Exodus 2:1-8

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

 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.

 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.

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

 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.

 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.

 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?

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