002:002:001
And there went a man of the house of Levi,
and took to wife a daughter of Levi.


002:002:002
And the woman conceived,
and bare a son:
and when she saw him that he was a goodly child,
she hid him three months.


002:002:003
And when she could not 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.


002:002:004
And his sister stood afar off,
to wit what would be done to him.


002:002:005
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.


002:002:006
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.


002:002:007
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?


002:002:008
And Pharaoh's daughter said to her,
Go.
And the maid went and called the child's mother.


002:002:009
And Pharaoh's daughter said unto her,
Take this child away,
and nurse it for me,
and I will give thee thy wages.
And the women took the child,
and nursed it.


002:002:010
And the child grew,
and she brought him unto 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.


002:002:011
And it came to pass in those days,
when Moses was grown,
that he went out unto his brethren,
and looked on their burdens:
and he spied an Egyptian smiting an Hebrew,
one of his brethren.


002:002:012
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 sand.


002:002:013
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,
Wherefore smitest thou thy fellow?


002:002:014
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.


002:002:015
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.


002:002:016
Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters:
and they came and drew water,
and filled the troughs to water their father's flock.


002:002:017
And the shepherds came and drove them away:
but Moses stood up and helped them,
and watered their flock.


002:002:018
And when they came to Reuel their father,
he said,
How is it that ye are come so soon to day?


002:002:019
And they said,
An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds,
and also drew water enough for us,
and watered the flock.


002:002:020
And he said unto his daughters,
And where is he?
why is it that ye have left the man?
call him,
that he may eat bread.


002:002:021
And Moses was content to dwell with the man:
and he gave Moses Zipporah his daughter.


002:002:022
And she bare him a son,
and he called his name Gershom:
for he said,
I have been a stranger in a strange land.


002:002:023
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 came up unto God by reason of the bondage.


002:002:024
And God heard their groaning,
and God remembered his covenant with Abraham,
with Isaac,
and with Jacob.


002:002:025
And God looked upon the children of Israel,
and God had respect unto them.
