“Thou wilt surely weare away, both thou, and this people that is with thee: for this thing is too heauy for thee; thou art not able to performe it thy selfe alone.”
King James Version (KJV)
15. And Moses said vnto his father in law, Because the people come vnto me to enquire of God. 16. When they haue a matter, they come vnto mee, and I iudge betweene one and another, and I doe make them know the statutes of God and his Lawes. 17. And Moses father in law saide vnto him, The thing that thou doest, is not good. 18. Thou wilt surely weare away, both thou, and this people that is with thee: for this thing is too heauy for thee; thou art not able to performe it thy selfe alone. 19. Hearken now vnto my voyce, I will giue thee counsell, and God shall be with thee: Be thou for the people to Godward, that thou mayest bring the causes vnto God: 20. And thou shalt teach them ordinances and lawes, and shalt shew them the way wherein they must walke, and the worke that they must doe. 21. Moreouer thou shalt prouide out of all the people able men, such as feare God, men of trueth, hating couetousnesse, and place such ouer them, to bee rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tennes.
