2 And aa man of the house of Levi went and took as wife a daughter of Levi. 2 So the woman conceived and bore a son. And bwhen she saw that he was a beautiful child, she hid him three months. 3 But when she could no longer hide him, she took an ark of cbulrushes for him, daubed it with dasphalt and epitch, put the child in it, and laid it in the reeds fby the river’s bank. 4 gAnd his sister stood afar off, to know what would be done to him.
5 Then the hdaughter of Pharaoh came down to bathe at the river. And her maidens walked along the riverside; and when she saw the ark among the reeds, she sent her maid to get it. 6 And when she opened it, she saw the child, and behold, the baby wept. So she had compassion on him, and said, “This is one of the Hebrews’ children.”
8 And Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Go.” So the maiden went and called the child’s mother. 9 Then Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Take this child away and nurse him for me, and I will give you your wages.” So the woman took the child and nursed him. 10 And the child grew, and she brought him to Pharaoh’s daughter, and he became iher son. So she called his name 1Moses, saying, “Because I drew him out of the water.”
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
