Exodus 2:9-11 Expanded Bible (EXB)
9 ·The king’s [L Pharaoh’s] daughter said to the woman, “Take this baby and nurse him for me, and I will pay you.” So the woman took her baby and nursed him. 10 When the child ·grew older [L was weaned], the woman took him to the ·king’s [L Pharaoh’s] daughter, and she adopted the baby as her own son. The king’s daughter named him Moses [C sounds like the Hebrew word for “draw/pull up”], because she had ·pulled [drawn] him out of the water.
