The Well of Moses and Jacob

228) Happy are the righteous. Jacob fled from his brother and came across a well, Nukva. When the well saw him, the water recognized their owner and rose to him as MAN. They rejoiced with him, and Rachel, his spouse, conjoined with him there. Moses fled from Pharaoh and came across a well. The water saw him, recognized their owner, and rose to him as MAN, and his spouse, Zipporah, conjoined with him there.

229) What is the difference between Moses and Jacob? It is written about Jacob, “And it came to pass, when Jacob saw Rachel … Jacob went near and rolled the stone from the well’s mouth.” And what does it say about Moses? “And the shepherds came and drove them away; but Moses stood up and helped them.”

Moses certainly knew that he would find his mate there once he saw the waters rising toward him. Moreover, the spirit of holiness never parted with him, and he knew in it that Zipporah would be his mate. Moses said, “When Jacob came here and the waters rose toward him, a man came toward him who gathered him into his home and gave him all that was needed. Certainly, the same will happen to me.

230) Jethro was a priest of idolatry. When he saw that there was no truth in idolatry, he parted with this worship. Hence, the people rose and ostracized him. When they saw that his daughters came to water his flock, they drove them away. Initially, they were pasturing his flock themselves, since he was their priest. But when Moses saw—by the spirit of holiness—that this was done to him because of idolatry, he promptly stood up and helped them, and watered their flock. It was all done for envy for the Creator.
