Introducing Tsipporah

Tsipporah Part 1

 

 

“And Re’u’el her father answered and said to her, “Has ever such a thing happened that a man should be shut up in a prison without food for ten years, and that he should live?” Yashar 77:31

I love Tsipporah’s proclamation of the power of YAHUAH!  She probably learned from Mosheh the miraculous things that YAHUAH did and Tsipporah uses this opportunity to persuade her father to see if this Iviry who serves YAHUAH is still alive.  So Re’u’el agrees to see if Mosheh is alive.   They go to the prison and find him standing on his feet praising YAHUAH.  What a surprise this must have been to Re’u’el and all those around him!

Mosheh is then brought out, shaved and given bread.  Later when Mosheh is praying to YAHUAH in Re’u’el’s garden he sees the stick of YAHUAH:

Re’u’el knew the value of his daughter, Tsipporah, because he set a high goal, that if any man could pull the sapphire stick out of the ground then they could have Tsipporah as a wife.  Many came, but none could get it out, until Mosheh.  Mosheh simply looked at it and pulled it up, not knowing that if he did that Tsipporah would be his woman.

And so Mosheh becomes Tsipporah’s man (husband).  For 10 years, YAHUAH provided for Mosheh through Tsipporah.  She could have chosen not to help him at all. However she was courageous enough to help the man that helped her and her sisters.
