Exo 2:1 And a man went from the house of Levi and took a daughter of Levi.
Exo 2:2 And the woman conceived and bore a son; and she saw him, that he was beautiful. And she concealed him three months.
Exo 2:3 And she was not able to hide him any longer, and she took a basket for him made of papyrus, and she daubed it with bitumen and with pitch. And she put the child in it, and placed it in the reeds by the lip of the Nile.
Exo 2:4 And his sister took her stand from a distance, to know what would be done to him.
Exo 2:5 And the daughter of Pharaoh went down to bathe at the Nile. And her slave women were walking on the side of the Nile. And she saw the basket in the midst of the reeds, and sent her slave-girl and took it.
Exo 2:6 And she opened it and saw the child, and, behold, a boy crying! And she had pity on him and said, This one is of the children of the Hebrews.
Exo 2:7 And his sister said to Pharaoh’s daughter, Shall I go and call a woman for you, a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for you?
Exo 2:8 And Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, Go. And the girl went and called the child’s mother.
Exo 2:9 And Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, Take this child away and nurse him for me, and I will give your wages. And the woman took the child and nursed him.
Exo 2:10 And the child grew, and she brought him to the daughter of Pharaoh. And he became a son to her, and she called his name Moses, and said, Because I drew him out of the water.
