Shepherd

.

The shepherd. Moses who fed the flocks of Jethro, his father-in-law.

“Sing, heavenly muse, that on the secret top

Of Oreb or of Sinai didst inspire

That shepherd, who first taught the chosen seed

In the beginning how the heavens and earth

Rose out of chaos.”


Milton: Paradise Lost, bk. i. 8.

N.B. Oreb, or Horeb and Sinai, are two heights of one mountain.
