Exodus 2

Ex 2:1

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

Ex 2:2

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

Ex 2:3

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.

Ex 2:4

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

Ex 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.

Ex 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.

Ex 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?

Ex 2:8

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

Ex 2:9

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 woman took the child, and nursed it.

Ex 2:10

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.

Ex 2:11

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.

Ex 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 sand.

Ex 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, Wherefore smitest thou thy fellow?

Ex 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.

Ex 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.

Ex 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.

Ex 2:17

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

Ex 2:18

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

Ex 2:19

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.

Ex 2:20

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.

Ex 2:21

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

Ex 2:22

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

Ex 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 came up unto God by reason of the bondage.

Ex 2:24

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

Ex 2:25

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