The Second Book of Moses, Called Exodus

Chapter 2

1

And there went4 a man of the house of Levi, and took4 [to wife] a daughter of Levi.

2

And the woman conceived,4 and bare4 a son: and when she saw4 him that he [was a] goodly [child], she hid4 him three months.

3

And when she could1 not longer hide53 him, she took4 for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed4 it with slime and with pitch, and put4 the child therein; and she laid4 [it] in the flags by the river's brink.

4

And his sister stood101 afar off, to wit2 what would be done11 to him.

5

And the daughter of Pharaoh came down4 to wash2 [herself] at the river; and her maidens walked6 along by the river's side; and when she saw4 the ark among the flags, she sent4 her maid to fetch4 it.

6

And when she had opened4 [it], she saw4 the child: and, behold, the babe wept.6 And she had compassion4 on him, and said,4 This [is one] of the Hebrews' children.

7

Then said4 his sister to Pharaoh's daughter, Shall I go4 and call1 to thee a nurse 3243 56 of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse55 the child for thee?

8

And Pharaoh's daughter said4 to her, Go.3 And the maid went4 and called4 the child's mother.

9

And Pharaoh's daughter said4 unto her, Take54 this child away, and nurse54 it for me, and I will give4 [thee] thy wages. And the woman took4 the child, and nursed55 it.

10

And the child grew,4 and she brought55 him unto Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. And she called4 his name Moses: and she said,4 Because I drew1 him out of the water.

11

And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown,4 that he went out4 unto his brethren, and looked4 on their burdens: and he spied4 an Egyptian 376 smiting56 an Hebrew, 376 one of his brethren.

12

And he looked4 this way and that way, and when he saw4 that [there was] no man, he slew55 the Egyptian, and hid4 him in the sand.

13

And when he went out4 the second day, behold, two men of the Hebrews strove12 together: and he said4 to him that did the wrong, Wherefore smitest55 thou thy fellow?

14

And he said,4 Who made1 thee a prince and a judge6 over us? intendest6 thou to kill2 me, as thou killedst1 the Egyptian? And Moses feared,4 and said,4 Surely this thing is known.8

15

Now when Pharaoh heard4 this thing, he sought17 to slay2 Moses. But Moses fled4 from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt4 in the land of Midian: and he sat down4 by a well.

16

Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters: and they came4 and drew4 [water], and filled17 the troughs to water53 their father's flock.

17

And the shepherds6 came4 and drove them away:17 but Moses stood up4 and helped55 them, and watered55 their flock.

18

And when they came4 to Reuel their father, he said,4 How [is it that] ye are come2 so soon14 to day?

19

And they said,4 An Egyptian 376 delivered52 us out of the hand of the shepherds,6 and also drew1 [water] enough2 for us, and watered55 the flock.

20

And he said4 unto his daughters, And where [is] he? why [is] it [that] ye have left1 the man? call3 him, that he may eat4 bread.

21

And Moses was content55 to dwell2 with the man: and he gave4 Moses Zipporah his daughter.

22

And she bare4 [him] a son, and he called4 his name Gershom: for he said,1 I have been a stranger in a strange land.

23

And it came to pass in process 7227 of time, that the king of Egypt died:4 and the children of Israel sighed11 by reason of the bondage, and they cried,4 and their cry came up4 unto God by reason of the bondage.

24

And God heard4 their groaning, and God remembered4 his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.

25

And God looked4 upon the children of Israel, and God had respect4 unto [them].
