons.

56) And so it was with Jacob. When he came to Laban and lived with him, he had sons. Here, too, when Moses lived with Jethro, he had sons, and he brought his entire household with him to put them under the wings of Divinity. Jethro said to Moses, “I, your father-in-law, am coming to you, as well as your wife, and her two sons with her. It does not say, “And your two sons.” How do we know that Jethro had sons? It is written, “The sons of the Kenite, Moses’ father-in-law, went up from the city of palms,” and he left his sons with Moses.
