When she saw that he was a fine child, she hid him for three months. But when she could hide him no longer, she got a papyrus basket for him and coated it with tar and pitch.
Then she placed the child in it and put it among the reeds along the bank of the Nile.
Jochebed did all she could to preserve the life of her son. She was not afraid of the kings edict (Heb.11:23). because her faith and hope were in God. She lived up to her name which means The LORD is my glory.
We too can live by that truth.
