Baby moses. Copyrighted.

One Hebrew mother hid her newborn son, but after three months could no longer conceal him. So she laid her baby in a basket covered with tar, and placed it in the reeds by the river’s bank.

When Pharaoh’s daughter came down to bathe at the river, she saw the basket among the reeds and she looked inside.

Baby Moses drawn out of the water. Copyrighted.
Pharaoh’s daughter named the baby, Moses, which means, “Drawn Out of the Water.”

When she saw the baby and he cried, she felt compassion toward him and said, “This is one of the Hebrews’ children.”

She took the baby and raised him as her son, calling him Moses, which means, “Drawn Out of the Water.”

So Moses became destined to inherit the Egyptian kingdom with all of its treasures. After Moses was grown, he went out among his Hebrew relatives who were all in bondage.

Moses stopping Egyptian from beating. Copyrighted.

As he observed their hardships, he saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew slave. When Moses thought no one was looking, he killed the Egyptian, and hid his body in the sand.

But Pharaoh heard about the Egyptian’s death and went after Moses to kill him, so Moses fled and lived in the land of Midian.

After forty years, that Pharaoh died. The Children of Israel groaned under their slavery, and their cry rose up unto God. So God set about to honor His covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
