Text - Day Dreamer
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.
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?
8 And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went and called the child's mother.
