 2:19
2:18 When they came to their patriarch Reuel, he asked them, 'How did you get to come home so early today?'
Vatavonah el-Re'u'el avihen vayomer madua miharten bo hayom.
2:19 'An Egyptian stranger rescued us from some shepherds,' they replied. 'He also drew water for us and watered our sheep.'
Vatomarna ish Mitsri hitsilanu miyad haro'im vegam-daloh dalah lanu vayashk et-hatson.



Commentary:

Reuel
  Some say that he was their grandfather (cf. Numbers 10:29; Targum Yonathan; Rashbam; Ibn Ezra; Radak, Sherashim, s.v. Chathan). Others identify Reuel with Jethro (see Exodus 3:1; Mekhilta, Rashi, on Exodus 18:1; Josephus 2:12:1; see Sifri on Numbers 10:29). The name Reuel is also found in Genesis 36:4.
