Ex:1:20: Therefore God dealt well with the midwives: and the people multiplied, and waxed very mighty.
Ex:1:21: And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he made them houses.
Ex:1:22: And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born ye shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye shall save alive.
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.
Ex:3:1: Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.
Ex:3:2: And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
