Narrator: Now a man of the tribe of Levi married a woman of the same tribe, and she had a son. When she saw that he was a beautiful child, she hid him for three months. But when she was no longer able to hide him, she took a papyrus container, coated it with asphalt and pitch, placed the child in it, and put it among the reeds along the bank of the Nile.┬áThen she placed it in the reeds by the bank of the river Nile, while his sister stayed near by to see what would happen to him. The daughter of Pharaoh came down to bathe in the Nile, and while her maids were walking along the river’s bank, she saw the basket among the reeds and sent her waiting-maid to bring it. When she opened it and saw the child, the boy was crying; and she felt sorry for him and said

Pharoah’s Daughter: This is one of the Hebrew children.

Narrator: Then his sister said to Pharaoh’s daughter

Moses’ Sister: Shall I go and call one of the Hebrew women to nurse the child for you?

Pharoah’s Daughter: Go.

Narrator: So the maiden went and called the child’s mother, and Pharaoh’s daughter said to her:

Pharoah’s Daughter: Take this child away and nurse it for me, and I will pay you your wages.

Narrator: Then the woman took the child and nursed it. When the child had grown up, she brought him to Pharaoh’s daughter, and he became her son; and she named him Moses, for she said:

Pharoah’s Daughter: I drew him out of the water.
