After this there went a man of the house of Levi; and took a wife of his own kindred.
And she conceived, and bore a son: and seeing him a goodly child, hid him three months.
And when she could hide him no longer, she took a basket made of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and pitch: and put the little babe therein, and laid him in the sedges by the river’s brink,
His sister standing afar off, and taking notice what would be done.
And behold the daughter of Pharao came down to wash herself in the river: and her maids walked by the river’s brink. And when she saw the basket in the sedges she sent one of her maids for it: and when it was brought,
She opened it, and seeing within it an infant crying, having compassion on it, she said: This is one of the babes of the Hebrews.
