Watering the Flocks

CARING FOR THE GOATS BY THE GIRLS Among the Beduin Arabs where camels engage the attention of the men folks, the task of caring for the goats is assigned to the young women of the home. These shepherdesses sometimes have a difficult time in watering their flocks, if perchance the camel herders come in from one of their five-day waterless periods of grazing. These girls are not apt to get much consideration from these men. The Sacred Record tells how Moses befriended Jethro’s daughters when they had to fight for an opportunity to give water to their flocks. One of these girls afterwards became the wife of Moses (Exodus 2:15-21).
