Ex. 2:1-10
1 There was a man descended from Levi who had taken a woman of Levi as his wife.2 She conceived and gave birth to a son and, seeing what a fine child he was, she kept him hidden for three months.3 When she could hide him no longer, she got a papyrus basket for him; coating it with bitumen and pitch, she put the child inside and laid it among the reeds at the River’s edge.4 His sister took up position some distance away to see what would happen to him.

5 Now Pharaoh’s daughter went down to bathe in the river, while her maids walked along the riverside. Among the reeds she noticed the basket, and she sent her maid to fetch it.6 She opened it and saw the child: the baby was crying. Feeling sorry for it, she said, ‘This is one of the little Hebrews.’ 7The child’s sister then said to Pharaoh’s daughter, ‘Shall I go and find you a nurse among the Hebrew women to nurse the child for you?’ 8‘Yes,’ said Pharaoh’s daughter, and the girl went and called the child’s own mother.9 Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, ‘Take this child away and nurse it for me. I shall pay you myself for doing so.’ So the woman took the child away and nursed it.10 When the child grew up, she brought him to Pharaoh’s daughter who treated him like a son; she named him Moses ‘because’, she said, ‘I drew him out of the water.’
