Exodus 2:1-10

1 And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took [to wife] a

daughter of Levi. 2 And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and

when she saw him that he [was a] goodly [child], she hid him three

months. 3 And when she could not longer hide him, she took for

him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch,

and put the child therein; and she laid [it] in the flags by the

river's brink. 4 And his sister stood afar off, to wit what would

be done to him. 5 And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash

[herself] at the river; and her maidens walked along by the

river's side; and when she saw the ark among the flags, she sent

her maid to fetch it. 6 And when she had opened [it], she saw the

child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him,

and said, This [is one] of the Hebrews' children. 7 Then said his

sister to Pharaoh's daughter, Shall I go and call to thee a nurse

of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for thee? 8 And

Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went and called

the child's mother. 9 And Pharaoh's daughter said unto her, Take

this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will give [thee] thy

wages. And the woman took the child, and nursed it. 10 And the

child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh's daughter, and he

became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said,

Because I drew him out of the water.
