Exodus 2:10 Moses was raised in the opulence of a royal court of great antiquity. Egypt, much like today, was a status conscious society in which status determined a person’s quality of life.

    Proverbs 18 ​​   1 An unfriendly person pursues selfish ends     and against all sound judgment starts quarrels. 2 Fools find no pleasure in understanding     but delight in airing their own opinions. 3 When wickedness comes, so does contempt,     and with shame comes reproach. 4 The words of the mouth are deep waters,     but the fountain of wisdom is a rushing stream. 5 It is not good to be partial to the wicked     and so deprive the innocent of justice. 6 The lips of fools bring them
