The prophet and lawgiver.[1]
In the 80th year of this man the sons of Israel came out of Egypt, where they had lived for 215 years. How then does God declare to Abraham, that "your seed will be a sojourner for 400 years"? Rather, it is clear that the [duration of the] sojourning of the people should be reckoned from the ascension of Abraham from Haran.[2] For the sojourning was not only in Egypt, but also in the land of Canaan. For Moses says: the sojourning of the sons of Israel in the land of Canaan and in Egypt [lasted for] 430 years. And [the sojourning] of Abraham, from the ascension from Canaan and in Egypt until the birth of Isaac [lasted for] 25 years, and from Isaac until Jacob 60 [years], and from Jacob until Levi 87 [years], from Levi until Kohath 45 [years], from Kohath until Abram 63 [years]; from Moses until the Exodus 80 [years]. And thus Israel came out of Egypt.[3]
When Moses was born, because his parents were afraid of the Egyptians, they prepared a wickerwork made of byblus, which in its construction resembled a basket, and they made it sufficient in size for a baby to lie comfortably in it. Then they rubbed it with asphalt and cast it into the river. And Thermouthis, the daughter of the king, took him up.[4] When he became three years old, God lifted up an admirable height for his age.[5]
[Note] that Moses fasted for 80 days, 40 [days] before and 40 [days] after he had destroyed the tables that were made of the stone lapis lazuli, written by the finger of God.[6]
[Note] that nobody was so indifferent that when gazing at Moses he would not be amazed by his beauty of form.[7]
