Jesse Tree Holy Women ~ Pharaoh's Daughter

"Drop down dew ye heavens above

and let the clouds rain the just one."
Isaiah 45: 8

"When the child grew up, she brought him to Pharaoh's daughter, and she took him as her son." Exodus 2: 1-10

Although Pharaoh, king of Egypt, ordered all Hebrew baby boys to be destroyed at birth, his daughter rescued Moses from his basket in the Nile and raised him the royal household until he was an adult. This woman, who saw to the survival of the hero of the Exodus, is known to us only as Pharaoh's daughter. Her name, her dynasty, the particular pharaoh who was her father are facts that have been lost to us (Woman Word by Miriam Therese Winter).
