Let’s shout out the names!
- Levi’s wife! What’s her name? We’ll have to look for it . . .. Jochebed! (From Exodus 6:20)
- Moses’ sister . . .. Miriam!
- Pharaoh’s daughter . . . Let’s do some more digging for her name . . . Bathia! (It’s in the Talmud)
Shiphrah, Puah, Jochebed, Miriam and Bathia are heroes. They saw opportunities, took risks, and made it possible, ultimately, for the Israelites to be delivered out of slavery in Egypt.
I wish we had more written about these heroes. I wish we would never forget their names, either.
Shiphrah, Puah, Jochebed, Miriam and Bathia.
