Moses killed an Egyptian when he saw the Egyptian beat a Herbew man.Interpret the following as you see it--Doesn't your own quite say that he killed an Egyptian?
And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out to his brothers, and looked on their burdens: and he spied an Egyptian smiting an Hebrew, one of his brothers. And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand. And when he went out the second day, behold, two men of the Hebrews strove together: and he said to him that did the wrong, Why smite you your fellow?
Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelled in the land of Midian: and he sat down by a well. Moses and all the others flee Egypt and are scattered throughout the land.
Exodus 2:11 One day, after Moses had grown up, he went out to his own people and observed their hard labor. He saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his own people.
Later, he saw two Hebrews argue with each other and he tried to calm them, and one of the Hebrews said - Are you going to kill me as you did the Egyptian?
And Moses decided to hide away because it became known and the Pharaoh sought to punish him.
