Just do it.

Chovav – Yisro – Reuel – Chever – HaKeini.

Who are these people? Are they all the same? Are they members of one family? What is their significance?

Moshe pleads with his in-law, “Please come with us. We’ll be good to you.”

“No. I’m going to my homeland.”

Yisro and his family mean something to us. They are with us, but they go back home. They come back, but hang out with Amalek.

Why can’t they commit?* In a way, it’s sad.

Beware this inability to commit.

Jump in the pool.

*Now many of them did eventually join. Osniel/Othniel, one of the early Judges, led a group of them to commit.
