1 H376 A man H1004 of the house H3878 of Levi H3212 went H3947 and took H1323 a daughter H3878 of Levi as his wife.
2 H802 The woman H2029 conceived, H3205 and bore H1121 a son. H7200 When she saw H2896 that he was a fine H6845 child, she hid H7969 him three H3391 months.
3 H3201 When she could H5750 no longer H6845 hide H3947 him, she took H1573 a papyrus H8392 basket H2560 for him, and coated H2564 it with tar H2203 and with pitch. H7760 She put H3206 the child H7760 in it, and laid H5488 it in the reeds H2975 by the river's H8193 bank.
5 H6547 Pharaoh's H1323 daughter H3381 came down H7364 to bathe H2975 at the river. H5291 Her maidens H1980 walked H2975 along by the H3027 riverside. H7200 She saw H8392 the basket H8432 among H5488 the reeds, H7971 and sent H519 her handmaid H3947 to get it.
6 H6605 She opened H7200 it, and saw H3206 the child, H5288 and behold, the baby H1058 cried. H2550 She had compassion H559 on him, and said, H5680 "This is one of the Hebrews' H3206 children."
7 H269 Then his sister H559 said H6547 to Pharaoh's H1323 daughter, H3212 "Should I go H7121 and call H3243 a nurse H5680 for you from the Hebrew H802 women, H3243 that she may nurse H3206 the child for you?"
8 H6547 Pharaoh's H1323 daughter H559 said H3212 to her, "Go." H5959 The maiden H3212 went H7121 and called H3206 the child's H517 mother.
9 H6547 Pharaoh's H1323 daughter H559 said H3212 to her, "Take H3206 this child H3212 away, H3243 and nurse H5414 him for me, and I will give H7939 you your wages." H802 The woman H3947 took H3206 the child, H5134 and nursed it.
10 H3206 The child H1431 grew, H935 and she brought H6547 him to Pharaoh's H1323 daughter, H1121 and he became her son. H8034 She named H7121 him H4872 Moses, H559 and said, H4871 "Because I drew H4325 him out of the water."
11 H3117 It happened in those days, H4872 when Moses H1431 had grown H3318 up, that he went out H251 to his brothers, H7200 and looked H5450 at their burdens. H7200 He saw H4713 an Egyptian H5221 striking H5680 a Hebrew, H251 one of his brothers.
12 H6437 He looked H3541 this way H3541 and that way, H7200 and when he saw H376 that there was no one, H5221 he killed H4713 the Egyptian, H2934 and hid H2344 him in the sand.
13 H3318 He went out H8145 the second H3117 day, H8147 and behold, two H582 men H5680 of the Hebrews H5327 were fighting H559 with each other. He said H7563 to him who did the wrong, H5221 "Why do you strike H7453 your fellow?"
14 H559 He said, H7760 "Who made H376 you H8269 a prince H8199 and a judge H559 over us? Do you plan H2026 to kill H2026 me, as you killed H4713 the Egyptian?" H4872 Moses H3372 was afraid, H559 and said, H403 "Surely H1697 this thing H3045 is known."
15 H6547 Now when Pharaoh H8085 heard H1697 this thing, H1245 he sought H2026 to kill H4872 Moses. H4872 But Moses H1272 fled H6440 from the face H6547 of Pharaoh, H3427 and lived H776 in the land H4080 of Midian, H3427 and he sat down H875 by a well.
16 H3548 Now the priest H4080 of Midian H7651 had seven H1323 daughters. H935 They came H1802 and drew H4390 water, and filled H7298 the troughs H8248 to water H1 their father's H6629 flock.
17 H7462 The shepherds H935 came H1644 and drove them away; H4872 but Moses H6965 stood up H3467 and helped H8248 them, and watered H6629 their flock.
18 H935 When they came H7467 to Reuel, H1 their father, H559 he said, H4069 "How H935 is it that you have returned H4116 so early H3117 today?"
19 H559 They said, H4713 "An Egyptian H5337 delivered H3027 us out of the hand H7462 of the shepherds, H1802 and moreover he drew H1802 water H8248 for us, and watered H6629 the flock."
20 H559 He said H1323 to his daughters, H5800 "Where is he? Why is it that you have left H376 the man? H7121 Call H398 him, that he may eat H3899 bread."
21 H4872 Moses H2974 was content H3427 to dwell H376 with the man. H5414 He gave H4872 Moses H6855 Zipporah, H1323 his daughter.
22 H3205 She bore H1121 a son, H8034 and he named H7121 him H1647 Gershom, H559 for he said, H1616 "I have lived as a foreigner H5237 in a foreign H776 land."
23 H1992 It happened in the course H3117 of those many days, H4428 that the king H4714 of Egypt H4191 died, H1121 and the children H3478 of Israel H584 sighed H4480 because of H5656 the bondage, H2199 and they cried, H7775 and their cry H5927 came up H430 to God H5656 because of the bondage.
24 H430 God H8085 heard H5009 their groaning, H430 and God H2142 remembered H1285 his covenant H85 with Abraham, H3327 with Isaac, H3290 and with Jacob.
