Moses lived for 120 years. His first 40 years was spent in an Egyptian palace as a prince. The second 40 years was spent as a shepherd in Midian. However, Moses became the leader who led the Israelites out of their life of slavery in Egypt during the last 40 years of his life.

A Levi man married a Levite woman and gave birth to a son. At that time, the King of Egypt ordered the Hebrew midwives to kill all the Hebrew boy that were born by throwing them into the River Nile.

To save the boy, his mother got a papyrus basket, coated it with tar and pitch and put the baby boy in it and put it among the reeds along the bank of the River Nile. The boy’s sister stood at a distance to see what would happen to this little boy.

That time, Pharaoh’s daughter was bathing in the Nile. She saw the basket among the reeds, and sent her slave girl to get it. She opened it and saw the baby, crying. The boy’s sister approached Pharaoh’s daughter to get one of the Hebrew women to nurse the baby or her, and Pharaoh’s daughter agreed.

The boy’s mother took care of the baby and nursed him in the palace. When the child grew older, she took him to Pharaoh’s daughter and he became her son. She named him ‘Moses’, meaning “ I drew him out of the water.”
