The Birth of Moses1 Now a man from a the house of Levi went and ▼
▼ Lit tookmarried a daughter of Levi. 2 The woman conceived and bore a son; and when she saw ▼
▼ Lit him thatthat he was ▼
▼ Lit good, e beautiful, she hid him for three months. 3 But when she could hide him no longer, she got him a ▼
▼ I.e. papyrus reeds, g wicker ▼
▼ Or chestbasket and covered it over with tar and pitch. Then she put the child into it and set it among the i reeds by the bank of the Nile. 4 j His sister stood at a distance to ▼
▼ Lit knowfind out what would ▼
▼ Lit be donehappen to him. 5 The daughter of Pharaoh came down m to bathe at the Nile, with her maidens walking alongside the Nile; and she saw the ▼
▼ Or chestbasket among the reeds and sent her maid, and she brought it to her. 6 When she opened it, she ▼
▼ Heb saw it, the childsaw the child, and behold, the ▼
▼ Or ladboy 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 ▼
▼ Lit a woman giving sucka 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 r he became her son. And she named him ▼
▼ Heb Mosheh, from mashahMoses, and said, “Because I ▼
▼ Heb mashahdrew him out of the water.” 11 Now it came about in those days u when Moses had grown up, that he went out to his brethren and looked on their ▼
▼ Lit burdens, w hard labors; and x he saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his brethren. 12 So he ▼
▼ Lit turnedlooked this way and that, and when he saw there was no one around, he z struck down the Egyptian and hid him in the sand. 13 He went out aa the next day, and behold, two Hebrews were ▼
▼ Or quarrelingfighting with each other; and he said to the ▼
▼ Or the guilty oneoffender, “Why are you striking your companion?” 14 But he said ad “Who made you a ▼
▼ Lit man, a princeprince or a judge over us? Are you ▼
▼ Lit saying in your heartintending to kill me as you killed the Egyptian?” Then Moses was afraid and said, “Surely the matter has become known.”
Moses Escapes to Midian15 When Pharaoh heard of this matter, he tried to kill Moses. But ag Moses fled from the presence of Pharaoh and ▼
▼ Lit dweltsettled in the land of Midian, and he sat down ai by a well. 16 Now aj the priest of Midian had seven daughters; and ak they came to draw water and filled the troughs to water their father’s flock. 17 Then the shepherds came and drove them away, but al Moses stood up and helped them and watered their flock. 18 When they came to am Reuel 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 ▼
▼ Lit that he may eat breadto have something to eat.” 21 ao Moses was willing to dwell with the man, and he gave his daughter ap Zipporah to Moses. 22 Then she gave birth to aq a son, and he named him ▼
▼ Cf Heb ger sham, a stranger thereGershom, for he said, “I have been as a ▼
▼ Heb gersojourner 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 au sighed because of the bondage, and they cried out; and av their cry for help because of their bondage rose up to God. 24 So aw God heard their groaning; and God remembered ax His covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. 25 ay God saw the sons of Israel, and God ▼
▼ Lit knew themtook notice of them.
