 4:19
 4:20
4:19 While Moses was still in Midian, God said to him, 'Go return to Egypt. All the men who seek your life have died.'
Vayomer Adonay el-Moshe beMidyan lech shuv Mitsrayim ki-metu kol-ha'anashim hamevakshim et-nafshecha.
4:20 Moses took his wife and sons and, putting them on a donkey, set out to return to Egypt. He also took the divine staff in his hand.
Vayikach Moshe et-ishto ve'et-banav vayarkivem al-hachamor vayashov artsah Mitsrayim vayikach Moshe et-mateh ha'Elohim beyado.



Commentary:

sons
  This indicates that Moses' second son, Eliezer (Exodus 18:4) had already been born. He might have just been born, and since it was before his circumcision, not yet named. See Exodus 4:24.
