In the Book of Exodus, it is described how Moses married Zipporah, the daughter of Jethro, a priest of Midian.

    Explanation
    After Moses confronted the Pharaoh, the Pharaoh doubled the work of the slaves by not providing them with straw but still demanding the same number of bricks to be produced.
