Exodus 2 ©
Moses is born, and laid in an ark among the flags: he is found, and brought up by Pharaoh's daughter: he slayeth an Egyptian; reproveth an Hebrew; and is obliged to flee into Midian. The priest of Midian entertaineth him, and giveth him his daughter Zipporah, of whom is born Gershom. God respecteth the cry of the Israelites.
And Pharaoh's daughter said unto her, Take this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages. And the woman took the child, and nursed it.
And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.
And owhen he went out the second day, behold, two men of the Hebrews strove together: and he said to him that did the wrong, Wherefore smitest thou thy fellow?
And he said, Who made thee 2a prince and a judge over us? intendest thou to kill me, as thou killedst the Egyptian? And Moses pfeared, and said, Surely this thing is known.
And they said, An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds, and also drew water enough for us, and watered the flock.
¶And it came to pass ain process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel bsighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage.
And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God 6had respect unto them.
