When Moses’ father-in-law saw all that he was doing for the people, he said, “What is this 1  that you are doing for the people? 2  Why are you sitting by yourself, and all the people stand around you from morning until evening?”

NET © Notes

tn Heb “what is this thing.”

sn This question, “what are you doing for the people,” is qualified by the next question. Sitting alone all day and the people standing around all day showed that Moses was exhibiting too much care for the people – he could not do this.
