After Joseph died, an evil king ruled Egypt. He was afraid of Joseph's huge
family. He made slaves of the people and made them work very hard building
cities and working in the fields. He was afraid the boys would become soldiers
and fight against him. He ordered that all the boy babies be killed. When
Moses was born, his mother hid him for 3 months. Then she made a basket of
grasses and tar to make a small boat and put him in the Nile River. Pharaoh's
daughter found him. His sister ran to get their mother to be a nurse for the
child. The daughter of Pharaoh adopted him. When he was grown, he had to leave
Egypt and went to the land of Midian. One day while caring for sheep, he saw a
strange sight. A bush was on fire, but it didn't burn up. God spoke to him
from the burning bush and told him to go to Egypt and free the people of
Israel from slavery. Moses was afraid and didn't want to go, but he went. His
brother Aaron went with him. Moses and Aaron went to see Pharaoh. They told
him that God wanted the children of Israel to leave Egypt, but Pharaoh said he
didn't know the Lord and would not let the people leave. God had given Moses
and Aaron the power to work miracles. Aaron threw his rod down and it became a
snake. Pharaoh's magicians threw their rods down and they became snakes, but
Aaron's snake ate their snakes. God was showing his power. Ten plagues came
upon the Egyptians because Pharaoh would not let the people leave. A plague is
something really bad that happens and causes a lot of suffering and death.
Finally after the tenth plague, when his son died, Pharaoh let them go.
