Exodus 2

5Now the daughter of Pharaoh came down to bathe at the river, and her maidens walked along the bank; she saw the ark among the rushes and sent her maid to fetch it.
6When she opened it, she saw the child; and behold, the baby cried. And she took pity on him and said, This is one of the Hebrews' children!
7Then his sister said to Pharaoh's daughter, Shall I go and call a nurse of the Hebrew women to nurse the child for you?
8Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go. And the girl went and called the child's mother.
9Then Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Take this child away and nurse it for me, and I will give you your wages. So the woman took the child and nursed it.
10And the child grew, and she brought him to Pharaoh's daughter and he became her son. And she called him Moses, for she said, Because I drew him out of the water.

Pharaoh's daughter knew that a decree had gone out from her father that all Hebrew children must be murdered. In spite of the decree, she sent the baby to be nursed by his mother and then to be brought back to her to be raised as an Egyptian.  The enemy raised the promise! ***

 10And the child grew, and she brought him to Pharaoh's daughter and he became her son. And she called him Moses, for she said, Because I drew him out of the water.
11One day, after Moses was grown, it happened that he went out to his brethren and looked at their burdens; and he saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of [Moses'] brethren.
12He looked this way and that way, and when he saw no one, he killed the Egyptian and hid him in the sand.
13He went out the second day and saw two Hebrew men quarreling and fighting; and he said to the unjust aggressor, Why are you striking your comrade?
14And the man said, Who made you a prince and a judge over us? Do you intend to kill me as you killed the Egyptian? Then Moses was afraid and thought, Surely this thing is known.
15When Pharaoh heard of it, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from Pharaoh's presence and took refuge in the land of Midian, where he sat down by a well.
Moses knew his heritage, Pharaoh knew Moses' heritage, but Moses looked like an Egyptian to the general population. What a dilema. Moses was rased to honor the Egyptians but his heart went out to his people. He could have turned hs back and lived the good life. God had other plans for Moses.

23However, after a long time [nearly forty years] the king of Egypt died; and the Israelites were sighing and groaning because of the bondage. They kept crying, and their cry because of slavery ascended to God.
24And God heard their sighing and groaning and [earnestly] remembered His covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.
25God saw the Israelites and took knowledge of them and concerned Himself about them [knowing all, understanding, remembering all.***
