Parsha Shemot, Part 4: Pharaoh's daughter raises Moshe

Ch. 2 verses 7-14: Moshe refuses to nurse from an Egyptian woman, so Miriam suggests that she bring a Jewish woman, his mother, and Pharaoh's daughter agrees. She weans him and returns him to her. She raises him and calls him Moshe. When he gets older he goes out among his people and sees an Egyptian beating a Jew he kills the Egyptian and buries him in the sand. The next day he sees two Jewish men fighting and he rebukes them. The aggressor responds "are you going to kill me as you did the Egyptian?" Moshe now feared because he felt that his deed would be reported to Pharaoh.
