Exodus 2:9-11 Living Bible (TLB)

“Take this child home and nurse him for me,” the princess instructed the baby’s mother, “and I will pay you well!” So she took him home and nursed him.

10 Later, when he was older, she brought him back to the princess and he became her son. She named him Moses (meaning “to draw out”[a]) because she had drawn him out of the water.

11 One day, many years later[b] when Moses had grown up and become a man, he went out to visit his fellow Hebrews and saw the terrible conditions they were under. During his visit he saw an Egyptian knock a Hebrew to the ground—one of his own Hebrew brothers!


  1. Exodus 2:10 The name Moses sounds like another Hebrew word meaning “to draw out.”
  2. Exodus 2:11 many years later, implied.
