||Moses said to his father-in-law, Chovev son of Reuel the Midianite, 'We are now on our way to the place that God promised to give us. Come with us and we will let you share the benefit of all the good things that God has promised Israel.'
Vayomer Moshe le-Chovav ben-Re'u'el haMidyani choten Moshe nos'im anachnu el-hamakom asher amar Adonay oto eten lachem lechah itanu vehetavnu lach ki-Adonay diber-tov al-Yisra'el.
||'I would rather not go,' replied [Chovev]. 'I wish to return to my land and my birthplace.'
Vayomer elav lo elech ki im-el-artsi ve'el-moladeti elech.
