Holman Bible Dictionary
(zihp poh' ruh) Personal name meaning, “small bird” or “sparrow.” Moses' first wife (some believe the woman named in Numbers 12:1
may be a reference to Zipporah, too) and mother of his children, Gershom and Eliezer ( Exodus 2:21-22
; Exodus 18:4
). She was one of the daughters of Reuel, a priest of Midian. She saved Moses' life when the Lord sought to kill him by circumcising Gershom (Exodus 4:24-25
). It appears that Zipporah stayed with her father until Moses had led the people out of Egypt (Exodus 18:2-6
