8 G2532 And G1334 Moses described G* G3588 to G1059.2 his father-in-law G1473 G3956 all G3745 as much as G4160 the lord did G2962 G3588 G* to Pharaoh, G2532 and G3588 to the G* Egyptians, G1752 on account G3588 G* of Israel; G2532 and G3956 all G3588 the G3449 trouble, G3588 the one G1096 coming G1473 to them G1722 in G3588 the G3598 way; G2532 and G3754 that G1807 [2rescued G1473 3them G2962 1 the lord] G1537 from out of G5495 the hand G* of Pharaoh, G2532 and G1537 from out of G5495 the hand G3588 of the G* Egyptians.

11 G3568 Now G1097 I know G3754 that G3173 the lord is great G2962 G3844 above G3956 all G3588 the G2316 gods, G1752 because of G3778 of this -- G3754 that G2007 they made an attempt G1473 against them.

14 G2532 And G1492 Jethro seeing G* G3956 all G3745 as much as G4160 he did G3588 to the G2992 people, G3004 says, G5100 What G3778 is this G3739 which G1473 you G4160 do G3588 to the G2992 people? G1302 Why G1473 do you G2521 sit down G3441 alone, G3956 and all G1161 G3588 the G2992 people G3936 stand by G1473 you G575 from G4405.1 morning G2193 until G1166.2 afternoon?
15 G2532 And G3004 Moses says G* G3588 to G1059.2 his father-in-law, G1473 G3754 Because G3854 [3come G4314 4to G1473 5me G3588 1the G2992 2people] G1567 to seek after G2920 a judgment G3844 from G3588 G2316 God.
16 G3752 For whenever G1063 G1096 there is G1473 to them G485 a dispute, G2532 and G2064 they should come G4314 to G1473 me, G1252 I litigate G1538 each, G2532 and G4822 I instruct G1473 them G3588 in the G4366.2 orders G3588 G2316 of God, G2532 and G3588 G3551 his law. G1473
17 G2036 [4said G1161 1And G3588 2the G1059.2 3father-in-law] G3588 to G* Moses G4314 to G1473 him, G3756 Not G3723 rightly G1473 do you G4160 do G3588 G4487 this thing. G3778
18 G5356 [5corruption G2704 3will be corrupted G505.1 4in unsufferable G2532 1And G1473 2you], G2532 and G3956 all G3588 G2992 this people, G3778 G3739 which G1510.2.3 is G3326 with G1473 you. G926 [2 is heavy G1473 3on you G3588 G4487 1This thing], G3778 G3756 you will not G1410 be able G4160 to act G1473 yourself G3441 alone.

20 G2532 And G1263 you shall testify G1473 to them G3588 the G4366.2 orders G3588 G2316 of God, G2532 and G3588 G3551 his law, G1473 G2532 and G4591 you shall signify G1473 to them G3588 the G3598 ways G1722 in G3739 which G4198 they shall go G1722 by G1473 them, G2532 and G3588 the G2041 works G3739 which G4160 they shall do.
21 G2532 And G1473 you G4572 yourself G4629.4 look about G575 all G3956 G3588 the G2992 people G435 for men G1415 mighty G2532 and G2318 godly! G435 [2men G1342 1just] G3404 detesting G5243 pride. G2532 And G2525 you shall place G1473 them G1909 over G1473 them G5506 commanders of thousands, G2532 and G1543 commanders of hundreds, G2532 and G4004.6 commanders of fifties, G2532 and G1176.1 commanders of tens.
22 G2532 And G2919 they shall judge G3588 the G2992 people G3956 at every G5610 hour. G3588 But the G1161 G4487 [2thing G3588 G5246 1enormous] G399 they shall offer G1909 unto G1473 you; G3588 but the G1161 G1024 little matters G3588 of the G2917 judgments, G2919 they shall judge G1473 them; G2532 and G2893 they shall lighten the load G575 from G1473 you, G2532 and G4878 shall give aid G1473 to you.
23 G1437 If G3588 G4487 this thing G3778 G4160 you do, G2532 then G2729 [2will strengthen G1473 3you G3588 G2316 1God], G2532 and G1410 you will be able G3936 to stand, G2532 and G3956 all G3588 G2992 this people G3778 G2240 shall come G1519 unto G3588 G1438 their own G5117 place G3326 with G1515 peace.
24 G191 [3hearkened G1161 1And G* 2Moses] G3588 to the G5456 voice G3588 G1059.2 of his father-in-law, G1473 G2532 and G4160 he did G3745 as much as G2036 he said G1473 to him.
25 G2532 And G1951 Moses chose G* G435 [2men G1415 1mighty] G575 from G3956 all G* Israel, G2532 and G4160 appointed G1473 them G1909 over G1473 them G5506 as commanders of thousands, G2532 and G1543 commanders of hundreds, G2532 and G4004.6 commanders of fifties, G2532 and G1176.1 commanders of tens, G2532 and G1122.3 judicial recorders.
