During the time of Exodus chapter2, the Pharaoh over Egypt had ordered that every new born boy from the Israelites be killed. But a man from the house of Levi had a child, and his wife hid the child for 3 months. Eventually she couldn't hide hide him anymore. She then put him in a basket and placed him in the Nile River. Now if I was her I would be thinking that putting the baby in the water had to be the dumbest thing possible. I mean there are crocodiles, hippos and other things that could kill the baby in that river. So why did she put him in the river? I have no clue, but oddly enough it worked, and he was found by the daughter of Pharaoh. Then the sister of the baby spoke to the Pharaoh's daughter saying that she could find someone to raise the child for her. Pharaoh's daughter agreed and the mother of the baby was chosen to raise her own child, plus she was payed to do it. So in the end the child was safe from danger and his true mother got to raise him. Later, this child grew up to save the people of Israel from slavery.
