Exodus 4:24-26

{4:24} And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that the LORD met him, and sought to kill him.
{4:25} Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast [it] at his feet, and said, Surely a bloody husband [art] thou to me.
{4:26} So he let him go: then she said, A bloody husband [thou art,] because of the circumcision.
