1 There was a man descended from Levi who had taken a woman of Levi as his wife.
Num 26:59 1Chr 6:1-3 1Chr 23:12-14 Exod 6:16-20
2 She conceived and gave birth to a son and, seeing what a fine child he was, she kept him hidden for three months.
Heb 11:23 Acts 7:20 Ps 112:5
3 When she could hide him no longer, she got a papyrus basket for him; coating it with bitumen and pitch, she put the child inside and laid it among the reeds at the River's edge.
Acts 7:19 Exod 1:22 Gen 6:14 Gen 11:3 Isa 18:2 Matt 2:13 Matt 2:16
4 His sister took up position some distance away to see what would happen to him.
Exod 15:20 Num 26:59 Mic 6:4 Num 12:1-15 Num 20:1
5 Now Pharaoh's daughter went down to bathe in the river, while her maids walked along the riverside. Among the reeds she noticed the basket, and she sent her maid to fetch it.
Acts 7:21 Ps 9:9 Ps 12:5 Exod 8:20 Ps 46:1 Exod 7:15 1Kgs 17:6
6 She opened it and saw the child: the baby was crying. Feeling sorry for it, she said, 'This is one of the little Hebrews.'
1Pet 3:8 1Kgs 8:50 Acts 7:21 Neh 1:11 Ps 106:46 Prov 21:1
7 The child's sister then said to Pharaoh's daughter, 'Shall I go and find you a nurse among the Hebrew women to nurse the child for you?'
Exod 2:4 Num 26:59 Exod 15:20 Num 12:1
8 'Yes,' said Pharaoh's daughter, and the girl went and called the child's own mother.
Ps 27:10 Exod 6:20 Isa 46:3-4 Ezek 16:8
9 Pharaoh's daughter said to her, 'Take this child away and nurse it for me. I shall pay you myself for doing so.' So the woman took the child away and nursed it.
10 When the child grew up, she brought him to Pharaoh's daughter who treated him like a son; she named him Moses 'because', she said, 'I drew him out of the water.'
1John 3:1 Acts 7:21-22 Gal 4:5 Heb 11:24 1Sam 1:20 Gen 4:25 Gen 16:11
11 It happened one day, when Moses was grown up, that he went to see his kinsmen. While he was watching their forced labour he also saw an Egyptian striking a Hebrew, one of his kinsmen.
Heb 11:24-26 Exod 1:11 Matt 11:28 Acts 7:22-24 Exod 3:7 Exod 5:9 Exod 5:14
12 Looking this way and that and seeing no one in sight, he killed the Egyptian and hid him in the sand.
13 On the following day he came back, and there were two Hebrews, fighting. He said to the man who was in the wrong, 'What do you mean by hitting your kinsman?'
1Cor 6:7-8 Acts 7:26-28
14 'And who appointed you', the man retorted, 'to be prince over us and judge? Do you intend to kill me as you killed the Egyptian?' Moses was frightened. 'Clearly that business has come to light,' he thought.
Luke 12:14 Gen 19:9 Matt 21:23 Acts 7:26-28 Acts 7:35 Gen 13:8 Gen 37:8-11
15 When Pharaoh heard of the matter, he tried to put Moses to death, but Moses fled from Pharaoh. He went into Midianite territory and sat down beside a well.
Acts 7:29 Heb 11:27 Gen 24:11 Gen 29:2 1Kgs 19:1-3 1Kgs 19:13-14 Exod 4:19
16 Now there was a priest of Midian with seven daughters. They used to come to draw water and fill the troughs to water their father's flock.
Exod 3:1 Gen 24:11 1Sam 9:11 Gen 14:18 Gen 24:14-20 Gen 29:6-10 Gen 41:45
17 Some shepherds came and drove them away, but Moses sprang to their help and watered their flock.
Gen 29:10 Gen 21:25 Exod 2:12 Gen 26:15-22
18 When they returned to their father Reuel, he said to them, 'Why are you back so early today?'
Exod 3:1 Exod 4:18 Num 10:29 Exod 18:1-12 Num 19:20
19 'An Egyptian protected us from the shepherds,' they said, 'and he even drew water for us and watered the flock.'
Gen 29:10 Gen 50:11
20 'And where is he?' he asked his daughters. 'Why did you leave the man there? Ask him to eat with us.'
Gen 31:54 Gen 43:25 1Tim 5:10 Gen 18:5 Gen 19:2-3 Gen 24:31-33 Gen 29:13
21 Moses agreed to stay on there with the man, who gave him his daughter Zipporah in marriage.
Heb 13:5 1Tim 6:6 Exod 2:10 Exod 4:20-25 Exod 18:2-6 Gen 31:38-40 Heb 11:25
22 She gave birth to a son, whom he named Gershom 'because', he said, 'I am an alien in a foreign land.'
Acts 7:29 Heb 11:13-14 Exod 22:21 1Chr 16:20 1Chr 23:14-17 1Chr 29:15 Exod 2:10
23 During this long period the king of Egypt died. The Israelites, groaning in their slavery, cried out for help and from the depths of their slavery their cry came up to God.
Jas 5:4 Acts 7:30 Gen 18:20-21 Acts 12:23-24 Deut 26:6-7 Exod 3:7-9 Deut 24:15
24 God heard their groaning; God remembered his covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
Ps 105:42 Exod 6:5 Gen 26:3 Gen 26:24 Ps 102:20 Ps 106:45 Gen 15:14-18
25 God saw the Israelites and took note.
