Exodus 2:1-10 New English Translation (NET Bible)
The Birth of the Deliverer
2 [a] A man from the household[b] of Levi married[c] a woman who was a descendant of Levi.[d] 2 The woman became pregnant[e] and gave birth to a son. When[f] she saw that[g] he was a healthy[h] child, she hid him for three months. 3 But when she was no longer able to hide him, she took a papyrus basket[i] for him and sealed it with bitumen and pitch. She put the child in it and set it among the reeds along the edge of the Nile.[j] 4 His sister stationed herself[k] at a distance to find out[l] what would[m] happen to him.
5 Then the daughter of Pharaoh[n] came down to wash herself[o] by the Nile, while her attendants were walking alongside the river,[p] and she saw the basket among the reeds. She sent one of her attendants,[q] took it,[r] 6 opened it,[s] and saw the child[t]—a boy,[u] crying![v]—and she felt compassion[w] for him and said, “This is one of the Hebrews’ children.”
7 Then his sister said to Pharaoh’s daughter, “Shall I go and get[x] a nursing woman[y] for you from the Hebrews, so that she may nurse[z] the child for you?” 8 Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Yes, do so.”[aa] So the young girl[ab] went and got[ac] the child’s mother.[ad] 9 Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Take this child[ae] and nurse him for me, and I will pay your[af] wages.” So the woman took the child and nursed him.
