Exodus 2

2:1 And there went a man of the house of Levi, and married a
 daughter of Levi.
2:2 And the woman conceived, and bore a son: and when she saw
 him that he [was a] goodly [child], she hid him three months.
2:3 And when she could no 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.
2:4 And his sister stood afar off, to know what would be done to
2:5 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.
2:6 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.
2:7 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?
2:8 And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went
 and called the child's mother.
2:9 And Pharaoh's daughter said to 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.
2:10 And the child grew, and she brought him to 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.
2:11 And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown,
 that he went out to his brethren, and looked on their burdens:
 and he spied an Egyptian smiting a Hebrew, one of his brethren.
2:12 And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that
 [there was] no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the
2:13 And when he went out the second day, behold, two men of the
 Hebrews strove together: and he said to him that did the wrong,
 Why smitest thou thy fellow?
2:14 And he said, Who made thee a prince and a judge over us?
 intendest thou to kill me, as thou killedst the Egyptian? And
 Moses feared, and said, Surely this thing is known.
2:15 Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses.
 But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land
 of Midian: and he sat down by a well.
2:16 Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters: and they came
 and drew [water], and filled the troughs to water their
 father's flock.
2:17 And the shepherds came and drove them away: but Moses stood
 up and helped them, and watered their flock.
2:18 And when they came to Reuel their father, he said, How [is
 it that] you are come so soon to day?
2:19 And they said, An Egyptian delivered us from the hand of
 the shepherds, and also drew [water] enough for us, and watered
 the flock.
2:20 And he said to his daughters, And where [is] he? why [is]
 it [that] ye have left the man? call him, that he may eat
2:21 And Moses was content to dwell with the man: and he gave
 Moses Zipporah his daughter.
2:22 And she bore [him] a son, and he called his name Gershom:
 for he said, I have been a stranger in a strange land.
2:23 And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of
 Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the
 bondage, and they cried; and their cry ascended to God, by
 reason of the bondage.
2:24 And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his
 covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.
2:25 And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God had
 respect to [them].
