The Birth of Moses

1 Now a man from the R24 house of Levi went and married F21 a daughter of Levi. 2 The woman conceived and bore a son; and when she saw that F22 he was beautiful, R25 F23 she hid him for three months. 3 But when she could hide him no longer, she got him a wicker R26 F24 basket F25 and covered it over with tar and pitch. Then she put the child into it and set it among the reeds R27 by the bank of the Nile. 4 His R28 sister stood at a distance to find F26 out what would happen F27 to him.

5 The daughter of Pharaoh came down to R29 bathe at the Nile, with her maidens walking alongside the Nile; and she saw the basket F28 among the reeds and sent her maid, and she brought it to her. 6 When she opened it, she saw F29 the child, and behold, the boy F30 was crying. And she had pity on him and said, "This is one of the Hebrews' children." 7 Then his sister said to Pharaoh's daughter, "Shall I go and call a F31 nurse for you from the Hebrew women that she may nurse the child for you?" 8 Pharaoh's daughter said to her, "Go ahead." So the girl 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 The child grew, and she brought him to Pharaoh's daughter and he R30 became her son. And she named him Moses, F32 and said, "Because I drew F33 him out of the water."

11 Now it came about in those days, when R31 Moses had grown up, that he went out to his brethren and looked on their hard R32 F34 labors; and he R33 saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his brethren. 12 So he looked F35 this way and that, and when he saw there was no one around, he struck R34 down the Egyptian and hid him in the sand. 13 He went out the R35 next day, and behold, two Hebrews were fighting F36 with each other; and he said to the offender, F37 "Why are you striking your companion?" 14 But he said, "Who R36 made you a prince F38 or a judge over us? Are you intending F39 to kill me as you killed the Egyptian?" Then Moses was afraid and said, "Surely the matter has become known."

Moses Escapes to Midian

15 When Pharaoh heard of this matter, he tried to kill Moses. But Moses R37 fled from the presence of Pharaoh and settled F40 in the land of Midian, and he sat down by R38 a well.

16 Now the R39 priest of Midian had seven daughters; and they R40 came to draw water and filled the troughs to water their father's flock. 17 Then the shepherds came and drove them away, but Moses R41 stood up and helped them and watered their flock. 18 When they came to Reuel R42 their father, he said, "Why have you come back so soon today?" 19 So they said, "An Egyptian delivered us from the hand of the shepherds, and what is more, he even drew the water for us and watered the flock." 20 He said to his daughters, "Where is he then? Why is it that you have left the man behind? Invite him to F41 have something to eat." 21 Moses R43 was willing to dwell with the man, and he gave his daughter Zipporah R44 to Moses. 22 Then she gave birth to a R45 son, and he named him Gershom, F42 for he said, "I have been a R46 sojourner F43 in a foreign land."

23 Now it came about in the course of those many days that the king of Egypt died. And the sons of Israel sighed R47 because of the bondage, and they cried out; and their R48 cry for help because of their bondage rose up to God. 24 So God R49 heard their groaning; and God remembered His R50 covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. 25 God R51 saw the sons of Israel, and God took F44 notice of them.
