One baby boy was born to a Hebrew family from the tribe of Levi. His family hid him for three months. When they couldn't hide him any longer, they put him in a basket waterproofed with pitch, and his sister Miriam floated him down the Nile River. She waited in the reeds by the shore of the river to see what would happen to him. The daughter of pharaoh came down to bathe at the river and she found the the baby floating on the water. She decided to raise him as her son, but she couldn't feed him. Miriam came to her and offered to find her a nursemaid. Pharaoh's daughter agreed. Miriam brought the baby back to her mother, Yocheved, to be nursed. Pharaoh's daughter named the baby Moses.
