4:18 Sixth Reading
Moses left and returned to his father-in-law Jether. He said, 'I would like to leave and return to my people in Egypt, to see if they are still alive.'

'Go in peace,' said Jethro to Moses.
Vayelech Moshe vayashov el-yeter chotno vayomer lo elchah-na ve'ashuvah el-achay asher-beMitsrayim ve'er'eh ha'odam chayim vayomer Yitro le-Moshe lech leshalom.




Commentary:

Jether
  Yether in Hebrew, another form of Jethro (Exodus 3:1). Some say that the name was changed to Jethro when he became a believer (Rashi on Exodus 18:1). Here, we see that it was at this point, when he spoke to Moses, who had just returned from Sinai.
