And there went aa man of the house of Levi, and took to wife a daughter of Levi. 2 *And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and bwhen 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 cof bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in dthe flags by the river’s brink. 4 And ehis sister stood afar off, to wit what would be done to him. 5 And the fdaughter 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 gher son. And she called his name ||Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water.
