Exodus 2:1-4

1 A man of the house of Levi went and took a daughter of Levi as his wife.  2 The woman conceived, and bore a son. When she saw that he was a fine child, she hid him three months.  3 When she could no longer hide him, she took a papyrus basket for him, and coated it with tar and with pitch. She put the child in it, and laid it in the reeds by the river's bank.  4 His sister stood far off, to see what would be done to him.
