Exodus 2:1-6 MSG

1 A man from the family of Levi married a Levite woman.
2 The woman became pregnant and had a son. She saw there was something special about him and hid him. She hid him for three months.
3 When she couldn't hide him any longer she got a little basket-boat made of papyrus, waterproofed it with tar and pitch, and placed the child in it. Then she set it afloat in the reeds at the edge of the Nile.
4 The baby's older sister found herself a vantage point a little way off and watched to see what would happen to him.
5 Pharaoh's daughter came down to the Nile to bathe; her maidens strolled on the bank. She saw the basket-boat floating in the reeds and sent her maid to get it.
6 She opened it and saw the child - a baby crying! Her heart went out to him. She said, "This must be one of the Hebrew babies."
